I'm hoping Hershey will be snapped up by a great adopter in no time, but until then, I want to share some fun photos and create a thread to follow his progress towards being a confident, healthy dog. He also has a thread in the general forums for his general progress and happenings but this one can be just for fun pictures.

He's a very handsome boy with a very serious face in those pictures. I'm sure he's going to thrive with you and Chester until he finds his forever home. Looking forward to more Hershey pictures.

I'm such a dork, the first thing I think of when I see new foster pictures is how nice and bright new dog collars/harnesses look.

Shiny blue aside, he is gorgeous! And I love how it looks like he dipped the edge of his right lip in white paint.

I will say it again ... Hershey is beautiful! I just had to add that Chester is such a good sport! :)

Gorgeous dog! He looks so serious. :)
Ha, yes. Serious dog is serious. I thought Chester was a super serious dog in photos but Hershey might rival him in that regards.






I finished (by myself) fencing the remaining portion of my yard between the house and the garage (it had been fully fenced only behind the garage for a large yard separate from the house). Ton of work but so convenient now that it's done. (It's the line along the driveway in the background of two of the above photos).
Also helpful to basically have two large dog runs now :)

He does look quite a bit like a labXpit that I used to work with. Hershey's just a different color and a little more bully-ish. Sadly, the only picture I have of her is her bum sticking out of the dogloo.

First trip to the huge city park near me...








And what I had to hold 150+ lbs of dog back from chasing after--

Wow that's amazing how much he's improved in just one week! He sure is a handsome boy! I'm really starting to like pits, too bad apartments are so bad about the breed restrictions.

Yay Hershey! Good to see him packing on some pounds. :)

I love the blue harness ... Eddee has the same color for his harness and leash and collar too. Brown and brindle dogs look great in that color IMHO.

We've been melting here, but at least we have air conditioning unlike so much of the East Coast. The dogs are still getting time outside, it is just quiet time instead of fun hikes...

Yeah, they're great right up until they snatch up somebody's pikingese at the doggie park and shake it into a bloody rag. That can really be an embarassing inconvenience.

That is just plain rude. Would you say something like in a photo thread of a greyhound or a husky? Both of those breeds can have problems with small dogs in off-leash parks after all. Individual dogs are individual dogs and it is the owner's responsibility to decide if a dog park is appropriate for that dog.

You seem to have some real issues with bully breeds (as evidenced by this inflammatory post and others on other photo threads) but there are plenty of threads on the main forum where you can spout off. All I'm doing here is sharing some fun photos of a very friendly (even dog friendly! Imagine that!) dog for those who might enjoy looking at them.

Sorry, no intent to be rude. Just providing perspective to the comment about apartment restrictions.
That makes no sense. I've had a GSP rip another dog's ear off yet I didn't jump to the conclusion that all GSPs are inherently dangerous. Craziness, I know.

All dogs are just that, DOGS. How safe or unsafe they are is in the hands of their breeders and owners.

The level of ignorance in this post is quite galling. Any dog is capable of anything. Even little dogs such as chihuahuas or dachshunds have been known to tear a hole in peoples faces every now and then. It all comes down to owner responsibility.
