Jimmy's Story...
This is Jimmy, he's all springer spaniel, so if you're looking for an active boy who's ready to learn then Jimmy's your boy! He'd be great at agility or flyball – some kind of “job” that will provide him with both mental stimulation & physical activity. It appears that Jimmy has not had much socialization or training in his life, so he is a little socially inept with other dogs and does not have the best manners. He is the prime example of a dog who was obviously purchased from some irresponsible breeder and then just left to pretty much fend for himself until he was abandoned. He is very intelligent and eager to learn, but he has never been taught anything or been given any purpose. His foster mom has been working on his housetraining, obedience, leash manners and social skills and he is starting to catch on. In the short time he’s been in our care, he has already learned how to “sit”, “down” and “shake a paw”. Jimmy is a great dog with amazing potential, but he will need someone who is both able to keep up with him and willing to put some time into training him. He can be good with other dogs but because he was not socialized, he seems to sometimes get carried away, so he needs to be closely supervised. He's good with kids but as he can get a little rambunctious its best if his new family has older children who can help with his training and be sure to be consistent with him. Springer Spaniels are wonderfully intelligent and affectionate, but they do require a lot of exercise for both their bodies and their minds.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Jimmy, a Okotoks 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 Okotoks, or seeking a English Springer Spaniel dog from a breeder in Okotoks.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Okotoks 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 Okotoks 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 Okotoks paves the way for another one to be saved.
