Hello, Jack here. I will be 6 months old next week. I'm very smart and really do want to please my people; agility would be great for me as I love to listen and learn and run! I am also a "snuggle Springer."

Of course I'm still a puppy so I do have to be watched as my inquisitiveness means I just have to explore everything! I am crate trained (keeps me out of trouble) and I sleep in my crate at night. I am also housetrained and neutered. I'm told all these are good, so of course, this makes me happy. I do like toys and love my puppy food.

I haven't met a person I don't like. In a previous foster home I lived with two children and two smaller animals called cats. The cats scared me! I am always happy, thunder and other noises don't seem to bother me. I would need a fenced yard to be able to run and play. I chase a Frisbee and have no problem relinquishing so I can run some more to chase again. I am such a good boy and love a gentle hand to hug me! I know I will be a great life-long companion for one lucky family.

Love to all, Jack

PS: The reference below is from my foster mom and dad


Jack has a big personality -- like any puppy. He would love an adopter who would include him to enjoy outdoor activities, such as biking, running, walking or just lots and lots of playing. He is a sweet boy and of course, gets excited meeting new people. After a few minutes of cuddling and puppy loving, he will lie down next to you. He doesn't beg at the dinner table but lies quietly.

He enjoys chasing butterflies and lizards and running around the yard. Jack understands the words "No, " "Stay," "Sit" and "Down." Because is so young the simple commands need to be reinforced.

As with all our Springer puppies, we do require his new adopter to enroll him in a puppy training class. This is where he will learn structure, basic commands and socialization skills.

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

Age:12 years
Gender:Male
Color:Black & White
Weight:57 lbs
Variety:Bench
My name is Monny and I was the biggest puppy in a litter of eight. My foster mom says I am a “gentle giant.” My Vet said that I am the perfect size for my stature at 57 pounds. I'm not sure what that means, but everyone I’ve met tells me how good looking I am. They say I am a lovable, playful and energetic 12-year-old Springer boy. I show no signs of graying -- must be good genes. I do like to play with my foster brother who is a little dude and is quick for a 12-year-old dog too. Tag is his favorite game.

I sure love to retrieve a tennis ball when my foster dad throws it for me! I am good on walks and drives and am always ready to do either! I haven’t met a stranger yet (human or canine). I am fine with little people too. I wouldn't want to be tugged by them; otherwise I am happy to just watch them play around me.

I can be left alone with the run of the house and don’t get into any trouble. I would really like to get on the furniture or the bed every once in a while because I do like to cuddle with my people, but I understand if you ask me to get down since I am such a big boy. I will give you those pitiful eyes and keep asking with my special cooing voice I use when I want something. I have been told that I sound like a cooing dove. I like that! I can sit and shake (with either hand you ask for) and I will wait politely if someone comes to the door, if asked to, before I greet someone. I have done well with the pet door and big back yard at my foster home but when we go to the beach house (no pet door), I do fine and will let you know when I need to go out to potty.

My foster parents say I am a really sweet dog. I have enjoyed them being home most of the time and have even enjoyed living with another dog. But I am so adaptable that I would be fine with most anybody that would love me and take good care of me. I don’t know if I have ever met a cat but I would probably like them too; I love everybody!

A special note regarding Jean and all of ESRA’s seniors:

Why adopt an older dog?

Most people go to a shelter or rescue organization wanting to adopt a puppy or a young dog. By adopting an older dog, you can make a statement about human compassion and the value of life at all ages. Older dogs are often the last to be adopted or the first to be euthanized at the shelter. Why should an older dog be left behind?

Dogs live in the present, as today is what's important to them. They don't tend to worry about what's around the next bend in the road. They just want to be happy and loved today! We all know there are no guarantees in life. The quality of time you have with your new companion can matter a great deal more than quantity. Even if you have a senior dog for only a few years, the days you spend together will be precious!

You can give an older dog the best years of his/her life! Won't you please consider providing a loving home to a senior?

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

UPDATE 6/21: Queenie's puppies are ready for their Forever Homes. They are housetrained, crate trained, leash trained and even have a head start on basic obedience and agility!

Looking for a loving companion to spice up your life for years to come? Look no further than our darling spice-inspired litter of eight little Springer mix puppies.

Mama Queenie was rescued in early April in Louisiana, and quickly transported to an experienced Florida foster home just a few days before the puppies arrived. These fast-growing little pups are almost five weeks old (born April 13) and will be available for adoption in mid-June. It appears that the father may have been a Labrador Retriever.

