Thinking about bringing Mandy or another wonderful Senior Springer into your family? Read why rescuing Senior Springers is a top priority for ESRA.
Our lovely Mandy is frequently found curled up on the couch watching television. As a calm adult dog, she enjoys taking leisurely walks and occasionally running a few laps around the yard or romping in the fields. Many is hard of hearing, so she sleeps very soundly.
Her twice-daily meal times are Mandy's favorite parts of the day. Her new family will need to resist Mandy's pleas for extra meals; after losing thirty pounds she's now at a healthy weight.
Mandy was in pretty rough shape when she was taken in by our volunteers, but with a lot of great care, she has turned into a much younger and healthier version of herself! She has received all necessary vet care including the removal of a 1.6 pound lipoma (fatty tumor) from her left rib cage area. She also had a dental cleaning with multiple tooth extractions. Now that her health has improved, she is ready to find her Forever Home.
To help her stay strong and healthy, Mandy is currently under the care of a rehabilitation veterinarian. It would be great if she could continue to see her rehab vet in Burnsville, Minnesota after she is adopted.
Mandy's ideal home will have a slower pace but will let her be involved in the daily life of her family. She doesn't like riding in the car, but she is comfortable being at home alone. She would also do best with few stairs, as she's not very careful on them!
Mandy is one of those very good dogs who is easy to live with and to love. She has lots of life left to live and devotion to give to her new Forever Family. So if you think this special girl might be the one for you, contact her 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 Mandy.
