Foster Stories: Jessica and Shara
By: Hype Hounds Kennel Club and Jessica Lyle
What is does fostering a dog involve?
When you foster, you agree to take a homeless dog into your home and give him or her love, care and attention, either for a predetermined period of time or until the dog is adopted.

Shara, the legendary
From Jessica Lyle and family, the story of Shara the legendary.
This foster was our first foster through rangers reach, they named her Shara Fryer, of course we didn't want to call her that so I asked my 3 year old what we should name her, she said "airplane" so we compromised and called her Amelia for Amelia Earhart. My daughter for fell for her fast and called her "my Melia". Amelia came from a momma dog named Mystique.
They were found at a house where the mom was so malnourished all her energy went to keeping her puppies alive. Mystique spent multiple days in the hospital trying to survive her extreme malnourishment.
We had Amelia for about 2 months and honestly almost adopted her. She ended up going to an amazing family up on the Canadian border and I get updates all the time. They named her Mozzie, and I love getting all my Mozzie updates. They even sent my daughter a stuffed dog that looks like her to thank her for taking such good care of her. Her mom I believe either was just adopted or is still pending adoption.
