New Foster: COMING SOON!

Well...I just got a call today.. looks as though they have a foster that needs a temporary home. This will be my first!

I was reading through the foster posts on here yesterday thinking that it had been a long time since I'd talked to my liaison and that I should give her a call.. then I was thinking that it's not a BAD thing if I don't have a foster..it means that there's no puppies in my area that need my help and that's good!

Not much info yet on the little guy..but I'll keep you posted and post LOTS of pictures when I pick him up!

How exciting! Are you at all nervous, since this is your first foster? When will you get him/her?

...not so nervous, really.. I just don't want to become attached to him! lol. I already have 2.. I wanted to foster so I could have a TEMPORARY 3rd every once and a while...lol.. but 3 is too many permanently..

I talked to my liaison today and she gave me some news about him. They haven't taken him from the family yet.. but here's what I know so far..

He's 9 months old.. he came from a rescue organization about 2 months ago and went to the family he's with now. ..and he may have come from a mill before that. She's not sure. She said that the puppy was brought in much to the chagrin of the father and it sounds like he's been yelling at the lil guy a lot because he's very skittish now around men and that because of that he may have been knocked around a bit. He didn't want a dog and now he's taking that out on the dog.

I'm not sure when I'll get him.. they still have to take possession of him and make sure he's not aggressive or anything..but I'll have a bit of work to do with him with men and with touching him because he's kinda scared of hands right now..

I'll keep you posted though! That's about all I know so far...

What a terribly sad story!! That poor little boy!
Mindy,I am sure you will do wonderful with him. Just give him some time to watch you and your pups. Dont expect much from him at first. Once he sees you for a few days and knows that you are not going to hurt him, he will come around.
Good luck and pm me if you have any questions. Although your "Nanny" will help you out..

oh my goodness. Bless the poor little guys heart.....and someone go smack the stupid fella upside the head. Taking it out on the poor pup....

I hope they can get him out of there quickly. Sounds like a really volatile situation and a major mishap just waiting to happen.

Poor little guy! I'm so glad you will have him at a fairly young age to try to help him recover and bloom.
