Lilly wants to say hi! She’s our latest addition to NEESSR’s available springers. Lilly is a 7 year old black/white snuggle bug that wants to be your lap warmer. She’s not good with other dogs or cats in her house so she’ll need to be your only shadow. Lilly has been recuperating from gum surgery to remove a small mass, but has been cleared to go to a new home. She’s pretty much a normal springer without much training, she does know sit and loves treats. She also likes walks, pets, a back scratch, chew toys, and an occasional belly rub. Lilly would love to be running around your yard!

Hi I am Manny! I am an 11 year young little cutie. I'm active, and very sweet. I hate to brag but, I'm told by everyone I meet that I'm just absolutely adorable. I love people and kids are ok. I like other dogs. I don't know much about cats. I even like baths! I will melt your heart with the power of my amazing eye contact and sweet little face. And when I put my paw on your knee you will see that resistance is futile!
While I am pretty good on a leash and like walks but by far my favorite thing of all is to curl up on the couch and settle in to watch a good movie, popcorn a plus! So if you're looking for adorable, lovable with a dash of swagger… I'm your guy! Do I smell popcorn?

Now from his foster Mom...yes, Manny is a charmer! He's a beautiful little 38 pound boy. He's very agile and active and can be a little hyper. He needs help calming down sometimes. He's not a fan of being crated. He is hard of hearing and maybe developing a cataract in his left eye but he sure seems to see well enough. But because of his hearing I've started working with him with hand signals and light touch and he responds very well. He doesn't seem to particularly like any toys. He can be a food monster and he will definitely let you know when he wants something or your attention with the big loud bark! When he does get excited he tends to bark but it's not hard to redirect that. He needs to learn a little patience in a few bits of etiquette but he's coming along nicely. He's actually a fun dog to work with. He is very interactive and really does want to please. He has some separation anxiety and has moments of anxiety if he thinks he's lost sight of you. If you walk out of the room and he doesn't hear you he can panic when he realizes you're gone. So give them a little touch with your hand for fair warning. Someone who wishes to take this little sweetie in and give him all the TLC he deserves will be blessed with his love and an adorably sweet companion.

Manny has many lumps and bumps that are with the exception of one deemed to be non-dangerous lipomas. He will be undergoing surgery on one lump that has been determined to be a mast cell tumor and it will be removed hopefully back to safe margins and once he has a clean bill of health will be looking for that couch to curl up on maybe with you!

11/14 - Manny is ready now for a forever home after having his tumor taken care of. His foster mom's impressions after having him awhile.

Manny is a love bug and his greatest priority is human companionship. He has a good deal of separation anxiety. His new home should have someone home most of time especially in the first weeks as well as someone patient and knowledgeable in working with this issue. In time it should resolve.
His Second priority is food. I believe he has been quite spoiled in the past and can be quite obsessive and very vocal when he wants food. I also feel that he was under fed and so he seems to be in a constant state of hungry. He can be underfoot while cooking and a bit of a counter surfer, word to the wise. So again patience Will be a virtue that will go along way with Manny. But he is a basically submissive little guy and he will yield to training and new behavior well.
Manny can also be hyper yet he's not really an outdoor dog and for a springer he doesn't seem to require a lot of exercise. But he will walk happily on a leash (best on Easywalk harness) with his people and equally as happily settle down for a nap upon return. I have not yet found a toy that he really likes. He is good with other dogs but I don't think that is a necessity as he is truly focused on people. Although the right canine companion could help in regards to the separation anxiety. He loves visitors and strangers. And I believe it would be good with older children. I honestly think he has what it takes to be a therapy dog. He loves to snug up on the couch, he loves to curl up at your feet in bed. He is a readers delight as he loves to cuddle when you pull out a good book. As he is a little hyper in the car, I crate him whenever he travels with me. We are still working of his basic skills. Anyone interested in Manny should know that he is hard of hearing so body language and hand signals are important.
But all in all honestly he is one of the cutest and sweetest dogs I've ever met. And there is lots of love in this little 36 pound dog. Cupid never had a more affective a little cherub than Manny!

Charlie is a 21 month old 45lb. black/white springer who came into foster care in July because his owner couldn’t handle his separation anxiety. He is a beautiful, healthy, smart boy who is eager to learn and loves to play and swim. He will need an adopter willing to work with a behaviorist/trainer to help him. Charlie must be the only dog/pet in an adult only home. He will need his human to be with him almost all of the time, so a work-from-home, stay-at-home, or retired adopters may be best. If you have the time and desire to work with a dog with these challenges, Charlie needs you.

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

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.”

RUSTY HAS BEEN ADOPTED!
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!

October 2015 - ROWDY HAS BEEN ADOPTED!

