  • Overview

  • This distinctive dog is named after the Canadian province it originated in. Affectionately called “Newfies,” these dogs are known for their wonderful patience and gentleness with children. They are highly trainable and learn quickly. Newfoundlands are built to withstand icy temperatures; their webbed feet, thick, water-proof hair and incredible strength gives them their well-known bear-like look. The Newfoundland is most often solid black in color, although coloring can vary. Newfies are gentle-natured and devoted pets, and do best in larger living spaces as a result of their impressive size.
