Carousel Havanese HRI Sneak Peek No. 5

Meet Little Einstein. Check out this week's sneak peek for the HRI Quilt Project...you can win one of three quilts. This week's ad has three of the carousel havanese, standing and rearing that make up the outer edges of the 2009 HRI Quilt. Next week we are featuring another dog and the Hav forum Quilt.

Thank you for supporting rescue! Puppy licks and kisses. Isn't Einstein adorable!

Thank goodness Mirabel is home. The entire HRI organization is breathing a big sigh of relief!

Will you be the winner?

I didn't just get havanese, I got a lifestyle!

Thank you new Forum Foster Moms

Several of you have joined us and have become foster moms. I'd love to hear your stories when you get a little one to foster. These stories are often so heart-warming...these guys seem to have amazing resilience in the right home.

Here is the blurb from HRI about what fostering is all about:

Fostering

This aspect of volunteering always seems to be a bit intimidating to people, though it’s not nearly as hard as you might think. First, you need to evaluate your family situation to determine if you can foster. If you have very young children, a demanding job, other pets with medical or behavioral issues, older parents in the home who require a lot of care, or if everyone in the family is not “on board” with being a foster family, fostering may not be right for you. Maybe you can’t foster, but we’d love it if you’d consider sharing some of your other talents. If your family situation seems right, please keep on reading about being a foster family!

Every foster dog is at a disadvantage initially because they have either been turned in for some medical or behavioral issue, or they have just plain “lost” their family due to some unforeseen circumstance. In all of these cases, the dog may be scared or anxious because of the change in family. Whether the dog is an Owner Turn In (OTI), or comes from a shelter, you should be able to have some space you can block off just for the foster dog until you see how they interact with your other dogs/pets. If they come from a shelter you may also need to quarantine the dog. Our policy and procedure manual provides more information about what is entailed in quarantining a dog and how to protect your family and pets.

Your job as a foster parent is to work with the dog to accomplish several things. First, correct any behavioral issues (i.e., housebreak the dog, work on them being grabby with food, or help socialize them). Some dogs also need you to support them through medical issues which could include surgical care for an injury, neutering/spaying, and would require post-operative care and follow-up. All dogs need their foster parent to observe them to help determine what their ideal family would be. Working on basic manners/training helps the foster dog feel as confident and secure as it can. Many of these dogs just need a consistent home with consistent rules, and they become very good dogs very quickly. There is always someone to talk with you about questions or concerns or to brainstorm if you’ve run into a stumbling block somewhere along the way.

HRI is quite careful about the foster home placements it makes. That means that we will not knowingly place a foster dog with you that would not be appropriate for your family.
We want both you and the dog to succeed at the fostering relationship. HRI respects each family’s need for discretion. Even if you have committed to being a foster parent for a dog in need, if the time or situation is not right when you’re called, you can say “No.”

While it is sad to see your foster dog go to its “forever family,” it is incredibly rewarding when you know your foster dog found the right family because of your time and effort. There is little that is more rewarding than hearing from a family about how much they cherish their newest family member.

Give fostering a try! It is incredibly rewarding and changes lives, one Havanese at a time!

be sure to check out thread: A new plea

There you will find some stories of those already experiencing this wonderful opportunity to give back to our dogs. What heroes...but from what I hear, it is often the dogs that save us!

If, like me, you cannot foster, there are so many other opportunities available for those who have time to give...and there is so much need. I've been able to help work on the quilt committee and do the advertising. This has been so wonderful because I am meeting so many great people through the internet as well as actually meeting some of you HRI folks in person. I love it how the dogs all get along so well.

The forum seems to start and end my day. My daughter and I love the photos, and the videos of the puppies are the very best.
