Snickers is a 12 year old 57 lb liver and white ESS. He has now been with his foster family for close to 2 months – and he is doing great! Although definitely a senior gentleman, with time Snickers has become much more perky, showing his sweet and funny personality. Snickers' foster family reports that he is a "wonderful dog". He accompanies his foster dad to work every day, where he hangs out with lots of people and other dogs. He is definitely much more interested in the people than the dogs. He is a gentle boy who loves to be petted and is not very demanding. His hearing and eyesight are not great. He does hear loud noises and sometimes comes when called.

Snickers has allergy-related skin issues that are being addressed. Its likely the allergies are environmental and will need ongoing monitoring and control. He has numerous fatty tissue lumps that pose no threat. We’ve started him on meds to help with the arthritis in his hind end. His foster family reports that, despite the arthritis, Snickers does manage to participate in the sport of counter surfing!

Snickers would do best with a family that can spend a lot of time with him in a home without stairs to climb. Of course, his adopter would have to be willing to work on medical issues that are expected in senior dogs as well. This old boy has a lot of love to give!

Please see his writeup on the special needs page.

Grady is a 46 lb black and white senior springer boy. We are estimating his age to be ten - but its just a guess. He was found wandering as a stray and brought to an animal shelter. The shelter folks gave him his name and took great care of him until NEESSR placed him in foster care.

Grady is a very sweet boy who needed a fair amount of medical attention.

Please see his writeup on the special needs page.

Ozzie! Ozzie is a 5 year old 49 lb liver & white springer boy who came to us here at NEESSR because of some challenging behaviors he exhibited in his prior home. He has been in his foster home now for a few weeks and was recently treated to a session with a canine behaviorist. At her recommendation, Ozzie will be going to obedience training to help overcome his reactive protective behavior. He needs a lot of basic training work so when he displays unwanted behaviors he can be more easily redirected to acceptable behaviors. His foster dad reports “Ozzie is a very sweet, loyal companion with very nice house manners. No destructive behavior, counter- surfing limited to leafy green vegetables, completely fine when left free in the home, fine with visitors, and completely house trained, even the first day in a new home. He loves his people and affection.”

Ozzie - Adopted!

Ozzie did very well in his basic skills classes and is ready to go!
***Looking for an adult-only family with no other dogs to adopt Ozzie. They must be committed to ongoing positive training to continue the work we’ve started. Ozzie will make a wonderful addition to the right family. A foster-to-adopt situation would be considered.

If you are interested in Ozzie, please check out NEESSR adoption policies and application at:

This handsome 48 lb boy is 8 years old. His foster family reports that he is a very nice happy-go-lucky guy, interested in everything and he has a very sweet demeanor. Rusty seeks attention and affection from his family. He walks nicely on a leash, enjoys car rides and loves his food! He is crate trained.

Rusty has been exhibiting undesireable behaviors towards another male dog in his foster home. Just to be on the safe side, Rusty will only be available for adoption to a family with no other dogs in the home. Whereas this boy does crave attention, an ideal adopter would be home a good deal of the time. If this describes you - Rusty could be your springer! If you already have an approved adoption application on file with NEESSR, please call your adoption coordinator. If not, please complete our application found at:
