Rubicon came into rescue with just a few needs. She was a neglect case; she needed spaying; the spay surgery did not go well; she got infected. Her foster family stepped up to help her every step of the way. They nursed her through an extended recovery, gave her lots of love, but not a lot of slack. They could see that she was crazy smart, and knew she needed structure, love, clear expectations and training to accomplish her full potential. They gave her all of that, and she not only recovered but began to blossom. She attracted a super forever family–with two GSP savvy adults and two almost-teen dog-loving kids who can continue to give her what she needs. A big thank you to Kate and Danny for fostering Rubi so well and leading her to a terrific future.
