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.

Captain's mama Gracie was found walking the streets of a local neighborhood in Memphis. Some kind people took her in and gave her the home she had always dreamed of, and got the surprise of a lifetime when they discovered she was pregnant! A few days later, 7 beautiful pups were born into this world. Captain is weaned and in a foster home waiting for a family to call her own!

Ellen was scooped up by a family travelling through Memphis for their Christmas Vacation (get the name reference? ;)) Since they weren't from here and didn't have any plans to pick up stray dogs, they took her to the most wonderful place on earth, Grace Animal Hospital where she received all her initial shots and vet care. The family soon had to depart and Ellen wasn't in their plans so the kind owners of Grace Animal Hospital took her on in the true spirit of Christmas joy. And that's where we enter. Streetdog Foundation has partnered up to introduce to you all Ellen - and to make sure that she finds the perfect forever family!
So without further ado... everyone say hello to Ellen!!
She is a sweet girl, a little over a year old and appears to be a hound/Staffordshire terrier mix (but who knows...we just like to label her as adorable). She's a little unsure about life with other animals right now but warms up very quickly to all humans. Ellen tested light heartworm positive so for now she has started the beginning phases of heartworm treatment and we are hoping that it does the trick, but if not she will continue through with the full blown treatment. Ellen is currently living at Grace but would love a fantastic and warm foster, or even better, forever home to go to! If you're looking for a good one on one companion to spend some time with then Ellen is just the pup for you!
1/21/18: Ellen was borderline heartworm positive when she came to us, so she is on oral medication which will hopefully 🤞🏻 get rid of those pesky buggers. We will recheck her after a month of oral meds to see if she will need to go through the rest of treatment. She has been in a temp foster home for a bit and is learning what being a real pup is all about!
2/12/18: Surprise! Ellen is PREGNANT! She's ready to pop any day now and we'll have another litter of Streetdogs, born safe and loved. Watch this space or follow us on social media to keep up with our soon-to-be mama and puppies!
2/22/18: Ellen gave birth to ten beautiful babies! She's a great little mama and once the puppies are weaned they'll be ready for foster/forever homes and so will Ellen!
3/1/18: Ellen has been the perfect mama to her babies! She is working on eating lots, feeding those pups, and taking lots of naps.
If you'd like to get Ellen a present for her puppy shower, we have an Amazon wish list set up. Thank you for supporting Streetdog!
Ember needs a foster! Check out our foster page to find out how you can change a dog's life!
We were alerted to Ember's presence outside one of the local hospitals here in the Memphis area. She was limping when we found her and it was clear that she had been on her own for some time but when our volunteers arrived to get her, she smiled up at them with her precious underbite. She was ready to be saved. We took her to our vet to get her checked out and discovered that her limp was the result of an old injury and a bone chip in her shoulder.
Over the past few weeks, our amazing vet's office has gotten her all fixed up and feeling so much better and now she's ready for a foster or forever home! This little brindle beauty is some sort of boxer/bulldog mix, as loving as she can be. She is a little over a year old. She's been so loving towards other dogs, kids and people of all ages and would love a home with any of the above. She's not a fan of the kitty cats though. She also loves to snuggle and play and has been learning all about walking on leashes.

Frank Sinatra's story
"I had been wandering around for a while living on the streets but as the weather began to grow colder and seasons changed to Winter, I knew I had to take matters into my own paws and find a way inside one of these buildings I'd been wandering around for months. I picked a store on President's Island and started standing at the front crying and barking, trying to make someone hear me. They finally took me into the back of the shop. I heard someone mention something about calling a dog pound (but that sounded terrifying?) and luckily someone else said "wait-call Seeds, Inc. One of their dogs might have got out." Well, a lady from there came, took me to a place called Grace Animal Hospital and I got shots, medicine in my bad ear (ugh-didn't like that) and then to a temporary home for a few nights. I had to go back and stay at the doctor though because I had to start getting medicine and treatment for heartworms (that sounds bad!). I'm about 1.5 years old and a sweet boy who just loves to cuddle. I have intriguing blue eyes which is how I got the name Frank Sinatra(aka Ol’ Blue Eyes). I like other dogs a lot and people of all ages. I'm going to be meeting kitty cats soon but I suspect I'll like them too but I'll keep you guys in the loop on that. For now I'm spending time in my foster home getting used to the good life and getting treats and going through heartworm treatment. I'm excited to be a Streetdog now and can't wait to see what 2018 has in store for me!
1/21/18: Frank Sinatra recently started his heartworm treatment, so he is taking it easy in his foster home and getting all the belly rubs!
3/1/18: Frank Sinatra has gotten his last part of heartworm treatment and has been laying low in his foster home. We have learned that he is such a chill and sweet boy as he has settled in! 😍 He is wrapping up heartworm treatment and will get neutered soon enough and officially be cleared for his forever home! Come meet this boy, ladies and gents! You are sure to adore him, just like we do!
Josie needs a foster! Head to our foster page for more information!
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 combating 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 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!

Lance is looking for a foster! This cool dude gets along with everyone and he's looking for a place to hang out while he looks for his forever home. Fostering is fun, free and saves lives!
"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 cats, dogs, kids and love a good chew stick. I like to play fetch and to cuddle in my foster human's lap. I'm about 2.5 years old and about 45lbs. 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!"
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 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!"

Paisley needs a foster! 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.

Peanut Butter's Story
PB was found roaming around a parking lot looking for scraps before Streetdog took her in. After a long treatment for heartworms and hookworms, she’s finally ready to find her forever home! Her fosters say that she’s just so happy all the time! They’ve never seen her not wanting to be loved or moody around people. PB loves to lie around in the sun and snuggle up with her family. She loves to play outside, chew on bones, and play with her toys! She’s crate and potty trained.
One day last Spring I was roaming around the MIFA parking lot looking for scraps when two girls called me over. They started playing with me and it was so fun! One of them put me in this crazy moving thing and took me to her house where she gave me some dog food (I don't think I'd had that before!) and water, which was awesome because I was so thirsty. Then she took me to the vet where they told me I had hookworms, heartworms, and was going into heat. The girl told me it was going to be ok, that she'd fix me and I could stay with her and her husband while I got well. I'm all better now and I've learned to be a good house dog. I like sun batheing, Nylabones, and snuggles--especially snuggles. Wanna snuggle with me forever??
Pongo needs a foster! Would you like to open your home to a dog in need? Head to our foster page to get started!
Hey friends, I'm Pongo! I spent most of my young life chained up in a yard until one day, I broke free and a nice man picked me up. My ears were covered in fly bites and I had some punctures on my face, so the man got me straight to the doctor where I met a nice lady who got me all better! I've spent time learning about leash walking, potty training, doing basic commands for treats. I'm almost 2 years old, a male, and Doc says I've probably got some Staffordshire in me along with some other cute and cuddly dog breeds! I would do great in a home with kitties and probably pups too, but needs some proper introducing. I would love a running buddy or an outdoor explorer to take me on car rides and adventures. I've been spending some time in boarding looking for a foster or even a forever home and I'm determined to meet just the right person soon!! I can't wait!
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.
