Age:8 years

Sweet Lucy is a little lovebug who wants to be with her people every second of the day. She is a textbook example of a Velcro Springer. Lucy loves ALL humans and is very affectionate with anyone who gives her attention. Her foster dad describes her as smart and spunky. She has learned how to open an unsecured gate but has no interest in running away -- instead, she races to find her people.

Lucy is quiet in the house, only barking when she hears other dogs start barking. However, if you sing to her, she will join right in with a round of Springer "woo woos" and howling. She enjoys her walks and is learning not to pull. She would do well with some training that uses positive reinforcement because she is so eager to please.

Lucy does need to be an only dog or introduced carefully to a potential doggie sibling. This little lady is not sure why she should have to share the human attention with other dogs. Also, children in the home need to be 12 or older. She will make a wonderful, loyal, loving companion for a lucky adopter!

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

RueBee was given her name because she is quite the talker. As you can probably guess, Rue-Rue is her favorite song to sing. She is a beautiful black and white girl who came into ESRA with some other family members. She is heartworm negative and up to date on her vaccinations.

Until RueBee came into rescue, she spent her life outside. She is thrilled to now be an inside dog living the good life in her foster home! RueBee would prefer to have her human all to herself. She is currently living with two other female dogs that are as laid back as she is, and she has no problems. She is fine with cats and does well with children over 9 years old. Young children might be too much for this mellow gal. RueBee would be a wonderful companion for a retired adopter or someone who could spend a lot of time with her. Her favorite pastime is hugging up to her foster Mom, trying to convince her it is time for a nap. She is also a great watch dog and will let you know if someone enters the yard.

RueBee's foster mom reports that she is a sweetheart, outgoing and a very happy girl. RueBee knows the commands "Sit" and "Come" and is completely housetrained. She is discovering love, attention and companionship under ESRA's care. This lovely girl will Rue-Rue with joy when she is adopted and home at last!

Sweet baby Tex should come with a warning label that reads “Super Cuteness Alert!”

Tex was originally purchased by a college student in Texas, who quickly realized that a Springer puppy did not fit into her busy schedule. She brought Tex to a family member in North Carolina who couldn't keep him and turned him over to ESRA. Through absolutely no fault of his own, little Tex is in his third home at just 5½ months old.

Tex loves life and life loves Tex! This little guy has the spunk, vigor and sweet personality that we all love in the English Springer Spaniel. Tex is a bit on the small side – weighing just 21 pounds right now!

Tex is housetrained, crate trained and knows Sit, Come and Off. He self-entertains beautifully! He loves toys of all kinds and will run and toss them in the air. Tex also gives the sweetest kisses. He is up to date on vaccinations and will be neutered prior to placement.

Tex is enjoying the company of other dogs and two cats in his foster home and gets along great with everyone. He is having a blast running the zoomies with the resident 3-year old female Springer. Although he cannot yet keep up with her, it is not for lack of trying!

Tex would benefit from continued training on manners in his Forever Home. He is very smart and soaks up all the training he is getting in his foster home!

Who is ready for some joyous, life-loving energy that comes in a sweet package that also happens to be super cute?

Age:8 years

Diamond is a sweet, calm boy who came to ESRA in extremely poor shape. At the time of rescue, he was malnourished and so weak that he could not walk, as well as heartworm positive -- truly a diamond in the rough. A good Samaritan rescued Diamond and another dog from poor living conditions. It is believed that Diamond had NEVER seen a veterinarian prior to rescue.

He has now been neutered, completed his heartworm treatment and put on some much-needed pounds. He’s been an excellent patient, quiet and content to snuggle and rest with his new best friend in foster care, Sadie.

Diamond knows his name and responds enthusiastically to “Let’s Eat!” He is housetrained and content in his crate or in Sadie’s crate. They spend most of their time together. His one quirk is that he doesn’t like to use the doggie door but would rather wait for a human to let him out.

