Fish fosters puppies

Phantom, an American Staffordshire Terrier mix puppy, is being fostered by guidance counselor Ms. Fish, along with his siblings Melody and Jasper, in an effort to find their “forever homes.” Ms. Fish originally brought all three dogs to school, but she only brings one at time now due to the size of each dog. She brings the dogs approximately twice a week so that they can become accustomed to human interaction. She is fostering the dogs through Little Paws of Love, a nonprofit organization.
