Newfoundland Information, Pictures of Newfoundlands
Newfoundlands are true gentle giants. They combine the brawn of a Great Pyrenees with the sweet and laid-back personality of a Labrador. Patient, loving and fun, Newfoundlands blend perfectly with the household. They get along famously with the most vivacious and active children, and they are very polite around new people.
What They Are Like to Live With
Newfoundlands have a reputation for saving lives. While they may not be the most intense guard dogs, they have been known for rescuing loved ones from fires, drowning and other dangers. They are very good at keeping people out of harm’s way.
These are big, big dogs. If you live in small quarters or have issues sharing space, consider another canine. If you do have a big house and yard, you’ll still want to make space arrangements to accommodate a burly Newfoundland .
Newfoundands originated in the fishing villages of Newfoundland , Canada. For generations, they assisted fishermen by hauling nets, rescuing shipwrecked sailors and providing companionship during long days at sea. Eventually making their way to Europe and the U.S., they became popular working dogs, show dogs and pets. Back in Newfoundland, however, you can still find them working hard with the fishermen.The Look of a Newfoundland
Newfoundlands are large, big-boned dogs covered in coarse, heavy coats. They have big, broad heads with smooth faces, firm cheeks, well-developed muzzles and medium-sized ears that hang close. Their somewhat small, dark brown eyes are deeply set, and their strong necks slope down to full chests and broad backs with tails that usually hang down or curve slightly. Their thick, longish coats usually come in black, but can also be found in brown, gray and black & white. Overall, Newfoundlands carry their massive frames with dignity and strength.
