Charlie and Hallie puppies




The 2 beautiful pups from Charlie and Hallie have now left to their new adventures with their new families. Amazing the difference with only 2 pups, Nightfall was a staggering 8.4kg at 8 weeks and Nightstar 6.1kg at her vet check.

Barbet puppy plans 2017

Fingers crossed for the lovely Martha as the 'mating' went as planned, so I hope that I will have some exciting news that it has worked in early May.

Novaforesta Laurel Oak news

Novaforesta Laurel Oak aka Archie, a lovely boy from Reeds fowling Alexia (Martha) and Novaforesta Dudley (Ooli) has now passed all his health checks to be a Stud dog :)

Confirmed Exc in France
Hips 7/7
Elbows 0/0
VWD type 1 - clear
D-locus D/D
Eye test certificate March 2017
MYDOGDNA to follow
DNA profile (isag 2006).

Archie is a family dog who is available for stud for a short period of time before he is castrated.
The reasons for castration are that he is walked in a popular dog walking area and not all male dogs like the games that he plays, so with 2 others from the litter (Lady Fern and Lily of the valley) also having passed health tests for breeding it makes sense for him to sire just one litter and do his bit for the breed which I am sure he will enjoy.

Charamese Hermione x Outdoors Je Suis Charlie puppies


Charamese Hermione aka Hallie with Outdoors Je Suis Charlie  aka Charlie are the proud parents of 2 beautiful puppies born on 5th Feb 2017, they are now 7 weeks and will shortly be going to their new homes. As 2017 is an 'N' naming year in France, the male is Novaforesta Nightfall and the female is Novaforesta Nightstar. I think that Nightfall broke records as his birthweight was 570g!
