There has been a push withsome breeders to breed Newfies looking very much like Neo's with hair.....very sad really when the boning and head is so heavy they can barely move or hold their head up....the Newf is supposed to be a moderate breed, so breeding to extemes is so wrong. We see some with such long pendulous lips they could tie in a knot above their non existant skulls....
Also huge dangling ears, loose eyes showing haw and narrow muzzles seem to be loved by many.
It is very hard to keep the "middle of the road" breeding steady as there is more and more overdone types out there, the options for stud dogs and breeding bitches of correct type is lessened.
I guess everyone is entitled to breed the "type" that they think meets the breed standard, but give me moderate, middle of the road, sound healthy dogs any day!!
I have to say I do really like your Neo! He looks athletic, agile and able to do the job he was bred for. Congratulations on staying true to type!!
