The ancestors of the Retriever of the bay of Chesapeake are less dark than in other races. Their origin you can mark in 1807, when an English ship shipwrecked in the coast of Maryland. An American ship, the Canton, rescued to the English company and two puppies of Newfoundland. A puppy was a called male Siribad that has been described as of a red one dark, while the other era a black female that became well-known as Canton like the ship that it rescued them. The puppies were taken to the families that had welcomed the English sailors and trained as collectors of ducks. Arrived the moment mated with several races of work of the area of the bay of Chesapealce. The blood that was added in the crossing was possibly that of the Otterhound and that of the Retrievers of curly hair and of flat hair.
