Meet the Foster Dog Pack

Our foster dogs pack is actually three smaller dog packs.  It helps to keep the confusion down, when I’m not mobbed by ten plus dogs at all times, instead only up to 7 dogs can mob me at once. It’s also a necessity, as not all of the dogs get along with each other. It also lets us have more variation of the ages and activity levels of our foster dogs, as we can choose which dog pack they should hang out with.

Our set up changes as different foster dogs come and go, but the main packs usually stay pretty much the same.

The Big Boys ( The 1st Dog Pack): Jackyl, Chewy Lewis and Great White (Woobie)

The dogs that taught us what having dogs means. All puppies when they moved in, within a year of each other, they really taught us what have dogs means.

The Terrier Trio (The 2nd Dog Pack): Pantera, Santana and Monkey 

All foster failures, Jack Russell Terrier mixes and very high energy, unstoppable forces.  They taught us how to train dogs. And are still teaching us, everyday.

The Older Kids (The 3rd Dog Pack): Ozzy, Meatloaf (Meaty) and (longtime foster dog) Snuggles

“Blessed is the person who has earned the love of an old dog.”-Sydney Jeanne Seward

All over 10 years, and rescued in their senior years, they are our most sedate dog pack. Just wanting to live out their golden years in peace, which you rarely find in this household. They know how to hold their own against the younger dogs though. They’ve taught us about the sweet disposition of the older rescue dog.
