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?

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

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?

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

Age:8 years
Gender:Female

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.

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

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.

Age:12 years
Gender:Male
Color:Black & White
Weight:41 lbs
Variety:Bench
Beni is a 12-year-old black and white male who came to ESRA after Hurricane Irma. He was lost in the storm for several weeks and ended up in a shelter. Beni was in terrible shape, down to skin and bones. His coat was so badly matted he had to be shaved down to the skin. He was microchipped, but when his owners were contacted, they did not want him back.

Beni came to ESRA with an old hernia that caused him much discomfort. His hernia operation was a big success and Beni is now thriving. High quality dog food and plenty of it helped to get him to 41 solid pounds. As with many older Springers, he has lost much of his hearing but responds well to hand signals. He needed heartworm and other parasite treatment as a result of his time in the wilderness but he is now healthy as can be.

Beni has a squeak instead of a bark that is probably due to his previous owners having him de-barked. This literally means his vocal cords were clipped to stifle his barking. He does happily squeak and dance for attention now that he is such a happy boy!

His foster dad takes him to work almost daily and Beni loves it! He also loves riding in the car and is curious about everything that passes by.

At night he quickly settles in his warm dog bed, happy and secure that he will never be homeless again. Beni is the sweetest boy with so much character. He is simply a funny, silly Springer. Beni will bring love and joy to his forever home with his antics, energy and zest for life.

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

Variety:Mix
On a scale of cuteness Sophie would be an 11. This adorable 8-month-old puppy is a Springer/poodle mix. Her foster Mom describes her as playful, energetic, loving and smart, a typical Springer puppy!

Sophie has mastered potty training via the doggie door. She should quickly adjust to any household, doggie door or not. She knows the command “Sit” and her foster home is working on “Stay.” Since she is still very much a puppy, we will require her new adopter to attend puppy classes with Sophie. Counter surfing is Sophie’s favorite activity and she will steal any loose items that are left unattended. Training will help with that as well.

Sophie loves people and is outgoing and friendly. She has not been around small children yet but we think she will be great. She loves other dogs and adores playing the three resident dogs in her foster home. She has not been cat tested.

In one photo, Sophie is shown with a cast on her leg. She came into rescue with an existing leg injury which is now completely healed. Sophie will need an adopter who will provide her with plenty of exercise. She loves the water and will get wet any opportunity she can.

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

Zoey is very happy to be in her comfy foster home after being rescued from Hurricane Irma. Zoey traveled from Puerto Rico to South Florida and is bilingual in English and Spanish. She definitely needs to learn more commands in either language but has mastered “Sit” and is learning “Stop.” As with all our pups, we ask that Zoey be enrolled in a training class to fine-tune her manners.

Zoey is an active little girl who probably spent way too much time in a after Hurricane Irma. Her Forever Home will need to provide Zoey with plenty of exercise and stimulation.

Her foster Mom says she has never seen a dog that can jump like Zoey. She can run across the room and jump over one of her foster siblings, landing in her foster Mom’s lap! Zoey would be great at agility!

Zoey adores everyone she meets and curling up in her foster Dad’s lap is her favorite pastime. She will play with other dogs once she has been properly introduced. She loves toys, bones, treats and especially her dinner. She is very thin now but a healthy diet in her new home will fix that.

Zoey is a little gem of a pup – and at 18 months she is still very much a pup. She is cute as a button (with some Poodle in her DNA) and will thrive in an active home. If your lap is currently empty and you would like to fill it with an adorable pup, then look no further than Zoey!

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

Becca is a sweet young Springer that was passed around as a pup through no fault of her own. She is healthy and up to date on all her vaccines. She is a loving girl who enjoys nothing better than cuddling with her foster mom. In fact, she actually stands to give her hugs!

Becca is fine with the other dogs in her foster home and is very happy to play chase with her doggie pals. She has learned the "Come" command and seems to know she will be rewarded with a big hug when she obeys.
Becca is still perfecting her housetraining and is making significant progress.

She is smart as a whip and will thrive with further training. As with all our Springer puppies, her adopter must commit to enrolling Becca in a training class. She is still rather submissive and a class environment will provide her further socialization and confidence.

Becca is very energetic and would probably excel at Agility or other sports. She needs lots of exercise and probably a fenced yard so she can run and play to her heart’s content.

