Past Fosters

This page is dedicated to all the dogs that have been placed in new homes. These dogs will always have a special place in my heart. ❤️

My very first foster and the one who started it all. This adorable 12 week old Corgi/Chihuahua mix girl entered my life October 15th, 2014. She was sweet and charming to say the least. She only stayed a week, but in that time I became completely in love with fostering.

Sheba was my second foster. She was a 13-14 week old Shiba Inu/Shepherd mix. Sheba was very timid when she first came to me, but opened up and learned to trust before she left. She was as sweet as they come.

My third foster, and my first pregnant one. Dusty was a 2 year old Pit/Lab mix. She delivered 6 beautiful puppies 6 days after she arrived. Dusty is still my favorite foster to date. She was loyal, sweet as can be, and the gentlest soul. She was a wonderful mother to her pups and a great companion to us. I missed her terribly when she left, but she got a great home where she is loved and spoiled. There were many firsts, from helping her deliver her pups, to raising them until adoptable age, and everything in between. It was a wonderful adventure.

And Dusty’s Planes Litter. Each litter has a theme, this one was named after the Disney movie, Planes. These six cuties were a challenge and a joy. I loved every stage, every little thing as they grew up. From their first tail wag at just a week old, to watching them play for the first time, to watching their personalities come through. So, so many memories made with this first litter and every one after.

Blade, (blue pup) & Rip, (Black pup) are both boys. Blade was born first, Rip second. Blade was needy and sweet, Rip was independent and bold.

Ishani, (Sable pup) & Dottie, (Black pup) are both girls. Ishani was born third, Dottie forth. Ishani was sweet and gentle, Dottie was bold and boisterous.

Patch, (Blue pup) & Ranger, (Sable pup), Patch is a girl, Ranger a boy. Patch was born fifth, Ranger born sixth and the last pup. Patch was Outgoing and playful, Ranger was active and needy.

My next foster was a 1 year old Pomeranian we named, Taz. He was nicknamed Taz the Spaz, and boy did it ever fit. He was very high energy, but a total sweetheart as well. Loved him, he was one of a kind.

My 11th foster, and second pregnant foster. She was a little 12lb Dachshund/Beagle mix we named, Missy. 1 week after she arrived, she delivered 7 beautiful puppies. Missy was quite a character. She started out terrified and unsure of everything, but after we gained her trust, the real her came out. Her true personality was spunky, energetic, and very sweet. She was a great little dog, but without a doubt had her own mind and didn’t always agree with what others wanted of her. Even with her unique qualities, she was dear to me.

Missy’s Litter was mostly named after the Peanuts Comics, with a few spring/summer names we loved mixed in. Missy was a great mom and the puppies were so tiny and adorable. The litter brought their own set of challenges, but they were the dearest little ones. Delivering them and watching them grow is an amazing experience!

Roy, (Tan boy) & Daisy, (Piebald girl). Roy was born first, Daisy second. Roy was laid back and super sweet, Daisy was spunky and bold.

Snoopy, (Piebald boy), Charlie, (Tan boy). Snoopy was born third, Charlie fourth. Snoopy was needy and quiet, Charlie was outgoing and playful.

Next came Skye, Clover and Summer. These three sisters were 3 month old Shepherd mixes. They came from a bad situation, so when I got them they were terrified of people, filthy, and covered in fleas. It took a while to gain their trust, but once we did, their wonderful personalities came through. They were great little pups and I was so glad to have been able to help them out.

Skye, (black&white) Clover, (Black&Tan) Summer, (Tri-Color). Skye was quiet and laid back, Clover was needy and sweet, Summer was outgoing and energetic.

Next came Sparky, a 2 year old male Chihuahua. Sparky was not planned. The dog shelter was having some remodeling done on their kennels and had to place all dogs that weren’t adopted in foster care, and when I saw Sparky, well I had to help him out. He was sweet, but very independent and high energy.

My 23rd foster, and third pregnant dog. Belle was a 2 year old believed Dogue De Bordeaux/Hound mix. Belle was truly an amazing dog. She was found out in the cold, heavily pregnant and starving. She went through so much in her short life, but never stopped trusting and loving everyone around her. Belle took everything in stride, very little fazed her. She was loving, gentle, and playful. Two and a half weeks after she arrived, so delivered 12 beautiful puppies.

Belle’s Royal Litter was named after Disney Princes and Princesses. Belle was a very devoted mother, always put her puppies first. This litter was a big task for me, and this was without a doubt the most difficult litter I have had yet, but they were such dears and all the stress and worry was %100 worth it!

Ariel and Jasmine, both girls. Ariel born third, Jasmine born fourth. Ariel was the smallest pup; she was sweet, loving and quiet, more cautious than her siblings.  Jasmine was sweet, quiet and steady. She had the most soulful eyes I’ve ever seen. Loved her a lot.

Aurora and Giselle, both girls. Aurora was born fifth, Giselle sixth. Aurora was a little bit of everything, she could be quiet and calm one minute and the next she would be playful and feisty. She was a true sweetie though. Giselle was an independent pup and also one of the most rowdy. She was playful, active and affectionate.

