Mazerolle Settlement, New Brunswick

Junior Handling, Sweepstakes: 3 Generation, Juvenile and Veteran


Devon Nutbeem was literally “born”  into the breed . Her parents bred Newfoundlands under the “harbour beem” Perm Reg’d prefix for 33 years in Newfoundland. Devon carried on the breeding program first in co-ownership with her parents, then under her own kennel name, now Homeport Perm Reg’d in Fredericton, NB since 1983.

The Newfoundland has always been her passion and she has always believed that participation in all facets of its stewardship is a great responsibility. She is currently the Vice President of the Atlantic Newfoundland Dog Club, has been an Atlantic Director of the Newfoundland Dog Club of Canada for many years as well as held many executive positions with the Fredericton Kennel Club (All Breed) and currently holds the position of vice president. She has organized the Atlantic Newfoundland Dog Club Christmas tree drag for the past 5 years and has been active in Newfoundland Dog rescue for many years.

Devon’s breeding program has been blessed with production of consistently sound, well conformed Newfoundlands which have enjoyed relatively significant success in the show ring. Homeport has produced 6 multi Best In Show winners, a Best in Specialty show winner, Reserve Best in Show winners, Best puppy in Group and Show winners, 28 Group winning/placing dogs and 44 Champions. Homeport Newfoundlands have excelled in both Canadian and American National and Regional  Breed Specialties and American all breed shows with a number of class and Group wins/placements as well as Winners, Best of Winners, Best of Opposite, Best Puppy, NCA Select, Best Veteran and best in Puppy Sweeps’.

She was also hugely privileged to judge Puppy and Veteran boys at the Newfoundland Club of America National Specialty Sweepstakes in 2012, as well as puppy sweepstakes at the Regional Specialty hosted by the Newfoundland Fanciers of Alberta in 2011. Devon has also judged Junior Handling competitions in the Atlantic area over many years as well as all breed sanction and fun matches.

She is very honoured to have been asked to fulfill this assignment at the 2014 Newfoundland Dog Club of Canada National Specialty.
