Jack is a new arrival to his NEESSR foster family. This handsome field bred boy is around 6 years old. He came to us with a history of kidney disease. He is being treated by the wonderful veterinarians at the Chelmsford Animal Hospital. It looks like his medical issues can be managed medically and we are hopeful for a good prognosis. We'll report back when we have more information.

NOTE: We are not accepting adoption applications for Jack at this time. NEESSR foster families can, and often do adopt their foster dogs. If Jack becomes available for adoption, we will update this posting.

Capone is a one year old 50 lb black & white tri ESS. Due to the constraints of Covid-19, he was not able to be socialized during his first year and he is extremely wary of new people and new situations. We expect he'll be in NEESSR foster care for a good deal of time so we can understand just what type of forever home would be the best fit for him.


NOTE: We are not accepting adoption applications for Capone at this time. NEESSR foster families can, and often do adopt their foster dogs. If Capone becomes available for adoption, we will update this posting.

UPDATE: RIVER HAS BEEN ADOPTED!

River has been with his NEESSR foster family for a short time and is adjusting very nicely. He is an adorable tiny 26 lb 2 year old boy, who had been blind since birth. He is scheduled to be neutered next week and then has a consult set up with an ophthalmologist. Wouldn't it be great if something can be done to help provide him with at least some vision!


Please see his writeup on the special needs page.

9/14/21 HARPER HAS BEEN ADOPTED!

Harper is a lovely 6 year old girl surrendered to NEESSR because she was not getting along with her doggy sisters. She made it clear she absolutely had to be the "only" dog in her home. She has been in her NEESSR foster home for a couple of weeks now - and she's decided she'll stay there. Her foster mom is in agreement. Harper has found her "forever" home!

Panda was 6 months old when NEESSR brought him into foster care this past March. He had a history of resource guarding his toys and needed to be in an adult-only home. Panda's foster worked on these issues with the guidance of a trainer and its no surprise that Panda has now been adopted by his foster dad!

7/18/21 SAMPSON HAS BEEN ADOPTED!


6/29/21 We are actively looking for an adopter for Sampson. If you might be a good fit for Sampson - please complete our adoption application (link below). If you know a family who might be a good fit for him, please share our posting. Thanks!

Sampson is a sweet and extremely handsome 42 lb 9 year old gentleman! He has been in NEESSR foster care for about 2 months now, so we’ve learned a lot about him. Sampson has quite a bounce in his step and insists on long daily walks. He loves car rides and he LOVES attention from his people. He is a snuggly, cuddly affectionate boy! However Sampson does NOT like to share his home with other dogs. Sampson has a history of skin issues which are now controlled by only feeding him a prescription dog food. Sampson also relies on medication to help him control some anxiety.

PLEASE NOTE – REQUIREMENTS FOR ADOPTING Sampson:
***He MUST be the only dog in the home. He would not be a good host for doggy visitors. Sampson is unknown with cats, but we prefer to err on the side of caution and place him in a home without cats also.
*** He MUST be kept on the prescription dog food and current medication..


If you already are on our adoption waiting list and are interested in learning more about Sampson please email neessr@gmail.com. Otherwise please read about our adoption policies and then complete our application. https://essrescue.org/adoptionprocess.html

4/8/21 UPDATE: Tubby is scheduled for orthopedic surgery to address knee issues (see special needs page) These surgeries require a long recuperation period. Tubby will be with his NEESSR foster family during this time period.

3/5/21 UPDATE: Happy to report Tubby has acclimated nicely to his foster home. He is a sweet and somewhat shy boy - but absolutely must be the only dog in the home. Tubby exhibits issues with his knees and hips. This will be thoroughly evaluated by an orthopedic specialist at Tufts in April. Its quite possible he'll benefit from surgery which would require a lengthy recuperation period. We'll know more and report more after the upcoming consult.

1/23/21 This very sweet 5 year old boy recently arrived at his NEESSR foster home. We will provide more info about Tubby once he has been in foster care a bit longer.

NOTE: We are not accepting adoption applications for Tubby at this time. NEESSR foster families can, and often do adopt their foster dogs. If Tubby becomes available for adoption, we will update this posting.
