Look who's part of the BARC family!



Sam's life has been a tough one.  In 2008, someone beat him and left him for dead in a ditch.  It was probably a man who hunted since Sam is afraid of a man with a hunting rifle.  As soon as the man sits down and puts away the gun, he is ok. Luckily he was found and brought to a shelter who contacted a fellow ESS Rescue.  Next he went to foster care where he was taught that love from the human race existed.  Soon he was off to a new home with a family and two kids.  He was in heaven.  But tragedy struck this 4 year old boy again. His human "Dad" was killed in a tragic accident last fall.  Mom had just had her third baby ten days before.  She had to go to work and there has been less time for Sam.  Mom loves him, the kids love him, but they know it's not the right place for him anymore.  He needs more time to be loved.  Mom knew us from our work with her in 2008. She called us and asked for our help in finding him a new home.  If you have a place in your home and more importantly YOUR HEART, for this very sweet guy, please let us know.  Fill out an application to adopt today... Sam is waiting. 

NEWS:  Sam's family is leaving the state before May.  He can't go with them.  Do you have room for him in your heart and your home?


While loved dearly by his Mom, she can no longer afford to take care of him.  Except for the lady who bred him, his current human Mom is the only home he has ever known.  As you can see he is very tolerant of the little ones so makes a super family pet. But their situation has radically changed, they have moved to a smaller place and there isn't much money to go around.  Sadly enough, the dollars that need to be used to take care of Elvis have to be used somewhere else.  Mom is heartbroken, but knows it is the best thing for him.  He is a big, healthy boy who just needs to get into the right situation, maybe it is yours.  Get in touch with us and we will tell you everything about him!


Shelby is a 7 year old spayed young lady, whose life has taken another turn in a direction she didn't want to go. Adopted three years ago by a husband and wife living in the city/suburbs, everything has suddenly changed.  Mom and Dad aren't together anymore and her favorite person was Dad.  Her favorite person moved into an apartment where he couldn't take her and so she left her home and traveled many miles with her human mom to live in the country.  Poor Shelby is unhappy.  She isn't used to the country, it frightens her and she misses her man terribly!  Shelby has always done well with adults and children. She loves to be petted and fussed over.  She has had small children shower her with kisses and she's been very well behaved.

While Shelby has not lived with cats, since she doesn't like other dogs at all, probably she would be better off in a home where she is the only animal. Overall, she is a mellow, sweet dog at home as long as she is not left alone. She has recently  become extremely anxious and being in the country with its sounds is making it worse for her.  She is very unhappy.  Prior to this upheaval, her separation anxiety was minimal.  Crate training at this point is not a solution as she becomes more stressed.  Medication prescribed by her vet is not doing much.

What Shelby needs is a man!  And probably one that lives in an area like what she has been used to.  This has all been too much for her AND for her mom.  A larger household where someone could be with her more would be ideal.

If you think you might be able to provide the love and the atmosphere that this beautiful, lovely and sweet dog needs, please get in touch with us.  She is anxiously waiting for a good nights' sleep!


Keebler is a 2.5 year old liver and white teenager, whose life has taken a turn in a direction he didn't want to go. His home is in turmoil and there is lots of tension. It has been making his outlook on life a little cloudy.  He has decided he needs a new place to live. 

Keebler can tell you a lot more about himself if you would like.  All you need to do is contact us and we will get you in touch with him!

If you think you might be able to provide the love and the atmosphere that this beautiful, lovely and sweet dog needs, please get in touch with us.  He is anxiously waiting!


Two year old Pierce is a young man who needs your attention.  He loves his people and wants to spend all of his time with them.  He doesn't want to be alone.  He is exuberant!  Sometimes TOO exuberant which annoys his other canine companions.

Like any youngster there are a lot of things he could be better at, but he needs a good Springer knowledgable teacher who is willing to spend a good deal  of time with him. 

Maybe that is you!

Contact us to find out more about Pierce!

Great News:  Gabby's breeder took her back home again where she is now happily residing!

Gabby really needs your help.  Her current canine companions do not make her happy.  She wants all the human attention for herself.  Gabby will be six in June and currently lives in the Northeast.

If you have a home for Gabby with NO OTHER DOGS!!!!  (Especially females)... contact us soon!

Dorothy made the trek to New York to meet her new family from Maine and then off she went to a new snow-covered home.  With lots of walking trails and a pond (ok well right now it's a "FROZEN" pond) Dorothy tells us she is in heaven! And we are glad!


Whoppa would be very pleased to hear that Teva is able to spend the rest of her days living with a family she has known all her life!  Good for her, good for them!


All the way from California, Cooper joined his new Springer sister in Pennsylvania.  He couldn't be happier!
