💖LOOKING for "FOSPICE" Adopter💖
Shirley Temple is just the sweetest little lady who seems to grow in personality a little bit each day. She is a snuggle bug and her favorite place is sitting right next to her person in a chair or being on a lap.
She currently requires a few medications. All medical costs will be covered by FDR, as we do with all of our fospice pups. She is currently on ear and eye drops and she is also on oral antibiotics. We hope medications will taper soon.
Shirley moves at the pace of a snail, but does love to explore the backyard when we are nearby. She is close to 100% blind, however, her slight sense of hearing kicks in when we wake up and approach her kennel. She has picked up a healthy appetite over the last week too.
She was mostly potty trained prior to taking prednisone, but frequent outside visits should help keep accidents to a minimum.
Shirley Temple may be a bit of a project, but we get so much joy at watching her come alive occasionally and she would be an easy keeper for someone who is calm and rather sedentary. We think she may always be relatively inactive and not much of a leash walker…but she is light enough to carry her along when needed. Please submit a foster application and note Shirley Temple in the notes section (foothilldogrescue.org) or send us a FB message if you or someone you know would like a calm, sweet little lady.
👏🏼We had two awesome adoptions this week in the form of foster fails!👏🏼
This is something you see on our adoption board quite a bit. At FDR, we want you to find your perfect fit. One that will be forever for that pup. For some people, it takes a few tries and others, it just takes one…and then there’s the ones you were never looking for, but just couldn’t let go of. The pups that the foster decides is the one that will stay forever is a “foster fail.”
We are proud of these “fails,” because it means that pup has found their home and a family and for many foster fails, other pups before them were saved along the way to finding that great match.
If you are interested in adopting, but don’t know exactly what you’re looking for, fostering is a great way to figure it out and it helps save lives until you do. Consider filling out a foster form on our website - foothilldogrescue.org. As a foster based rescue, we can only take in as many pups as we have loving foster homes for, one more home means one more FDR pup!
Post your foster fails below!
Foothill Dog Rescue is the recipient of a generous $7500 grant from the Dave and Cheryl Duffield Foundation.
They have given the rescue this grant for our efforts in helping the animals impacted by the Caldor Fire. The rescue’s volunteers helped out daily at the El Dorado County Animal Shelter in Diamond Springs helping to walk, feed, clean and of course love on around 1/3 of the dogs at the shelter. Many animals were not claimed that came in as strays or were not able to return to their homes and FDR has taken in a few of those animals that were unclaimed or surrendered. Some (including the cuties below) are in need of medical attention and alters, which FDR will ensure they receive before adoption.
Thank you for this incredible grant.
Age: 7 months
Size: Around 30 lbs (still growing)
🐾Dogs: Yes, needs a home with a resident dog.
🧸Kids: Would be best with kids over 8 since he is still a puppy and is learning not to jump
🐈Cats: Curious but respectful (and a little hesitant)
✨He loves playing fetch and wrestling with our resident dog.
✨He has met many people of all ages and sizes in our house and has been very friendly and eager to greet them.
✨He is house-trained and crate-trained.
✨He is very active and would do well in an active house with a yard and a resident dog to play with.
✨He has learned "sit" and is working on "wait", "down", and "kennel".
✨He is VERY food motivated and seems to learn quickly!
✨He LOVES to cuddle next to humans!
As a puppy, BP needs a family dedicated to furthering his basic training and getting his wiggles out.
If you think you could give BP a great home, submit your application: foothilldogrescue.org.
⭐️As a fully foster based rescue, we can only help as many dogs as we have fosters for and to save more, we need your help! Have you considered fostering?
🐾Fostering is a great way to make a difference in a dog’s life and as you’ve seen “foster fail” so many times on our weekly adoption board, you can foster to find the perfect fit!
💖Sometimes it is the first foster, other times it takes many tries, but while you’re searching for the right fit, you are making a difference in the other dogs’ lives that come into your home.
🧸 Foothill provides all of the supplies needed, all we need is your commitment to care for and love them while they are with you.
