Lincoln’s foster family have joined the club! Yup, the infamous “Foster Fail” club. After 4 months of heartworm treatment, Lincoln decided he’s not going anywhere and we couldn’t be happier. Congrats to Lincoln and the Coleman family!
Pepper (FL) has decided she isn’t going anywhere and will stay with her foster, now forever, family. Her new name is Justice and she is loving life, totally spoiled and will continue being an absolute maniac playing fetch and playing with her human and canine siblings. Congrats to Justice and the Pinkerton family!
Pictures say more than we ever could… Founder, now Winnie, is with her forever family and is HAPPY and LOVED! A HUGE thank you to her foster parents Marion and Matt and congratulations to Winnie and the Kelley family!
Maggie May, in TN, is home! A HUGE thank you to her foster parents, Andy and Sharon, as well as Ashley, Kevin, Kelly and Beverly for helping with her original transport.
From her new family, “Over the past few months, my husband and I had been discussing the possibility of adopting another dog. I came across a post on the rescue’s Facebook page saying Maggie May was ready for adoption. When I read her bio, I knew she would fit in perfectly with our two dogs (Maveirck (male) a 9-year-old chocolate lab and Cabella (female) a 3-year-old GSP) and our active lifestyle. My husband and I live in Tennessee on the Chickamauga Lake. Once I saw the video of her jumping off the dock, that pretty much sealed the deal. I knew right then Maggie would love it here. I sent Maggie May’s bio to my husband and my mom. They both agreed Maggie would be the perfect addition to our family. I quickly filled out the adoption application and was put in touch with her foster parents. Coincidentally, her amazing foster parents only lived 45 minutes from our house. It was important that Maggie not only get along well with Maverick and Cabella but also my mom’s two GSPs, Lilly and Maxx. Thus, we scheduled a meet and greet with the entire pack. Maggie fit in seamlessly from the very beginning. She is getting along well with all of our dogs and particularly enjoys playing with Cabella and Lilly. We live a very fast pace, active life so we didn’t waste any time introducing Maggie to our regular activities. She absolutely LOVES jumping off the dock and swimming in the lake. My mom and I put her stamina to the test with a 4-mile run this morning. She will be a great running buddy once her leash skills improve (lots of training to come). Of course, Maggie is your typical cuddly, clingy (and sometimes naughty) GSP. It is evident, however, that Maggie’s foster parents have worked hard to train over these last couple months. We are so blessed to have been chosen to be Maggie May’s forever family. We are excited to continue showing her lots of love and what life is like with us.”
Congrats to everyone, especially Maggie May!
It’s official… Flapjack (now Jack) is a foster fail!
From his foster, now forever, mom Leanne, “Flapjack (now Jack) is a foster fail! From the first day he came to us covered in pressure sores and his blood work off-the-charts bad, he grabbed hold of our heartstrings and never let go. It took months of meds to heal him on the outside, but he was always perfect on the inside, so full of love and the desire to be loved. And loved he is! He has become the ultimate Velcro. I work from home, and he never leaves my side. He lays on the window bench in my office and watches me work, content just to be near. When it’s break time, he bursts outside and runs 100 mph! In the evenings, Paul teaches him new commands and works with him on manners. He has brought a spark of energy (and sometimes, mischievousness) to our two older GSPs. They didn’t quite know how to take his rowdy and rambunctious ways at first, but they have grown to enjoy the craziness. How can you not love this boy? Flapjack didn’t have an easy start and has overcome so much. I think his plan all along was to bond so strongly with his entire foster fam (canine, feline, and human) that we wouldn’t be able to say goodbye, and that’s exactly what he did! We are so excited to become his forever family!”
Pongo did it! He wormed his way into his foster, now forever, family’s hearts and is now a member of the Cothran family. Pongo loves the boat and swimming and discovered the joy of toys while in foster care and now can enjoy them FOREVER.
Congrats to Pongo and the Cothran family!
Gunner has hit the jackpot – he’s found his forever home! This young guy is super happy with his new family and has assimilated well into his new life. From his new dad, “Gunner loves “his” chair and doesn’t like sharing it LOL. Still working on recall and some separation anxiety. Loves snuggling with the in-law’s lab too.”
A big thank you to Gunner’s foster mom Sandy and congratulations to Gunner and the McManama Family!
Buck (now Jax) loves his foster family so much he has decided to stay right where he is!! We all love foster fail stories... His foster family fell in love with him immediately and just can’t imagine life without him.
Congratulations to Jax, Sandy and Morgan and their three children pictured from left to right: Gavin, Carson and Peyton.
Tilley has found her forever home right here in SC. Yay! She was adopted over the weekend to Mary Ann. Tilley will be able to continue her training in St. George every week and live the retired life with Mary that she deserves.
From her foster mom, “I had the pleasure of fostering this sweet girl before she entered training and a huge thank you to Betsy and her staff the love, time, and attention they gave her during her training.”
It’s official…Oreo is home! The amazing first update we received gave us a feeling it was forever, but not even a day after we posted, it was official. We are so very happy for Oreo and his new family. Some may think the term “foster fail” sounds bad, but not to us! Congrats!
