|I hope I get this right: from left-Stanley, Stewie, Stella|
It takes a special kind of person and a special set of circumstances to open one's home and heart to a dog who is only going to be there temporarily. I have tremendous respect for the people who charge themselves with the task of getting a dog ready for his/her furever home. Sometimes I think they do a lot of the hard work so others can reap the benefits.
In Stewie's case, Niki saw him on Facebook. It was his last day at the pound, and she couldn't accept that. She contacted the same rescue organization through which she got Stanley, Big Hearts Little Paws, and they agreed to sponsor him if she fostered him.
Niki wasted no time pulling him from the pound and driving him directly to the vet. He had fleas, parasites, and severe luxating patellas, which means his back leg comes out of its socket and won't go back in.
