Available Rescues

It is our belief that a Newfoundland dog should not be acquired casually or disposed of lightly but sometimes an owner's circumstances change and the Newfoundland is found to be unsuited to his or her present home. It is on these occasions that we try to find a permanent new home where the Newfoundland will be loved and respected for its unique combination of qualities.

Newfoundlands become available for adoption throughout the year. There is a process you need to take in order to be considered for a NEWFFLA rescue. It begins by completing an Adoption and a Membership application. You must become a member of NEWFFLA to rescue one of our dogs and remain a member for the life of the dog. Once the applications are received and reviewed by our Rescue Chair, a home check will be scheduled. The entire application process could take 6-8 weeks.

Once a dog comes into rescue, the foster family begins assessing the dog for temperament, how they get along with humans and other pets, special medical needs and training issues. The assessment is thorough and can take up to 3 months. During that time the Rescue Chair begins reviewing applicants to see who would be the right fit for the dog. It is NEWFFLA's goal to find the best forever home for these rescues. (See Rescue Stories)

Adoption fee is $375.00 and is payable at the time of adoption.




Current Dogs In Rescue

Shadow

Shadow is a petite brown female Newfoundland, weighing in right around 85 pounds. She is 2 ½ years old and is a very sweet girl. She enjoys looking out the window, playing tug of war and plush toys (though she does like to destroy them, too!) She is quite active and loves to just run and play. She gets along great with her furry sister. Her foster family is working with her on her leash manners and say that she listens to commands (most of the time). She will be spayed soon and will be available for adoption by around the middle of July.

Teddy

Teddy, a handsome 3 ½ year old, sweet, Landseer who unfortunately came into Rescue because his family just couldn’t care for him any longer. He weighs just over a 100 pounds and is good with cats, children and other dogs (though he may warm up a little slowly to his fellow canines). He will watch out for strangers and bark to let you know if he sees one. Teddy does have an injured leg which will be evaluated and quite possibly surgery will be required. He will have to remain in foster care for 2-3 months or longer depending on how his recovery goes. He is definitely ready to be loved and cared for the way he should be!

Heading to their forever home soon!

Ramses

Ramses, a 1 ½ year old Landseer is the brother of Teddy, and they came into Rescue together. He is quite the handsome young fellow, isn’t he? Ramses weighs a bit more than his big brother, around 125 pounds. He is a little more hesitant when meeting new people, but that doesn’t stop him from letting you pet him! He also is good with children, cats and other dogs, though he may have a little anxiety when it comes to storms or fireworks. He is working with a trainer because it was reported that he is food aggressive. When he is ready to go, he will head to his foster home to settle in and continue with his training.

Heading to their forever home soon!

Daisy and Gracie

Daisy (black and white) and Gracie (brown and white) are 2 ½ year old sisters that came into Rescue together from a breeder. They have each had a litter of pups recently. It was discovered that they both carry the gene for Hemophilia B. This gene could affect their male offspring, and therefore they cannot be bred any longer. These sweet girls love attention, and give it right back as well! They are good with teenagers and most other dogs. While at their foster home, they will be further evaluated to see how they get along with cats, and younger children, and they need some help with housebreaking as well because they were kept outside and in kennels for the majority of their days. They will both be spayed and should be available for adoption by the end of May or so.

Heading to their forever home soon!
