DOG'S IN NEED OF A FOSTER
Streetdog Foundation does not have a facility, so we depend on volunteers to provide loving foster homes for our dogs while they wait to find the perfect family. Streetdog provides all of the food, toys, medical care and other needed items. Volunteers provide the love! Fill out our Foster Application today or email email@example.com.
TODAY'S FEATURED PUP
Update from a past foster: Lance is very loving and calm when he is in a house. He loves to lounge on the couch, chew bones, and go for walks. He is great with all people and I feel like he would be good with kids too. He’s not the biggest fan of other dogs and I think that’s the only reason he hasn’t been adopted yet. He’s a great runner and goes for runs with some of our volunteers but he is also perfectly happy being a napping buddy and laying in bed or on the couch with someone for hours. He knows lots of tricks including sit, shake, lay down, and roll over and will do just about anything to please you (or for a treat). I love my big baby lance!
Additional foster detail: Lance is Moderately active, ,Leash trained, Does well in a car, Likes to fetch, Likes toys, Obedient, Playful, Affectionate, Gentle, Goofy & Good running buddy!
"After what felt like an eternity on my own out on the streets I finally found a place to rest. I curled up in ball at St. Michael's Church to try to keep warm and rest my head for a bit when all of a sudden some people appeared out of nowhere and we locked eyes. I was wary at first but they invited me to get into their car and I settled in. I was very skinny and dehydrated. They let me recover in their home and I got all of the appropriate vet care that I needed to become healthy. I'm great with kids, I love to run, kids and love a good chew stick. I like to play fetch and to cuddle in my foster human's lap. I'm about 3.5 years old and about 65lbs. I won't get any bigger. I would make the perfect addition to any household and hope to meet my forever family soon! I just know the perfect place for me is out there!"
Lance is currently looking for his next foster home where he can be the only pup. Fostering is fun, free and saves lives!
On January 11th, while searching for another dog in need our volunteers came across Paisley. She had a collar badly embedded in her neck so we rushed her to the doc to get that taken care of. Then we rushed her back out because she was nursing and we knew she had babies out there!
When our volunteers brought new mom Paisley to look for her babies, she walked them a block and a half to a house and began to cry. Some neighbors came out and pointed us to the left side of the house to indicate where the puppies were. But here’s the remarkable thing...Paisley had given birth to her babies in another location and for whatever reason determined that it wasn’t right for them. The neighbors witnessed her put them all on a blanket and move the entire family together to under the house!
So, under the house is where all her babies were and she crawled right down there and began nursing them. Once they were all fed, our volunteers pulled away siding on the house to bring them to safety. And just in time, too, as Memphis was about to be hit with sleet and snow.
Paisley's neck is healing nicely and she is feeding the pups all on her own, eating TONS, and is being sweet to all the staff who is handling her and her puppies.
