Newfoundland Dogs can make good pets if they match your IifestyIe. The Newfoundland, or Newf, is a big dog with a bear-like appearance. Newfoundland dogs are remarkably sweet, gentle, and devoted. Newfs are absolutely wonderful with children. Newfoundlands need to be with their people. This intelligent breed is protective and intuitive. Newfoundlands have been known to rescue people from danger, especially from drowning. Newfoundlands can live in an apartment or in a home with a small yard. Newfs need to be protected from hot temperatures.
