Update: January 10, 2012

Happy Newf Year!

2012 is off to a very busy start at Newf Friends with 3 new arrivals coming in over the last couple of days putting us at 9 Newfs currently in our foster program. If you've been thinking about applying to become a foster family for Newfs in need, now is the time. We have foster homes across southern, eastern and central Ontario from Ottawa to Brantford and up into Sudbury. We provide food and supplies, cover veterinary care and expenses, you provide a safe, loving, indoor home for a Newf in need while we search for a new family for them. Fostering is incredibly rewarding, give it a try! Our Foster Home application can be downloaded here.

Here's some info about the Newfs currently in our foster program:

New girl Rosie is a sweet and gentle 2 year old girl who is looking for a great family to love her. Read her bio here.

Arriving with Rosie was her adorable pal Tyson who is also 2 years old and searching for a loving family to call his own. Read about Tyson here.

Love bug Thunder arrived yesterday and is simply adorable -- look at his gorgeous brown coat! Thunder's bio can be seen here.

Sweet boy Tycho 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.

Goofy boy Marvin is having a blast at his foster home. He is scheduled to be neutered and have cherry eye surgery on January 13th, then will move to foster care in Kingston. His bio can be read here.

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. She is a dream Newf, sweet as can be! Read about her here.

Handsome boy Inti is doing awesome 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. Don't miss out on a chance to make this senior part of your family! 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 soon . She is set to have follow-up x-rays on January 14th. We are now accepting applications for River's adoption. Read about River here.


Cutie pie Paris is doing terrific in her foster home and now has an adoption pending. Lucky girl! Read her bio here.

Lovable gal Barbie has been adopted and is now known as Chloe! Congratulations Chloe and family, we are so happy for you!

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.
HART is also in need of foster homes across Ontario! HART rescues a large number of dogs and the need is great for foster families -- they can only save the lives of those dogs they have a foster space for, and their foster homes fill up quickly. If fostering Newfs isn't for you, then consider fostering for HART's all breed program where many smaller dogs are in need of loving foster homes. You can download the application here.
