WHY ADOPT A RESCUED SPRINGER ?
There are many sound and practical reasons.
- The dog may already be housetrained. Even adult dogs, with little experience living inside a home, are surprisingly easy to train.
- Older dogs enjoy playing with toys and learning new games.
- Unless they are puppies, dogs are their full size when they are adopted.
- Rehomed dogs are eager to learn the ways of their new home.
- With careful screening, our organization helps find the best match possible for your household.
- The dog's shots are current, and they are spayed or neutered.
But, there is much more. Rescued springers seem to create an exceptional bond with their owners. Maybe it's because of their intelligence and love of people. Or maybe it's their adaptability and their desire to please.
This is how some adopters have described this unique relationship:
"They KNOW they've got a second chance and appreciate the love, safety and companionship of a home that truly wants them and appreciates them for being the individuals that they are."
"He has come from being timid, no manners, and neglected to an exuberant, happy, obedient, and very healthy dog. His personality is the definition of playful and sweet."
"I rescued my Springer last year and I think it is how fast she is able to connect with my feelings that make her so great."
"Their reaction is that of a typical Spaniel, loving with all of their heart and soul."
"As Velcro dogs, Springers abound with love, and when they come as a rescue they just seem to show it with exuberance. At this point in my life, I cannot imagine being without at least one Springer."
