Fostering Dogs: Most asked Questions About Being a Foster Dog Family

As a foster dog mom/family, I get asked a lot of questions about what I do, how I do it and why I do it.  So I’m going to try and answer a few of the most asked questions about fostering dogs and my experiences with fostering dogs.

As I worked on answering the questions, I realized this post was way too long.  So I broke it up into a series of posts about fostering dogs.  So that I could thoroughly answer each question, in depth.  Giving you a better look at the life of a foster dog family.

My answers and experiences may or may not be how other dog foster families would respond to the same questions. So let’s get started with the question I get asked the most.
