I'm fostering a beardie named Frank!

Hello crew!

I decided to help out a small business rescue in the area by taking in a beardie named Frank. Hopefully this can be a repeat thing I can do for them.

Frank is a 6 year old man. Part of his backstory was that he was in someone's breeding program. He had a 40 gallon tank with very little in it. I saw the set up it was a boring place.

Frank has a big friendly personality. He likes being held by anyone. He fears nothing. He head bobs for days when he sees a lady or another dragon. The rescue place is going to make sure he gets a permanent home where he won't be used for breeding again. He gets to be a spoiled man in his retirement

He is using Devlyn's house while she is in a smaller set up in a dark room brumating. Devlyn should have a new place all set up when she wakes up. so this set up can be for fostering. Still needs some work since I took out some of Devlyn's special items she loves I didn't want them shared with another dragon at all
Devlyn my beautiful bearded dragon, approx hatch 8/18, mine since 2/19. Kitty Greysie born 3/06. Lttle rescue Charlie the American grey tree frog, found 11/18. Lots of house plants, I like cacti and succulents.

Looks like he lucked out to get a nice upgrade! Hopefully the rescue org will be able to find a happy home for him in the long term. It's great that you are able to foster care for him in the meantime. Is fostering a common thing with the rescue you're working with?

Yes. The person who runs it can only keep 2 reptiles at a time because they have human foster children and those are the rules for how many reptiles you can have while fostering/looking to adopt human kids. So she has several people who will take in 1 or 2 dragons while she finds a permanent home for them. Seemed like a nice set up. She even will give people at a 55 gallon tank and all the lights to set up for a foster

What a great rescue your community has! Pets and children need a second chance so I'm rooting for her.