Diamond would be happiest in a calm household with the companionship of another dog. Though we are not offering them as a bonded pair, it would be wonderful if Diamond and his best friend Sadie could stay together.

Won’t you consider giving this gem of a boy a better life? He will be eternally grateful.

Age:2 years

Introducing Marlie, a sweet bundle of Springer energy! This pretty little girl loves to play almost as much as she loves to cuddle. She’s always ready for a game of chase and is a destroyer of stuffed toys. She loves to be the center of attention and quickly charms everyone she meets.

Marlie is looking for an active family with a fenced yard. We think she would do great with some older kids who would play with her in the yard. An all-adult home would be fine, too. She just needs someone (or several people) ready and willing to spend time with her and help her settle into her Forever Home. She seems to like other dogs out and about but has not lived with another dog. We think she would be very happy as an only dog, soaking up all the attention she deserves.

We think Marlie must have spent some time on her own or banished outside. She came into rescue very underweight and had to be taught how to use the stairs. She is enthusiastic and eager to please and is a great candidate for positive reinforcement-based training. Her foster family has given her a refresher course in housetraining and she is learning some commands, but will need additional practice on leash walking and greeting friends with all four paws on the floor.

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

Hi everyone! I am Blaze and I’m looking for a great Forever Home.

When I first came into rescue, I was heartworm positive and my coat was in such bad shape that it had to be shaved down. But now I’m healthy, done with my heartworm treatment and handsome, with a shiny dark liver coat.

Do you love snuggles? My greatest joy is to be near you. Do you like going on outings to the park, hiking, near water? I love all of these things. In my foster home there is a baby pool and I love to play in it. I am up for all adventures as long as we are together.

Is your yard coming under siege from squirrels? Lizards? Put me in, Coach! I will chase those critters right back up the trees!

Are you finding your dining entertainment is getting lackluster? I can help! While my foster mom gets our meals ready, I like to pull all the beds out of the crates and strut around the house with them while tossing them in the air. Are your evenings at home just getting too quiet? I love, love, love squeaky toys -- the louder the better!

Do you have other furry ones in your home? I am totally cool with this. I peacefully live in my foster home with several dogs and two cats. There is a super cute 3-year old female Springer at my foster home and we love to play together.

I am housetrained and crate -trained. I know Sit, Come and Off. I walk really well on a leash too. I also LOVE to be groomed – brushing, bathing, clippers, and toenails. As long as I am being touched, my world is perfect! My vet and staff love me too; they say I am a model patient!

I do have one tiny little confession to make. I have been known to swipe a package of cheese, the random unattended sandwich, nicely buttered toast – well, you get the idea. I am working really hard on this little countersurfing habit and my foster mom says I am making great progress!

With all I bring to the table, I bet you are wondering what I expect in return? Well, it is really quite simple – lots of loving, snuggling, and kisses; a safe and secure environment; healthy food; regular vet care; lots of adventures with you; learning more manners; squeaky toys; and did I mention snuggling? Ready when you are!

Love, Blaze

Weight:66 lbs

Introducing Trooper, a tall, dark and handsome Springer guy looking for love. This 66-pounder is a smart, friendly guy interested in walks, long conversations and sports. He’s just an all-around nice dog.

Trooper knows his basic commands and is housetrained. He is a fast learner who will pick up on the routine at his Forever Home in record time! He gets excited when the leash comes up and pulls at first, but not too much. His manners are good too – no countersurfing or jumping up on people from this boy.

He gets along great with adults and the young teens in his foster home and we expect he would also be fine with respectful younger children. He does well with the resident dogs. Though he seems interested in chasing cats, his foster mom thinks he means no harm and could learn to peacefully coexist. Visitors are initially greeted with some barking but then he makes friends quickly. Trooper isn’t as Velcro as some Springers, but he does like to be around people. He’s not a lap dog (which is probably a good thing since he’s a larger Springer).

