They first came to Europe around 200 years ago when those trawlers docked at Poole in Dorset on their way back to Portugal, and this is where these 'Little Newfoundland' dogs were first sighted in Britain.

The first sightings in Britain of the “St John’s dog” or “Little Newfoundlander” were in the late 18th century. Read quite a lot of it on the floor with a black chin resting across my knees - and if that sort of thing appeals to you and, as above - if you love the breed, you'll enjoy the book.But the breechloaders, with their far quicker loading time, ushered in the era of driven shooting and much bigger bags.
