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.
Cindy Lou Who is looking for a foster home! She'll be busy weaning her pups until mid-February so now is a great time to put in an application to foster!
Not long ago, this sweet Beagle/heeler mix, Cindy Lou Who, was picked up off the streets after being neglected and on her own for much of her life. She was slow to trust but eventually people won her over with kindness and lots of treats. She was temporarily in a home situation that didn't work out once they discovered that she was pregnant!!
So, our wonderful vet and staff confirmed the news of her pregnancy and asked for Streetdog's help for her and her pups moving forward! Cindy Lou has been under vet care and supervision for many weeks now through her pregnancy and on December 14, 2017 she gave birth to this beautiful litter of little Whoville puppies!! So once again, we have Christmas babies! ❤️💚
Mama and babies are doing great and we are so proud to announce to the world the births of:
Augustus Lou Who
Drew Lou Who
Stu Lou Who
Euchariah Lou Who
Lou Lou Who
Betty Lou Who

Ekana is ready for a foster home! This sweet boy is house trained, crate trained and is working on learning commands. He can be a little scared when going outdoors or in new situations but he’s getting better everyday. Ekana LOVES other dogs, cats and kids. He’s even an angel in the car. If you’re interested in opening your home to this sweet boy you can fill out a foster application here.
Ekana had a terrible neck wound, some of the worst damage we’ve seen. We believe he has lived on a chain his entire life. But he’s a Streetdog now and that means nothing but love from here on out!
Ekana is healing nicely and ready for a foster home!
Many of you have been following Josie's story since we took her in last September. She was severally malnourished, had a large cancerous tumor that had to be operated on immediately, as well as a long list of other ailments that she has been working on combatting in her foster home. We have watched her thrive over the recent months and blossom into a fun loving senior girl with lots of life and love left to give. After much thought and consideration, we have decided to list our sweet girl as officially adoptable. She is in the best foster home possible, but since she has made such large improvements in such a short amount of time, we don't want to deprive her of the opportunity of finding her perfect forever family to spend the rest of her days in. We are so thrilled for Josie and all of her progress and cannot wait to see what the future holds for her as an adoptable princess!
Lenny is looking for a foster home! He’s a relatively young, energetic pup who loves nothing more than for a person to give him all of their love and attention. He loves and I mean LOVES playing with balls of all sorts, but he also is an amazing cuddler who will give you all of the kisses that you could ever want. He does well with other pups after getting to know them as well!
Lenny's story: "Lenny here – pleased to meet you all! I’m a young little guy from the streets of Memphis, TN. I’ve got a pretty great story to tell ya about! In July, the hottest month of the year, I was wandering aimlessly through the street looking for something…anything…to eat or drink to make it through the evening. I got the smells of a sandwich shop and followed my nose to see if it would lead me somewhere. I wound up outside of a Lenny’s Sub Shop where I huddled around the door for several hours begging for a scrap or a drink of water. Even with my puppy dog eyes I couldn’t convince anyone to buy me a sandwich. I was just about to give up when a big maroon van pulled into the parking lot. I knew immediately that this was no ordinary van. It was magic! (and it smelled like doggies hehe). The people got out and casually strolled over to me while telling me what a good boy I was. The man went inside and bought some meat and water while the woman kept singing to me. I liked her voice a lot.
The kind people, magic van, deli meat and water were all too overcoming for me and I gave in and let them put a leash around my neck. I gobbled up treats of all sorts while they took me to safety. I slept inside on comfy blankets for the first time in my whole life that night – and every night since as a matter of fact. It was awesome. I’ve been gaining weight, getting vaccinated, neutered and microchipped. I tested heartworm negative and have been started on some monthly preventatives. I am a totally healthy boy these days and I LOVE a ball. I can play with my ball all day and all night. I have been in the best foster home getting to be more comfortable with new people. I love to run and play and give the best snuggles ever (at least I think so). If you love to throw a ball, I am your guy!"
Piglet is looking for a foster! This girl loves to play but is also perfectly happy to be lazy and snuggle with you! (especially if it is a bit chilly.) She a A LOT of love to give, is great on a leash and loves walks! Click here for more information on fostering!
Piglet's story: "Me and my closest fleas were wandering down the street dragging the latest in 10ft long chain link fashion! I was really sick and tired, but these nice people spent some time giving me a few treats. After that, the big one picked me up and put me in his car and took me to his house. There my new friends gave me some flea medicine which got rid of all my thousands of fleas, it took a couple of days, but the itching finally went away. We then went on a car ride again and I got a bunch of shots and even got a cool tattoo on my belly! Life kinda settled down for a bit, I got to go on walks, play with the other dogs, I even got to play with that cat thing...I don't think the cat liked me very much. My parents had to take me back to the vet's office a couple of times to get rid of my heart worms, but now I'm healthy as can be.
I'm about 1.5 years old. I love to play with other dogs, all humans, and even kids. But sometimes I get super excited and can't control my booty shakes so I have been known to knock into things with it. I'm currently in a foster home with other dogs including Cosmo, who is also a new Streetdog looking for his forever family. We are living the good life. I get to go on car rides, walks, and even have my very own kennel and bed to hang out in when my fosters aren't home. I don't mind it at all. Cats are a no go though unless they love to play chase. I don't want to eat them but I love to chase them around and around!! I can't wait find my forever family!"
Roux is looking for a foster home! Roux is kid, dog and cat friendly and would prefer someone who can be at home often. She is a great snuggler and super tolerant of human-costume nonsense! If you want to play dress up with Roux, even for a short while, please visit our foster page for more information!
Roux's story: "Hi my name is Roux and I was found in the woods a few years ago with my 3 little puppies. When we were found I had mange and was very malnourished but have since spent some time in a temporary home, put on some weight, got all of my babies adopted and got myself on the right path to true recovery and my forever home after being treated for heart worms. I’m currently about 2.5-3 years old. I’m learning about crate training and loving life with my foster fur siblings. I know how to sit for treats, chicken is my favorite. I like dogs and cats and am super sweet and submissive."
Toby needs a foster!
Toby is a sweet older man who likes to pretend he is a cinnamon roll, is an expert at the zoomies, and loves grill cheese, peanut butter and cheese burgers.
Why you should love him:
- He loves to nap… seriously… it is what he does 90% of the time
- He doesn’t need walks, back yards are fine for his lazy man
- He is ADORABLE and has the best grin
- He is potty trained and crate trained (crates aren’t his favorite but a kong with peanut butter can win him over)
- He likes kitty cats
Other pups stress him out so he'd prefer to be an only dog. If you can open your home to Toby, even for a short while, please head to our foster page for more information!
Toby spent most of his life living on a chain and walking on a hard surface. One day he was wandering towards a busy intersection when a good Samaritan spotted him and scooped him up. He had hookworms and heartworms but he’s been treated and is now a healthy happy boy!
Toby was born around 2011, so he’s well past the puppy stage and has lots of love to give! He gets along with kids and cats but prefers to be the only dog in the household.
