The Newfoundland originated in the Dominion of Newfoundland, now part of
Canada. They were bred as working dogs, hauling carts, pulling in
fisherman?s nets and any other heavy work around the farm. They have a
heavy double coat and also double webbed paws. Their coat can be black,
brown, gray or black and white, which is known in the USA as Landseer.
Unlike other breeds, however, the coat color comes second to type,
structure and soundness. The Newfoundland?s average height is 26 to 28
inches at the withers with a weight of 100 to 150 pounds. These dogs truly
are gentle giants; they are loving, loyal and their life-saving instincts
make them the perfect water rescue dog and companion dog for child or
adult. Over the years there have been many famous Newfoundlands; Brumus who
was Robert F. Kennedy?s Newfie, Carlo belonged to Emily Dickinson, Hector
was owned by President Rutherford B. Hayes and then there?s Rigel who was
the beloved pet of first officer William Murdoch aboard the Titanic.
Murdoch went down with the ship but Rigel swam for three hours next to a
lifeboat until it was rescued. The AKC recognized this breed in the Working
Group in 1886.
