The newfypoo is a designer dog breed and is bred by crossing a standard poodle with a newfoundland. As a designer breed, the newfypoo will inherit both physical and behavioral traits from the poodle and the newfoundland. Ideally the newfypoo will inherit the positive traits of both parent breeds such as the intelligence and hypoallergenic coat of the poodle and the newfoundlands strength and strong desire to work.
However, not all designer dogs inherit equal traits from both parents and it's possible some offspring may inherit the unwanted traits of both parent breeds. This means some newfypoos may closely resemble the newfoundland yet have the poodle's behavioral characteristics or vice versa. Because of this it is recommended to research both parent breeds before adopting a designer dog as the physical and behavioral traits will vary from dog to dog (even if they are born in the same litter).
