Newf Alert! Newf Alert!

April 14th, 2007, 01:59 PM
Ok, I met some newfs today, Leila and Pablo. They are AMAZING doggies. Sooo cuddly and sweet and they'll be even more so after they are shaved down and freshened up...

Consider these the "before" pictures...

You can see their personalities though. Sooooo sweeeeeet!

Hi, I'm Pablo and I need rubs!!!

I'm Leila, Pablo's mom and I need cuddles, too!

We both need our past completely shaved off of us... And it will be. We're in awesome hands now.

Pablo: I've had a hard life and I just need some lovin'. Yes, I'm stinky right now, but I really need some lovin'.

Oh, yeah. Right there.

Leila: How come they won't shake off?

April 14th, 2007, 02:01 PM
Ohhhhmy DAWG ~ I'm in LOVE. :lovestruck: :lovestruck: :lovestruck:

April 14th, 2007, 02:02 PM
Pablo: Sigh. Thanks for the scratches.

How about a belly rub?

Leila: I can't wait to get this monkey off my back.

*deep breath*

April 14th, 2007, 02:03 PM
And the money shots:


April 14th, 2007, 02:06 PM
totally sickening how people can treat animals so poorly - i mean WTF, how much does a freaking comb cost? i can only imagine the state of their teeth, feet, ears and other body parts... "dog chow delight" :sad: these poor, sweet beasts... so happy they are in a better place now, aimed for a new and better life. thanks for the photos, their awesome personalities really shine through. eyes to make the blackest of hearts melt... except for their bastid "owners" though. may they rot in hell with pitchforks up their arses for all eternity! :evil:

April 14th, 2007, 02:10 PM
Yeah, they were "outside" dogs, but amazingly enough, they're clean in their kennels at the vet, which implies they weren't always outside doggies. :sad:

They're bears though. BEARS! :D They're soooo huge! Can't wait for them to get the mats out though. They look so terrible with all those mats. :sad:

Leila's got this sort of e-collar ring of mats around her neck. It's just solid. :sad:

April 14th, 2007, 02:20 PM
Awesome job with the photos Prin! Thanks so much for coming to take them. They have to be two of the nicest newfs I've met. Both of them surprisingly have fairly decent teeth. Now all they need is that bath and shave to make them feel better and smell better. Pablo is being neutered on Monday. Leila was spayed by the original owner. Both will have their vaccinations as we have no records. They're looking for a foster home until such time as they are adopted. We'd like them to remain together in foster if possible. They are fine without each other, as they are separated at the vet's office due to their size but for transitioning it's a comfort thing for them. They are not barkers at all. They are typical couch potatoe newfs. Leila is approximately 4-5 and Pablo between 2 and 3.

April 14th, 2007, 02:22 PM
OMG they are so huge, so beautiful:cloud9: They really look like gentle giants, I can't see how someone wouldn't give them the loving they deserve:sad:

April 14th, 2007, 02:27 PM
BMD-- he said I could!!!

April 14th, 2007, 02:30 PM
Are you going to foster them????

April 14th, 2007, 02:33 PM
Tell that man of yours that he deserves a medal and is going to get a gourmet meal cooked for him at my place! Tell him pick his favorites and I'll cook up a storm.

April 14th, 2007, 02:35 PM
hehe, thanks. :D

It was the full body shave and bath that did it for him. :D

I just hope they get along with Boo... :fingerscr

April 14th, 2007, 02:35 PM
Are you going to foster them????

