I don't have a new photo of my foster boy yet, but I have finished off my little throw away digital so I should have something for you tonight or tomorrow.

Name possibilities:

Joeb
Gavin
Rowan
Dylan
Harley

He's been getting stronger. He wasn't able to jump up on his hind legs before, but he managed this when I was sitting in my chair this morning. The last two days or so, he did not have enough muscle to make the jump up onto the bed. He tried! But he ended up only about half way there, and again this morning he tried and with a little effort, he managed it.

He still doesn't quite trust that he can stretch out when he's sleeping. He falls asleep in an upright position, opens his eyes and realizes he can lie down completely, and then will stretch out.

He's relaxing more easily. He was very anxious having so much 'space' at first, but he seems to be adjusting now.

I originally wanted to quarantine the dog, but the dogs put the kibosh on that by integrating themselves!!! They lay out of the house makes an effective quarantine pretty impossible I've found out. I still don't let them share bowls - but I think I'm doing that for myself. Dogs and Kids = germsssss when they are together. But the girls are current. I am mostly concerned about worms, so I'll have stool samples done all around.

The unintended integration has been very good for him though. He is resident puppy. The girls have decided he is not getting 'adult dog' status and they treat him accordingly.  they nip him when he gets out of line but they are very maternal and very tolerant with him. Having access to them has given him much needed exercise. He wants to play all the time, and this will help him rebuild lost muscle. It's good to see him balancing better, and attempting to do things he just could not even try a scant 2 days ago.

The girls also give him a sense of secuirty outside. He is not as fearful with the pack. More like a little hesitant but ready to explore. He is sooooo sweet. Really like a 16 week old puppy in many ways which goes far in explaining the dogs' attitude towards him.

I can't wait to have his medical work-up done. But I think nature will take care of a lot of the healing. Play, socialization, good food and lots of water. Just what the doctor ordered!!!

I could go on and on with this all day long. This is 'just' Fulton County, and these are their GSDs. There are many, many more dogs at Fulton County. There are many, many cats. I rescued 'one' dog yesterday, and while I feel great about it, there also comes with it a little bit of sadness as well. I had only one foster space available. Once that space is filled, it's filled until that little pooch is placed in his/her forever home.

Lady looks SOOOO sweet - like she would just love to cuddle up with someone and watch a little tv, eat a treat or two, celebrate the important things in life like bonding and 'dinner' and snooozing.

Jasper  is handsome and ready to go! Come and get me and lets hit the trails and go for a jog!!!

Lena doesn't know WHAT happened. She isn't showing well in the picture because it is clear that she is very scared of the floor. But I bet she warms up and is just waiting for someone to give her the 'right' signal. Some dogs need that.

They are all wonderful and deserving of good homes. If you cannot adopt, please conssider sponsoring an animal, fostering, volunteering. And please, please. please Spay and Neuter your pets!!! Let's do the right thing and empty these county pounds!!!!

This sweet boy was pulled from the Clayton Animal Control facility this morning at 8:00 AM. He is going to be staying with a friend's mom for a week because that was the only way that we could get him out before his euthanasia tomorrow. He is very thin - probably infested with worms, and needs his HW check, and of course neutering. As soon as he gets here, I will be taking him down to the vet for a full check up. If anyone would like to help Skinny Bojangles (my temp name for him) I will be setting up an account for him - probably thru the vet's office. I am waaaaay tired. But I am so happy we got him out. My friend says that he is even skinnier in person than the pic shows so I am anxious to get him in to see the doc. But he is safe!
