Many breeds of dogs have come from generations of serving others and the Newfoundland is no exception to that innate desire. They not only thrive in a loving home, but their natural ability to save a human life or work to serve others creates pleasure that is impossible to ignore. As therapy dogs, they work in hospitals visiting the sick or comforting veterans or simply allowing a young child to nestle in their fur as they learn to read. They gain physical strength supporting their long term health, by learning water rescue techniques or pulling a draft cart but most of all, they live happier, more fulfilling lives by giving to others... it's simply their nature.
