January 22 Update

Ralphie and Murphy are getting settled in their foster home and proving to be wonderful boys, full of love, and friendly and social with everyone they meet.

Ralphie was neutered yesterday and is doing well. Murphy was scheduled to be neutered, but we called off the surgery after learning that he may have issues with his heart. We are having him referred to a cardiologist for assessment and will be making an action pan for his treatment once we have a diagnosis.

We are in need of donations to help cover the costs of Murphy's testing and treatment. Your donation can be made to our parent group HART specifying that the funds be directed to the Newf Friends Fund. A tax receipt will be issued. The link to HART's Canada Gives button is listed on the right side of this page.

Visit our "Available Dogs" listings to the right to learn more about Murphy and Ralphie.

We have another new arrival later this week. A young brown male who is searching for his perfect forever home. Details will be posted about him by early next week.

Foster Homes are needed in south/central/eastern Ontario. If you have considered fostering, now is an excellent time to apply.

Isabel is still searching for her forever home. This beauty has so much love to give, and will make one lucky family very happy. She is a delightful, playful gal, that loves affection. Isabel is an absolute pleasure! Click the Available Dogs link to the right to learn more about her.

Hera and pups continue to do well. We have now confirmed a home for Hera and several of the pups. We are in the process of finishing up home visits with applicants and expect homes to be confirmed for all pups by early next week. They will be joining their new families in early February.

For those that are wondering what a Siberian Husky is doing at a Newfoundland Dog rescue, here is the story of how Hera and Hudson ended up in our care.

Newfstock, the Huge 2010 Newf Gathering in Bancroft is fast approaching! Book your hotel room now to avoid disappointment!

Vendors who would like to set up a booth at this event are invited to contact us for more information.

Artists!
Those of you who are participating in our 2011 Fine Art Calendar Project, we will be sending out updatessoon. Some photos of the works in progress have been emailed to us, and this project is shaping up to be phenomenal! We will need your completed original art by March, and hope to have all of the bios up on our website very soon. It's time to start thinking about what info you would like included in your bio!

There is still time to be included in this one of a kind project. If you are an artist and would like to get involved, send us an email for details.

Homes are confirmed for all of Isabel's pups. They will be joining their new families shortly.
