"Poppy is a 50% purebred Newfoundland dog 50% purebred Saint Bernard. She is 2 years old in this picture. She is the closest thing to a teddy bear that a living animal can get. She has a big personality and an even bigger heart. For her huge size she is afraid of her own shadow. Incredibly calm temperament. She adores kids and lets my nephew (18 months old) crawl all over her, peeking in her ears and mouth. She has low exercise requirements and we have to leave her at home for mid to strenuous hikes. She is good with a walk a day and bi-weekly visits to the dog park. She is quite afraid of car rides, something we are working hard on. She is our lovable goof and quite the ham!"
The Saint Bernewfie is not a purebred dog. It is a cross between the Saint Bernard and the Newfoundland or the Landseer Newfoundland. The best way to determine the temperament of a mixed breed is to look up all breeds in the cross and know you can get any combination of any of the characteristics found in any breed. Not all of these designer hybrid dogs being bred are 50% purebred to 50% purebred. It is very common for breeders to breed multi-generation crosses.

"Jacoby at 16 weeks—his father is Lord Justice Flanders, an AKC St. Bernard who weighs in at 180 lbs. His mother is Kiprocks Pursuit of Perfection, an AKC Landseer Newfoundland who weighs in at 140 lbs. At 7 months he was just over 100 lbs., with an expected full-grown weight of between 160-180 lbs. His temperament is amazing, as he is a teddy bear and wants nothing but to nuzzle and cuddle. The St. Bernewfie is an amazing crossbreed that gets along with all other animals and adores attention, responds to affection and is easily trainable."