Apparently! :highfive:

April 14th, 2007, 02:36 PM
Omg that is wonderful news:highfive:

April 14th, 2007, 02:37 PM
Wow, these are magnifcent looking dogs! They do look just huge! Just a beautiful pair, even in this terrible unkempt condition.:sad: SO sweet and gentle looking.. what faces!:cloud9:
BMDluver, I hope a foster home can be found where they can stay together.:fingerscr

April 14th, 2007, 02:38 PM
You tell that man of yours all the ladies of think he's Da Bomb

April 14th, 2007, 02:40 PM
oh, I'm behind the events here!:o
You're taking them Prin! Whoohoo! What fantastic news!:highfive:
:grouphug: to your man!:)

April 14th, 2007, 02:44 PM
Yeah, I told him he's the hero on here, he's got a lot of ladies happy with him AND he gets a dinner of favorites.:D :laughing:

Fostering when you're allergic pays off.:D

I also told him one pic of him with 4 big doggies will have the womens swooning. :laughing:

April 14th, 2007, 02:53 PM
Prin what great news...I think all the montreal based members need to take him out for can look after dessert:D

April 14th, 2007, 02:57 PM
lol can I come to dinner too? Or is it just him? :D

I'm wondering how to make two giant newfs look inconspicuous in my neighborhood...:D

"Oh those? Those aren't dogs. They're bears... Yep. Bears."

And I have to newf proof my house too... (aka make a little more walking space.:D)

April 14th, 2007, 03:16 PM
Are they here yet? :D

I'm all excited now, but I still have to wait a few days. :laughing: :o

April 14th, 2007, 03:47 PM
Aww congrats! Beautiful babies!

April 14th, 2007, 04:15 PM
Lol Prin...... ya don't want em all stinky right now.... rather have em smelling like roses for their premiere chez vous!;)

April 14th, 2007, 04:16 PM

April 14th, 2007, 04:18 PM

April 14th, 2007, 05:22 PM
Prin, check out what I was able to do with the photos!

I can't believe how matted they are, they are going to feel so good once they're shaved.

April 14th, 2007, 05:25 PM
Awesome slideshow BMD! :highfive:

Thanks everybody. I'll make sure you're all kept up to date on everything.:)

April 14th, 2007, 05:34 PM
Thanks Prin! Now you just need to take some kick butt photos of Sam... so I can update his slideshow!

April 14th, 2007, 05:36 PM

April 14th, 2007, 05:46 PM
Fantastic work on the slide show BMD... and of course have has anyone mentioned lately how much you are appreciated ? Gawd ~ see , this is why I don't go on petfinder or rescue websites, I get too :sad: overwhelmed.

The world is truly a richer place for people like you, Prin, her man, Frenchy, Poodletalk and all the other folks who save our babies.

Thank you thank you thank you ~ just gave the sound-asleep Declan a big hug to thank you !

April 14th, 2007, 06:11 PM
Wow Prin they are beautiful:lovestruck: .atleast there going to be in good hands with you and your hubby.hope the other kids adjust well will those beauties.

April 14th, 2007, 06:43 PM
Pablo: Sigh. Thanks for the scratches.

I can't get this photo outa my mind.....lookit 'im!! awwww, I wanna hug him :grouphug:

April 14th, 2007, 06:48 PM
I know eh? He needs hugs too! :sad:

I tried to make my man read this thread, but he didn't finish page 1... Blushing too hard. :lovestruck:

April 14th, 2007, 06:48 PM
Thanks Mummmum.... Anytime you want to hug a bear, feel free Meb... they adore attention.

April 14th, 2007, 07:01 PM
I looove newfies especially landseers. Big smooshy faces!!! :lovestruck: I am so glad these guys got rescued, I bet they'll feel better after a grooming!

April 14th, 2007, 07:31 PM
What awesome news. :highfive: It's so sad that they were neglected so badly. :sad: Once they're bathed and shaven they will feel so much better. And, I know you will do wonders for them. :cloud9: :angel:

HUGS to your man for being such a great guy. :grouphug: :angel: :highfive:

April 14th, 2007, 07:37 PM
I can't wait to see the after photos...they look like they are sooooo overdue for attention. I have a feeling they'll be getting lots of hugs and kisses:cloud9:

April 14th, 2007, 07:51 PM
Heck yeah! Nothing but kisses and hugs here. Oh, and maybe some food, water and exercise. :rolleyes:

April 14th, 2007, 07:58 PM
Interested to see under the coat to tell if they are thin or not... want them to eat something with a fish oil in it to improve their coats.. thinking of Eagle Pack Fish and Anchovy to start provided they'll eat it... what's yer thoughts Prin?

