Today my new foster dog arrives. I'll leave in a few minutes to go pick her up from the transport meet-up. The rescue I work with is bringing in the 8 month old feist mix that I'll be fostering along with a few other dogs including a litter of Lab-mix puppies.
For the past week or so, the rescue has been reaching out to the group for available fosters. However many people step up, is the number of dogs we can rescue. If we don't have the fosters, we can't take the dogs. :(
I haven't fostered in a few years because my last foster never left. She was a nervous-nellie and it took a long time to get her to relax and learn how to be a dog. (You can read that story here.) It's time to get back into it and help rescue all those dogs who languish and die in shelters.
This new foster is 8 months old so (hopefull!) she won't have many issues. The younger dogs usually get adopted fast, too.
I'll be back with more on Lexie the Foster soon!