King and Natalia, King is a boy, Natalia a girl. King was born seventh, Natalia eighth. King was the fluffiest pup in the litter. He was an easy going, laid back pup who loved his people. Natalia was the wild child, she was vocal, boisterous, and active.

Tiara and Flynn, Tiara is a girl, Flynn a boy. Tiara was born ninth, Flynn tenth. Tiara was the life of the party! She loved to be in the middle of everything. She was sweet, boisterous, and bold. Flynn was the smallest pup in the litter; He was incredibly sweet and very much a people dog. He loved to play and run around, but was never far from your side.

Prince and Spade, both boys. Prince was born eleventh, Spade twelfth and last. Prince was a real stunner with his dark coat and light eyes. He was playful, loving and independent. Spade was loving, playful, and quiet. He was super sweet and would get super adorable when you talked to him.

Next came five, 3 month old Shepherd mix puppies. These five were being held back for an upcoming adoption event, they stayed two weeks. These puppies had a very sad past; The dog warden got called about five puppies running in the road. When the warden got there, the puppies had been collected by their owner, however according to the neighbor who called, they got out constantly and had almost been hit several times. When the warden investigated, they found the whole litter of five large puppies crammed into a tiny pen that was nothing but mud and feces. The warden told the owner they were taking the puppies and the owner didn’t try to stop them. They hadn’t been handled very much and were distrustful of people. They were also scared of everything. When we came to pick them up, they were hiding in the back of their cage at the pound. Thankfully, this story had a great ending, all became happy and healthy and all went to good homes.

Next came these two adorable four month old Rat Terrier sisters. These girls were found on the side of the road by a homeowner, so likely dumped. They had been well cared for at some point in their lives as they were house trained and mostly well mannered in the house. Only had them for five days, but I loved these two.

Meet Rain! Rain was very active and only stopped moving for attention and sleep. She was such a character with a boisterous personality. She was more independent than her sister and was often found off exploring the world rather than hanging out with people. She loved to be with people however and loved to give tons of kisses and enjoy a snuggle, but it wasn’t long before she’d be off to take on another adventure. Another thing about her is she was very vocal, loved to bark and most anything would set her off, whether it was the neighborhood dogs or an unusual sound, she loved to throw her head back and give out a howl-bark.

Meet Cloud! Cloud was calm with moments of energy mixed in. She was a lot quieter than her sister, her nature was much more calm and relaxed. She didn’t bark very much and most of the time only started because her sister was barking. She was very much a people dog with a strong will to please. She loved to give kisses and snuggle in a lap. I believe once the puppy energy wore off she will be quite the affectionate lap dog. She did like to run and play like any puppy, but once the energy was gone she loved nothing more than a nice warm lap to curl up on.

The day after Rain and Cloud left, I brought home Autumn and her eight, 2 week old puppies. A homeowner found Autumn their doorstep begging for food. Shortly after finding her, her eight puppies were found by the dog warden nearby the homeowner’s property. We were called and picked them up directly. They stayed about two weeks, then went to rescue.

 Meet Autumn! Autumn is to date the sweetest and most needy foster we’ve had. She was my shadow, when I moved she would move. She adored everyone and for sure never met a stranger. She was always nearby begging for another belly rub and she would do anything for one! Her sweet disposition won me over in a second. I couldn’t help but adore this lovely, gentle creature who wanted nothing more than to be loved.

Autumn’s Nature Litter. They were sweet and adorable. We had them at a very important stage in their lives so I was glad that they came to us when they did.

Meet The Virtue Litter! These six, (3 boys, 3 girls) 10-12 week old, Beagle/Min Pin mixes stayed for just over two weeks.Their history is a sad one; They were dumped Thanksgiving day, in the beginning all were timid with people at best, and half feral at worst, Justice was the worst and even after two weeks, he was still very timid. Their story was a happy ending though, all improved leaps and bounds while with me, all the other pups by the time they left were completely normal, happy and loving. They all went on to get great homes where they are now loved and treated like they should be.

Meet Cocoa! This girl and her 9, 2.5 week old pups arrived just three days before Christmas. Cocoa, a 4 year old Pitbull mix was found with her pups living under a trailer. Cocoa was independent and active. She had a active mind and high drive, which made her one who needed a lot of walks and mental activity, (thankfully she loved her Kong!). She unfortunately had been someone’s backyard dog for so long, she had no connection to people, and even though I had her for over a month, she never really showed much interest in us, she was sweet in her own way, but not what I would call truly loving. Despite this fact, she was wonderful in other ways, easy going in the house, loved to play in the yard, and always up for a good walk.

And Cocoa’s Christmas Litter, consisting of 5 boys and 4 girls were believed to be Pit/Boxer mixes. Their eyes and ears had just fully opened when we got them. They were 2.5 weeks, (best guess) when they arrived and just over 6.5 weeks when they left.
