I think the newfies are mine ...We have two couches, becuase we have four large dogs.
I am around the shows a lot........I think a huge percentageof the dogs are well bred, sound and well mannered...When we think of badly bred dogs winning it was more of a European problem. And now Crufts has even dealt with that.
I prefer my dogs to come from places that show and are Out there with their dogs amongst their peers, and hopefully also in Obedience maybe.
I personally like my newfs, I can get very old books and they are still bred mostly to the standard that was and is.........
The GSD is sad, but there are now people who are trying to change that too
