Our Girl's
Killian’s Hillside Newfoundland’s is located approximately 45 minutes
northeast of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.  We began breeding Golden
Retriever’s in 1999.  After losing our first Golden, Ryley, in 2007 and our
second Golden, Belle, in 2008, we began, with very heavy heart's, our
search for a companion for our only remaining Golden, Jess, in 2009.
It was a lifelong dream of my husband’s to get a Newfoundland.  
Unfamiliar with the specifics of the breed we spent significant time
researching Newfoundland’s to be sure they were the best choice for our
family.  Realizing the many similarities between Newf’s and Golden’s
and appreciating the differences, we decided to find a reputable breeder who
could help us bring our new “little one” home.  We fell in love with a
beautiful black Newfoundland from Canine Acres named Tasha and
decided she was exactly what we were looking for in a Newfoundland.  We
sent in our deposit for a black female and anxiously waited for our “baby”
to be born.  On March 15th, 2009 we received a call from our breeder with
the news that the puppies had arrived.  The minor complication was that
our request for a black female could not be fulfilled but that a gray female
was ours if we wanted her.  We cringe now to think we almost passed her
up but decided to make the gray female part of our family.  “Boston” came
to live with us at 8 weeks and won our hearts over instantly.  It only took
us a few months to realize we were ready to add yet another Newfoundland
to our family.  We called Canine Acres once again and on September 14th,
2009 our second beautiful female was born.  “Dublin” came to be a part of
our family at 8 weeks as well, and we loved watching them grow and play
together.  We decided to share this magnificent breed with others and were
blessed with our first litter of puppies July 31,
2011. On August 27th 2012
we added our big boy "Dundee" to our family. He was 4 when he came to be
ours but fits into our family as if he has always been with us. We hope to
have one more litter from our Boston and then we will retire her to just be
the "gueen" of our puppers. She is an amazing mother so we did not want
to loose her line. We added London to our family at 8 weeks of age in June
of 2014. Her mother, Kendle, was the first puppy Boston ever birthed. She
is not related to our Dundee so after passing all of her health clearances we
hope to continue this line through London and Dundee.
We are a very small
scale breeder. Our newfs live in our home as part of our family. With both
of our children having completed college
and moved out, we have more than
filled the “empty nest” with our "Gentle Giant's", as our breeder refers to
them.  Our puppies are born and raised in the warmth of our home. They
are well socialized and loved to pieces when they leave our home.  We invite
you to come visit us anytime.  We would be happy to “connect” you with
owners of our past puppies as we strive to maintain contact with as many
of them that are willing to keep in touch with us.  We strongly encourage
you to check out our credibility as responsible breeders.  We will not ship
our puppies because we feel it best for you to come and see where your puppy
began experiencing life.  If you would like more information on upcoming
litters feel free to contact us by phone or email.
