ah, puppy breath at your house! What fun! He sure is a cutie, won't take long to find him a home.

It must be hard to give them up though when the pup gets adopted. I have had puppies boarded here a few times (one was a family of three cocker spaniel pups) and I really enjoy having them here, and thats only for a week or two. How long do you usually get them? Have you had a few or is this new for you? The group looks like a lot of fun and certianly a good cause.

Giving them up is tuff. Ralph was our first foster and he is now back in foster care. He is an exceptional dog and has a wonderful temperment. He knew many commands and learned very fast. He just didn't like our Cat. We tried for several months but no matter what, he just didn't like Lou. Too bad. He will make someone a great pet when he get a permanent home.
The group is great. They supply all the food, treats, crates, and anything you think you could use for training etc. If we take Andy to obedience they pay for the foster dog to attend as well. As far as time line there is none. You could end up with a dog for several years if you chose to do so. They don't put down any dog they don't have to. They also provide great care for the dogs.
I think the one thing that makes it easier to give them up is that they allow you a big role in where your foster dog goes. You get to interview over phone, then meet the prospective owners if you like, and decide if you feel your dog is a good fit. After all, the foster parents know the dog best. We also know that if we keep just one dog we no longer have space to foster another dog in need. So that is how we look at it and hopefully it will continue to work. This is first puppy so may be harder!
Heres Ralph and Andy after their morning walk with the fiancee!

Just thought you might like to know... "Ralph" has been renamed "Zen" and is in foster care with a GREAT foster mom. He's really good with her dog as well as my dogs (including my 7lb long haired mini dachshund). Anyone who would be interested in him or knowing more about him can contact me and I'll pass you the info. for his foster mom.
