May 20, 2013: Caesar was adopted. Yay!

Gorgeous young boy Caesar came into our care on May 11, 2013. This guy is young, happy and as goofy as could be! He was surrendered by a family that could not meet his needs so he's now searching for an active family to join.

Born on October 11, 2012, this guy is just 7 months old, still just a pup. We all know what that means, don't we??? Yep, you guessed it. He's full of beans and requires lots of daily exercise to burn his puppy energy. If he doesn't get his energy out, he's something of a brat and will mouth you, jump up and be a typical young hooligan. He will need a confident owner that is willing to work with him on channeling his enthusiasm and teaching him basic obedience. He already weighs 123 lbs so it's imperative that a boisterous youngster like Caesar be guided and taught proper manners because he's still got some growing to do! No-one wants or needs a 150 lb dog jumping on them! Ouch!

At his foster home there are many other dogs and cats and Caesar is fantastic with all of them. Big, small, male, female, young, old... Caesar acts appropriately with all dogs and would love to join a family with another four-footed playmate. He has no issues with other animals being around his food, toys or bones either (and he's great with cats too!). What a good boy he is!

With people, Caesar is great. He has already perfected the Newfie lean and he loves to have his belly scratched. Everyone is his new best friend! When he's super excited he does have a tendency to give "love nibbles" to your hand but his foster Mom is working on redirecting this behaviour.

When Caesar meets new dogs, he immediately wants to play and has great doggie social skills. Check out the video below of him just after he met a spunky young Beagle. What a good time they had!

And here's Caesar having fun with a Lab mix at his foster home. He really took a shine to her. You'll see what we mean when you watch the video!

Full steam ahead!

In the house Caesar is pretty good (once he's had enough exercise, that is!). He likes to chew his bones or play with his toys (especially squeaky ones) and will happily amuse himself. His foster family hasn't seen him chew or destroy anything but he's been kept very well exercised because we all know that a tired puppy = a good puppy. He is fully crate and house trained as well.

Caesar snores when he's really tired!

One thing about Caesar we need to warn you about... he's a very very VERY messy drinker. We swear he sloshes more water on the floor than he gets in his mouth. A mop needs to be close at hand! He also likes to splash around in it outside, whether it's a puddle, bucket, from the hose, kiddie pool or muddy creek. See for yourself in the video below.

The reality of living with a Newf puppy who has access to water or mud. You sure you want a Newf?? :o)

At least after his mud bath Caesar does try to dry himself off a bit. Ha ha haaaaa! What a clown he is!

Caesar is up to date with vaccines, in good health and neutered. He currently weighs 123 lbs and his birthday is October 11, 2012. He is being fostered in the Guelph, Ontario area. 

His adopters will be required to live within 5-6 hours of his foster home (at the most!) and pick him up in person. Homes outside of this area will not be considered. Please refer to our FAQs to understand why.  Please do not email us asking if we will make an exception to our placement policy for you -- we will not.

If you'd like to be considered for him, please download an application to complete and submit from the Contact Us page of this website.

A $500 adoption applies and a fenced yard is required. 

We will not adopt Caesar to a home with children under the age of 10; he's too young and boisterous.
