With all due respect, Maryellen, this is exactly what I had planned to do before Eric told me that Susie and her pups were in immediate danger if I did not take them on. And I have two children, not one. And I have handled 20 other foster dogs over the past year with three personal dogs and 2 kids, and they have all been placed into wonderful new homes. Don't you think you're being a bit presumptuous in telling me when I should take on more fosters, how many I should take one, etc., etc.? I mean, come on....are you my mother?
no i am not a mother full time, i have 2 stepchildren. and a husband, the only reason why i posted this is because i have seen you post on pbsmiles when i belonged about asking help for the same stuff... i have seen old posts there as well.. which is why i am saying, with 4 personal dogs and 2 kids maybe its too much for you to do.. take a break.. obviously, one foster dog with 3 personal you did fine with... now you have 4 personal, one foster mom, with puppies..
and no, i am not being presumptous.. i am being realistic..
i dont care if someone is begging me and telling me dogs will die, i will ONLY take in what i can handle... if the rescue cant take the dog in question that is being moved from one foster home to another,then the rescue's owner of that said rescue should take the dog themselves.. and if that cant be done the rescue owner needs to reevaluate his/her practices.. as well as the foster parents as well.... only take in what you can handle.. no one is going to put me in a situation that could turn out negative for my family or my dogs, and no one will guilt me into taking in more then i can handle.. it wont happen, and never has.. and yes, the dogs may die. but its not my responsibility to wipe the rescues butt every time they screw up..
