Katie has been adopted!

New arrival Katie is a gorgeous 3 year old (DOB October 26, 2008) purebred Newf who is looking for a special family to love. She is the epitome of what a Newf should be, a big, beautiful gentle bear and an absolute delight to be around.

Through no fault of her own, Katie found her way to us when her owners could no longer meet her needs. She has adjusted very well to foster care and is just taking everything in stride.

This gentle giant is sweet as can be. She is loving, affectionate and an all around awesome girl! She has a true Newf personality, just perfect in every way! She has wonderful house manners and leash manners, knows basic commands, and is an easy going, lovable girl.

She gets along fine with cats and although a little shy around new dogs, once she is comfortable with them she will happily snuggle up and cuddle. She enjoys playing with other dogs and could happily join a family with another four footed playmate.

She is UTD on vaccines, spayed and is undergoing treatment for some minor skin issues. Proper diet and basic grooming will prevent a recurrence of these issues. She is now on thyroid meds and we expect any lingering skin issues will clear with this.

Katie is a big girl, her last check up she weighed in at 162 lbs. Like many newfs, she is a drooler, which just adds to her charm! Be sure to have your drool bibs ready!

An adoption donation of $500 applies
Katie is being fostered in the Brantford area and her approved family will be required to pick her up in person.
