Introducing Foster Puppy, Bethany!


Hello friends! We would like to introduce you to our new foster puppy, Bethany. She’s an 8 week, 11 lb. Lab/Golden Retriever mix who has big brown eyes and a “sunny” disposition despite all she’s been through in her short life. Bethany is available for adoption and looking for her forever family! Could you give this little bundle of love a home?

Meet Bethany, a Lab/Golden Retriever mix looking for her forever home!

I received a call last week from Miami-Dade Animal Services with a desperate plea. Bethany needed a foster home fast. The Humane Society of Greater Miami, a partner of MDAS, wanted to take Bethany under their “Guardian Angel Fund”. This fund helps injured shelter pets by providing funding for surgery and rehabilitation but until they could arrange the surgery, Bethany needed a foster home. She was seriously injured, needed to be out of the shelter for surgery and her time was up at MDAS. So, off we went to MDAS and came back with sweet Bethany.

Who can resist this face?!

So yes, we now have three dogs with back right leg injuries. Unfortunately, Bethany’s are a little more complicated than Chelsea’s or Scarlett’s. She has a broken femur and a fractured pelvis; both very painful. We have no idea what caused the injury; it could have been anything from a car accident to a birth injury.

Bethany thinks Scarlett is her mother. Scarlett thinks Bethany is her daughter.

I can’t wait til I get surgery and can walk without pain!

Her pre-op is scheduled for Tuesday and surgery could be as early as Wednesday since this is somewhat of an emergency and we want her to be ready for adoption ASAP. When they informed us of who would be doing her surgery, we were shocked! It is none other than Dr. Sardinas of Miami Veterinary Specialists, the wonderful vet who operated on Chelsea! We have full confidence in him and are very happy he’s going to be performing Bethany’s surgery.

Once surgery is complete, we’ll help Bethany with recovery until she’s ready for adoption. Depending on who wants to adopt her, she could leave us in weeks or months. Regardless, another sweet baby saved from MDAS will have a chance at a long life with plenty of food, grass to run in, toys to play with and people to love.

Mom says I’m too cute for my own good :)

If you or anyone you know is interested in adopting cutie-pie Bethany, please let us know!!! She is obsessed with dogs (especially big ones) and loves cats.  Strong and playful, Bethany loves to please and will make one lucky family very happy!

Could you give me a forever home? In return, I promise to love you forever and ever!

UPDATE: Bethany is now available for adoption in New Jersey with our wonderful friends at Pick Your Paw Rescue. Contact pickyourpaw@gmail.com if you are interested!
