It's great you have the heart to pick up a stray. Flat Coated Retrievers don't shed more than many long haired dogs, but it's black and you do notice more,Goldens shed TONS more. Check your local feed store rather than a "pet" store. There are many quality foods with out the premium price, check the ingredients. They should start with meat. A regiment of heart worm and flea medication is advisable.
