Newfie Puppy

This same ad was on CL about a month ago. I wonder what's up? I emailed the person this time.


Free to good home--7 mo. Newfie puppy (Bethesda)

I am in medical school and have an adorable and sweet 7 month old Newfoundland puppy. I initially got him to keep me company since my husband is in the Army and stationed away but I have realized that I don't quite have the time for him with all of my studies and all of the travelling I have to do. He is completelty house trained (he can hold it from 5 am-5 pm) and is also crate trained (for sleeping at night or during the day). He loves all people and other dogs and shows absolutely no aggression. Despite him being a large breed dog he still likes to try to sit in my lap and loves to play tug of war. He is up-to-date on all of his shots and is a purebred puppy.
I will not always have consistent acess to email so please call me at 404-372-6978 if interested.

That she even knows that he can hold it for 12 hours straight bothers me. Not even Karma, who fasts before overseas travel, and is trained to hold it on planes and such, can hold it that long - we rely on layovers and potty breaks. She probably COULD hold it but I would never ASK her to. And certainly not a 7 month old puppy.

Please take him away from her

Hmm if that poor pup is crated 5 a.m. to 5 p.m. (a good assumption with her mentioning being in school and so forth) and then crated at night to sleep, the poor things in that crate a great percentage of it's day. How in the heck can that pup develop proper muscle structure to support it's fast growing big body if it's kept confined so much of the time? Poor pup.
I like my dogs more than I like most people!

I recommended contacting Newfoundland rescue, which I'm hoping she'll do. I could pick him up and keep him for a day or so, but that's about it. We put our house on the market last week, so I really can't bring home another dog.

That poor puppy. I hope she will consider rescue. Especially since he's "free". If not I'd scoop him up and get him into rescue on the sly!
