Sherman (MN)'s Story...
Hi, there! My name is Sherman. I was lost and really scared a couple of months ago, but boy, have things changed! I was walking on the highway when a lady offered me a ride to a nearby shelter, and since I wasn't feeling too good, I accepted. It seems I had heat exhaustion and bad mats in my coat, but I felt better in just a few short days.

It turned out that the shelter needed a greeter, and I jumped at the opportunity to fill that position. I happily greeted all the visitors--children and adults, dogs and cats, and even a family of ferrets! I loved everyone and everything, and instead of staying in a kennel, I happily patrolled the whole shelter, nuzzling all my new friends!

After two months, however, the shelter was full, and ESRA was called to help me find a home. The day my foster mama got me, my shelter friends were very sad to see me go. They said they would miss me a lot, especially my lovable nature!

At my foster mama and daddy's home, I have a Springer sister, a kitty cat, and two kids that I hang out with. I'm happiest when I'm snuggling, getting belly rubs, eating treats, chewing bones, taking leisurely walks, sunbathing, and napping on big, soft pillows! Sometimes I get the house all to myself, and I listen to the radio or happily sleep. My family doesn’t even mind buying the inexpensive medicine for my achy joints. It’s much better walking and going up and down a couple of steps when I take my medicine! I should mention that I'm potty trained, I sleep through the night, I have good manners, I don't get on the furniture, and I don't bark but I do talk. I love other dogs, puppies, and cats, and I love making people smile! I'm also a very low-maintenance boy. As long as you're happy, I'm happy!

I promise my Forever Family that I will love you unconditionally and give you as much snuggling and cuteness as you could ever ask for!

Love,
Sherman

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Sherman (MN), 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.
