January 30, 2012: I was adopted!!

Hi there, my name is Tyson and I'm a lovable 2 year old Newf who is looking for a great family.

I have good manners and I get along with pretty much everyone -- people, animals, you name it. I'm a great boy! I would be happy to join a family with another dog, or cats, or kids even.

My sister Rosie and I moved to Canada from England last year, then we ended up coming to Newf Friends after some very unfortunate circumstances led to our owner not being able to keep us. If a family wanted to adopt both of us together that would be awesome, but we know it might be hard to find a family ready to adopt two Newfs so if we have to find separate homes we will. Ideally those homes will have other dogs so we have playmates though.

I was born on October 30, 2009 and I am neutered and will have my vaccines brought up to date before my adoption. I'm a happy, healthy guy but I do have a sore elbow. I had surgery to correct elbow dysplasia a while ago, and then hurt my shoulder again goofing around. The Newf Friends people are going to have a specialist vet have a look at me to see if I need to have surgery done. If I need it, the Newf Friends people will do it!

If you think you'd like me to join your family, complete an adoption application and email it to the Newf Friends folks. I am currently in foster care in the Guelph ON area. My approved family will be required to pick me up in person. An adoption donation of $500 applies. (The Newf Friends people said if someone adopts me and Rosie together they would reduce our adoption donations.)
