All About Verona
Affectionate and playful, Verona arrived in our care several months ago and is doing very well in her foster home.  This lovely landseer is friendly and thrives on attention.  She has nice house manners, is quiet and easy going and will make a fabulous companion for the right family.

Verona is a pleasure to spend time with.  She knows her basic commands, follows direction well, loves to be handled and petted and is a typical "velcro-newf" who wants to be at her foster mom's side all the time.  She is gentle and well mannered with children and could join a family with dog savvy children over the age of 5.

Verona plays nicely with other well socialized dogs and could happily join a family with another nicely mannered large dog to romp and play with.  She would also be very happy to be the only dog in the household and hog all of the attention to herself!

She has very high prey drive and is not suitable for a home with cats or other small animals.  Families who have small animals need not apply for Verona. Due to her high prey drive, she is not a match for families who want to take their dog to the dog park.

Verona is 6 years old and upon arrival she was in horrible condition.  She had been living her life as a brood bitch for a well know large scale puppy producer just west of Toronto.  On intake she was emaciated and suffering from chronic antibiotic resistant skin, ear and eye infections that had been left untreated for quite some time, she was very ill.  It's been a long road, but Verona is doing much better now aside from her ears.  Her ears are damaged permanently due to the negligence of the puppy producer who failed to properly treat her infections and instead used bleach to clean her ears.  She will need ear meds for the rest of her life to keep her ears in good condition.

She was spayed on February 17 and at that time a large mass was found and also removed.  The pathology report shows that the mass is not a kind that will recur and that removal is curative -- very good news!  She is now healed from surgery and ready to find a wonderful adoptive family.

Verona is being fostered in the Toronto, ON area, and her approved adopters will be required to pick her up in person.  Given her ongoing issues with her ears necessitating medication, a reduced adoption donation of $350 will apply.

To be considered for adopting Verona, or any other dog through Newf Friends please complete our adoption application found here and email it back to us to begin the screening process.
