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. If he were to be boarded he'd need to be kept separate from other dogs. 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 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..

3/5/21 UPDATE: We have been addressing some of Duffy's medical and behavioral issues while in foster care. He has a history of skin and ear infections. There has been improvement but his springer ears are still causing him trouble. He is scheduled to be neutered very soon. We've also had a consult with a veterinary behaviorist as Duffy is an anxious boy who has trouble controlling his vocalizing. If there was a contest for extreme barking - he'd be the gold medalist.


2/9/21 Duffy is a senior boy who thinks he's a pup! He does not like to "chill" - he's a boy on the go! He has just been in his NEESSR foster home for a few days. We'll be addressing some medical issues as well as getting to know more about his needs.

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

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.

Please see his writeup on the special needs page.

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.

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!
