Goldie is a normal dog villager in the Animal Crossing series who appears in all games to date. Her name is likely derived from the Golden Retriever, a breed of dog which she bears a resemblance to. Her catchphrase is onomatopoeia of a dog's bark, relating to her species.

In New Horizons, Goldie has the nature hobby and may be found reading a book pertaining to an item she is studying, which can be either flowers, bugs, fish, or fossils.

Characteristics[edit]

Artwork of Goldie from Animal Crossing.

Appearance[edit]

Goldie is a golden dog that resembles a Golden Retriever, hence her name. She has a few darker patches of beige on her muzzle, paws, feet, tail, and ears, as well as a beige spot on her left eye. Her eyes are oblong with brown sclera and white pupils.

Personality[edit]

Below is a brief description of the normal personality. For more information, click here.

Goldie has a normal personality, meaning that she is friendly and motherly towards the player, asking what she can do to help them often. She also enjoys the usual hobbies, though she feels neutral about them, hence her personality name. When asking the player for favors, Goldie often feels bad asking the player to do so, as she is sensitive and easily gets sad, although she rarely gets angry. She gets along with most villagers, except those who are cranky, and sometimes even snooty. Most normal villagers take a moderate amount of time to befriend, and the player must be patient in attempting to receive her picture. She wakes up at 5 AM like other normal villagers, and goes to sleep at 1 AM. At a point she will want to collect clothing, so she will ask the player to try and find a certain piece of clothing, as some villagers do the same. The player may also receive her picture if they do this many times.
