All about Sullivan
This sweet boy arrived in our care on Aug 16 and is getting himself settled into foster care.  He is an energetic boy who is young for his age, and is super adorable.  He has nice house manners, is friendly and affectionate, and will make a great companion for someone looking for a buddy to hang around with.

He previously lived with another male Newf and the pair got along well so he could join a home with another dog, or he would be equally happy being the only dog.  He has also lived peacefully with cats.

Sully does not enjoy being around young kids who are running about near him, or pestering him.  He is best suited to an adult only home.
Skin on intake
On arrival Sullivan was showing some skin issues that have been a chronic seasonal problem, as well as a very severe painful ear infection.  He is being treated for the infections and we have taken him for a consult with a specialist and have a solid action plan in place.  Sulli is responding very well already, his skin is clearing and he is feeling loads better.

His next follow-up appointment will be in early October.   It is expected that Sulli will require some ongoing medication and topical treatments (perhaps regular medicated baths) to prevent the recurrence of issues throughout his life.

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.