The litter of eight pups includes four boys and four girls. Ginger and Annatto are the cream-colored females. Sage and Cayenne are the black females. Meric and Saffron are the cream-colored males while Licorice and Basil are the males with black coats.

After they are adopted out, Queenie will undergo heartworm treatment. She will be available later this summer after she receives a clean bill of health.

Important notes about puppies:

We do not place puppies as presents or surprises. The entire prospective adopting family needs to meet their potential puppy. Also, please remember that puppies require a lot of care, attention, and training, and they do chew on things. The decision to get a puppy and raise it to be a healthy, happy, and well-adjusted dog is a serious commitment.

Because these puppies are so young, they will be placed on a spay/neuter contract. This means that in addition to the regular adoption fee, a monetary deposit will be required, and it will be refundable when proof of spay or neuter is supplied to ESRA.

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

Meet Amazing Grace! Her name says it all. With a disposition of sweetness, kindness, gentleness and love, she is pretty much a perfect dog.

Gracie was surrendered by her owners to a shelter, due to a major life change and the owners’ hectic travel schedule and inability to take proper care of her. When we picked Gracie up at the shelter, she was very frightened and scared. Any sudden movements would cause her to flinch and we could tell she had a rough time. But after a gentle and gradual introduction to her foster family's two older dogs, Gracie quickly adjusted.

Gracie is 11 years old and although she’s a senior, she is active for her age and enjoys going for walks in the neighborhood and chasing after tennis balls. She is fully housetrained and up to date on all shots. Gracie is in wonderful shape for her age, she does require a small dose of estrogen three times a week, She looks thin for her size but has a healthy appetite and we believe she will be at an appropriate weight in no time! She comes when called and will sit when asked, although she seems to have some loss of hearing. We haven’t discovered any bad habits and she has been very obedient and learned the flow of the household and where her place is very quickly.

We’ve never heard Gracie bark. She seems like a quiet soul who expresses herself with her beautiful big brown eyes. She has so much sweetness in her tiny body and loves to give kisses if you let her. She enjoys belly rubs and loves getting attention and does well riding in the car.

Having Gracie as a companion would make some individual a very lucky person. She has a lot of love left to give. If you want a loving, sweet, and gentle dog who enjoys being around people and seems truly thankful, then Gracie is the perfect dog for you.

When describing me, my foster mom tells everyone that I am sweet, endearing, a gentle soul and a joy to have in the house. Then, she brags about how beautiful I am with my shiny black coat and adorable face. As you can see, I am mixed with another lovely breed. Pretty sure it’s Border collie and what could be more stunning than a Springer/Border collie mix? Just take a look at my pictures.

My foster family calls me Dainty Dizzy because I am so gentle and sweet. I just love my 11-year-old resident doggie brother and the resident kitty. The best part is, they all like me. When it comes to humans, I instantly love them all.
My favorite game is to play with the water stream coming out of the hose. I ventured into the pool once but wasn’t that crazy about it. Being part Border Collie, I was more interested in herding all the noodles together.

I do like to play in the yard but when I come in, I am mellow and well behaved. My foster mom says I am a very easy girl. I am housetrained and go to the door to signal when I need to go out. I’ll bet if my new adopters hang a bell on the door, I would learn to use it in no time. I know basic commands and walk well on the leash after my initial excitement passes. I could probably use a walking harness or even a bit of group training. Since I love other dogs, that would be really fun for me!

It would be fun to have a doggie pal in my forever home but I would be just as happy to be queen of the castle and get all the attention. I would also like a nice fenced in yard to play in. In fact, my foster mom says a secure fence is a requirement for me or I might go looking for some sheep to herd.

Even though I am happy in my foster home, I can’t wait for a Forever Home. I know my Forever Home can’t wait for a special girl like me!

Since Hemi and Diesel (also available for adoption) are litter mates, there are a lot of similarities between the two. Like Diesel, Hemi has a wonderful temperament and also like Diesel, he is a real looker with adorable freckles all over his face.

Hemi is thriving in foster care and seems quite thrilled to be on his own with his new friends, both two-legged and four-legged. He plays beautifully with the resident terrier mix so Forever Home with another playful dog would be wonderful.

