A brief presentation of the Newfypoo

A cross between the gentle, giant, larger-than-life Newfoundland and the versatile, good-natured Standard Poodle, the Newfypoo has a lot to offer. Charming, well-mannered and quick to learn, the Newfypoo is a valuable addition to most households. They do, however, need plenty of space, and owners need to make sure they can provide them with at least one hour of activity a day. The Newfypoo is a large breed dog with a handsome face and a thick, well-coated coat. They have a large head and an athletic body with a tail that curves gently at the end. Their eyes can be amber or brown, and they always portray a gentle, confident expression. With the potential to reach heights of over 60 cm, owners should be prepared for a puppy that will grow and grow.

History of the Newfypoo

Also known as the Newdle, Newfydoodle and Newfoundlandoodle, the Newfypoo is a relatively new hybrid on the scene that remains quite rare today. As is the case with most specific crossbreed dogs, little is known about when and where the Newfypoo originated. Most likely, the first Newfypoo was bred around the turn of the 21st century. With only a few decades of history under their belts, the Newfypoo's past doesn't have much to say, but we can certainly learn a lot from each of its parent breeds.
        

A little of the Newfoundland

        
The Newfoundland is a giant breed that originated in Newfoundland, Canada. Since the Newfoundland dog has been around for hundreds of years, experts don't know exactly when it was created. Some suggest that they may have been introduced to Canada by the Vikings a thousand years ago, although this theory is not widely accepted. What is known is that Newfoundland was present in Canada when it was first colonized in the 1600s. Used for its strength and good temperament, this breed was employed as a donkey dog to haul heavy carts and fishing nets. Over the years, it is likely that the original native dog was bred with several other breeds, such as the Portuguese Mastiff. Today, most Newfoundlands are kept as pets, although a small number are used for search and rescue work. They are recognized by both the UK Kennel Club and the AKC in their working groups.

A little of the Poodle

All types of Poodle mixes are becoming increasingly popular, and over the last five decades the Poodle has been incorporated into more designer dog breeds than any other pedigree. Their versatility has ensured their enormous success within the hybrid dog community, and they are appreciated for their good temperament and intelligent nature. Although the Poodle is the national dog of France and often associated with the French, it actually originated in Germany, where it was traditionally used to hunt waterfowl. Its curly coat would protect it from water, and its ability to think quickly made it an impressive worker. The original Poodle haircut was created out of necessity, with hunters trimming parts of the coat to allow greater freedom of movement in the water when swimming. A versatile companion and hunting variety, the Poodle has also been employed by the circus and as a truffle finder. Today, they are mainly kept as pets and show dogs.

Appearance of the Newfypoo

Most Newfypoos will be large dogs, some even reaching heights and weights that will classify them as giants. As a general rule, dogs will be more streamlined and slimmer than the Newfoundland Dog, inheriting the more elegant silhouette of the Poodle. Their skulls and muzzles are less broad than those of the Newfoundland, although they are still wider than the average dog. They have deep oval eyes that are relatively small compared to their large skulls. Their ears are large and pendulous, often densely furred. Their body is rectangular and they should have long, straight limbs. Their tails will reach their hocks, often curving at the top. When fully grown, the Newfypoo will weigh between 30 and 68 kg and reach an average height of 53 to 61 cm, with some of the breed's dogs being considerably taller. The Newfypoo's coat may be hypoallergenic, although this is never guaranteed and some dogs shed a small amount. Their coat is of medium length and generally has a shaggy, dense appearance, whether in waves or curls. A wide variety of coat colors are possible, including black, brown and cream. Although coat colors are uniform, many Newfypoos combine two colors, a black and white coat being popular at the moment.

Temperament of the Newfypoo

It's harder to predict a hybrid's temperament than a pedigree's, but many Newfypoos share similar personality traits. As a general rule, they are friendly and easy-going. Once well socialized, they'll want to mix with anyone and generally accept people of all ages, making them a good companion for older children. Young children need constant supervision in their presence, purely because of their size and strength. They will be fiercely loyal and protective of their families. Although they rarely show hostility to an intruder, their impressive size and deep voice are often enough to scare others away. Alert and highly intelligent, the Newfypoo loves to participate in family life and takes every opportunity to join in an activity or learn a new trick. They don't like to be left on their own for too long, and can get bored if not sufficiently stimulated.

Needs and activities of the Newfypoo

The Newfypoo is a rather active dog, even if not hyperactive, and generally needs about an hour of vigorous exercise a day to stay healthy and fit. It's important to remember that very large and giant breed dogs have particular exercise requirements, especially as they grow, and excessive jumping or maneuvering can be detrimental to the development of their bones and joints. While walks and jogging are always appreciated, these dogs can also enjoy alternative activities such as tracking or truffle hunting, and will certainly have a natural love of water sports, which is excellent exercise for increasing cardiovascular endurance and building muscle without stressing joints.

Maintenance of the Newfypoo

This crossbreed doesn't generally require frequent bathing, once every two to three months is usually enough to keep them looking and smelling clean. However, the Newfoundland's mantle is known to attract dirt and debris, and it may be necessary to trim or clip the Poodle's mantle frequently due to its continued growth. It is therefore necessary to brush and comb daily to avoid any risk of matting and to remove loose hairs or debris. Newfypoo's folded or hanging ears should also be checked regularly to ensure they are clean, dry and free from infection. These dogs are also prone to a condition known as bloat. The way they eat can therefore be an important part of their maintenance. Serving your dog several smaller meals a day rather than one or two larger ones is less likely to cause this life-threatening condition, and using specialized food bowls that force your dog to slow down when eating can help ensure proper digestion.
