RETRIEVER. As before observed the real Newfoundland dog has not his equal for finding wounded game; a strong animal is indispensable as a retriever for covert shooting—one that will easily trot through the young wood and high grass with a hare or pheasant in his mouth—and as this description of dog may be broken in to any kind of shooting, his services will be found invaluable, particularly in the batter.
