Update - February 28, 2011

If you have been thinking about fostering, now is a great time to apply. Our foster homes are filling up fast and new volunteers are needed. We are looking for foster families in Ontario. Fosters should have a securely fenced yard, preferably have some dog experience, and should have schedules that allow them to work with dogs who have training and socialization needs.

As February comes to an end, the number of Newfs arriving in our care continues to increase. The last few days have seen 4 more Newfs enter our program, 2 of which have high medical needs. (Edited at 5 pm: we now have 5 new arrivals, another Newf in poor condition has arrived this afternoon.)

A 5 year old male who is suffering from a long list of health issues, and a 2 year old female will be arriving in foster care this week once transport is sorted out. Details will be posted soon about these two special Newfs.

6 year old gal Jade arrived a few days ago and is settled into her foster home. This girl is an absolute doll - the perfect newf! Gorgeous, sweet temperament, loves everyone, just an all around great Newf who has clearly known much love in her life. She has a torn cruciate ligament and we will be working with an orthopedic surgeon to determine how best to treat her knee. Surgical repair of the knee will be costly and her recovery time in foster care will be long. Donations for her care are greatly appreciated.

This little darling is 5 month old Rocky. He arrived yesterday and we will be reviewing homes on our approved list to see which is a match for him. Yes, he's adorable!

Gorgeous gal Molly is also doing great in her foster home and is proving herself to be a real love bug! This girl is simply adorable -- affectionate, friendly, silly, she's sure to make you smile. Well mannered in the house, eager to please, devoted and loving, she is a real gem. Maybe she's the Newf you've been searching for?

Penelope is doing fantastic in foster care. Now that her health issues have all been resolved, she is looking and feeling great! Happy, playful and full of love, this girl is ready to find a special family to call her own.

Sweet Lily is also making steady progress in foster care and really coming out of her shell. She's been visiting nursing homes, out exploring shops and learning all about the world around her. This adorable girl is so loving and affectionate, she will make a great companion for the right family. She wants nothing more than some dogs to play with and some people to cuddle with!
