    Hey

    I was just wondering if anyone can advise me on how to go about this process. Its something I have thought about for a while. What do the people look for in a fosterer. I have two dogs already both females. One is 13 and the other is nearly two. I have hac alot of experience around dogs from having them while growing up and also looking after friends dogs and working in boarding kennels. I also work in part time employment.

    any advice woulc b great thanx

    Are you thinking about fostering for a rescue?

    I know many rescues.... :)

    I would first ask the landlord to see how many dogs are allowed in the flat... and then go from there. :)

    All rescues are different.... So it is better contacting them to see what criteria they have.

    things that they will all ask are:
    How long will the dog be left on its own for throughout the day?
    How much walks/ exercise will it get....?

    How are you current animals like with other dogs...?

    Ye I thought the same.... Got my home checkf or GSD rescue Scotland and passed it. Then i got my 18 year old cat.... Think an unknown dog in the house would be to much for her.... So no foster dog for me! :(
