Newfoundlands are the gentle giants of the dog world. They are sweet and loving, and make the best babysitters due to their gentle and caring nature. Do not be fooled, though! They are also very silly and love to play, especially when they are young. If you have ever heard the phrase "goofy newfy" it suits them very well.
Cash, our Newfoundland that started it all
While Cash is not our foundation male, he is the one that sparked our love (possibly obsession) for the Newfoundland breed. We adopted him when he was 2 years old from a couple that were looking to rehome him. We adopted him and his Saint Bernard brother in a heartbeat. He is such an easygoing, gentle boy. Cash also is immensely strong and occasionally underestimates his own strength. As he got older we were looking for another puppy to soften the blow for when he passed, but could not find quite what we were looking for. We decided that it should be easier to find a good quality Newfoundland in our area and began the research and dedication it takes to become an expert.
