Bear - Our First Newf Bear - Our First Newf My sweet devoted Bear This is one of the last pictures taken of Bear before we lost him at almost 17 years old in July of 2004. He was never bred, being solely a companion dog. While Bear more resembled the look of Newfs in the 1800's, his natural life saving instincts on land and in water was true to the breed beyond expectations. He is the reason I fell in love with the breed. Until we meet again sweet boy! More photos will be added as we come across them. 12795770
