Most of the dog adoptions I complete are done at off-site locations such as PetsMart or at local community festivals. Consequently, I don't normally get to see my dogs with their new families except by chance. Even with my foster placements, I don't have a way to do much beyond a follow-up by phone--I represent the County and and have no legal claim to the dogs I place.
However, two of my fosters have been placed with friends and one adopter--"Peaches," the puppy mill Chihuahua--has sent me several emails.
I wish I could see how "Rusty," my little heartworm-positive Miniature Pinscher, is doing. I called his people twice, but would just like to know if he's still with them. The staff knows that if one of my foster dogs ever comes back to the Shelter they are to call me ASAP. I also always tell the adopters that if things should change, they can call me and I'll make arrangements to get the dog.
