The Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever has webbed feet, and the coloring of the coat comes in shades of orange or red, often with white markings.

The weight of the Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever is around 35-50 pounds, and he is around 17-22 inches in height.
 

Temperament
One of the smallest retrievers around, the Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever is a reliable, enthusiastic, and cheerful dog. These dogs make great companions and pets, and are well suited to the more inexperienced dog owner as well as those with experience. The Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever has a mild manner and a gentle nature. He is a spirited and energetic dog, and enjoys plenty of exercise and play - his favorite activities include playing fetch and swimming. Early socialization to avoid timidity is important with this breed, and plenty of mental and physical stimulation is required to keep him alert and interested. The Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever does have a tendency to chew, which needs to be kept under control, and some can be strong headed and dominant.

It must be noted that the Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever is a high-energy and active dog who requires plenty of exercise, both physical and mental. This is not the breed for everyone and if you are considering bringing a Toller into your home, be aware that a commitment to keep the dog busy is extremely important.

 
History
Native to Yarmouth County, Nova Scotia, the Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever is one of four recognized Canadian breeds of purebred dogs. (The other three are the Newfoundland, Canadian Eskimo Dog and the now extinct Tahltan Bear Dog.) First recognized by the Canadian Kennel Club in 1945, the Toller also holds the status of being the official dog of Nova Scotia.
 
Health
If you are considering the adoption of a Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever puppy, or any breed, it is very important to be selective in choosing a responsible and reputable breeder. Ensure that the prospective puppy's parents have all health clearances. Breeding of any dog should not be done until after they have been proven to be free of evidence of significant hereditary diseases.
