My Story

Date into Rescue: 4/15/2022

Reason for being in rescue: breeder release

Special Needs: Amelia arrived in rescue with a congenital heart abnormality (Patent Duct Arteriosus). She underwent major heart surgery and has done very well since. She is still restricted to limited activity. Amelia also has mild sub-aortic stenosis, which is common in newfies. She will need rechecks with the cardiologist. Adopting Amelia is a commitment to continuing her care with her cardiology team at University of Georgia at Athens Veterinary Teaching Hospital.

What kind of home would be best for me: Amelia would do best in a home of experienced giant dog breed owners with a large yard where she can run and play and has other dogs to keep her company. She would also do best in a home without small children because of her size and because she can get mouthy (in a playful way) when she is excited. 

What is my personality like: Meet adoptable Amelia, the biggest and fluffiest lovebug. Amelia is a 7-month-old female Newfoundland who came to CPR earlier this year with a congenital heart abnormality (Patent Ductus Arteriosus). She is one tough cookie who would never let on that her heart was imperfect. In June, Amelia underwent a major heart surgery and has done great since then. She is still restricted to limited activity but is feeling like a brand-new dog! Amelia also has mild sub-aortic stenosis (common in newfies) and will likely need occasional rechecks with the cardiologist but should continue to live a long and happy life.

Amelia is as loving as they come. She wants nothing more than to be as close to you as possible and will snuggle her head on your lap any chance she can get. She loves water (and will try to join you in the shower if you let her), chasing bugs, and watching birds out the window. She can be a bit stubborn but is great on a leash, is potty trained, crate trained, and has quite a few tricks up her sleeve! 

Amelia absolutely loves other dogs of all sizes and is great at getting on smaller dogs’ level as to not intimidate them. She has had a couple interactions with cats in which she has shown zero aggression but would likely need training on boundaries as she is a puppy who is always looking to play. She loves everyone she meets and is not timid or shy around strangers.

Amelia loves all toys, is great about keeping herself entertained, and has some of the best clumsy giant puppy zoomies. In true Newfie fashion, Amelia plays hard but also sleeps hard. She is the best napping buddy and is content to just have a lazy day at home.

Amelia is truly one of the most loving dogs. She is intelligent, wants to please, and has the puppy dog eyes mastered. Someone will be very lucky to love and be loved by Amelia. Her heart may once have been imperfect, but it is a heart of gold nonetheless.

How do I act when I first meet new people: Friendly

Tips and Tidbits: Amelia's birthday is 1/1/2022

House trained: Dogs can be house trained if they are in the right environment and are allowed to follow a schedule as long as a physical reason doesn't keep them from being trained.  A dog house trained in my home may not be in yours. We will help you teach your new dog this necessary skill and based on your schedule.

Potential Adopters

Please note - we do not ship or transport our dogs. If you are interested in adopting a dog, take a look at the distance between the dog's location and your location and make sure you are able to make the trip.

Thank you for your interest in a dog who needs a new home. This description contains all that we currently know about this dog. We have no perfect dogs - but many of our dogs have proven to be perfect for a certain someone. We urge all of our potential adopters not to fall in love with a picture. When screening applications, we look at the entire home and then make suggestions based on what would be a good fit for your home. You are not being screened for a specific dog although we are looking to see what type of dog interests you - poodles or non poodles, age, temperament, personality, etc. Our goal is to match you with the best possible pet for you and your home. We want to create furever families.

Thank you for considering CPR!
