Newfoundland puppy breathing quickly

Hi all,

We today became the very proud people of an 8 week old Newfie pup. The breeders brought her with her sister and her Mum to our house, and left about 4 hours ago.

We are quite concerned about her breathing - she is breathing really hard, it was sounding almost like a wheeze, not any more, but she is breathing very quickly - we can't seem to calm her down. It has been thunderstorming here, but she wants to go outside constantly - she just lies down in a corner in the rain or even hail. We are wondering if it is fear because everything is new, or if something is really wrong.

We do have two 4 month old kittens, but she has seemed really good with them - one of them has been nose to nose with her earlier, the other is more uncertain. We are really quite worried - any help would be appreciated!

Many thanks,

Hi, it is hard to say what's wrong.
Just call the breeder and the vet. Ask for advice. The breeder should have had their hearts checked for any faults before delivery to new homes. I do not know what kind of breeder you have there, but you should definitely contact this breeder and the vet.

Good luck

Could be transition stress plus storm fear, plus she may be hot and panting. Does she eat, drink, pee, poop, play?
Are her gums pink and moist?
All of these are signs of good health.

It would not hurt to call the breeder and or vet in any case.

Many many thanks both :-)

She seems to have settled down again now - she has been outside, and has played, she is drinking and has had a little bit of her supper

She is in the kitchen now, settled down and sleeping - her breathing seems normal. Her gums appear fine, so we are now thinking that it was perhaps most likely stress and fear - she is in a new place without her mum and sister, or any of her familiar things. She seems happier now, we are getting the dog equivalent of Feliway tomorrow, hopefully that will make her transition easier

Thank you so so much for the helpful replies!!
