He looks very focused on you/food in those last photos.  He looks ready and willing to be trained to be a great forever dog!

Very alert little puppy

Alas, the 'car sickness' that his previous owners had told us about, turned out to be a fairly severe gastro issue that required treatment, taking him back and forth between emergency vet and day vet for a few days.

He was pretty wretched for a few days

He got some lovely support from everyone, including the children of friends and people who had adopted previous dogs from us

Finally he came home!

Thank you and thanks so much for your help and support.  It was very stressful there for a time.  He was so thin and tiny when he first came into care.

Two of our former fosters - Juniper and Evie have just welcomed new members to their family.  The adopters have been very careful about introductions and supervision and all is going well.

 

Juniper has little Fraser

And Evie has little Finley.

Meanwhile, former foster Willow likes supervising when her humans are playing

Playing with former foster Dyson

He's going on trial adoption on 10 January 2019 and the adopting family have his crate as he's had the occasional day visit and sleepover.  What that means is that he's been upgraded to the 'adult' soft crate at our house which means we've had to make it smaller for him.  Here he is enjoying both the 'ground' floor and the 'loft' space

Gorgeous boy.  Sadly he's going to be renamed Jack but that's part of fostering :)

KTB this thread always lifts my spirits which are often sagging. Your dogs are so loved and your photos so beautiful and lifelike that I can see the expression in the dogs' eyes and I want to reach out and pat them. You are an inspiration and you make the world and DOL a better place. Thanks for sharing and a happy new year to you and your entire household.

Thank you so much everyone for their kind comments.

 

footprintsinthesand - I'm sorry to hear that your spirits are often sagging but very delighted to hear that you enjoy reading about our fosters.  We are sooooooooooooo lucky that all 19 of our adopters still keep in touch with us, some more regularly than others.

 

Former foster Juniper received her Onyx title in Flyball (1300 points) last month

juniperupdate47.jpg

 

 

Present from her adopting family on her Gotcha Day - she was adopted December 2013 and lives in Murrumbatemen.

She's come a long way since being dumped at Gundagai Pound.

Photo of Baxter.  He was adopted September 2012.  He now lives with a cat and a small child who came along well after he had been adopted.  
baxterxmas2018.jpg

 

He has come a long way since being dumped not once but twice at the pound in Canberra and goes on regular runs with his dad.

This is former foster Miller who was adopted September 2013.  His family moved to Melbourne a few years back where his dad is now a firefighter.

Former foster Smudge who lives in Orange.  Smudge was adopted in August 2013.  She became a flyball champion but alas had to retire early due to injury.  We see her and her owner very regularly when they come to Canberra for flyball competitions.

Nutmeg, now Nina.  She lives on Phillip Island, Victoria.  She was adopted August 2013, slightly before Smudge.

It's kind of surreal seeing how far Smudge and Nutmeg have come since their days of being part of the Walgett 6 Litter i.e. the parvo puppies

This was Smudge & Nutmeg at the emergency vet after they were diagnosed with parvo.  They both almost died and one of their litter did die.

He's come a long way in a short time since being dumped at Gundagai Pound.  Here's his unflattering pound photograph

Former foster Ollie. He was our first ever foster dog and you can see his photos at the very start of this thread :)  He was adopted August 2012 and lives in Bungendore.  He's the fluffer on the left

Pound photo from Griffith Pound.  He was our first foster and had kennel cough - we thought he was dying!!!

Former foster Evie.  She has come a long way since being found under a bush at Gundagai.  She was the only dog we've ever had who has vomited up living, wriggling worms ... ewww.  She is now living with her new baby (human) brother and has a 'cousin' named Piglet who is a Cavalier King Charles.

Former foster Twiggy who was adopted back in April 2014.
twiggyupdate16.jpg

 

She has come a HUGE way ... she was skinny and terrified when she first came into care.  Although a little porkier than we'd like, her adopter has trained her well and she's a fully accredited Delta Therapy dog now which is huge given how terrified she was in the beginning.  She spends a lot of time on boats as her dad sails recreationally.
