May 24/11: Larry has an adoption pending!

Well hello handsome!
This is Larry, a lovable, kissable, huggable big goof who is searching for a great family to call his own.

This gorgeous boy is just shy of 16 months old and landed himself in rescue after being abandoned and left in the care of neighbours for an extended period.

He is in need of some manners and like all young, male Newfs will benefit greatly from obedience classes with a confident owner. His leash manners are not too bad, but he needs to improve his off lead recall.

Larry loves to play! Running, chasing, toys, wrestling... you name it. Below are 2 videos his foster Mom took. The first is Larry at his foster home with fellow foster Newf Penelope. They are having a blast! The second video is Larry on a playdate at his foster Mom's friend's house. He made a new buddy and boy did he sleep well that night!

Larry will benefit from opportunities to work on his doggie social skills, and is learning all about how to behave in his awesome foster home. He does have some resource guarding behaviour that potential adopters will need to be aware of, although he responds well to firm correction. He's been getting lots of opportunity to get out and about and interacting with other dogs and is doing well. He would be happy joining a family with another well socialized dog and he gets along well with cats.

Larry loves people and gets along with everyone he meets. However, because he does have some resource guarding behaviours (related to other dogs) we will not consider placing him in a home with young children.

Larry's DOB is Dec 24, 2009 and he currently weighs 114 lbs and needs to put on some muscle.
He has been vaccinated and neutered and is ready to find a great family!

To be considered for adopting Larry please complete an application found on this site and email it back to us.

An adoption donation of $500 applies. He is being fostered in the Peterborough Ontario area and his adopters are required to pick him up in person.