Trooper does have his quirks. He has a lot to say and will bark to make his wishes known. He will also keep you laughing when he has long discussions with his toys. His foster family moved the water bowl outside because he carries the bowl in his mouth, trailing water as he walks. His mouth and chin are always wet.

Won’t you consider sharing your home and your love with Mr. Tall, Dark and Handsome? He might just be your perfect match.

Louie, short for Spaniel Day Lewis, is a fun, affectionate guy who likes to stick right by his favorite person. He has lots of Springer energy and loves his walks, playing fetch, rides in the car and trips to the dog park. He is a happy boy and dances around when he gets excited. If he feels ignored, he’ll use his “sad eyes” to melt your heart and get some extra attention.

Louie is housetrained and trustworthy home alone, though he might sneak up in the human bed for a nap. He is a great cuddler and very loyal. He knows the commands “Sit,” “Stay,” “Down” (when he jumps to enthusiastically greet new people), “Off” (when he is on furniture), “Lay Down,” and “Go to Bed.” Louie enjoys children and is gentle with them.

Most of the time, he walks like a perfect gentleman on his leash. But if he sees another dog, he gets so excited that he will pull and bark and sometimes jump. He can sometimes make dogs and their owners nervous, but there’s absolutely no aggression, just excitement. Once he meets another dog face to face, Louie immediately starts licking the other dog's face and puts everyone at ease. He is also cat friendly, greeting the outdoor cat next door with kisses.

His ideal Forever Home could include adults, children and other pets. He does need a Forever Family committed to spending time with him and taking him on walks and outings. Louie’s main wish is for his people to always be at his side.

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

Hello, my name is Hannah. I am a liver and white English Springer Spaniel who is spayed and up-to-date on all vaccinations and I have a clean bill of health! Woo Hoo!

My foster mom thinks I am a very smart girl as I have mastered the doggie door, I know how to sit, I can give doggie arm hugs and I love to give kisses. One of my favorite things to do is go on long walks with my foster mom and her adopted boy Champ (who happens to be like me... an English Springer Spaniel). He and I get along great.

When I first meet someone or another doggie I might seem a little cold, but give me a chance and I will warm up eventually (I’m just assessing the situation).

When my foster mom goes out, I like hanging out in the house with my new friend Champ. I also have received a few toys that I like to chew on or drag around with me but mostly I always sleep with one favorite.

I used to be very skinny but my foster mom is feeding me twice a day and I get daily doggie treats (that I REALLY love)! I am up to 27 pounds and gaining weight each day.

Everyone in her neighborhood says I am either gorgeous, sweet, loving, a good girl or the prettiest thing ever! Just for the record, I am all of those and more. I am looking for a Forever Home where I will be loved and treasured by my Forever Family. Please feel free to sign up. I can’t wait to meet you!

Love, Hannah

Update 8/23/17: Shelby is a happy, fun loving young dog who gets along great with dogs, cats and people. She loves running around the yard, snuggling with the humans, wrestling and chasing the other dogs in her foster home and swimming in the lake. She is ready to share her love with a Forever Family.


Hi everyone, I'm Shelby and my life has gotten so much better in these last few months! I used to live in a tiny space with many other dogs, some of which were my children and relatives. Then the wonderful folks from ESRA got me out of that place and into a real home. These days, I spend most of my time inside with my foster family. There's always a warm bed, a bowl of kibble just for me and someone willing to pet me and teach me new things.

Before I got here, I didn't realize what I was missing. Everything was new and a bit scary. Car rides frightened me at first, but now I have decided they are great fun, so I hop right in and enjoy the ride. I've blossomed into a confident, happy dog and am ready for any adventure. Hiking, walking, swimming, boating -- let's do it!

Love, Shelby


Shelby's foster mom says that Shelby is one of the smartest dogs she has met. Shelby is housetrained, sweet, well-mannered and quickly learned her new name and mastered both "Leave It" and "Come."

