Our new foster

Here is a pic of our new foster. His name is Griffin and he is a 7 yr old gsd. He was dumped at the shelter because his owners no longer wanted him. He has been obedience trained but can be stubbron. I took one of my girls to meet him first and she gave me the ok, she played with him and dindt curl her lip once lol. I am picking him up today after work yippie!

Thanks guys,

Not only is he stunning in his looks but he is oh so smart. He is good on and of lead, knows sit, stay down and come when called, has not been aggressive while eating or chewing on his bones or toys and ignores my 2 kitties. He was aslo very good for the drive home. I know it's only been a few hrs and his true colors will come out when he is more comphy here but me and hubby think he rocks! lol

I wish I could keep them all! Griffin is my 3rd foster and will not be my last. He is such a good boy and so well trained I could just brag him up all day.

Our little kitty is abit miffed tho because he won't engage in any play with her

Toonces,he is truly beautiful and lucky to be with you,will you keep him until he gets a new home,or does he at one point have to go back to a shelter??
You don't know how much I wish I could help out,but it is impossible :sad:

Hi Chico 2

Griffin will be with us untill he gets his forever home, he will never again have to be in a shelter. When he is adopted he is chipped with the new owners and the recuse as a contact and it is in the contract that if they cannot keep him he will be returned to the rescue and placed again but this very seldom happens.

We have someone looking at him but he has to stay with us for atleast 3 weeks until his vet visits are done and we get a good feel for his temperment then he can be placed. My first was here for almost 6 months my second was 4 months and I think he will have the shortest stay because he really has no issues..

I wish he could always be a part of my family but if I kept him I could no longer foster because 3 dogs is my limit so I will settle for whatever precious time I have with him.