ROWDY WANTS TO BE THE ONLY DOG WITH A FAMILY THAT IS HOME A LOT! HE IS READY TO GO AND WAITING FOR HIS FOREVER HOME:
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.

4/25/15 CHLOE IS LOOKING FOR HER FOREVER HOME! She has been with her foster family for over a month now – and has made tremendous progress. Its time to start from scratch in describing Chloe, because her foster family now sees a new and more confident dog.

Chloe is a super sweet 38 lb 8.5 year old black/white tri springer. She is truly a cuddlebug – but her foster dad warns you that she is a bed hog! She loves to play “Fetch the Ball”, returning happily, eager to play again. She walks nicely on a leash and has good recall. Not surprising because the most important thing in Chloe’s life (besides food) is being close to her people.

Although she is extremely loving and affectionate with her people, she does not do well with other dogs. We are looking for an adult-only adoptive family who is home a lot. No other pets in the home are a must! A retired person or someone who works from home and can spend time with Chloe need look no further for the perfect companion

Ruben is a two-year-old boy who came to NEESSR two months ago - an exceptionally timid dog. His foster family has been diligently working to help him overcome his fears and develop confidence. At this time he is comfortable and loved in his foster home. We are happy to announce that Ruben has found his permanent home - and will be adopted by his NEESSR foster family. We'd like to share their thoughts. Here is "Ruben's Story"

Ruben is still a very sensitive dog who needs a slow introduction to people, dogs and things in his environment, but his progress thus far has been astounding! His gentle and endearing nature makes him a wonderful companion to his family and housemate, Gemma, a 2-year-old golden retriever. During Ruben’s first few weeks in foster care he often hid in the yard and had to be coaxed into the house; once inside he stayed in his crate or retreated to a quiet place in the house away from the family. When confronted with a situation he was unable to handle, Ruben crouched on the floor and froze in place.

With the help of a trainer and the support of NEESSR members several training techniques were employed to help him approach family members and ease his fears, which were not necessarily predictable. Despite his fearful nature, it was amazing that he weathers thunderstorms and the lawnmower noise with barely a notice.

After 4 weeks, Ruben was finally adventuresome enough to pick up his first dog toy and a whole new world opened up for him! The emergence of playful behavior led to modified games of fetch and find toys and frequent romps in the garden with Gemma. As he feels more safe in his home, the fearful behaviors he exhibits are diminishing. Ruben is growing in confidence when faced with visits from friends and family, to include three grandchildren. Everyone is respectful of Ruben’s space and he able to approach guests on his terms in slow and cautious manner, even to the point of climbing into a lap from time to time. His progress outside of the home is slow, but continual. Ruben is still unsuccessful at leaving the house without Gemma as a buffer on his walks in the neighborhood and local park. Ruben still needs time and a great deal more training, but judging from the past few weeks he’s well on his way to many more tail wagging adventures.

Colin is a 9-year-old 43 lb boy. Because of his high energy level, Colin would do well in a family with teenagers, but not younger children.

Intelligent, Athletic, Endearing describes the cutest Springer ever brought into NEESSR care! That’s our Colin. Recovered from his surgery and given a complete bill of health from our veterinarian, Colin has shown us that he is ready for his next big adventure. A wonderful forever home with an active family that enjoys walks and active playtime would be Colin’s preference. Showing off his intelligence, Colin has a wide understanding of human language. Eager to please with a willingness to learn he responds well to direction. He has a great ability to learn any trick.

Being an energetic dog, Colin is not one to sleep all day and be still all night. As an older but still very active 9 yr old, this boy can keep up with his 6 yr old foster brother in the play yard for sure. Like any energetic athlete he does need his daily exercise. Walks and playing ball are a must. After a round of active play, Colin can be content to lie at your feet when you are working on the computer or relaxing watching TV. He will engage in any activity that includes a human and of course a ball. With his own people to love, and proper attention and direction Colin would make a great companion for a family.

Cocoa is a five year old boy who just arrived at his NEESSR foster home. He is presently at the vets to get a complete physical and also for neutering. He has a history of stomach problems that we will address while he is in foster care. Until yesterday Cocoa was pretty much of an "outside" dog. His foster family will be working on helping him become an "inside" dog. We expect it will take quite a bit of time to get him acclimated to living in a house as well as getting to the root of his stomach issues so this boy can be on his way to his forever home.

06/09 - Cocoa has been in his foster home for almost two weeks now. Here is what he has to say: Cocoa is my name and playing is my game! I could play fetch with a ball or toy all day. I like to go for walks and smell everything. I like to have my head and back scratched and to have my fur brushed. I’ve had an issue with my stomach, but my foster mom and vet are helping me and I am getting better everyday. When I feeling 100% - my foster mom will be able to tell everyone lots more about me and then I can be adopted!
