Arrival Story: My husband was in London for work and called to check up on me. I asked if I could have a dog, a big dog, and he said yes! So, I researched the breed and found out that the Newfoundland was perfect for us! After 2 years of researching, I finally found the right breeder. And, May 21, 2002, my husband and I picked up Bennett at the San Jose airport. I'm not sure my husband understood exactly what I meant by "big dog" when we talked over the phone. I think he was thinking I'd want a Golden Retriever. But, now we know that Newfs are just normal size dogs!
Bio: Bennett just turned two years old at the end of March and we just had his OFA x-rays taken of his hips and elbows. YIPPEE! Bennett is OFA certified now for his hips and elbows - they came out GREAT! Bennett came from a litter of 10 pups and all his brothers and sisters are also OFA certified! It's nice to go through a good breeder, and GREAT to go through an EXCELLENT breeder! Yippee Bennett!
