All about Triton

This friendly and affectionate fella is sweet as can be, and looking for a very special family to call his own. Triton knows basic commands and is well mannered in the house, gets along nicely with other dogs, and is a very sweet boy who just needs some extra TLC. 

Triton is currently on medical hold.  He arrived with a long history of recurring vomiting, with no diagnosis confirmed.  Upon intake into our care he was taken to the vet for diagnostics and our suspicions were confirmed -- Triton has a condition called megaesophagus.  This is a condition that will require lifelong management, necessitating that he sit in an upright position while eating and for a period of time after eating to ensure that his food travels to his stomach.

We are putting together an action plan to best meet Triton's needs, and he is undergoing treatment for aspiration pneumonia at the moment.  He will be ready to join an adoptive home once we have his condition stabilized.

We are looking for a very special adopter to open their hearts to this boy and give him the care he needs.

He is located in Waterdown, ON. 

He is suited to an adult only home.
Due to his health condition, our standard adoption donation will be waived.

To be considered for adopting a dog through Newf Friends please submit a completed application, which can be found on the CONTACT US/FORMS page.
