I adore these dogs and think I might like to get a Newfie one of these days. What is your dog like?
What are the pro's and con's of this breed?
Thanks a bunch!

I am a vet tech and have taken care of this breed. They are gentle giants and are very good with children. They do have some health concerns. they can suffer from agoraphobia and be fearful of things like grooming and the vet. They also do not live very long. Most giants live 8-10 years. They do love water and will rescue people if they need it or not. They require regular grooming and are expensive to feed. A good newfie can be over $1000 to buy. I always tell owners to attend breed dog shows and talk to breeders and handlers. Find out about the breed before you buy. Less chance they end up in a shelter or rescue. Best of luck in your search.
