Dog of the month: Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever

The Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever, or Toller for short, is a Canadian medium sized dog bred primarily for hunting. The Toller is known to be athletic, compact, balanced, and powerful. They are very intelligent and affectionate, and have high energy.

The Toller was bred to retrieve from icy waters, and these dogs have a water-repellent double coat paired with a soft, dense undercoat. They're generally red, and have webbed feet.
