Colors and patterns in the Newfie world can be tricky to get the hang of at first! We'd like to help others get familiar with the beautiful colors and patterns produced in the Newfoundland.
"Irish spotted" Newfoundlands are a solid color with white markings on the chest, paws, and oftentimes face and tip of tail. This partially comes from the Newfoundland's historic predecessor, the Saint John's Water Dog. Their coat is usually sleek and easily managed!
Last but not least. Beige, which is brown "diluted", is a rare and stunning color for a Newfie! Our first ones were born from Rosie and Tommy in April 2019.
