How The Journey Started.....
Welcome, and thank you for logging onto Family Newfoundlands. We would like to introduce ourselves, and to help guide you through what we-re sure is a very exciting and often times confusing search for the right Newfoundland breeder.
Our names are Janet and Jerry Cohen. Our adventure into this magnificent breed started in 1994, when we drove 10 hours to Buffalo New York to purchase our first Newfie, Maggie.
About The Breed
Country Of Origin
Bringing You The Best
The Newfoundland is a sweet-dispositioned dog that acts neither dull nor ill-tempered. He is a devoted companion. A multipurpose dog, at home on land and in water, the Newfoundland is capable of draft work and possesses natural lifesaving abilities. The Newfoundland is a large, heavily coated, well balanced dog that is deep-bodied, heavily boned, muscular, and strong. A good specimen of the breed has dignity and proud head carriage. The following description is that of the ideal Newfoundland. Any deviation from this ideal is to be penalized to the extent of the deviation. Structural and movement faults common to all working dogs are as undesirable in the Newfoundland as in any other breed, even though they are not specifically mentioned herein
