Hello there!   They call me Newman and I am an approximately 2 year-old mix breed dog.  While we aren’t quite sure what kind of dog I am, everyone is 110% sure that I am adorable.  I am a very friendly and energetic young dog looking for a home of my own.  I do great with dogs and children but do need a home without cats.  I love to go for walks, but my favorite thing to do is cuddle and get belly rubs.  Is there room on your couch for me?


I was in high-kill shelter waiting for a family to save me and then one night the volunteers were very sad and wouldn’t look at me - until Speranza called and committed to get me out of there safe and sound!  I’ve been at Speranza waiting for my forever to begin since the beginning of 2017.

I am a very well mannered, but energetic young man. I am still young, so I am excitable and playful.  I am crate trained and walk well on a leash, once I get my initial excitement out of my system.  I am very food motivated and ready to learn how to make you happy!
