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.

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

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!

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

Age:11 years

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, up to date on all shots and has no medical issues. 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.

A good girl for the vet!

Age:8 months
Gender:Female

Weight:17 lbs
Variety:Mix
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!

Age:5 years

Weight:40 lbs
Variety:Bench
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

Jaeger had quite start in this world. He and his siblings were found in the woods and Jaeger was lucky enough to find a loving home. Unfortunately, one of the family members developed allergies and Jaeger had to go. Lucky for him, ESRA came to his rescue. We do think a little bit of hound might be in his DNA, but what a handsome addition that turned out to be!

Jaeger’s foster Mom has done nothing but sing this boy’s praises. It’s no wonder. He is housetrained, uses the doggie door, plays with the resident Springer and is fine with the cat. He originally lived in a house with children so he’s got it all.

Jaeger can initially be timid with new people but quickly comes around. He comes when called, sits and enters his crate on request. He is a little thin and is a bit food motivated right now. He may need a little reinforcement in the begging area. What Springer doesn’t?
He is up to date on his shots, heartworm negative and is a healthy, playful 3-year-old pup.

Jaeger is a sweet tempered, Velcro dog who will be a perfect fit for the right Forever Family. He's hoping that family includes children. This boy loves little ones! He was visibly overjoyed meeting children in his neighborhood! Jaeger wants nothing more than to have a family with his own kids to play with. If you're looking for the perfect family dog, he's the one for you.

Wren is a sweet little package of dynamite. This gal loves to run full speed after tennis balls until you make her stop. She’s very affectionate and happens to fit nicely on your lap, weighing in at just 30 pounds, including her full tail.

Wren is eager to please and smart as a whip. She would love to find a very active home, with room to zoom after tennis balls in a fenced yard, and someone willing to throw them daily...not just once or twice, but many times to really exercise her.

She co-exists just fine with other dogs or cats, but really isn’t interested in engaging with them. She’s driven to please her people and pursue her favorite pleasure - tennis balls!

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

Rosey’s foster mom describes her as soft, gentle, calm and sweet as can be. This pretty girl is shy at first when meeting new people but she quickly warms up and is delighted to stay by your side or snuggle with you on the couch. Rosey loves car rides, leash walks and wags and wags her little wiggle-butt when she is happy, which happens a lot.

Rosey is fine with the resident dogs in her foster Mom’s house but does not really interact or engage in play. We think Rosey would be very happy to be queen of her castle and keep her human to herself.

Rosey is housetrained, comes when called and sits but needs someone who can continue to work with her using positive training methods. Further training will help Rosey build her confidence and become more outgoing.

As you can see in her pictures, Rosey is a beautiful black and white Springer with big, brown, soulful eyes. Rosey would like a home on the quiet side, perhaps with an adopter who is home most of the time. She is just an adorable girl that will blossom with lots of love and nurturing in her Forever Home.

Those pretty brown eyes will reflect all the love Rosey has for her new adopter. Cuddles and snuggles are all she asks for in return!

Sometimes life's most cherished gifts come to us in the smallest of packages. At just 26 pounds, Pippin is a delightful little package.
She is a very dainty little girl and even plays with toys like a little dainty lady. She has been consistently happy in her foster home since the minute she arrived! Her beautiful tail wags like a plume.

Her foster mom finds Pippin to be the perfect houseguest. She is crate trained, house trained, heartworm negative and on preventative, spayed and completely healthy.

Pippin enjoys playing with the resident dogs at her foster home and even tries to initiate play with the cats, but would also be happy as an only dog. Her sole request is that she have someone to cuddle.

THINKING ABOUT BRINGING A SENIOR SPRINGER INTO YOUR FAMILY? Read why rescuing Senior Springers is a top priority for ESRA.
Dakota, lovingly known as Kota, is a very sweet, healthy, and docile senior. She is affectionate, warm and wants her tummy, ears, and chest rubbed every day. She loves to ride in the car, go to the park and mingle with people. Kota would be fine in a home with other dogs and cats. She knows basic commands such as "Sit," "Stay," "Come," and "Roll Over" (with assistance). She walks slowly and nicely on a leash.

