    My gf and I recently took in a new foster dog. His name is Dami. He is a 10 yr old dalmation who was seized from a CT home. The owners kept him tied outside with no food or water. By the time animal control took him, he was close to death. The couple was arrested and charged with animal cruelty. He now has spinal problems which make him semi-incontinent.

    Good for you, Josef. I hope he eventually finds a permanent home that is full of love for him. In the meantime, I'm sure he's in the best place possible.

    Kudo's to you Joseph. Not many would have stepped up for a senior dog.

    I currently Foster at GSD/Pit mix. Jango by name. He's a hell of a dog and will make someone a great pet.

    Good for you. He's great with people. He just wants to curl up next to me all the time. He's good with our other dog, too; but he pesters him a bit. He probably never got socialized. The other dog snaps at him when he's had enough and then the dalmation backs off. He's learning.
