October 18, 2013 :  Eddie has been adopted!

This wonderful boy arrived at Newf Friends on October 11 and is getting himself settled into his foster home.  A change in his owner's work situation meant long days left alone for Eddie and his owner felt that Ed would be happier with a family who could spend more time with him.

Eddie is a fun-loving Newf who gets along with everyone he meets.  He is playful with other dogs and enjoys romping and wrestling.  He does become a little over stimulated when meeting new dogs but with some work this should be easily resolved.  He could happily join a family with another well socialized dog.

He has nice house manners, is housebroken and not destructive when unattended.  Eddie is a pretty easy going boy, but does need work  on his leash manners.  He gets excited when he sees other animals and is especially interested in chasing squirrels!  Some basic obedience training will help Eddie tremendously.  We've been told he is gentle with cats.

Eddie was born on November 1, 2009 and is in good health, up to date on vaccines and is neutered.  He weighs around 115 lbs.

To be considered for adopting Eddie please submit an adoption application to us via email.  He is being fostered in the Oakville area and his approved adopters will be required to pick him up in person.  An adoption donation of $500 applies.
