Best known for their enormous size and thick coats, Newfoundlanders are a rare and unique breed of dogs.
They are famously known for their affectionate nature and gentleness. These dogs have an innate instinct to help and protect their people, which is why they are considered the perfect pets in a house with kids or even service dogs. These wonderful dogs get along the most with children, however, sometimes they might not realize their huge size and may try to fit in everywhere. Moreover, these dogs may require some training to learn basic etiquette while living with people. Their approximate weight can range up to 150 pounds and size up to 27-30 inches tall. These dogs are from the Canadian island of Newfoundland – hence their name. These dogs were first used by fishermen for their assistance as they had webbed feet, knew how to swim naturally, and could save a man from drowning as well.
Their loving nature and extreme loyalty are what makes them the ideal family dogs that they are known for today, as you will see below. This article will give you an account of different people who have shared pictures of their Newfoundlander dogs and how is it like living with them. You will be utterly amused to see these pictures below and we’re sure you will have a great time reading this article. Sometimes they might even scar you for a second as they resemble bears a lot, but this is also a part of an adventure – which is, having a Newfoundlander pet. You may train them as you want and won’t have to feel scared when they’re around kids because they bond the most with them.

Newfoundlanders are gigantic dogs and have a massive lung capacity which helps them play for a long time and they do not get tired easily. Other than that, these dogs also drool profusely which aids them in keeping cool despite their double layers of coat.
Before you plan on adopting a Newfoundlander, keep in mind that these dogs consume a lot of food considering their huge size. The puppies grow the most in their first year and again almost 100 pounds!
