North Fork's Newfoundland puppies receive lots of tender loving care and are well socialized before they go to their new homes! Puppies are checked by our Veterinarian, wormed and given their 1st shots. We have Blacks, Browns and Landseers. Our commitment is always to better the breed.
Many canines have been singled out in literature, but none better immortalized than Boatswain, the beloved Newfoundland owned by nineteenth-century British romantic poet Lord Byron “Epitaph to a Dog.”
The ancient people dubbed it “the hero dog” because of its
renowned and selfless feats of bravery. Poets extolled it
for its loyal and loving nature, while artists immortalized
it as a gentle giant whose bond was irrevocable. The
Newfoundland is a large, strong, heavy-coated dog whose
versatility on land and in water is unparalleled; a faithful
companion who has found its way into more legends than even
themost conscientious historian can recount; an imposing
figure who impresses the eye with its great dignity and
pride. In motion, the Newfoundland gives the impression of
effortless power. The Newf is a strong, imposing dog,
equally adaptable to land and water. The Newf is a bit of a
“ham” and loves to be noticed.
When someone comes face to face with a full-grown Newfoundland for the first time, it can be a daunting experience. But even those who may be initially intimidated by the Newf's formidable proportions, its awesome musculature, and dignified bearing are soon won over by its amazing gentleness and sweet disposition!
