A Sweet Little Girl Plays A Game Of Hide-And-Seek With Her Gentle Giant Of A Dog
The Newfoundland is a large breed of working dog originally bred by fishermen in Newfoundland (part of present-day Canada). They are excellent water dogs, particularly for rescue missions due to their thick coat, webbed feet and large, muscular build. Additionally, they are famous for their intelligence and incredibly gentle nature which has led them to be widely known as "gentle giants." The breed was immortalized in J.M. Barrie's classic "Peter Pan" in the form of the beloved guard dog "Nana."
That gentle nature is on full display in this video, when a gorgeous black Newfie named Sebastien is filmed playing hide-and-seek with a little girl called Sierra. She definitely tries her best to hide, but Sebastien's keen sense of smell is able to quickly find her scent trail, at which point the game is over not too long after it begins and Sebastien gives Sierra some gentle licks while she wonders how he got so good at finding her.
