About Us

Our kennel is located in Southern Wisconsin.  At Shorepath Newfoundlands, we are dedicated to breeding Newfoundlands of exceptional temperament, soundness and versatility.  We strive for the betterment of the breed, whether conformation, obedience, water work, draft work, therapy or a beloved family member, ALL are important to Shorepath Newfoundlands.

We are active members of our Regional club, North Central Newfoundland Club (NCNC), associate member of River King Newfoundland Club (RKNC) and member of Newfoundland Club of America (NCA). Dona has served as NCNC President, Treasurer and Board Member, NCNC Water Test Chair, Secretary and committee member, and has volunteered many hours for NCNC club events. She is currently serving on the NCA Recognition Committee.

How we started?

Dona’s love for the Newfoundland dog started as a young child. It wasn’t until 2005 when her first Newf, Macy won her heart. Macy and Dona were an amazing team. They accomplished many things together. Together they earned her AKC Championship (CH), AKC Companion Dog (CD), Water Dog (WD), Water Rescue Dog (WRD), Water Rescue Dog Excellent (WRDX), Draft Dog (DD) and Therapy Dog (TDI). Most importantly, Macy shared with Dona the beginning of a beautiful journey.


Our dogs are part of our family. They live in our home and share our daily activities with us. It is very important to us to make sure that our puppies have a home where they are truly loved as a family member. We will be here at anytime and for the life of your dog.
