I would love to keep him , but if i do , I wouldn't be able to foster anymore. 4 dogs under my care is enough for me I am not getting too excited about the e-mail for him tough. So many people contacted me for him , but there's always something , either they find him too old , or , after I explained about him and stairs / slippery floors , they are not interested anymore. :sad: But we never know ...... we may find the perfect family for him , and he may stay here.

Frenchy..my girlfriend who is involved GSD rescue here always has 4 dogs..just like yourself....3 out of the 4 they have kept.....One of them is a golden named Briar! he is the sweetest dog....Well anyway, I showed her Ben and her heart melted...she thought he would be great around Briar because Ben is older and so is Briar but she said the exact same thing...she wouldnt be able to help out amymore as she would have a full house!! She has had some amazing fosters over the years...Briar was to be a seeing eye dog but he failed because he ended up having cataracts so they returned him to her because she origionally trained him....Plus she has a few stairs and some slippery floors..Someone will come along for Ben I just know it!!

Awww, poor Ben :sad:. I am so happy he found such a great foster mom and I'm sure his new forever home will find him soon .

He is just so cute, I love his face! And not overweight like so many older Goldens (and Labs too) - it's their food-motivation I guess. Benji, you'll get a home, I just know it! And I can't understand how ANYONE would leave him at the side of the road criminals!

I sometimes get 1-2 inquiries for Ben , per week. But it's never the right family for him. :sad: Until tonight .... OMG ! Please , we need all the we can get ! This couple only rescue older dogs , huge fenced yard in the country , huge house with mostly carpet , even carpeted stairs !!! Dog walker to take them out at lunch. The best thing about it , they know another volunteer from our rescue , who's a vet tech. I called her and she confirmed everything. Now I have to find time to go do a visit with Ben , it's 2 hours from my place , will try to go this week end.

I am so happy This is more than I ever asked for.

With all those 's and 's crossed this is sure to work out .

We're adding in our 12 's and 10 fingers and 10 toes crossed for this to be Ben's forever home.

Please let the couple know that Ben has many supporters who are cheering him on!

It's time for Ben to get a great home Frenchy, so you can get more time with Sam. Sounds like good timing and a great forever home potential.
