Working Newfoundlands

The Newfoundland is a working breed. While they excel at traditional activities such as water rescue and draft and carting, they also have adapted to fill many useful roles in modern society, from therapy dogs, to assistance dogs, to search and rescue. The Newfoundland is a versatile worker with a quick intelligence and strong desire to please.
