I have a child with a mild case of cerebral palsy,he is 7, he is very thin,and has trouble with his balance. Do you think a newfie is too big, would he knock him over. could this be a good match

if you want a large dog if you could get over the major slobber(trust me i own a newfoundland) a newfi would be a great choice however if you get a puppy (we have a puppy right now with a 3yrs old) he/she will knock him down just to play, you might want to get a smaller dog one that will have a harder time knocking him down. with training a newfi would be a great dog for your son, make sure to talk to a breeder the web page for a great breeder were we got our newfi it www.cypressbaynewfoundlands.com
she is on the newfi club and i am sure she would love to talk to you!
