What are the 3 first words that come to mind when you think of your dog: Fearful, resilient, and deserving.
Provide a description of your foster dog and the ideal home for them: Piggy Toad will need a very special home, due to her past trauma and medical needs. She would NOT be suited for city life, or in any home with shared stairwells, or elevators. She would also not enjoy a young boisterous dog, or a dog without proper training and manners. She needs other well-mannered dogs in her home, as without them she is lost and pretty shut down. She needs someone who is patient and kind, and who understands that Piggy will not come out of her shell next week, this is a long process for her, and every day she gets closer to becoming more like a dog. She has just started enjoying the outdoors, relaxing in the grass and playing with the other dogs outside. A calm home, with a family who understands her needs, would help her come out of her shell and be the pampered pooch we know she is inside. Shes going to take a long time before she would be a "hop in the car and go dog" if she'll ever get there. So her owner would need to have realistic expectations of her future.
