It’s that time again! Foster dog 2.0 has entered our lives.
Maybe she’s even 2.1. We had committed to a different dog, a dog I was extremely eager to take on. But over the weeks leading up to her transport it became clear that she was too aggressive to be transported and put in a foster home at this time. We are sad we couldn’t give her a new life with a pit stop at our place, but we are also grateful to our rescue for making sure our dogs and home stays safe.
The rescue owner, when telling me that the dog we committed to could not come, offered us Laynie, a young mom with a litter of pups also coming in to rescue.
Laynie is just over 30 pounds, and the rescue has her listed as a mountain cur mix. I think this is a pretty accurate guess. Her babies are old enough for adoption, but we found out that she is heartworm positive. So, she needs to stay with us long enough to get her through heartworm treatment and a spay.
Thankfully, she hasn’t had the treatment yet which means we can go out and go for walks and stuff.
It’s hot here, so she hides behind the couch to stay cool after we go for walks.
We are very glad to be able to provide her a spot between her before life and her forever home. Sadly, one of Laynie’s babies has now passed away due to parvo, and another baby fights for her life. I hope for the best for them, but fear the worst. The rescue is busy right now, while our family has the easy job of just caring for mom.
And really, she is a pretty girl!
