Fostering Millie, the Pitbull Terrier

Post  Kazza on Mon Mar 09, 2009 3:32 pm

Millie came into the pound just before Christmas and was in a dreadful state. She was terribly thin and her ribs were protruding. She was covered in pressure sores where she had obviously been sleeping on concrete and she had chewed the tip of her tail and left it bleeding.

Fostering Millie was the most rewarding thing I have ever done. Despite numerous setbacks (torn cruciate ligament, mammary tumour, chronic malnutrition), it was just so wonderful to see her progress and she was so grateful to be in a warm, loving environment again. In fact it was so rewarding that I couldn't bear to part with her and she's now a permanent resident here!

Before...



After...

ive fostered a number of dogs in the last year and it broke my heart each time they went, and i thought about keeping each one of them. i still get upset about a particular lab x i had for a good while he was as dosey as you get and was very ill when he got here but he was a dote. fostering is hugely rewarding when you consider the dog has been locked up and then arrives at a warm house with good people and good grub, they dont no what is happening. foster dogs develop a hugh attachment to their foster families because they know what they have done for them. nothin nicer than looking in a dogs eyes and knowing that it was you who saved them...its a big deal. its tough when they are going tho you wish you could explain that you are not letting them down and they didnt do anything wrong...but the gud times and the actual fact of what you've done for that dog outweigh all of that

i,ve lost track of the number of dogs i have fostered , i help lots of rescues with different dogs and i find it very rewarding to see a dog/pup come out of there shell and go on to be confident mature adults xxx i,d recommend fostering to anyone cheers I love you

I've fostered a small few but the one that got my heart (and still has it) was Jessie. I sobbed like a 2yr old when she left - I still talk about her to this day smile
