September 24/11: Jade has been adopted! Congratulations Jade!

Say hello to Jade, a gorgeous purebred Newf who is simply adorable - she's a complete love bug with a perfect temperament and a hilarious head of hair! If you love the Newfy Floof, Jade is your gal!

She has a true Newf personality, this girl is gentle, affectionate, friendly and an absolute pleasure. What a delight! The ideal companion for someone who likes leisurely strolls and spending time cuddled up with their Newf. Jade is a total love bug and would be thrilled to find a home where someone could give her lots of attention and loving,hugs and kisses and ear scratches.

Coming from a loving home, she was turned over to our care with many tears from her family who were forced to make the heartbreaking decision to re-home her due to changes in their life. She has known much love in her life and gives the same in return.

What a good girl she is! Gentle and friendly, Jade gets along with everyone - dogs, cats, people, horses, you name it....well, ok, she does like to chase ducks on occasion, but who doesn't? She would happily join a family with other dogs and animals. She is happy to meet anyone and everyone--an all around great girl!

Jade is pretty as can be, has the cutest head of hair of any Newf we have met, and is simply adorable. She loves to play with toys and to get lots of hugs and kisses. You can't help but smile when meeting her.

Jade was born November 23, 2004 and is spayed. She was 140 lbs on intake and is now 125 lbs and looks great! Way to go Jade!

Seriously, look at her hair! Isn't she the cutest?

On intake Jade had a torn cruciate ligament and has now had surgery by an orthopedic specialist to repair her knee. She has recovered well and gets around great now, enjoying long walks in the woods and playing with the dogs in her foster home. Having lived with an injured knee for quite some time Jade compensated for her discomfort using her other limbs. This has taken a toll on Jade's joints and she does have some deterioration in both her front and back end, but it is easily managed and she is able to get out and enjoy life. This is not unusual for a mature Newf and she gets around very well.

Here she is out on the hiking trails at her foster home:

Jade is not a big fan of stairs and is best suited to a one level home, or a home with only a few steps. Non-slip floors are best for Jade, and all Newfs.

To be considered as Jade's adoptive family please complete an adoption application and return it to us to begin the screening process.
Given Jade's age, and the need for her to be on NSAIDs long term, a reduced adoption donation of $300 applies.
Jade is being fostered in the Bancroft, ON area and her adoptive family will be required to pick her up in person.
