I, too, got involved with the wonderful Small Paws Rescue and am fostering a senior Bichon who was rescued from a puppy mill in ALA. He came to me scared of everything and everyone. He is now a very loving guy and much loved. That made me a 2 Bichon family. Then Small Paws put out an SOS that they rescued 44 dogs from a hoarder in OK and I fell in love at first sight with them all. I quickly adopted one of them, a 3 year old Bichon who was just as scared as my foster. I am now training her to do agility but she is so very shy. I am working at building up her self-confidence and know I will succeed with her. My Bichons are all beautiful and loving and I thank Small Paws every day for the wonderful work they continue to do.

You should read this really wonderful book about all the good things adopted dogs can do for us, like even learning how to alert us to a diabetic low blood sugar level or to let an owner know she has skin cancer. Its called Paws & Effect: The Healing Power of Dogs and talks a lot about the wonder of wonderful adopted dogs!

I am not a foster failure...they just decided to stay with me. All FIVE of them! :) Adopted/fostered 5 Cocker Spaniels (ages from 2 to 14) in the past two years and they are my loves!

EXCELLENT! I also have failed 'fur-baby foster parent 101' and have ended up with 5 beautiful rescues that have become essential parts of our family. I'm so glad other's fail too! Congrat's on your lovely fur-baby addition.
