However, they are both considered the same breed. The Kennel Club standard for Retriever (Golden) was defined in 1913. The American Kennel Club standard was adopted in 1925. Approximately 60% of all American Golden Retrievers will die from cancer (information was obtained from UC Davis). By gender, 57% of females and 66% of males will die from cancer. Other studies mention a death rate of 60-72% from cancer, such as studies done by the GRCA. English cancer rates of 38.8% were discovered in a TKC study. The average age of an American Golden Retriever lifespan was found to be 10 years and 8 months in a GRCA 1998 study. Information was obtained from The Kennel Club, American Kennel Club, Golden Retriever Club of America, and UC Davis ******¢
