All about Lucy

Lucy arrived in our care on February 3 and is currently under assessment.  She is a sweet and friendly gal who loves the company of people and getting loads of attention.

She came to us through no fault of her own when her owner's living arrangements changed. 

Lucy knows some basic commands and we are told she has nice house manners, except for occasional counter surfing!  We will report back on this as we get to know her!

She has never lived with other dogs or cats so we will be assessing her doggie social skills in the coming days.

Lucy is spayed and current on vaccines.  Lucy will need to drop a few pounds to reach a healthy weight, but with exercise and a healthy diet, we expect her to drop the pounds quickly.  We will be running bloodwork and doing a vet check to ensure that she is in good health.

Updates to come in the next few days.

To be considered for adopting a dog through Newf Friends please submit a completed application, which can be found on the CONTACT US/FORMS page. Before completing an application or emailing us with questions, please review our FAQ page.  As outlined on our FAQ page, applicants who do not meet our adoption requirements (ie. no fenced play area, living in an apartment building, having young children, etc.) will not be considered -- please do not email us asking us to make an exception.
