Newfoundlands are a wonderful breed of dog, but they are definitely not for everyone.
Newfoundlands are large (100-140 lbs!) black hairy dogs who shed and drool all over your
clothing and your house. You can visit the AKC standard of the Newfoundland here: AKC
Newfoundland Standard. The standard is the blueprint designed by the Newfoundland Club of
America to describe exactly what a Newfoundland dog should be like. You can also find a great
deal of information about Newfs on the Newfoundland Club of America website which can be
found here: NCA Website.
If you live in the Northeast, please visit the Newfoundland Club of New England's web page
here: NCNE Website. There is a calendar listing of all of the upcoming New England Newf
events which is very helpful for meeting Newfs and their owners.
