Tell Us Your Kindness Story
Special Foster Dog

When my family was fostering animals, we housed a dog that had just had a leg surgery. Even though the dog had metal things in his leg and a cast, he was always so playful. I would always play with him when he needed it. We would take him to the vet about once a month and I would let him sit on me on the way there, even if it was uncomfortable. At the vet, I would stand next to him to keep him calm. Also, I already had 2 other dogs that I would play with, but I would always make time for him or sometimes let him join. I would always try to take him on walks and if his leg started to hurt I would stop and turn around because I wouldn't want him to have his leg hurt too bad. I would make sure he had the best time when he wasn't at the vet. His favorite things were belly scratches, meatball treats, chew toys, and my family and me. I am so glad I got the chance to have him as a dog and I learned a lot of stuff about dogs with disabilities. I am very happy for his new family, but also a bit jealous.
