Our Foster Puppy

As if our house wasn't crazy enough with 7 kitties that don't all get along we decided to take on a foster puppy. Roxy and her six siblings were living outside in northern Minnesota. Two of the puppies died and the other five barely survived. With the temperatures going well below zero and so much snow on the ground a rescue group stepped in before the momma and puppies all died. They puppies arrived on a transport on Saturday afternoon and we took Roxy home a few hours later.

Roxy is an 11 week old Shepherd mix. She is skinny, but otherwise in pretty good condition. I can't believe how good she is. I think she is just happy to have food and a warm place to sleep. Here is a link to her webpage if you are interested in reading the full story. Roxy

Here is a video of her playing with her favorite toy.

Here are a few pictures of the little girl.

Re: Our Foster Puppy

OMGosh! What a little doll! It sure takes a special person to foster a lost puppy knowing that you'll have to turn it over to a new owner someday. I personally don't have enough inner strength for that. I'd be an emotional wreck. What a great thing you're doing!

She's adorable! What a pretty little girl, and so nice and warm and loved now.

(My girls would love that toy!)

She is so sweet! Love the floppy ears, and the last picture where she is sleeping in her little pink jacket and using her little pink toy as a pillow is wonderful.

Re: Our Foster Puppy

What a cutie! I love to hear these stories where people step in to save a dog or cat from suffering. You're really to be congratulated for that.