Hemi loves walks, riding in the car and playing, playing, playing. He loves it when his foster parents play fetch with him and he always brings the toy back for more. He has been in the swimming pool and thought it was just great. He would love one in his new home or he would quite enjoy splashing around in a plastic kiddie pool. Since he is a fan of water, he would be thrilled to take a trip to a dog beach with his new family. Like his brother, hunting lizards is a passion. Since he loves to run and play, we recommend Hemi’s Forever Home have a fenced yard.

Hemi knows "Sit" and "Stay" and is working on "Off." He walks well on a leash once he’s settled down from the excitement of heading out. He would do well with a harness. He is housetrained and tells his people when he has to go out. He’s not tested with children or cats but might be a bit too active for small children.

We highly recommend enrolling Hemi in a puppy training class. A 2-year-old Springer is very much still a puppy.

Hemi is crate trained, up to date with his vaccinations and ready to go to his Forever Home. Hemi is a wonderful Springer and will be a great companion and family member for his lucky adopter!

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

Young Scout had a very rough start in life, due to a former owner who was using an electric shock collar to get a small puppy’s attention! Many mistakes were made at a crucial, formative time in this puppy’s development, so she needs a do-over with a gentle, dog savvy owner dedicated to formal training that exclusively uses positive reinforcement methods and plenty of practice at home.

Scout is an active 1-year-old Springer who needs a fenced yard where she can run and play. She jumps on people to greet them, so a household without young children would be best. She would do well with a doggie companion because she enjoys active play with other active dogs.

She is housetrained but that’s the extent of her prior training. After some initial protest, she will sleep through the night in her crate. A clear command and a tasty treat are in order at bedtime. She was reportedly a good girl during her first-ever grooming in foster care and is good at the veterinarian’s office. Scout is spayed and healthy and ready for a fresh start.

Pearl is a gem! She is the typical active field Springer outside and a calm and well-behaved companion inside. Pearl loves her walks and loves offleash runs in a safe environment. She does pull at first out of excitement and prefers to keep a faster pace. With a little additional leash training, she might make an ideal jogging companion for an active adopter.

Inside, Pearl is a great companion who will quietly follow you throughout the day. She is very affectionate, but seems to ask permission for any activity. She does not recognize her new name quite yet, but knows “Sit” and is learning new tasks. Pearl is completely housetrained and trustworthy when home alone. She politely greets everyone on walks or visitors to her foster house. She does not jump up on visitors and enjoys the company of other dogs.

Her ideal Forever Home would come with a fenced yard to explore and some humans looking for a jewel of a companion. We have not tested her with toddlers or cats.

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

Hello everyone, my name is Hanna. I will describe myself later but first I must tell you my amazing story. I came from a large family home. I was one of three dogs and with a number of children. The parents had too much to bare and not enough time to adequately take care of me. So, they had enough of a kind heart to let English Springer Rescue take me so I could get the care I needed.

I had a significant amount of skin infection but since I have been living with my foster mom and her adopted English Springer boy, I am feeling so much better. My skin is all better; I’m just waiting for the rest of my hair to grow in. I’m up to date on all my vaccinations. If I do say so myself, I think I am the cutest liver and white field Spaniel in the household.

My foster mom says all the time what a smart girl I am. I have mastered good social skills when we go for runs or walks in the neighborhood. I also learned the dog door in just three days.

I love humans and I am friendly with other dogs as well. I may seem skittish at first with other dogs but it just takes me a minute to introduce myself. I do like attention from adults as well as children or teenagers. I have some energy because I love to run circles back and forth between the backyard trees. My weaknesses are belly rubs, brushing my back, hugs and lots of kisses.

I got a second chance so I am looking for someone to love me as much as I love them. If you are looking for a fun, good looking, energetic and sweet girl, well I am your match.


Love, Hanna

What a pretty, happy dog Callie is! She is a lovely, petite, liver and white girl whose favorite activity is playing with toys, toys and more toys. Callie will fetch a ball and bring it back to her foster mom. She knows most basic commands such as "Sit," "Wait," "Stop" and she walks well on a leash. She is also housetrained.

Cali is a Velcro dog. She is a sweet girl that loves to ride in the car and thinks everyone she meets is her new best friend. She is untested with kids and ignores the resident cats. She is great with other dogs and greeted all the incoming dogs at the gate when she visited the dog park. Cali would love another dog to play with and keep her company in her Forever Home.

When Callie came into rescue, she’d had a urinary tract infection for over a year; as a result, she underwent surgery. The surgery was successful and she now has a clean bill of health.

