Status Updates and Puppy Pictures

Most of my foster dogs with issues have now been adopted! Gucci, Jet, Blondie and Annie Beagle all found wonderful homes! Also Leroy was adopted, and Lulu and Gus are both in foster-to-adopt homes. I also took in these temporary foster dogs: Josie, Ginger and Sarge came into rescue along with two other dogs from a hoarder/collector…
