After carefully considering all applicants, Mac has chosen his forever home! And his foster mom, Kerry, did a fantastic job helping!
From his new dad, Pete:
“ Working with SEGSP has been a wonderful and emotional experience. I initially signed up to gain approval to be a foster parent for any of the sweet pups in transition (which I still plan on doing once Mac is a little older). I thought fostering would be a good way for me to help the organization, the dogs, as well as a way for me to ease into being a full-time dog dad again. Knowing I’d likely be a foster fail, I decided to go ahead and consider adoption.
I love this particular breed so much, it was easy to fall in love with every doggy profile I read. I tried to be as responsible as possible with the applications I submitted, given me living alone, no other pets and my busy work schedule (Multi Family Construction Estimator). My future pup was going to be with me 95% of the time in my truck, working and driving around Tennessee making frequent stops at all the dog parks. Also taking mini adventures every 8 weeks to my family’s land in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Lots of land, water, dogs and dog lovers there. Most dogs didn’t really fit this mold, even as badly as I wanted them to…until I saw Mac.
I almost immediately reacted off his stunning good looks and applied for him before reading his profile! But I tamed my recklessness and gave it a few thorough read-throughs before sending my application off to Kerry, his foster mom. Kerry reached out to me and asked if I’d like to meet him and if we could have a conversation on the phone. I got so nervous as this was a first! She was so sweet and helpful and guided me through all of my emotions and insecurities. After 2-3 phone convos later, she congratulated me and said we were a match. It was such an amazing feeling.
Mac and I have been inseparable ever since. He meets new friends every day, burns out his puppy energy at cool new parks daily, and learns his basic commands at night between dad working on his paperwork. He’s still learning getting in and out of the truck in a natural way, but he is still only small.
I’m so very excited to work/adventure with him, he’s even got a neon yellow vest just like dad so everyone knows he’s official and means business :)
Thank you SEGSP!!!!”
Thank you, Pete, we couldn’t be happier for you and for Mac. And to Kerry, who not only fostered Mac, but also temp fostered two of his littermates, we think you’re pretty amazing. Job well done! Mac looks like he made the perfect choice for his forever home. We are so glad he let you help him pick. ;-)
