George, the senior Newf/Golden mix is still searching for a family to call his own. This sweet old boy wants nothing more than someone to love him, hug him and pet his belly. He'd be a great addition to a quieter, slower paced household. George is such a good boy, and has so much love to give! We hope that his perfect family comes along soon! Visit our available dogs listings to learn more about this sweet boy!

Barley, the brown Newf is doing great in foster care. There have been many excellent families applying to adopt him and he will be placed very soon! Lucky boy! All of the wonderful families that are being considered for Barley will be added to our waiting list and as new Newfs come into our program we will have perfect homes ready and waiting for the right match for them.

Ella, the Newf/Dane mix puppy continues to improve and is healthy enough now to proceed with amputation of her stump. THANK YOU to all of the people who have shown their support for sweet Ella, your donations are greatly appreciated. Ella's surgery is scheduled for Friday, October 23 and will be performed by an orthopedic specialist who works closely with Ella's vet.

Edited October 23: Ella's surgery has been postponed. She became very ill this week (possibly a reaction to her vaccines) and although she has recovered and seems fine, we have opted to put her surgery off for a few weeks to ensure she is fully recovered.
