Choco is 13 week old red-nosed Pit Bull. He was found as a stray, but luckily he was found before something happened to him. (You can only guess the fate of a stray Pit Bull puppy.....sad really.)
I've wanted to foster for quite some time, but was afraid to. You see, Katie isn't the friendliest with adult dogs and that's mainly what needs fostering. I figured we could foster puppies, as she's fine with them. So, I started contacting the local rescues around me and filling out foster applications. Most told me that they didn't have any puppies at the moment, so I figured it'd be awhile. Then I happened across Pit Happens FB page and there was this adorable little red nose boy. He wasn't actually in custody of Pit Happens at the time (mainly b/c Tania says that puppy fosters are hard to find......frankly, I find that shocking) but I commented anyway and told her I was willing to foster him.
I'm also suffering with a case of puppy-fever, so I kind of had/have an ulterior motive for wanting to foster. I figured that I could get my puppy fix and at the same time foster one until a good home came along.
So, on September 26th, I picked up this handsome little guy and brought him home. I was still somewhat nervous as to how Katie would react, but figured she'd be fine as she had no issues with Rio when we brought him home. The introductions went rather smoothly (except for Katie correcting Rio for barking and jumping at the puppy in his excitement).
Katie tolerates the puppy and Rio is happy to have a new playmate. They are a constant source of laughter watching them rough and tumble throughout the house.
He's already been adopted and will go to his new home once he's finished with his shots and gets his neuter. I'll miss the little guy once he's gone, but I know he has a great home to go to and I'll be able to watch him grow.
