my foster
March 2, 2009

So I am really enjoying the short term foster bit. I get to hang out with a pug without making any big commitments or forming too much of an attachment. Because despite how much I love having pugs around, I am still not ready for one of my own again. In the meantime this is a nice foray back into pug land for me.

Maxie is a sweet little pug girl. There is something very Sausage-like about her too. They look like they could have been related. She is a very happy typical pug...

She needs a lot of attention like any pug..

Has a voracious appetite for food, toys, and treats like a pug..

Whoever gets her will be very lucky!

Looks like you may be the happy owner in the end if you're not careful! She looks a lot like my little pug Tucson who will be 17 in May! She also looks a lot like your pugsley. :-(

What a lovely little girl... She will indeed make someone very happy... I can see The Sausage in her face, and what a sweet face that is...

There is nothing like a pug.
Fostering is a great way for people to help out and a good way for some to have a pug that is not ready for the full commitment for what ever reason.
Enjoy her while she is there.

I'm glad that you're fostering. Maxie is very cute.

Lori, it will be hard to say good bye but you have given this little gal some love and a safe home temporarily. She is adorable! Sausage would be so proud!

What a pretty pug girl! You are braver than me. I want them all but I know my limits and I am not good at good-byes either. Good luck with her. I loved Nights in Rodanthe!!

Our first foster through pittierescue.org was a huge success! It had been well over a year since we had to put our girl down with mast cell cancer. We got the best foster dog, ever! She was already trained & gave the best kisses. Came here from out west...and was neglected/abused here. We had potential families to our house to meet her. In the end it was heart & gut-wrenching to let her go, but at the same time it was sooo beautiful/magical to see her snuggled on our couch with her new family. We became attached to this girl over NITE!

It is GREAT to see you reach out to a puggie in need, put your own feelings/heartache aside & give all you got...till you find the perfect new home for her. I don't think people realize how difficult fostering can be, until they have walked in your shoes. Kudos Lori!!!!!!!!!!! ((hugs))

PS
Why do my pug mix's feet smell like fritos?? Weird!
