Update: February 9, 2012

Here's what we've been up to since our last update:

New arrival Astrid, an adorable 14 month old pup, has been assessed by our Orthopedic Specialist and will be undergoing surgery to repair a torn cruciate ligament. Donations for her surgical costs and veterinary needs during her extended recovery period will be greatly appreciated. Check out her bio to learn more about this precious girl.

Sweet 4 year old gal Katie will be spayed shortly and ready to join a great family. Check out her bio to learn more about 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 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 and making steady progress with his manners in foster care. If you're looking for a playful, goofy, active Newf, Marvin's your boy! His bio can be read here.

River has an adoption pending, she'll be moving south later this month to join a fantastic family! Thank you to everyone who helped us save River! GO TEAM RIVER!!!!

Handsome boy Inti will be joining his new family very soon! Way to go Inti!

Sweet girl Beatrice was adopted! Lucky girl!

Rosie and Tyson were adopted! TOGETHER! Congratulations all around!

Beautiful gal Maggie was adopted! Congratulations Maggie.

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.
