Here’s some responses from our friends who bought Newfoundlands from us. One of our puppies, now grown, is even helping with moral among our troops in the Middle-East!
Tucker is growing like a weed, he will be 9 months old in March and weighs over 100lbs. He is going to be tall and very robust. He is GORGEOUS in every sense of the word. He has the classic Newfy face that I love, just as handsome as Bruce. We love him and are so thankful that you allowed us to have him. Thank you.The Wards
Just wanted to say thanks for providing us with such a great puppy. Last week we started puppy kindergarden classes. ‘Biscuit’ was by far the cutest puppy in the class. He is catching on quickly… Thanks again.Caryn
We wanted you to know how much we love ‘Rubee’ and what a great dog she is. She weighs about 80 lbs. She is very sweet and obedient. She has a beautiful face-a good combination of her mom and dad… And she is very willing to please…The Dilgards
I wanted to thank you again for a wonderful dog. We will be back for more Newfies in a few years. ‘Ebon’ has been adopted by my husband’s battalion as their mascot. We are considering using him for therapy or hospital visits, as he is so good with people. We could not have gotten a better temperament. We got him his own bike trailer. He sits right up, and I could swear he is smiling. I can’t believe that little guy we got out of the pool in your back yard is now a 140-pound, one year old! He is the best dog, and he’ll have traveled the world a bit by the time he lands stateside again. We may be going to Kuwait for a couple of years, and of course he will be going with us.Britny
Here are the pictures of ‘Noah’ at Lake Tahoe. We love him to pieces! He loves the water and loves to go boating with the family… He sleeps in our bedroom. He is a fun, fun puppy. Thank you.Kirk and family
Tavis is getting so big, he gained 20lbs in one month. He is still very skinny from growing so fast but is up to 70lbs already! He is a very well built young dog with gorgeous hair.
We have had him to the lake a few times now and he loves the water! We also have a pool for him here at home and he is in it non-stop. You were right, it is
funny having a puppy that weighs 70lbs. Sometimes he does things and you wonder why a dog would do that? Then you realize he is only 5 months old.
I... just wanted to let you know he is doing great and is a beautiful well built puppy. It is so funny how much of Bruce I can see in him. He is getting the droopy eyes just like his dad and loves to block you and lean on you just like his dad.Jay
Bruce is the first Newfie I ever met. He was 7 months old and I was spending part of a day with Sonya. While we were working in the kitchen, she invited Bruce in to visit. She had him lay down on a rug while we worked. And he did! He was smart, obedient and sweet... even as a puppy. As an owner of Jack Russell Terriers I was amazed and intrigued. Bruce was so calm, and gentle. I though it would be great to have a dog with such a nature.
Every time they had puppies I would ask, "Do you have one like Bruce? I want a boy like Bruce!" Finally the timing worked out when St. John was born in March of 2010. "Senjy" loves everybody but kids seem to make him especially happy. He has been certified as a Therapy Dog and visits an elementary school and a rest home twice a month. Of course, there have been adjustments to having a giant dog... like giant kisses and BIG hugs!Pam
Last night was the second night of Doggie's Class and Abby was hilarious! She is very smart and mastered the sit and the down command in short order. When she would do the down command she would flip on her back, legs in the air to get a belly rub!! She had everyone laughing. Abby thinks puppy school is solely for her enjoyment and is a social event. In class she was "talking" and trying to visit with EVERYONE so, I took her over to get a drink of water out of the bucket -well that's when it all took a turn for the worse-Abby loves water and she put both her big front paws in the bucket and stomped up and down until the ENTIRE bucket of water was on her and the floor, which was now wet and slippery, 3 other puppies were coming over to see what was going on. 1 Newfie puppy + 1 bucket of water and let the games begin! Tim and I still have hopes for a K9 good citizen award. Abby brings so much joy and laughter (and calamity) wherever she goes! We love her so very much.Trudy and Tim
Our puppy is a huge hit with everyone, the boys were thrilled and love him!!! They named him Vince/Vinnie after Vince Lombardi... Since it is superbowl time and we love the Packers. Thank yooou!!Nikkie
We just wanted to let you know that we absolutely LOVE our puppy Humphrey. He is amazing. We've never had a puppy like him before. I think the Newfie breed has won us over. Thank youBarbie
Axel is growing like a weed and is sort of a moma's boy. He loves graham crackers and could retrieve for hours. I appreciate you allowing me to adopt him. We will never go without a Newfoundland.Brandy
I just wanted to say hi and let you know that Wilbur is doing great. He is growing a ton! The plane ride was not bad. Checking in was not hard. I walked up to the ticket counter and said we were taking him on, and we paid. They didn’t really ask any questions. It was $125 to take him on. At security we didn’t have any issues. We just walked him through. Wilbur slept in the airport the entire time until we got on the plane. He had to stay under the seat, which he didn’t really like. He sat up the entire time with his head sticking out of the bag. He was too big to be comfortable laying down in that bag under the seat. It was definitely a faster trip home that way! It would have been 12 hours in the car. We use a harness, and you are right, it works much better!Ashley
We just wanted to let you know how Samson was doing on his first birthday. Samson is the center of our universe, he's a very energetic and happy dog. He love's to go on walks in our neighborhood and say hi to all the kids. He also loves to go to the dog park and run and play with all of the other dogs. He loves fetch and tug-o-war (especially tug-o-war). He's a very smart dog too, there's been a couple times he's gotten into a bit of mischief and was smart enough not to get caught. But overall he's a very good dog and we couldn't imagine our lives without him.Jeremy & Kimberly
Reese loves Hobbs very much, he does many morning wake up calls, and took down our Christmas tree this year. He is a very good boy. Thank you so much for a great dog!Viktoria
Abby is a bright spot in our world:) she is spunky, athletic, loving, mischievous, VERY curious, she thinks she is LITTLE! Abby is a blessing. Yes, we have to go through "puppy" kindergarten AGAIN, but we know we will get the K-9 good citizen award this time-LOL!
I must tell you Abby is VERY smart and that is not the reason we have been to puppy class several times-Abby is the class clown and thinks puppy class is a social event designed just for her!!
Oh! Abby LOVES to swim (in anything). We take her to the lake and we swim with her. The first time we went I was standing on the bank with her, Tim kind of got a running start and jumped in the water and went under the water-Abby freaked out and was in the water so fast looking for Tim. When he came up out of the water and put his arms around her neck to hug her, she swam so fast back to shore with Tim in toe! She loves to swim with us and still does not like us to go under water :) but we sure have a great time. Thanks again Sonya!Trudy & Tim
