You know how the most ill behaved children in the world can suddenly turn into angels when they are in a neighbor's house, school or other organization when supervised by different adults? It's like they know how to behave, what to do and not to do but yet do the exact opposite in their own homes.

Dogs can often exhibit similar behavior. The same dog that is turned over to rescue for destroying the furniture, never chews up a thing in his foster home. Many dogs are turned over to BTRNC because they are not good with children. Yet, many of these same dogs are wonderful with the children in their foster home or the children they encounter on walks and in other settings.

Is this because the dogs like it better in their foster homes or do they have more respect for their foster families or are they terrified that if they break the rules, they will be homeless again? These are the things that weigh on the Boastful Boston's mind!

Whatever the reason, we are always glad when things work out that way. Here is Tyson, adopted in 2008.

Tyson was turned over to rescue because he could not get along with other dogs. He was a perfect gentlemen in his foster home, interacting and playing well with the other dogs in his foster home. Then he was adopted out to a family who returned him stating that he was not good with children. He finally found his perfect home. His new family's update states that "Tyson is the sweetest, cuddliest, well behaved little guy I have ever had."

In his new home, Tyson loves the 3 year old neighbor and the neighborhood dogs. He walks well on a leash, plays with the cat and loves his toys. His foster Mom says that she is in love!

The morale of the story is that sometimes the perfect home equals the perfect dog. May they all find their version of perfection!
