A note for a prospective NNR parents. I want to highly recommended NNR for anyone who’s considering adopting! The process went very smooth for my husband and myself and our advocate was behind us 110%! Be patient and remember your 1st choice may not happen due to the process but I promise your new “Newfie” is waiting patiently. The support after the adoption has been truly amazing from many involved and we really appreciate it. Please Adopt and support NNR in all ways possible. ~Benjamin's new Mom

Today we brought home our newest family member, Gracie, now Alexandra. She is everything we were told to expect and more. It takes hard work from caring dedicated people to help families through the difficult process of surrendering their dog. Find a foster family to help prepare this dog for a new family, take care of any medical or behavioral issues that the dog might have, and then find just the right family to love and care for the dog. Everyone I spoke with was looking out for the best interest of the dog and my family. I want to thank you all, Gracie is a wonderful sweetheart and we're so glad to have her as our baby. ~Thank you from Gracie's new family!

My husband and I had adopted 2 pups in the past from different shelters. During the process there was no interview, no questions about our family situation, nothing. I will say at first it seemed like a huge process to adopt Linus but I wouldn't change a thing. I appreciate the process, it means you care very much about each and every pup. It means that through this process the pup will benefit by the thorough household check and personal interview. It's important that if a pup, for whatever reason, needs to find a new home they find the right home. They deserve to find his/her furever loving family. ~From Linus' furever family

What’s so special about August?You’ve already met August, the one-year-old Newfoundland with a heart as big as his fluffy paws who went through bi-oblique dynamic proximal ulnar osteotomies (surgery on both forelegs to correct incongruity). But what else is so special about him? Auggie's post-surgery antics include adorable gopher moves that make him look like a giant-sized meerkat scanning the plains– instead of watching for predators though, he demands his human to hold and massage his paws while gazing lovingly in to his eyes 😂 total adoration received and given with Auggie, his whole world is his humans!This big furball is a mix of perfection and puppy chaos, typical of any one-year-old. His good boi days are on the rise, promising a major payoff for anyone lucky enough to adopt this sweetheart. Even on his wild "I'm still a puppy" days, Auggie remains the goofy, derpy delight that stole our hearts and keeps us laughing. And let's talk about his dreamworld – while some dogs run in their sleep, Auggie? He wags his tail in sheer joy. It's been a consistent, heartwarming occurrence since he arrived in foster care, a testament to his happiness at being safe and loved. His spirit is uninhibited joy and he believes every day is Auggie Day! So, potential adopters, get ready for the jackpot! August, the one-in-a-million goofy Newfie, is waiting to fill your life with tail-wagging dreams, Meerkat impressions and endless love. 🐾 Read about August’s long term needs, see more photos and apply to adopt Auggie here petlover.petstablished.com/pets/public/1787392?awo=National+Newfoundland+Rescue&widget=false ...
