Russell urgently needs a foster home

Why is fostering needed?

I am going to drug treatment for approximately 60 days (supposed to leave this Thursday), but the person who was supposed to care for my dog just flaked out a few days ago. I have been trying to find someone else, but haven’t had any luck so far.

How long is fostering needed for?

A few months

Other notes

URGENT NEED!!!!!! I am going to rehab on Thursday 06/24, and the person I had lined up to care for my dog, just flaked out. I am desperately seeking a loving temporary home for my best friend, while I get the help I need. Russell is a 2 1/2 year-old Boston terrier/Chihuahua mix, and he is the sweetest boy!! He is incredibly social, and gets along with everyone, both people and dogs. He loves to go for walks and play, but is equally happy napping in a sunny window or someone’s lap. He is used to spending most of the time with me, and usually runs errands with me. He can get pretty excited in social situations and during playtime, but easily settles down, and is super mellow at home. He is completely housebroken (no accidents!) and is used to walking on a leash. He’s hasn’t been left alone often, so he does get some separation anxiety (he’s not destructive, just clearly anxious). I do leave him home alone from time to time, and he does fine, he just seems to think I’m never coming back. Even if I’m only gone for 5 minutes, he is so excited to see me when I get home that you’d think I was gone for a year!! Generally speaking, as long as he has someone to keep him company (human or dog), he’s happy. Russell is very affectionate and has so much love to give!! He is my best friend and I am going to miss him terribly!! I really hope to find temporary home for him where he will be safe and happy, so I can get myself healthy.
