Landseer Newfoundland Dog Breed
 

Landseer Newfoundlands

The Newfoundland Dog was named for the artist whose drawings brought fame to the black and white parti-color Newfoundland. This breed owes much to the realism of Sir Edwin Landseer's canvasses. Like the Newfoundland (that they are), the Landseer was bred to aide the fisherman on the shores of the island of Newfoundland. The dog's ancestor is the Greater St. John's Dog. This dog was the larger of the two
types of St. John's Dogs that were the first stage of the breed. The dogs are natural rescue dogs and are greatly drawn to the water.

The Landseer is a strong, faithful and beautiful dog.
They need as much time in the water as you can allow.
