Fonzy my foster pup

Post by gbste on Fri Nov 02, 2012 8:43 pm

I got a new foster pup today. He's a little mutt, maybe lab and rat terrier and ???. He is about 4 months old. We picked him up at the vet's this afternoon after he had his "big boy" surgery, plus a tail dock. His tail was broken in several places, so the vet thought that he would be more comfortable with a li'l short tail. He's resting in his crate on a soft blankie right now. Tomorrow I'll have to get some pictures and start intoducing him to the crew here. Right now he seems happy to be sleeping inside in a nice crate on a soft bed.

Oh, I can't wait to see pics. Lab & rat terrier? Should be an interesting combination! Poor little guy doesn't know it yet, but he's landed in a very special place. Hopefully his "big boy surgery" (well said!) and tail loss will soon be a fading dream. I don't normally condone tail docking, but in this case, yes! Crying or Very sad Poor babe! Do you know much of his history?

He was a stray and had been at the dog pound for about 2 weeks. Another volunteer took a pup from the pound as well. She could very well be Fonzy's sister. She's a brindle; he's black with a few brown highlights.

Interesting combination....will he big big like a lab or smaller like a terrier? Either way he sure got lucky when that volunteer spotted him and his sis at the shelter. Fonzy is in very capable, good loving hands now. I know he probably can't believe his good luck at the moment. Can't wait to see pics, and how he is when his personality blossoms.

Here's Fonzee's Petfinder page. I think that everyone should be able to see the pics through this link:

Here are the pictures of Fonzee taken at the shelter. You can see how bad his tail was.

Poor little booger! Nobody needs a broken tail (geez, that had to hurt!) and it looks like it's an old injury, too, so he had to live with it for a while as it healed into that weird shape. He's better off without it, IMO. But, even though the poor little guy looks scared in these early pics, you can see how beautiful he is. What a face! I hope he finds the exact right family. This guy's a keeper! I love you

I have a feeling he'll blossom under your loving care gbste. He looks so intelligent, just look into those eyes.....they speak volumes.

Fonz found his forever home today. He has a great family with a stay at home mom and children who have been begging for a dog. They are first time dog owners, and taking it all very seriously. Fonzee will get puppy training through All Breed Rescue. I think this is a happy match.
