Thinking about bringing Elskan or another wonderful Senior Springer into your family? Read why rescuing Senior Springers is a top priority for ESRA.

This is our sweet and gentle Elskan. She came to ESRA when her family situation changed due to medical and financial circumstances.

The wonderful thing about Elskan is that she always seems contented. She's not too Velcro; she's happy simply to be in the same room with her people. But of course she does enjoy snuggling with them as well, either on a bed or on the furniture.

Elskan is on medication for her thyroid and arthritis, and she will likely need these meds for the rest of her life. Her foster family is working to help Elskan to lose some weight, as she can be winded when coming in from outside.

Outside, Elskan will wander off if she is not watched. She should be monitored when she is off leash as she likes to graze and enjoy the yard. However, she will come when she's called. Exercise should be kept to a minimum as Elskan has a limp from an old injury, and she struggles with stairs.

This contented girl exhibits no anxiety when her foster parents leave for the work day. She does not bark. She is great when she is left alone and does fine with free rein in the house. Elskan is also an excellent car rider. She would be a great dog to take to work if that was an option for someone.

Pretty Elskan has lots of life left to live and love to give. She is ready to find her new Forever Family and help them to be contented, too!

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 Elskan.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Elskan, 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.
