Which is why I am slowly weaning myself away, I am ready to focus on Joans. I've fostered a total of 45 puppies in the last 2-years none of them over the age of 8 weeks, most puppies having to be bottle fed. Many of them spending countless hours in a vets office for test, and/or surgeries. I've had my share after 2-years, I loved them all but it is time to move on.

Aww, they're so SWEET!

Can we share our own fosters in this thread? I've only had one but I don't get to talk about her on Chaz often (well, one dog. I've fostered many cats/kittens though).

Meet Rosie. Her dad was in the Army Reserves and was deployed to Afghanistan on very short notice and prior arrangements he'd made to care for her fell through. I had her for just under two weeks before she went to her new home. She was a complete doll and if we'd been in the position to have a dog of our own we would have kept her. (But then of course, we wouldn't have Sierra, so everything happens for a reason!)





Wearing the collar her 'dad' made her from his fatigues.

Oh my gosh! They're gorgeous and you did a great job getting those healthy enough to good families! Your Samson looks a bit like FZC's Gage I'm in love with Dappled Doxies

your babies are all sooo cute.

ive had 4 fosters...1 of which turned perminent lol

1 boxer "hooch" he was insane, we had him for 6 months but he was way too much for our elderly cocker and needed room to run, managed to pull him from a high kill though

1 great dane: Skye, a yougn death boy i had for about a month, the chis hated him

then came ruby and gypsy, the cresties, gypsy found a great forever home, but ruby was returned to me after a week and came back severly changed, shed been badly abused during her short time away, she came back and was supposed to still be "just a foster" that was a yr and a half ago and now i have 2 cresties lol.

Here's a few of mine, just the ones I have pics of on this PC. I have many more, but their pics are on the laptop. I have more on this PC, but can't find their pics at the moment.

I had KeeKee, a 9 year old black lab. I fostered her for a year before she went to a great forever home.

Rover, a 4 year old bassett hound/standard dachshund mix. The weirdest, biggest dog I'd ever seen. He looked like a dachshund, but in a bassett hound body... and twice the size of a bassett hound. Awesome dog.

Here's a few that I have some pics of:

CC, 10 year old pug/dachshund mix, fostered for 2 weeks:



Dijon, 3 years old, fostered for 2 weeks. One of about 100 or so dachshunds that I have fostered in the last couple years.



Duke... not a dog I like to talk about much because it hurts. Duke's no longer with us in this world because of me. But he was a 1-2 year old shepherd mix, fostered for 2 months after being rescued by me. Found tied by wire under a FEMA trailer that was getting ready to be moved and demolished.



Fluffy 6 weeks old when I got him, fostered for 3 months while he underwent eye surgery, ringworm treatment and giardia treatment. Found abandoned under a house.



Jack, 8 week old beagle mix, fostered for 2 weeks.
