Dog takes 97 days to get back to her foster mother after being adopted (personal note: this happens often with dogs that have been abused or severely neglected, they get intensely attached to the foster parent they identify as their rescuer and want nobody else. I had fostered a dog given up for aggression, rehabilitated him and adopted him out TWICE and twice he was returned because he reverted to aggression toward people and other dogs but he was just fine in my house so I kept him - his name was Lucca and he was a pekepom)
