Breeder Referral Program

Our Breeder Referral Program was started to give potential puppy purchasers easy access to information about Newf pups available in Canada from NDCC breeders. If you are interested in purchasing a Newfoundland Dog or Puppy from a breeder please take the time to carefully research your options to ensure that you are buying from a reputable breeder who is producing healthy, well-bred dogs.

Newf Friends cannot guarantee or accept responsibility for the health, temperament, or any other aspect of animals purchased from anyone on this list and cannot become involved in resolving disputes between Breeder Referral List members and their puppy buyers.  

  • To assist you further we have an "Identifying Back-Yard-Breeders" section on our website that contains information on things to look for when researching and selecting a breeder.
