4.25.18 Meet Boba Fett



* New to Rescue * New to Rescue * New to Rescue *



Nicknames: Boba, Bubba, Bubs

Age: 4 months (as of 4/13/18)

Activity Level: hyper & playful, as I am still a puppy.

Things I do in my free time: I love snuggles after play time, and give lots of kisses. I like to play with my sister and foster sisters. We play tug-o-war and keep away. I can’t get enough of cow hooves. I can chew those for hours...

Things I know: I’m getting really good at “Sit”, & I come every time my foster mom calls for me. I know what “no” means too.

Things I am learning: kennel and I will wait patiently for my food. I also have not had an accident in the house. *paws crossed*

Kids: I haven’t met any yet, but so far I love everybody.

Dogs: I get along with other dogs both puppies and adults.

Cats: Unknown

Size: I am the biggest of my siblings. I’ll probably be around 50lbs. when I get bigger.

Car rides: I eased my brother & sister when we went for a ride to our Foster Mommy’s. They were scared but it just made me a bit sleepy.

Additional Info from foster parent: Boba aims to please and has been very good in his kennel. He is a quick learner and is easily motivated by food. He is a little talkative during play time but quiet as a peep during nap time.

Meet Ann!




Nova
Who was your first foster?
Nova
Opal

Who is your current foster?
Opal

Why did you start volunteering?
Nick and I adopted our own pup, Benny, from MPBR in May of 2015. We really appreciated the time and care they spent in finding the right home for the right dog.  They sent out the call that they were looking for people to foster.  We had an overnight trial run with a dog, and since then we’ve been helping out where we can!





How long have you been volunteering with our rescue?
2 years

Benny


Do you have any pets?
Benny and Peach (the cat)

Peaches
Where is your favorite dog friendly place to take your pooches?
Rosedale Mall on Sunday mornings and any dog-friendly brewery in the area!  Love to show off great manners!

When not surrounded by dogs – what can you be found doing?
Playing video games, reading, or knitting. (Usually still surrounded by at least one dog.)

Do you have a favorite memory with one of your fosters?
Too many to count!  The one that first popped in to my head is when our first foster Nova found her forever home.  I was with her at an adoption event at For Pet’s Sake up in Blaine.  There were a number of people coming over and meeting her, no big deal.  It wasn’t until she met James that she just completely hammed it up, rolling over on his lap until he rubbed her belly!  That's when I knew she found the right fit!

Do you have a special ritual for your fosters?
I’m thinking of making a Wall of Fame with pictures of all the dogs that come visit and get adopted!

She has mastered sit with the head tilt and that look she gives you with her adorable ears will make your heart melt. She loves receiving attention from everyone she meets. She sleeps well in her crate overnight without hardly any peeps and can make it through the day/night with no accidents. She’s even good at sitting in the crate watching her foster brother and agility classmates run their courses and doesn’t even cry about not getting a turn. Overall, she is a pretty quiet girl without much bark unless it’s play time then a few might sneak out with a little bit of sassiness. However, she is more than happy to play for a bit then snuggle up into you and sleep.

4.18.18 Meet Opal

* NEW TO RESCUE* NEW TO RESCUE * NEW TO RESCUE * NEW TO RESCUE * 

Everyone, Meet Opal:

Nicknames: Pretty girl
Age: 8 months (as of 04/12/18)
Activity Level: Medium
Things I do in my free time: SNUGGLE! Chew on toys and find things to carry around.
Things I know: House-trained, sit
Things I am learning: My name, perfecting sit, down.
Kids: unknown
Dogs: Yes
Cats: Yes
Size: 30 lbs
Car rides: Great!
Additional Info from foster parent: Opal is an absolute gem! She came to us a little unsure, but with each passing day her personality is showing more and more! She is doing wonderfully learning her name & runs to us each time we call her! When she first got here she was extremely fearful of her kennel, crying if the door was closed for any length of time. She has quickly learned that kennel=food! She is one smart cookie! She wants to be friends with the resident cat (who doesn’t really like dogs) but figured out that the cat needs space and gives it! She is a total goof in that she loves to smell hair! She is still skittish on walks and a little hand shy, but with time I think she will be a fabulous addition to any family!
**Visit Opal this Sunday, 4/22, from 1-3 at our adoption meet & greet. Info here!**
