The Perfect Foster to Adoption! 8-20-22
I took both dogs to Patriots For Pets today at 11:00 for a meet and greet. There were so many people there with appointments to meet specific dogs. Good thing I took both dogs because I misunderstood which dog the couple was interested in.
I thought they wanted the brindle dog but they fell in love with the black puppy. Meet Sydney and Ashton with their new puppy yet to be named.
These college kids live in Ames and go to school at ISU and DMAC. I can tell this foster puppy, Blackie as we called him, will have a wonderful life with them. I’ve never worked with either puppy on a leash but Ashton wants to run with Blackie so they’ll be training him for that fun activity.
It was not hard to let Blackie go today – I have no qualms about his care with Sydney and Ashton. In fact I know he’ll have a wonderful life.
The parking lot was full of prospective families waiting to meet their new dogs. Everybody was so happy except those who didn’t bring their dog or their dog’s vet records – both of which are required. All the dogs at Patriots For Pets are listed on a national register so adoptive families could be from anywhere.
People ask me how I can give them up? How can I not? Look how happy these two kids are with their new puppy! After these two guys are both adopted I’ll be looking for another foster to bring home. Foster homes are needed everywhere – with this success story, aren’t you maybe tempted to try fostering? I told Sydney and Ashton that all of my readers know these two puppies from the blog.
A few more puppy pictures for Ashton and Sydney to see!
Congratulations, Ashton and Sydney, on your new puppy!
