Need special fosters

Hi Everyone!

Love is my super power – Is fostering yours?

I need someone who is willing to be patient and show me how to be the best dog ever.  Fostering someone like me won’t be easy.  You’ll fall in love with me and then send me off to my forever home.  But I will be forever grateful and will never forget your kindness – I promise!

As a foster parent you will take me to medical appointments, help teach me manners and show me that the world can be pretty awesome.  If I need more help with my behavior, a trainer will come show us both what to do.  You won’t be expected to learn this all by yourself.  There is an entire team of foster coordinators at GRRMF who will be part of my growth.

I would love for you to be home most of the time and if you have a fenced yard that’s even better.  Oh – I must wear my harness on my walks and GRRMF will send me to you with a brand new one!

GRRMF is looking for a variety of fosters (especially on the west coast of Florida)
In addition to our regular fosters, we need ones for:

Vacation time (short term) – every foster needs some extra fun
Fosters who are home most of the time
Fosters who are willing to help dogs that need behavioral training
Fosters who want a puppy or young dog love short term without a life-long commitment
Fosters who don’t have dogs of their own
Fosters who don’t have any children in their home.

For more information about fostering see and apply here.

Thank you,
GRRMF and a pup in need
