Newfoundland Dog Breed

Newfoundland Dogs

There is much uncertainty about the origin of the Newfoundland. Some say his ancestors are the white Great Pyrenees, dogs brought to the coast of Newfoundland by the Basque fishermen; others that he descended from a " French hound " (probably the Boarhound); but all agree that he originated in Newfoundland and that his ancestors were undoubtedly brought there by fishermen from the European Continent. Many old prints of Newfoundlands show apparent evidence of a Husky ancestor.
