Daniel and I adopted Bro 11 months ago today from our county shelter. We have had a wonderful almost year with him and the whole family has just fallen head over heels.
We’ve also become acutely aware of the overcrowding at the shelter and although we were sure we were a one dog family our heartstrings were constantly tugged by the need and sheer number of pets who needed homes in our town. So after lots of thought and a family meeting about the meaning of fostering, we decided today to head to the shelter and see if we could help out by fostering a puppy or two for this summer. Well, that didn’t exactly work out and instead we met and fell in love with Sophie. She came home with us after meeting the kids and Bro.
Sophie is another Border Terrier mix. She’s estimated to be 10 months old. She was very insecure and nervous at the shelter. She’s done great with the people in the family and with lots of patience from Bro, she is warming up in spades toward him. She has floppy ears and a long long monkey tail. She seems very sweet. She was spayed yesterday so we look forward to getting to know her personality as she feels better physically and more secure in our home. She’s here to stay!
Her name is still under debate. We may change it to Lil Sis to match Lil Bro, but for today she is still Sophie. 🙂
