Our family never had dogs, but many cats growing up.
I was thinking about adopting, then met a super sweet foster pup when visiting my folks an hour away.
Passed application and did phone interview with foster mom. Picked a day that worked with both our schedules to meet again; when I got off the phone realized the 20th is Father’s Day!
Looking for any and all tips for first time dog adoption please and thank you!
About her: 3-5 year old pit mix. definitely neglected (no idea about physical abuse but came into the shelter skin and bones). Sweet but completely shy/passive personality presenting right now. I’ll put it this way, the shelter never does this, but they kept her in their office valve cause animal area was too chaotic for her.
My house is fairly quiet. In the city but I guess she came from Baltimore. I have a few acres of public park a block away. Got a gate, big crate (from when I used to dog sit) and 💯 excited and nervous!