April 14th, 2007, 08:13 PM
I can put them on Barking at the Moon with a fish oil supplement, if you like. :)

April 14th, 2007, 08:14 PM
Barking at the moon:

My fish oil supp:
(I gave that to Lily while she was here too... Made her shiny pretty quick)

April 14th, 2007, 08:21 PM
Or if that's too expensive (because it is) I can just give them Canidae with the fish oil supps. The fish oil should be enough to get their coats glowing without having it in the food. :shrug:

April 14th, 2007, 08:22 PM
Ooo!! Or I could do Canidae and supplement it with the Barking at the Moon and the supps like I do for Jems! Oooo!! I'm so excited! :crazy:

April 14th, 2007, 08:24 PM
What does Canidae run a bag? or Barking at the Moon?

April 14th, 2007, 08:25 PM
Canidae, the lamb and rice I have, is $55 for 40lbs. The BATM is $75 for 33lbs...

April 14th, 2007, 08:31 PM
Think it will need to be Canidae with supplement. I have some solid gold sea meal here and can get something else if it works better for a supplement ie. fish oil caps...etc..

April 14th, 2007, 08:37 PM
DOWN Prin ! DOWN !

Grrrrl..ya gotta wait a few days...don't get yerself into a tizzy.

I remember Dec looked much like that too when he came home (no disrespect to the rescue, she had too many, too little time, a full-time job and a broken hand ~ I have nothing but respect for what she is able to do). Declan's coat was so bad that when I pointed out a huge cyst to the Vet she was surprized I had found it. :o

Hang in there Prin ~ only another few days !

April 14th, 2007, 08:42 PM
It's ok, BMD, I have the fish juice already.:) No biggie on that. Canidae it is.:)

April 14th, 2007, 08:42 PM
Mum, when a doggy comes here, they get all we have.:o That's why I don't foster so often. They have to leave here lookin' goooood. :D

April 14th, 2007, 08:50 PM
Can I come and visit....can I can I can I:D

April 14th, 2007, 09:08 PM
Well, yeah, but there's no newfs here yet. :laughing:

April 14th, 2007, 09:34 PM
Prin, :o ummm, maybe you'll need a hand with walking them, or hmmm, wiping muddy paws, or, how about doggy-sitting while you and your man go out for that lovely dinner? I think I heard that Newfs need, ummm, 20 or more hours of hugging a day :confused: :o so maybe it might be a little overwhelming for you, maybe? I can always come give you a hand, especially with the hugging part :o I'm pretty good at that :o

Way to go BMDluver and Prin; they're adorable now but I can't wait to see them all sweetened up. I can get the Canidae for 50$ a bag tax included if that might help.

April 14th, 2007, 09:40 PM
hehe, we'll see, Luckypenny. I'm not good at sharing. :laughing: :D

I'm sure BMD wouldn't mind a little discount.:D Is that the lamb and rice one or the chicken? (I just kind of prefer no chicken kibble in my house because if Boo gets any, it's disaster city :o)

April 14th, 2007, 11:23 PM
OMG, what exciting news. They look so adorable and loving even in their "rough" state. Hugs to the man for agreeing to foster and of course to you for badgering him into it :D .

April 15th, 2007, 07:01 AM
Just shown my friend the pics and we may have a forever home for the pair, she's making arrangements as we speak. She'll wait and see what the rest of the family members say. :fingerscr :fingerscr

April 15th, 2007, 07:59 AM
I somehow missed all this,what a great thread with a happy,ending LOVE those:thumbs up
Newfies are wonderful big lugs,drool and all and this pair were sooo very fortunate,can't wait to see a cleanedup pic..
Prin,kudos to you and the man,hopefully everyone will get along:pray: :dog:

April 15th, 2007, 08:07 AM
I've missed this thread, too, so far, but lots of :highfive: to everyone involved! :fingerscr on a permanent home, x.l.r. (But maybe not too soon so that Prin gets her chance to foster for a bit, ;) ).

