Newfoundland dogs and Labrador Retrievers recognized

    Dogs are a big part of our cultural heritage

    Newfoundland dogs and Labrador Retrievers are being recognized as an essential part of our cultural heritage. Newfoundland dogs are considered  best for their water rescuing abilities and are used around the world. Originally, Newfoundland dogs and Labrador Retrievers hauled fishing nets to shore and then pulled the day’s catch to market by cart. The dog is a symbol of our province and the subject of many stories and legends based on loyalty. The Labrador Retriever is among the top breeds that work as service, rescue and therapy dogs. The breed can also smell health issues in humans. Known for being even tempered and gentle, they have long been the number one in breed registrations in Canada, the United States, United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand and Europe.
