Update: 2011 Year in Review

As the year comes to a close all of us at Newf Friends are thankful for the support of our friends and donors who made it possible for us to save 44 Newfs this year! 2011 was our busiest year since we started Newf Friends with a steady stream of Newfs coming through our foster program.

Many of the Newfs who came to us had serious health issues and required extensive veterinary care. With the assistance of a handful of amazing veterinarians and the incredible generosity and kindness of our supporters we were able to meet all of the health care needs of every Newf who came to us!

Thanks to the hard work of our volunteers, 38 Newfs joined fabulous forever homes this year, and we have adoptions pending for some others. But we still have lots of Newfs in need of loving homes.......

Sweet boy Ty has been waiting far too long for a home. This sensitive boy just needs someone to love him. Do you have room in your heart for this gentle giant? Please consider opening your home to this loving boy. He needs a family. Read his bio here.

New arrival Marvin entered our program on Dec 31st as the last intake of the year. He is a young fella who needs some exercise and basic training - as you can see, he's having a blast at his foster home! Details about him will be posted soon!


Sweet girl Beatrice is doing great in her foster home. This lovable girl is gentle, well mannered, gets along with everyone and is ready to find a perfect home. Maybe yours? Read about her here.

Cutie pie Paris is also doing terrific in her foster home. She is getting lots of opportunities to meet new people and dogs and is such a happy, friendly girl. She is going to be a wonderful companion for one lucky family. Read her bio here.

Handsome 9 1/2 year old sweetheart Inti is doing great in foster care. This boy is a wonderful dog and will make an excellent companion for a loving family in search of a friendly, calm Newf to hang out with. Read all about him here.

River continues to recover from her second TPLO surgery. She had a bit of a set back due to an infection but with continued supportive care she is recovering and will be ready to join an adoptive family in the new year . We are now accepting applications for River's adoption. Read about River here.

Lovable gal Barbie has an adoption pending! Read all about her here.
