This print of the Newfie combines fun facts and breed traits of the Newfoundland dog drawn in a cartoon-like manner inside the picture. the Original picture is hand made with ink on paper and prints are just like the original with plenty of "gentle giant" facts.
Here are the details explained that you can find inside the print :
A dog from Canada
In Canada, the country of their origin, the only correct colors is black (including black with white markings) and white and black (Landseer).
They were originally bred and used as a working dog for fishermen in the Dominion of Newfoundland.
A Working Dog
Both breeds were used as working dogs to pull fish nets, with the Greater Newfoundland also being used to haul carts and other equipment. (Newfie pulling a massive wood log)
Water proof Dog
A Water Rescue Dog
An unnamed Newfoundland is credited for saving Napoleon Bonaparte in 1815.
During his famous escape from exile on the island of Elba, rough seas knocked Napoleon overboard, then a fisherman's dog jumped into the sea, and kept Napoleon afloat until he could reach safety.
Grooming a Teddy Bear
To keep the Newfoundland's thick coat looking great, he needs regular grooming.
You can do it yourself, which is time consuming, or you can hire a professional groomer, which can be expensive.
Most important : dog needs to be trained to be groomed : stand on and not bite the brush
How the Newfoundland operate a rescue operation : the dog retrieved a rope thrown out into the turbulent waters by those on-board, and brought the rope to shore to people willing to help.
