ALL ABOUT ME

clanbear banner

Hi my name is june. i would like to welcome you to my little spot on the net, CLANBEAR NEWFOUNDLANDS.   newfies are my greatest love, i just adore them, they are one of the greatest breed of dog you could own.people who have never owned a newfie, have never known the true love that this speical breed gives. there is only one thing better than a newfie and thats 2 or 3, or4. when i bought my first newfie which is about 16yrs ago. i phoned most of the top breeders of that time, not one of them offered me any advice on what questions to ask, al they said was sorry we have no puppies, then oneday i saw an ad in our local paper, newfoundlands for sale. so i phoned and inquired abut them,(i was living in the north east at this time) so off i went to see the puppies. no one had told me there were back street breeders of newfies i thought exspensive dog they must do the best by their dogs.
how nieve can any body  be, well once i had seen the puppies my heart ruled my head,so i bought a beautiful landseer girl called josie but my beautiful little girl had to be put to sleep at 5mths. i have'nt the words to explain how i felt i was devastated, and i could only think to myself, if only one of  those so called " top breeders" had give me a little advice, like what questions to ask or what problems were in the breed. i would not have gone through the heart ache ( putting it mildly ) that i did.6mths later i did get another newfie and a good one at that i bought her from a lady called Lindsay May of the TRINITYFAIR kennel she was so helpful and i got a beautiful black girl and we called her ebony lindsay and i became very good friends so much so i moved up to cumbria to be near lindsay.she taught so much  about newfies, i mean i was brought up with dogs all my life but a newfie is special. in 16yrs i have had 4 litters of newfies two litters were born at lindsay's house and the last two were born in my own home,out of each litter i kept a bitch. which you can read their stories through their own pages. but when anyone phones to ask if i have any puppies, i don't just say no!! i ask have they ever owned a newfie before, do they know of the problems that are in the breed how to train, grooming and also i tell them to gather as much information on the breed as they can. before taking one on. they change your life so much, so i try my best to steer them ion the right road.i know buyers can be impatient and sometimes only questions that interests them is the price and availability but they should take their time in finding a good breeder, you could be saving yourself a lot of heart ache. i would hate for someone to go through what i did!!! what the buyer has to understand is unfortunately some breeders may be good salesmen but they may not be giving honest answers, some might think this is just to much trouble but it could save a lot of trips to the vets in the future. well i hope you enjoy your visit  to my web page. and please do come back
