OLDIES BUT GOODIES (OBG) COCKER RESCUE
November 20, 2012

I started fostering for OBG after my beloved geriatric mutt passed away. I fostered several special needs and geriatric dogs, dogs that most organizations would turn away. Two of them turned out to have owners who were desperately looking for them - one had been found 30 miles from home and the second was a Katrina dog (OBG took in 9 from Katrina, not all cockers) whose owner was thought to be deceased. If not for OBG these dogs couldn't have been reunited with their owners. The volunteers are fun, friendly people who are tireless in raising funds for vet bills and getting dogs adopted. Cockers are high maintenance dogs that arrive at shelters in terrible shape. OBG transforms these dogs and you'd never know the dog has seen a bad day. My only "foster failure" was a mess when she arrived and within months people were asking me if she was a show dog. I'm now a firm believer in foster-based breed rescue.
