Newfies are furbulous family dogs, and while they'll alert and defend their humans if there's a threat, they're not prone to barking from boredom or random sounds in the house. These are self-contained cuddle-pups whose docile, taciturn personalities make them ideal for homes where frequent barking would be disruptive.
In a race for quietest dog breed, the Great Dane runs neck and neck with the Newfie. This gentle giant must know that its formidable size and appearance make it unnecessary to be talkative to be noticed! Barking and lunging tend not to be part of their repertoire, which is good news for humans!
Descended from Russian visual hunting dogs, these are some of the bluest of blue bloods in the Canine Kingdom. Their silence makes them pawsome stalkers, but they're less useful as guard dogs. They love their homes and families, but don't count on them to bark or attack if an intruder comes your way!