Tennessee (who lives in Arkansas) is a sweet, gentle-natured puppy who comes with all that typical, fun puppy energy! He loves to run and play in the yard and push his tennis ball around with his nose. If he can convince some human playmates to throw it, he will leap high in the air and make some acrobatic catches. He adores squeaky toys and plays nicely with other dogs.

Inside, this young man does have an “off” switch and calms down. He is eager to please and appreciative of love and attention. He prefers to be right next to his human foster parents. Tennessee’s manners indoors are very good. He does not beg for food or treats or counter-surf, but is always ready and willing to eat. Tennessee will sit on command and walks nicely on his leash. However, his one fault is that he will dart out an open door if given the opportunity, so further practice on recall and a securely fenced yard are requirements for his Forever Home.

Tennessee is very docile and does not ever attempt to move ahead in the pack. He is great with teenagers, other dogs and cats. In fact, he is getting along well with three Springer foster siblings and a cat in foster home. His nature is very sweet and he is never pushy.

He can be a little shy at first but has been friendly with every human he’s met. We don’t think he was included in family life in his early days. Plenty of positive reinforcement with confidence building exercises would be good for him. For example, he gets visibly happy and gallops like a pony when he is praised for fetching a tennis ball and bringing it back. When he first came into rescue, he likely received the first bath of his young life and was nervous and rigid at first, but relaxed after a few minutes. Bath number two went much better.

He is looking for an active Forever Family willing to help him burn off some of that puppy energy. A securely fenced yard is a must. He’d also prefer someone home much of the time and another friendly dog for company when the humans have to go out.

Hello, my name is Madison, and my story truly began when I was dropped off at a rural Alabama shelter around June. Fast forward to June 11, I was still at the shelter sitting in a kennel under an awning out in the hot sun. Suddenly four people walked up to my kennel and I was so excited that I couldn't stop wagging my little nub of a tail. They took me inside to a room where they had a pet bed on the floor. Then someone placed a tiny week-old puppy on the pet bed and I was ecstatic. I started washing her and she apparently approved of me too because she began to nurse. Then they put five more puppies in front of me and I began washing them too.

Next thing I know I'm being whisked away to a foster home where I received a lot of attention. I had cameras all around me within a few days of arriving in foster care and all I did was what came natural -- taking care of the puppies I was given.

I did have a little surprise of my own though. On June 15, I gave birth! Yep, I was pregnant. Over the course of the next few days I gave birth six puppies -- the first born was the only male and the only to survive. Then the cameras came out again!

Wow, I was a star! The days progressed into weeks and I was very comfortable in my foster home, except it was a little scary when my foster parents had to leave me home alone. Otherwise, I was a good girl and would simply lay on the floor by my foster parents. (See the links at the top of her listing for local articles about Madison's journey)

Fast forward to 7/18/17: I was on the move again with my only surviving bundle of joy. I was put in a couple of different vehicles and after many hours on the road, I arrived at my new foster home.


From Madison's foster family: And what an arrival it was! Madison was still nursing her 4-week-old baby boy and was such a good mommy. She was very protective of her bundle with the 9-year-old female Labrador at her new foster home, but days after, they started getting on just great, and when the puppy slept, Madison and her new Lab friend would wrestle and play together.

Next Madison went into the vet for spaying and a full mastectomy on her right side. The stitches were to come out the second week of September, but Madison, along with the rest of Florida, was preparing for a hurricane and the vet's office was closed. Madison, her puppy, and her foster family piled in her foster's car and off they went to be safe. Now that things are getting back to normal, it's time for Madison to have her forever home!

Madison has an iron bladder and is fully housetrained. She needs an active Forever Family with a fenced yard, willing to continue her twice-daily walks. She is friendly and excited to meet everyone along the way. She sits on command and walks well on a lead, unless distracted by a really interesting scent. She would love another playful dog and would do well with gentle children. She's quite comfortable popping up on the sofa to cuddle or following you as you do your chores.

