Newfoundland dog lovers

The Newfoundland is a large, strong dog from Newfoundland. He was originally used as a working dog to pull nets for fishermen and haul wood from the forest. He is a capable and hardworking dog, well suited to work on land or water. He is a strong swimmer and equally strong "pack horse." Sweet-natured and responsive, he makes a wonderful family companion as well.
Newfoundlands make great family dogs, especially for families with children. If the family likes to swim or lives near water then the Newfoundland will be in heaven. They make good watchdogs and are affectionate and loyal toward their families.
