German Shepherd / Newfoundland Mix
by Kevin McCullough
(Homer City, PA)
This is Bear a 3 month old German shepherd / Newfoundland puppy. His mom-ma is a pure bred German shepherd and the daddy is a pure bred Newfoundland.
He was born Nov. 11, 2011 he weighs 36 pounds. He is all black and very soft. He is easy to train. He is loyal he won't eat or go to the bathroom with out me.
We have a 6 year old male tri color and this puppy has some of his mannerism. I got him thinking he may have some Newfoundland traits but I don't see anything except maybe the loyalty. Total German Shepherd
What a cutie pie. This is the first time I've seen a Newfie / German Shepherd Mix so I'll assume this fellas is going to be a big fluffy monster (in a good way) when he's full grown.
And if he's like most GSDs I've had he'll like the water - and now with the Newfie in him too - well, I hope you have access to some kiddie pools in your yard or a nearby lake or pool because I bet this guy will take to water - well, like a Newfie!
Good luck with your puppy and please send us some update pictures down the road - I'd love to see what he looks like as he matures.
