Read before continuing on...

Please give some thought to each of the following questions, rather than automatically answering yes.  Newfoundlands are high-maintenance dogs and, while you may love the breed, you may discover that you do not have the required time or resources to devote to upkeep.   But, if you do, a Newf will more than repay you with a lifetime of love and loyalty.

Are you prepared to spend $150 or more each year on heartworm preventative, flea control and  annual vaccinations for a giant breed like a Newfoundland?  

Are you willing to spend a half hour every other day for regular grooming and more time during the spring and fall shedding periods or have the dog professionally groomed?  

Are you prepared to deal with the cost (which is often more expensive due to the breedís large size) of non-routine/emergency veterinary care, especially as the dog gets older?  

Are you willing to provide training to solve any behavior problems?  


The following are minimum requirements to qualify for consideration into the adoptive program for our Newf Rescue Program:

  1. Secure fencing
  2. Rescued Newf must be a house pet 
  3. Past pet owners must provide a veterinarian reference
  4. All existing pets must be spayed/neutered

If you answered NO to any of the above requirements, please do not submit an application as it will not be processed.  However, if you feel you have special circumstances, please feel free to contact your local Regional Rescue Club to discuss in detail your situation.  Thank you for your interest!
