About Baloo

Baloo is a pure bred, champion sired Newfoundland from a farm in Mahwah, NJ who has been breeding champion Newfies for more then 30 years. Baloo will be 3 years old on September 18th, and I have raised him in Manhattan since he was 8 weeks old. We did not know he would be a runt when we purchased him from the farm, but he is only 85 lbs with a lazy eye and crooked teeth... we love him all the same, probably even more... this just adds to his already silly/clumsy/ love bug character. Baloo is a lover... he just wants hugs, kisses and playtime, all the time. He can be a bit of a greedy boy when it comes to food, but he loves all people and dogs/ is very submissive.... Most people describe him as a sweetheart. While he is content just hanging out with mom, he is happiest when he has a canine companion to roll around on the floor with. Baloo has hosted many dogs from large to small, and he loves them all.

  • Sex: Male
  • Age: 6 years, 2 mo. old
  • Weight: 85lbs
  • Breed: Newfoundland
  • Tracking Chip: Yes
  • Neutered: True
  • House Trained: Yes
    Yes he is housebroken, however, he is not used to carpets/rugs because we do not have them in our house. He may urinate on carpet because he thinks it's grass.
  • Gets along with children: Yes
  • Gets along with other dogs: Yes
    Yes, but he will need to be fed separately from other dogs, as he is very greedy and may try to eat their food and drink their water. He always wants water, but we do not allow him open access to water because he cannot control himself. We keep the bathroom doors closed at all times to prevent him from drinking from the toilet or jumping in the bath tub. We have consulted our veterinarian who told us, 3 full bowls of water is more than enough for his breed and size. We give him one bowl with each meal, and another bowl just before his mid-day walk.
  • Gets along with cats: No
    He has been around a few cats and finds them very interesting. He doesn't have a problem with them, though, cats may not like his curiosity.
