Foster Friday

Today is a very special Foster Friday! I want everyone to meet this skeered little girl who came to us just known as "BIN 13536". (BIN means Boxer In Need. It's how we identify the dogs that people ask us to help.)

"Will you hold me, please?" 
 
Momma went to visit BIN 13536, because she was in the shelter near us. Can you believe that her people moved out in the middle of the night and left her locked in a bedroom?! By the time anyone found her, she'd been there for a long time and was super emaciated. No one knows how long she was left locked in there. :( But she was still very sweet and cuddly. Momma begged and begged, and an LBR foster home stepped up to the task!

So Momma went back to the shelter...

"I am outa there!!"

And brought her home with us!! Her foster home is babysitting someone else and doesn't have room for a few days, so she's going to hang out with us. YAY!! We got right to work fattening her up.


She really needs it, poor baby!


So now I would like everyone to say goodbye to BIN 13536 and say hello to ARWEN!!

"Why hello there! It's so nice to meet you!"

We all love her here. She's so sweet and smart and snuggly. She mostly wants to just sit in Momma's lap, but she'll find any soft place to cuddle if the lap isn't available.


 She mastered sitting for treats real quick. Cinderella and I showed her what to do!

 "Can't smile for the camera. Too busy drooling!!"

 She even figured out toys right away! It's taken most of our fosters a few days out of the shelter to understand what toys were and want to play with them. But Arwen picked up this monkey right away and started squeaking it. She'll bring it over to Momma to play fetch for a while, then she'll just walk around with it in her mouth, squeaking it over and over. BOL!


I think her time here is going to be easy-peasy! Momma said she might have to put on a wig and a false mustache when her foster momma shows up to get her. 

 "Arwen? Who ees Arwen? I am Carlos."

BOL!! Whatever. We'll enjoy her while she's here, that's for sure!

  1. This is such a happy story today and it makes us smile too. But a big paws down to the family that left her behind to die. We just don't understand how a family can be so cruel to such a great dog. Arwen has a heart of gold to still trust.

  2. We hopes that Karma catches up with that crappy cruddy peoples real soon, we don't even want to call them a family cos families don't do that to each others.....she is so pretty and so happy now. It brought tears to our momma's eyes tho when she saw how thin she was. You guys will take care of her just great! Isn't it amazing how fast we fourleggers trust the kind people we come to love.

  3. She is one blessed little girl! She is gonna have the BEST life now and that makes our hearts very happy.

    We too hope they catch those dirt bags that left her behind and hang them up by their toes. THERE IS NO EXCUSE FOR WHAT THEY DID!

    Give her a BIG kiss from us. And one to you too for taking her in.

    Hugs,
