Joy Daddy’s Girl

  • Joy and her sister Hope arrived here in Maryland and began their new life with their foster parents on November 21st, 2020. They were about 8 weeks old & very underweight at 4.8 Hope and 5.2 lb Joy. Also, intestinal issues required each of them to spend time in pet ER of Towson. They gave their foster parents and rescue Pitties and Purrs, quite a scare, but thankfully both pulled through and after a couple months were completely recovered and flourishing nicely. While doing a pre-surgery check before spaying joy our vet detected a heart murmur requiring a trip to the cardiologist. Its a level two heart murmur. Her vet and cardiologist are keeping a close eye on it. thankfully it has not grown any bigger. It Certainly doesn't stop her from living a full JOYful life. She'll continue to be monitored by the cardiologist and her vets. as long as nothing changes she should live a long and healthy life.  Joy's sister, Hope, was adopted to a wonderful family which includes a mom, dad, human brothers and kitty cat siblings. Joy was adopted by her foster parents. The two families keep in touch and the girls visit each other a few times a year. Joy loves her life as a resident dog in a foster dog/ petcare home. She has great instincts about each dog that comes through the home and enjoyed wonderful friendships with most of them While they were living with her and her family. A few of the past Fosters have families that chose to stay in contact. They come for visits every now again.. Recently an older fur baby brother was added to Joys family. Her parents knew he would just have to stay once they saw how bonded the two of them got as they each waited for and then healed from TPLO surgeries together. Joy turned 2 years old on September 16th, 2022. She is the light and delight of her parents life.

Except for a child’s bite mark/scar on his ear, he was healthy. No tags, no microchip, and no owner ever came for him. We only had him for 2.5 weeks before he was adopted out. He was the hardest goodbye. It’s always bittersweet when our fosters get adopted out, however, Bear’s departure was a bit more dramatic. He was being transported to Las Vegas, a 4hr trip from us. The experienced transport volunteer had the hardest time getting Bear to leave. He didn’t want to leave our house and fought her to come back inside. Fearing I was making things worse, I had to walk away so he’d hopefully go easier with her. To make it worse, our dog, Edna, was depressed when he left. He made it to his new family. I asked for updates and received one or two. He seemed to be doing well, and he and one of the owners had moved to Oregon. Then in May of last year, the rescue founder notified me that Bear was found in a southern CA shelter. Our heart sank. His microchip info was never changed so the rescue was notified. We immediately agreed to foster again. Thankfully, a volunteer made the trek 3hrs away to break him out of the shelter for us. He arrived in horrible shape. We were heartbroken seeing him. He had numerous ticks, scars, cut up paws, and was walking badly. He’d lean into us and cry. We knew we were about to become foster failures for the very first time. With the help of our rescue, we got him fixed up and back to living the pampered life. We came to find out, he cries all the time anyway. So, he probably partly conned us but we couldn’t imagine life without our Bear.
