COURTESY POST ~ Spring and Ernie are the beloved dogs of a fellow dedicated rescuer, shelter volunteer, and pit bull advocate who passed away suddenly in March of 2016. She left behind her two pit bull babies, Spring and Ernie, middle-aged dogs who have now lost their mom and are at-risk of losing their home. Their mother’s family is desperate to find them a home, and we are courtesy posting them and screening applications to help them reach that goal as this story has broken our hearts and we at FernDog want to do everything we can to help!
Spring is an (approximately) 7-year-old white pretty pittie with light brown spots. She weighs about 50 lbs. Spring loves all people (although has not been around very young children), and is social with other dogs. Spring should not go to a home with cats.
Ernie is an (approximately) 9 year old gorgeous brindle guy with a white chest. He weighs about 50 lbs. Ernie loves all people (although he has not been around very young children) and Ernie adores Spring and is bonded to her, but is not social with other dogs. Ernie should not go to a home with cats.
Both dogs have cropped ears from their prior life, before their mama rescued them.
An ideal situation would be to place Spring and Ernie in a home together, without any other pets, but we realize this is a tall order. Because of this, we are willing to place them separately – Spring in a home with other dogs (proper introductions required, of course) and Ernie in a home on his own. It would be an adjustment for them, but we do believe they will be content.
Spring and Ernie are presently living in their late mother’s house while a caregiver visits them a few times a day. This is not a long-term situation for any dog and their time there is limited as the house will soon need to be sold. Please visit the Facebook page “Help Find A Forever Home For Spring & Ernie” for more information and photos.
Thank you for your help in honoring Elise’s legacy by supporting and loving her precious Spring and Ernie. #pleaseshare
