7.24.18 Adoption Update- Charlie


A little background, I have always been a huge dog lover and have had our dog Bacchus for about two years. However, I have always had a dream of having more than one dog, like maybe four, five or ten… My husband and I decided that right now though, I could only have one or two as we were renting.  We had just recently moved to the cities and I was looking up Facebook groups involving dogs when I came across the Minnesota Pit Bull Rescue Facebook page. We had fostered a pitty before and she was an amazing dog and I just felt like I needed to find one for our little family. So, I joined the MPBR page and was looking for a dog pretty much every time they posted a new picture. It had been a few months of being in our new place when I saw him, no not Charlie, but Toby.
My husband and I almost forgot about the event and got to NorthGate Brewing at exactly 1:50, the event was to be held until 2. We were surprised to see almost all the dogs still there, but were excited to meet them and see if Toby was a fit. He was funny and really interested in our attention, but also interested in the other dogs. We were smitten, but decided to take a walk around the pub, just in case. This was probably one of the best decisions we've ever made!



The pub had become less crowded at this point and my husband decided to get a beer so we headed up to the bar and out of the corner of my eye I saw this sweet little boy with a cute tee laying quietly on the floor next to his family's feet. I came over to them and asked if I could pet him and that's when they said he was also available for adoption. He was being so sweet and calm. It wasn't until my husband came over and he sat up that I finally noticed he was a tripod! I was beyond excited by that point as I have always wanted a tripod and a pit bull and with Charlie I could have both! We sat with Charlie and talked with his amazing foster family for a long time.  

Champion & Bacchus
We went straight home to fill out his application and hope for the best! Now, I can't imagine life without him! We renamed him Champion, like the tripod bully mix from Parks and Rec. He is so quirky and fun, yet is able to relax like no other dog I have ever owned! He loves his toys, but fetch has become one of his most favorite activities. During training, he was a star! I have never seen a dog so treat motivated, yet so good at waiting to eat until he is given the signal. At first, Bach and Champ were distant, but after about a week of adjusting they started to slowly become more and more attached and now I can't leave the house with one unless I have the other. They snuggle constantly and Champion tries with all his might to get Bacchus to play with him, which sometimes works, but most of the time Bach just lies there and takes it.

We just recently went to South Dakota for a family vacation and Champ did amazing on the 8+ hour car ride. When we slow down to 45 or less, he loves to sit up and smell out the window. He also exceeded our expectations when it came to hiking and swimming. Overall, our trip was so fun for my two boys, they slept soundly, snoring loudly all the way home.

We are so thankful that MPBR has blessed us with this amazing little boy and can't wait to see how his personality continue to bloom. As I write this Champion is sitting on his big brother trying to instigate some play, but mostly just being a weirdo.

7.15.18 Hi from Uno

Uno learned that she is now big enough to jump in the chair all by herself!! 

She loves to be outside with her foster brothers and sister, going to breweries, going to the office with her foster mom or any other adventures about town. Doesn’t care about cats, iguanas, turtles, fireworks, motorcycles, or heavy machinery. She thinks little humans are pretty awesome too, especially when they have ice cream cake. She thinks getting a turn on the equipment when she goes to agility with her foster sister is awesome. She is not only cute but so stinkin smart.



Now she just needs a forever family of her own, maybe that’s you!

7.11.18 BarkBox Featured Foster- June Edition



Meet Caitlin & Greg!



Badger
Who was your first foster?
Our first foster was Badger in 2013. He ended up being a foster fail and has been a part of our family ever since! We started fostering again in March 2018 with Jill being our fist foster back in the game!

Calla
Who is your current foster?
Our current foster Calla, just went to her forever home (6/17/18)! Calla is such a sweet girl we are sad to see her go, but so happy she found her forever family!

Why did you start volunteering?
We started fostering to help other pups find loving families. Our boys love other dogs to play with and they are so great with puppies. The more fosters that are available, the more dogs that can be listed for adoption.

How long have you been volunteering with our rescue?
3-4 months

Do you have any pets?
We have two pitbull-mix boys, Homer (pitbull, hound, boxer) who is 5 and Badger (pitbull, boarder collie) who is 4.

Jill, Homer, & Badger


Where is your favorite dog friendly place to take your pooches?
We like to do play dates with our friends (and their doggos) and we love to take them camping.

When not surrounded by dogs – what can you be found doing?
Camping, golfing, outdoor activities, and games with friends.


Do you have a favorite memory with one of your fosters?
Calla
When Calla passed gas it was so loud! It would always make us giggle.

Do you have a special ritual for your fosters?
We give our boys extra snuggles since they have had to share Mom and Dad's attention. They love having new friends, but they also enjoy the peace and quiet of adoption.
