Lady, fostered in TN, has been sitting on a secret-she’s not going anywhere and she also has a new name, Sabine, and will be called Beans. From her former foster parents/new mom and dad, “Beans is a remarkable pup. We found SEGSP and thought fostering would be a great step before adopting. We both teared up at the video of Lady in the shelter - skin and bones but still wiggly and affectionate - and we knew we needed to help her.
Her first day, she showed how resilient she is. She was so loving, especially for a dog who’d just spent two months in kennels. She was pretty sick with giardia, double ear infections, had hot spots on both of her wrists, and was severely underweight. Plus, she was spayed the day before. But she made sure to tell us she loved us.
Most importantly, she wasn’t especially concerned with our senior cats (Zoe, 17; Bigs, 14). She’s even licked Bigs a few times. She loves every person she meets and is adorably gentle with kids.
She’s so very smart - she understands and learns commands on the second or third try, and she’s excited to show off her new tricks. Or maybe that’s just the treats she gets as rewards. She LOVES car rides and asks for at least one daily. She’s content to rest her head on the driver’s shoulder and give an occasional kiss on the cheek.
We weren’t expecting to foster fail the very first time, but we knew almost immediately that she completed our little family. We are completely smitten with her.”
And we are smitten with the Malloys. Thank you for taking such great care of our Lady/Beans. We couldn’t be happier for all of you!
