It's not a secret that fostering doggos is a tough job. It's easy to get attached to doggos that you spend such quality time with and exert effort caring for, but it's also part of the gig. It is understood that fostering a dog is intended to be for as short of a time frame as possible, until an adoptive parent is found for said doggo.
Well, one couple had a rather uncomfortable experience with their future dogs' foster. And you could certainly say that unpleasantry followed. OP expresses frustration with the fact that the woman fostering the dogs that they intend to adopt, and the paperwork has been filled and the payments have been made, practically begs to keep the dogs. Now, we do feel sympathy for this person, but she had to have known that this is the whole point of fostering, right? So that the doggos will be adopted into loving homes? Sighs. It's a tough one.
The contract is already sighned, the payments are already processed, the only thing that's stopping OP and OP's SO from scooping these doggos up already is a scheduled meeting time. That's it.
We have to agree, this behavior is not normal. This could mean that OP's foster is just not a good match for the foster program, either way it should definitely been further investigated. It would be just unnecessary for this to happen again to another doggo seeking couple or individual!
