January 21, 2012: I've been adopted!

Hello everyone! I'm Thunder and I'm a cuddly big brown fella' who is ready to find a family all my own!

I was born March 12, 2010 and am a young, happy, friendly boy who likes to romp and play. I'm a wee bit overweight, but my foster folks are going to do something about that -- they say I'm on a diet and new exercise regimen. Oh boy!

I have good house manners, and I know some basic commands. There's a few things I can improve on, like I take my time responding to a come command, but overall I'm a very good boy!

I grew up in a home with 2 other male newfs and I like to wrestle and play. There was recently an incident between me and one of the older Newfs and as a result I have some injuries to my head which I am healing from. My head has been partially shaved and I have a funky haircut, but it'll grow back! I am on pain meds and antibiotics, but hopefully within 2 weeks I will be good as new.

My family decided that it would be best if I found a new home so they contacted the people at Newf Friends and I moved to my foster home on January 9.

Ouch! My head is swollen and sore.
I have always liked to play with other dogs and have been having fun at the dog park. I could join a family with another very well socialized dog, like a nice, gentle sister who likes to run and play as much as I do? That would be so much fun! I'd also be equally happy as the only dog in a family -- I'm pretty easy going!

I could live in a home with cats, if they don't mind me being curious and playful with them. I don't want to hurt cats, but I do like to check them out!

I have been neutered, had all my vaccines and am ready to join the right family.

If you think you'd like me to join your family, fill in one of the adoption applications and send it to the Newf Friends people and they will be in touch. I am being fostered in the Kingston, ON area and my approved family will be required to pick me up in person. An adoption donation of $500 applies.
