Mix: ½ Newfoundland & ½ Poodle

Size: Approximately 70 – 100 pounds, and can stand 24 – 26 inches tall

Coat: Coat is soft, long and wavy.  Most common coat colors are brown and black.  Low to no shedding.

Newfypoo is also known as Newfie-Doodle, Newfiedoo, Newfiedoodle, Newfiepoo & Newfydoo

*Many people with allergies prefer Poodle mixes as their fur is more hypoallergenic than most dogs (a characteristic inherited from the Poodle)


A Newfypoo is a mix between a Newfoundland and a Poodle.  They are a very large dog weighing in at anywhere from 70 – 100 pounds and standing approximately 24 – 26 inches tall.  Their coat is long so they will need frequent grooming.  They display a very calm, but playful nature and make great family companions.  They tend to exhibit a loving, loyal, alert and friendly demeanor.  They are very intelligent.  Quick and agile for their size, they will need daily exercise, but do not seem to be overly energetic.  They have a life expectancy of approximately 10 – 13 years.

When considering the nature of the Newfypoo, you must consider the characteristics of both the Newfoundland and the Poodle separately in order to determine the characteristics the Newfypoo may exhibit.


The Newfoundland is known as “the gentle giant” due to its large size, but calm nature.  This breed has a caring, gentle, and sweet disposition, and is exceptional with children and other animals making them an ideal family pet.  Despite their docile appearance and large size they are still active and will need regular exercise.  As phenomenal swimmers they are able to swim very long distances due to their incredible strength and endurance.


The Poodle comes in three different sizes, toy (10” and under, 6-9 1bs.), miniature (10-15”, 15-17 1bs.), and standard (over 15”, 45-70 1bs.).  The Poodle has been cited as being the 2nd most intelligent breed of dog.  Their exceptional intelligence, paired with the fact that they are generally very eager to please, empowers them to excel in obedience training.  They learn quickly and will delight in showing off their new tricks.  Poodles are generally very easy to housebreak.  They are loyal and devoted companions, extremely people-oriented, and crave lots of love and attention.  They are typically calm, good natured, with a sweet temperament, and the ability to bond with all members of their human family.  The standard poodle, in particular, does extremely well in families with young children, while the toy and miniatures fair better with older children.  Poodles do not do well in households where they will be left alone for long periods of time, left outside, or bound to one room of the house.  Poodles have an extremely low-shedding, dense coat which is either curly or corded and should be groomed every 6 – 8 weeks to prevent mats and tangles.  If you should so decide, their coat can also be kept short for low-maintenance.  Poodles come in a variety of colors such as silver, cream, gray, blue, black, white, apricot, red, caf-au-lait, brown, and parti-colored.  The Poodle is oftentimes referred to as the hypo-allergenic dog.  But, while there truly is no such thing as a completely hypo-allergenic dog, they are unquestionably more compatible with allergic persons than other breeds.   Being classified as highly energetic, the poodle, like most dogs, will appreciate daily exercise, such as a walk, play session, or a run at the dog park.

Hi all,
This is a pic of our newfiepoo. (We don’t make a habit of dressing her up, but our niece left the tutu here and I had to see it on her!) We will be breeding her, although we are waiting a year. Right now she is only a year old, so I want to wait until she’s a little older so as not to hurt her. Our plan is to breed her to another newfiepoo to make F2′s. They should be a little more reliable on the wavy fur and less shedding (hopefully). We are looking for the “right” male now. We are also considering breeding her with a full poodle, which will make F1b’s and will really be less shedding but will not be as large ( although I love how big they are!).
Either way, we live in northern NY. So if you’re looking for one and want to wait a year, keep us in your thoughts. Also, if you’re really interested, feel free to email me and note your preference for the father. I love both standard poodles and the newfiepoos, so we’re having trouble deciding which “kid” to add to our family. We also have 2 goldendoodles and all of them are our “children” and even sleep in the bed with us!
One last note, for your planning, although we are a year out from our first litter with Lily, we have decided we will NOT ship puppies. We consider them family and do not like the idea of them being treated as cargo, and we will want to meet each family to make sure they are going to loving families :)
