PLEA FROM THE DAUGHTER OF DECEASED OWNER! Newlie was found as puppy trying to follow a pack of dogs across a busy highway. My Dad once again gave this guy a home. He arrived at my Dad’s house in May of 2007. He was just a tiny, tiny puppy maybe 8 weeks old or so. He used to sleep in a little basket at night next to my Dad’s bed. Newlie has been a healthy and happy dog. However, he is the one that has really grieved with my Dad being gone. While working at my Dad’s house for the first few months, I was there every day and would find Newlie sleeping on my Dad’s bed. His personality has changed a bit and he become even more shy. He has never been very demonstrative. Just happy to be with my Dad in the house. My Dad used to say he was very shy when he would take him for walks and when another person or dog approached he would try and hide behind my Dad. When he was taken to the vet he would hide under the chair and shake. Since my Dad has passed I have tried to socialize him more by bringing people around to meet him, at first he would just shake and bark, but fast forward some months and he is doing much better and just let himself be petted and wags his tail. He does not seek out to be petted as Victor does…except with me, he goes nuts when he sees me bouncing around and running and making roo…roo….sounds.
Newlie is about 6 years old, neutered, micro chipped and vaccinated and weighs approximately 85 pounds. He is very shy and any new surroundings he starts shaking, car rides or the vets office. He does okay on a leash, but tried and hides behind ones legs while walking. He too things cats are for chasing so no cats. He probably would best as an only dog, as he will have to have someone willing to give him lots of attention and love and be patience with him adjusting to a new home. He used to also sleep on my Dad’s bed. He is house trained and knows how to use a doggie door. I cannot tell you what a love he is but he has to get used to someone. I currently have someone staying at my Dad’s house and the first couple of weeks, Newlie would just stand and bark at him and then run out the doggie door. Fast forward a couple of months, now Newlie sleeps along side of the bed where he sleeps. So he does adjust, just takes him awhile. The new surrounding will be take some time and patience with the human, but he is so deserving of a forever wonderful home…he is a love.
