5 of 10


Who could ever forget Nana, the enormous Newfoundland nursemaid in Peter Pan? Although fictional, she perfectly exemplifies the giant breed's often gentle demeanor and life-saving instincts. The Newfie is very devoted to and protective of his family, which is why he needs plenty of socialization early in life to make sure he doesn't become too suspicious of new people and situations.
