Rescued puppy living large in Milwaukee!

by ADHDean on January 8, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

Archer, AKA Buddy, is the dog we fostered in November and December. You may recall that he was the only one of six litter mates that survived horrendous living conditions, a substandard shelter and Parvo. After we helped him through the rough patch with that terrible illness, he thrived. Smart, affectionate and playful, we knew he was special. The rescue organization transported him from here in northeast Alabama all the way up to Milwaukee, WI where his current foster is seriously considering becoming his forever home. This is why we want to continue fostering. And we will, after our puppy pen is safe again.
