Default I am now a foster mom

Enjoy your daughter being home! Your new little girl is lovely and I hope she soon realizes how lucky she is to have you. I came very close to rescuing a boy today myself. Some were brought into a nearby shelter yesterday. But by the time I got there, they were already adopted.

Thank you for taking this baby in. I can't wait to hear your story. I almost had my very first foster last week, but a woman was waiting at the shelter gates at 5:30 the morning she became available. I wish all the babies could have a happy ending like that.

Let us know how its going when you can.

Way to go, Fran! My hero. If it were easy everyone would be doing it - but there is nothing more rewarding for a dog lover's soul than to take a sentient creature thrown away like a piece of garbage and then give them the safety and love they need to build back their confidence in humans - then pass them on to a new life where they are treated like a precious family member. The best. Bron

Fran - thanks so much for coming to this girl's rescue. Poor sweetie. I'm so glad she's found you and hope she'll get a wonderful furever family to love her.

Default Update/story on Desi AKA Eva

I thought I would give my peeps the story of how I became a foster mom. I belong to a yahoo group named Maltese Magic. There is a lady that is a rescue/rehab for mill dogs that belongs to the group. I hadn't been on for a day or so. I just had gotten back to work after taking a week off with my daughter that is in the air force on leave. I signed on to the group and was looking at the posts when I noticed a post regarding a female maltese on craigslist
FREE TO GOOD HOME--FEMALE MALTESE


Free to good home- 6 year old female Maltese. Her name is 'EVA'. She weighs 5 pounds 7 ounces. Her birthdate is 03/02/2006. Absolutely no breeding rights. No texts please.
I saw that it was listed on the Wichita craigslist. Wichita is 3 or so hours from my home. I contacted Eddie Gobbi about this and told her where I live. She asked me to fill out an application to be a foster. I did so. She asked if I could get this girl. I contacted the breeder, got info on Eva. Her kennel is Lovealot Kennels in Sharon, KS. She told me she lived in a cage with 3 other dogs. That she had bad teeth. Had some of her shots, no rabies. I told her I could pick her up Thursday evening. I left work early Thursday. Went home to change and to see if my daughter wanted to go. I called my dh to tell him about this. The kennel is 1 hour south of Wichita. We booked a room in Wichita for the night.
Our venture began. By the time we reached Sharon, KS it was dark. We were on a 2 lane highway in the middle of no where. My daughter and her boyfriend started to make jokes about horror movies and zombies. We then turned on to a dirt road and got totally lost. We turned around and finally found the place. There was a man walking around with a beer in his hand. He came up to the car and asked if we were here for the dog. He looked like your typical Kansas farmer, beer gut and all. The women was on the porch. She reminded me of Elvira. She had long black scraggly dyed hair, a ton of black eyeliner. We walked into the house and there was little Eva in a small cage. She got her out of the cage and gave her to me. That women had given her a bath, so at least she didn't stink. Her little feet and tail are a rust color. She was terrified. We looked at her teeth. Eva has her 2 canines sticking out of her little mouth and several teeth missing. We talked about her feeding. She told me that Eva was feed with an automatic feeder and a water line for water. I had to sign some papers and we were off. Very little conversation. She had told me on the phone that the breeder didn't allow the public into her kennels because a stranger could bring in diseases to the kennel. I never saw where the kennels were. I saw a big red barn looking building, maybe that was the kennel. She said it was heated and air conditioned.
I decided to rename her. She doesn't know her name anyway. She is now Desi. I wanted to name her Desiree, but thought it was too long, hence Desi.
She is slowly coming used to our noisey house. My fluffs are very barky little ones. Um my fault. But I love them.
I went yesterday to Petsmart to buy puppy pads, an X-pen, her own bowls, a little bed, some canned food, a leash and harness. She is eating. She hasn't quite figured out how to drink out of a bowl. I wet her food and she drinks the water. Tomorrow I am going to make a vet appt. for her.
This is the beginning of a new life for Desi outside of the box. I am lucky she is not a tangled mess. Her hair is longer, she did let me brush her this morning. Now that she is getting used to be handled (at least a little). I will take some more pics of her. I will post as she progresses in my home. I hope one day she can be adopted and spend the rest of her life being loved and be treated like the princess that she is.
Fran
