I am seriously thinking of fostering a collie from a rescue. My dog loves other dogs, and he is very used to being around them. He is an only dog and we are inseparatable. This is where I worry about my fostering. I am scared that he will be sad when I take my foster for a walk and not him. I know from experience that he does not care if i give another dog attention. he doesnt care if i baby talk them, give them treats or anything (he doesnt like it when I pick one up though!) but the walks are our special time and i am scared he will be upset at me. Doesnt this sound crazy!?
I just cannot imagine walking two dogs next to a busy road. And the foster is from a puppy mill and has never been on a leash! So i guess one will have to be walked in the morning and one at night. And sometimes i will take them both to the park and walk them together.
can anyone else here think of any other problems with fostering dogs? I know that they WILL have issues like people aggression, house soiling, chewing, and probably never heard the word sit, etc.
what am i forgetting? i would hate to realize i have made a mistake
