Rescue Me ID: 15-05-17-00569Spartacus (male)

Newfoundland Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Spartacus is very friendly 3-year-old (01/13/2012) 75 lb Newfoundland and Labrador mix. Because he looks like a short Newfoundland, I call him a 'pygmy Newf.' He loves people and other dogs and has never met a stranger. He is completely at home around cats and is wonderful with children, even toddlers! Newfies are notorious couch potatoes and he will need to be exercised. He very much enjoys walks and is great on a leash. He's also a pro at the dog park! He can play fetch and catch (squeaky balls are a favorite), but watch out with tug-of-war: he cheats! Spartacus is a VERY talkative boy. He likes to use his voice to let me know when ... (Read More)someone is at the door, to greet new people and dogs, and to tell me that it is PLAY TIME. He lectures when you come home, especially if you are gone too long, and groans and rolls about when his belly is rubbed. He knows many commands. He can sit, lie down, get down/off, 'up' (stand up), 'come on up' (invitation to sit on furniture), get out, 'kitchen' (leave the kitchen), leave it, drop it, and go to bed. If he is feeling in the mood and you have a treat, he will 'come here.' He also self-taught a command called 'get the kitty,' in which he corrals his door-dasher brother back into the house. 'Stay' is a foreign concept, despite many attempts. He has no reverence whatsoever for 'quiet' or 'no bark' and his ideal owner would either be okay with it, or more persistent with training than I have been. He has never bitten, and will allow you to touch mouth, ears, and paws, though paws sometime elicit a a growl. He loves to be petted, give kisses, and play in the snow. He is completely housebroken, and is a dapper man who will wear a coat, rain slicker, and is never seen without a tie. He will need lots of grooming, especially during his spring coat-blow. I recommend a nice summer shave! There is no need to kennel this dog - he is not destructive in any way. Spartacus was a litter-abandonment that I took in at four weeks old. I love him dearly. Since then, I have gotten divorced and begun a new career that doesn't allow me to give him the attention he needs and deserves. Also, an international move is in the foreseeable future. It is breaking my heart to part with my beautiful boy, but it's in his best interests. His ideal home would be one where someone is home at least part of the day or gone no more than 8 hours. I believe he would love a young child or children to play with, or another dog, big or small - he's very gentle. He is very much an INSIDE dog and should not be kenneled up in a yard or put on a tie-out. This dog needs to be part of the family, whether that is one person, or many. He is neutered, microchipped, and up to date on all vet care. He comes with a bed, dentastix, 'cookies' (milkbones), toys, collar, ties, leashes, coat and rainslicker, food, bowls, tray, poopie bags, and kong. He is very, very loved. (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Newfoundland in North Carolina
    Newfoundland Dogs can make good pets in North Carolina 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.

lnteresting Newfoundland Trivia Low-Cost North Carolina Spay & Neuter Clinics
    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.
