SPRINGER FOSTER PARENTS NEEDED!!

Do you have room in your home and your heart for a Springer in need? We pay for necessary veterinary expenses, including heartworm medications and flea prevention. We ask that you provide food, toys, lots of love, a kind hand, and a safe  home in which a Springer can live temporarily while we seek that perfect Forever Home for him or her.

We do not have a shelter or kennel, and our ability to continue rescuing depends on whether we have a place for the dogs to stay when they are released to our rescue group. We exist entirely on donations and adoption fees, so it is difficult for us to board an animal in a kennel or vet's office since most foster dogs are in our care for two to six weeks.

If you give a rescue dog a temporary home, not only will you save a life, you will vastly improve your own. People who love animals live longer, healthier lives and you'll redecorate your home with fur for free!

If you will consider helping our dogs, please fill out our Foster Home Application or contact your state's coordinator

Thank you for helping in any way you can.

Interested in Max and Abbey? Then read about bonded pairs and the benefits of adopting these special best friends.
Max and Abbey are seven years old, black and white, and very nice dogs. They aren’t litter mates, but have been together since they were pups. Abbey is six months older. Max gets anxious when Abbey isn’t around. He is a goofy boy who loves to run outside and fetch his ball. Abbey is calmer, although she enjoys her Frisbee.

These two have received good care, but their owner is forced to relinquish them because of a grandchild with severe allergies.

Max and Abbey are house trained and use a dog door. They are great with children and other dogs, but they don’t get along with cats. They are used to sleeping with their humans. Max has had allergies and ear infections in the past, but since switching his food to salmon and pea he is doing well.

The ideal Forever Home for Max and Abbey is one with an active family and a decent-sized yard that will keep these two beauties together.

If you are interested in giving them a true Forever Home, please contact their coordinator.

Please read the Adoption FAQ and get an Adoption Application approved before inquiring about Max.

Hi! My name is Buddy, and I am looking for a new Forever Home. I hope it's one with a large yard and either another dog or some children to play with. I am a typical Springer who enjoys being with people of all ages. There are lots of other Springers at my foster home, and I enjoy hanging out with them. When I first came here, I was very scared, and I shied away from everything. Now, though, there is something new to learn everyday, and that is lots of fun! I love belly rubs and hugs, I enjoy being brushed, I think car rides are nice, and I really, really like playing with balls and other toys that I can chase. I must admit, though, that I very rarely bring back what you throw for me.

If you think I could be your new snuggle Buddy, please contact my foster mom. I’ll be waiting at the gate to meet you!

Springer kisses,
Buddy


From Buddy's foster mom: Buddy is so eager to please! He is a gentle soul with a true Springer spirit. He is an extremely loving and well-mannered boy. Like most Springers, he is active, so he needs a large, securely fenced yard to play in. He would dearly love a family with older children to be friends with. He is very calm in the house, and he loves to find comfy places to take his naps. He is housetrained and knows basic commands such as Sit, Stay, Wait, Come, and Down. In spite of this, it would be beneficial for Buddy and his new family to participate in at least one obedience class. Buddy is a shy and slightly submissive boy. An obedience class will increase his self-confidence and let him know what is expected of him in his new Forever Home. Buddy will thrive in a household with another non-alpha dog for companionship. However, if someone is home most of the time, he will be just fine as an only dog. He is up to date on all his shots, is microchipped and heartworm negative, and has been neutered.

Anyone interested in giving Buddy his new Forever Home must realize that in order for him to become a wonderful companion, it is absolutely necessary to include him in all phases of the family’s life. Buddy will enjoy any and all activities as long as his people are near him. If this loving and adorable Springer tugs at your heart, please have an approved application on file and then contact us at the email address below to meet your new best friend.

Please read the Adoption FAQ and get an Adoption Application approved before inquiring about Buddy.

Interested in Schecky and Emma? Then read about bonded pairs and the benefits of adopting these special best friends.
Meet Schecky and Emma, our new senior bonded pair! Emma and Schecky have been constant companions since Schecky was a puppy. Schecky, our English Springer Spaniel and Emma, a German Shorthaired Pointer, love to play together and find comfort in each other's companionship. While they are bonded, they are comfortable being in separate rooms.

