Benefits or Fostering or Adopting a Rescue Dog
There can be a multitude of reasons as to why a dog suddenly finds himself in rescue and many people believe that if a dog is in rescue he must have something wrong with him. This is simply not true of all rescue dogs as many are relinquished through ‘no fault of their own’ and are generally loving and gentle.
Fostering or adopting a rescue dog may require more effort and patience from you as the carer; however, the love and gratification you will receive in return is immeasurable.
You will be witness to an incredible transformation of the dog when brought into a loving home. Rescue dogs come with their own amazing personalities which may just need a little help to shine through, and although they are French Bulldogs they still come in all different shapes and sizes.
With an increase in ‘back-yard breeding’ and illegally imported puppies into the UK, opening your home to a rescue dog will decrease the need to supply.
As a fosterer there is a wonderful feeling of knowing you have helped and prepared that particular dog to become a successfully Adopted dog, enabling him to stay in his Forever Home – may be you will even become that Forever Home.
It is a wonderful feeling to know you have helped to change, or even saved a life.
