2009 News
Headlines
2009 was a highly successful year for Sandbears with our Shelby (Ch. Sandbears Americano) gaining her title and finishing as the UK's Top Winning Newfoundland bitch.

We would like to thank all of the judges who placed Sandbears dogs and bitches so highly, not forgetting our friends who have worked hard preparing and campaigning Sandbears with such great results.
