I applied to become a foster mum for Vic Dog Rescue because I was in two minds about the responsibility of a second dog. In February 2012 I received a call from Vic Dog Rescue to say that my application had been approved and that a car load of dogs was arriving in Melbourne on the weekend. I was given a description of a dog named Judd. Judd was a Staffy x 2 year old who had a tough start to life. I had said yes to fostering Judd because I thought that he was the type of dog that was tough enough to handle the rough play from my 4 year old Staffy x Cleo. I also was keen to meet him because I am a Carlton supporter.
I picked him up for the Melbourne drop off / pick up point and was delighted to meet the most beautiful black and white compact little dog. I took his leash and he sat at my feet and looked up at me with these innocent puppy brown eyes. I nearly cried. He was so gorgeous. I drove him home hoping that he and Cleo would be okay together. To my delight they hit it off instantly, within the first ½ hour they were playing tug-o-war in the backyard. Judd is polite, gentle and loving. He loves a tennis ball in the park, sunbaking, dinner time and a hug. Within one month I knew that I would find it heart wrenching to give this little guy up. I emailed Dog Rescue and applied for his adoption. He had won mine and Cleo’s heart. The cats also didn’t mind his presence. Judd today is a very happy little dog who lives in a very loving family of three sisters and a mum. I love him so much. Thank you Vic Dog Rescue.
