Welcome to Shoreline Chessies!

It takes a tough dog to hunt waterfowl in the rough and icy shores of Chesapeake Bay in Maryland. The Chesapeake Bay Retriever--nicknamed the Chessie — was born for these tough conditions. The Chessie is believed to be descended from two Newfoundland puppies — Sailor and Canton--who survived a shipwreck in the area in 1807. They had great retrieving qualities and were bred to local dogs. The result was this brown dog with a thick, water-shedding coat, a bright and happy disposition, and intelligence and courage. Shoreline Chessies was founded in 2018 from the love of Chesapeake Bay Retrievers and the desire to produce high quality Chessie merchandise.

Theodore Roosevelt's Sailor Boy..

"Much the most individual of the dogs and the one with the strongest character was Sailor Boy; a Chesapeake Bay dog. He had a masterful temper and a strong sense of both dignity and duty" - Theodore Roosevelt
