Being fostered in Wisconsin

Well hello there, my name is Scrappy!  I was picked up as a stray but the shelter was not able to adopt me out because I didn’t like when the Assess-A-Hand got into my food dish.  Rules are rules but I don’t feel this was fair because I didn’t even know what that weird thing was and I was very sick at the time.  Luckily the shelter knew I could have a better chance at showing my true self if I got into foster care, so that is how I ended up with BBR.  It is a good thing too because it turns out I have the heart of a Georgia peach as my foster mommy would say!  And she knows because she can put her non-scary human hand in my food and I don’t get upset one bit.

As I mentioned, I came in pretty sick with nasty ear infections and irritated skin, but the worst part was the bladder stones.  I needed surgery for that, plus something terrible happened to me called a neuter!  Apparently I’m supposed to trust this was for my own good. To make matters worse, I am also on antibiotics for a doggie cold!  Luckily, I take all my variety of medications like a champ.  It also seems my skin is extra oily and I will probably always benefit from frequent baths.  But even with all of this going on, I am enjoying every cat, dog and human I meet.  That even includes the St. Bernards next door!  I liked them so much I thought I would sniff around and see if there might be a little space in the fence where I could slip on over, so my new family must remember that there is some sneaky beagle in this body and watch me real close.

If you didn’t get the picture already, I am a really easy going, calm, gentle, loving guy.  I really enjoy a good snuggle, oh, and kisses too!  I love to follow my foster mom about and see what she is doing.  I’m pretty goofy and my antics are more that of a much younger dog.  Balls, toys and the ears of my foster siblings are all very entertaining in my world.  I am really doing well with not only oral meds but ear cleaning and baths as well.  And the folks that picked me up at the shelter would be happy to see how gentle I have been with treats, letting my foster sister take hers first while I patiently wait for my turn.  And we eat our dinners close together with no problem either.  I’m not competitive with toys, I let the other dogs race down the stairs ahead of me and I am happy to make up the caboose.  I’ve even had my treats stolen by my foster siblings without complaint from me.  When my older foster brother gets grouchy I know how to respect his space.  I do fine with my own space and sleep in my kennel at night, through the night without accident.  Basically, as you can tell, I’m just an all around catch.  If a wonderful dog is what you are looking for, then think of me, Scrappy!

Bruce #2206

Age: 9 months (D.O.B. est 10/2013)
Weight: 37 lbs

Being fostered in Minnesota

☆•*¨*•.¸Hug me!¸.•*¨*•☆☆

Hi my name is Bruce and I’m just a pup.  Sometimes puppies get silly ideas and I guess I got one.  I thought it would be a good idea to eat a sock.  Pretty soon I had a really bad tummy ache. My family did not have the resources to help me so the vet called BBR.  Turns out  I needed TWO surgeries because there were complications after the first.   BBR says they have a foster home waiting to help me get better and find my forever home.  I hope so because I am getting really tired of being in the hospital and having all these tubes and bags and wearing this funny looking jacket.  I want to get back to being a puppy! I really love to snuggle and I give kisses too.

Bobby #2204

Age: 8 yrs old (est 2006)
Weight:  40 lbs.

Being fostered in Minnesota

☆•*¨*•.¸Hug me!¸.•*¨*•☆☆

My name is Bobby and I would be very pleased to meet you!  A family found me posted on Craigslist but decided not to keep me.  The good news is that they called BBR and now I am in a loving foster home.  I am so happy to be there!  I am a sweet, gentle hound who loves attention. I have been to the vet and I’m in good shape except for my teeth.  You see somewhere in my past someone did not take good care of me.  I was left somewhere I didn’t want to be for long periods of time.  I tried so hard to chew my way out that most of teeth are worn down to the gum line. This doesn’t keep me from eating though.  My foster mom is just getting to know me so she’ll write more about me soon.  I do like a good nap on the couch :)

Hello, we are a pair of bonded boys that go by Norm and Wyatt!  Sadly, we came to BBR when our owner passed away.  We are a sweet pair who get along with kids, cats and other dogs.  We are also housetrained. We could use some work on leash training as we do pull.  As far as anyone can tell, thats our only down side- and thats not so bad!  We require a fenced yard and anybody interested in adopting us must be able to meet us at our foster home in Milwaukee, WI.  These items are non-negotiable.

Jack #1973

Age: 7 yrs.Jack 3 D.O.B. 2/16/07
Weight: 55 lbs.

Being fostered in Wisconsin.

Hi, I’m Jack! This is my second stay with BBR.  My adoptive mom said I am the sweetest dog ever, but she had to give me up to take care of an aging parent.  She actually called me Mack or Macadoodle.  I get along fine with other dogs and cats.  I am  house trained. I recently met the two year old who lives next door to my foster mom and I was good with that too. I could stand to lose a few pounds. I don’t care much for walks.  I’ll go for a little bit, then stop and try to go back the other way.  If you want to keep my interest it is best to keep taking new routes so I always have fresh smells to follow.  Foster mom says I’ll even track an ant :) I love car rides.  I am used to being loose in the house when no one is home and out on a tie-out when outdoors.  I don’t love thunderstorms and will shake and get drooly so I appreciate some extra comfort when that happens.
