Hank Ferdinand was part of the Foster program, and we were able to get in touch with the foster parents after seeing his picture and description online. We met up with Hank and the foster parents, and immediately saw that he was such a good, sweet, loving, and loyal boy. We knew he was the one, and filed for adoption at the first chance we got. We learned that Hank had likely been hit by a car, was non-responsive on the scene, had a multitude of injuries, but the shelter had taken such great care of him, and he was well on his way to recovery. The first night was a bit rough; he seemed to really miss his foster parents, who had spent just over a week with him. But, day two was better, with him getting used to going for walks, going into the backyard, and getting to know us and the house. At bedtime, he started to get a bit anxious, looking out the window and whining (not for potty). After about an hour, though, he cuddled up, and fell fast asleep. He slept through the night, and we couldn’t be happier. The next day, he really started to feel at home. He started to play with us, with some toys, and he was wagging his tail, all the time! We couldn’t be happier with the care that he was given, the programs available through the shelter, and our overall experience. He really seems to be growing into his own here. Thank you, Front Street Shelter, for everything you did to save Hank’s life (and the lives of ALL the doggies and kitties you save) and get him established in a loving home!
