Newfoundland: the Saint-Bernard of the sea
The Newfoundland - also called the Newfoundland retriever - is a dog breed originally from Canada, more specifically the Dominion of Newfoundland. They are used as search and rescue dogs and as such they have been nicknamed the Saint-Bernard of the sea.
Newfoundlands come from a cross-breed between large hunting dogs and dogs indigenous to the Dominion of Newfoundland. In trying to improve the breed, the Newfoundland was cross-bred with other breeds. Their physical characteristics were finally settled in the early 19th century. There were used at the time to pull up dead tree trunks. However, Newfoundlands were often used on the fishing boats where the fishers asked them to not only pull on board the fishing nets but also to save people who fell into the sea.
Newfoundlands are sea search and rescue dogs by nature. In addition to their webbed feet, they are equipped with a thick water-resistant coat with a soft and dense under-coat which protects them from icy waters. The Newfoundland is the only dog breed that can swim for hours and stay dry and warm. What''s more, they make excellent companions. They are very obedient and affectionate to their master. Even though they aren''t destructive dogs, Newfoundlands need strict training as this giant dog can become uncontrollable.