Both dogs are affectionate and loving and seek their people for attention, without being unduly clingy. Both dogs like to cuddle, especially Schecky who loves to curl up on the sofa with his people. Given the opportunity, they would both be happy to snuggle in bed and keep you warm!

Schecky and Emma have great house manners, are trained to Sit, Come and Stay, are doggy-door trained and settle quickly in the house. They are great with other dogs, ignore the cats and are good with small children. Emma has been known to occasionally counter surf. They both like to play with and carry small, soft toys around the house. Emma likes to warm up in front of the fire and peacefully watch the flames.

Both dogs are healthy for their ages. Emma has a small fatty tumor above her left eye for which her vet recommends no treatment. Schecky has some arthritis in his hips and occasionally will limp on his right rear leg. We manage that with an occasional anti- inflammatory pill and regular joint supplements.

These loving dogs would make a wonderful addition to any family looking for loyal, loving companions who enjoy occasional playful romps. If you think you are the right family for this lovely pair, please let us know!

Please read the Adoption FAQ and get an Adoption Application approved before inquiring about Schecky.

Rocky is a five-year-old gorgeous liver-and-white male looking for his Forever Home. Health issues within his family had them turning to ESRA for help.

Rocky is a high-energy boy who needs lots of exercise, but is also as sweet and cuddly as can be. He wants more than anything to please his human and likes snuggle time on the couch if allowed. Rocky has a tendency to be the alpha, so he will need a firm, loving adoptive home that will set boundaries for him. Rocky could live with another dog as long as that dog is secure enough to stand up for themselves but won’t try to be alpha over Rocky. No cats for this boy, as his prey drive kicks into high gear when he sees them. Rocky will also need a home with older children.

Rocky is house trained, neutered and up to date on all preventative vaccinations. He prefers not to be crated. Rocky has hunting experience and is very proud to show off his skills at retrieving. The perfect home for Rocky would give him the best of both worlds where he could be a beloved family member but also have time working with his human. We think that Rocky would quickly take to agility or rally training. He also may enjoy running with his new family.

If you would like to meet Rocky, please fill out an adoption application today.

Please read the Adoption FAQ and get an Adoption Application approved before inquiring about Rocky.

Charlie is an adorable, small Springer-Cocker mix. He is quite young and will require some dedication to training and sticking with a routine. Charlie really likes his crate, so that should help a lot. He is mastering the Gentle Leader and is getting quicker with Sit. Like any Springer, he loves being with his people. Cuddling is his specialty. With some love and a little training, this sweetie pie is going to charm your socks off!

Charlie loves his toys and especially likes to chase thrown toys -- all day, every day. He’s a super happy boy, as his tail wags constantly. Even more than his toys, Charlie loves his walks. There are never too many walks in a day for him. He would be an awesome buddy for anyone who likes to walk, jog or hike. He’s a joy on the leash and enjoys dabbling in exploration along the way. He has a soft mouth with his toys and will drop them on request, but only so you can throw them for him again with his billy-goat leaping abilities. He may even enjoy agility training. His foster mom says: He’s so fun to watch. I just shake my head and smile.

This charming boy is current on his vaccines, neutered, microchipped and ready to go! He was heartworm positive when he first came to ESRA, but has gone through treatment and is doing very well.

Charlie would prefer not to have to share your love and attention with another dog or cat. However, in return, he will shower you with love and affection. He is great around most people, but small children may make him anxious.

If you’re looking for a smart, incredibly lovable companion in a small package, then charming Charlie may be just the guy for you.

Please read the Adoption FAQ and get an Adoption Application approved before inquiring about Charlie.

Liam is ready for adoption! Despite his past, he is the sweetest, cutest and happiest Springer boy and loaded with Springer energy. When he arrived, he weighed a mere thirty-two pounds and was completely emaciated due to a severe intestinal parasite infestation. His condition was absolutely heartbreaking.

We had to put fifteen pounds on him before we could neuter him. Once he recovered, he then had to endure heartworm treatment. His road to recovery has been long and tough. He is finally a healthy forty-seven pounds with a gorgeous, dark rich and thick shiny coat -- a far cry from what he was when he came into our program.

Liam is amazing with other dogs. He would very much enjoy a young playmate in his Forever Home. He is a bit of a "diamond in the rough" with the potential to be the most wonderful family member. He has come such a long way thus far, but he will require obedience training to make him a well-behaved member of the family. He is housetrained and crate trained. He would be great with older children. He is unknown with cats.

