Thought I'd share with you some of the beautiful dogs that I've been lucky enough to foster over the last few years. These are the long termers who stayed for longer than a couple of days: Mutley : My first foster, the most sweet and loving dog. Would have kept this fella other than the home he was offered was with a wonderful couple who loved him beyond reason! Gypsy. Came from Ireland with Rats an oldie JRT who the oldie club rescued literally minutes before they both got the needle. Rats had been offered a home and Gypsy was his life long companion so she was saved too. On arrival we were told they couldn't be parted for a minute, turns out they didn't have much love for each other and while Rats continued his journey to his new home Gypsy stayed and was adopted by my neighbours (the same people who had Mutley!!) Rats the oldie JRT..what a character..giving Sidney a hard time!! Beautiful Mac. Oh I loved this boy. He went to a couple who were runners and I still get emails with updates and photos!! Jake: Now Jake was the one foster dog I honestly didn't want to keep!! Don't get me wrong a fab dog but MANIC as hell and never ever stopped!! Took him 4 months to find the right home but he went to a huge family with lots of kids and grandkids and is entertained from morning til night..cos boy he needed it!! (Piccy shows Jake even managed to wear out Sidney which takes some work!!) My special boy Bear: I loved him but he needed a home with people who would give him all their time and love, he coped with a large pack but really wanted one to one attention. Sadly he broke his leg while with me..cos my horse trod on him!!!hmy: But this didn't change his sweet and loving nature. He went to live with an older couple who had experience with Rotties. 'Duke' the one that stayed...and stayed...and stayed!!! This fabulous dog had been passed over for months in the kennels and spent 5 months at mine being fostered. When finally someone offered him a home, I broke down and said this one isn't going!! So Duke became Cooper and is still a much loved member of my pack!! (Well I have to keep one or two every once in a while!!!:001_tt2 This picture was his first day, he looks so scared and confused!! Not anymore!! I have since failed with Sumo too, a scruffy JRT who I should have rehomed but didn't..so there!!:001_tt2: Anyway the point of these photo's is to show anyone thinking of rescue...do it!! Look what has passed through my doors the last few years..and these are just a tiny percentage!! Most of the dogs don't stay long enough for me to take photo's!!
