I'm really not sure what to do...
Ever since I was 15 (I am 23 now) I have wanted a Brown Newfoundland and name him Ferrero. Now that I am at an age where I can keep and look after my own dog, I have been on the search for my little man.
For 2 years I have been on waiting lists, but my boy never came.
Now I have found a 'breeder' that will give me my long awaited pup, but I have only heard bad things about him. I say "breeder" as he breeds Newfoundlands, but he isn't registered. If I knew that I would get my boy 100% then I wouldn't have a problem, I would wait (unpatiently), but I have heard that on one occassion the buyer had paid for the pup but never received it. He has since explained to us why and it sounded like a very genuine and caring (on the pups behalf) answer...Do I take the chance? To me, he sounds like a legit and genuine man, but why would so many people say so many bad things about him?
My problem at first was trying to find a breeder that would have brown litters. Now I have a new problem...I've moved to Cairns! I was told that it would be hard to find a breeder that would be willing to sell a newf pup to someone that lives past Brisbane. Totally understandable! But there are ways around it. I see so many people up here with Huskies and Malamutes, so obviously it can't be that bad? Obviously I wouldn't be walking him in the middle of the day! Hell, even I don't want to be out in the middle of the day lol
I know that I made the decision to move to Cairns, but I only came from Airlie Beach which isn't much different, weather wise.
Do I keep searching for the dog I have wanted and waited for the last 8 years, or do I count my losses and *sob* look for another breed?
Only a twinkle in his daddys eye ♥♡
(IM)patiently waiting for my long awaited newfie pup ♥♡
