September 18, 2012: Jasmine has an approved family and will be joining them next week.

Hi folks! My name is Jasmine and I'm looking for a great new family. I came to the Newfie folk on April 12 with my brother Duke after our owner's living arrangement changed.

Hmmmm, let's see, what can I tell you about myself? I was born on January 12, 2007 so that makes me 5 years old. I'm spayed, weigh 100 lbs and am up to date on my vaccines. I love people and am very affectionate and happy. I love snuggles and leaning right into my peeps. I listen extremely well and know lots of commands. I know sit, down, come, wait, stay and I walk perfect on leash. I don't pull in the slightest, I just walk calmly right beside. I'm told this is a very desirable skill for a big dog to have!

In the house I am really calm, preferring to lounge around and nap throughout the day. I would prefer to join a house where someone is home most of the day because I can get anxious when left alone. I don't wreck anything, I just bark for a bit then settle down. I guess I just really like to be with my people; laying at their feet being an awesome foot warmer, helping them cook, playing.... you know... regular dog stuff. I did live with children previously so could join a family with dog savvy kids.

One thing important to know about me... even though I lived with my brother Duke I'd prefer to be the only animal in a household because I need work on interacting with new/other dogs (though I could live with a mellow non-dominant male dog). In foster care I am learning how to greet other dogs nicely while on walks and so far I'm doing pretty good though I do need verbal corrections at times to keep me focused. My foster Mom says I'm not terrible, I just need to be reminded that my handler is the one in control, not me. I don't always know how to react to new dogs so the dog park is too overwhelming for me - I'd prefer to get my exercise by taking long leashed walks or playing in the yard with my family. I'm not a total lunatic. I just need an experienced owner to take the time to work with me by showing me the proper behaviour and then practice, practice, practice... makes perfect. As I said, I do listen REALLY well and love people. Foster Mom says this makes me easy to work with. I guess, all I know is I love when she tells me I'm a good girl. Music to my ears!!

Check me out playing and having a blast with my foster Dad. Look how happy I am, that toy is awesome! My exercise needs are minimal as I'm not a young pup but a calm middle aged lady. I love to zoom around outside in the yard, acting silly, then I'm happy as a clam to lay around inside snoozing. A perfect companion!

So if you're looking for an obedient, friendly, trained big beautiful Newfie girl to chill with, I could be just the gal for you. Newfie folk said they would like a dog experienced person to adopt me so I could continue to work on my doggie skills. Also, I chase cats, thought I should mention that. :oP

Jasmine is being fostered in the Lindsay, ON area and her adoptive family will be required to pick her up in person. An adoption donation of $500 applies.

If you would like to be considered for adopting her please complete our adoption application to begin the screening process.