Liam needs LOTS of time and room to run in a safe and enclosed yard. Of course, if we could find him a home with some property, that would be ideal. We would like to find him a stay-at-home or work-at-home family where he can enjoy a tremendous amount of love and attention. He's an excellent passenger in the car and is always up for an adventure. He is very well-socialized with everyone, so you can take him anywhere.

Liam is now healthy and very strong. He is heartworm free, has no more parasites, current on his vaccinations, neutered and microchipped for safekeeping.

If you're ready for a high-energy pup and will commit to working with him, please contact his Case Manager.

Please read the Adoption FAQ and get an Adoption Application approved before inquiring about Liam.

Handsome Henry is searching for the most wonderful home in the world! He was adopted four years ago, yet recent changes in his adopters’ lives forced them to return Henry to us.

Henry is one of the most loving and affectionate boys you have ever met. He's vivacious, happy and always wearing a smile. He is devoted and loyal to his people and simply wants to be loved. He is the most lovable snuggler ever! He's full of energy, more like a five-year-old Springer boy.

Because he can be somewhat anxious, Henry will require an adopter who will offer him good daily exercise, rules, routine and stability, and lots of time. Henry's been through a lot after losing two families in his life. Henry does have his limitations requiring an adult home and he needs to be the only dog. We prefer to adopt him to a previous Springer owner.

Henry is lean and fit and very healthy. His senior blood panel came back flawless and his teeth were just cleaned. He his heartworm negative, current on vaccines and microchipped.

If you are all that Henry needs and deserves, please email his Case Manager.

Please read the Adoption FAQ and get an Adoption Application approved before inquiring about Henry.

Are you looking for a sidekick to hang out with? Please meet Columbo! Don't let his gentle, laid back nature fool you. He's resting up for his next adventure!

Columbo is intelligent, curious and loves to go to work with his foster dad every day. He is well behaved and knows basic commands. This fun, active boy would enjoy a daily walk or hike. Want to play ball? Columbo does!

Columbo would be content as an only dog or with another dog who gives him his space. He ignores cats and would probably do best in a home without children. He is house trained and loves his crate. He is friendly, outgoing and enjoys seeing new places.

Up-to-date on shots, microchipped, neutered and heartworm negative, our freckle-faced boy is ready to start the next chapter in his life. Let the fun begin!

Gorgeous Baxter is the epitome of what you're looking for in a Springer. He's an active Springer who loves to play. He's a sweet boy who loves to cuddle. Like all Springers, he just can't get enough attention!

When Baxter arrived in ESRA's care, he was in pretty rough shape: underweight, horrible UTI, ear infections and he tested heartworm positive. His foster mom has lovingly watched him blossom into a healthy boy with clear eyes and a soft, shiny coat. He has a big appetite and tons of energy. Baxter's hearing and vision are keen, so he doesn't miss a thing. He's not a barker but will let you know when he needs to go out.

This active boy needs room to run. His foster mom takes him on two long walks and a few short walks daily which is barely enough. He is very strong, but they have been working on manners. He understands Halt, Sit, Stay, Heel, No and Off. He's a quick study and is very food driven, which would be ideal for clicker training.

Baxter doesn't know a stranger. He loves everyone he meets, including other dogs and children. He enjoys greeting new friends on his walks and visiting new places. This cuddle bug would enjoy lying next to you on the sofa or in your bed. He does have his own bed where he collects toys. He's gentle with his toys and enjoys showing them to you. If you throw it for him he will bring it back to play some more!

If you have a lot of love in your heart and can provide the exercise that Baxter needs, please send us your application today!

Meet our delightful and adorable freckled-face girl, Meggie! Meggie was born May 2011. Her human dad recently passed, leaving Meggie with nowhere to go. We're told she loves to "two step" anytime she hears music.

Meggie has the most lovely and gentle disposition. She is a typical needy Springer and then some! Other than chasing squirrels all day, nothing makes Meggie happier than to be snuggled up to you as closely and tightly as possible. She's full of energy, needing lots of time in the yard, good long walks and/or jogs. In fact, she would really enjoy a doggy door so she can go in and out whenever she chooses. She loves card rides, she's very outgoing and she adores children. Meggie knows a couple of basic commands, but would benefit from additional training.

