Newfoundland

Newfoundland


Height: 26-28 inches

Weight: 100-150 lbs.

Life Span: 8-10 yrs.

Breed Group: Guardian Dogs

Overview
While Newfoundlands are sweet-tempered, devoted companions, particularly for children, their size and deep bark make them good guard dogs as well.

If left alone too often Newfies will develop behavioral problems, notably home destruction. These dogs can be heavy droolers.

Appearance
The double coat is flat and water resistant. The outercoat is coarse, moderately long, and thick, either straight or with a wave; the undercoat, thinner in summer, is soft and dense. Coat color is black, black and white, brown, or gray.

Grooming & Exercise Needs
Newfoundlands need brushing and combing weekly, more often when shedding, to avoid matting. They need long walks and occasional swims.

Origins
The Newfoundland was developed on its namesake island in the 18th century to haul fishing nets and pull carts. They were also used to save people who were shipwrecked.

Special Alerts
It is especially important to obtain a Newfoundland from a reputable breeder and from stock whose hips have been certified by the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals or PennHip.

Breed-related health concerns: hip and elbow dysplasia, bloat, ectropion/entropion, allergic dermatitis, hypothyroidism, pemphigus foliaceous (an autoimmune skin disease causing ulcers and scabs to develop on the skin all over the body), subaortic stenosis.
