All about Luna

Lovely Luna is a sweet and affectionate girl who is looking for a home with lots of love.  

Luna is 4 years old (born April 26, 2012).   She is quite petite for a Newf, and is a non-standard colour (see our article on identifying back yard breeders). 

Luna arrived is rough shape.  She was underweight, had fleas, parasites, an ear infection, inflamed skin from allergies, and we discovered in surgery that she had a large mass on her bladder/uterus.  Thankfully, her pathology report shows that the mass was non-cancerous.  Phew!  

Under the care of her vet and her dedicated foster family, Luna has made excellent progress. She is feeling great, and is now ready to find the perfect family!   Woohoo!

She does have some allergies, which have caused itchy skin, on and off.  We are in the process of doing an allergy test to determine whether she has food allergies.  Her allergies may require lifelong management.  More info will be posted as we learn more.

(Luna's diagnostics, surgery and treatment cost thousands of dollars.  Donations to help cover the cost of Luna's care are appreciated.  Visit our donation page to learn more about making a donation to our program -- a tax receipt will be issued for your generous support.)

Luna is a quiet, good natured girl who will be a great companion for a loving family. She can be shy with the sights and sounds of the city, and will benefit from on going socialization in the hands of a loving family.

Her leash manners are a work in progress and will need further training in her new home.

She is eager to please and is catching on to obedience commands and house manners very quickly.  Good girl Luna! 

Luna gets along great with other dogs and is happiest when she has other dogs around her for company as she does have a bit of separation anxiety.  We are looking for a home where she will have another canine pal to romp and play with.  She loves to play!

Luna is also good with cats so could join a family where there is a dog savvy cat. 

Luna is gentle around children and could join a family with respectful children over the age of 5, or a home where children visit.  What a great catch she is!

Luna is being fostered in the Toronto area.  Her approved adopters will be required to pick her up in person. An adoption donation of $500 will apply.
