Welfare Still Needs Your Help!
As you know the Northern Newfoundland Club Welfare believes that we all have a responsibility to rescue dogs in need; to educate the public about the desirability of adopting Newfoundlands as companions and family pets in the home.
None of this would be possible without the generous donations of money that we receive, and therefore we are appealling to you all to help by making a donation to NNC Welfare.
To find out more about the work and some of the costs involved, click the link below.
Our members and visitors to this our Club website are vitally important to our fund raising efforts therefore we have decided to raise the profile of Welfare by including below a new Welfare Paypal donation facility. We would be most grateful for any donation, however small.

Club Open Show
The NNC Open Show was judged by Mrs Liz Shears; We had an great entry of dogs, their was a very friendly atmosphere and the show was extremely successful.
All Results, Photos & Critiques are now online.
Breeder & Puppy Website
The Northern Newfoundland Club has recently launched a new website for breeders and puppy buyers.
The primary purpose of this web site is to put potential Newfoundland puppy buyers in touch with reputable and recognised breeders by steering them away from general online puppy sites (e.g. Epupz, etc).
