Thanks to everyone who contributed to Joy's surgery and ongoing care and followed her story on social media.

Joy is a mere 22 pounds of Springer love. There is a lot of heart in this pretty little Springer girl and she has a story to be told. Joy was born with a condition that affected her two front legs. Thanks to the surgery she underwent while in ESRA's care, she is now able to walk and run just like any Springer pup.

There is also a reason this little pup is named Joy. She was a happy girl before her surgery and is an ecstatically happy girl now. She loves people, the outdoors and adores Frisbees! She also enjoys her foster mom’s slippers but she does not chew them - just walks around with them in her mouth.

She is very smart and already knows the commands “Sit,” “Wait” and “Come” and her foster mom is working on "Off." She adores riding in the car and is a good girl at the vet.

Joy does have some special needs due to her fragile front legs. She would love to find a young, active family where she is the only dog and with no young children. She needs to avoid situations where she might be injured playing.

Are you Joy’s special adopter? This spunky little pup is ready for her new family and will spread love and joy forever!
