We would like to introduce you to Newt, our newcomer. Newt has found
himself in search of a new loving, furever family as his human passed
away and no family members were in a position to keep him. I guess
you could call him an orphan, of sorts. He is 4 years young and is
coping well with this huge disruption in his life.

Newt is a sweet, submissive little (5.6 lbs) dog who loves to be in the company of his people. Newt would love if his human(s) works from home or is retired so that he is not alone for long stretches of time and has the company that he so enjoys. He likes adults, children, other dogs, and his toys! Newt likes to be active, which means lots of playtime, being included as a family member and participating in family activities, and frequent walks will be a must, although true to chi form, Newt doesn’t love winter weather!

Newt’s housetraining is a work in progress. This is through no fault of his own. His former human kept him in a doggie diaper during the day so Newt did not have the opportunity to master this basic doggie deed. He now has the opportunity and will learn. He is happy to do his business outside if taken out regularly and has used a pee pad (successfully) a few times since his training has begun. He must be taken outside regularly to ensure his success or he will go in the house, thus the pee pad training.

Newt has recently been neutered, brought up to date with his shots, been microchipped and had a dental, where one molar was removed. He may have an old injury to his leg as it was mentioned during his surrender. He sometimes appears to be not wanting to put weight on his left leg but this is occasional so we have not determined if this is the old injury that was referred to. The vet noted his patellas to be fine. Newt has a grade 3 heart murmur but is asymptomatic at this time and no medication is required.

If you are interested in adopting Newt, please fill out an adoption application.

You can also purchase a sweater and/or blanket for her or any of our foster dogs.

Please consider becoming a CCRT Sponsorship Angel for any of our fosters by making a cash donation towards their care.
