WSSCA Successful Rescue - Nellie & Duke
Nellie & Duke

Nellie is a ten year old AKC registered Welsh Springer Spaniel whose second owner had to part with her due to some very challenging health issues within his extended family. Nellie was also surrendered with Duke, a nine year old field-bred style English Springer Spaniel and they came in to foster care together. English Springer Rescue America will be working to find Duke a foster and a forever home in the near future.

Nellie is overall healthy and very low-key. She and Duke are used to trotting alongside their former owner’s bike for a four mile ride around a lake near their previous home, so neither dogs are couch potatoes. However, both do love attention and a good romp in the local dog park or a long walk. Both are used to being house dogs, are housetrained and crate trained, although they really don’t need to be crated. As seniors, they just hang out when their people have to leave for a while.
