I have been a foster for Pitty Love Rescue, Inc. for nearly 3 years. Never once has Jenn not been available when I have a serious problem. If your resident dog(s) has a problem with a foster(s), the responsible thing to do is to not let them out together!!!! All puppies have accidents. The puppy in question was 3 months old and to expect her to be completely potty trained is not feasable. ALL dogs have accidents, especially puppies. I myself have always had 3 of my own dogs since I have been fostering for Pitty Love. My oldest male did not like larger sized males. So, what did I do? He stayed in my bedroom while the foster was out. In an ideal world, all the dogs would get along and they could be out together under my supervision. However, like humans (cough-cough), they have personalities that sometimes clash. Your job as a foster and responsible pet parent is to make every situation safe, so you separate them. I don't like the crap that is being said about Jenn personally. She never forces a dog on anyone and will move a foster out of a home as quickly as possible when needed. However, remember, this is a RESCUE. We do not have a shelter dogs can go to. They live in our homes and these foster homes are usually FULL all the time due to the incredibly overwhelming nature of this business. It does take a few days to move dogs typically. When you take on a foster, you take on a responsibility to take care of that dog until he/she is adopted. I would NEVER want to return a foster unless there was severe aggression towards myself so I couldn't let them out to go to the bathroom, feed them or love them. Otherwise, I will make it work in my house. AND I am not a person that only takes one foster at a time. I have had up to 8 foster dogs in my house at once (through a former rescue group), along with my 3 dogs. YOU make 11 different personalities get along! I know I made it work. No one got hurt and there was never a threat of it either! To finish, the most important part, her name was NOT Lil' Pee either!!!!!!! You gave her that name because she had an accident!!!! That is cruel and completely immature.
