Maybe a Catahoula? I could be wrong!
That was my guess too
Mal for me, too.
I'm wanting a corgi really really really bad.
CheyAut is right. The full & proper name is Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever.
The best way to describe them is, take a golden, shrink it down to 40lbs, make it red red & add some white. Then instead of them looking at you & going "huh?" tollers look at you & go "ok what's next". Literally that is the difference.
Technically they are more closely related to Boarder Collies than they are Goldens - so yes they are a bit more active than a Golden or a Lab, but if you can keep their attention, they are far easier to train. Most people think they are spun like Boarder Collies, but there are 2 lines - the working line (bred to hunt) and the show lines (bred for showing). Mine is a show-line dog, and I can tell you they are way way calmer than the working lines. I would never own a working line Toller in my life - They are SPUN!! Far too much dog for my tastes. We have a big yard, and the toller is perfectly content to play in it. She travels everywhere we do on weekends, and is off leash in open spaces all the time without any issues. Of course we took the time training here, but she really is a wonderful dog & just fantastic with children! We don't have kids, so this is something she just had in her. She plays with them, does not steel food from them & keeps them within close proximity of the adults without ever being asked or "herding them". Truly just a fun loving dog!
As a side note - the dog in the link above isn't what I would consider a "nice looking toller" the head isn't ideal in shape, but it does give you the idea of what they look like.
I think the origional Nana was St.Bernard, then I think they used a Newfie or two.
I'd like this dog, Please. Cute and helpful!
Huh! You're right (just googled)! I always remembered it being grey & white!
I just googled a minute ago, and now I don’t know for sure, lol. In the book, it says it was probably a Newfie, but on stage it was a guy in a dog suit of undefined breed, but in the first movie, it was the Bernard, but later movies a Newfie again.
I’m more confused than ever from reading Mr. Google, lol. But I remember watching the old Peter Pan, and I’m pretty sure it was the St. Bernard.
Mr. Google is soooooo reliable, as we all know.
^ regardless it sure wasn't a sheepdog like I remembered!
