Bunny's Story...
Age: 7 years
Gender: Female
Color: Black & White
Weight: 35 lbs
Variety: Field

Bunny is a sweet, petite Springer. She was rescued by the local sheriff, who had received a report of a dog being thrown out of a vehicle. Bunny was found curled in a ball in the ditch with her hair so matted that she could not move her head or see out of one of her eyes. Bunny had obviously had more than one litter of pups, and she had multiple teeth which appeared to have been broken off, possibly due to blunt force trauma. She was also quite thin.

Since coming to the shelter and then being taken into ESRA's care, Bunny has had her matted fur shaved. The vet has spayed her, brought her up to date on vaccinations, removed several benign lumps, and performed some dental work. Bunny has gained a couple of pounds, and she is now ready to look for her Forever Home.

Bunny is housetrained and crate trained. She gets along well with the three other dogs in her foster home, although she could also be happy as an only dog because she loves getting one-on-one attention from her people. She is a snuggler who will sit on the couch in the evening next to her foster mother. Bunny likes to sit with her head or one paw on her foster mom's lap. Bunny goes willingly into her crate at night. She is something of a talker, and she will whine softly or even bark if she feels that you are not paying enough attention to her or if she feels anxious.

Bunny does appear to be quite interested in the resident cats, so she will need to go to a cat-free home. Although she has not been exposed to children in her foster home, we think she may do well with older children.

No doubt because of her history, Bunny does have some problems with anxiety, and she will pace in circles when she gets nervous. She seems to settle down nicely when she goes into her crate.

Bunny has an extremely sweet, kind, and loving personality. She is looking for a Forever Home where she can get the attention and care that she deserves and where she can continue to heal from her past. If you can offer Bunny the love and comfort she needs and would like to meet her, please contact her ESRA case managers at the e-mail address below.

Please note that an approved adoption application is the first step in a more thorough interview process that is designed to match each dog to exactly the right family, and that the final decision rests with the dog's case manager.

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

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Bunny, a Minneapolis English Springer Spaniel dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a English Springer Spaniel for sale in Minneapolis, or seeking a English Springer Spaniel dog from a breeder in Minneapolis.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Minneapolis already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Minneapolis breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even English Springer Spaniel breeders who help with English Springer Spaniel rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Minneapolis paves the way for another one to be saved.
