Meet Tucker! This beautiful boy is looking for his Forever Family. Tucker lives and loves life to the fullest. He is a people pleaser, and he needs an experienced adopter to set boundaries and keep him on a healthy routine. He loves to be around people, to explore the woods, and to chase squirrels. All in all, Tucker is one happy boy!

Are you looking for a loving companion? Throw a ball or a stick! Tucker enjoys fetching/chasing balls and toys. Tucker also really enjoys his walks. He has great leash manners, and he would love to stroll around the neighborhood, a farm, some fields, a lake, or anywhere else.

Tucker is housetrained. He does fine in the household when he is by himself. Because he is active and energetic, he will need a long walk, jog, or run beforehand if you plan to leave him alone in the house for long periods of time. (A tired dog is a good dog!) After a good exercise adventure, Tucker enjoys lying out on the deck watching people walk by and checking out the happenings in the neighborhood.

Although Tucker will tolerate other canines for a short period of time, he will need to be the only dog in his Forever Home. He finds it very challenging to share his toys or the attention of humans with other dogs. He also has a strong prey drive, so his Forever Home should not have cats. Tucker was surrendered to ESRA because he is very nervous around children. Therefore, his Forever Home should be one with just adults.

Are you looking for a happy and wonderful dog to provide you with companionship? Do you enjoy a sweet Springer lying in a little ball, waiting for your attention? Are you a homebody who wants to bond with a sweet boy? Then Tucker is your guy! If you would like to make Tucker a member of your family, contact his case managers at the e-mail address below.

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.

Please read the Adoption FAQ and get an Adoption Application approved before inquiring about Tucker.

ESRA#:2017-140MI
Status: Adopted
Date:2017-07-20
  
Age:9 years
Gender:Male
Color:Liver & White
Weight:59 lbs
Variety:Bench

SPECIAL NOTE: Because of Dyson's extreme shyness around new people, we have come to realize that it will be best for him if his potential adopters live within a reasonable, convenient distance from the greater Detroit area. If that is the case, his prospective family can make multiple visits to Dyson's foster home in order to get to know him and see his true nature before the adoption is finalized.
This bright-eyed, handsome guy is Dyson. His past is a mystery because he was found as a stray. But one thing is certain--Dyson is a very sweet boy who is looking intently through his soulful, golden eyes, searching for his true human love connection. He seeks devotion, loyalty, patience, and tender companionship from a dog-savvy Forever Family.

Dyson is a love sponge who follows his people everywhere, perhaps because he was a stray and does not want to lose track of his new human lifeline. His total Velcro tendencies are lessening a bit the longer he is in his foster home. Dyson still keeps track of his family's whereabouts, but he is not at their heels all the time now. A typical Springer, Dyson adores his people and simply wants to be where they are. He is pretty low key and low maintenance inside his foster home, typically lying at the feet of his mom or dad.

This smart boy is beginning to learn basic commands, and he comes when called in the yard. He will require further obedience training, since he seems to lack much previous teaching. When he is walking on lead, Dyson pulls at first but then settles down and walks along nicely. He would benefit tremendously from daily walks with his Forever Family for exercise and to improve his leash manners.

Because Dyson has an average energy level, playing in the yard satisfies his physical and mental needs. A fenced yard at his Forever Home would be a bonus so that he can actively explore outdoors. He is not overly prey driven. He happily chases birds, chipmunks, squirrels, and rabbits, though not with tremendous speed! Inside the house, Dyson shows little interest in dog toys or balls. He was recently intrigued with an outdoor fetch game his foster sister played, and he was excited enough to then carry around his own toy, but he would not release his prized possession.

Dyson has polite house manners with no inappropriate behavior, and he is trustworthy when left home alone with his foster siblings. He did countersurf a couple of times shortly after arriving at his foster home, likely due to the newness of his environment and the wonderful-smelling temptations in the kitchen! His conversion to a grain-free salmon kibble diet has worked wonders for his weight loss. Dyson eats next to the resident dogs with no issues or aggression. He finishes his chow first and then casually walks away until his foster siblings have finished their meals.

Although he is not a leader, Dyson is quite independent, possibly because he was on his own as a stray. He is a gentle giant who gets along splendidly with the resident Springers in his foster home. Dyson would be thrilled to have a canine friend in his Forever Home. He genuinely enjoys the company of other dogs, and he benefits from being a pack member. Dyson is afraid of cats, so a family with a feline would not be a good match. He has not been exposed to children, but he would be best in a household without kids because is a sensitive boy who can be fearful with excessive commotion.

