  June 8, 2012:  Hooray for me, I was adopted!

Hi everyone, I'm Bailey! I'm a friendly and sweet boy who is looking for a great family to call my own.

My birthday is Aug 3, 2009, so I'm a young fella' with lots of energy and I'd be super happy to join a family who likes to take me for lots of walks, even better would be runs! If those walks involve heading to somewhere with water so I can splash around and make a royal mess of myself (and you too) I will be even happier.

Yep, I'm goofy!

I have decent manners but need to work on my leash manners a bit, and apparently I'm supposed to learn not to jump up to greet people. I can't help it, I get excited!!!  I have graduated from obedience class and I know all of my commands, and I'm a very good boy in the house! 

My owners are leaving the country and I couldn't go along with them, so  the folks at Newf Friends are going to find me a new home.  I arrived at Newf Friends on March 12 and tried out an adoptive home but it wasn't the right place for me so I'm still waiting for my perfect family to come along. 

I know lots of commands & am awesome at sit

Everyone tells me I'm a good boy, but I am a little shy at first when in new surroundings. I come around pretty darn quick once I know everything's ok. My foster family tells me if I do some confidence building exercises I will be great! Sounds like fun, I hope these confidence exercises involve water -- I love water! The water bowl is So Much FUN!

Getting groomed
I get along great with the other pets in my foster home and I really want to hang out with the other dogs. Check me out in my video having the BEST time ever in foster care. I like playing, umm, slight correction... I LOVE playing... although the other dogs at my foster home tell me I need to do more playing, less humping. I also like the cat, although I don't think the feeling is mutual.

I am 3/4 Newf and 1/4 retriever and 100% adorable!   I'm a great catch!   I am neutered, vaccinated and ready to go! An adoption donation of $500 applies. I'm being fostered in Whitby, ON.  Did I mention I like water?
