A Name Rooted in History
This gentle, loyal breed with an eagerness to please is a trusted companion to countless families. The "Newfie" is a big dog that needs room to roam and plenty of attention, but the rewards of calling such a loyal breed part of your family are immeasurable.
While the breed is generally healthy, one should obtain a complete family history at the time of adoption. The family history needs to be reviewed by your veterinarian when your pet has his first physical examination.