Dyson loves his big, fluffy dog bed, and he has been known to roll over on his back for a morning belly rub. He has made no attempt to get on the human bed with his foster family, even when the resident dogs pile up there. He has only ventured onto other furniture a couple of times. Dyson is super on car rides, sitting or lying in the back seat with ease. He was good for the vet and the groomer. Like many dogs, he really does not like to have his feet handled or touched. Recent fireworks were also bothersome to Dyson.

This sweet boy is extremely attached to his foster family; they have developed a trusting, loving bond. This sense of security with his humans is the magic key to Dyson's peace and happiness. He is not an overly affectionate guy. He does appreciate attention and belly rubs, but he is cautious if he is hugged or held tightly. He does, however, prefer to be near his people, even when that means being directly at their sides, leaning in to feel their physical presence!

Dyson's one issue is that he is very timid and unsure of people whom he does not yet know and trust. Something in his past has triggered this nervous and fearful reaction. He shows no aggression, only anxiety and apprehension. He is cautious about being petted or touched when he first encounters new faces, but he does warm up and relax with time. In due course, he gains enough confidence to meet these well-intentioned strangers and to seek gentle contact. Dyson's foster family is working diligently to help him overcome his shyness. They encourage new friends to entice Dyson slowly, calmly, and repeatedly with a tempting treat which he eventually takes sweetly and enjoys. The end result is a new and beautiful human/animal friendship. Dyson's Forever Family must accept, respect, and understand the fact that he requires calm, gentle, patient interactions in social settings.

Because of Dyson's insecurities, he needs to be in a Forever Home with someone there most of the time. Spending your days with Dyson will bring pleasure to you and joy to him. This incredibly cute boy is a good fellow with a huge heart, and he absolutely deserves all the wonders a fresh start can offer him. He is housetrained, neutered, current on vaccinations, and microchipped, and he is ready to meet his Forever Family!

Please read the Adoption FAQ and get an Adoption Application approved before inquiring about Dyson.

Age:5 years

Weight:45 lbs
Variety:Bench
When Newman looks into your eyes, it is as if he is looking into your soul. His sweet, gentle personality will engage you right away. He has the perfect balance of energy and peacefulness, enjoying chasing a fat squirrel, then lying at your feet for hours afterward. Newman is a loyal companion, always staying close by your side day and night. His affectionate nature brings you sweet kisses in the morning, and he is always available for cuddling. This gorgeous guy is gentle and loving with children of all ages, and he has always found a friend in another dog on the street or in the home. Newman has been living with a small poodle for the last nine months, and they have become fast friends.

Newman has found ESRA after a few different homes. He started life with a family who reportedly lost their home and had to give him to a shelter. Newman was rescued from the shelter by an older man who was not strong enough to care for him, walk him, and give him the energy releases he needs during the day. Newman then found his way to a family of four (two children and two parents) who have absolutely loved having him in their household. If it weren't for their busy work and travel schedules, the family would never let him go. However, they know that it is best for Newman to be with a family that will leave home less frequently. When his new adopters do travel, they must plan to either take him along or have someone care for him in an environment where he is not in a kennel. Newman loves companionship and instantly bonds with his people, so being able to stay near them is important for him.

The ideal Forever Home for Newman will be one where at least one person is frequently home. When everyone is away for a long period, arrangements should be made to have someone available to take him for a walk or out to play. Newman will benefit from a fenced yard and lots of exercise. He loves to run, play with toys, chew on a rawhide, and play with other dogs. Newman has been very well taken care of. He is healthy and up to date on all vaccines.

If you are able to give Newman the stability, companionship, and exercise he deserves, please contact his case manager right away. This special boy just wants to be your new best friend!

Please read the Adoption FAQ and get an Adoption Application approved before inquiring about Newman.

Age:3 years
Gender:Male
Color:L&W Tricolor
Weight:66 lbs
Variety:Field
Bosco is a typical "Springer clinger" who always wants to be close to his people. A loving boy, he adores being petted and getting attention.

Bosco has a list of things he enjoys: squeaky toys, rawhides, exercise, and swimming (especially after ducks or geese!). He is always "hunting," so bunnies, birds, and squirrels should beware. Bosco has an abundance of energy, and he really likes walks. He's strong on a leash and walks best with a gentle leader, becoming more comfortable with it the longer he walks.

This smart boy knows Sit and is learning Stay and Lie Down. He rides well in the car. Bosco is still working on recall when his name is called, but he's eager to learn and to please. The best thing his new family could do for Bosco would be to enroll him in basic obedience training. He's like a big puppy! He would benefit from a course that would challenge him and give him a training foundation.

