Looking for a foster home for a sweet little boy

I am not sure whether there is anyone who reads this blog in the Minneapolis area, but if there is, I have a special request.

My brother Jason, whose 4-yr.-old son is receiving chemotherapy treatments in Minnesota, will be driving through town tomorrow on his way back home. We are taking care of his dog, Moses, because they are temporarily living with family members and have no place for the dog.

There is a little boy and 3 big sisters who cry for their dog on a regular basis, and are missing him terribly. While we love him too, we know it would be much better for him and for his family if they could all be together.

BY ANY CHANCE is there anybody reading this who lives near Minneapolis who would has a backyard and would love to temporarily foster a sweet chocolate lab so Jason and family can be close to him?

He is a really sweet dog, great with the kids, a fast learner, and eager to please. And he would be so happy to be closer to his boy and his girls! All his food and medical expenses would be covered.

By the way, a couple of people asked for an update on him. He did have another abscess, most likely related to a stick fragment. They drained quite a bit of drainage but were unable to find the source of it. Meanwhile he has responded well to antibiotics and is outside chasing the birds as I type this.

Pretty please.....?

Charissa, you should search the web and see if there are any rescue agencies in that area. I would bet if you can find someone and explain the situation they would be willing.

Are you still looking for someone to watch Moses? We live in Cottage Grove, about 1/2 hour from Minneapolis. We have been following your blog since you went to Ukraine. We were on our way to Ukraine but ended up in Colombia bringing home 4! Let me know

Does Moses like other dogs? How about Cats?

I really hope that you are able to find someone to take Moses so that he can be closer to home! Praying that someone steps forward to care for him while Von recovers.

I also wanted to let you know that I nominated you for a blog award. I appreciate your friendship so much and you inspire me every day and I just wanted you to know how much that means to me!

Nance,
Yes, Moses got along very well with our other dog (However he hasn't been fixed yet). Cats? I'm not sure, but calves and chicks, yes! Email me if you are interested. I wasn't able to get your email address. Thank you!
