Newfie rescue contacts? Dog needs "out" by Friday

Long story short (excuse typos and punctuation, posting from my phone) lady "rescued dog from owner who provided her with nothing but a handwritten receipt saying she was "adopting" the dog "as is" and needed medical care. This was a month ago. No history of vaccines, no idea if she is spayed, supposedly "AKC." 5 year old female.

New owner took to the vet and she is being treated for an ear infection and skin infection from being matted. She did not update her shots or check for a spay scar. New owner now is being evicted and has to move by Friday. No public shelter anywhere in our county. Out of county shelters only accept animals from within their own county.

She's supposed to be texting me a photo that is "not too good" shortly. Very time sensitive. If backed into a corner, she may do what so many others do around here and leave her loose or abandon her in the house.

Any suggestions, please let me know. Email address is shannon@straysave.com

UPDATE. The photos ARE crappy. She is brown - I did not know that they came in that color, but the AKC says they do Her fur looks terrible.

The dog is reportedly very friendly and not at all aggressive, but is fearful. It is apparent she likely wasn't exposed to anything in her 5 years of life. She is afraid of everyday household things like ceiling fans and cowers in fear if you raise your voice. She prefers outdoors, but is not destructive indoors.

Letting you all know that I email bombed last night. A newf rescue contacted me and then her and told her they would "try to find a direct placement" since she was not updated on her shots, therefore they couldn't take her into rescue.

The owner has found a friend who she says is very dog experienced with a large farm. I told her to pass along my contact info for whatever help he may need.

Did someone find a home for the brown Newf? I have only owned one brown Newf. Her puppies were all black. This was over 25 years ago. Love Newfs.
