Aug 1: Maxwell has been adopted!

This handsome boy just arrived on July 23 and is currently under assessment in foster care.

Maxwell came to us because his owners felt they didn't have time for him -- he lived with this family for 4 years,  joining them after his first family were unable to provide for him.  He is looking for a loving, stable forever family where he will get lots of loving and attention.

Further details about Max will be posted as we get to know him., but so far he is proving himself to be a well mannered boy.  He has great doggie social skills with the other dogs in his foster home and an all around nice fellow.

Max is very affectionate and loves to have a lap to curl up in -- he will do great in a home with someone who loves to spend lots of time with their dog.

Maxwell is on the small side for a Newf, more the size of a retriever.   His surrendering family claim he is a purebred who was imported by his original family, but were given no paperwork and were unable to provide the name of the kennel he was from. He is microchipped, but the chip was never registered to anyone. 

We are told he was born June 30, 2006 so is 7 years old.  He is a happy, healthy, friendly fellow who seems MUCH younger than this.

He will be neutered and vaccinated next week, then will be ready to join an adoptive family.

An adoption donation of $500 applies.  Maxwell is being fostered in Mississauga.  His approved adopters will be required to pick him up in person.
