    General Dog Discussion
    Zeus is our in house Cookie Monster, always ready for a treat, hopping like a kangaroo or a rabbit for it and owning a bloodhound's nose to find wherever liver treats are hiding. A handsome boy he is too, clad in a perfect coat, an amazing tail wagger, a great walker, polite with neared peers...
  2. Dog scared of people

    Dog Training and Behavior
    A few months ago I met a young dog (they said 11 months) at a local rescue group. She is the sweetest dog but she has high anxiety and it took her weeks to come out of her shell for me. At the time we got her, the kids were in school. School is now out for summer and she either hates or is...

    Hi~ Thank you in advance for any help you can provide. I rescued a dog from a reputable small breed rescue that I have adopted from before. However, this particular dog came right from his bad home situation almost directly to me with a brief stop for 48 hours with a foster to be...

  6. Fostering a Pregnant Dog?

    Dog Health
    First and foremost, I'd like it known that I have never fostered a dog. You may ask, then, What makes you think you're qualified to foster a pregnant dog? Secondly, I'd like to make it known that I wouldn't be fostering her if it weren't an urgent situation. Thirdly, I am not posting this to...
  7. Should I adopt the dog I'm fostering?

    General Dog Discussion
    Hello everyone, I apologize for the large post. I need some assistance from experienced dog and cat owners. I'm currently fostering a two year old dog, an Australian Shepard Mix, named Coby.

  8. Hoping to foster- I have questions.

    General Dog Discussion
    In the next couple months I'll be moving to a bigger place and am hoping to foster dogs for one of the local rescue groups(or maybe for a few of them if that's allowed :)). It'll probably be puppies and seniors. I have lots of questions. Is there anything that you were surprised about when you...
  9. Does anyone have foster experience?

    New Additions
    Well, I ended up not getting the dog the last time I posted on here, not that long ago. It just didn't feel right. Since then, I've started volunteering at the shelter, dog-walking, and helping rescues to evaluate dogs on the kill list. It's been a lot of fun and now I might be about to get into...

  11. Fostering difficulties/rant. Is this normal?

    General Dog Discussion
    As I suspected might happen, my brother is *not* going to let me have his corgi. I expected this might happen, so I had already been looking into possibly fostering/volunteering somewhere. I did not expect how hard it would be to find anywhere who would take me on! I am not kidding. I have...
  12. Male Dog Marking - Solutions

    Dog Training and Behavior
    Because I want to foster rescues in my house some day, I'm curious how you all deal with correcting this behavior. I grew up with parents who never allowed male dogs because they marked and they were convinced they couldn't be trained not to. So for the most part, I've only had female dogs. My...
  13. Dog Adjusting Question

    General Dog Discussion
    If a dog is fostered and then adopted, and the adopter returns the dog due to whatever reasons - is it true that it's better for the dog to be returned to the original foster as opposed to some other foster? Like, the dog establishes a close bond with the original foster, then leaves the...
