My Newfie X
« on: April 10, 2005, 09:42:38 am »


Anyone own a Newfie cross? This is my girl Sadie. She has a bit of collie in her. The woman who sold her to me said she had some collie in her 3 generations back but boy does it show in her. I was able to see her parents, mom was a smaller all black newf(this was the side the collie came from) and dad was an all white with black head newf.

I don't have any other breeds in my Newf, but your baby sure looks like a beautiful girl!

What a beautiful Newf Mix you have!  I belong to a Newf Mix yahoo group and the pics they have there I think yours is one of the prettiest mixes I have seen.  More Newf than not!  I just got a rescue Newf from out in Kansas City, he came from a puppy mill.  He is now 16 months old.  He is my 4th Newf.  My first one I got when I was 19 in the 70's!  Until now I haven't had one in 12 years.....

Hi!
 I don't have any pictures right now (I'm at school) but, I have a Newf mix, too! He's all black with those beautiful, intense sad Newfy eyes. He weighs 100 pounds. He's so sweet and dignified. Have any of you read Rhoda Lerman's book, "In the Company of Newfies"? I just finished it, and boy does it describe how it is to live with my boy!

Rocco is a Newf/Rott mix.  He is 2.5 years old and 120 lbs of pure love.  He has a short, all black coat like a lab.  He has the typical Newf attitude, there isn't much Rott about him except the shape of his head.

My pup, Cooper, is a mix.  His mom was 3/4 Newf and 1/4 Lab and his dad was 3/4 Newf and 1/4 St Bernard.  I haven't been around any pure breeds so I don't know how different he looks but from pics and what I've read he seems pretty Newf-like.  I'm glad cause they have such a good disposition!

Nicole, I haven't seen that book but I'm going to look for it now. I have a brand new niece- maybe I'll get it for her to remind her of her aunt.  I've been Maggie my whole life and added the B about a year ago when I got married to my awesome husband.
