Quilts for Foster Hounds

Here's a new and exciting opportunity to help fosters adjust to their forever homes -- FOSTER QUILTS! These quilts are just the right size to fit inside a crate, and will go with the foster hound to their forever home, to help make the transition a little easier. For only $20 per quilt, you get the chance to send a personal note along with the quilt to the foster family and the forever family.

The Spotlight


ADOPTED!! —Meet Rico

Are we the perfect match? That’s “For You To See!”

 For your eyes only….

 What makes me such a special boy?  Well that’s “for you to see!” 

Ha!  I’m clever!  See, my racing name was “For You To See” but my foster Mom calls me Rico, as in Rico Suave.  But since I’m a goofy 2 year old boy, I’m probably not so suave either. 

So why am I a spotlight dog?  I don’t know.  I think the right person hasn’t read my profile yet.  I love humans.  I love humans so much that I want to jump all over them to show them how much I love them!  I want to meet every human (and every dog) I see when I’m on a walk. 

I’m a young boy.  I turn 2 years old in January.   Because I retired so early, I wasn’t leash trained at the kennel, so my foster Mom is teaching me how to behave like a gentleman on a lead.  I’m sure I’d do fine, if I didn’t get so excited seeing humans.  Or so hesitant when I hear a noise that I don’t recognize.    Do you have any idea how exciting and scary the world is?  There’s so much to see and do, and I want someone who will show me all there is to see, and have patience and understanding if I get a bit scared of a new situation.

My ideal home would have a yard where I could expend some of that “young dog energy”.  It would also help if I had other dogs to play with.    I’ll need help learning the stairs.  And did I mention, I need someone with patience, who would love to teach me new things?  Because I’m an 80 pound, excited boy, I probably shouldn’t be with very young children as my clumsiness might knock them over.  But older kids would be fine!  Oh, and no cats!  I’d much rather chase one than be friends.

So what’s for you to see?.......  Come see ME!  Meet me.  Pet me.  Love me. 

If you are interested in meeting Rico, please let your Adoption Counselor know.
