As part of the working group, the Newfoundland is a large and muscular breed that originated in Canada. They have a thick coat of hair that comes in two recognized colors – black and Landseer. The Newfoundland is exceptionally obedient, often competing in contests that involve agility and tracking. In addition, the Newfoundland is very well suited for water, as its thick coat helps to protect it against frigid temperatures.