Bosco lives with another dog in his foster home, but he wants to be the dominant dog in the household, so his ideal Forever Home would have him as the only dog. However, Bosco does play well with other dogs in a large-pack setting like a dog park.

If you're looking for a handsome Velcro boy who will reward your love with his, consider Bosco. He is ready to meet his adoring new family!

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.

Here is Baxter, a wonderful boy who seeks your attention and affection. He has great energy, and he is eager to please his foster family.

Baxter is housetrained and crate trained. He will need regular exercise, and he would benefit from obedience training courses. Baxter enjoys taking car rides, going for long walks around the neighborhood, and snoozing at your feet. His foster family thinks that he could be a great hunter because he has a natural talent for chasing squirrels, rabbits, birds, and other small critters.

This youngster is smart, and he catches on quite quickly. Although Baxter currently lives with other dogs, his Forever Home should have no other resident dogs, as he prefers not to share the attention of the family members. Baxter does fine with older, dog-savvy children.

Baxter would be a great companion if you are looking for a Springer shadow. He is ready to go for walks and take in the world with you, and of course he is always up for a good game of fetch in the backyard. He is a sweet boy who deserves a home to call his own. Please let us know if you would like to meet Baxter!

Variety:Field
Please meet our playful girl, Pippa. This cutie came to ESRA after her family determined that she had too much energy for their lifestyle. Pippa just turned one on May 14, so she still has that fun-loving puppy in her. She loves to run and play all the time. She has a hunter's heart along with the playfulness of a kindergartener. For this reason, Pippa’s Forever Home should have a fenced yard.

This active and incredibly smart girl likes nothing more than to stretch her legs in the yard or the dog park. She'd be well suited to an active person or family who wants an outgoing and friendly companion. If you can lob a tennis ball, you'll have a friend for life. Pippa is a sporty girl who can Fetch, Sit, Drop It, and Leave It. She comes when she's called (unless she's hot on the trail of a squirrel!). Pippa is very loving, and she likes to wind down at the end of the day by being held and snuggled.

Pippa is completely housetrained. She is microchipped, spayed, and up to date on all vetting. She doesn’t have any medical issues, but she is prone to piddling when she meets someone new or when she gets too excited.

Pippa lives with two other Springers whom she dearly loves. They wrestle and play several times a day. Therefore, a playful canine brother or sister in her Forever Family would be wonderful! There are a several dogs in the neighborhood, and Pippa gets along with all of them. She doesn’t have much experience around cats. She has met the neighbor’s cat, who just stares at her. But when Pippa is outdoors, she tends to bark at any cats she sees.

Although Pippa was crate trained by her original owners, we’re hoping that she goes to a home where she doesn’t have to spend too much time crated. Pippa sleeps on the floor near her foster parents’ bed. She is content there, but of course she would be more than happy to sleep with her humans if she was invited. Pippa has a great appetite, and she likes to counter surf as many Springers do. She’s clearly not vertically challenged! Pippa loves to have chew toys. She’s still very much a puppy with a need to chew. She has not damaged anything in her foster home, but her foster parents make sure that she has plenty of appropriate things to chew.

If you love the Springer breed, you’ll love Pippa. Contact her case manager right away if you have the time and energy to devote to this very special girl.

Please read the Adoption FAQ and get an Adoption Application approved before inquiring about Pippa.

Bella is a petite little beauty who was surrendered to a humane society by her previous family as they could no longer care for her. Fortunately, Bella ended up in the good hands of ESRA.

This girl has bonded with her foster mom quite quickly. Bella is a typical Velcro Springer who follows her new momma everywhere. Bella is very loving. She craves affection, and she lets you know that by rolling over for a belly rub or by nudging you with her nose or paw. However, if you ignore her, Bella will just lie down at your feet.

Bella has many great traits. She is housetrained, is a wonderful sleeper, and is a terrific car rider. She loves to go bye-bye in the car, riding shotgun. Bella adores romping around and having fun with her foster brother. They play really well together! She also likes to sit on your lap or sleep in bed with you. Bella does not take up much room, as she is a tiny girl!

There are three resident canines in Bella's foster home, and she does fine with them all. Being a sporty Springer, she will require daily exercise. She is very fieldy, so she would thrive in a Forever Home where she has the opportunity to run off lead. Bella's foster home is nestled on wooded acres, and she loves to hunt on her daily hikes. Bella comes right back when she is called. She is a fabulous listener, and she truly wants to please her people.

