Bialinger Residence Now Fostering!

    So I decided to start fostering dogs for a local rescue (Prairie Dog Canine Rescue) and today I got my first foster! Her name is Gem. She`s a 5 month old cattle dog/border collie cross and she`s super sweet. Here`s her page from PDCR. I`ll put up some spam of her at our place soon!

    edit:

    For some reason, I can`t get the keyboard to type the proper keys, so I`m having troubles with the html. Here`s the link:

    What a cute pup. A cattle dog and border collie mix? That is going to be one energy filled dog.

  • Wow, that is a cute dog. What a great thing you are doing for her! I love working in rescue and hopefully once we move into the new house we can provide a foster home for a dog. It just warms your heart and soul! GREAT WORK HEIDI!


    What do the other dogs and kids think of your new addition?

    You're an inspiration, Heidi! With two kids, three dogs and two cats you've still made time for a rescue! And Gem looks like a sweetheart of a dog...actually, all the pups at the rescue are ADORABLE. I'm in love with Lulu.

    I, too, am in love with Lulu! She is adorable. :)

    And so is Gem! Thank you so much for fostering her. I bet she will find a home quick. How are the kids (furry and non-furry) taking to the new addition?

    Gem has been spayed and is in her forever home! Unfortunately I never managed to get a decent picture. It seems every time I was outside with the pups, my hands were too busy for picture-taking.

    I'm currently fostering Matador, who was already being fostered by someone else, but they can no longer foster him. There's a couple interested in adopting him already so hopefully he gets adopted soon!

    Also, I told them to send some pit bulls my way. Noah says he wants a pit bull and I'm not arguing!

    That is totally wonderful! She's a beauty, and I am certain she will find her forever home!

    I still can't top breaking down when I look at the listings....I'm a total mush when it comes to doggies.

    Heidi: Mat is adorable! And looks like he is adoring his (albeit temporary) new living quarters with your pups! I'm sure the kiddos keep things going for him, too! Not sure where you get the energy for the dogs and the kids, but I applaud your big heart that you are extending to Mat, Gem and others!

    Thanks for sharing the pics!

    Mat definitely looks like one happy pup! Glad that Gem found her forever home, and that you are able to do so much for these guys. How are the kitties liking the new additions?

    The kitties aren't much into the new dogs, but they're doing okay. Ridley sits up on his hind legs and sort of waves/swats at them if they get too close for his liking. Hester just avoids rooms full of dogs.

    Mat has been adopted! He's in his new home and has two other rescued dog buddies. I'm glad he's in his new home. He was a super dog.

    Isaac was too rough on the puppies, so they're with someone else now. Unfortunately, it seems that Mat is coming back into rescue, so he'll be staying with us again.

  • While the circumstances are kind of crappy, I would take a foster dog over foster puppies ANY day.

    I hope Mat finds a home that is a better fit next time. At least they returned him to the rescue instead of regulating him to a chain in the backyard or something equally as awful for the rest of his life. Not to imply that the previous adopters are those type of people, just that a lot of dogs end up in bad situations like that.

    Mat doesn't need to be fostered after all! Yaaaay! It turns out that there was a recently-passed bylaw limiting the number of pets in that city, but they've decided to offer a grandfather clause (after a lot of complaining) so that those already owning more pets can keep them. Huzzah!

    Check out this giant! His name is Tuff. He's an Anatolian Shepherd. He's a big, shy, gentle sweetheart. Tojo has been bossing him around. It's hilarious.

    wow - I missed a lot in this thread!

    Tuff is really handsome! Are you going to keep him for LGD work around your property?

    He is really handsome! Not much of a livestock guardian, though. He wants to eat Melvin.

    Doh! Maybe that is why he ended up in rescue??? Poor guy.

    Yea, he is handsome - can he be shipped to Rui? LOL

    Good work Heidi, it's great what you guys are doing for all the animals.

    I'm telling you, if I had a house with a yard, I'd look into it for real. I don't think it would be very doable though.

    An Anatolian would always have a place in my house, having the space.
