Did you know? The Newfoundland dog is known for its water rescue abilities because of their muscular build, webbed feet, and swimming abilities.
The Newfoundland traces back to the old Great Pyrenees dogs of the 17th century, though wasn’t recognized as a breed until nearly 100 years later.
The Newfoundland dogs make great family pets with room to roam in colder climates. However, the breed does not tolerate heat well, so warmer climates are out of the question. Despite its massive size, one glance at a Newfie’s gentle expression and immediately it’s known this dog is of a sweet temperament.
We say, hey, to the sweetest Newfoundland dogs of Instagram.
