Tulip (MN)'s Story...
Hi, everyone. My name is Tulip, and I am new to the world of ESRA, but I really love being part of it. Two weeks ago I was in an animal shelter. My future was uncertain, at least in my eyes. I was still really scared. Both of my ears were so badly infected that they were closed shut. I was filthy and matted. They were nice to me at the shelter, but all the other dogs were barking, and all those different people frightened me a lot. Then a lady from ESRA came and decided I was the cutest baby she had ever seen, and I went home with her. I was still very nervous, but after the first day I started calming down.

The next day I went to the vet. I received all my shots, and he cleaned my ears and gave me medicine. I am heartworm negative, spayed, and have started my first month of heartworm and flea preventatives. My foster mom says that I am right as rain, whatever that means. She also says that I am her little doll baby girl. I don't know what that means either, but she always picks me up and hugs me, so I guess it must be good. My foster mom named me Tulip because I was found on the first day of spring. Like the beautiful tulips that blossom in the spring after a cold, hard winter, she says I am blossoming into the beautiful Springer I was always meant to be.

My foster mom says that I am just about perfect. I get along fine with the resident Springer, the cats, and all the friends who come to visit. I think I might be happiest as an only dog, though. I am really affectionate and prefer all the love for myself. But, hey, I have been so lonely and neglected for a long time! If you were me, you would feel the same way. I do not counter surf, I can be left in the house and never get into any trouble, and I am totally housetrained. I am a real Velcro Springer, because I want to be with my people always.

I pull on a leash a little. My foster mom says that is her fault. She always takes me and my foster brother to the woods and fields to let us run, swim, jump, and spring over logs. It is so much fun! I get out of the car and start running and barking and having the time of my life. She takes us there for one and a half hours in the morning and for the same amount of time in late afternoon. When I come home I am a perfect little lady and just pad around the house. I really love running in the woods. But my foster mom wants you to know that I am not a hunting dog. I am very frightened of noises and unexpected movements. Believe it or not, I am terrified of the camera. Every time Mom tries to take my picture, I cower and then run and hide.

I sleep through the night. I used to sleep on my pillow, but then one night there was a terrible thunderstorm. I jumped up in bed with my foster parents and they let me stay. My foster dad held me all night because I was so frightened. You guessed it--now I sleep with them every night. How sweet it is! I really love my foster home and my foster parents. My foster mom said she would keep me, but then she could not foster any more dogs. She is looking for a very special family to love me. Oh, I forgot to mention that it is not a good idea for me to be left alone all day. I want someone who will spend time with me and not leave me locked up by myself. I also do not know how I would be with children. Teenagers are fine, but probably not anyone under thirteen.

If you are that special person who can love me, exercise me, and hang out with me, give my foster mom a call.

Looking forward to meeting you,
Tulip (aka Little Doll Baby Girl)

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Tulip (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.