Becca promises she will be a loving and entertaining companion in her new home. She wants to remind you she gives free hugs anytime!

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

Introducing Milo, a young Springer boy in need of an active family. Milo is a “Go! Go! Go!” kind of guy who was turned over to rescue because his owners didn’t have the time and energy to devote to him.

Milo would thrive with a Forever Family willing in engage him physically and mentally. We all know that a tired dog is a good dog, and Milo is more than willing to run, jump and play to expend some of his Springer energy. Like all young dogs, he would benefit from an obedience class using positive reinforcement methods. That would help him bond with his new family and learn their house rules.

Milo is crate trained and has completed his heartworm treatment. Because of his high energy level, he needs a Forever Family with all adults or adults and teenagers and a fenced yard. A home with cats would not be a match for Milo.

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

Hi I am Finley, a four-year-old bench Springer that was turned into rescue for a newer model human. I get along with most dogs, especially females. I like the human females but my favorite playmate is a male human. They are just much more fun than females but still like the girls. I prefer older humans age 9 and up.

I am a great guy, but I do like to hunt so I should not be allowed to play with small dogs or cats that run. This does not make me a bad dog, just one that likes to chase. I am looking for a home with active humans who like to have fun. We all know that Springers like to have fun!

I am still trying to overcome a yeast problem. My foster mom is so educated in nutrition that I have improved immensely and continue to improve. No antibiotics but I do get special baths and an all raw diet to help me recoup from a year of problems. I am doing so much better and come with instructions on how to care for me. I just need a little TLC to become the best I can be! I am so ready to have my own family even though my foster mom and granddaughter are great!

I hope you will consider me as your next partner.

Love, Finley

Age:5 years

Meet handsome Parker. This boy is one of the sweetest, softest souls his foster mom has ever had the pleasure to share heart and home with. Parker literally oozes gentleness from every inch of his beautiful body!

Parker’s original owner turned him over to ESRA when he was suffering from front leg lameness and could no longer hunt. The diagnosis was Lyme Disease and ESRA made sure that Parker got the medication he needed. Multiple x-rays of both of his front legs, his shoulders and spine revealed no evidence of arthritis in his elbows or shoulders. However, Parker does have multiple calcified discs in his neck. It is believed that the "lameness" (which was actually weakness) in his right front leg is a result of the problem in his neck.

The neck problem will mean that Parker will be best suited to a relatively quiet life of retirement going forward. In his foster home, Parker wears a harness instead of a collar to minimize any further aggravation to his neck area. Additionally, we have discovered that Parker had been de-barked in the past. Because of this procedure, his bark sounds like he has laryngitis. On the positive side, this also means he is very quiet when he does bark.

Parker spent the first five years of his life living outdoors. We have promised him that will never happen again and his constant wagging tail tells us he approves of this arrangement! He lives in his foster home with multiple dogs and two cats, and gets along beautifully with everyone he encounters - two-legged or four-legged.

He loves to play with the other dogs, play with toys and loves to snuggle. This sweet boy will literally soak up all the petting he can get. Parker is housetrained, crate trained, and knows some basic commands.

Parker is looking for a Forever Home that will appreciate the softness and sweetness he offers. Who can resist that?

THINKING ABOUT BRINGING A SENIOR SPRINGER INTO YOUR FAMILY? Read why rescuing Senior Springers is a top priority for ESRA.
Duke is so happy to be an ESRA dog! So many people are telling him how handsome and sweet he is that he has to turn his head to make sure they are talking about him. Having spent his life until now outside 24/7, he’s still amazed that he has a nice warm bed to sleep in and all the attention a boy needs.

Duke’s date of birth was July 22, 2008. He’s 9 years old and still acts like a pup. He came with AKC papers, which will be made available to the adopter. It appears the papers were never submitted to the AKC but it’s never too late for that!

Duke lived on a large property with cats, goats and chickens but apparently there were lots of mosquitoes too. As a result, Duke contracted heartworm disease and has already started his treatment. He’ll be good as new shortly and he is otherwise healthy, up to date on his vaccines, neutered and microchipped.

Duke wants to go to a home where he is King. He appreciates being a Duke but now that he has all the human love he could ever want, he would prefer not to share it with another dog. Would you like to be one of Duke’s royal subjects? No throne or crown required but a warm and friendly castle is a must!

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