Newfoundland Dogs are one of the 10 largest dog breeds in the world but they are called 'Gentle Giants' because they have very sweet and loving personalities.
Newfoundland dogs are amazing swimmers. There have saved more lives than you could count. They are very brave and super strong swimmers.
Newfoundland dogs have webbed feet and they don't swim dog paddle like other dogs. They swim a very strong breast stroke which means their legs push out through the water to their sides. They are so strong they can actually pull a boat!
Newfoundland dogs make greath therapy dogs. That means they train to be able to go into hospitals and meet with people who aren't feeling well, to make them feel better.
Some Newfoundland like to learn draft work, which means they learn how to pull a cart. Sometimes they pull a cart by themselves and sometimes they like to work in teams, pulling carts with another Newfoundland friend of theirs! Doesn't that sound like fun?
Yes, Newfoundland can be water rescue dogs and they can save people. They can be therapy dogs and go into hospitals to make people feel better and they can pull carts in parades. But, what the Newfie does best is love his family! They love to cuddle and most of all, they love to play with their family and friends!
