    Our gorgeous guy Giovanni is doing GREAT! He's becoming increasingly relaxed and comfortable with Ray and Kelly, and we just LOVE seeing Gio's smile! Gio is used to living in a home. He's house trained and crate trained, and gets along with just about everyone - other dogs, children, and even kitties! He is cautious of men when he first meets them. He bonded with Kelly quickly, and is feeling more safe and secure with Ray with each passing day. After only about two weeks he is comfortable giving Ray kisses and rolling over for a good belly scratch. YAY GIO! Clearly from these pictures he is enjoying himself - both relaxing indoors, and ...

He saw our vet recently, who evaluated the condition and recommended that it be treated medically with periodic re-evaluations. He is taking anti-inflammatory medication, as well as a glucosamine supplement and is doing well with that medical support. That being said, Gio still needs exercise and our vet feels that with a moderate increase in exercise and resulting better muscle tone, his ease of movement may improve considerably. Gio is a big guy :) He is learning to walk nicely on a leash and getting a brush up course in good doggy manners. He'll need a little more time to relax in his foster home before we finalize an adoption. However, we are currently accepting adoption applications for Gio. (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Newfoundland in Connecticut
    Newfoundland Dogs can make good pets in Connecticut if they match your IifestyIe. The Newfoundland, or Newf, is a big dog with a bear-like appearance. Newfoundland dogs are remarkably sweet, gentle, and devoted. Newfs are absolutely wonderful with children. Newfoundlands need to be with their people. This intelligent breed is protective and intuitive. Newfoundlands have been known to rescue people from danger, especially from drowning. Newfoundlands can live in an apartment or in a home with a small yard. Newfs need to be protected from hot temperatures.

    Newfoundlands love to swim and actually have webbed feet! There was once a Newfoundland that weighed 260 pounds. Newfoundlands have often rescued drowning people by swimming to them and pulling them out of the water. The artist Sir Edwin Landseer often painted Newfoundlands and one color variation of the breed is now called Landseer.
