Ginnie & Puppies in MN



Miss Ginnie was brought into NESR in April.  Being very small (20 pounds) we had doubts about her breed but her body shape and coat leans toward the ES-y part of the dog world.  And, her temperament is beyond wonderful.  After being in her foster home for a few weeks suspicions arose.  And, yes, it was discovered that Miss Ginnie was part of a package deal.  With no idea about the father of the pups, concerns about her health arose.  Fortunately, four healthy, appropriately-sized puppies were born and Ginnie began Phase Two of motherhood.

Ginnie is Adopted!  Meanwhile, Ginnie’s adopter is waiting for the puppies to grow up and find homes so Ginnie can leave her foster home.  We hope to have placements for the pups so they can leave their foster home when they are 8-9 weeks old.  

Introducing Miss Ginnie’s puppies- (they are four weeks old so we can’t give much detail yet)   Can you guess the ‘theme’?


Helen-  Dark sable.  Her back paws have white toes and she wears a small white lightning streak down her chest

Andy- White and shaded sable coat.  The larger pup of the four

Emmett-  White and dark shade sable.

Howard- Shaded sable and a sporty thin white collar, white chest

If you are interested in adopting one of Ginnie’s pups contact their foster mom and dad at  Place NESR Puppy in the subject heading.  Placement of puppies is determined by NESR.  While you can indicate a preference for a specific puppy on your Adoption Application, the final decision is based on puppy temperament, energy level, and other factors.  We place puppies/dogs in the home that is felt to best meet their needs.  Please keep in mind that the pedigree of these pups is really, really unknown.  We’re assuming they will be their mother’s size or larger.  Ginnie is the size of a large cat.  We have no idea if there is any English Shepherd in these pups.  Herding instinct and other ES traits may or may not be exhibited by these pups.  


Rebel in TN



Rebel is a 2 year old, black and white English Shepherd.  He is a wonderful companion that has had a lot of training. He knows his basic commands, walks very well on a leash, has earned his CGC and recently received his pet therapy certification with his foster mom. He gets along well with other dogs and loves everyone he meets. He has undergone heart worm treatment and is on preventative. He is neutered and up to date on vaccinations. Rebel is a wonderful companion with amazing potential to continue on in obedience or therapy work. As with most English Shepherds, he requires an effective leader and would do best with someone committed to continuing his training. 

For more information about Rebel please contact Amy Dorsch  .

Since we have not seen or evaluated these dogs, we cannot make any representation or take responsibility for any dog's temperament or health. Prospective adopters should contact the owner of a dog directly.

Other Rescue Organizations
The following dogs are with other Rescue Organizations and are possibly not English Shepherds but they are English Shepherdish enough to be listed here. All adoptions are handled by the fostering Rescue Group. Please contact them or visit their web sites for more info about these dogs and other fine dogs they have in rescue!

PetFinder is a website devoted to listing dogs from shelters and rescue groups around the country. You can search PetFinder by breed or region to find the right dog for your family.

There are often English Shepherds listed on the PetFinder pages although sometimes the breed identification seems a little iffy. However, here are some dogs currently on the PetFinder website who are either ES or ESy. NESR has no connections with any of these organizations and makes no promises regarding the dogs listed here from PetFinders. We offer this list in the interest of one stop shopping...

If you have any questions about finding what you're looking for on PetFinders email Lynn for help.

NESR performs a temperament evaluation on all dogs it is considering bringing into rescue. NESR reserves the right to decline any dog based on the needs/temperament of the dog and the qualifications of foster homes available at the time.
