Breed

Chesapeake Bay Retriever

Chesapeake Bay Retrievers are strong, powerfully built gundogs standing anywhere from 21 to 26 inches at the shoulder, with females occupying the lower end of the range. A good-size male can weigh up to 80 pounds. The distinctive breed trait is a wavy waterproof coat that’s oily to the touch. Chessies are solid-colored, either "chocolate-y" brown, sedge (red-gold), or deadgrass (straw). The keen yellow-amber eyes draw attention to an eager, intelligent expression.