Callie will definitely need a fenced yard and will have to be kept inside when left alone, as do all of our rescue dogs. Callie will fit in perfectly with an adopter who is retired, or works from home.

Callie has been through a lot of changes recently and is waiting (not so patiently she says) for the right Forever Home. This wonderful girl is going to make someone very happy and provide unconditional love and a sweet disposition for her lucky adopter!

A good Samaritan found Riley running amuck and turned him into an Alabama shelter. Even though it is pretty obvious that either Mom or Dad was a hound dog, he’s now an honorary ESRA Springer!

Riley’s foster mom reports he is great with her two rescued Springers. Even though the resident female is taking her time accepting him, his puppy charm is winning her over. Riley is very sweet, happy and all puppy. As with all our puppies, we will ask Riley’s adopter to enroll him in a basic puppy training class. As playful and exuberant as he is, all puppies need some structure and manners.

Playing is, of course, Riley’s favorite pastime. He loves all toys and when his idea of a toy is not the same as his foster mom's idea of a toy, he listens and minds when told no. Like any Springer puppy, Riley will require lots of exercise and stimulation. He’s probably do best with a fenced yard so he can run and play to his heart’s content. He would do just fine with another friendly dog in the household. He has not been around children or cats but his foster mom thinks he might be great with kids. An active family could be the perfect fit.

Riley is neutered, up to date on all his inoculations and healthy as can be. He is currently on puppy food since the vet feels he can put on a few more pounds.

Riley is looking for a Forever Home that will give him all the love and attention he needs. Riley is a special boy and we know there is an adopter out there who is just as special!

Looking for a loving companion to spice up your life for years to come? Look no further than our darling spice-inspired litter of eight little Springer mix puppies.

Mama Queenie was rescued in early April in Louisiana, and quickly transported to an experienced Florida foster home just a few days before the puppies arrived. These fast-growing little pups are almost five weeks old (born April 13) and will be available for adoption in mid-June. It appears that the father may have been a Labrador Retriever.

The litter of eight pups includes four boys and four girls. Ginger and Annatto are the cream-colored females. Sage and Cayenne are the black females. Meric and Saffron are the cream-colored males while Licorice and Basil are the males with black coats.

After they are adopted out, Queenie will undergo heartworm treatment. She will be available later this summer after she receives a clean bill of health.

Important notes about puppies:

We do not place puppies as presents or surprises. The entire prospective adopting family needs to meet their potential puppy. Also, please remember that puppies require a lot of care, attention, and training, and they do chew on things. The decision to get a puppy and raise it to be a healthy, happy, and well-adjusted dog is a serious commitment.

Because these puppies are so young, they will be placed on a spay/neuter contract. This means that in addition to the regular adoption fee, a monetary deposit will be required, and it will be refundable when proof of spay or neuter is supplied to ESRA.

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

Diesel came to ESRA with his brother Hemi when their owner could no longer care for them. Although they are handsome bookends, both boys are thriving in their separate foster homes.

Diesel’s foster mom reports that he is a real lover boy. He adores being with humans and is very happy to meet other dogs on his walks. He has not been around children or cats in his foster home. Based on the way he interacts with adults, we think he will do well with older kids but might accidentally knock little ones down. She also describes him as a goofball – very entertaining when he drops to the floor, rolls around and waits for his belly rub.

Diesel is up to date on his vaccines and a very healthy boy. He knows the commands "Sit" and "No" and responds immediately when he hears his name. He doesn’t countersurf and doesn’t beg for human food. Of course, being a Springer, he will check out what his foster mom is eating but then just walks away. Now that’s a good Springer! He also doesn’t jump on the furniture unless invited.

He is doing pretty well with his leash walking but needs more work. He could probably benefit from the use of a harness. While on his walks, his nose sometimes leads the way. Lizards and squirrels are quite interesting to him but the feeling is not mutual! As with all our young dogs (a 2-year-old Springer is still very much a puppy), we highly recommend they be enrolled in puppy classes.

Diesel loves water and loves to run. That’s the required formula for dock diving! He might be great at agility. Because of his fabulous temperament, he would be an excellent therapy dog.

Diesel would enjoy a fenced yard but also loves his daily walks. He will thrive in a Forever Home where he can play to his heart's content and might also enjoy having a doggie sibling. Because Diesel loves people, his number one requirement is that he is loved back in kind. He is a fabulous dog and if you are his adopter, you will think you won the lottery!

