DOG'S IN NEED OF A FOSTERS THAT HAVE NO DOGS
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. Fosters provide the love and safety. Some of our pups have a history of not being treated so well or have had to protect themselves. Although we will never know each pups history they have a way of letting us know what they prefer and not. The pups below have few options because they would like a foster without any other pups. Long-term boarding can be tough on their little souls. Can one crash with you for a weekend, a week or more?
Lance is looking for a foster!Lance is a super-fun, energetic dog with so much love to give! He is currently looking for his next foster home where he can be the only pup. 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!"
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.

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.
