November 18, 2013 : Victor was adopted!

Handsome boy Victor arrived at Newf Friends on October 5 and is doing great at his foster home.  He is a sweet, gentle, playful boy who has excellent house manners and is a pleasure to spend time with.

Victor has made fast friends with the other Newf in his foster home and the two boys are having great fun playing together. He has wonderful doggie social skills around  other dogs and could happily join a family where he had another well mannered playmate.

Victor is 7 years young and came to us through no fault of his own.  He  was surrendered to his vet when his family was no longer able to provide the care he needed.  Victor has some ongoing minor orthopedic issues including arthritis in his front right shoulder and arthritis in his back-end. He is taking an nsaid for this and is able to get around just fine.  His mobility is not impacted and he is able to romp and play.  You'd never guess that he is 7!  He is neutered and his vaccines are up to date.

Victor is recovering from some skin infections and with TLC, grooming and good food we have seen great improvement.  His coat is a bit of a mess from being shaved in spots, but it will grow back in nicely now that his infections have been treated.

To be considered for adopting Victor please complete an adoption application and return it to us via email.  Victor is being fostered in the Paris, On area and his approved family will be required to pick him up in person.

A reduced adoption donation of $400 applies to offset the cost of  Victor's pain meds.
