NEWFIE PUPS GROWTH RATE

Newfie pups at 1 week of age.

Newfie pup at 8 weeks old.

Our first litter of Newfoundland puppies was born on December 29th 2007. The story of this litter deserves a post of its own but for now I want to share photos of the phenomenal growth rate of these large breed puppies. The six puppies weighed in at approximately 1.5 pounds each at birth. By 8 weeks of age they were weighing between 15 and 16 pounds each. The two photos above show a puppy at 1 week of age and again at 8 weeks of age - a mere 7 weeks later! We have met some wonderful families through placing these puppies in their new homes. Our pups went to new homes as far away as the Eastern coast of the US as well as 2 puppies staying close by here in BC.

My new Lab pup, Villa, was born on Jan. 1, so will "grow up" with your pups. Are you keeping one? It's been very different having a pup around again - GOOD different.
