June 8, 2012: Yippee!  I was adopted!

Hello everyone!  I'm Brutus,  an adorable young landseer who just arrived at Newf Friends on May 14.  I'm a handsome boy with a big beautiful head and floppy lips that are great for flinging goober around!

I was born on January 4, 2011 so I'm a 16 month old pup who is looking for a great family to spend my life with.   Maybe yours?  I'm easy going,  know some basic commands and am crate trained.

 Check out how handsome I am!

I get along with other dogs and like to romp and play because I am such an awesome, lovable boy.  I'm goofy, playful and I love to drip goober all over everyone!  What fun!

My foster family says I am a very good boy but a bit of a bull in a china shop, whatever the heck that means!  I'm sweet and gentle and looking for love in a home where it's ok if I clear your coffee table with a happy swoosh of my tail!   

Maybe if I walk around with this yogurt container under my blubbery lips it will catch some of my drool?

I will be heading to the vet soon for a check-up and to get neutered, and will be ready to find a great home once that is done.

I'm just getting settled into my foster home and more info and photos about me will be posted as my foster family gets to know me better.  So far, they tell me I am pretty darn fantastic, as long as you don't mind drool!

I am being fostered in Carleton Place, ON and the lucky family who gets to adopt me will have to pick me up in person.  An adoption donation of $500 will apply.  Did I mention that I drool?
