I haven't had a dog-post in a while because things have just been in limbo with Emmy, our foster boxit (boxer-pit bull). We have some things going on in our lives that I won't completely get into yet (NO I'm not pregnant) but I will say that we needed to not have a foster anymore. We agreed to take Emmy back in October because I couldn't leave her in the shelter to die after I looked into her eyes and she wagged her tail at me. She went to another foster home for about a week, but was too strong and kept knocking the poor lady over so she came back to us. I agreed to foster her temporarily until another foster home could be found....that was over 6 months ago! She went through heartworm treatment, and is now healthy and ready to be adopted. They problem is that she is not the most adoptable dog ever because she has a prey drive (aka wants to kill cats/small dogs) and is questionable meeting other big dogs as well. She loves our dogs, and I have no doubt she would fight to the death to protect Rich and I, and our 3 dogs....and while that is admirable, that's not the dog for every home. We had so many potential adoptive and new foster homes for her that fell through, and I was getting very discouraged. It was to the point where our only option was to put her in boarding for weeks or months until a new foster home could be found, and the thought of her going from our home to a cage in a kennel by herself just broke my heart. I found out last night that this wonderful family is going to foster her now. They are very dog experienced and will know how to handle her, and won't let her get away with any funny busines. Yet they are extremely loving. I know that she will do great there with them until her forever family comes along to adopt her. I will be driving her up towards North Carolina next week. It will be a very sad day because I really love her, but I know that she's going to a great place and now we can move forward with our lives.
