History

The Norrbottenspets (Spitz from the North Bothnia country) probably originates from the small spitz-type Laika that was known to live with hunters in the North Cape area, already in prehistoric times. Little hunting spitz have survived for thousands of years through natural selection - survival of the fittest. In the very harsh and difficult areas of the northern part of the Scandinavian Peninsula, hunting for food and skins was a necessity in order to survive. Precious skins like saber, Sable fur and ermine were the only valid currency for centuries. When fur prices fell drastically after WWII, so did the interest in him Norrbottenspets.

The breed disappeared and there were no records for many years, hence the Kennel Club of Sweden (SKK) declared it extinct. But only a decade later news came that true-type specimens had been found living as pets and watchdogs in small inland homes in North Bothnia.. Due to the very dedicated work of a few men, this ancient hunting spitz was saved.
In 1967 the Norrbottenspets was introduced to the Registries and a new standard was drawn up.

    Content

    The Newfoundland was born on the east coast of Canada. The great island of Newfoundland, which is in front of Canada, gave him his name. The fact that it descends from the dogs of the Vikings of pre-Columbian times or from the dogs of the Indians is a legend that has not been proven until now.. Its relationship with the molossi can be seen but also proved in the genetic map of the Heidi G dog breeds. Parker.

    Probably the ancestors of the Newfoundlands came with the first settlers as molossi from Europe. He proved to be an assistant to seal fishers and hunters and was occasionally helpful when hunting bears and big game on land. Carried loads and served as a sled dog with dead game. Working with fishermen in the rough North Atlantic was extremely demanding. The Newfoundland had to think, had to do heavy work on the networks. The Newfoundland saved the lives of the castaways over and over again. In this way he developed the peculiarities of his character and physique that allowed him to face the harsh weather conditions on land and the dangers of the sea as a water dog and rescue.

    With the cod ships he came to England over and over again as early as the 18th century. Here he became famous from the start due to his impressive achievements. Was not up 1886 that the Club of Newfoundland in England, and soon after, in 1893, The club of Newfoundland for the Continent, now called the “German Club of Newfoundland“. Even today, Newfoundland keep working as a water rescue dog.

    Did You Know?

    A Newfoundland named Rigel sank with the Titanic and swam alongside a lifeboat for three hours in the icy water, apparently looking for its owner, that had sunk with the ship. People in the lifeboat were almost run over by the steamship Carpathia because the crew could not hear their faint screams, but Rigel's bark was noticed and the people and the dog were saved.

    Physical characteristics

    The Newfoundland is a big dog. According to the standard, adult males must weigh an average of 68 kg and females 54 kg. It is a very strong dog, very muscular and with long dense hair. Her coat is water repellent. It has a strong and soft undercoat, which makes it seem even more bulky. This shouldn't tempt you to raise him like a teddy bear. Because the real Newfoundland combines enormous power with agility, sportiness and impressive skills in the water. Its exterior does not deceive its interior. Master the challenges with committed calm. The hair on your head, muzzle and ears is short and thin. The front and rear legs are covered in fur. The tail is completely covered in long thick hair. The black, brown and black and white are allowed as coat colors.

    Character and skills

    Even the mere appearance of Newfoundland has a relaxing and calming effect, at least for people who are not usually afraid of dogs. The Newfoundland radiates majestic serenity. Its character is as stable as it appears on the outside. It has a friendly and kind nature. But that must not be misleading: He knows very well how to distinguish between friend and enemy, which can be unequivocally underlined by his calm but more determined appearance. If required, defends his family with all his might without hesitation. Barking is not necessary for it to be heard.

    He is extremely friendly with his friends. The Newfoundland he is very close to his family and loves children more than anything. He wants education and he absolutely needs it. Because like a powerful big dog it is always stronger than the other end of the leash.. Sometimes he has a hard head, but after a friendly request from his master or caretaker he does everything, as long as it's well connected. The Newfoundland impresses by the unity of two apparently irreconcilable poles: on the one hand it radiates calm and tranquility, on the other hand it can save people from drowning in a short time in the most difficult conditions. Usually, the Newfoundlands are real water rats. They are excellent swimmers, which they are happy to proudly demonstrate.

    The Newfoundland not a dog for the city or a flat. He likes long walks, but water is the best for him. Due to its strength and the high technical demands of its maintenance, not suitable for beginners, although it can be trained and managed well. It is a great family dog. But he also likes to sleep outside, even with wind and rain. What you don't need is running or doing activities in the heat.

    The Newfoundland It is a natural lifeguard and can be a good helper for parents who have a pool or enjoy taking children to the lake or ocean, although you should never be solely responsible for your safety.

    Newfoundland Education

    The Newfoundland can be educated very well. It is intelligent, interested and quickly understand what you are allowed to do and what you are not. Sometimes it's a little slow, but a little motivated, he is very cooperative and strives to make his master and lady happy. The puppy should already show itself clearly and without exception where the hammer hangs. There should be no doubt about the orientation of your humans, as well as about the intimate relationship and respect for him.

