Newfoundland Dog Story (Not totally true)

Truth: The actually picture

False: The tagline “this is a rare breed of Newfoundland, they were breed to hunt bears:

The breed of newfloundland dog in the photo is not rare and the newfloundland dog is simply a large breed of dog and it does not hunt bears.


The Newfoundland is a breed of large dog. Newfoundlands can be black, brown, gray, or black and white. They were originally bred and used as a working dog for fishermen in the Dominion of Newfoundland, now part of Canada.[1][2] They are known for their giant size, tremendous strength, calm dispositions, and loyalty. Newfoundland dogs excel at water rescue/lifesaving due to their muscular build, thick double coat, webbed feet, and innate swimming abilities.[3]
