Update: January 23, 2012

Here's what we were up to last week:

Sweet 4 year old gal Katie arrived yesterday and is settling into foster care. This playful girl will be spayed shortly and ready to join a great family. Her bio will be updated soon, once we get to know her.

Remember Valerie? This silly girl joined an adoptive family last year and over the last few months they have been working hard to overcome issues between her and one of their other dogs. Unfortunately, it is just not working out and the decision has been made to find Valerie a new home. This playful girl has so much love to give, please help us find her a great home! Read about her here.

Sweet girl Rosie is doing great in foster care. We've received loads of applications for her and are still making our way through applications to find her perfect home. Read her bio here.

Adorable fella' Tyson is also doing terrific and is searching for a loving family to call his own. Read about Tyson here.

Sweet boy Tycho has been waiting far too long for a home - please help us find a home for this boy! This sensitive Newf 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 recovering well from surgery. If you're looking for a playful, goofy, active Newf, Marvin's your boy! His bio can be read 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.

Sweet girl Beatrice has an adoption pending. Read about her here.

River may have found a forever home -- we're waiting on a home visit! Fingers crossed! Read about River here.

Beautiful gal Maggie arrived in our care, was spayed and already has an adoption pending! Lucky girl Maggie!

Love bug Thunder was adopted! Congratulations sweet boy!

Did you know that Back-Yard-Breeders are a huge threat to the Newfoundland Dog breed? Over 3/4 of the Newfs in need of rescue were bred by BYB. Follow along on our FaceBook page as we post daily tips to help people identify BYB!

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.
