The good news is that the new dogs seem to get along, with each other and with all the current residents. The bad news is that we are back up to 6 fosters and I only have one kennel. Fortunately, the weather is cooling off so everyone can share the dog yard and the big shed at night. Two of the new ones are housetrained, kid- and cat-friendly. One of the new shepherds is not quite a purebred, but he's good looking, playful, and gets along with everyone. He should have some good adoption prospects relatively soon I would think. The other new shepherd is a hot damn mess medically speaking, but he's very sweet.

with Maddie following closely.
|Natalie and Chloe are kind of joined at the hip.|
|He was wormed and treated for a skin infection|
at the shelter and he's better now than he was,
but he has a long way to go.
|Patch is emaciated, he's got bare, thickened skin,|
a messed up ear, a hairless tail, growths on his belly,
and one lone testicle hanging in a furless scrotum.
|That look is what saved him, and|
he's a sweet boy.
|Toquima, Patch, and Max|
Usually when you have three shepherds together you are lucky if they share a collective brain.
Toquima is pretty solid, and I think Patch is too. Max got the short end of the stick.
|Ochie appears to be a shepherd/Elkhound mix.|
|Ochie is a handsome boy, friendly, playful.|
|Ochie is a party on four legs.|
|Chloe discovered the water tank and|
laid right down in it. Typical lab.