BTW, I've had great luck with Canidae and fish oil capsules (but that's the Chickeny Canidae.) Should definitely help these two bears get all shiny and purty(er). :thumbs up

April 15th, 2007, 09:00 AM
OMG, Prin and BMDLover this is awesome, you guys rock so hard! They look like a couple of cuddly giants, you're so lucky Prin. I can't wait to see what they look like post shave. :grouphug: to you and your man.

April 15th, 2007, 09:04 AM
Just shown my friend the pics and we may have a forever home for the pair, she's making arrangements as we speak. She'll wait and see what the rest of the family members say. :fingerscr :fingerscr

:crazy: will keep all paws X ! :fingerscr

April 15th, 2007, 09:09 AM
We've had lots of response to these two already. I think Prin's great photos have helped tremendously. Prin and her man will have them for about two weeks as they need to be fully evaluated in a home environment and Pablo needs to recover from his neutering. So Prin will have plenty of "newf time"! The interesting part is that all who have inquired wish the two to remain together, something that we would like as well. So over the next two weeks applications will be reviewed, references done, home visits conducted etc... of course, one of the requirements is updates and photos! :D

April 15th, 2007, 09:28 AM
OMG thay are soooooo sweet:lovestruck: look at those loving smootchie faces!!
It's amazing that no matter how bad they are treated they are still full of love and hope! :cloud9:

I cant wait to see the after pics (not just the new haircuts) but the introduction to Jemma and Boo! Are they getting used to this foster thing yet? :D

April 15th, 2007, 12:02 PM
Yey! There's a lot of demand already for these two! What lucky beasties! :cloud9: They deserve the best family out there. :highfive: (But for those interested, don't hesitate to try just in case you're the one. :))

April 15th, 2007, 01:57 PM
It would be great to get them in a home that wants them the way prin let Mr. Prin know that he's a great guy...he's a keeper.

April 15th, 2007, 05:11 PM
Great news that there's been lots of interest in them already.....especially homes wanting to keep them together. :highfive:

April 15th, 2007, 05:32 PM
wow i don't check this thread for two short days and look what happens, LOL! it's all fantastic news, and I :fingerscr everything goes well with the fostering! watch out that jemma doesn't accidentally become sammich material between all those huge bears, he he :D can't wait to see them both all groomed and smelling nice... three cheers for Prin and her man! wooo! :highfive:

April 15th, 2007, 06:00 PM
I still can't wait till they get here... I hope Boo's a good boy to them..:fingerscr :fingerscr

April 15th, 2007, 06:46 PM
Aww what cuties. I want to hug them too. They just look so adorable. I'm sure they will find their forever home really quickly. :thumbs up

April 15th, 2007, 06:55 PM
WOw, such great news:thumbs up Prin, I can't wait until you get them so we can see some new pics. You must be sooooooooooo exicted:D (It really doesn't show in your writing;) :laughing:)

Again all you guys are the bestest:highfive:

April 15th, 2007, 09:24 PM
I have a close friend who had at one time 3 Newfies and now is down to one - and has the credentials to prove his relationship to the original Newfoundland dog (My guess is they all must be related to the first one somehow. :) ) But yes, they are indeed gentle and kind giants. Lovely dogs -wonderful with children (I know that seems like a saying but with Newfs, it is sooooo true! I have yet to meet or hear of one who ever attacked a child!)

They do have long hair and need lots if baths but then, they are made for the rugged East Coast. I can't say enough good about this breed. Wonderful dogs and these look cute as well!

April 15th, 2007, 09:46 PM
It's going to be nice to see some more pics of the beautiful beasties.and to hear that they finally get there forever home from one of the interested.
