A Timeline of Falling in Love

One woman’s journey to find love. First, with her foster dog, next with her life partner!

March 2014 (when it all began)

Morgan, now Ramona was rescued from a southern shelter, and found on by a young woman named Emily. First, Emily is slotted to take home a different foster dog, but she ends up with this big pup: Morgan. Emily becomes her devoted foster mom, facilitated by our volunteer Megan Penney for Angel Capone Pitbull Rescue.

April 2014

Foster mom Emily (a law student) is contemplating adopting her foster dog. She posts in our “Foster Forum” to ask for advice from her foster community. Emily receives numerous responses to help her weigh the pro’s and con’s of this important decision. We all know how this one turns out…!

Dear Fellow Fosters: Should I Adopt My Foster Pup?

Emily writes after seeing our blog post: “Do you know the Beverly Cleary books? Growing up my best friend and I always wanted dogs named Ramona and Beezus after the characters. It was perfect because I was already calling her “Mo” so it’s not too different.”

Ramona and Emily were featured as the “Photo of the Day” on our website!
