Popularity: Quite popular;

Trainability: Newfies have a few sides to them. They can be outgoing, intelligent and curious, but never skittish, timid or aggressive. With this type of character, you can conclude that this type of dog isn't too much trouble to train. Basic training includes housebreaking, obedience training, tricks and activities as well as training for water rescue and sports. When this dog is a puppy, be sure to socialize it very well around humans, children and animals. This will allow the puppy to grow into a well-adjusted and polite adult dog. These dogs are eager to please and fun to train. Be sure to always use positive reinforcement and never get mad at your Newfoundland. They're too affectionate and trusting for that type of behavior. Also, don't leave this dog alone. It needs lots of companionship;

Size/Weight: Large sized dogs, weighing in at an average of 100-150 pounds;

Origin Location/Date: They say that this dog is an ancestor of the Great Pyrenees and maybe the French Boarhound and was originally bred in Europe. It's not clear how the dog made its way to Canada, but it most likely hitched a ride with some fisherman. The breed became popular in Newfoundland, Canada and then made its way to the United States where is popularity continued to grow;

Energy Level: The Newfie isn't exactly energetic and has actually been described as a lazy breed. Being so, it's important to get your Newfoundland up and exercised daily. You wouldn't want it to become overweight or obese. Take your dog for daily walks and be sure to play with him in the back yard or park. If you can, bring this dog swimming. Newfs love to swim. Be sure to keep him out of the heat though. This breed has two thick coats of fun and can become overheated easily;

Temperament: The Newfoundland is an all around friendly dog. It's not a good watch dog or guard dog. It's great with families, adults, children and strangers. The only thing you'll need to be careful of is its size around young children. The dog may roll over and hurt someone. Other than that, it's super friendly and truly moves into any home it's placed in as a puppy. Just beware that once it moves in, it becomes attached to its surroundings. These dogs don't like change;

Necessary Space: Believe it or not, these dogs are quite popular in cities. Even though they're huge, they can adapt well to apartment living because of their lower exercise requirements. As long as you're happy and the Newfoundland is happy in your apartment, you shouldn't face any issues. Of course, living in a big home with a large fenced in back yard for exercise would be better, but still, apartment living is fine for these dogs;

Talents: The Newfie is a working dog that's well known for one thing; its sweet personality when it comes to being around kids. This dog has even been named the "Nanny Dog" because it's so good with children;

Life Expectancy: 9-10 years;

Group: Working Group;

A few terms and phrases to describe the typical Newfoundland puppy and dog: outgoing, intelligent, curious, eager to please, affectionate, trusting, fun, huge, companionable, needs companionship, great search and rescue dog, friendly, good with families, good with kids, and somewhat lazy and low energy.