Bella allows her foster mom and dad to do anything to her, including giving her a bath, trimming her hair, and cleaning her ears. She knows the basic commands Sit, Down, Shake, Come, Stay, and Release from Stay. Although Bella is super gentle with her foster parents, she will require a Forever Family that can provide her with the consistent leadership that she seems to have lacked in her previous life.

Bella is up to date on all vaccinations and has been spayed. She has no major health issues although she has had a few bouts of pancreatitis. This can be easily and economically controlled with a proper low-fat diet and no table scraps. Bella would do best in a Forever Home with children at least ten years old. This sweet girl is looking for an active Forever Family who will give her plenty of exercise, doting attention, and true love.

Please read the Adoption FAQ and get an Adoption Application approved before inquiring about Bella.

Thinking about bringing Bobby or another wonderful Senior Springer into your family? Read why rescuing Senior Springers is a top priority for ESRA.
Bobby loves to give kisses, and he longs for a Forever Family who will shower him with tender loving care. He may be ten, but he's in great health and acts much younger than his age!

He loves to run, but he will settle down on a couch. Bobby has the softest fur you can imagine, and he loves to have you stroke it while he sits next to you.

Bobby is treat motivated and submissive, except when it comes to cats. He does well with other dogs and doesn't mind being lower in the pack. But when a cat appears, Bobby's attitude changes and the chasing and barking begin.

His submissive nature means that Bobby would be best in a home where voices aren't raised. He does well when he is left home with free run of house. He also does fine in a crate, although doesn't need one. Bobby loves to carry soft toys or shoes in his mouth. He won't chew a shoe but will rather hide it and then watch you look for the "other" shoe!

In Bobby's last home, his owner was ill, and it was a very hard goodbye for both Bobby and his person. All this handsome boy really wants is a family to provide him with the love, attention, and nurturing he needs and deserves.

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.

Age:15 months
Gender:Female
Color:Black & White
Weight:50 lbs
Variety:Mix
We already know what you're thinking: "Sheba doesn't look much like a Springer!" While that's true, she was a dog we couldn't turn away. Sheba came from a situation in which there weren't resources available to correct her congenital eye condition, entropion. This had caused Sheba's eyelids to turn inward and rub on her corneas.

Within two days of arriving in foster care, Sheba had her eyes surgically fixed. While she had always been able to see, it's clear that she is, at last, in a world of comfort. It was painful to look at her before, but now we can see her beautiful brown eyes!

Sheba is a young girl with a good deal of energy. She is a quick study and would benefit from some obedience classes to help her learn some basics and to establish her bond with her new family. In her foster home, Sheba has quickly learned the command Sit.

This sweet girl loves to love. She frequently seeks out people for attention, and she enjoys snuggling up on the couch or in bed. She also likes to give kisses by licking! If there is any Springer in her, it's demonstrated in this Velcro quality.

Because of Sheba's puppy-like energy, she hasn't mastered good body boundaries, so she may be overwhelming for young children. She tends to jump up with excitement. Therefore, any children in her Forever Home should be adolescents.

We don't know about Sheba's interaction with cats, but her foster home includes other Springers who don't always appreciate her youthful energy. We recommend that any resident dogs be of comparable energy to match this spunky girl. Sheba would also benefit from a fenced yard so she can expend her energy safely.

Sheba loves to chew on bully sticks or rawhides. She won't tolerate being crated, but she has slowly earned free rein of the house when the people are gone.

This lovely girl has soft fur, a beautiful tick-marked coat, and cute black ears. What Sheba wants most is a family to snuggle with her and give her the time and attention she deserves. We can see that Sheba's future is bright!

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.

When Manny came into our care, he qualified to become a member of our Extreme Makeover program. Click here to read about how ESRA made him look and feel so much better!
Manny is a sweet boy. Although he was found as a neglected stray, Manny transformed into our adorable senior prince! He is a super-loving Springer who shows his foster family his affection daily.  Manny loves his pets and scratches. He loves attention from anyone!

Looking for an addition to your pack? Manny enjoys the resident dog and spends hours snuggling with him. He gets along great with other dogs and has no trouble making friends with everyone. Manny sleeps on his dog bed next to his foster mom’s bed. He doesn’t care to get on furniture but would rather sit next to you. Manny is crate trained.

Manny feels like a million bucks!  This handsome senior was recently neutered, had several bumps removed and his teeth polished. Manny is mostly deaf but can hear loud and high-pitched noises, including loud whistles, hand clapping or clatter. 

