"🐾Happy Gotcha Day little Eli!🐾
1 year ago today, we picked up this little guy from transport, a new “foster” pup for us. Since I am home in the summer, I had agreed to help out our favorite rescue group @gimmeshelteranimalrescue (whom we had adopted Chesney through) and be a foster family to a pup while he waited for his forever home. He wasn’t even the one we had originally volunteered to foster, but we were “just fostering” 🤷🏼♀️
Within those first 3 days home, he went from a shy little guy hiding in the bushes to an immediate part of the pack. The dogs loved him (well maybe one loved him and the other tolerated him very well 😂) and the kids said “We're keeping him, right Mom?” Today Eli (named for , being a Giants fan and having a son @olemiss ) goes by many names around here~ Little Guy, Little Man, Trouble, Shredder, - and he’s such a love bug. He really has his place in our family and our hearts. It feels like a lot longer than a year!
But it just goes to show you when you open your heart, love can find its way in 🐾 Huge thanks to @gimmeshelteranimalrescue for saving him and his brother from that kill shelter!" .
Rescue story: we rescued Eli and his brother Noah when they were dumped at a kill shelter. Both were extremely shy and scared when we first got them. But we like to help the dogs who need us the most. So we took them in and thanks to their fosters down south Mikala and Marty Steele for working with them while they had them in SC they started coming around. Then we lined up appropriate homes up here in NY who continued to help them come out of their shells. Thank goodness for our wonderful networks of foster homes and adopters. 💪🏻Today both boys are adopted to wonderful and doing so much better all around! 🐾🐾❤️
