Sep 28/13:  Monty was adopted!

 Hey everyone I'm Monty.  I'm an absolutely adorable Landseer and I'm searching for a special family to call my own.   Everyone tells me I'm a very sweet boy and that I have the cutest face ever.  I love getting petted and hugged, and of course getting lots of belly rubs.

I love belly rubs!
I'm 3 years old and am healthy, neutered and UTD on vaccines. I'm not too big as Newfs go, weighing around 125 lbs.  My foster mom tells me I am a very good boy and that I have nice manners.  I know my commands and I am very well behaved in the house. 


 I  LOVE swimming, and running, and swimming, and playing, and swimming, and being goofy and, oh ya, SWIMMING!  I'm looking for a family who will give me lots and lots of exercise.  I'd love a nice big fenced backyard to run and play in, and if I had somewhere to go swimming I'd be soooooooo happy!

Woo-Hoo, I love running around at the farm!  What fun!
I arrived at Newf Friends on October 13 and I'm doing great.  I am learning all sorts of things, meeting lots of new people and having lots of fun. 

My previous family gave me up after a baby arrived in the family.  I was gentle with the baby, but when we'd go for walks I would guard the stroller from strangers.  Apparently I wasn't supposed to do that??
I've always been kinda' wary of strangers and my foster family have been working with me to help me be more confident and to learn to trust strangers.  It's pretty fun and I get to eat a lot of cheese when I meet new people!  Yippee!  I am doing great now, I am feeling more confident and secure and am happy to meet new people!  Yay for me!
Hopefully my new family will have the time to take me out and work on this even more. I feel so much better when I'm out and about with someone who is confident and can make me feel safe.

This is me making my I loooves cheese face

Ho, Ho, Ho!  Look at me all decked out for Christmas.  I helped pick out the Christmas tree for my foster family!
My foster mom says I'm a sensitive boy who is very people focused.  It's true, I really want to be with the people I know and trust. Nothing makes me happier than hanging out with my family!  

Squirrel!  I see a squirrel!
  I lived with another Newf and could join a home with another well socialized large dog. Sometimes when I meet new dogs I get nervous and I start barking, but as long as they are nice to me I'll be nice to them.  Oh, I should mention that I like to chase small dogs.  Apparently this is not something they like, so the Newf folks say I shouldn't live with a little dog.  I did live with a cat before and I think they are fun to chase too.

I'm  being fostered in the Oshawa area and my new family will need to pick me up in person.   An adoption donation of $500 applies.
