Basic color to do a golden retriever, Raw Sienna, or Yellow Ochre? Any other suggestions?

Or maybe a mix of those 2 colours?

My golden retriever Ramsay is more of a burnt sienna with yellow ochre mix on the top of his body, and a light yellow ochre on the tips of his mane and his undercoat (the "fringe" hanging from his tail and his underbody). He looks like a 24 carat golden retriever  ;D , more of a reddish orange gold than a brownish gold.
Cheers,
Jani

 :thankyou:  Jani, that sounds about right for my daughters, too.  Been working on the background, pale pink couch, with a hot pink pillow, that the Golden has his head on.  Couch fabric is a busy floral pattern, which I think I will leave out, or maybe tone down quite a bit.  The other dog is sitting next to Golden, with his paw hanging over edge.
