Running around the goat pen with Pup.

Going inside the house. We don't think she ever had any indoor time before coming here and she gets pretty tense when she has to walk through the house. I think with a little experience she will come around to enjoy being indoors though.

Favorite Walk:
She loves to find me and the other dogs when we are in the goat pen walking and join in the fun.

Best Tricks:
She has good leash manners now that she knows me better.

Arrival Story:
Hershey was a stray that showed up at my grandma's house and had six little puppies a couple of weeks before Christmas. They are now adoptable through the Humane Society of Evans County. More information about adopting and an adoption application can be found at http://www.petfinder.com/shelters/ GA270.html You can contact Hershey's foster mom at: muttsoflove@yahoo.com

I have to admit that I don't know Hershey all that well. She stays with my grandma, but she seems very sweet. She is very gentle with all the people I have seen with her. She is used to running around a neighborhood and gets along well with the other dogs around the block. There is also a cat that hangs around my grandma's and she gets along okay with her too. I tried her out on a leash and she followed it around somewhat reluctantly. She didn't fight with the leash, but I could tell she'd have rather been going in her own direction. She certainly knows how to get along on her own and it has taught her some important lessons. She is a very go with the flow sort of girl that will take any changes as they come and conform to any type of family setting. ~~~~~(UPDATE 1 March 2011)~~~~~ Hershey came to live here with her puppies just before all the sweet little things got adopted. Hershey is waiting patiently for her very own forever home now. She has basically become one of our goat dogs. That means she is trustworthy enough to wander around in the goat pen with the goats and their kids. Only the best behaved dogs ever get this opportunity. It has been quite a change from her running around in a town setting and being a street smart little dog to now spending all day everyday running around in the woods and being a woodsy country dog. She really seems to enjoy the change and every time I see her running through the woods with her new best friend, Pup, she has a big smile on her face. Hershey is very calm and very gentle. She is such a sweet girl I can't imagine why anyone would ever abandon her.

Looking for the Sweet Life

I am currently living in a foster home. It's pretty nice. It is certainly nicer than where I came from anyway. My foster mom found me when I came to her grandma's house in town. I was very pregnant and had decided that the shed in her backyard would be a great place to raise my pups. I didn't know how right I was. The sweet lady took really good care of us until the pups were up and running around. That's when foster mom came and my life changed completely.

When I lived in town I was just running the streets. I had owners, but they didn't really take care of me. That's why I went somewhere else to have my pups. I knew they weren't going to help me and happily I found someone that would.

Anyway, when I got to foster mom's house, boy was I surprised. There are so many animals here it is amazing. There are lots of dogs and they are all so nice to me. They are not at all like some of the dogs in town that I had to protect my pups from. Also, there are loads of cats and goats. I had never seen a goat before, but they seemed pretty nice.

My pups and I got our own pen, so I could keep taking good care of them. They were about four or five weeks old when we got here, so they still needed me. After about three weeks foster mom said it was time for all of us to say goodbye. My babies were leaving for their very own forever homes. She said someone had sent in an application on me, but then backed out. She also said she was sorry, she wished I had a forever home to go to as quickly as my babies did.

It sure was quiet without the babies, but I soon made friends with a big dog named Pup. She is quite old, but she works here keeping an eye on the goats. She showed me all around the place and I had a good time being a goat dog with her. After some time of helping around the farm there was an accident with one of the goats. Foster mom says she doesn't think I had anything to do with it, but just in case I needed to stay in a pen.

I didn't really want to be locked up, but Pup walked with me to the pen and told me it would be okay. She was right. There are three really nice dogs living with me now. Little Dude and Steve are big buddies and they just love having me around. Chloe was so tickled that she couldn't stop hopping and kissing me. She is pretty scared of people and I am trying to help her with that. She is a really sweet girl and made me feel very welcome, so I figure it's the least I can do to repay her kindness.

Foster life has been pretty sweet so far. I've gone from dodging cars to running through the woods with my friends. I've watched as all of my sweet babies went to wonderful homes. I've even seen some of my doggie and kittie friends here go to new homes. There are a lot of really wonderful pets out there looking for a home and I am glad that I found some people that would keep me safe until I can find mine.
