My first foster puppy!
I picked up Baby Girl, a 5-month-old Lab/Beagle mix pup, on Friday night in Winneconne. She was the sweetest, easiest little foster baby ever. I really lucked out for my first puppy fostering experience! She is housetrained, crate trained, spayed, knows commands, and super affectionate. Plus adorable! Her family could no longer care for her with 2 other dogs, 3 cats and 2 small children, she just had too much energy. By Sunday OARS had found her a new wonderful forever home! And it was meant to be - with an OARS volunteer who had been looking to adopt a female black Lab/Beagle mix for nearly 6 months since her beloved black lab/beagle mix dog had passed away. She nearly cried when she saw her. It was meant to be - a match made in heaven!
It was an amazingly rewarding experience. Just a little sacrifice of time and energy to help this family and puppy in need!
