The Landseer is a dog breed. Many kennel clubs consider the Landseer to be simply a black-and-white variant of the Newfoundland, but the Fédération Cynologique Internationale recognizes it as a separate breed. This separate breed is called Landseer European Continental Type (E.C.T.).

The breed was named after the British painter Sir Edwin Henry Landseer,[1] because in 1838 he created the painting A Distinguished Member of the Humane Society, which shows a dog of this breed.
