Wanda Newfoundland Dog North Branch, MN
- Extra Large
- Coat length
- Vaccinations up to date, spayed / neutered, special needs. Wanda has some anxiety issues. When she has a regular, stable, continuous daily routine she does great. She does not present as a dog that would be appropriate for for outings, and unnecessary trips would be likely to cause distress and trigger her anxiety (no dog parks, breweries, etc). Walks around the neighborhood would be fine. She's looking for a family that enjoys hanging out around the house and petting her. She will also need a fenced yard, and no small children in the home.
- Good in a home with
- Other dogs, cats, children.
Wanda (8YO) is one of six dogs that came to us from North Dakota in 2019. Previous to rescue, she was kept outside with minimal shelter. She will need a patient family that understands that she is not a typical house-dog, although she very much would like to be. She is very sweet - she enjoys attention and getting treats! Her favorites include dried beef lung and pumpkin biscuits! She also enjoys cuddling stuffed animals and curling up in her fluffy blankets.
The Perfect Home for Wanda...
Priority placement for Wanda will go to a family having no children, or having children aged 10+. These children should be big-dog savvy. They should also have a secure, physical barrier fence, at least four feet tall. Her adoptive family should be willing to use a crate for her during her transition period, as she is NOT reliably house-trained (she lived entirely outdoors for the first seven years of her life). Wanda has done well with other dogs in her foster home, but is not interested in playtime. Wanda is interested in cats, but is not currently inclined to chase them.
Preference will be given to families who have carpeted floors (or LOTS of rugs) and few stairs. Additionally, while we accept applications from all over the country, we will be putting the most focus on applicants within 2 hours of the Minneapolis/St. Paul area (Wanda will be requiring an in-person home visit).
Adoption fees vary depending on the dog, but range from $300-$600.
