  1. New Member with Foster to adoption dog

    Attention All New Members
    Hi I'm Ashley and I chose to foster a sweet 11 year old Yorkie after my Doctors told me I desperately needed a PSA. He is so sweet 99.9% of the time. Then he turns Cujo and bites me or tries to attack me. He was with the same woman from 7 wks old until 5 months ago. His owner had to go into a...
  2. Updates on fostering mom and pups

    Dog Rescue Forum
    Sadly Cheryl and her her pups had to go back to the shelter for a bit. She was vomiting, lethargic, wouldn't eat, and had vile smelling poo leaking out her back end. I had to rent a cleaner and get the couch, carpet, and car cleaned, it was a lot of work and expense. The good news is isn't isn't...

    BeaglexBassett Hound. What a horrible combination. My family recently pulled a dog from the Animal Shelter, and am fostering him for a rescue. He's BeaglexBassett, with a ton of frustration in there. We just plain can't stand him. This dog is seriously impossible. He has the greatest...
  7. Big OOPS!!

    Dog Rescue Forum
    We had a few criteria in mind for our next foster - mature, not needing a lot of exercise, not too big (mid 40's), adoptable). I had been watching a couple of dogs online when one of them showed up on the nightly euth list but she wasn't one that my wife had shown any interest in. The next...
  8. Have you fostered dogs through a animal charity/shelter?

    Dog Rescue Forum
    Hey all I'm working for a marketing digital agency and due to my love of dogs, I have been tasked to find people who have fostered dogs and have gone on to adopt them (or who are thinking about it). Most of the people I know are US based but I'm really looking for people who live in the UK...
  9. Problem determining amount of food to feed new rescues

    Dog Food Forum
    First, I have run the dog food calculators, and they are telling me that these dogs need 3.5 to 4 cups of food per day. Just to cover that first. That is aligned with the info on the dog food bags (if a bit generous). 6 weeks ago I took in two large breed male, unneutered foster pups. I have...

  12. Foster Parent Training

    Dog Rescue Forum
    Hi All, I foster dogs for a rescue in Ontario, and I've kind of adopted my own "way" of training them. It is expected of me to expose the dog to a wide range of situations, of which I do so confidantly and regularly. Where I worry, is we're starting to foster larger and larger dogs now, as...

    Dog Training Forum
    I'm fostering a large intact male pit bull from the NYCACC. He passed his SAFER with flying colors and the volunteers really fell in love with him. He's had the best recommendations from them I've ever heard. That being said, I got him from the transport yesterday and he was obviously very...

    Albert was certainly a rescue. He weighed 30 lbs when I brought him home. He is now a healthy 62 lbs. You can imagine what he looked like. Albert was sent to me as a foster dog from Michigan Basset Hound Rescue. I was to evaluate him and help him get healthy again. He had a horrible infection on...

    Dog Training Forum
    Hello! I fostered a dog a few days ago. She's an adorable black/white, 15 - 20 lb. mutt who looks like a little fox. When I let her out of her crate and into my house, she was immediately friendly and sweet. She constantly wants to cuddle and is relatively well-behaved (a few accidents in...
