Snickers is a 60 lb. 12 year old liver and white springer who just arrived at his NEESSR foster home. We know he is a sweetie - but will be assessing his needs and provide more information as soon as possible.

09/24 - Snickers' foster famliy reports that he is a "wonderful dog - he is quiet and sleeps a good deal, but is affectionate and enjoys people"! He presently goes to work with his foster dad, where he spends the day with people and with other dogs. He is defintely much more interested in the people than the dogs. He is a gentle boy who loves to be petted and is not very demanding. Snickers does need a middle of the night potty break. Otherwise he has no problems in that department. His hearing and eyesight are not great. He does hear loud noises and sometimes comes when called.

Snickers is scheduled for a vet visit to address some lumps as well as some skin issues and the arthritis in his hind end that is definitely slowing him down. We'll be working on these issues. His foster famliy 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!

If you might be interested in adopting Snickers, please check out NEESSR adoption policies and application at:

Rowdy is a very handsome 9 year old 43 lb black/white tri boy who would like to be the only dog in a family who is home a great deal. He walks nicely on a leash and has good recall. No surprise – because he always wants to be by your side! Rowdy wins the Velcro springer award. He is accustomed to being in his crate when left alone. He’ll happily clear your counters of anything edible (or not) – so care must be taken in that department.

Rowdy doesn't care for loud noises and he can be testy with other dogs, especially males. He had a seizure many years ago – and has been on phenobarbital ever since. No reports of additional seizures. A loving household that can provide Rowdy with a great deal of attention should look no further. Rowdy is looking for you.

Please see his writeup on the special needs page.

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:
