8 to 10 yrs is normal, but Newfs can live to be as old as 14. Keep them at a healthy weight, feed them a premium food for large breeds, see your vet often, keep up with the monthly flea,tick and heartworm meds, give them plenty of exercise and most of all all your love!!

The average live span of a Newfoundland dog is anywhere between 6-10 years. But some can live as long as 14-15 years. The life-span of a dog has many variables, such as; linage, how much the puppy/dog is exercised as a puppy/dog, weight and diet. To get the most things on your side, get a Newfoundland from a responsible and reputable breeder that does all health checks, feed your Newfie a high-quality grain-free dog food, keep your Newfie lean, do not over-exercise your dog; do as much low-stress exercise as possible, ie: swimming. As well as get your dog yearly or even bi-yearly check ups at a vet and do all necessary vaccinations for your area.
