    Henry and his littermates were bred by Ellen & Mick Dabner of Newfhaven Newfoundlands in Hawarden, North Canterbury, New Zealand.

    Found right at the bottom on here.

    Don't know if it's still current though as with all things on the Net. Aren't they cute?

    I can certainly find out for you. We have a newfie that we brought with us from UK and we have a friend who breeds them just south of Auckland. Our dogs stayed with her when we first got here and went on our travels.

    She has puppies in fact, they are Landseer though. All the breeders know each other through the clubs so I'll drop her an email and see if she minds me passing on her info to you. You can speak to her directly then. I know she flew a puppy from the last litter one of her dogs had down to Christchurch last summer.

    Are you sure you know what you're letting yourself in for? We love our Hugo Bear but you certainly find out who your real friends are when you own a newfie. Visitors seem to get few and far between. Could be the hair, could be the fact that he likes to roll in puddles/stand in the rain/ roll in the mud and bring it into the house but my best guess is that not everyone appreciates being covered in slobber everytime he walks past or shakes his head

    You're in for fun fun fun!!!
