As far back as I can remember I have been fascinated with Weimaraners, I knew that someday I would make them part of my life.
I started researching adoption and came across IWR. I fell in love with a gorgeous little girl named Josie, she is 8 and has had such a rough & cruel life, she feared everything and everyone. I adopted Josie the day that I met her and our journey to companionship, trust & love has been a teaching and learning beautiful road. I often ask myself who rescued who?
About 6 months after adopting Josie, I was talking with her former foster parents and they were telling me about their new foster. They tell me “her name is Libby, she is 12 and she could be Josie’s sibling, they are so similar”. I saw a pic of this sweet senior little lady who was surrendered so late in her life and I knew I needed to take care of her!
So, I ask myself…”Are two Weimies enough?” well, the answer to that is NO!!! I want ALL the Wiemies, but realistically I cannot have them all, or so my boyfriend says. I started looking into volunteering with this amazing organization that allowed me to have these two beautiful girls in my life. I submitted an application to be a foster mom. I was ecstatic when I got the call saying that my application was approved. I have had two fosters so far!
I foster and volunteer to make a difference in the lives of the dogs, the families that surrender them and the families that are adopting. I have found that having the opportunities to be involved with IWR, especially as a foster is a very tangible, heartwarming and fulfilling way to make a difference in lives the way they have made a difference in mine & I will continue as long as the IWR will have me!
