Newfoundland

 The Newfoundland breed is known as a large working dog but they are the sweetest and gentle giants. They can weigh up to 150 lbs for males and 120 lbs for females. They come in three main colors black, brown and black-white also known as Landseer color. This breed is very unique in how it’s built. They have a double coat used to keep it afloat when swimming and have webbed feet like a duck which makes them a very strong swimmer. Due to their float ability, they are used as lifeguards in the ocean and can even carry a drowning adult to safety. These dogs are very family friendly and love children. Although they are sweet and cute, they do shed and slobber a lot, which does make a mess but it’s easy to clean up. Newfoundlands are one of the sweetest and most caring breeds of dogs.
