All about Rosie

This sweet gal came to us through no fault of her own due to her owner's health. 

She is a social gal who loves affection and will make an excellent companion for someone looking for a Newf who is out of their adolescent stage. She is very friendly and loves getting loads of attention.  

Rosie hasn't met a toy she doesn't like and is a silly girl who will play tug and fetch happily with anyone who will play with her. 

She is very fond of children and plays nicely with them so could join a family with kids. 

She has nice house manners, knows basic commands and walks well on a leash. 

She doesn't always love spending time with other dogs so would be happiest in a home where she will be the only dog. 

Rosie is in good health.  She is a bit of a squirrel chaser and is quite agile when motivated!  Due to her squirrel chasing tendencies she is not suited to a home with a cat.

More info will be posted about Rosie as we get to know her. 

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.
