One look into those soulful eyes will tell you how sweet-natured this little 5 year old guy is. What Spanky loves most is being with his family. Where you go is where he wants to be. He is happy to sit quietly next to you while you watch TV or be your best friend on a walk. Spanky displays the characteristics of a Miniature Pinscher mix with a traveling man. Where did that curly tail come from? At only 20 lbs, he is a good size for cuddling, but sturdy enough to play with. He is an energetic dog who loves his daily walks where he can say hello to all the squirrel and bird friends he has made. If you will run with him, he will keep pace at your side. If you prefer to ride a bike, Spanky has been trained to run alongside you. He is house and crate trained, although he needs some help with basic commands like sit and stay. He learns fast and is eager to please, especially with a kind word, a treat, and a gentle pet as his rewards. Spanky has been abandoned before and gets anxious when left alone, concerned that his family will not come back for him. He would do best in a home with another energetic little dog who needs a friend and a playmate. He also likes children and even gets along with the cat. This sweet dog wants so much to be a part of a loving family who will never abandon him again.

We are a RESCUE GROUP, not a shelter, and all of our animals are in foster homes. To start the adoption process, email us at requesting an application. Submitting an application does not commit you in any way, but helps us make the best match between people and our available dogs. Your current or past dogs must be spayed or neutered, on heartworm prevention, and be primarily inside dogs or we will not consider your application to adopt. All of the dogs in our program are inside dogs and are completely vetted including all vaccinations, spayed/neutered, free of internal parasites, microchipped, heartworm negative and on prevention before adoption. Our adoption process includes an application, check of vet records or personal references, interview, neutral site meet & greet with the dog and your family, and a home visit.

About Education & Animal Rescue Society (EARS)

About Our Rescue Group...

Education and Animal Rescue Society is an all volunteer, non-profit Texas corporation whose mission is to educate the public about issues concerning animal behavior and proper care for pets including an emphasis on vaccinations, spay and neutering, and nutrition. Further, EARS is committed to finding homes for unwanted animals that would otherwise perish in shelters. EARS keeps all of its animals in homes with volunteer foster families where the animals are loved and treated like a part of the family until the right permanent home is found.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We do not have a shelter, as all of our rescue animals are living with foster families in private homes. You can meet one of our animals by appointment once your adoption application had been processed and initially approved (final approval occurs right before the adoption is complete). Also, EARS has Meet and Greet Days at various local venues in the Dallas area. We will post the dates and times of the Meet and Greet Days on this website. Meet and Greet Days are an opportunity for you to meet some of our animals. Unfortunately, not all of our animals make it to every Meet and Greet Day so please contact us at adoptions@earstexas.orgto check if your four-legged friend of choice will be available to meet you. (We do not do any onsite adoptions.)

Our Adoption Process...

If you are interested in adopting one of our animals, please email us at for an application and more information. Since we are an all volunteer group, please be patient with us in responding to your inquiries. Thank you for your interest in our adoption program!
