From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Country of origin Newfoundland (now part of Canada)
Some kennel clubs recognize it as variant of the Newfoundland

The Landseer is a dog breed. Many kennel clubs consider the Landseer to be simply a black-and-white variant of the Newfoundland, but the Fédération Cynologique Internationale recognizes it as a separate breed.

The breed was named after the British painter Sir Edwin Henry Landseer[1], because in 1838 he created the painting The Distinguished Member of the Humane Society, which shows a dog of this breed.


The Landseer Newfoundland dog is known for its sweet disposition, gentleness, and serenity. They enjoy swimming, and tend to drool, though not as much as some other giant breeds.

In popular culture

The dog "Nana" in Peter Pan, although often portrayed as a St. Bernard, was intended to be a Landseer. The 2004 movie Finding Neverland featured a Great Pyrenees as J. M. Barrie's pet, on which "Nana" was based. J.M. Barrie owned a Landseer Newfoundland called "Luath."
