January 24, 2012: Maggie was adopted!

Nope, I'm not a Newf! I'm a gorgeous young St. Bernard that these kind Newfie people took under their wing. I'm so glad because I'm told I'll find a super family to cherish and take care of me forever. Let me tell you a bit more about myself to help you decide if I'm the girl for you.

I came to the Newfie folk on January 18, 2012 because my Momma had a whole bunch of really awful stressful things happen to her over the past few months. Terrible! Anyways, she had me since I was 6 months old (I'm 2 1/2 now), took wonderful care of me and made me into the awesome, well socialized girl that I am. She was devastated to have to let me go but the Newfie foster lady told her that she would only adopt to me to the most wonderful family. That made us both feel better.

Anywho... enough about that.. let me tell you some good stuff. I love other dogs and am great with all sizes... giant, medium and teeny tiny. I also love cats! Another favourite thing of mine? People!! I love to give big goobery kisses and receive loads of attention. I'm nice to everyone I meet, never jumping up or misbehaving. I grew up with children so I love them too and am very gentle and sweet. I would positively be over the moon if i could join a family with another dog for me to play with and kids for me to snuggle. Heaven!!

What else?? Oh oh oh, I know! I love the car! I hop right in and settle in for a drive to somewhere fun. Maybe the dog park or the beach or a hike. You name it, I'm game! I'm really good at listening to my peeps and want to please. I might need a little work with my leash skills but no worries, I'm easy to manage, especially when I'm wearing my harness. Yahooo!

When I'm the house, I'm calm. I don't really bark much or get into things that I shouldn't. I'm a just a perfect big girl and could fit in almost anywhere! I love other dogs, cats, people, kids... what a catch I am!

Now I know if you're on this website you probably like those big black hairy dogs but guess what? Newfs and Saints go together like PB&J. Check me out with fellow foster dog Rosie in the videos. We just met and we already love each other and look at us play... awesome eh?!? Us Saints are perfect playmates for Newfs. We both drool a lot, same size, love to snuggle and like to be with our people. And one more added bonus about me? I'm a smooth coat Saint! I don't require as much brushing as a Newf. What do you think of that! Foster Mom said it was great.

I love the snow!

I am in great shape, have no health concerns and I have now been spayed. I'm 2.5 years old and weigh about 114 lbs. I'm being fostered in the Guelph Ontario area and if you're approved to adopt me you have to come and pick me up in person. An adoption donation of $500 applies. To be considered for adopting me just complete the Newf Friends adoption application (you can pretend it says Saint wherever you see Newf.)

i can't wait to meet you!!
