I have never met this dog but I found him on petfinder--he was in a shelter in the midwest and all of the dogs were being kept outdoors due to the shelter having a fire. I used the HRI website to alert them to this dog and I even talked to the people at the shelter to get more information about him so I could fill out the HRI form to the best of my knowledge. Well, he ended up being rescued and put into foster care through HRI. For some reason, he has a special place in my heart. He sounded like a really good dog who somehow ended up in the shelter.
I have been checking on his status. He only has one photo of him and it is kindof blurry (the original photo is from the shelter). I was hoping that an update with more photos would be posted but it never happened. Well, now I see he has an adoption pending and I am just thrilled. It would be awesome if the new parent(s) of Porter would post an update. I am really curious to know how he has been doing. He is a cutie pie!
Anyway, I am just thrilled for him. And very very grateful for the foster family who opened their home to him because the outdoor shelter sounded really rough. It was not their fault--the shelter burned down. It sounds like he really thrived in foster care.
I lurk on petfinder and it is dangerous for somebody with a soft heart like me LOL. I am hoping some day to 'get more involved' in some capacity with rescue. I am not sure I would make a good foster mom because I would probably have a hard time surrendering any foster to their new forever home. I commend foster parents and those involved in rescue!
