July 1, 2017: I was adopted!

Quick Adoption Overview
DOB September 24, 2008 - 8 years old
Gets along with well mannered dogs
Located in Toronto
Fenced yard required

Before applying to adopt a dog or emailing us with questions, please read the dog's entire bio and review our FAQ page.  Emails asking questions that are answered on that page will not be responded to.

Lucy is a sweet and sensitive gal who has loads of love to give.  She is gentle and well behaved, knows her basic commands, has great house manners and is a quiet, easy going gal.  She is a social butterfly who loves to stop and say help to everyone she meets, a real sweetheart!

She came to us when her loving owner had changes in his life that made it impossible for Lucy to stay with him.  She is a loving Newf who has known only kindness in her life and she is looking for a nice, quiet family to call her own.
Lucy is spayed and current on vaccines.  She gets along well despite having an old knee injury that was not repaired.  Maintaining a healthy body weight and taking joint supplements really helps her along nicely.

She is not a fan of slippery flooring surfaces and can be a bit nervous walking in new places, but overall she has good mobility and thoroughly enjoys going for a stroll around the neighbourhood! 

This lovable girl would be a great companion for a family looking for a lower energy companion to spend their days with.

Lucy is being fostered in Toronto; her approved adopters will be required to pick her up in person.

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. Before completing an application or emailing us with questions, please review our FAQ page.  As outlined on our FAQ page, applicants who do not meet our adoption requirements (ie. no fenced play area, living in an apartment building, having young children, etc.) will not be considered -- please do not email us asking us to make an exception.
