KIRKUS REVIEW

 Hugger is an enormous Newfoundland, trained to search for and rescue people lost in wilderness areas, snowstorms, avalanches, or at sea. While many dogs are so used, according to Patent, ``Newfies' '' natural lifesaving instinct means they require little training. Appealing color photos show Hugger and other Newfies, puppy to adult, cuddling, playing, and in training; dogs are also seen in a helicopter, crossing a ravine in a rope sling, attempting a water rescue, and digging for avalanche victims. According to members of the ``Black Paws Search, Rescue & Avalanche Dogs'' club, Newfies make great family pets, but beware: They weigh up to 160 pounds, eat 20 pounds of food a week, and love to kiss their owners. Appealing. (Nonfiction. 8-11)
