All about Bear

Bear is a sweet and gentle boy who gets along well with everyone he meets.  He knows basic commands and has nice house manners.

He enjoys the company of other dogs and could happily join a home with another well-mannered dog. He is currently living with a small breed dog and a male Newf in his foster home and doing very well. 

Bear, and his brother Bubba (who is in a foster to adopt placement) came to us through no fault of their own when their owner's financial situation changed due to Covid. 

Bear is on medical hold pending treatment for bilateral cherry eye.  He is scheduled to see a veterinary opthalmologist in mid-September to address this issue. Updates to follow. 

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.
