Since Goldadors is not recognised as a breed, there is no standard size, colour, coat and characteristics that breeders follow. However, its appearance can be determined based on each unique features of its parentage, the Golden and the Labrador. Some Goldadors may tend to have the appearance of either parent, but normally its head is square and flat with a wide muzzle. It has long, floppy ears that drop toward its cheeks. The eyes are oval-shaped and are in different shades of brown. The nose is mostly black. The Goldador is typically a larger breed that weighs 60 to 80 pounds and stands 59 to 61 centimetres at the withers.
Goldadors wear short, close-lying double-layered coats, where the topcoat is short and thick while the undercoat is dense and soft (some with wavier hair). Generally, coat colours vary and include cream, gold, black, liver and chocolate. Goldadors are low maintenance when it comes to grooming, although they shed throughout the year and more during spring and autumn. Regardless, a weekly brushing to keep its coat from collecting loose and dead hair will suffice.
Other grooming regimens must not be overlooked to maintain the Goldadors overall health. Brush its teeth regularly, at least twice a week, to prevent tartar build-up, bad breath or worse, dental and gum disease. Its nails must be trimmed to avoid overgrowth, which is painful especially when a nails snag or are caught on carpets and upholstery. Ears must also be cleaned with a vet-approved solution to prevent infections.
