Hi everyone

I haven't introduced myself yet even though I have posted in the lost and found section (Lost Shar Pei in Richmond ON). I wish that I had found this forum in happier times but it seems like a great place for animal lovers.

A bit about myself besides just looking for my parents' lost dog: I am a huge animal lover and share my life with my husband and almost 4 year old Great Dane. I've always been a dog person and am starting to volunteer with our local humane society as a humane educator. My husband and I recently got married and are moving into a new house with a big backyard soon (a little over a month from now, yay!). Once we get back from our belated honeymoon this summer we are going to start to foster dogs for the humane society. I'm a grad student who works from home the majority of the time so I have the time and we aren't having kids, just fur babies so we figured that this was a great way to help dogs in need. I look forward to meeting other animal lovers and learning more about fostering!
