A strong, multipurpose working dog, the Newfoundland is big in size yet sweet in temperament. This noble breed is a master swimmer with natural lifesaving instincts, and his thick, plush coat protects him from frigid waters. Intelligent and friendly, the Newfoundland is easy to train and is a great fit for families with children. He requires daily exercise, and his coat needs to be brushed regularly.
