Hurray, I'm now a house dog! I am a sweet, fluffy, small American Eskimo who was turned into a kill shelter because my family said they had no time for me. I was originally found as a stray and spent my time in their garage. I like the house and so far have been a very good boy. No accidents for me. I like the 2 other dogs and 2 cats living in the house too. Oh yeah and my human foster sisters too. They are 9 and 11, so I'm good with kids. I have been playing and giving a lot of kisses, also staying off the furniture. My foster mom says so far I am the perfect guest so I would be the perfect addition to your home. I can't wait to have my own place with a family that will love me forever.
So today I had my first dog park adventure with one of my foster dog brothers. It was the bomb. I'm mean lots of dogs to play with and kids, yeah kids all over the place. I let everyone pet me. And of course they all commented on how sweet and fluffy I am. I even found my voice, yes, I like to bark but I am easily redirected. I think I'm just so excited about life. I really enjoy playing and letting my foster family know I'm here. I'll make the perfect addition to someone's family.
Pictures to come.......
Rescue Group Info...
Eskie Rescuers United (ERU) is made up entirely of volunteers. We don’t have any building or offices; we’re just a group of people who have opened up their homes to foster dogs that are in need. Our volunteers are spread across the United States, and we keep in contact by email, the Internet, and by telephone. No one is paid a salary and most of us have regular jobs in addition to our volunteer work for ERU. You can help us by being understanding if our volunteers are unable to pick up a dog, or deliver a dog to you, or do things as quickly as you might like. Most of us have to schedule these things around our job and other family commitments.
ERU does not make money by selling dogs. In fact, we lose money with each dog that we foster and adopt out. Most of our money is spent on vet care for our foster dogs. Donations and fundraising help make up the difference.
The dogs we foster come from many places. Some are turned in by their owners who can no longer care for them. Others are found as stray dogs, or for one reason or another they wind up in dog shelters. As you probably know, there are too many dogs without homes in the United States, and the majority of them have to be put to sleep due to overcrowded conditions in shelters. ERU works to save as many American Eskimo dogs that we can by rescuing them. We then foster the dogs in the volunteer’s homes, provide veterinary care, and put a profile for the dog on our website.
Our California foster homes will be happy to schedule private showing by appointment to meet and greet with our eskie friends. We do not show them at adoption events at this time.
You must be 21 years of age or older to submit an application.
Effective January 1, 2009, adoption donations are:
Young puppies, see price in desired puppy's profile (under 6 months)
$300 for older puppies (6 to 11 months)
$250 for adults (1 yr to 4 yr 11 mos)
$200 for adults (5 yr to 9 yr 11 mos)
$150 for seniors (10+ yrs)
You may think our application and adoption procedures are a bit stringent or lengthy. Please remember that many of these dogs have already been separated from a home, and not always a loving one. We try hard to make the adoptions successful and make the best possible decisions for the dogs. Our adoption process helps to assure us that you are ready for the responsibility and commitment of adopting a beautiful Eskie.
After filling out the Adoption Application, it will be reviewed and your vet will be called as a reference. (If you do not have a vet because this is your first pet, please know that this will NOT prevent you from being able to adopt one of our dogs.) After the application review and reference check, you will be contacted by an ERU representative for a short telephone interview and to set up a home visit appointment. We want to see where the Eskie(s) will live, play and exercise.
Before releasing a dog to its new "Furever Family", ERU requires that the adoptors sign an Adoption Agreement. This document is a legally binding contract between you and ERU. It confirms that you are aware of the restrictions that ERU places on the disposition of the dog you adopt and the rights to that dog that are reserved by ERU. We strongly recommend that you review the Adoption Agreement before proceeding with the adoption process.
Eskie Rescuers United is a nationwide rescue organization.
