As an owner of a 5yr old neutered male newfie, a 3yr old spayed female newfie, and most recently a 7 months old neutered male rescue newfie from a wonderful giant breed rescue - my best advice to you would be to check out the Newfoundland Club of America website for GREAT info on newfie and newfie puppies! THere is likely also a newfoundland club for your region. These clubs are terrific resources for all your questions. And yes - adult, high quality dog food even for the puppy that has the right proportions of nutrients is very important for their growing years. Also - a 7 week old puppy should stay just a couple more weeks with their mother if possible. This early time with mom really helps teach puppy socialization skills like bit inhibition (how not to bite hard) and also how not to play too rough with it's siblings among other things. All important things when your puppy is almost 80 pounds at 6 months old! Good luck!!
