Jager — ADOPTED!

jagerJager is the Newfoundland that Rosie was running with. She was covered with mats all over her body when she arrived. The two girls were so happy to be reunited! We planned to have her spayed almost immediately, but upon our vet’s evaluation of her, there were multiple concerns. Her white blood cell count was elevated, and the hematocrit is low. She is also anemic. When listening to her heart, he could hear a slight murmur and also some muffling sounds which could be coming from her lungs. He did a chest x-ray and could see a “bulge” near her heart. The trachea is normally straight and there is a curve to hers. He also took an x-ray of her abdomen and her abdomen looked similar to Rosie’s, where there might have been some free fluid. After a consultation with the cardiologist, we found out that Jager is fine! What they were seeing on the x-rays is her aorta. It is larger and wraps around the bottom of her heart a bit, which is apparently semi-common in Newfoundlands. Jager is in good health and she is cleared to undergo anesthesia, so we will move forward with having her spayed and simultaneous entropian surgery on her lower lids.

UjagersnewfamilyPDATE: Jager was adopted at the end of August by a wonderful couple. They actually adopted the newfie in the picture from us 3 years ago. Her name is Joplin. They were looking for a buddy for her and the two girls just seemed to do very well together. I have received daily updates and Jager has settled into her new home quite easily.

    I haven’t made it far into your website. I am wondering where you are located. We miss our Newfie who passed a little over two years ago from cancer. We now have a 2 year old Keeshond who loves playing with other dogs (we take her to daycare once a week just so she can have a good ole doggie fix). She is very submissive and we are thinking that she would love a gentle companion. Her best friend at the kennel is a Great Dane, though they say they can put her in with just about anyone. She’s always good for some fun. We’d love to find a large breed dog who loves to play and just hang out and who doesn’t mind sharing whether that is love, toys or food. Do you know how old Jager is? From experience we know that our time with a large breed dog is short and I want to be sure we aren’t getting an older dog that we have to say good-bye to in the near future. I’m not quite ready for that. Please let me know!

    HI! I have inquired with you before. I would like to know if Jager is up for adoption. We have the space, the features for a big dog…ie…fenced in area and lots of land. We have had Newfies before and would love to adopt one that needs a hone rather than get another one through any type of breeder.

    • Noreen says:

      She has been adopted, but thank you for your interest! However, we do have other Newfoundlands available. Please contact us if you are interested in any of our other dogs.

    I was wondering the approximate age of Jager the black Newfie please. Thank you.

  6. Kristin Wilkinson says:

    Is she housebroken? Good with kids? We have an 11 & 13 year old.
    Our last fabulous dog was an old English sheepdog.
    Our other dog was a South Russian Ovcharka. We clearly love the big dogs!
    I spent two years participating in the Train the Trainer program at the Pagosa Springs Humane Society and my husband has a rather uncanny connection with animals. What else have you learned about her so far?
    Thanks, Kristin

    Are Jager or Zoey still available for adoption? I’m having a difficult time downloading the application. Thanks, Elayne Newcomb

    We have a 2 year old leonberger and are looking for a another family member. We recently had our rescue huskie/shepherd mix pass away after a fight with cancer and we are now ready to adopt again. However, we really do want a younger giant breed (2 years or less) since we have such a short time with them. Please let us know if you have any options for us. We of course would have vet and family references, and are willing to do whatever we need to do.

    Hi! I am interested in learning more about Jager and if she is still up for adoption. We lost our Newfy 2 years ago and are looking for a young adult Newfy to complete our family. Thank you! Kate
