Celebrate man's best friend with one of our popular dog breed weathervanes! Whether you love the gentle and noble Golden Retriever, the energetic and loyal Labrador Retriever, or the feisty and confident Scottish Terrier, our dog weathervanes perfectly capture the charm and personality of each breed.
These happy-go-lucky dogs originated in Scotland during the mid to late 19th century. Wildfowl hunting was extremely popular among the Scottish gentry at the time, but the marshy terrain required a new breed of retriever that could easily work both land and water. Thus the Golden Retriever was born, an outgoing, trusting, eager-to-please dog that is relatively easy to train and a great family dog. Golden Retrievers take a joyous and playful approach to life and keep their puppyish behavior into adulthood. They love hunting and field work, but also excel at search-and-rescue and as guides for the blind. While their patient, trusting nature makes them poor guard dogs, they are excellent at making people feel welcome - even as a weathervane!
With their sweet, lovable, friendly personalities, it's easy to see why Labrador Retrievers are America's most popular dog breed. One of the most affectionate breeds, Labs are known for their loyalty and obedience, as well as their retrieving abilities. Accomplished sporting dogs, they can also frequently be found working as therapy or seeing-eye dogs, or performing screening and detection work for law enforcement. But they are most at home with their families, as their wonderful temperament and eagerness to please make them ideal family pets. Available in polished or patina finish, our playful Lab weathervanes are perfect for any home!
Independent and confident, Scotties have a dignified, almost-human character. Keenly alert and aloof to strangers, Scotties make excellent watchdogs. The well-known Scottie silhouette can be found on everything from clothing to candy to board games. They were also extremely popular among American presidents, including Eisenhower, George W. Bush, and Franklin D. Roosevelt. FDR was so fond of his dog, Fala, that there is even a statue of the Scottie at the FDR Memorial in Washington, D.C. This little dog with big personality makes a great addition to any roofline!
