Foster Parents For Pets from page 15A That’s the case for Ruth Kraemer, 85, of south St. Louis, who adopted a beagle mix dog that Kirchhofer had fostered in 2007. “The dog, then named Alley, was rescued from a hoarder, was extremely shy, didn’t have a lot of hair because she’d had mange, and lost a lot of her teeth because she was bored and had been eating rocks,” Kirchhofer remembered. Kraemer, a widow since 1992, lost her golden retriever, Max, and cat, Miss Kitty, when both died in 2007. Kraemer applied to adopt Alley after a neighbor paid for the adoption as a birthday present.
“It was my birthday on Oct. 17 when I went to the Humane Society,” Kraemer said. “They said the dog was shy, but she jumped right up next to me on the bench I was sitting on.” Kraemer renamed the now 11-year-old dog “Allie Bella,” adding the second word of her name, which means “beautiful” in Italian. “She is the sweetest little thing, very loyal, still a little shy, but very loving,” Kraemer said. “She’s made a difference in my life. She tries my patience sometimes, but I love her to pieces.” For Kirchhofer, that’s what makes fostering worthwhile.
