Jasmin the Landseer


Look how pretty I am after my trip to the groomer!
November 10, 2012: Jasmin was adopted!

Jasmin is a lovable, huggable Landseer who is looking for a great family to call her very own.  She is sweet as can be and well mannered and will make one special family very happy.  This gentle girl is the epitome of what a Newf should be -- friendly, well socialized, laid back and an absolute delight to spend time with.

Jasmin is gentle with everyone she meets and could join a family with children.   She is very well mannered around everyone. She'd be a great therapy dog!

She gets along superbly with all other dogs (big or small) and could quite happily join a family with other dogs. She is also awesome with cats. What a great girl! Check out the video below of her playing with the resident young Landseer at her foster home.

Even though Jasmin is 7 years old she still has lots of pep. She loves to go for walks and even has fun on play dates with other dogs. Check out the video below; she's mixing it up and having a blast with an 8 month old Lab puppy. That's the beauty of a senior Newf like Jasmin; friendly and playful with other dogs but they don't want to play all day long like a younger Newf. They like their out and about time, but then they like to snooze the rest of the day away on their dog bed. Perfect!

yep, I've got a bit of gray around my right eye.

She arrived on Aug 26, 2012 and has been nothing but fantastic since day one. She has proven herself to be a fabulous gal, excellent house manners, great with other animals, wonderful with people -- the perfect Newf! In the video below she's making friends at the dog park. She has PERFECT doggie social skills! Jasmin loves to go for car rides too and is an ideal passenger. What isn't wonderful about this gal??

Jasmin loves water!
Jasmin is 7 years old, spayed and up to date with her vaccines. She weighs 108 lbs but could stand to lose a few pounds.  When she first came to us, her front end was sore so we put her on Derramax. Now that she's been getting regular exercise and has built up some muscle, she's not sore anymore and is not on any medication. She does get a daily glucosamine supplement to strengthen and help her joints.

She is being fostered in Mississauga, and her adoptive family will be required to pick her up in person.  Because she is a mature Newf, our usual adoption donation of  $500 will be reduce to $400.
