As 'beatuftifulnewfies' said, your puppy is too young to have left it's mother. Puppies, especially giant breed dogs need to be with their mother's until they are at least 8 weeks old, if not 9,10,11, or even 12 weeks. They need this time to socialize with their litter-mates, mother and other dogs/animals to learn how to be dogs. Keep him indoors/in a secured area until he's had at least his 2 sets of shots, if not his 3rd as well. For your question, yes, he's too warm. He needs a cooler place for him to be if you want to cuddle him that much. Taking a damp towel and putting it in the freezer, then allowing him to lay on it will help him cool off easier. Being a Newfie, he wants your love and attention, but he is just too warm. Even at 72 degree's, he could over-heat and get ill. A kiddie pool in the shade outside, and ice cubes in his water dish will help him cool off.
