browsed through listings, looking for a photo of a dog with whom she
would feel an instant connection. And one day, it happened — when she saw the picture of a Pit Bull named Echo.
That weekend, she went to the Delaware
County SPCA in Media, PA, to meet the dog. She was “crushed” when Echo wasn’t there; apparently she had been adopted.
Dejected, Jennifer returned home and renewed her search on
Petfinder. The following week, she noticed that Echo was listed again. “I went back
up to the SPCA, and she was actually there this time. The foster
situation she was in didn’t work out.”
She spent about three hours with the dog, getting acquainted, and
her boyfriend came with his dog to meet Echo, too. Her boyfriend
recommended that Jennifer foster Echo, so she filled out the appropriate
papers and was approved two days later.
“It didn’t take me long to totally fall in love with her (I must
have had a premonition of some kind) and make her mine permanently,” she says. She
renamed the dog Ciara.
Jennifer’s experience was so good that
she says she is going to try fostering again.
