Arrival Story:
Clyde was rescued by Newf Friends Newfoundland Rescue, part of HART Ontario. He was basically left in the backyard, for his whole life, all winter, but thank goodness the previous owners provided him with a warmed water bowl...who cared about him being cold, the water stayed warm...he was so matted that his Newfie coat had to be buzzed off, so he looks like a Mastiff right now. He needed 4 baths after rescue to remove the crud stuck to him. What nice people who had him, I'd really like to meet them someday.

Clyde has a few issues, his espohagus is open all the time, which causes him to barf often, but not always. He came to me with an infection, his lungs have aspiration pnuemonia, and he high-steps his back feet when walking, due to some kind of neurological damage. But that does not hurt him at all, he just can't feel his back toes, so walks funny. He is being treated for his infection/lungs, and I am so hoping he fully recovers. Other than that, he is a great dog, his personality is coming through, he is learning what love is, and even showing love. He is quite amusing!! A really nice old fellow. SAD UPDATE: We sadly had to let Clyde go, July 28th 2009. Clyde had neurological damage, which caused him to be very aggressive. Clyde bit 2 people with damage, one old man had 15 stitches, for no reason. When Clyde bit me too, I knew it would get worse, me and the rescue had a meeting and we tried to think of every way we could save him. There was only one answer, he was put to sleep. We do NOT BLAME CLYDE in the slightest. This was not his fault. He went to sleep peacefully, outside on grass where he liked to be. We will always love him and we miss him a lot. We are so hurt that this all happened. He was a great boy, and could not help himself. Please wait for us Clyde, we love you and are so sorry this happened. We never regretted having you, ever.
