Other Info :
Ms. Springer is a 2 year old female that is starting to understand that the world can be good. She is named after the Houston Astros baseball player George Springer. She was rescued from a shelter where she was picked up as a stray. We could not even get her out the cage, she was so scared. She was covered in fleas and huge ticks. She is still a little thin, but definitely has some spunk back and is starting to love life.
Springer was diagnosed with a tick borne illness, so she is currently being treated for that. Once that treatment is complete, she is due to start her heartworm treatment on May 22nd.
Springer will need an Alcatraz crate, as she can and will escape a regular crate. She will start to get mischievous if left out more than 2 hours or so, it can lead to destruction if left out too long. Also, unless the family wants to invest or already has invested in an Alcatraz crate, there would need to be a stay at home parent. We even have a child gate with a door to go up our stairs, and Springer knows how to open it.
She loves dogs and kids, and would probably benefit from a dog friend, but I'm not sure it's a deal breaker if there were playful children.
Springer doesn't care if humans come near her or her food while she is eating, and she doesn't care if a dog comes near her while she is eating, but she isn't okay sharing her food out of the same food bowl, she has never snapped but she definitely growled to get the point across that it wasn't okay.
We have taken Springer to multiple Legacy events, and she has always done amazingly well with the crazy environments and multitude of people / dogs that come up and want to give them attention. We love taking her to restaurants where the patio is dog friendly, and she just soaks up all the attention.
She is a super sweet and caring girl, not much bothers her as long as she is getting loved on.
Springer will not be available until the end of June at the earliest. If you think Springer is perfect for your family and late June is not too long, please let your adoption counselor know.
