Newfoundland Description
  The Newfoundland is an elegant, harmonious, agile and hardy dog. It is stately, strong, and massive with a broad heavy head. The muzzle is wide and rather short and squared-off. Its pendant ears are small and triangular and its small eyes are dark brown. The conjunctiva should not show as it does in the St. bernard. Its nose is usually black except on the bronze-colored dogs, which have brown noses. The feet are webbed for better swimming. It has a long, water-repellent outer coat that is flat, oily and slightly wavy and a thick, oily undercoat.