Kota would do well with school-aged and older children. She doesn’t mind being left in a secure, comfortable soft area for a short time while her family runs a few errands. Kota is a good sleeper, appreciates a daily routine, and enjoys eating. In fact, she will let you know using nice manners that it is time to eat!

Kota is a typically warm and happy senior Springer. She is low maintenance and an easygoing girl. Won’t you consider offering her some love and comfort for the rest of her golden years?

Meet Stan THE Man! Stan is 51 pounds of pure joy!

Stan comes to us as a stray, so we don’t know his background but we sure are enjoying getting to know just who Stan is. At one year old, Stan is such an incredibly good boy! He self-entertains beautifully with a toy and then gently lays the toy in his foster mom’s lap so she can toss it for him. He interacts great with the other dogs in his foster home as well as the two cats. We don’t believe Stan has ever met anyone he didn’t absolutely love.

Stan is housetrained, crate trained and knows Sit and Come. He is a bit energetic while walking on a leash but with time and training, that will work itself out. He is an incredibly happy, healthy boy. As with any young Springer, he is fully of energy and zest for life. Stan would thrive best with a fenced yard.

Stan loves life and life loves Stan! Stan gives his foster mom the cutest “Woo Woo” at mealtimes. He is such an incredibly easy boy to live with.

This sweet boy loves to learn and is so very eager to please. We would recommend formal obedience training for Stan and you will be amazed at just how smart Stan is.

And that face – doesn’t it just need to be covered in kisses? Who is interested in bringing some precious joy into their home and heart?

Sweet Springer girl Percy’s favorite things in the world are attention, cuddles and tummy rubs from her humans. She is the textbook definition of a Velcro dog. Percy is looking for a Forever Family in need of a constant companion and best friend.

Percy is a well-mannered, well-behaved pup. In fact, Percy’s experienced foster family says she is one of the best behaved foster dogs they’ve ever had. She knows her basic commands and is completely housetrained and trustworthy home alone. She tolerates crating but rarely needs to be crated. She does get very excited when her foster mom returns home. Initially she jumped, barked and raced around, but she has quickly learned that keeping all four paws on the floor wins praise and attention.

Most of the time, she is a quiet dog. Percy will bark when someone comes to the door, but settles quickly and gives visitors a friendly greeting. Once in a while, she will talk when she gets excited or wants her dinner. She enjoys car rides and is a well-behaved passenger who would be happy to accompany her adopters on errands or trips.

Ideally, Percy would like to be an only dog and the center of attention. She is quick to growl at new, rowdy dogs but then settles down and gets along. She is friendly with two other dogs in her foster home and does well around cats. However, after a proper introduction, she would likely be fine with another laid-back dog who doesn’t mind sharing his or her humans. A family with all adults or adults and teenagers would be ideal; she has not spent time around small children.

Read about bonded pairs and the benefits of adopting these special best friends.
Introducing our father and daughter bonded pair, Hampton and Deemer. They have always been together and need to be adopted as a bonded pair. Hampton is a gorgeous tri-colored boy. Though he is a young 11, he’s a lot calmer than his daughter Deemer. He still watches over Deemer and shares his toys with her.

Hampton will not share them happily with other dogs. He can be picky with other dogs but for the most part gets along well with the resident dogs in his foster home.

Though his hearing is decreasing with age, like most Springers, a loud clap or a bark from another dog will get his attention. Hampton is on Dasuquin (joint supplement) to help with his mobility but can still jump on the couch. He is otherwise a very healthy and handsome gentleman. Turning heads is a family trait and this handsome boy will certainly do just that.

Deemer is in perpetual motion and always ready to be a typical Springer goofball. She is a little pushy and wants to be the first out of the door and could use a training class to remind her of her manners. She does come when called by her name, which is the most important command of all.

After close observation in her foster home, it has been revealed that Deemer lives to hunt lizards. Inside she sheds her huntress ways and is sweet, gets along with other dogs and children. She enjoys rallying the troops (other dogs in the home) and enticing them to play. This young lady is a true beauty and will turn heads wherever you go.

Please consider adopting Deemer and her wonderful dad, Hampton, and double your fun!

SPECIAL NOTE: The Springers For Seniors designation that is included for Hampton and Deemer applies to Hampton alone. Please contact this bonded pair’s coordinator for specifics about this special program for seniors.

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