Meggie does get possessive of her toys with other dogs and gets annoyed when other dogs are receiving attention. Therefore, we think Meggie would be very happy being an only dog in the home. Having said that, she would love doggy play dates or dog parks. She especially enjoys romping and wrestling with the boys!

Meggie is very healthy and at an ideal weight of forty-three pounds. She's current on all her vaccinations and tested negative for heartworms. She is, of course, microchipped as well.

Meggie's world has been turned upside down. If you are a perfect match for all of Meggie's needs, please contact her foster home.

Meet Oliver, our big liver-and-white fieldie boy who loves to play, play, play! Oliver enjoys retrieving the ball and playing hide and seek with his toys. He loves running in the park or taking leisurely walks. He needs a large yard where he can play or someone who is dedicated to an exercise routine. He also loves the water! 

Oliver is house trained and knows how to use a doggy door.  He is an only dog, but does play well with other dogs and is friendly with cats.  He enjoys meeting new people and is good with children. Oliver has only used a crate a few times, including travel during a plane ride. He currently stays in the house outside of a crate during the day and does well with no accidents or destructive issues. He also rides well in the car.  

Oliver is neutered, on heartworm prevention, microchipped and current on his shots. He is a big boy at sixty-five pounds and has a medium coat length that is easy to maintain. 

Oliver will bark when the doorbell rings to alert you, but he's friendly with visitors.  On rare occasions, he is a little frightened in a thunderstorm, but he will usually just get closer to you or lay under a coffee table. He is such a sweet, calm and quiet boy.

If you think Oliver would be the perfect fit for your family and lifestyle, please send us your application today.

Thinking about bringing Sofia or another wonderful Senior Springer into your family? Read why rescuing Senior Springers is a top priority for ESRA.
Meet our beautiful senior girl, Sofia. She was found as a stray, although the shelter believes her owner was the one who turned her in. Her condition was appalling -- her coat was matted tightly and painfully to her skin as well as being urine soaked. She was stained from head to toe, her eyes weeping and she was bone thin. The shelter was kind enough to reach out to us to get Sofia immediate help.

When she arrived, we found the sweetest, most timid Springer who clearly had a rough life. Neglect was apparent, but we started seeing some signs of abuse as well. We believe she lived in a very small space, perhaps a cage or crate. Slowly, she has come out of her shell and all that beauty inside is starting to shine. She still does tuck her head on occasion when you reach out to pet her.

She tested positive for heartworms, yet her lungs looked fine and heart sounded strong. Given her age, we opted not to treat her but, instead, give her a monthly dose of Ivermectin. She was sedated to have a couple of growths removed and give her a much-needed dental. Sofia was also incontinent when she arrived. We finally have that managed with a couple of different meds. She also suffered from allergies, but is under control completely with a pill each day. She has gained a few pounds along with muscle mass. She is a whole new girl: running around and occasionally jumping up on you with excitement. Hew new family will need to continue with a high-quality diet, daily fish oils, Apoquel for allergies along with her incontinence meds.

Sofia is the easiest girl to care for. She absolutely wants to be with you all the time, she loves to snuggle and she loves her toys. She would very much enjoy daily strolls and car rides as often as possible! She is always raring to go anywhere in the car with you!

Sofia fares well with other dogs and really enjoys them, but she can get jealous on occasion about sharing the love. We think she would prefer to be an only dog in the home, but could share a home with just the right dog. She is a very gentle soul and would be good with older children.

Our seniors need us the most -- their love is eternal. Please email her foster family if you would like Sofia to be "your girl."

My name is Mari! I am a petite, field-bred pup who is about twelve months old. I am hoping to find a Forever Family that can teach me the ropes and give me lots of love and exercise.

Let me tell you a bit about myself. I was surrendered to a local shelter by my original family who decided I needed more than they could give. I am happy to say that they took good care of me while I was with them, as I am very healthy without any doggie diseases or parasites. I am up to date on all of my vaccinations and I will be spayed very soon.

My foster parents have taught me how to take care of my business outdoors (at least most of the time!). I love to play with their other Springer children. I haven’t met another dog or person I don’t like, although I haven’t met a cat as of yet. I sleep all night in my very own crate in my foster parents’ bedroom without making a peep. I am trying to learn not to counter surf, jump on people who come to visit and how to walk on a leash. I still have some work to do in those departments, though.

