Three Pitties in the City: Meet Foster Dog Wilma!

This summer, we decided to become a bit more involved in dog rescue...so we're fostering a dog! This is Wilma from Project Rescue. Wilma was living at Mr. B. and Miss M's doggy daycare. She really loves people, so the rescue knew she would be much happier living in a home until she's adopted. Luckily, the pooches had already met her at daycare, so they were quick to welcome her into our home.
Wilma is a petite pitbull. She weighs in at a mere 40-something pounds, which is nearly half of what our pooches weigh.With her gorgeous red coloring and wrinkly face, she almost looks like a "teacup French mastiff". She is about 2 years old and full grown.Wilma gets along fantastically with other dogs. As Wilma is getting adjusted, Miss M was even kind enough to let her lay on her favorite floor pillow
and took to just laying on the floor:
Wilma was quick to hang out with Miss M in her crate. Though Miss M realized she didn't like being used as a body pillow:
And quickly reversed that situation:
And after a short breaking in period, she took back her favorite pillow, regardless if someone was already using it.

So far, Wilma is acclimating well, and we'll continue to post updates. Let us know if you, or anyone you know in the Chicagoland area, would be interested in meeting and/or adopting her.

Oh yay!! This is so great! And Wilma if freaking ADORABLE! I already love her. We're getting more involved too and it feels AMAZING. I'm so glad the dogs are all getting along so well! Good luck to you and Wilma finding her a forever home!

Oh my gosh! She is just so stinkin' cute! I can't imagine that she'd have to wait too long to find a permanent home.

We used to foster (before the inn was full) and I found it to be a very fun and rewarding experience! Enjoy your time with Ms. Wilma!

kateohkatie said...

Oh my goodness she's just so cute That look on her face...I can hardly stand it! What a lovey :-)

Patty said...

I think I'm in love! What a cutie! And Ms. M is so stinkin' cute too!!

Muchadoaboutnothing said...

Wilma is so cute! I guess Ms. M now knows what it's like to be used as someone's pillow (cue Mr. B - "See, see!"). Good luck with the fostering. I hope Wilma finds her forever home soon.

Yvonne said...

I love reading about them and seeing pics! Wilma is adorable and it's so nice that she gets along with your dogs.

susan said...

Haha! I think you two and the two pups might be sorry to see her go :) What a sweetheart. Have a great weekend.

Sophie Brador said...

There seems to be a rash of dogs sitting on dogs these days. Those pics of the girls in the box are too cute!

OMD - this is the cutest thing EVER! I love cuddle time... too bad we live WAY over here in Virginia. I bet Wilma will be very happy living with you until she finds her furever home!

She is gorgeous!!!! Love that Ms. M is being her cuddle bunny while she gets settled!!! So sweet!! Hope she finds a new home soon!!

Ohmidog! Ohmidog! Ohmidog! Wilma is SOOOOOO Most Adorable! I luvs her face! I'm guessing she's about the same size I am (I weigh 40 whole pounds) so it's kinda fun to see her size next to Miss M's. Oh, I'm so happy for Wilma that she gets to live in YOUR house with Miss M and Mr. B. It looks like everybuddy is getting along famously. My paws are crossed that she finds her Most Perfect Home That Ever Was real soon!

Wiggles & Wags,

Wilma is just eat-me-up adorable! She is tiny compared to the others, isn't she. I kind of think she's small enough to keep, don't you? ;0)

Laura and Hans said...

Wilma could be my Wilbur's 'little' sister (even though she's older). I can't imagine her not finding a home she's so cute. The crate pictures are too funny and I love it when they decide to share.

Rescued Pittie Family said...

She is just precious! And so little!
That is just awesome that Ms. M and Mr. B are so hospitable about sharing their parents and home.
Bless their hearts; you should be so proud.

Meredith Travels said...

I never realized Ms. M was so huge until pictured next to Wilma!

I hope you have a wonderful Fourth of July and that all THREE pups make it through the fireworks unscathed!

brooke said...

OMG that is too cute!
Wilma looks so tiny next to Miss M!
Love that you're doing this! I would totally want to foster an animal... though I have no self control and would end up keeping them... that's how we got Darwin afterall. ehehhe

the booker man said...

oh my word. miss wilma is a little precious thing! i love her wrinkles and those expressive eyes! if i lived anywhere near chicago, she would be coming home with me! :)
i bet mr. b is happy that miss wilma is the new body pillow for miss m? haha.

Kitty+Coco said...

What an excellent host you are Ms. M! Totally impressed that you took turns being the body pillow. Any pawrent should be proud. Wilma really does look like a mini-mastif. Very cool. It is amazing that all three pups get along so well. The size difference is of note, but doesn't seem to be an issue.
What would an extra 40 lbs of pup be to keep around? Just saying...

Mama Monster said...

I love it!!!! She definitely has a Dogue coloring and is gorgeous! She will make a wonderful family member to some lucky person! Until then, it's great that she has such a wonderful home to stay in...

Lola
ps my mommy works in rescue and says good job guys!!!

Sue said...

I love the pictures of them cuddling. It looks like they've adjusted nicely. She's a lovely dog and you'll so good to give her a place to stay while she's waiting for her family to come along.

Mr. Pip said...

She is beautiful and very petite (but not as petite as me) The first picture looks like an ad for Crate & Barrel! I think modeling may be in her future!

Your pal, Pip

dw said...

Welcome, Wilma! You sure are cute! I think it's interesting that Miss M doesn't like being used as a pillow when she does the same thing to Mr. B. So nice that all the dogs get along!

Hound Girl said...

She is adorable and so tiny, what a cutie!! Yall are going to have so much fun, I look forward to being updated.

HoundDogMom said...

Ms. Wilma is a very adorable girl. The pictures of them laying on each other are priceless, especially the last one. The Hounddogs

The Two Country Poodles & Uncle Puppy said...

That is wonderful and a foster home is the best thing ever for a dog. She is quite a lovely girl and had a lovely coat color!!! Glad everyone is getting along.

Mack said...

Wilma is BEAUTIFUL! And she weighs only ten pounds more than me!

parlance said...

Wilma is beautiful. And you are generous to make her welcome in your home.

Shauna (Fido and Wino) said...

Good for you guys! She is gorgeous- that is so great of you! :)

If you wanted you could do a separate R.O.A.R. post with just Wilma- maybe that would help to get the word out about her more?

Life With 5 Dogs said...

Wilma is very pretty girl. Are you sure you guys don't want another one? She seems to fit in perfectly with your family. I don't think you could ask for a better friendship! Thanks for Fostering we have found it to be a very rewarding experience.

honey_baby said...

Wilma, you are so pretty. If hubby says it's okay, I'd love to meet you. <3

Luci's Mama said...

Ms Wilma fits in perfectly with your pack :) Hope she finds a good home soon! I'm working on the bf to foster...he assumes that instead of fostering it'll be adopting hehe...

the body pillow pictures are my favorite :)

Nicole said...

Bah! I've been so behind reading blogs. That's great that you're able to foster a dog. I love them laying on each other. It's so nice that they all knew each other first.

Doc Sinister said...

Wilma is such a cutie! I love the pictures of her snuggling with Ms. M (and it was kind of Ms. M to give the new girl some love). She's so tiny next to your pups - I guess I didn't realize quite how large Ms. M and Mr. B were! I recently fostered my first pit as well, it's a good feeling to know you've helped out a dog in need.
