This sweet baby came to Maryland from Florida. He was picked up as a stray. After ERU rescued Winter he was found to have bilateral luxated patellas and a fractured pelvis, most likely from a previous accident. Winter had his first surgery and is recuperating very well. Winter is one of the sweetest eskie boys; he is very mellow and mature. The shelter listed him as 2 and the vet agrees that he is a young dog. Winter does great with all of the eskies here and has been exposed to cats. He will be on sponsorship status until he is completely recovered from all three surgeries (two luxated patellas and FHO for hip). If you can help us with Winter's expenses (around $2600) we would be extremely grateful.
Winter was moved to a home in Mississippi where he will get the love and care he needs and deserves.

Good with Dogs
Whenever possible Eskie Rescuers United tries to adopt out its dogs locally (or at least to adopters in adjoining states to where I'm being fostered). Please note that ERU processes LOCAL adoption applications before considering those from out of state.
If I'm not local to you, as explained above, and you really have your heart set on me, you will have to make special arrangements so ERU can get me to you safely (for example, flying me to you at your own expense, or paying a transport group to drive me to you). Note: We may ask that you to make a donation to cover transport costs if the distance is great and we have trouble finding transport drivers. There is an adoption fee required; and, please be aware, Eskie Rescuers United will not adopt out its dogs as outdoor dogs.
