Octavia is a 4yo Newfoundland Lab X. She lives with her foster moms.


Octavia is house trained and crate trained -- she will whine occasionally as she settles in, but mostly just likes to relax! Every so often, she gets a little bit upset if she's being left out of fun activities while she's in her crate, but knows that it's her safe space for sleeping.

Octavia gets along well with other dogs - like all dogs, she needs proper introductions and a human who will advocate for her space, but does like to make canine pals! She walks very well on leash and will only try to chase squirrels the odd time. As long as she knows the rules, Octavia is a great strolling partner! She will benefit from continues training; she's a smart and naturally well-behaved girl that will thrive with continued guidance to perfect her general obedience.

Octavia loves humans and is always down for a cuddle session with her favourite people. She has met a few kids while with her foster home and enjoys their company, too. Car rides? No problem for this girl! She loves hitting the open road, even if the drive is hours long!

Here's what Octavia's foster mom has to say about her:

"Octavia is the sweetest and most loving dog... anyone would be very lucky to have her! Everyone she has met in her time with us loves her and she has been the most amazing dog to foster. Octavia loves attention and affection; her favourite is laying on her back with all paws in the air getting belly scratches. She loves to be close by always and will stick to your side when visiting new places - she is definitely happiest when she knows someone is around and is most content to just sleep on the floor nearby. Her furever humans should continue working on building her confidence and independence. She is such an amazing and loving dog, she would be the perfect addition to any home."
