Newfoundland

 

Origin:

 

By the 18th century, the Newfoundland had established a reputation for itself as an accomplished all purpose water dog, lifeguard and draft animal. The English were thoroughly impressed with the animal and began to import them in great numbers. This, along with restrictions placed on ownership of the dog on its native island, led to depressed numbers of the breed in North America during the 19th century.

Newfoundland puppies will grow up to become a large, heavily coated, well balanced dog that is deep-bodied, heavily boned, muscular, and strong. A good specimen of the breed has dignity and proud head carriage.
