Puppies require a large time commitment from owners; families who have very busy schedules where the pup will be left alone all day are not a suitable match for a Newf pup. No puppy wants to be in a cage for 8 hours!
Raising a puppy is hugely rewarding but takes much time and energy from all members of the family. Newfs, in particular, are very slow maturing and can be quite rambunctious as puppies requiring a lot of training during the first 2 years of their life. As such, families with young children under the age of 8 aren't suited; the only exception would be families who have EXTENSIVE giant breed experience and children over 6 yrs who are exceptionally dog savvy. It's important that all family members are mature enough to play an active and consistent role in the training and raising of a puppy. This criterion is in place based on having hundreds of Newfs surrendered to our rescue group over the years and consistently seeing the challenges that families raising a young dog with young children face, and the very high rate of surrender by families with young children.
These pups will be available to homes within a 5-hour drive of their foster location -- US adopters will not be considered due to vaccine requirements at the border. We do NOT administer the rabies vaccine to pups under 6 months of age so these pups cannot cross the border. This is for the health of the puppy.
The pups will be placed with a strictly enforced non-breeding contract and spay/neuter agreement. Their adoption fee of $800 includes a spay/neuter deposit which will be reimbursed if requested at the time of surgery once the pup is old enough.
Pups will be matched to their "best match" family once heart clearances are completed. Their foster family will be matching families and pups based on personality.
