Harley/black and white 1yr old, Pumpkin/orange and white red nose about 3yrs old. urgently needs a foster home
Why is fostering needed?
Our house isn’t ready yet and my mother in law is afraid of dogs. I am unable to keep them at the house with us. We just need a safe place to keep them while we wait on our house to get finished. I will provide everything needed for them while they are I’m your home. I am also willing to swap out there weekly laundry with you so you don’t have to worry about it.
How long is fostering needed for?
A few weeks
Girls are not spayed. Was scheduled for Dec since we would be in our new house but have postponed it until we’ve moved in. Both are rescues and wonderful dogs. Both house trained and crate trained. Harley is the youngest as 1 yr and 2mons. She is very playful and loves to be loved on and give love. She is working on not jumping on people when they come over. Her excitement to love on someone new just takes over most of the time. She loves to go zooming throughout the house when she is excited or laying with her sister or kids.
Pumpkin is a bit older, we’re guessing around 3yrs old. She can be timid and skidish when in new places. She is a sweet girl who had a rough start on life it seems. She loves back and belly scratches. Her favorite toy is a ball and sometimes you will find her sleeping with a couple of them.
They are not food aggressive and eat when they want. They get 2 cups of food down in the morning and if the bowls are empty at dinner they get 2 cups in the evening (each). My kids will sit and hand feed them sometimes. They share a water bowl but have individual food bowls. They have treats but don’t get them on a daily. Maybe 3 times out the week. Harley prefers fresh fruit for treats while pumpkin is still learning to like it. They do not get table food. If trash is accessible they may go in it to try and lick plates/containers. We keep a lid on our can and find no issues. Aside from approved fruit please no table food of any kind.
They do get walked at least 4-5 times a day with one being a super long walk. If you plan on be gone for more than 8 hrs. Harley is crated with a blanket vs a pillow. She gets bored and will pull the cotton from the pillow. We make sure they get outside play time and lots of love when we get home so they are not overly hyper at bed time.
They ride nicely in the car. Pumpkin prefers a seat while Harley prefers the floor board.
Both are up to date with shots and Harley is chiped. Pumpkin was supposed to get chipped during her spay but we are making other arrangements to get that done asap.
We allow them on furniture but they know to get down when told and are fine with having a floor pillow or will use there crate as a hang out spot. We keep the doors open so they can go in and out as they please. Would be best in a home with children 5 yrs and older. We don’t have babies in the family so I’m not sure on temperament around infants and toddlers. While I believe both of them would be fine this is something I rather ease into and allow them to adjust with time vs having to adjust in minutes.
