Newfoundlands - About the breed

The standard as set by the Newfoundland Club of America and approved by the American Kennel Club, calls for a dog which impresses the eye with great strength dignity, and pride.  The Newf in motion gives the impression of effortless power.  Good proportion is important for smooth, strong drive.  The Newfoundland has a water-resistant double coat.  The outer coat is coarse, moderatly long and flat.  The undercoat is soft and dense.  While the Newf is found in a variety of colors, color is secondary to type, structure and soundness.  The recognized colors in the AKC approved Standard are black, brown, gray, and white and black (also known as Landseer)
