    I fostered a full on kelpie recently. I had her for a couple of months before a suitable home was found. I was quite happy to see her off to her forever home. I have enough dogs of my own to have wanted to keep her. I invested some time in training her because she was so feral, but was careful not to get attached - yes a bit like minding a friends dogs.

    However I have my own dogs and no wish to add to them, just to help the occassional working dog in need.

    Well - how did the yard check go and did you get answers to all your questions ?

    Really well!
    No problems with the yard and the lady said it was just as much about meeting the foster parents to see they aren't evil dropkicks
    They were very helpful and answered all our questions and more so we're feeling pretty good about it

    Just waiting to be added to the online group to find the little guy or girl that suits our situation best

    (I'm going to fall in love again and it's going to be horrible at the end)

    Really pleased to read this ! Congratulations !

    There is no shame in being a Foster Failure - that means adopting your foster pup - just don't get to the stage of being a dog hoarder !

    Really hope it goes well for all of you !

    Rubberlegs, sometimes they become foster failures.


    Just remember that IF you choose to keep your foster that restricts your ability to foster future dogs in need. I say this, not because I don't want you to keep a dog, but because you need to decide to add a foster failure to your family and therefore hinder your ability to save other dogs.

    It is hard to let them go but doing so will allow you to save more lives. That's the bittersweet part of being a foster carer. The more love you let go with each departing foster, the more love you allow through your heart with each new arrival foster.
