We had an exciting weekend – Gemma went to her new home and we got to visit Garth! I thought it would be a good time for a foster update… We have had an awesome 2014 with fosters so far and have gotten to keep in touch with the majority of our foster dogs’ families which has been awesome. The happy endings we’ve had so far this year are why we keep fostering.
Kringle, our first foster of the year, has been with his new family since mid January and is continuing to thrive. He loves his doggy brother and is gaining confidence by the day. Such a huge change from the puppy mill he used to live in!
It was amazing to see Garth. He unfortunately was very nervous about strangers in the shelter and when he was with us, but he was making progress when he left and we hoped he would continue to get more confident and comfortable… and he absolutely has. He loves “his” kids and plays with the cats, and his hair that was shaved from his amputation has all grown back. When we got to his house he barked at the fence for a minute, but as soon as he smelled us he starting wiggling all over and was SO excited to see us. It was amazing to see how happy he is in his new home.
Maggie settled right in with her two elderly doggie brothers, and her new parents have been ultra dedicated to making sure all three of them get along great and have a happy life in their senior years. One of her brothers looks just like a miniature version of her and it’s adorable.
And the beautiful miss Gemma is going to be loved beyond what we could have hoped for. Her new parents are so happy to have her and she is so lucky – she will live out the rest of her life in comfort and be so adored. She loves her new dog brother and he is thrilled to have a permanent playmate.
