PLEASE click on the word "Newfoundland" to learn more about the breed.
The Newfoundland is a giant breed of dog. Newfoundlands can be black, brown, gray, or white and black (Landseer). They were originally bred and used as a working dog for fishermen in the Dominion of Newfoundland, now part of Canada.
They are known for their giant size, tremendous strength, calm dispositions, and loyalty. Newfoundland dogs excel at water rescue/lifesaving due to their muscular build, thick double coat, webbed feet, and innate swimming abilities.
The Newfoundland dog is legendary for its calm and docile nature and its strength.They are incredibly loyal and make incredible working dogs. It is for this reason that this breed is known as "the gentle giant" or the nanny dog. International kennel clubs generally describe the breed as having a sweet temper. in the NCA Breed Standard, the temperament is the single most important charicterstic and is the hallmark of the breed.
It typically has a deep bark. It is exceptionally good with children, but due to their size at a very young age, small children could get accidentally leaned on and knocked down.
The breed was memorialized in "Nana," the beloved dog guardian in Peter Pan. The Newfoundland in general is good with other animals, but their size can create problems if not trained.
We are NOT advertising puppies for sale, I occasionally have puppies and adults available to pre-approved homes.
Why do I breed? I have had Newfs since the late 1970's. I raised my daughters as a single parent with a Newf. Now that my children are grown and my obligations are finished, I can do what I want to do, which is to preserve the Original Newfoundland in trying to retain health and temperament and replace lost size and bone.
The primary purpose for every litter I breed is to bring forth the Newfs for myself, to be part of my family, to love and to show, and to continue the breeding plan I have developed.
Every litter which is bred is price-ranged based upon the pedigree involved with the sire and dam, Quality and scarcity. When the pups are about 8 weeks old they are professionally evaluated as individuals, and more specific prices are set for those pups which are to be sold. Only those pups in excess of what I ( or co-breeder(s)) plan to keep, according to the results of the professional evaluation, are ever sold. WE RETAIN COOWNERSHIP OF ANY NEWF WHO LEAVES OUR HOME FOR LIFE. IF YOU DO NOT WANT BREEDERS WHO ARE INVOLVED AND CARE ABOUT A NEWF FOR HIS OR HER ENTIRE LIFE, WE ARE NOT THE BREEDERS YOU NEED TO DEAL WITH.