    Always keep in mind that this dog is physically the strongest and that leadership only works through unquestioning recognition of the role of human leadership.. With praise and results, basically you can achieve everything with it. On the basis of a good education you can train him very well Newfoundland. Many terranovas they are used successfully as guide dogs for the blind and especially as rescue dogs in the water, but also on land. For this you can do work tests with water in the clubs.

    Caring for a Newfoundland

    Maintain and care for the Newfoundland it is very expensive. The dense and weather resistant coat should be brushed every day with a special brush. Should not be sheared or trimmed. Due to its constitution and dense coat, do not tolerate heat well.

    Nutrition / Food

    Like all large dogs, Newfoundland need a lot of food. Especially in the growth phase you need professional nutritional planning.

    Newfoundland life expectancy

    Life expectancy is between 8 and 12 years. That depends a lot on the upbringing. Thin and light dogs tend to age more than heavy, plump dogs.

    Newfoundland Health

    How could it be predicted, given its large size, the Newfoundland can suffer a series of joint and structural problems. It is important that young and growing dogs are kept lean and are not allowed to exercise too hard or eat too much, since this will cause injuries and problems that can be paralyzing in the future. In fact, all the Newfoundland they need to stay slim, since obesity increases the chances of them developing structural problems and makes them more painful when they occur.

    One such structural problem is genetic hip deformation known as hip dysplasia.. The head of the femur does not fit well into the hip socket; with the time, the joint cartilage wears out and the underlying bone is damaged. Serious arthritis occurs that usually affects very young dogs. In some cases, expensive surgery is required, including total hip replacement surgery. If not treated, the dog will suffer pain and a poor quality of life. Elbow dysplasia is another inherited joint problem, resulting from abnormal elbow formation.

    The possibility that a Newfoundland develop dysplasia of the hip or elbow just because the parents are free of the disease, although it reduces the possibilities. And while a puppy's bones keep growing, sometimes it can be difficult to confirm a diagnosis, depending on the tests performed and the severity of the condition.

    To each Newfoundland X-rays should be taken of your dog's hips and elbows at two years of age, regardless of whether or not it shows symptoms of lameness or stiffness. For dogs that show lameness before that age (namely, during the puppy stage), diagnostic tests should be performed promptly.

    The Newfoundlands are at risk of heart disease, including dilated cardiomyopathy and subaortic stenosis (SAS). There is currently no genetic test for SAS, who has a complex inheritance, making it difficult to develop a test. Breeders must not breed Newfoundland with no SAS sign and puppies should be examined by a certified veterinary cardiologist.

    Cystinuria is a genetic kidney defect that leads to the formation of stones in the bladder that are very difficult to manage with diet or medication, and which often requires surgery both to remove the stones from the bladder and to repair urinary obstructions.. There may be no early signs that the dog is forming cystine stones, which can create a life-threatening emergency if they cause an obstruction. Fortunately, there is a genetic test for cystinuria. Given the availability of the genetic test, no need for a breeder to produce a dog with the disorder

    Not all of these conditions are detectable on a growing puppy, and it can be difficult to predict whether an animal will be free from these diseases, so a reputable breeder must be found who is committed to raising the healthiest animals possible. Must be able to produce an independent certification that the parents of the dog (and grandparents, etc.) They have been examined to detect these defects and considered healthy for breeding. That's where they enter medical records.

    Not all visits by Newfoundland to the vet they are due to a genetic problem. It is known that the Newfoundland experience cruciate ligament rupture. They are also among the deep-breasted breeds predisposed to bloating., a condition in which the stomach dilates with gas and can twist on itself (called gastric torsion), cutting off blood flow. Swelling and torsion appear very suddenly, and a dog that was fine a minute can die a few hours later. Watch for symptoms like restlessness and rhythm, la baba, the paleness of the gums, lip licking, unsuccessful attempt to vomit and signs of pain. Swelling requires immediate veterinary intervention, and surgery is necessary in many cases. Unfortunately, dogs that have swollen can do it again, so most vets offer a procedure known as gastropexy or “turn of the stomach”, which anchors the stomach to the body wall to help prevent future twisting. This procedure can also be done as a preventive measure.

    Buy a Newfoundland

    You should only purchase a puppy locally from a breeder who is affiliated with the FCI. It should come from a baby, where dogs are rather sporty, thin and not too fat and “beary”. A puppy in the kennel is usually sold at a price between 1500 and 2000 EUR.

While the Norfolk Terrier has slanted ears, the Norwich Terrier has standing ears. In the past these dogs were raised together and it was always a surprise that puppies had ears. Because the judges at the shows at least felt they preferred the dogs with droopy ears, they wanted to have their ears drooping or leaning in a class of their own. However, either standing or with ears hanging, they are wonderful terriers, vivacious little ones you can enjoy. They come from the Middle East of England. There these little terriers served the people for many years as watchdogs and hunters at home and at court..
