Happy Tails

These are Our Happy Tails of Our Adopted Animals Finding their Furever Homes

January 2017
We fostered Meeko about a year and a half ago from WMR.  He was about 4 months old and was scheduled to be euthanized in a shelter down south. When I picked him up from the ranch he was barking like crazy and you could tell he had been in a rough situation. Once I got him home and settled he was like velcro! He instantly became the sweetest puppy that just wanted to be loved. He is such a lovable sweet boy and loves to sit in your lap and be with you all the time! In the two weeks that we were supposed to foster him, he made himself right at home in our family and we knew he was a permanent member! He and my son are so close that I sometimes will find Meeko sleeping right on his pillow cuddled up next to him in the morning. He can still be afraid of other people and dogs, but we've been working with him on learning that he is safe and very loved. He even graduated from Puppy School at Petsmart (granted he had to go to private lessons since he was so scared of the other dogs and people.) But he is such a goofy sweet baby, that we love him no matter what! 
I reached out to WMR this December to foster again after our 16 year old fur baby had passed away a few months previously. I wasn't looking to adopt yet, but we felt a hole where Harley was and thought Meeko and our fur baby Holly could use some company for a little while. Imagine my surprise a few days later when I found out several litters of puppies were coming up the Ranch for an Adoptathon event that were set to be euthanized in the shelter they were in! I offered to foster the little 10 week old Aussie/Husky mix little girl and picked her up at Petsmart. I took her with me to go pick up my other son from school and it was love at first sight between them! She laid right down in his lap and fell asleep! We again, pretty much decided that she was meant to be and we wound up adopting her too! We named her River and she and Meeko are the best buddies! They love to play together and they both are so happy to have a friend (Our other fur baby prefers to be alone). My son who bonded with her right away has Autism and he and River have been the best thing for each other as well. He is so calm and caring with her, and in turn, she gives him the companionship and love that he needed. Our "foster failures" were the best failures we've ever done! It turned out that we needed them as much as they needed us.
