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.
