When we started thinking about guardian homes, we had no idea how it would change our lives. So many people ask me what it is and how it works. It's pretty simple, if we feel you have the love and devotion to care for one of our adult dogs or raise one of our puppies then we offer you a dog/puppy. We pay the vet care and dog food for all female dogs that are in the program. The female dogs will be spending time away from you to come here to have her puppies. You're welcome to visit :). We also thank our families with a small bonus once the litter goes home (for female dogs only). If you are interested in a male, the dog will come here once or twice for each female, for about 30-40 minutes each time when he is needed for "work". We consider you part of us and we can absolutely not thank our guardian homes enough for the joy they bring into our world and our dog's worlds!! If you are interested in our program and in one of the dogs/puppies listed below, then please fill out the form. We only work off the forms.
Looking for loving homes that are wanting a puppy and are interested in becoming a part of our Newfypoo Zoo family!! In other words, Newfypoo Zoo is in search of guardian homes in 2022!
Pros of being a guardian home – Free puppy/young adult, male or female. For females - Free vaccinations, and dog food allowance (ordered to your home).
Female dogs Your dog will be away from you for 8 weeks while here having puppies. Your dog will have a heat cycle (blood around the house). Heat cycles can be unexpected, and your dog may miss out on family vacations/holidays you planned to have them there for. Must be willing to abide by our Guardian Home program rules. Must take into consideration that Newfypoo Zoo will be the rightful owner of the dog until they have been retired and spayed/neutered. You will be responsible for all transport to any vet appointments as well as transport to the Zoo for breedings, birth and be picked up after weaning pups.
Male dogs Each year, you will receive $200 for the first 5 litters the male produces (up to 1,000,00 per year). You must live within 1 hour of Newfypoo Zoo and be willing to transport male for multiple breedings if necessary.
Guardian home families enjoy the puppies and visiting their dog at the (old) zoo :)
There is nothing more important to us than our dogs' quality of life. With that being said, we had to make a decision on how to keep our waiting list to a minimum without cheating our dogs and puppies. We continued to grow and could not be more honored to have so many wonderful families wanting our babies and be willing to wait for them. We had two choices, buy a farm and throw our dogs in kennels or find homes for them where they are treated the way every animal deserves to be treated. We obviously decided to go with the guardian homes (the only humane thing we would ever consider) and give our girls an amazing life. Some of our dogs don't care to play too much with the other dogs and would much rather spend their days getting loved on by humans (rather than licked on by dogs :-) These are the girls we felt were the best fit for a guardian home. This was not an easy decision for me, as my dogs sleep in my bed and lay on my couch while we watch a movie. However, after I see how happy, content and loved my girls are in other homes it was truly a blessing in disguise. My dogs are in amazing homes getting so much one on one attention AND I have met so many friends that are a huge asset to the Newfypoo Zoo. Each dog and their guardian family has their own story. Each story is told by them. I stay in contact with my guardian homes regularly. Yes, we really do have the best families ever working with us ! The website will still be managed by me as it is my pride and joy. However, I love the helping hands that come in and do my spell check for me :) Lyn is not a guardian home. However, she is a true blessing that helps me out in so many ways, including managing our Facebook page !! Most of our "Zoo Girls" will have their babies here at the zoo and the website will be maintained the same as with all our litters. We do have one family (Nikki who has Tempy and Freya) that will be raising the puppies in their guardian home. I will be adding/visiting and sharing all of the information regarding the puppies that are being raised in a guardian home to the website, as I do with every other litter. I will also be responding to emails/sales regarding all of our puppies, including the ones in our guardian homes. As you may notice, I am a bit protective of my business as Kris and I are very proud of our dogs, puppies and the way we run things. We didn't become the Newfypoo Zoo over night. It took a couple years of trial and error to build what we feel is a perfect place to call our Zoo.
Thank you all for allowing us to be part of your family and clearly see how lucky and loved our girls are!! There is no way we could do what we do if it was not for these families and the love they give our girls!! We wouldn't run our business any other way!!
Thank you for taking the time to enjoy Newfypoo Zoo with us. I (Stephanie) spend hours a day researching, educating myself and trying to provide each and every family with their "perfect" puppy. My full time job is dogs, puppies and our Puppy families!! Call anytime!! We have the right to refuse any puppy for any reason at anytime if we feel the family is not a good fit for a puppy or the family's needs are more than what we can offer.
