Overview
The Newfoundland is commonly referred to as the "Newfie". Their exact origin is unknown. However, these "gentle giants" are highly revered for their outstanding ability as a water rescuer. Due to their massive size and strength they are also well known for their hauling and retrieving capabilities.
Character
The Newfoundland is a sweet, elegant, and courageous breed. They are the embodiment of dignity and carry themselves in a stately and noble manner. The Newfoundland is a deeply devoted and extremely delightful companion. They are considered to be one of the friendliest breeds.

Does your Newfoundland bark, howl, and cry whenever you leave the house? Separation anxiety is extreme anxiety experienced by your dog when you are away from him.
Temperament
The Newfoundland is generous with love and affection. They are very sociable and friendly to visitors they know. They have a keen sense of responsibility and are excellent with children. They become so attached to their families that they cannot ever adapt to a new home or environment. They are generally good with other pets. This breed thrives on human companionship. They are gentle, heroic, and docile. Newfoundlands are extremely protective and will place themselves between their family and any danger that appears to be of a threatening nature.
Care
The Newfoundland requires daily brushing. The under coat is shed in the spring and fall and should be given extra attention at these times. Bathing should only be done when absolutely necessary to prevent stripping the coat of its' natural oils. Dry shampooing is best. They are prone to hip dysplasia, weight gain, and heart disease.

If your dog is displaying behavior uncharacteristic of his normal actions, call the Vet.
Coat
The Newfoundland has a water resistant double coat. The outer coat is coarse, flat, oily, and of medium length. The under coat is dense and soft in texture. The coat color is typically black, but may also be black with blue highlights, bronze, brown, or gray. The Newfoundland's coat serves as protection against frigid water and extremely cold climates. They are heavy shedders.
Training
Newfoundlands may be slightly difficult to train. They are extremely sensitive and will not respond to harsh or heavy-handed direction. They require and respond best to a calm, patient, and loving tone of voice. The Newfie does well with early basic obedience and socialization. They may be trained as a guard or work dog. Teaching your dog to sit, lie down, and stay is vital to the training of your new puppy. There are several accepted methods of house training your new Newfoundland puppy. Consider crate training if you need to adapt your dog to a safe and confined environment for various safety and comfort reasons.
Activity
The Newfoundland is slow moving and has a tendency to be lazy. They enjoy and benefit from play sessions, daily walks, and swimming. They are relatively inactive indoors. The Newfie will do okay in an apartment or condominium dwelling provided they are given sufficient exercise. They enjoy a run in a small fenced yard. Socialization is one of the single most important things you can do for your puppy.

What is a Newfoundland's life expectancy?

The average lifespan of the Newfoundland breed all depends on where they come from. But 10 years is the average. Some live as short as 6 - 8, while I've known and owned others that have lived to 12 - 14.

Do Newfoundlands like to ride in vehicles?

Newfoundland dogs love car rides, they love to stick their big, slobbery heads out the window and goob up the windshield behind them. All of my Newfoundlands can't wait to get into the back of my truck when I say we're going for a ride.

Would a Newfoundland do okay if they lived in one home then went to college with their person?

Now, either you're saying that the dog would go from one home to another home in which the owner would now be going to college; or that you can take the dog with you to your classes. Either way, the Newfoundland breed is a very loyal, sensitive and loving dog. They love to be with their owners/family and enjoy spending time with them. If you are a college student and go to regular classes, your Newfie should be exercised before and after you go to college. Half an hour before and half an hour after. A well trained, balanced and well socialized Newfie should do just fine waiting at home until their owner gets back, but you should always make sure your dog has something to do, ie: a bone to chew on, a puzzle toy to work through. Or take your dog to Doggy Day Care for the day so you know that your Newf will be tired at the end of the day and just want to cuddle with you when you get home.

I want to get a Newfoundland and I've found a breeder who does all the OFA testing, which is great, but I have 1 major concern regarding their breeding. If they bred a father with a daughter, that has to be considered inbreeding, does it not? I've read about line breeding but, this seems too genetically close for my comfort. Thoughts?

Inbreeding is a very tricky subject and I understand your concern. Back when breeds were being made, inbreeding was necessary to be able to create and keep the standard of the breed until there were enough dogs around that created their own gene pools. However, nowadays, inbreeding is not needed but some breeders continue to practice it within their own lines. I am a Newfoundland breeder myself and since I would not be comfortable having babies with my own father, I do not practice inbreeding in my lines.

If I need to work on a specific trait, I will go and look for a stud or dam that possesses those traits and import him/her into my lines. It is up to you if you are comfortable purchasing a dog from this breeder. In a whole, the puppies should be fine if there is no other inbreeding in the lines of the dam and sire. That is where I would start first, to make sure there is no other inbreeding. If there is, that is a huge red-flag for me and I would walk and find a different reputable, responsible and knowledgeable Newfoundland breeder.

If I was sure of what is back in my lines I might. You must know the health in your lines very well. This has been done by several show kennels but you must know the lineage.

Are the Newfoundland males larger than the females? Which would have a better disposition? Why are the prices of the puppies so different?

Typically, the male Newfoundland will be larger, but it all depends on the pedigree of the puppy as some lines run larger than others. A well-bred puppy, from temperament tested parents, should have a great disposition, male or female. However, I have noticed with my lines of Newfoundlands that my males are more laid back and my females are more rambunctious. But again, that is for my lines only. As for price, a breeder will choose the price of his/her puppies based on the area they are in, the pedigree of the puppies and how much that litter cost to produce. The main thing for you is to find a reputable, responsible and knowledgeable breeder that you trust.
