Feb 1: Buddy was adopted!
Meet Buddy, an absolutely gorgeous fella who arrived in our care on January 1st along with 2 other Newfs.  This sweet Newf is a fabulous boy who is loving and affectionate and will be a great addition to the right family.

Buddy gets along with other dogs, is fine with cats, and is happy to hang out with his foster family and lounge about.  He is friendly and gentle with the children in his foster home and is an all around wonderful boy.

Buddy spent his life living in an outdoor kennel, being used as a stud dog.  Understandably he has experienced some anxiety adjusting to his new life, but he has taken to indoor life quickly and is well mannered and so happy to snooze on a dog bed and get lots of loving from his foster family.

Buddy was badly matted upon arrival and has patiently been letting his foster family work on grooming him out.  What a good boy.  Now that the huge matts are gone, Buddy can wag his tail again!

Buddy is 5-6 years old.  He will be neutered soon and will be ready to join a great adoptive family once his surgery is complete. 
ridiculously cute, right?

He is being fostered in the Brantford area and his approved adoptive family will be required to pick him up in person.  An adoption donation of $500 applies.
