For senior dogs, changes of any sort are often very difficult – but a big change can mean a completely new quality of life. Like many older dogs, Coco from Grey Face Rescue and Retirement was nervous and confused when it was her time to transition to a foster home. It was a much better environment and life for her, but at first, she could not help but be unsure about the huge change and the new world around her. There was a lot of shakiness and many baby steps to be taken on the first day in her new home, where everything was new and unknown.
Slowly, Coco began to get used to the new territory, smells, and noises. She started to explore her home, got her new name, and even a fetching new haircut. Finally, she felt comfortable enough to begin making friends with her new human family – and with their cat as well.
Today, Coco’s initial nervousness and worry are completely gone. She learned to love her foster home and family and came to know that she was perfectly safe in their care. The incredible change is visible in her every move – and it is all thanks to the kind and patient foster carers who decided to open their hearts and home to her.
