The Stolls told BuzzFeed News their home is “always hectic.”
They own four “forever” dogs, including the well-known pit bull duo, and are always fostering at least one puppy. They also care for former foster dogs while their owners go on vacation.
The ducklings were surrendered to the Wollongong Animal Rescue Network and the Stolls agreed to foster them.
In the end, the process of introducing the dogs to the ducklings went “totally fine.”
“We treated their introduction like we would any other foster puppy,” said the Stolls to BuzzFeed News. “All four of our dogs had different levels of interest.”
“Patty is quite a warm puppy so he acts like their hot water bottle,” the Stolls said. “He also lets them groom him and will often give them a little gentle lick.”
“Ducks are super similar to dogs,” they said. “They love their people, pack, and are very affectionate.”
“People would pay breeders thousands of dollars to have a dog like him,” they said. “And yet they are totally unaware that you can get a fantastic and sweet puppy just by visiting a shelter or rescue.”
