Jami is a citizen in Evansville, IN, who needs to seek inpatient treatment for PTSD.  Jami is struggling to find a foster for her two small dogs, Rufus and Nali.  Rufus and Nali will only need care for the next two months, from 2/12/2020 – 4/12/2020.  Can you offer them a place to stay?

Rufus is a 10 year old, 25 lbs, neutered male poodle mix.  He is up to date on his vaccinations, flea/tick, and heartworm prevention.  Rufus has lived happily with other dogs, cats, and children over 6 years old.  He has a little separation anxiety, but cannot be crated due to prior experience.  Rufus walks nicely on leash, and knows commands for sit and stay.  Jami says that when living in a home with other dogs, he may want to mark.  She has a belly band for him which discourages this behavior.  Jami says: “He gets really excited when I’m about to give him a treat. Sometimes when I’m talking to him he will turn his head sideways like he is listening intently. He loves to have his belly rubbed, and sit close or lay his head on my lap when watching TV. He loves going for walks and for rides in the car.”

Nali is a 12 year old 7 lbs female teacup maltese.  Nali has not been spayed, and her vet has recommended she not be spayed due to her age.  Nali is crate trained, leash trained, and knows commands for sit and stay.  She has lived with her pal Rufus, cats, and kids over the age of 6 years old in the past.  Jami says that Nali loves to meet new people and will immediately roll over for belly rubs!
