I was adopted December 1, 2015.

Sweet as can be, this adorable 5 year old Newf is the perfect match for someone looking for a friendly, affectionate, gentle companion.

Annabelle, or Bella for short, knows her basic commands, has excellent house manners, is easy going and an absolute pleasure.  She is quiet in the house, has excellent recall and is a real gem!
Well mannered around children, she could join a family with dog savvy kids.She is friendly with everyone, gentle and sweet as can be.

Annabelle gets along well with other dogs, is fine with cats, and is a wonderful girl! She could join a family with another well mannered four footed playmate.

Annabelle LOVES to play with toys!
LOL!  Silly girl!

Typical of the Newf breed, she wants to have people around her most of the time and would prefer a home where she will not be left alone for long hours.  She finds being alone to be stressful.  She would be an excellent therapy dog as she loves people and adores getting lots of attention.

Born on January 21, 2010 she has been spayed and is current on vaccines.  Annabelleis quite overweight at the moment, but good diet and lots of opportunities to exercise should help those pounds melt off.  She underwent bilateral cruciate repairs when she was younger and has excellent mobility with no issues. 

Yep, she's a Newf!  Check out that drool!

Annabelle is being fostered in the Ottawa, ON area and her approved adopters will be required to pick her up in person. We will consider applicants who live within a 1 day drive of her foster, including applicants from the US.  An adoption donation of $500 applies.
