Timmi's success is quite simple. Dogs know when they are 'at home' - and this was the case for Timmi with his second foster family. He fitted right in there straightaway. He was walking off the lead within a couple of days, demonstrated that he had excellent recall and just generally made himself at home. It is for this reason that his foster family decided they would foster him to end of life. What does this mean? It means that he will stay with them as 'their' dog, and all veterinary costs as they arise will be paid for by people who have generously donated in one way or another to the work of Les Amis des Animaux.
Long-term fostering is one of the best ways to help "oldies" have a comfortable and loving life in whatever time they have left.
