About the Landseer

Landseers are large, robust dogs of good proportions. The legs are higher than those of their cousins, Black Newfoundlands.

Naturally protective, the Landseer has been known to act as babysitter to family children without hesitation, and will defend their family from any threat. As such, they are also fantastic guard dogs.