My foster parents tell me I am precious and that I should find a wonderful Forever Home in no time at all! I don’t want to be picky, but my perfect home would have a big backyard to play in with another dog or two. I need parents who are very active and willing to take the time to help me learn how to be a good dog all of the time. Might that be you?

Let me know - I'm waiting!

Oreo is everything a great companion should be – he’s handsome, smart, sweet and playful.  He knows the basic commands: Sit, Down and Stay.  He will look into a crate but has no desire to go into one.  He freely roams his foster home and has not had any problems.  He is house trained and will go to the back door when he needs to go out.  He gets along well with his Springer foster sister who tries to remind him daily that she is the boss. 

Oreo is a great watch dog and alerts you if an animal or person gets anywhere close to the house. He does sometimes get on the furniture, but will get down when asked.  He adores going for rides in the car, but needs to keep his seatbelt on so he doesn’t have too much fun playing in the car.

Oreo’s foster mom has this to say:

He is super sweet and cute.  He is a great dog and we enjoy fostering him.  He does display the typical Velcro Springer traits - he has the wiggle butt and he likes to follow his people around everywhere.  Oreo sleeps on a dog bed at night and naps in front of the window during the day.  He gets along great with his ten-year-old human foster sister.  Oreo needs some basic training to help him learn to walk on a leash.  Obedience training would serve him well in this area, because he loves to go for walks and does well at the dog park.


Oreo is a very healthy and happy boy.  While he may be about seven years old, he acts like a toddler with his enthusiasm and playfulness.  Oreo would prefer a home where either his owner is home most of the time, or a home with another dog so he won’t get lonely.  He’s current on all his vaccinations and is microchipped.  He is ready now to go to his Forever Home.

Please read the Adoption FAQ and get an Adoption Application approved before inquiring about Oreo.

Hello, Peyton is my name! I’m told I was named after a very nice volunteer who rescued me from the shelter.  That was a scary place and I never want to go back there!  Now I’m looking for a Forever Home where I can feel safe and secure.  

I am a young, energetic boy who loves to play and spend time with my people. My foster mom says I’m a real sweetheart and I LOVE to sit in your lap. I’m sad when you leave and I’m always glad to see you upon your return home.  

I enjoy going for walks and I don’t pull on the leash; however, my foster mom says I need to walk beside her instead of in front of her.  I can’t help it!  Walks are very exciting!  I also love my toys and can be a little protective sometimes. I’m friendly around other dogs, but I’m not happy about sharing my toys. 

I guess I need to work on my manners a little and learn some self-control. I get excited easily, but I respond well to positive reinforcement and especially treats! I will sit, lie down and trade for a treat.  I need my Forever Family to continue this behavior modification, as they say I am a work in progress.  I think I am best suited for an adult home where I can be the center of attention.  

I am completely house trained and I learned how to use the doggy door.  I love my crate and immediately go in when asked. 

If you think you are ready to help me become an awesome adult dog, please contact my foster mom.  She says I’m an amazing pup and I’m on my way to being your forever best friend!

xxoo,
Peyton


Peyton is neutered, current on vaccinations, microchipped and in good health.  He will need to complete heartworm treatment at ESRA’s expense in a foster-to-adopt home.

Interested in William and Caroline? Then read about bonded pairs and the benefits of adopting these special best friends.
Introducing ESRA royalty: Prince William and Princess Caroline!

Look at these beauties! Caroline is a gorgeous liver-and-white tri-colored Springer girl who is on the smaller size. William appears to be a black-and-white Springer, but he does have subtle tan points when you look closely. These siblings are sweet, happy, well-adjusted young Springers. They are full of life, full of energy, and overflowing with love to offer a wonderful Springer family. They are very social and friendly with all people and dogs.

William and Caroline adore each other and are extremely close. Caroline is quick as a fox and quite the huntress -- she could chase squirrels for hours! William is more laid back, usually by your side, and will run to give you kisses even at the whisper of his name. They love their toys and enjoy the car.

They would be happiest in a home where they are not left alone for long hours. They are exuberant and playful and need a great yard where they can bound around and burn off youthful Springer energy. They would love playtime in the yard, lots of room to stretch their legs and long daily walks or jogs. They have matured enough that they can be left to roam the house while left alone. They have been pampered and spoiled, accustomed to cuddling on the couch and sleeping in the bed. We hope to find a home where they can do the same. A home with no cats is recommended. This adorable pair will need to learn basic obedience training and leash skills. The adopting family must commit to this. Both pups have lovely dispositions. They are best suited for older children given their enthusiasm.

