December 29, 2013: Scooby was adopted!!

Meet Scooby, an absolutely adorable fella' who arrived in our care on October 28 and is  having a blast at his foster home.

Scooby loves to run and play and splash in the water and generally have an awesome time.  He is a young, happy, playful boy with a real zest for life.  He's looking for a great family where he will get lots of attention and opportunities for exercise and stimulation.

Scooby came to us when his owner realized that it wasn't fair to Scooby to be spending long days alone.  He made the decision to turn Scooby over to us so that we can find him a great home where he will get lots of love, attention and playtime!


 Scooby gets  along with most other dogs and could happily join a family where he'll have another well socialized playmate to romp and wrestle with.   He plays hard and is a boisterous boy so is best suited to an equally playful dog who is not terribly dominant.

He is finding cats to be pretty tempting to chase but is learning that this is not allowed.  A home with a dog savvy indoor cat would be fine.

Scooby knows a few basic commands, in French, and is currently being taught commands in English.  He is a smart boy who is eager to please so he should know his new commands pretty quickly.  He would benefit from obedience classes as he is full of energy and puppy enthusiasm and like all young Newfs, needs to learn to control that energy.

He is clumsy around children and easily knocks them over unintentionally so is best suited to a home without young kids.


Scooby is just a young Newf, only 20 months old, and is in good health.  He has been vaccinated and neutered and is ready to join an adoptive family.

To be considered for adopting Scooby please complete our adoption application found in the "forms" section and email it back to us.  Scooby is being fostered in the Foresters Falls, ON (Ottawa) area and his adoptive family will be required to pick him up in person.  An adoption donation of $500 applies.
