DOB October 12, 2012

All about Maia

Sweet Maia is a gentle, mellow gal who found herself in our care through no fault of her own. She has nice manners, is friendly and affectionate, and doesn't have a mean bone in her body.

This cutie gets along nicely with other dogs and once ready for adoption could happily join a home with another four-footed pal.  She is also good with cats.

Maia arrived in our care in significant pain due to an untreated knee injury.  Xrays show arthritis and some soft tissue damage.  She is morbidly obese and we are working to get the weight off her, build up muscle mass and see what can be done to help her knee.  Once some weight is lost and she has completed some rehab we will reassess to determine if surgery is warranted.

Details to come.

All about Nya

This adorable pup is as sweet as can be, full of puppy exuberance and looking for a wonderful family to call her own.

A typical young pup, she needs some work on her manners and commands, but overall she is a real gem.  Nya is willing to learn and will quickly blossom into a well-mannered Newf in the care of a family who have the time to work with her.

Nya gets along very well with other dogs and will be happiest in a home where she will have another four-footed playmate.  She loves to run and romp with the resident newf in her foster family's home. She is also good with cats (good girl!).

Nya is a lovebug she loves to give slobbery kisses and get belly rubs when she wakes up in the morning. She is a real sweetie pie who has loads of love to give.

Nya is current on vaccines and appears to be in good health.

An adoption donation and spay deposit will apply.

Up To Our Knees!


Boy oh boy, we're UP TO OUR KNEES in vet bills and we need your help badly!

We have Newfs with blown knees coming out of our ears!  This month in addition to our regular vet care, we have 4 dogs in our program all in need of orthopedic surgery (TPLO) for their knees.  Your help is desperately needed to raise funds to help us cover the costs of these specialized surgeries.  

Sullivan - requires TPLO to repair a failed (non-tplo) surgery
Rhue - requires bilateral TPLO - we are doing this in two surgeries with a couple weeks in between
Walter - requires arthroscopic surgery for OCD in his shoulder, followed by TPLO
Maia (arriving soon) - will likely require TPLO surgery

Our total for orthopedic surgeries, with our rescue discount, will be over $15,000.
Gulp.


We'd like to bring in $10,000 this month to help offset these expenses, and we need your help!  Every penny helps, so please give what you can, no amount is too small.  To donate, please visit https://newf-friends.blogspot.com/p/donate.html 
Tax receipts will be issued for your kind donation over $20

UPDATE:  June 21:  We are closing in on $5000, so nearly halfway to our goal.  Thank you to everyone who has donated so far, keep the donations coming!

Thank you for your support!

All about
Hugo is gentle, friendly, loving and sweet as can be. Young at heart, this silly boy has a sparkle in his eye and loves to greet everyone with a wagging tail and smiling face.

This adorable ol' boy arrived in our care through no fault of his own when his owners were moving overseas and did not want to put him through the stress of a huge move like that.   He is settling into his foster home nicely, gets along with other dogs and is an all-around lovely boy.

On intake, we noted that his gait was poor and that he seemed uncomfortable.  We have started him on anti-inflammatory meds and he is doing MUCH better and now has a spring in his step and is moving around a lot more.  Yay! Ongoing pain management will be key for Hugo to ensure that he enjoys a great quality of life.

Hugo takes thyroid meds to keep his thyroid function in check.  He is current on his rabies vaccine and is HW and Lyme free.

He is underweight at the moment but bloodwork all looks good, and he is eating well and improving daily.

Hugo is ready to join a loving home.  Maybe yours?
