Please note, as of March 1, 2017, the adoption fee will increase to $325.00. All adoptable dogs will be up-to-date on vaccines, spayed/neutered, heartworm negative and microchipped.
These dogs have now been evaluated and deemed healthy enough for adoption. Please note: only those applicants who are already approved can click through the "I'm Interested" button to obtain additional information and apply for the available dog.
Once a dog is made available for adoption, our fosters' role is to evaluate each adoption applicant interested in the dog and then select the applicant that best meets the needs of the dog. Our ultimate goal is that each dog and family is truly a forever match!
As our mission states, all of our intakes are considered "at-risk;" however, some dogs are also deemed "special needs" rescues. Special needs dogs are those that will need extensive, long-term specialized care, some for the duration of their lives, but are not deemed unadoptable as with Permanent Foster Care dogs. Some special needs dogs will require a forever home close to a specialty veterinary hospital or vet school; some near a rehabilitation facility; some will require on-going intensive, specialized behavioral management training, etc. Because of the extraordinary demands of the attention, time, care and commitment required for them, special needs rescues are not generally open for adoption to the general public and BSR directly places these dogs with forever families who can meet their needs. If you are interested in adopting a special needs dog, please let us know!

Meet Stella-Bella! BSR 1205
Hi, my name is Stella-Bella, a fun, spunky 6 year old who is reveling in all the attention and care I am getting in my time with BSR. I am a very active, healthy girl who is full of personality. I weigh about 34 pounds and have an amazing, wavy, curly, fast growing coat. My foster mom says I am fun and a beauty too!
I love to play! I have a blast chasing water out of the hose or swimming after balls like a youngster. Retrieving toys and bumpers is fun too, but I do need more work on the “bringing back and releasing” part! My foster mom says I am very, very smart. I know a number of commands, will come when called, will “kennel” on command (I like my kennel and will sleep there all night) and I walk on a leash like a champion. I love long walks and even a short run. I am trustworthy in the house while my people are out. I do like to stay close to my people, so don’t think you can just put me outside in the yard for a long time with other dogs or I might just start digging! Boy, do I love to ride in the car. I jump right in! Short trips and especially long trips, I do great. I love to explore new places and see new sights.
I am a confident girl, and I like being top dog. I can get jealous (not always) over toys and food when I decide I don’t want to play or share with other dogs. I let them know with a little growl to watch out. If the other dog is non-dominant I might play just fine with them, but on my terms. My new family needs to be comfortable managing my interactions with other dogs.
I also need to be groomed regularly and my ears need to be watched for possible infections which Boykins are prone to.
My ideal home would be with an active family who have the time and commitment to spend time with me and take me with them on their adventures. I need lots of good exercise, walks and play since I have so much good energy. Older children would be fun as well as another non-dominant dog. I would love a place to swim or my person to take me often to the water! I am a happy, fun, smart girl ready to give lots of love to the right family.
Boykin Spaniel Rescue, Inc. prides itself in our dedication to evaluating the health, temperament and strengths of each dog. Sometimes dogs are with us a month or so, sometimes it is much longer. We assure you, the wait is worth it! Please check back frequently as new dogs make their appearance in this final step of care before becoming available!