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

Mama Queenie, just before the pups were born

ESRA#:2018-167FL
Status: Adopted

Age:4 months
Gender:Female
Color:Unique coat
Weight:5 lbs
Variety:Mix
Looking for a loving companion to spice up your life for years to come? Look no further than our darling spice-inspired litter of eight little Springer mix puppies.

Mama Queenie was rescued in early April in Louisiana, and quickly transported to an experienced Florida foster home just a few days before the puppies arrived. These fast-growing little pups are almost five weeks old (born April 13) and will be available for adoption in mid-June. It appears that the father may have been a Labrador Retriever.

The litter of eight pups includes four boys and four girls. Ginger and Annatto are the cream-colored females. Sage and Cayenne are the black females. Meric and Saffron are the cream-colored males while Licorice and Basil are the males with black coats.

After they are adopted out, Queenie will undergo heartworm treatment. She will be available later this summer after she receives a clean bill of health.

Important notes about puppies:

We do not place puppies as presents or surprises. The entire prospective adopting family needs to meet their potential puppy. Also, please remember that puppies require a lot of care, attention, and training, and they do chew on things. The decision to get a puppy and raise it to be a healthy, happy, and well-adjusted dog is a serious commitment.

Because these puppies are so young, they will be placed on a spay/neuter contract. This means that in addition to the regular adoption fee, a monetary deposit will be required, and it will be refundable when proof of spay or neuter is supplied to ESRA.

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

CLICK THIS LINK IF YOU WANT TO KNOW MORE ABOUT BONDED PAIRS AND THE BENEFITS OF ADOPTING THESE SPECIAL BEST FRIENDS TOGETHER.
Kaya came into rescue with her best pal Boomer. Kaya and Boomer are a bonded pair since they have always lived together and are inseparable.

Kaya loves to be outside in her foster family’s yard and is determined to rid the world of lizards. She is making some progress but since she is in Florida, she still has a long way to go. She also loves to spend hours playing with Boomer. Kaya is an active 6-year-old with lots of Springer energy. Once inside, she is happy to relax and cuddle. Her foster mom reports that she is a happy, sweet girl.

Kaya is spayed and is up to date on her all her vaccinations. She has received a clean bill of health (she could stand to lose a few pounds to keep her girlish figure) but is otherwise ready to go to her new home.

Boomer is Kaya’s best friend and playmate. Boomer’s favorite activity in the world is having his tummy rubbed by his humans. As with Kaya, he is housetrained and also up to date with his vaccinations. He’s a healthy, loving boy.

Neither Kaya nor Boomer has been around cats or children, but so far they have been wonderful with everyone they meet.

Why have just one Springer when you can have two? Kaya and Boomer offer double the pleasure and double the love and affection. All they need now is a loving Forever Home!

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

From what I hear, I’m pretty much a perfect Springer boy. I love to run and play but when I am finally tuckered out I love to climb on my foster Dad’s lap and cuddle. No doubt, you have noticed that I am a head turner. My gorgeous, shiny, black and white coat only adds to my good looks. My big brown eyes are like reflective pools...OK, maybe I am going too far with that one.

I love every human I meet and every dog is my new best friend. My foster family thinks it is awfully cute that I even love to give kisses to the resident cat. I’m the whole package!

Here is where I get serious. I was hit by a car and my leg was broken. It was not attended to until a wonderful lady brought me to her Vet. They tried really hard but could not save my leg. They call me a tripod now but it certainly does not stop me from doing what other dogs do. Playing ball is one of my favorite activities and I will bring the ball right back to you. Of course that means I want you to throw it again! I am a good boy for the vet and the groomer; I am crate trained and learning basic commands. Not pulling on the leash is one of newest challenges but we are working on that.

I will need a fenced yard to keep me safe but also to run and play to my heart’s content. My perfect Forever Home would probably be one with kids to play with or active adopters who will include me in their outdoor adventures. I might like dock diving and would probably make a great therapy dog. My possibilities are endless.

I know my Forever Home is out there and I can’t wait to meet you. I promise to be the best boy and I know we will love each other forever!

Love, Noah

Oh my goodness, look at this face! This is Finn. He is happy, active, goofy, and very affectionate. Finn lives and gets along well with other dogs; however he really likes his people the most. Finn will do well living with other dogs. His requirements for a home are quite simple: just give him plenty of attention and daily exercise. He will follow you around the house, lie under your feet, and even watch TV with you -- in your lap if invited.

