I’ve been a proud foster parent of a wonderful pit bull mix for the past 3 years. “Pretty” is a beautiful girl who I took in when I saw her owner dropping her off at PAWS back in 2007.
UPDATE: Looks like Pretty has found a permanent home with a wonderful family with 3 kids and now, 3 dogs! Congrats to all and a special thanks to the family that has opened their hearts and their home.
In that time, I’ve gone from being a single guy living on Glenridge Avenue to a married man, living near Fort Lee, and now teaching community college courses five nights a week. The long story short is that as much as we LOVE Ms. Pretty, we are overcome with, well, “Irish-Catholic Guilt” over her being home alone, all day every day. We would NEVER place her in a shelter or give her away through Craigslist or other potentially risky avenues. Our dream is to find a wonderful, warm family, here in Montclair, who can take her in and will shower her with the love to that she is so very accustomed.
