*Due to an unexpected change in the fosters personal situation, Fonzie is in need of an immediate new foster home. Please email megan@underdogsrescue if you are interested in fostering or adopting* Meet Fonzie!! Fonzie traveled all the way from Thailand to get to the United States! He was rescued as a puppy from the Bangkok flood in 2011 and has been lucky enough to live on an elephant sanctuary in Thailand ever since. The alternatives for dogs in Asia aren't that great, so he's been really lucky in comparison but is still so happy to have gotten the puppy lottery and scored a ticket to Colorado!
Since arriving to Colorado, he has been learning and experiencing LOTS!! He is a wonderful guy and continues to come out of his shell on a daily basis! He lives in a pretty busy home with two other dogs, two cats, two teenagers and their parents. He is super loving, but does need his people to be patient with him as he learns about all these new things around him! He loves to go on his daily walks and actually walks great on the leash (better than the resident dogs!!). He stays in his crate at night just to help him feel safe and calm and seems to be potty trained as well (BONUS!!)!!
He is going to be a very sweet treat for someone that has the patience to love on him, socialize him and teach him what life as a dog is like in Colorado!! What a treasure he is!
PS His size is awesome too at about 30 pounds!!
Underdogs Rescue has partnered up with the Elephant Nature Park in Chiang Mai, Thailand to help save some of the 400+ dogs they have living on the sanctuary. While most of these dogs have come to the park following natural disasters or from situations some of us couldn't even fathom, these dogs are full of heart and ready to begin a new life in the US with a family to love them!! More information about ENP can be found on their website here: http://www.elephantnaturepark.org/ Help us help them by fostering or adopting one or more of these sweet babies looking for a new life!
His adoption fee is only $350 but it will be no less than $700 for Underdogs to rescue each pup, so any additional donation you can muster will be infinitely appreciated. If you're interested in filling out an application for Fonzie, please email Meggan@underdogsrescue.org
