Goldie is a normal dog villager from the Animal Crossing series, appearing in every game in the Animal Crossing up to date. Her name is based on the breed of dog she is, a Golden Retriever, with the "Golden" being turned into the name "Goldie." Her Japanese name, Caramel, is referring to her golden-brown coloring, similar to Daisy being named "Vanilla" in Japanese. Her catchphrase is a popular way to interpret the sound dogs make, and her Japanese catchphrase, wan, is the Japanese equivalent. In Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer, she is one of the three mandatory clients in the game, the others being Lopez and Carrie.

Like Rosie, Goldie is a highly popular villager in the Animal Crossing fandom, and is also considered an icon of the series. Almost, if not entirely, more than Rosie. Both have also appeared in every game in the Animal Crossing series (Though Rosie was also featured in Doubutsu no Mori (film), while Goldie was not.)



Goldie DnM.png

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, of which her eyes are a slim, oblong shape colored into a chocolate brown with cream pupils. She wears the Hippie Shirt in Animal Crossing, the Jade Check Print in Animal Crossing: Wild World and the Dapper Shirt from Animal Crossing: City Folk onwards as her initial clothing. Her picture quote in Animal Crossing: Wild World, which mentions a Labrador, may imply that Goldie herself is a Labrador. Her name comes from the dog species, "golden retriever" by taking the name "golden" and turning it into a name, "Goldie".


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. If you attach your town's native fruit to one of your letters, she may send back a non-native fruit. You may do this with most villagers. If you send her lots of letters with different gifts, she will stay in your town and not move away for a longer amount of time. This will also help you befriend her enough to obtain her picture in Animal Crossing: Wild World. She wakes up at 5 AM like other normal villagers, and goes to sleep at 1:00 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.
