Newfoundlands are strong, large breed dogs weighing from 100 to 150 pounds and are able to do draft work and have lifesaving instincts in the water. The breed originated in Newfoundland after fishermen bought the breed’s ancestors — possibly the Great Pyrenees or a French hound — to the Canadian region from Europe.
This button is part of a larger set of 35 buttons, each with an illustration of a different dog breed. They were originally sold on a 6” x 9” cardboard sheet.
