Facts about Newfy

  • Breed: Newfoundland
  • Color: Black
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: X-Large 101 lbs (46 kg) or more
  • Sex: Male
The Newfoundland’s thick hair coat is medium to long and should be coarse. The undercoat is very soft. They will shed their coats in the fall and again, very heavily, in the spring.

Regular grooming is a must or the coat will get out of control very quickly.

Newfoundlands also drool. There will be drool on the floor, the furniture, the ceiling and every occupant of a household that has a Newf. These are not dogs for neat people.

The average lifespan of a Newf is 8 to 10 years but many Newfs are living to 12 and beyond because of improved genetics and nutrition. They can have many health problems including hip dysplasia, heart abnormalities, allergies and cancer. However, good breeding and screening practices of both adults and puppies help to reduce to incidence of these problems. Hence the recommendation to avoid pet shops and so-called backyard breeders. Veterinary costs are often increased due to their large size. Heartworm medication, anesthesia and antibiotic costs are all dependent on the size of the dog.

About Newf Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Newf Rescue was conceived and created for the purpose of providing and supporting a broad-scale exchange of ideas and suggestions to benefit those groups and individuals dedicated to Newfoundland rescue.
The mission of the rescue association is the dedication for the preservation and advancement of the Newfoundland Dog by rescuing those unfortunate Newfoundlands that may end up abused, abandoned or neglected.
A Newfy should not be acquired casually or disposed of lightly but sometimes an owner's circumstances change and the Newf is unable to remain with its original owner. It is on these occasions that we will find a new, suitable, permanent home where the Newfoundland will be loved, cared for, and respected for its unique qualities.
Any pure breed Newfoundland that is legally turned over to us is immediately taken to one of our participating veterinarians for a complete health check, vaccinations, if needed, and is spayed/neutered. The Newf is then placed into one of our foster homes for an undetermined length of time (depending on the Newf’s condition) for a complete evaluation of the Newf’s retraining, rehabilitation and restoring of health. The Newf will be kept in foster care as long as necessary to prepare it for entry into its new and permanent home.

Our Adoption Process...

Before any adoption is ever made, a site visit is made to the potential adoptee's home to determine if they and their home environment would be suitable for a Newfoundland. All potential adoptee's must have the proper pet supplies to keep their Newfy happy and safe.
