i emailed a breeder of newfoundland dogs (i REALLY want one!) and this is the response i got. what do you guys think?
Thank you for your interest in our dogs, I am working on getting a website up and running, but were not quite there yet. I usually breed about once a year, and I health test all my breeding dogs for Hips, Elbows, Heart, Cystinuria, Thyroid, Patella's, and Eyes. I have shown in the past, not as much lately, I am more focused on health and temperament, and I have a young family, which doesn't leave much time for traveling to dog shows.
I am planning a breeding this fall, probably around Sept. My puppies sell for $1800.00, are sold on a strict non-breeding, spay/neuter agreement, have a year health guarantee against crippling hip dysplasia and congenital heart defects.
I have placed older dogs in the past but don't have any available at this time.
I require a puppy questionnaire to be filled out and returned and if possible a visit so you can meet myself and my dogs.
Please keep in touch and if you have any other questions, please don't hesitate to contact me
