We are a tri-state rescue that works mostly in IL, IN, and WI, although we also take dogs from other states and we adopt to people in other surrounding states like MN, IA, and MI. It is really almost a full time job in and of itself, but I love working with the dogs and I LOVE finding wonderful, loving homes for them. There is no better feeling than when I get pictures and updates of my foster dogs and how well they are being treated in their new homes! Yes, it is hard to give them up after fostering them, but as you said, I can't keep them all, and every time I get a foster adopted, it makes room to take another needy doxie into rescue!
Wow! I repeat myself....you are very busy.
I checked out your website and I "liked" you on your Facebook page. I love all those cute little doxie faces.
When I was in college (early 1970's), I rescued a doxie from an owner who didn't want him anymore. Well, I couldn't keep him at my apartment (what was I thinking????).
So I asked my boyfriend's parents if they would "take care of my dog" for me. They said yes and my dog very quickly became the father's dog! Boy, no one could go near dad's chair without a growl! Doxies are just so loyal!