Manny is looking for a Forever Home to give him the love and attention he deserves (and likely missed out on for most of his life). He has great energy and enjoys the occasional run around outside, romp at the dog park or walk around the neighborhood.  Manny likes to explore and smell everything. Due to his partial hearing loss and exploration talents, his Forever Home should have a fenced yard or should be located in a remote area.

Could you be the Forever Family Manny is patiently waiting for? Are you looking for a loyal and loving companion?

Age:8 years
Gender:Female
Color:Black & White
Weight:64 lbs

Sweet Penny was found in a kennel in a roadside ditch, from which she was rescued by a good samaritan. ESRA welcomed her and found that she has hypothyroidism, which has caused her to become overweight. Blood tests revealed that Penny is very healthy despite the extra weight. Thyroid regulation medication costs only about fifteen dollars a month, and she will likely stay on this medicine for the rest of her life to regulate her weight.

When Penny came into our program, she weighed almost eighty pounds, but she has dropped sixteen of those pounds already. Her energy has improved, and she's getting her girlish figure back. Penny has more weight to lose to get to her goal weight of about forty, and her foster family is working diligently to help her. She loves to sit in a doggie bed all day, but she does need someone to walk her in order to help her shape up. She is very easy to walk, and she rarely pulls.

Penny is likely a Springer/border collie mix, but she has the sweet disposition that is known in the Springer breed. Because she doesn't like the fast action that young kids can present, Penny would do great in a home with children aged twelve and up or in an all-adult household. She is great with other dogs, and she goes to the door to signal when she has to go potty.

This easy keeper is looking forward to finding a Forever Family that she can love. If you think that might be your family, please contact her case managers at the e-mail address below.

In addition to enjoying car rides, Corey likes to go for long walks. She can't get enough of walking along the shore of the lake! She has great recall and will come when called. Corey knows many commands, and most of all she aims to please her people.

If you are searching for a sweet, loving, and gentle Springer, Corey is the one for you. She has a great disposition and will be a truly wonderful member of her Forever Family. This fine lady deserves the best!

Weight:67 lbs
Variety:Bench
Ruby is definitely a gem. This big, goofy girl is young but fairly mellow for her age. She loves belly rubs and giving kisses. She knows basic commands, and she enjoys running to fetch a ball. She's even good at releasing the ball so you can throw it again.

Ruby is housetrained and has free rein of the house when her foster family is away. She lives with a canine foster brother, and she does well with both the dog and the twelve-year-old human boy in the home. Ruby walks well on a leash and has good recall when she is off leash. She is food motivated and takes treats gently. Outside, Ruby is prey driven and likes to chase squirrels and rabbits. She has also shown that she would chase cats if given the chance, so her adoptive home should be cat free.

We suspect that Ruby may be mixed with another breed, but as her foster dad says, "She is such a good-looking dog, so whatever she is mixed with blended well with Springers. She does have a big head, but aside from the larger head and overall size, she is all Springer. She has been an easy keeper, with no accidents, chewing, or counter surfing. The previous owner did an awfully good job training her."

This young, sweet girl is looking for just the right Forever Family to love. If you think that might be your family, please contact her case managers right away.

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.

Please read the Adoption FAQ and get an Adoption Application approved before inquiring about Ruby.

Baxter is a sweet and gentle Springer who really enjoys being active with his foster family. He loves to be involved in whatever is happening in the home. Baxter also enjoys taking a nap right next to his people. His foster family describes him as a very respectable and obedient boy.

While Baxter loves all attention, he tends to be more comfortable around women, although he did come to love his foster dad after a bit of time had passed. Baxter has a special way of connecting with his people and taking his place in their hearts once he has become comfortable. Any children in his Forever Home should be at least thirteen years old. The perfect environment for Baxter would be one in which he will be the only dog. Although he gets along fine with the resident dog in his foster home, Baxter really deserves to be "the king of the castle."

Baxter has had free rein of the house since his first day in foster care. He is very respectful of the rules, and he behaves himself while his foster parents are away, although he is always very excited to see his foster family when they return! Baxter is reliably housetrained. He prefers to sleep in the humans' bed, but he is content sleeping on the couch.

His foster family recommends a calm and patient family for Baxter. It takes some time to gain his trust, but once he feels secure with you, he is a real sweetheart. Baxter shows an excellent balance of independence and the desire to be with his family. Are you looking for a lovely boy to cuddle and pet? This special guy could be your next loyal companion!

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.

Please read the Adoption FAQ and get an Adoption Application approved before inquiring about Baxter.
