Official Standard of the Newfoundland Puppy Breed in Pennsylvania
General Appearance: The Newfoundland puppy is a sweet-dispositioned dog that acts neither dull nor
ill-tempered. He is a devoted companion. A multipurpose dog, at home on land and in water, the
Newfoundland is capable of draft work and possesses natural lifesaving abilities.
The Newfoundland is a large, heavily coated, well-balanced dog that is deep-bodied, heavily
boned, muscular, and strong. A good specimen of the breed has dignity and proud head carriage.
The following description is that of the ideal Newfoundland puppy. Any deviation from this ideal is to
be penalized to the extent of the deviation. Structural and movement faults common to all
working dogs are as undesirable in the Newfoundland as in any other breed, even though they
are not specifically mentioned herein.
Size, Proportion, Substance: Average height for adult dogs is 28 inches, for adult bitches 26
inches. Approximate weight of adult dogs range from 130 to 150 pounds, adult bitches from 100
to 120 pounds. The dog’s appearance is more massive throughout than the bitch’s. Large size is
desirable, but never at the expense of balance, structure, and correct gait. The Newfoundland is
slightly longer than tall when measured from the point of shoulder to point of buttocks and from
withers to ground. He is a dog of considerable substance which is determined by spring of rib,
strong muscle, and heavy bone.
Head: The head is massive, with a broad skull, slightly arched crown, and strongly developed
occipital bone. Cheeks are well developed. Eyes are dark brown. (Browns and Grays may have
lighter eyes and should be penalized only to the extent that color affects expression.) They are
relatively small, deep-set, and spaced wide apart. Eyelids fit closely with no inversion. Ears are
relatively small and triangular with rounded tips. They are set on the skull level with, or slightly
above, the brow and lie close to the head. When the ear is brought forward, it reaches to the inner
corner of the eye on the same side. Expression is soft and reflects the characteristics of the
breed: benevolence, intelligence, and dignity. Forehead and face are smooth and free of wrinkles.
Slope of the stop is moderate but, because of the well-developed brow, it may appear abrupt in
profile. The muzzle is clean-cut, broad throughout its length, and deep. Depth and length are
approximately equal, the length from tip of nose to stop being less than that from stop to occiput.
The top of the muzzle is rounded, and the bridge, in profile, is straight or only slightly arched.
Teeth meet in a scissors or level bite. Dropped lower incisors, in an otherwise normal bite, are
not indicative of a skeletal malocclusion and should be considered only a minor deviation.