It's been a long amazing story and journey for Madison over the last three and a half months --from being abandoned, to a surrogate mommy, to having her own pups, to riding out a hurricane in a laundry room with her foster mom. The family that is lucky enough to adopt Madison and share her story will be forever changed by her love and her incredible journey. It is time for Madison to get that special attention that only a Forever Home and Family can give. Are you that Forever Family?

Meet Sweet Caroline. What a beauty she is! Never before has such a Springer wiggled her butt as much as Caroline does. She is an active, happy, affectionate and very obedient young girl. She knows basic commands, is housetrained, and requires no crate. Learning not to pull so much on the leash is challenging for her; however, she’s learning!

Caroline is content to sleep on her dog bed however would prefer to sleep with her humans she loves so much. When given plenty of daily exercise, she settles nicely inside the home to rest. This girl enjoys her car rides as they mean she's headed to another fun outing.

Caroline is a friend to all humans, male and female dogs and cats! She would do best with older school-aged children so they can keep up with her activity level. She enjoys hiking, romping at the beach, playing fetch and retrieving.

She is looking for a warm, active home willing to love, play, and enjoy outside activities with her. Won't you consider sharing your home with this most precious girl?

CLICK THIS LINK IF YOU WANT TO KNOW MORE ABOUT BONDED PAIRS AND THE BENEFITS OF ADOPTING THESE SPECIAL BEST FRIENDS TOGETHER.
Get on your mark..get set..GO! Introducing Buddy and Duke, two of the most adorable, sweet, active Springer pups we have seen in a while.

Both boys are gorgeous black and white bench bred Springers. Buddy has some vision loss in one eye and depends on Duke so we are offering these two as a bonded pair. The boys are only 2½ years old so they promise a lifetime of fun and adventure for their lucky adopters. They are up to date on their vaccinations, neutered and ready to go.

Watching the boys play together is quite entertaining. Buddy’s favorite activity is to chase squirrels while Duke is quite happy with a chew toy.

Buddy and Duke are both housetrained and learning basic commands. They adore going for walks. Like most young pups, Buddy’s attention span is a work in progress but coming along nicely, especially when rewarded with a treat. Both boys sleep through the night on dog beds and provide a free alarm clock for their foster mom.

A perfect home for Buddy and Duke will be one where they enjoy lots of attention, exercise and a yard in which to do so. The hardest part for their adopter(s) will be deciding which pup to give attention to first. What a fun dilemma with these two handsome boys!

Chloe Lisette's foster mom describes this nice girl as sweet, friendly and social with people and other dogs. She is a happy dog with her tail constantly in motion. We have no idea how such a great dog ended up in a shelter, but thankfully the shelter contacted ESRA and Chloe got a second chance at a happy life.

Unfortunately, Chloe did have to go through heartworm treatment, but she was a good patient -- calm and cooperative and content to rest in her crate. Now that she's feeling better, she is playing with other dogs and more active. She's gained a few needed pounds, her appetite is great and her coat is sleek and shiny. She is ready to find her Forever Home.

Envy is a lovely black and white girl who finds herself looking for a new Forever Home. She is a mellow Springer girl who is happy just to be your shadow. Envy is the embodiment of what we call a Velcro dog. Cuddling on the couch with her people is Envy's very favorite activity!

She is up to date on her vaccines, heartworm negative and like any Springer, her ears need to be cleaned regularly. Her foster mom thinks she may have been fed people food in the past but she has now adapted to yummy grain-free food that makes her coat shine!

Envy walks well on a leash, is house trained and loves to go for rides in the car. She's fine with other dogs but mostly ignore them. She is untested with cats. She is such a loving little girl! She still wants the company of her foster mom when she goes outside and we think she will be fine without a fenced yard as long as she is supervised.

