Shaker's Story...
This handsome guy is Shaker. He is lovingly referred to by his foster mom as a shadow because he follows her around everywhere. If she is out of his sight, Shaker will find her to check on her.

Shaker is good with older children. He has not encountered young children or cats in his foster home. Although his is friendly to his canine foster siblings, Shaker will do best as the only dog in his Forever Home so that he can be the center of attention. As is true of so many Springers, Shaker is very food motivated, and he really enjoys his meals.

Outside, Shaker takes his job of "critter control officer" seriously. He keeps an eye on squirrels, chipmunks, bunnies, and birds. He also loves to chase tennis balls! His foster mom says that it's a joy to watch Shaker outside. He is not street wise when he is chasing things, so it is vital that he has a fenced yard to keep him safe. When he's not chasing something, Shaker is calm and has a gentle nature.

Shaker is healthy and has recently had a dental cleaning. He is well behaved at the vet and does fine in the car, although he needs encouragement to get in. He is afraid of thunder and fireworks, so he needs a gentle human to comfort him during those times.

When his foster family is away, Shaker has earned free rein of the house. All in all, he is one of those easy keepers. Sweet Shaker is ready to meet his Forever Family, so if you have room in your home and your heart (and maybe a few extra tennis balls) for this charmer, please contact his 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 Shaker.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Shaker, 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.
