Choosing to open your home and heart to a rescue dog in need can be one of the hardest and most rewarding things a person or family can do. While some dogs settle in quickly with their new lives and families, others take time, patience, and work to help them feel safe and loved.

Before submitting an adoption application, it’s important to step back and ask yourself what you’re looking for in a dog vs. what kind of dog would best fit into your lifestyle. You may find that those are two very different answers.

Our application process if very detailed and we will be performing the following checks before you can be approved to welcome a NNR dog into your home:

  • Vet Reference
  • Home Ownership Verification / Landlord Approval
  • Personal References
  • Home visit (may be done virtually or in person)
  • Evaluation of your home and lifestyle to determine if a Newfie is the right breed for you, and if it is, what age, personality, etc. would best fit with you and your family.
