Happy Birthday to all of Hera's puppies

Yesterday marked the first birthday of Hera's beautiful puppies who were born in our care after Hudson (the Newf) and Hera (the Husky) were rescued from deplorable conditions in Quebec. Read all about how a Husky ended up in the care of a Newf Rescue here.

All of the pups are now living in loving homes and doing great. Hera has also found herself a marvelous home and is doing great--just so happens her owners dropped by yesterday to pick up a HART calendar which features Hera on the cover (and several of the pups throughout the calendar!) They report that she is a terrific girl, and enjoying a wonderful, happy life.

Yesterday we received an update from one of the adopters who have Kiowa (formerly known as Mr. Slushy Pants)--here's what they had to say.

Hello There Newf Friends!! Well today is Kiowa's 1st birthday. He wants to let his Mom Hera and his siblings know that he is doing great and is a typical teenager...bit of a tease to his house sister Willow but is growing into a loving, loyal, very funny and very handsome fellow. He is well loved.

Please tell his Mom's rescuers that we are all very thrilled that you helped Hera and her puppies!

We thought we would send along a few pics for you to see how he looks today.

Merry Christmas and again Happy Birthday!

Cynthia, Michael, Willow & Kiowa


UPDATE: December 10: Another update from an adopter. Here's what beautiful Khera's (aka Minnie-Me) family has to say :

Khera is doing great. Everyday she accompanies me with her two best friends - Chaz the Bernese Mountain dog and Riley the Jack Russell, up to the barn to feed my welsh ponies. She also has frequent visits with a family friend who owns two Alaskan Malamute puppies - Lakota and Cree, although they can't keep up with her! Apart from her chewing "a few" pairs of shoes and burying her bones in the garden, she has been a great puppy. I can't believe she is already a year old! I credit her low maintenance personality to her buddy Chaz, they are inseparable and he is VERY tolerant of her playful puppy ways. Khera is very happy that the snow has finally come. She is right at home outside in the drifts of snow and chilly weather in Collingwood. I couldn't ask for a better dog. I grew up hoping I would own a husky one day, and Khera has definitely lived up to my expectations. If any of Khera's siblings are ever in our area, I would love to take them out together. Hope everyone is enjoying their Hera puppies as much as I am. Thank you everyone who aided in the rescue of these fantastic dogs.
I have attached a few photos of Khera, she really does look a lot like her beautiful mother.

UPDATE: Here's a recent photo of Dixie, sent to us from her adopters. Isn't she lovely!

Dixie is a wonderful lively, personable psychotic husky :o)

When she’s not chewing toys, shrubs, small animals or her brother you can find her creating a new depression in the lawn, hehe. Seriously, she’s such a sweet little girl and we love her so much. Her and her recued brother Mason have an inseparable bond and they play the days away.

I can’t believe how closely they all look to each other, like clones. How is the mom doing?

Have you heard from the other adopters? Would be neat to communicate with them.



: Here's some picture and an update about Vega (Agent Snowball)

Hi Sandra and all,
Thanks for posting updates on Vega sister and brother. It's nice to hear and see pictures of them on there first birthday. Here's a few pictures of Vega, like every one else she is a wonderful dog. Unfortunately, I'm not as good as you with the camera!! I need lessons!
Thanks Francine


: From Luna's family!

Hello everyone...Luna has just celebrated her first birthday and she is having the time of her life...she is mischievous and very talkative...she looooves stealing your seat and then telling you WHY she should be allowed to still sit there...and has found her forever friends in Molly and Bear.
Thanks again Newf Friends...she is an amazing dog and worthy and deserving of all the love she receives...All the best to Hera and Hudson....and her pups....may you all be as happy as we all are...
The update on Mr. Slushy Pants is awesome...
Take Care
Sincerely Jesse and Family

UPDATE: Here's the latest from Aurora's family!

Hello! We are the proud parents of Aurora previously known as Athena. She is a gorgeous, cuddly one and we just love her to bits as an addition to our home. She loves her brother Blue very much and has had a few run ins with our two kitties. She tried to have one as a snack early in her stay but Lucifer is fine and Aurora is learning that she can't play as rough with the kitties as her big brother. She has managed to get herself into a little bit of everything however. From going through the trash, the compost, anything we left in sight really! But again she is getting better and better. She loves to dig little land mines through out the yard but we absolutely love her to death and she is the perfect balance we need in our home. She fits in perfect, she's just such a ham all the time! She is always very happy to see everybody thatg comes over and loves meeting new friends. I'm more than willing to get the dogs together as I think it would be amazing to see them all together again! (or at least some)
I'll attach some pics for you!

Missie and Adam
From Luna's (formerly Sprocket) adopters:

Luna is doing very well she loves to go walking everyday,all the people in the neighborhood love her,she plays well with all the other dogs in the park.She also looks a lot like her mom. She runs like the wind with her tail tucked and her nose down it is so cute.

And from Edzo's family (aka Mokey)

Edzo is doing great!!!! She's a happy go lucky girl, she's very playful and loves to give lots of licks. She is the light in our life and keeps us busy:)))) Couldn't ask for a better friend/companion.

We would love to reunite with her brothers and sister if any in the durham region area
