I'm waiting for my very first foster puppy.It is a four month old pitbull puppy.when it gets here I'll post some photos of her.It's a female.I feel very excited,and if I get attached to the puppy I will adopt it myself.I'm getting prepared for her,she'll be coming about two hours.The lady that has the pup is going to bring her to me.It'll be so cool to have a puppy again!

I approve a foster program, that way you can find out how well you will fit together. Before that, it was bring the dog home and pray. Godd Luck to you and the Pup, can't wait to see the pictures.

Good thing I fostered her.She didn't work out because she kept trampling my lhasa apso and playing too rough.She loved him and didn't realize she was rough.I had my brother take her because he's experienced with the breed.Hopefully I can visit with her.I miss her alot.I won't get rid of my lhasa because he lived here first.I have photos on my profile of her.She's a very friendly dog and loves people.She got excited everytime she saw someone.I had her two days and my lhasa couldn't walk arund because of the trampling and rough play.She's in great hands and I hope to see her again.

I really miss her,and want to see her already.She was fun,but my other dog interfered and got trampled by her .I have to find dogs the same size as him then.

Aww! That's really great of you to do! :) I 'kind of' foster! lol Except I call what I do 'sleep overs.' I take a dog from the rescue I volunteer and take them to my house for a day (maybe two or three), then I bring them back to the rescue and get another one. My shelter says that helps them out a lot because it allows them to see how the dogs do in home situations, and to see if the dog gets along with other dogs, cats, people...important info you need if you want to get a dog adopted. I get really attached to any animals really fast-if I were to keep every animal I grew attached to I would be OVER run! lol (I'm actually about to take in some baby rats--I'll get them tomorrow. I found homes for 3 of them, they'll be about 4 left). I can't wait to see pictures of your new babe!

First of all, I LOVE your profile picture!! and I'm very excited for you. We've thought about being foster parents for animals. How do you go about doing that?

I'm doing the fostering on my own pretty much,I'll be the one finding the proper homes for the dogs.It's hard to foster for a rescue or shelter because they ask too many personal questions about it.This puppy I already found a home for her.The girl I took her from never owned a dog before so she decided on a pitbull for her very first dog,and she works all the time.She shouldn't have a dog at all they need attention.I don't know what made her go get one.A pitbull is only for an experienced dog owner.I wanted to keep the puppy myself,but I already have a lhasa and she kept trampling the poor thing.She loved him too much.She didn't understand that she hurt him when she stepped on him.I need a dog his size if I'm gonna keep one.My brother is experienced with the breed and was excited to take her.At least I can see her again.I love that puppy.If I didn't have the lhasa I would have kept her and did some training for her.

That's really exciting news:) I think it's awesome that you are taking in a foster puppy, especially a pitbull, there are so many of those dogs that wind up in a shelter so it's nice to ehar someone is saving one!

People are so afraid of the breed ,they do not understand that it has to do with the handler.They need to be with the right owner.Inexperienced dogs owners should never get one as their first dog and this is why they end up in a shelter,they are very veyr active for one thing.The owner should not get one if they're at work all the time.It's not a breed you leave at home or just throw out in your yard.They need human attention.

hi java I envy you, I cannot afford tohave a small dog here as it would raise my rent too much. a foster dog , thats an excellent idea. a pitbull would not however be my idea of a good dog to have. we had some horrible times in my old neighborhood with pitbulls,one woman was killed, and another had her face horribly mangled and months of reconstruction to try to get it back to normal. they are so cute as puppies but they do grow up and some are vicious too.

With the pitbull it does matter who owns that breed.they need their owner to give them attention.People that are inexperienced with the breed should not own them.People who aren't homew much should not own one either.They need lots of firm training.That one you're talking about probably did not get handled properly by the owner.This one will only get to be 25 lbs the most,she's miniture size.I did end up giving her to my brother because she trampled my lhasa apso.They liked each other but she kept stepping on him.My brother is experienced with this breed so I called him about her.She does love people and got very excited when ever she saw someone.She'll be a very friendly one who won't hurt anyone.I have to get a dog that my lhasa apso 's size that would be better for him.I do miss the puppy though.Hopefully I'll ber able to see her again.
