*** Please note that we are NOT accepting applications for the dogs listed as Coming Soon. These dogs have either yet to arrive or have only just recently arrived. Once their foster families get to know them a little better, a detailed bio outlining their personality and describing their ideal home will be posted and we will then begin accepting applications for them. ***
Arthur is a very fun and sweet dog. He loves cuddles and being close to you, and loves being able to run around in a yard. He’s very good with kids and seniors and any one that stops to see him he has to kiss. He doesn’t bark, unless he sees a dog through the fence, but always interacts well with dogs. He can be quite hyper and excited when he knows he’s going outside, and is very playful if you play with him. He can be very calm and relaxed to just spend time laying with you. Arthur has a lot of character that he shows when he creates a bond with you. He can be skittish around loud sudden noises, and isn’t a fan of thunderstorms. But with pets and a calm voice he calms right down.
An individual or a family would be great for Arthur. He can be a bit hyper for an older individual, but still relaxing to be less of a high maintenance dog.

Why We Love Fostering
We love fostering because the dogs bring so much love and joy into our home. Seeing them adjust to life in a home, come out of their shells and become their happy, playful selves is so rewarding. It's also a great feeling so see them got adopted by a home that will love them forever. The foster dogs also have a lot to teach us about resilience, adaptability, trust and unconditional love. They inspire us to be better versions of ourselves. If they can survive their histories while still being loving and happy, so can we.
Why We Love Fostering
Fostering is such a rewarding experience and works great for us as it is very flexible. We love seeing the difference in their personalities from day 1: from timid and nervous to a happy, healthy, better-socialized dog. It gives them time to decompress before going to their perfect home. Fostering enriches our lives knowing we are saving a life each time, and giving them a better life ahead. It warms the heart knowing you were part of this process.
