Newfoundlands are a giant breed known for their gentle and sweet temperament. Newfoundlands are affectionate, patient, powerful, and have life-saving instincts. Bred to work with and rescue Canadian fishermen on the island of Newfoundland, this breed loves water and working with their owners.
If you have the space for this large, loveable breed, the Newfoundland is an excellent family companion and watchdog!
Sweet Temperament: Newfoundlands bring a calm and steady presence with them. They are patient, gentle, loving, and affectionate.
Watchful: Newfoundlands, although friendly, have a protective nature. Not only do they have an intimidating presence and loud bark, but they are courageously devoted to their humans and keep a watchful eye on them.
Drooler: Yes, Newfoundlands drool a lot. You’ll want to keep a towel nearby to wipe their mouths, especially after they eat or drink.
Giant Breed: When adopting a giant breed such as the Newfoundland, consider the commitment carefully. This breed will cost more to feed, have larger vet bills, and need more living space. Training Newfoundlands is especially important. A 150-pound dog that pulls on its leash or jumps up on people isn’t just annoying; it can be dangerous!
Strong Swimmer: Newfoundlands were bred for swimming – and rescuing drowning people. Newfoundlands don’t swim doggy-paddle style like other breeds – they have a special breaststroke which makes them extra powerful swimmers!
In the 1700s, the fishermen used the Newfoundland as a working dog and a companion. Why were Newfoundlands the perfect dog for these fishermen?
Newfoundlands have thick coats which keep them warm (and waterproof) when dragging a fish net to shore – or even saving someone’s life. That’s right, Newfoundlands are not only excellent swimmers, but they are strong enough to save a drowning person!
In addition to being companions, bringing in nets, and water rescues, Newfoundlands were also used to cart their owner’s catch into the village.
Newfoundlands have a strong instinct to rescue, and they are calm, loyal, and affectionate companions.
Explorers Lewis and Clark had a Newfoundland named Seaman travel with them for the entire trip.
Lord Byron had a beloved Newfoundland called Boatswain. He wrote a poem about Boatswain and had a large moment built for his dog. On the monument is an inscription written by Lord Bryon:
“Who possessed Beauty without Vanity
Strength without Insolence
Courage without Ferocity
And all the Virtues of Man without his Vices.”
President James Buchanan had a Newfoundland in the White House named Lara.
Perhaps the most famous Newfoundland is “Nana” from Peter Pan. “Nana” is hired as a nanny to care for Wendy, John, and Michael Darling.
Newfoundlands also appear in the classic book Jane Eyre by Charlotte
With admirable traits and abilities, the Newfoundland is one of the most beloved breeds in history.
The Newfoundland was registered by the AKC in 1886 and ranks forty out of all breeds registered with AKC.
A male Newfoundland measures 28 inches tall at the shoulder and weighs 130-150 pounds, and a female Newfoundland measures 26 inches tall at the shoulder and weighs 100-120 pounds.
As with any large or giant breed, a Newfoundland will need more space, more dog food, larger medication dosages, etc., than other dog breeds. Please consider the space, cost, and time required to care for a Newfoundland before adopting! Here are nine things you should know before adopting a Newfoundland.
Newfoundlands usually live 9-10 years.
Newfoundlands have thick, curly, oily hair. Their coats are often black, brown, gray, or white and black.
Newfoundlands are known for their massive size: 100-150 pounds! They have thick double coats, hanging ears, and huge, boxy heads.
Newfoundlands also have a bit of an oily coat. This means you may find oily marks on your dog’s bed or your furniture. It’s recommended that you bathe your Newfoundland once a month. Bathing more often than this could strip the coat of its natural oils.
Plan to take your Newfoundland to the groomer a few times a year for a trim. Learn more about grooming a Newfoundland here.
Newfoundlands are also droolers, so keep a towel nearby to wipe their mouths often and especially after eating or drinking.
Check your Newfie’s ears regularly for ear infections.
Your Newfoundland will also need its teeth brushed and nails trimmed regularly.
There are a number of health conditions that can affect Newfoundlands. While not every Newfoundland gets these conditions, it’s essential for owners to be aware of them.
Hip and Elbow Dysplasia
Because of their large size, Newfoundlands are especially at risk for hip and elbow dysplasia, two of the most common health issues in dogs.
Hip and elbow dysplasia occurs when the thigh bone doesn’t fit snugly into the hip and can result in limping, lameness, or arthritis if it’s not addressed. Hip and elbow dysplasia can be genetic, or it can be caused by environmental factors such as overeating or injuries.
Here are some ways to prevent hip dysplasia in your puppy:
- Ask the breeder for an OFA (Orthopedic Foundation for Animals) Hip Clearance. Dogs with hip dysplasia shouldn’t be bred.
- Talk to your vet about the right food for your puppy and stick to the correct amount to prevent unhealthy growth.
- Keep your puppy from running or jumping excessively on hard surfaces and from standing on their hind legs.
- Keep your Newfoundland a healthy weight. Obesity increases the chance of structural issues.
Protect Your Newfoundland From Obesity
Whatever dog breed you own, you can protect your dog from one of the most common health problems: obesity. One of the best ways to extend your dog’s life is by feeding them the correct amount of food and giving them adequate exercise.
Bloat, A Life-Threatening Condition
Bloat, also called gastric dilatation-volvulus or gastric torsion, can affect any large breed dog and is a life-threatening condition.
Bloat is when the stomach becomes twisted, and the gases in the stomach are unable to escape. The pressure from these gases affects the blood flow to the heart, and it can be fatal.
- Avoid feeding your dog right before or after heavy exercise.
- Feed them a few smaller meals a day instead of one large meal to prevent bloat.
- Learn to recognize the symptoms of bloat so you can take action immediately.
Some owners choose to have surgery done to tack their dog’s stomach in place and prevent it from twisting.
First of all, what causes allergens?
Allergens are caused by dander, which is dead skin cells. Both animals and humans shed these skin cells. Dander is attached to the hair that dogs shed.
Newfoundlands are moderate to heavy shedders and droolers, so they are not considered an allergen-friendly breed. Bathing and brushing can help to keep allergens at a minimum.
Each puppy has a different set of genes (and allergens). Spending time with a puppy before you adopt is a great way to find out if their allergens trigger you.
If you or someone in your home has animal allergy concerns, please consult your health provider before adopting a puppy.
