Gem's Story...
Age: 3 years
Gender: Female
Color: Liver & White
Weight: 27 lbs
Variety: Field

Gem is just as her name says--a real jewel of a dog! She is sweet, petite, and cute.
She is housetrained and crate trained, but she does enjoy having free rein around the house. This has worked out fine, as Gem hasn't gotten into anything inappropriate at her foster home. She only chews her own toys--and she really loves toys!

Gem knows a few commands, but she could use a little basic obedience work. She is looking to build a strong bond with her family and is eager to learn. Attending an obedience class together is a great way for all new owners and their adopted dogs to strengthen their bond and to establish that it is the humans who set the rules.

Gem loves to play with anyone. When you're done playing, she will snuggle in your lap if you let her. She gets along well with other dogs, as she considers them her play partners. And she particularly loves it when the children in the household engage her in play.

Gem does require a fenced yard to prevent her from going exploring and wandering off. She also can't live with cats, but that is only because she thinks they should also play with her, which leads to a chasing game. Yes--with Gem, it's all about the play!

This little girl would just love an active family with kids that would run and have fun with her. Another friendly dog in the family would be great, too. Our little Gem is an easy keeper, so if you're looking for a beautiful, affectionate, and above all playful companion, please contact us about Gem right away!

Please note that an approved adoption application is the first step in a more thorough interview process that is designed to match each dog to exactly the right family, and that the final decision rests with the dog's case manager.

Please read the Adoption FAQ and get an Adoption Application approved before inquiring about Gem.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Gem, 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.
