Happy Foster Fail Tails to Sweet Honey 💛
Honey’s foster had been looking for a dog to adopt, but every time she thought she found the perfect one, someone else had gotten there first.
So, one day she decided that instead of adopting, she wanted to foster dogs and wait for the perfect dog to find her. The very next day, there was a post from CFP about a lovely little dog who needed a place to stay, and who they just found out was expecting puppies!
Even though she was a little overwhelmed by the idea of puppies, the foster somehow knew that this was the dog she needed to help, and so Rosie came to stay and 2 weeks later, the puppies arrived— 13 of them!!! Who could have guessed there would be 13! So, they became the Baker’s Dozen Litter (all named after baked goods), and the foster enjoyed her time being covered in puppies until they were old enough to be adopted. She hadn’t planned on adopting a young puppy and had no intentions of keeping any of them, but one little girl had other plans.
“Honeybun” was the first of the litter to open her little eyes, and from that point on, she became her foster mom’s little shadow. Anywhere her foster mom was, there Honeybun was too. When it came time to start taking applications, it was clear to Honeybun’s foster mom that she had been “chosen” and there was no way she could say goodbye.
Now called Honey, she is living her best life and giving her mom tons of love every day. She always looks like she is happy and smiling, she loves chasing bubbles and becoming friends with every dog she meets. Honey and her foster mom are still in touch with all of her siblings and even had a birthday party for all of them when they turned 1! Honey recently got to try her hand at being a “big sister” when a new crew of foster puppies came to stay and she loved it so much that it’s only a matter of time before more puppies come to play—and probably only a matter of time before another puppy feels at home and there is another foster fail! ...

Happy Foster Fail Tails from Charlie and Bailey🐾
“Charlie came in to my life when I was looking for a dog 2-1/2 years ago. I actually saw him on the shelter website but there was a snowstorm and they were closed and I didn’t get a response to my email. Soon after I saw “another” Charlie on the Cause for Paws website and met him and his amazing foster mom at a local event. Turns out, same Charlie, he had been deemed rescue only because he was so anxious in the shelter and CFP had stepped in and rescued him. Charlie quickly stole my heart and I always say he’s a momma’s boy. BUT Charlie loves other dogs and had a LOT of energy so we decided to start fostering through CFP!
We have had a few amazing fosters but when I picked up Bailey last November, she quickly seemed like she was a keeper though she was my foster. She and Charlie are two peas in a pod and she loves everyone she meets. When I took her to Charlotte around Christmas and she met my toddler niece and nephew and was so great with them I realized it was meant to be.
I gave her to Charlie and myself for Christmas🎁🎄” ... See MoreSee Less
Ahh know what it's like to have have a high energy...loves other dogs..dog. I Foster failed Ariel for the exact same reasons. My Axel bonded with Ariel immediately and they are super close 4 yrs later. Ariel has become my heart dog too. Congrats on bringing a new baby into the family.
Such a great story! She looks so much like my Benny, who is from CFP too!
