Update - March 15, 2011

It's been another busy week at Newf Friends with another new arrival, and an unfortunate diagnosis for one of the dogs in our care.

Many of the Newfs who have recently arrived in our foster program have high medical needs. After caring for serious health issues in dogs like Mackenzie, Ruby, Penelope, Harold and others, our funds are getting low. Our new arrivals also have extensive medical needs and donations are needed - we currently have 3 Newfs in need of specialized cruciate repair surgery, requiring that we bring in an orthopedic specialist. Your support is needed now more than ever.
To donate please visit
HART's Canada Helps page and when making your donation state in the message section that the donation is for the Newf Friends Fund.

5 year old Ace is doing well in the loving care of Dr. Janice who is working hard to get Ace's medical needs under control. Ace suffers from chronic antibiotic resistant skin infections, gastro-intestinal issues, has muscle wasting, and once healthy enough, may need surgery to repair a suspected torn cruciate ligament and surgery to correct his eyes.
He will have a long road to good health and Newf Friends is in need of your support to help us pay for the diagnostic tests and treatment to help Ace get healthy.

6 year old gal Jade is doing well in her foster home. We will have her seen by an orthopedic specialist late March/early April and have surgery done to repair her damaged knee. Donations for her care are greatly appreciated.

5 1/2 month old Rocky is one of the sweetest pups we've ever met. What a doll. The day before his adoption was set to happen, we made the decision to postpone adoption due to a lingering issue with his leg. We had x-rays done and discovered hip problems, and worse, a partially torn cruciate ligament. We are all heartbroken for this loving puppy and will be moving ahead with orthopedic surgery to repair his damaged knee if our consulting specialist feels it is warranted.
More info about him can be read here.

Gorgeous gal Molly is still searching for her perfect family (and her knees are good!) She is loving, affectionate, friendly, playful and very well mannered in the house. She's a great girl who is looking for a cat free home where she will get lots of loving. Molly needs a home!!!

Special girl Penelope had a home lined up, but they changed their mind about wanting to put in the work that helping a rescue adjust to a new environment requires. So this silly girl is still searching for a loving family to call her own.

Maggie the love bug is settling well in our care. Her quarantine period is complete and she has now been spending time with other dogs and is doing great. More details to come soon!

New arrival Harley is getting settled into foster care and doing well. This sweet boy is 6 years old and gets along with everyone. We'll be getting him all groomed out and are beginning our assessment. More details will be posted soon.

Beautiful Bella is doing very well in foster care and has an adoption pending.

Sweet Lily has been adopted to a great family! Congratulations!
