Update: December 18, 2011

We've been busy as ever at Newf Friends with lots of new arrivals. Our foster homes are bursting at the seams and we've got a lot of homeless Newfs this Christmas all waiting for the right families to come along and give them the love they deserve.

With the holiday season upon us our volunteers are busy with holiday commitments and will be taking a little break over Christmas. We will still be checking emails daily and are available in an emergency to intake any Newfs in need over the holidays, but non-emergency emails and phone calls will be returned after the holidays and no further adoptive homes will be screened before Christmas.

We'd like to extend a big THANK YOU to Pet Valu in Kanata on Hazeldean Rd. They have allowed us to set up an Angel Tree for fosters from Newf Friends, HART and Willow Afghan Hound Rescue. It is going to be a very Merry Christmas thanks to so many generous donors! See more pictures here!

Thank you to Erica from Ferghus & Co. for setting up this great Christmas project.

Also a huge thank you goes out to Erica and to Global Foods in Kanata for once again coordinating the Santa Paws Bags for a Cause gift bag drive. Thanks to Erica and Global Foods, our fosters will have special gifts under the tree just for them!


Sweet girl Beatrice arrived in our care last week. After living her life in a puppymill, this love bug is ready to have a new start. Read about her here.

Arriving with Beatrice was Paris, one of Beatrice's pups. She's 15 weeks old and cute as a button. Read her bio here.

Also arriving this past week is Barbie, another one of Bea's puppies. Read all about her here.

Handsome 9 1/2 year old sweetheart Inti is doing great in foster care. He has been groomed, vetted and is feeling so much better! What a sweet boy he is! Read all about him here.

Another totally sweet boy is adorable Ty. this love bug is still waiting for a foster or adoptive 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. Read his bio here. All Ty wants for Christmas is a home.

River continues to make great progress recovering from her second TPLO surgery. Her recovery is coming along very well, she is no longer painful, and she is nearly ready to join an adoptive family. We are now accepting applications for River's adoption. Read about River here.

Love-bug Alex is also still searching for a home. We did a home visit for a potential family for him, but it just wasn't quite the right place for this sweet fella. Alex is so ready to find himself a loving family. Maybe you have room in your family for this sweetheart? Learn more about Alex here.

If you or someone you know is looking for a new canine family member that isn't a Newf, be sure to visit HART, our parent all breed rescue group's PetFinder listings. They've got wonderful dogs of all shapes and sizes, coats and ages who are waiting for great families to adopt them.

Gloria is going to have a very happy Christmas! She has an adoption pending! Check out her bio here.

Merlin has been adopted! Way to go sweet boy!
