Ditto what Karlin says on fostering.
I'm just sickened this poor little pup has been through so much in it's incredibly short life. Poor baby.
We almost kept our first foster a year ago. Due to circumstances beyond my control...it didn't work out. Now, I'm grateful it didn't. I wouldn't have been able to continue fostering. My set up isn't large enough to allow multiple dogs like that. The other thing was that she was healthy, young and adorable. I wouldn't have been doing anyone a favor by keeping her because she was super easy to place.
Be strong Micky and simply tell yourself that keeping him/her is not an option. That's what we have done.
It is such a selfless act to take in a dog, foster and nurture and assess, then pass on to a good and deserving family. You will have brought so much joy into their lives....and can do it again.
