Newfie (yep, that's my name)
# 3698

November 24, 2012: Newfie was adopted!

Say hello to Newfie, an adorable purebred fella who arrived in our care on October 14.  This lovable Newf is a very sweet boy and has loads of love to give.  He wants nothing more than to please and get lots of hugs and kisses.

A gentle and affectionate boy, Newfie (aka Mr Slobberchops) is very well mannered.  He needs a bit of  work on housebreaking and basic obedience commands, but he has such a mellow, sweet temperament that he is an easy boy to get along with.

He is fine with other animals and immediately hit it off with the other Newf in his foster home.  What a good boy!  He is used to cats as well as horses, and is fine with everyone.  He is also well mannered with children.

Newfie came to us through no fault of his own.  When a new 2 footed family member arrived in his family Newfie wasn't getting the same attention he was used to.  His family moved to a smaller house, Newfie moved outside and it was clear to his family that he wasn't getting what he needed so they made the decision to turn him over to Newf Friends to find him his perfect family.

Newfie was born December 9, 2008 so he's a young boy.  He has some health issues that his family had not been able to get under control, like recurring sores.  He has been to our vet and is now on medication for the infections and we hope that with a fish based, grain free diet, combined with topical treatment and oral meds we will have the infections cleared up shortly.  The infection is responding well to the treatment and is healing well so far.

 Once he is all healed up we will vaccinate him and have him neutered.  We will also have entoropion surgery done on his left eye which is irritated.  His right eye has mild entropion but does not require surgery.  This is tentatively set for Nov 8 to allow time for all of his infections to clear.  He will be ready to join a new family once all surgeries are completed.

Newfie is being fostered in the Etobicoke area.  His adoptive family will be required to pick him up in person.   We are accepting applications now.  An adoption donation of $500 applies.
