Minnesota Newfoundland Rescue



Our Dogs

See the dogs currently in our care by browsing below.

Not all dogs are currently available for adoption, but each profile will list their current status.

Brody

Brody (1.5YO) came to us due to changes in his first home's lifestyle. He is a 90lb, funny, exuberant, rambunctious adolescent that is still learning appropriate interactions and behaviors for living in a household. He is extremely sweet, and does enjoy attention from people, although long cuddle sessions are still a bit much for his age (we are quite sure he will grow into that kind of affection though).

He has had surgery for cherry eye and the remaining eye discoloration is cosmetic and causes no physical impairments. For more information on cherry eye see Cherry Eye In Dogs

The Perfect Home for Brody...

Brody is seeking a family with a physical barrier fence, who is willing to participate in Minnesota Newfoundland Rescue approved training classes or private sessions (we have online-only recommendations available as well). His small size (app 90lbs) would make him a great fit for someone who might eventually want to go on outdoor camping and hiking adventures (after some training). Additionally, his potential family should not have any children under the age of 10 (nor should they have frequent young visitors). Any dogs in the home should be adults (2+), but not seniors, and we highly discourage people with small dogs from applying as Brody is very bouncy and will probably squish them.

Phoenix

Phoenix (5YO) is a slobby goof who, prior to coming to rescue, lived outdoors at a breeding kennel in North Dakota. He has adjusted well to indoor living, and while he does like some romping outside, he hustles to get back in the house as soon as possible. He loves treats of almost any kind, affection from people he knows, and thrives on routine.

The Perfect Home for Phoenix...

Phoenix's home will require physical barrier fence (observations of him tell us that he just feels more confident with the visual barrier that a fence as there is no question as to boundaries). An invisible, or otherwise electric fence system, is NOT acceptable. He has had some mistreatment in the past and adopters should be aware that he will need a non-confrontational home that allows him to move at his own pace. A calm home with a steady routine is preferred. He does have experience being left home alone for up to 8 hours while crated (54") or confined to an indoor kennel (5'x5'). He is not a dog that will enjoy taking day trips - he prefers to stay home. We are seeking a home for him without children - he startles easily and his confidence levels in situations he is unfamiliar with still vary greatly. He does well with other dogs (including some interactive play with other dogs of similar age), and seems to mostly ignore the cats in his foster home. He will require that his adopters have a confident adult dog, aged 2+, already established in the home. There should not be any puppies in the home.

Applicants for Phoenix will be required to be within distance of an in-person home visit, which is generally within 2 hours of the Minneapolis/St. Paul area.

Wanda

Wanda (9YO) is a sweet older lady who, prior to coming to rescue, lived outdoors at a breeding kennel in North Dakota. After some hiccups, she has adjusted well to indoor living and now much prefers it to being outdoors. She loves chewing on knuckle bones, devouring tasty rawhide treats, and goes bonkers at lunch time!
