What's stopping you from taking her to the vet to get an xray?

I'd get her checked and wormed. I've seen animals that I would have sworn were pregnant, except that they were undergoing worming.

The shelter should get her spayed before she goes to a foster home. I'm confident they probably vet checked her, since they had to make sure she was UTD on rabies at least before leaving the shelter, but it could've been a quick check up and they may not have noticed anything that day. I'd check with the shelter to see if she has been dewormed, and to see if she's been spayed; if not, I'd schedule that ASAP.

I'd have to think looong and hard about fostering for a group that does not vet check their dogs before sending to foster. Your dogs are really at risk if this is the case, despite vaccine status, because not all parasites are covered by heartworm prevention and vaccines aren't 100%, though they are close.

In the future, you may want to take any fosters to your vet for a once over and vaccines before bringing them home and then quarantine them for at least 10 days to ensure that they aren't bringing any nasties into the house.

Here's hoping that she isn't preggers on top of everything else!

Very good post. I quarantine all fosters before a vet visit.

I was going to say the same. I know you really want to foster, but I just don't think it is worth it if the dogs aren't going to be vetted and quarantined. It could be very dangerous for Ruckus and Lynn.
