COURTESY POST ~ Spring and Ernie are the beloved dogs of a fellow dedicated rescuer, shelter volunteer, and pit bull advocate who passed away suddenly in March of 2016. She left behind her two pit bull babies, Spring and Ernie, middle-aged dogs who have now lost their mom and are at-risk of losing their home. Their mother’s family is desperate to find them a home, and we are courtesy posting them and screening applications to help them reach that goal as this story has broken our hearts and we at FernDog want to do everything we can to help!

Spring is an (approximately) 7-year-old white pretty pittie with light brown spots. She weighs about 50 lbs. Spring loves all people (although has not been around very young children), and is social with other dogs. Spring should not go to a home with cats.

Ernie is an (approximately) 9 year old gorgeous brindle guy with a white chest. He weighs about 50 lbs. Ernie loves all people (although he has not been around very young children) and Ernie adores Spring and is bonded to her, but is not social with other dogs. Ernie should not go to a home with cats.

Both dogs have cropped ears from their prior life, before their mama rescued them.

An ideal situation would be to place Spring and Ernie in a home together, without any other pets, but we realize this is a tall order. Because of this, we are willing to place them separately – Spring in a home with other dogs (proper introductions required, of course) and Ernie in a home on his own. It would be an adjustment for them, but we do believe they will be content.

Spring and Ernie are presently living in their late mother’s house while a caregiver visits them a few times a day. This is not a long-term situation for any dog and their time there is limited as the house will soon need to be sold. Please visit the Facebook page “Help Find A Forever Home For Spring & Ernie” for more information and photos.

Thank you for your help in honoring Elise’s legacy by supporting and loving her precious Spring and Ernie. #pleaseshare

About The FernDog Rescue Foundation

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a small rescue that started in January 2013 after years of working for different rescues and decided to join forces to start our own rescue/foster program. With over 20 years of combined experience with animals (rescue, training, advocacy), we learned that many dogs are not properly matched up with the right families. We realize that no one is at fault here since the overpopulation of homeless pets is staggering and animal advocates what to spare these precious dogs lives by finding homes as opposed to being euthanized. We decided that we would do our small part and keep our rescue small so we can focus on getting to know the personality of each dog in our foster program, doing proper evaluations and temperament testing, putting each dog through any type of training services they may need, and completing a thorough screening for all applicants which includes a mandatory home visit all BEFORE the dog gets matched up with a compatible family. Our mission statements says:
The mission of The FernDog Rescue Foundation is to help dogs at risk by providing foster homes that will nurture their physical and emotional health, help locate the ideal forever homes for them while providing support and training to help assure that their stay in their new homes is permanent. In addition we focus on developing programs to promote pet adoption services and raise public awareness by providing community education of the issues surrounding animal rescue.

Come Meet Our Pets...

The FernDog Rescue Foundation does adoption events every 1st and 3rd Saturday of the month at Pet Valu in W. Caldwell NJ from 12-3p , the 2nd Sunday of the month at PetValu in Clifton NJ from 12-3p and every 4th Sunday at Petco in Verona NJ from 12p-3p.
All of our dogs are current on our website and our application can be found online as well.

Our Adoption Process...

The application is the first step in our adoption process. We will screen all applications through a vet reference check, 3 personal reference checks, phone interview and a mandatory home visit. An adoption donation is required of $300 (adult dogs), $350 (puppies), $200 (seniors/special needs), which covers the cost of spay/neuter, microchipping, vaccines and preventatives per the dog’s age, health check, fecal / deworming as needed and heartworm testing and treatment as needed.
Contract will be signed at time of adoption with a set of guidelines which include, mandatory microchip registration at time of adoption, agreement to return the dog to FernDog if care can no longer be provided at any time during the life of the dog, all animals will be treated humanely and live indoors and adequate medical care will be provided, etc.
