We recently had to put our 12 year old newfie to sleep, she has left a huge hole in our hearts and our home so we are testing the water for another.
We have a german shepherd bitch who has never lived alone and finding it tough so any new dog must be dog friendly and cat friendly, we have no young kids so no worries there our youngest is almost 15 now.
We live in the Scottish borders (east coast) can travel some what but I do have arthritis so cant sit in the car too long. We live in a rural area in the country but have beaches nearby too which all our dogs have loved.

We have had a landseer and a black newfoundland over the years so know what we are taking on with grooming, feeding and slobber etc.

Depends on what part of North England. Newcastle is fine for example.

I spoke to a friend who has Newfies and he recommends you contact the Northern Newfoundland Club, they have a welfare section who deals with rescues and foster homes. The welfare officer is Sheena McDonald and she can be contacted on mobile: 07960348177

A dog walking friend of mine has just adopted a 10 month newfie bitch from breed rescue. I'm not sure which one but he went up to Yorkshire to get her, I'll ask him next time I see him.