Envy would do best in a Forever Home where there is not a lot of activity. She would be perfect for retirees or a family with a quieter lifestyle. She will be a wonderful walking companion, home companion and just a lovely addition to her adopter's family. One wiggle of that little tail is all you need to fall in love with Envy!

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

I AM the Mighty Quinn. You've read about me. You might have seen me on the news, but this..this is ME! My past is a little scary, but again, I am MIGHTY so here goes.

I was found in the road after being hit head on by a car. I have my own "other" page which you can click on for all the medical details. (The link is right under the heart at the top right of my listing.) The page says I'm Special Needs, but in all honesty I'm just downright special. In spite of all this medical mumbo-jumbo, I am a lover boy and I have so much life to live and so much love to give.

I'm told by many that I am a most handsome liver and white Springer with freckles on my belly and feet. Estimates of my age range from 5 to 7, though I'll never tell. Trust me: The people say I am handsome...they're not kidding.

I am ready for my Forever Home, BUT I will still need to continue my regimen of physical therapy. I'm very good at it. And the people who help me are so nice! Oh and until I am all healed, my therapy is already paid for, so that's a bonus. Lots of people cared about me, so this will cost you only your time. I need shorter walks than most dogs while I heal, but I promise I'm very good at walking on a leash.

I will need to be on supplements for the rest of my life (Dasuquin, herbal joint supplements) and maybe an occasional pain pill as I age (to perfection I should add). If you want a dog who will love and adore you, who wants to be your best friend, and you have the time and the love to help me get all the way better, then this could be the start of something big.

Call. Let's meet. Soon. Real soon.
Love,
Quinn

ESRA#:2017-232GA
Status: Adopted
Date:2017-11-15
  
Age:10 years
Gender:Female
Color:Liver & White
Weight:45 lbs
Variety:Bench
Introducing Layla, a gentle soul who would make a wonderful companion for the right family. Her foster mom describes this lovely senior lady as quiet, loving, sweet and laid back. She doesn't act like a senior and still has plenty of spunk. She is active and curious and has no trouble hopping up into her foster mom's truck and heading out for adventure. She had a great time on a recent camping trip and loved hiking, exploring and sniffing all the interesting scents.

Even though Layla has bounced around a bit, she makes friends easily. She approaches visitors with a wagging tail and then sits down and waits for some petting. She gets along fine with other dogs and people of all ages. In her Forever Home, she will need a doggie door or someone home much of the day and willing to take her out for potty breaks. Layla knows her basic commands and walks nicely on her leash. This smart dog has done a little bit of countersurfing and has figured out how to open kitchen drawers and look for snacks.

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

ESRA#:2017-247AL
Status: Adopted

Age:5 years
Gender:Male
Color:L&W Tricolor
Weight:52 lbs
Variety:Bench
Meet Nash, a happy, active and extraordinarily handsome tri-colored Springer boy in search of his Forever Family. Nash is always up for a walk, run or romp in the yard. He is friendly to all people, housetrained and knows some basic commands.

Nash does have one issue -- he is food aggressive. He gets overly excited at mealtime and will protect and defend his food. His foster dad has been hand-feeding Nash and has seen some improvement in this behavior, but ongoing training may be necessary. If Nash is the only dog in his Forever Home, he simply needs to be left alone and undisturbed while eating his kibble.

Nash is a sensitive fellow who wants to please. He is a good watchdog but has been happy to meet and greet neighbors and visitors to his foster home. He would rather not be crated but behaves well when left home alone uncrated.

His ideal family would be an active one. He has lots of energy and enthusiasm and would make a great partner for daily runs or long walks. A fenced yard would be a plus. Because of his food guarding issues, he needs to be in a household without small children. Nash does well with other dogs after a proper introduction and seemed to ignore a cat that wandered into his yard. While we think he'd do best as an only dog, he would also do fine with another friendly dog and dog-savvy parents.

Please consider sharing your life and home with this fun-loving boy!
