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 Rookie! BSR 1216
Hi, my name is Rookie. I am a sweet, loving, approximately one year old male who weighs 28lbs. I am a “all-go-no-quit” typical Boykin puppy. I’ve tried hard to learn as much as possible in foster care, but I know I will need lots more training to be the best Boykin possible. And lots and lots of supervised exercise too!
I came from a shelter and not much is known about my past. One thing for sure, my foster Mom doesn’t think I had much training. But I know my new name! I’m housebroken now as long as I go out often. I’m fine staying in my crate when needed for reasonable length of time. I walk on a leash pretty well and know SIT. I’m learning DOWN and STAY so I won’t run out the front door. I know I’ll improve but training is hard when there are so many other things to distract me.
I’m a real loving, sweet dog. I’m pretty calm for a one year old but I do have bursts of wildness. I get along with everyone I’ve met so far, like adults and my foster brother and other dogs. I’ve never met a cat or a child as far as I know, so how I would react is unknown. I’m very mischievous and have to be supervised with toys ‘cause I eat them if I can. My foster mom really liked the slippers I stole. Oh well, sorry! Now everything is kept out of reach as much as possible and I have only hard to destruct toys.
I still like counter surfing and jumping on people. When I get excited, I launch onto people and grab arms and hands in my mouth. Thank goodness I have a soft mouth but nonetheless I need to stop that. I’m trying to learn!
My ideal environment would be with people who understand Boykin energy and can give me lots of time and attention for exercise and training. I need loving supervision and ideally a job to keep my mind occupied. Another dog who would play with me like my foster brother would be great. I need a large fenced yard to keep me safe but I can’t just be left outside without supervision ‘cause I get bored easily and I’m sure to get up to mischief. I know that I can develop into a well mannered Boykin with the right leadership and love.
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!
Meet Java! BSR 1218
Hi, Java here, and like a good cup o’ joe, I’m just what you need to perk up you and your pack! I’m a great 6 year old boy, who loves the company of other dogs and critters, and just generally makes himself at home! I’m going to be ready very soon for my forever home, so check back soon!
Check back soon for more fantastic Boykin rescues as they make their way through to adoptability!
