The breed may be a descendant of nomadic Indian dogs or of Viking "bear dogs."
This gentle giant was used for hauling in nets, carrying boat lines to shore, retrieving anything which fell overboard and rescuing shipwrecked and drowning victims.
The Newfoundland was, and still is, an outstanding instinctive water rescue dog; many owe their lives to members of the breed. In 1919 a gold medal was awarded to a Newfoundland that pulled to safety a lifeboat containing twenty shipwrecked people. It has been called the St. Bernard of the water.
