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.

Dexter is a 10 year old boy who has been in NEESSR foster care for a couple of months now. When he first came to us, bloodwork indicated some possible medical issues. He was treated to a wide variety of testing to rule out anything serious. (see his "special needs" posting for details.) This took quite a bit of time!

We are learning about Dexter's temperament as well as his likes/dislikes. Thus far we know he generally ignores cats and tolerates calm dogs his size or smaller. He does not like to be around larger dogs or excitable dogs who want to engage with him. Dexter CANNOT be around children - at all! He loves being with his people, but unlike many springers he really needs his space. He enjoys being petted, but not crowded. This boy will need a quiet adult-only home.


NOTE: We are not accepting adoption applications for Dexter at this time. His foster family is working with him presently to get a better understanding of just what Dexter's needs are. When Dexter becomes available for adoption we will update this posting.

Please see his writeup on the special needs page.

11/28/21 UPDATE: CHARLIE HAS BEEN ADOPTED!

Charlie is a recent arrival at his NEESSR foster home. He is a handsome, easygoing and playful 7 year old boy. Charlie has a small mass on his shoulder that will be checked out next month. We'll provide an update at that time. In the meantime he is transitioning well into his foster home


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

11/15 - Happily it turned out the mass on Charlie's shoulder is a cyst and nothing to worry about.

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!

12/24/21 CAPONE HAS BEEN ADOPTED BY HIS FOSTER FAMILY!

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.

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.
