Just like John, Katie dedicates so much of her life to ensuring that they can improve the lives of as many dogs as possible before finding them a home for the long term. She has seen the love that other owners will happily give to their canine friends, so she knows that the hard work usually pays off.
Here, we can see her taking one of their rescues to get their second round of shots. And even though dogs are messy and get fur all over the place, this couple knows that it’s ultimately a small price to pay in the large scheme of things.
Weighing Out Their Options
At first, the vet was perplexed by what he was finding in the scans and wasn’t entirely sure how to deal with Rosie at such a late point in her pregnancy. Pretty much all options were on the table, including relocating her to another rescue center, among other things.
But Katie and John would not accept these options. They were determined to give Rosie the best experience in their home and believed they had both the tools and experience to give her the care she required during this delicate period. When you consider all of the other dogs they have treated, it’s not hard to see why.
This Wasn’t Their First Rodeo
Before Rosie entered their lives, Kate and John had already fostered a remarkable 20 dogs. They had loved the canine community their entire lives and would do everything in their power to make every dog they came across comfortable and happy.
Here, we can see John hanging out with one of their past rescues, Otis. They have no problem letting their rescues feel at home, letting them have the reigns of the place and even hanging out on their bed. John jokingly mentioned how Otis took his spot and from that point onward, refused to move. And Katie is also fully dedicated…
They Know How to Help Street Dogs
With all of the experience they have built up over the years, it is clear that Katie and John have developed an in-depth knowledge of how to approach street dogs and take care of them. Up until this very day, they are still shocked as to just how many street dogs there are in their neck of the woods.
Both in the small town that they grew up in and the bigger cities surrounding them, there were plenty of stray dogs just waiting to be rescued. And all of this experience came to the surface when Rosie came into their lives. She had already been rescued, but they were desperate to take her in for the important few weeks that were coming up.
They Had Delivered Puppies Before
This wouldn’t have been the first time that Katie and John had helped a rescue deliver an entire litter of puppies. They knew the steps that needed to be taken to make the process as smooth and painless as possible for a pregnant dog.
Especially Katie, who had worked her way through the ranks ever since she started to volunteer at the local rescue center. Here, we can see one of the rescues that they helped deliver and her adorable litter of pups. And although they were thoroughly prepared to help Rosie deliver her litter, nothing could prepare them for the actual day of delivery…
