Perfect timing ! Sorry, just checking !
Not a problem. I understand your concern especially with a large sized dog and slow maturity. I forgot that you used to breed so this would be a concern of yours
It's also reassuring to know that Tori and all of my friends dogs are certified for hips, elbows, eyes and every other known genetic disorder known to Newf's. ...her scores came back excellent, any thing less and my friend won't breed. She works at a Vet clinic so she gets every thing done at cost. The breeder has all the pup's eyes checked in PEI Vet college before they leave for their new homes at 9 weeks of age. Before they leave for their homes they are socialized safely after their inoculations, my friend takes them to work with her at the vet clinic or she gives them all to my sister to take to work at her grooming shop to run and play. My friend has grandchildren who come to play with them etc. etc. My friend really enjoys bringing up puppies and showing is her passion and hobby.
As I am typing she is on her way down (with my sister ) to Bermuda...she is showing one of her girls down there at some major dog show. I'm stuck looking after everyone's dogs. Poor me. haha
