Freeman – Hannibal’s Col. Freeman

Dogs of Canada Commemorative Stamp

Hannibal Kennels has received many honours over the last three decades. The most prestigious honour was having Hannibal’s Col. Freeman chosen as the model for a 1988 Canada commemorative postage stamp honouring the Newfoundland breed.

The Dogs of Canada commemorative stamp series was commissioned to celebrate the centenary of the Canadian Kennel Club in 1988. Mia Lane was chosen to immortalize four native Canadian breeds, Tahltan Bear Dog, Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever, Canadian Eskimo Dog and the Newfoundland.
