Sept 19, 2013 -- I was adopted!  Yay!

Handsome boy King arrived in our care on July 22, 2013 and he is doing great in foster care.  He is a wonderful, gentle, affectionate Newf and will make a fabulous companion for the right family.  

Due to excessive matting it was in King's best interest to shave him upon arrival.  His coat should be grown in nicely by winter.

What a handsome boy!
A beloved pet, King came to us through no fault of his own.  His owner's health had declined and King was left with nobody to care for him.  This sweet, sensitive boy was depressed and out of sorts upon arrival, but is doing much better now.  King is looking for a loving family to call his own.  All he wants is some TLC and companionship. 

King is 8 years old and has some mobility issues due to hip dysplasia/elbow issues necessitating that he live in a home without stairs/slippery floors. He is in need of dropping some weight and hopefully with weight loss his mobility will improve. We have started him on an NSAID which has already made a big difference for King and he is getting around well and has begun playing and having fun!

Don't let his mobility issues deter you -- King is a very silly, playful, fun loving boy who enjoys a good game of tug-of-war and loves to chase tennis balls and carry his ducky around.  He is affectionate and very people oriented.

We have not had an opportunity to assess him with male dogs but family members of his owner suggested that he may have previously had issues with some large males.  A home with no other dogs, or a very mellow, well socialized female is required.

Due to his mobility issues and sensitivity King would be best in a home without young children (although a home where well mannered children visit on occassion would be fine).

If you would like to be considered for adopting King please complete our application found in the Forms section of this site.
King has been neutered and is up to date on vaccines.
He is being fostered in Owen Sound, ON.

Because King is over 8 yrs of age and has mobility issues which require monthly medications a reduced adoption donation of $300 applies.

Donations are welcomed to help us cover the monthly costs of King's care during his stay in foster care.  If you are interested in making a donation towards his care please visit our donation page for options.  If you would consider sponsoring King's costs during his stay, please contact us.
