All about Miya
This adorable love bug is sweet as can be, loves people and is friendly and social.  She has nice house manners and gets along nicely with well mannered dogs (we are told she prefers the company of males, and we have not tested her with any females.)

Miya, along with her brother Chevy, arrived in our care after the death of their owner.  We are currently working with our vet team to help get Miya healthy and ready for adoption.

She is spayed and current on vaccines.  Maya has an old knee injury that has been left untreated and can no longer be repaired, so pain meds and joint supplements, along with some weight loss and muscle building, will go a long way for Miya.

Bloodwork results show some concerns; an ultrasound is pending.

To be considered for adopting a dog through Newf Friends please submit a completed application, which can be found on the CONTACT US/FORMS page. Before completing an application or emailing us with questions, please review our FAQ page.  As outlined on our FAQ page, applicants who do not meet our adoption requirements (ie. no fenced play area, living in an apartment building, having young children, etc.) will not be considered -- please do not email us asking us to make an exception.
