Kody Snodgrass Memorial Foundation Inc.
We place our puppies in foster homes when they are 10 weeks old, until they are 7-8 months old. The foster home socializes the puppy and works to promote confidence, boldness and INQUISITIVENESS. This helps give our bloodhounds the extra drive to become working partners in law enforcement. Then, when its time for some serious work to begin, the puppies are returned to 832 K-9’s and they begin Boot Camp.
Please e-mail us if you are interested in becoming a foster home!
Fostering Program - Wetumpka, AL
832 K-9’s Deputy Dogs places puppies in appropriate homes and facilities to enhance their socialization process. They need to be exposed to a variety of situations, places, sounds and people, almost like ‘pre-school’. Although this is not a formal training program, it gives young bloodhounds a sense of comfort and security to begin their lives as working members of the law enforcement community.
Fostering a puppy is greatly rewarding, and extremely difficult. Rewarding, because the generous people in the foster home know that some day ‘their’ dog may help save a lost child, and difficult, because the foster family grows to love and cherish ‘their’ dog, even realizing that the puppy they help socialize will leave the security of their home for a very important job.
