Iím thinking about fostering this handsome guy

This handsome guy needs a foster home without kids or men. Thatís my house.

Mason is really struggling with being alone since Molly passed and Iím home all the time. I left for a few hours and he was a mess when I got home.

BUT, he really doesnít like having other males in the house and Iím not sure itís fair to him. Plus, because of the virus weíve put a hold on adoptions so Iíll have him FOREVER.

Could you try it out for a couple of days and see if Mason warms up to him?

Aw he's a nice looking dog. Maybe keep looking til you find a female? I hope you find the right pal for Mason.

I actually asked my husband if he's willing to foster a senior dog for our Haley but he's not sure. This virus is closing different shelters here too so I'm not sure if this is the time.

He's very cute. Do you think Mason could get along with him?

Mason will be fine with him as long as he leaves Mason’s food alone.

And if he gets tired of me giving the other dog attention he just comes up, takes all of his almost 90 pounds, and body checks him out of the way. Subtle he isn’t.

His name is Aikman and I’m getting him tomorrow.

He looks handsome in that picture, especially with that red collar!

That was a fast decision.


Right now is a great time to have a new foster I would think. I hope he brings you and Mason some distraction (in a good way) during this crazy time. And of course we need to see more pictures!

He's gorgeous! And I like the name too. It really is a good time to get another. I wish my DH would be open to that. He is a one-dog kind of guy. Hope it goes well!

I'm glad you're getting him. I'm looking forward to stories about him and hopeful that Mason finds him someone he can find comfort in.

He is gorgeous and having the boys in the house will be fun. I feel this will be a foster fail
