Starbears Newfoundlands

Our Starbears

We would like to introduce you to our family who over the years have brought us joy, heartbreak, laughter, tears and most of all friendship.  We could not imagine life without a slobber, a lick, a walk or a bear hug.

To date we have travelled all over Ireland and Crufts show casing our Newfoundlands and made lots of very good friends over the years. We had our first Newfoundland in 1995 Casaverde Black Bear, “Milligan” and the rest is history.  Milligan was a great family pet and not what we call show potential so when he passed away at the very old age of 11 we contacted Pam Leech of Mileoak Kennels in England, where we met Mileoak Isipingo at Starbears so to our delight when we came home with her we were delighted to find out that she was show potential and on her first show outing here in Ireland under Judge Mrs P. Greer she got her first Reserve Green Star! We do like showing however our dogs are our family pets and we would not have it any other way.

We occasionally breed carefully planned litters. Our aim is to produce quality dogs with excellent temperament and most important healthy.  All pups are microchipped and come with a puppy contract.

We are both members of the The Newfoundland Club of Ireland of which Carmel is the Vice Chairperson.

All our dogs are stars in our eyes and thats why we call them “Starbears”.  If you would like more information on our family please contact us by phone or email.
