Newfoundland The Newfoundland breed is a breed of lovable giants. These shaggy beasts usually tower over other breeds of dog. Like most giant dog breeds, the Newfoundland dog breed is known for a gentle temperament. Nana in the original stage version of Peter Pan was a Newfie. Yet though they are as caring as nannies, they aren't always as proper: one of the best-known characteristics of Newfoundlands is their tendency to drool or slobber. The Newfoundland's Behavior Source: Wikipedia. Recommended for: pet, working dog The Newfoundland dog breed has one trait that is perhaps known better than any other: drooling or slobbering. Most Newfie fans find the habit endearing. In general, the dogs are loving and lovable. In the words of the American Kennel Club's breed description, "sweetness of temperament is the hallmark of the Newfoundland." Newfoundlands are widely considered protective toward children. Nana in the original stage version of Peter Pan was a Newfie. Remember that breed only provides a general clue as to any individual dog's actual behavior.
