Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever - genetic tests

The Toller or Canadian Retriever for short, is a medium-sized dog breed native to Canada, specifically the Nova Scotia peninsula. The retriever was originally a hunting dog and is still used for hunting in a number of countries. However, it is increasingly being used as a companion dog due to its manageability, friendly nature and excellent relationship with people of all ages. The Toller is an active sport dog that needs to unleash its endless energy: hunting, hiking, camping and of course swimming. The endless retrieving of ball or stick is almost fanatical in many dogs of that breed.
