Shame! (covers his face with his paw)
Sport was adopted from Animal House Rescue in early March 2008. He was returned in mid June 2008, a very different dog. I took him in as a foster. He is my very first foster failure!
Sport was returned because he bit a girl that had cornered him and then picked him up to put back into his crate. He was always pretty fearful, but his issues had escalated over the months to where he was now terrified to the point of reactivity. We debated the liability of adopting him out and discussed euthanasia. I couldn't stand the idea of letting him down like that, so I begged my bosses to allow me to foster him for a few months to see if I could rehabilitate him. After a couple months, he had improved - but not to the point that I felt comfortable adopting him out. I had also fallen in love with him and decided to adopt him as my own. I knew I had the tools to do right by this dog.
Since he has been with me, Sport has improved in leaps and bounds. He is confident, intelligent, affectionate and surprises me every day. Sport is an amazing dog and I thank my lucky stars that he found his way to me.
Third home's the charm!

I'm Sport and FM said that I could write my very first diary entry today cuz I got a owie.
I am FM's parents house and I love them. I do not love the stupid cat, Tiramisu. She is mean. I try really hard to ignore her. I leave her alone, but I like to be near my FM and I can't do both sometimes.
Well this evening, Stupid Cat was sitting next to FM. I start sneaking over to FM's feet which is usually okay with her. She then leans over to sniff me and I'm like, "Cool! Stupid Cat wants to be friends!" So I lean in to sniff her too... and BAM she smacks me in the face with her big stupid paw.
Stupid Cat. I don't know what FM was talking about me deserving it. Just because I ate SC's brand new toy, and follow her around everywhere... whatever. I can't wait to go home with out that menace.
