Hello, everyone! My name is Jeremy, but I hope you will call me Jer-Bear – all my best friends do! As you can see, I am a Springer/border collie mix puppy. (People tell me I’m very handsome!) I just had my five-month birthday, and what a day that was! I flew to my Southern California foster home in a helicopter! Can you believe that? Not too many young boys can say they have their own personal pilot and their own personal aircraft! I will admit, though, that all the recent changes in my life had me very scared for a few days. The ride down was cool, but meeting a whole pack of new dogs at my foster home made me very nervous. I needed lots and lots of cuddles and reassurance. However, after a day or so, I figured out that all the dogs wanted to be my new friends, and the two youngest Springers started to teach me how to play really fun rough-and-tumble games. Now I cannot imagine living anywhere without at least one other young dog for a friend! My foster mom has told me that she is going to find me the very best Forever Home, one that I will never have to leave. Could that possibly be with your family? If you’d like to meet me, please email my foster mom.
Sending you sweet Springer kisses in advance,
Jeremy is a beautiful boy who is very active. In other words, he's a typical Springer/border collie puppy! His human family contacted ESRA when they decided that two puppies were more than they could handle. Jer-Bear is a very affectionate guy who loves to snuggle on your lap and be by your side as much as possible. He gives amazingly sweet kisses and is a very well-behaved young boy. Although Jeremy knows many commands such as Sit, Come, Wait, and Crate, he will benefit from at least one obedience class with his new family. This will help increase Jeremy’s self-confidence in his new home and will also let him know what is expected of him. Once obedience classes are done, Jer-Bear would be an excellent candidate for agility or fly ball. He would also be a good jogging partner for his new owner. This little dynamo loves to race around the yard, chew sticks, hunt lizards, play with stuffed squeaky toys, and chew on Nylabones. As all puppies do, Jer-Bear wears himself out quickly and likes to nap either in his crate or snuggled up next to his human.
Of course Jeremy will need lots of time and room to run and play as he grows. His ideal Forever Home will include a large, securely fenced yard and another dog of similar age, size, and energy level for him to play with. Jer-Bear loves children, so a home with kids over age eight would be an added bonus. In his previous home, he slept on a dog bed in the bedroom with his owners. In his foster home, he is perfectly content to sleep in a roomy crate. He also enjoys time in his crate, with the door left open, for a nap during the day or to quietly entertain himself with his toys.
This healthy boy is up to date on his vaccinations. He has just been neutered and had all four dew claws removed at that time. He is also microchipped for safety. Jer-Bear will be available for adoption after August 1, which will give him time to heal from his surgeries. We expect that applicants will be clamoring to scoop this delightful little guy up, and we will place him in the Forever Home that is best suited to his needs. We look forward to finding Jeremy that dream home!
Important notes about puppies: We do not place puppies as presents or surprises. The entire prospective adopting family needs to come to Hemet to meet Jeremy. Also, please remember that puppies require a lot of care, attention, and training, and they do chew on things. The decision to get a puppy and raise it to be a healthy, happy, and well-adjusted dog is a serious commitment.
Please note that an approved Adoption Application is the first step in a more thorough interview process that is designed to match each dog to exactly the right family, and that the final decision rests with the dog's case manager.