Both are healthy, current on vaccinations, tested negative for heartworms and are microchipped for safekeeping.

If you are the perfect home for our prince and princess, we look forward to hearing from you.

Please read the Adoption FAQ and get an Adoption Application approved before inquiring about William.

Murphy is a two-year-old liver-and-white tri-color boy who came to ESRA after his owner relinquished him to a shelter. He wasn't doing well in the shelter and they called ESRA for help.

Murphy has been in foster care most of 2017. He came to rescue with no manners or training, food, fear and was small-space aggressive. Murphy's foster Dad has worked very hard to rehabilitate Murphy so that he can be the great dog we know he is capable of being.

We know that Murphy spent the first year of his life with a single elderly owner. Murphy is a big alpha dog who pushed his weight around to get his way. When the owner could no longer handle Murphy, that's when he was taken to the shelter.

Murphy's foster dad has worked very hard to rehabilitate Murphy. Today Murphy can be fed by hand. He lives with two resident Springers. He meets new people and hasn't reacted. Murphy still does not like to be crated, so his new family will need to ensure they won't use one. When going to the vet, Murphy does need to be muzzled or given a sedative depending on the procedure. He has a way to go before he will trust a stranger (such as the vet) to handle him.

We feel the best family for Murphy will have had experience with Springers. His Forever Family will need to ensure that Murphy knows they are alpha. Because of his history, we feel it best that Murphy does not live with children. Murphy would do best living with another dog. In his foster home, he is not the alpha dog and has learned that is okay.

Murphy is a very active dog that requires a lot of exercise. His foster dad plays ball with him for long periods of time every day. This doesn't tire Murphy out and he's always ready for the next play time.

Murphy is neutered, house trained and up to date on all preventative vaccinations. Because of Murphy's history, his foster Dad will require potential adopters to meet Murphy several times before he goes home permanently with them.

If you would like to meet Murphy, please fill out an adoption application today.

Please read the Adoption FAQ and get an Adoption Application approved before inquiring about Murphy.

Colt is a liver-and-white male who is approximately seven years old. Colt's current family took him in from a friend who could no longer care for him. Sadly, though, Colt isn't happy living with another dog, so they turned to ESRA to help find Colt the perfect Forever Home.

Colt loves children and cats and is as snuggly as can be. He needs to be the only dog in his home. Currently he doesn't have exposure to other dogs in public, so it is unknown how he would behave when meeting strange dogs.

Colt is house and crate trained and rides well in the car. He is neutered and up to date on all vaccinations. This sweet boy is ready to meet his Forever Family.

If you would like to meet Colt, please fill out an adoption application today.

We estimate this gorgeous girl Rosie to be about four years old. This black-and-white, sweet, loving girl was found as a stray and ended up in a shelter. Luckily ESRA came along to spring her and help find her Forever Home.

Rosie is very shy with strangers, but once she gets to know you she is very loving. Rosie is afraid of loud noises and will urinate submissively when nervous or forced to do something (like sit for a photograph) that she is unsure of. The family that adopts Rosie will need to understand her shyness and continue to work slowly with her to gain more confidence. Attending an obedience class with Rosie would be a good bonding experience and possibly also help with her confidence.

Rosie came to the shelter intact and is now spayed. She was not house trained but is learning with the help of her foster family. Rosie will need continued positive voice training to be fully house trained. Rosie is up to date on all vaccinations, walks well on a leash, gets along well with other dogs and cats and loves her people. Rosie is comfortable in a crate and will often choose to sleep in it during the day. Rosie loves to play in the snow and go for walks, but she is currently out of shape and needs to build up to longer walks.

Her foster parents have fallen in love with her and feel she will flourish with continued positive voice training to help her gain her confidence. Rosie would do best in a calm household with another friendly, playful and outgoing dog to help her explore the world. Because of Rosie's shyness, her foster family may require that her adoptive family meet with her a few times so that she can get to know you before moving. This sweet, gentle, lovable girl will be worth the effort.

If you would like to meet Rosie please fill out an adoption application today.
