I was born on March 8th, 1997, at a kennel in Ontario. When I was 10 weeks old I came to Newfoundland by plane to live with my new owners Jim and Kay Mercer.
I love people, especially children and love to go on visits to St. Michaels School.
Just like other Newfoundland's, I love to swim and do so almost daily, at the local beach, from April through to almost Christmas.
In about May I start to shed my heavy winter coat and my owners spend a lot of time brushing me to help keep me feeling comfortable and looking my best. I'm a drooler, but only when I get hot!
When I'm out walking with my owner people are often heard to say "who is walking who?" I weigh about 150 lbs right now, but I'm sometimes heavier in Winter.
Newfoundland dogs are wonderful companions, who love visitors. You can see Darby at 64 Old Seal Cove Road, Stephenville Crossing.
