I am a foster mom for Rose's Rescue, so when I was asked to foster a small female Dachshund mix who had been turned in to the pound when her owner died, I said "sure , no problem". Off I went to the pound to collect my 40th foster dog. It didn't turn out to be quite so easy as I recall. My fellow volunteer, Karen and I had to throw a blanket over her because she was so frightened and aggressive. Once I got her home she turned into a different dog almost immediately. Within a hour she was acting like we had been friends forever.
So, I'm thinking this is great, she will get a home right away. Who wouldn't love this cute little healthy girl? I guess Itzy had different ideas about that. She charged and growled at any one who came near her. It didn't take me long to realize that Itzy had already decided what her future would be. I became a foster failure and Itzy joined our pack.
It is over a year later and Itzy is my constant companion, she is goofy and some times naughty but she is well loved and I'm so glad she chose me. Carmella
