When foster becomes forever

When foster becomes forever

Byron came into our shelter in July last year as a ‘surrender’, when his owner could no longer care for him.

Sadly, as can happen for our bigger dogs, Byron wasn’t immediately adopted. As Christmas approached, our foster team stepped in to organise a carer who could take Byron out of the shelter and give him some genuine home time for a few weeks.

Richard and Sarah were first time foster carers and they fell so much in love with this beautiful boy that they couldn’t bear returning him – they came back a week later to adopt him.

Byron now enjoys walks every day and holidays at St Andrews Beach. We think you’ll agree; Byron’s new family and lifestyle was worth the wait!
