Black, brown, gray, or Landseer (black head with black markings on a white ground).
Flat, dense, and coarse textured double coat; oily and water resistant. Outer coat moderately long, straight or slightly wavy. Daily to weekly brushing of the thick, coarse, double coat with a hard brush is important. The undercoat is shed twice a year in the spring and fall and extra care is required at these times. Avoid bathing unless absolutely necessary, as this strips away the coat's natural oils, instead, dry shampoo from time to time.
Prone to hip dysplasia, hereditary heart disease called sub-aortic stenosis (SAS). Don't let a Newfoundland get fat. To minimize the risk of your Newfoundland developing any hereditary health issues, you should buy a dog from a reputable Newfoundland breeder.
