JR is a strikingly handsome retired show dog who recently had his world turned upside down. His mom passed away suddenly so Senior Spaniel Rescue came to the rescue! He is a 7-year-old black & white bench-bred Springer Spaniel. JR lived in a show home and although well taken care, did not live in the house. He lived with other dogs, and was allowed into the house for short periods of time. He spent a lot of crate and dog-run time, so he’s learning to live in a household situation. So, JR is making up for lost time. He loves deeply and doesn’t want you out of his sight. He wants to soak up all the love you shower on him. This boy is so affectionate and loves to put his paws on you or curl up on the couch and lay his head in your lap. He will sleep in a crate in your bedroom, but would much rather be on your bed .
JR is currently living in a Foster home with an independent Springer sister who does not mind sharing her human mom with him. A great home for JR would be with a retiree or someone who works from home. He would do well as an only dog, or he would be willing to share his space with a female dog. He is not fond of other male dogs and we will not place him in a home with males. He did play chase with another male in the park, but that is different from sharing his home with one.
His Foster mom is introducing JR to a dog door, but he is still a bit reluctant to go through without a nudge. He loves his daily walks, plays chase with his Springer sister and the occasional random dog in the park. He rides well in the car and likes plane rides too! JR shows limited interest in playing with toys. He does however sit patiently every night while his Foster mom brushes his teeth!
If you are looking for a handsome, affectionate snuggle bug that stares adoringly into your eyes and wants to be your constant loyal companion, JR may want to come home with you!!!
Although being fostered in New Mexico, we will consider adoption applications from NV, AZ, CA, NM and TX. Contact Ronnie at firstname.lastname@example.org for application or complete one online here.
