Probably a how long is a piece of string question, but roughly how long is long term? Are we talking months or years?
I can help out with a foster if it is a female and gets on with other dogs, but because I have a brood bitch for Irish guide dogs I wouldn't be able to have a foster while the puppies are here. Juno- the retriever isn't due to be having pups till next spring. Don't know if this helps at all?