One of Finn’s biggest thrills is to play ball! Oh yes. He loves those green fuzzy tennis balls and would love to have his house decorated in them. In foster care, his family has learned how to politely manage Finn and his desire to have a tennis ball close by. He is the best retriever on land and on sea. He loves to run off leash on the beach as well as inside dog parks.

Finn is great with all age children. Finn has a very low prey drive so no need to worry about the bird population decreasing! He is housetrained, will use a crate if needed, and knows all basic commands. Finn exhibits excellent manners at the dinner table. He is fine with cats. He walks well on a leash. He rides very well in a car and is quite happy to go anywhere you are.

Do consider this most precious gentle boy for your home. Finn will in turn warm your heart as he really has the biggest one of them all.

Weight:37 lbs
Variety:Mix
Rudy is a sweet young Springer/Cocker Spaniel mix with tons of energy and a free spirit. He is athletic and loves to run and chase his ball and play with other friendly, active dogs. He came into rescue because his puppy-like high energy level was too much for his elderly owners. He is in need of an active Forever Family with a fenced yard where he can safely expend some of his energy.

Rudy knows some basic commands and stays in his crate when no one is home. With his nice leash manners, he would make a great companion for jogging, long walks or hikes. He will bring you a ball when he thinks it is time to play.

Rudy does bark and jump in excitement, so he might do best with older children or adults; little ones might be scared of the barking or accidentally knocked down. He is friendly with everyone and calms down nicely after greeting new people. He would benefit from some further obedience training. He has been known to countersurf and use his voice to make his demands/requests known.

Rudy suffers from Cherry Eye, a common and easily correctable eye condition that will be surgically repaired before his adoption. He is headed to the veterinary ophthalmologist and we expect a full recovery.

Human companionship is at the top of Rudy’s wishlist. He has a great personality and just wants to be next to his people. If you want an energetic companion dog, Rudy may just be the one for you!

A good girl for the vet!

Have you ever seen a puppy more adorable than Isla? Chances are, you will say no. This little girl appears to have bit of terrier in her mix, which you can see in that cute face. She is irresistible!

Isla visited the vet last week and received her first round of puppy shots. Her foster parents and the vet agree that she is one sweet, loving pup. It has been reported that snuggling and cuddling are two of her favorite pastimes! She is great with the resident Springers at her foster home and even the kitty cat. She is a smart little girl too. Isla learned to use the doggie door at her foster home within 24 hours and already uses it to go out and go potty.

Her Forever Home will need to continue to reinforce her training as she is still a puppy. As with any pup, she has a lot of energy and will need an active family. Her foster mom reports she hops and leaps through the house and even climbed up one level of the cat tower. We think she would be a good candidate for agility, dock diving or any other canine sports. As with all our rescued puppies, we require Isla’s adopter enroll her in puppy training classes. This will ensure she is socialized, learns basic commands and is a well mannered addition to her new family.

Isla sleeps in her crate; she makes a little noise at first but settles down in a few minutes. She is also crated when her foster parents are out of the house to keep her from typical puppy mischief.

Isla is such a good girl. Her Forever Home will have so much fun with this active pup as she blossoms into a lovely young lady!

Hello, I’m Skipper. If I do say so myself I am a gorgeous, liver tri-colored Springer. At only 5 years old I am a lively, playful, boy. I certainly need fattening up and I love those extra rations I am receiving. I love to ride in the car and I love to meet other four-legged friends...of the canine species, of course. I have not been around children yet, nor have I been tested with cats.

I know basic commands like Sit and Stay and I am a very good boy on a leash. I am a pleasure to walk and no doubt will turn heads when out and about at my new Forever Home. Nothing I can do about my good looks. I just bask in the glory. Sigh.

I love tennis balls and will play fetch all day if you are up to it. Of course, when it is time to stop, I love to be inside with my foster parents. I am not a clingy or needy boy and I am very happy to curl up in my bed and take a little nap. I can still get a bit scared when something unfamiliar comes along but I am learning to enjoy new things.

I am up to date on my vaccines and a healthy guy, other than needing to put on a few pounds. As I wrote before, like any Springer, I am enjoying my foster family’s efforts to do so very much.

I would be happy in a Forever Home with other dogs or as the king of my castle. Everyone tells me what a good boy I am. I just can’t wait for a home of my own and to meet my new family!

Love, Skipper
