***A New Beginning***
We have one more awesome adoption announcement to share with you to close out the weekend. This one is about young Coral.
Christina and Jamiel are rock star fosters for MLBR, and even though they have a couple of young kids and dogs (an MLBR alumni too), they never hesitate to raise their hands to help out pups needing a foster home. Whether it’s a mama about ready to deliver her litter of puppies, or a young pup that just needs a short-term place to be until adopted, we can always count on them to help. It was only a matter of time though, when they would end up adopting another one of their foster dogs. 😊 Here's what Christina had to say about how this adoption came to be…
“When we picked up Coral from transport to begin our fostering journey with her, she was so incredibly skinny and dirty, but you could tell she had so much love to give. As with other dogs we have fostered, we were prepared to give her as much love and kindness as possible until her Forever Family came along, and we honestly were expecting her to find her family rather quickly.
We brought her home and she instantly took to Comet, almost like they were siblings. She also loved to snuggle everyone in the house. Well, she got sick and all she wanted to do was sleep and snuggle, so off to the vet we went. We found out she was seriously dehydrated and had kennel cough. This poor girl had already been through so much in her short period of life, it was heartbreaking for us. As we doctored her back to health (which some of the treatment was new territory for us) it felt more and more like we were taking care of one of our sick babies. Coral was unknowingly stealing a place in our hearts, and we became very taken with her because through her sickness she was still so loving and had such a huge sweetness about her. As each day passed and she got healthy, she would follow me everywhere and the second she heard my voice she would perk up and be excited even if she was snuggled with one of the kids or Jamiel. It became very clear to us that she was meant to be a part of our family because she loved being with anyone of us.”
Congratulations Christina, Jamiel, Emmitt, and Caleigh! We couldn’t be happier for you all to have this new little nugget as part of your pack. Thank you for fostering and adopting…again! Please keep us updated on all the crazy fun we know you’ll be having with your new addition.
