ESRA#:2017-103FL

Age:3 years
Gender:Female
Color:Liver & White
Weight:25 lbs
Variety:Bench
LulaBelle is a sweet little girl (we do mean little at 25 pounds) but her personality and love of life are at least twice that size.

Lula came to us with skin issues and they are definitely on the mend. Her pretty liver and white coat is starting to grow back with medication and prescription food.

Lula is a Velcro dog. She loves to be with her foster mom and even though she interacts with the resident dogs, she would prefer to be queen of her castle. She loves to snuggle and give kisses and is extremely affectionate. She loves her walks and is well behaved on her leash. Lula is rather shy with new people and will bark until they meet and greet. Then Lula is their new best friend!

Lula knows the commands "Sit," "Stay," "Come" and "No." She is housetrained and crate trained. She loves to be brushed, does not complain when groomed and is cooperative when having her ears cleaned. Lula loves to play with toys and will chase and fetch. Her foster Mom also states she loves water and is so receptive to training she might be a good candidate for agility or therapy dog training. Lula’s previous owner stated Lula is fine with kids but she has not been tested with cats.

Lula will make a great companion for her new adopter. She is a puppy at heart and promises to keep you entertained and loved forever!

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

5/22/17: We are sad to report that Beaux passed away in foster care. He was loved and will be missed by his foster dad.


Beaux is a sweet and loving older gentleman in search of a retirement home where he can soak up plenty of human attention. He appears to have been ignored and neglected before coming into rescue, and is ever so grateful for kindness and petting.

He is gentle, laid back and eager to please. He understands “Sit” and crates nicely upon request, but doesn’t know a lot of other commands. Though he hasn’t had a lot of training, he tries his best to do whatever is asked of him.

His foster dad recently gave him a long-overdue haircut and a couple baths. It appears that this boy went without such basic care for a long time. With inexpensive thyroid medication, good grooming and good-quality food, his skin and coat are much improved.

Beau x is trusting and friendly with everyone he meets and gets along fine with the other dogs in his foster home. He believes in “early to bed, early to rise,” expecting breakfast first thing in the morning, even on weekends. He prefers – and deserves – a cushy indoor lifestyle.

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

Introducing Reggie, a big, cute, playful Springer boy looking to share his love with the right Forever Family. He is sweet and smart, fully housetrained, knows many commands (“Sit,” “Down,” “Come,” “Shake” and “Fetch”) and walks nicely on his leash. He is a huge fan of playtime and squeaky toys, especially Kong squeaker tennis balls and stuffed animals that make noises.

Reggie startles easy when approached by exuberant strangers, then warms right up and makes friends when the excitement level drops. Calm greetings are best. For this reason, he would do best in a home without too much hustle and bustle. Once he gets to know people, he is quite welcoming and social. He now greets regular visitors to his foster home by wagging his full tail.

When meeting other dogs for the first time, Reggie can be apprehensive. We think needs to be an only dog or to be carefully introduced by a dog-savvy adopter. He is sharing his foster home with two Springers and a cat and has relaxed around the other dogs and learned to enjoy playing with the female Springer. He is transfixed by the cat and can’t decide whether to make friends or chase.

Mostly, Reggie just wants to be closely bonded to his people. His foster mom describes him as very affectionate and people-oriented, smart, cautious and very keen to please.

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

Age:6 years

Color:Unique coat
Weight:35 lbs

Six-year-old Tucker has made great strides in foster care, after being rescued from a hoarding situation with 12 other dogs in late 2016. He is bright, smart, eager to learn and generally good natured.

Tucker LOVES tennis balls and stuffed animals and can be quite acrobatic when chasing them. He hoards them and will destroy them after some play. He is also catching on with clicker training and has demonstrated an aptitude for K9 Nose Work. Teaching him tricks, K9 Nose Work and other activities that require mental and/or physical exercise would be huge confidence-builders.

This young man would make a nice companion for a Forever Family with the willingness and patience to continue his training and help him settle in. He is a typical Velcro dog who would do best with someone home most of the time. Tucker bonds quickly and will bark when separated from his primary caretaker. He is housetrained and would do fine with other friendly dogs or as an only dog.

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

Missy is an absolutely gorgeous Springer and don’t let the fact that she is 10 years old fool you. Missy's veterinarian remarked on her beautiful teeth and pronounced her fit and healthy. Missy is even a delight at the groomers.
Missy is a talker! She is an absolute delight when she sings her Springer Woo Woo.

Missy is blind. She is amazing at getting around in familiar places and is great with other dogs in her foster home. She follows the Cavalier King George Spaniel all through the house when she hears his collar and tags rattling! Her treatment is one drop of medicine in her eyes once a day. Her drops are quite inexpensive.

Missy is sweet as can be. She loves belly rubs, cuddling and unconditional love. Missy would like a Forever Family who will work with her on commands and be patient as she settles into her Forever Home. She needs to be leashed walk until she is familiar with her fenced yard.

Anyone who has adopted a blind dog will tell you the dog has adapted easily and has a special place in her adopter’s heart. Missy will bring joy to her adopter and her adopter will bring joy to Missy!

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

Age:3 years
Gender:Male
Color:Liver & White
Weight:55 lbs
Variety:Mix
Introducing Phelps, a sweet, slightly shy young man who is learning new things and enjoying new experiences in foster care. Because he spent his first two years in a poor living situation, he came to us poorly socialized and fearful. Indoor living was all new to him. Now his confidence is growing by leaps and bounds and he is enjoying belly rubs, romps in the yard and walks in the park.

This boy will bond quickly, deeply and strongly with anyone who is willing to start off slow and easy and win his trust. He wants to be friendly with people and get attention but will initially back off if they come on too strong. Because he is still a little fearful of fast movements and loud noises, he would do best in an all-adult household.

Phelps walks surprisingly nicely on his leash and harness and is learning his basic commands, including an impressive “Stay.” He is housetrained as long as potty breaks are taken on schedule. He has a typical young dog mouthy play style (but doesn’t close down or bite) and would absolutely LOVE a good supply of bones and toys.

In foster care, he has been roughhousing with a female Springer. He prefers the ladies over other male dogs, and he would require a meet-and-greet session with any potential doggie sisters to make sure everyone gets along. He would also do quite well as an only dog. He recently visited a home with a cat, and they got along fine. As shown in his video clip, he is energetic and would love the chance to run in a securely fenced yard.

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

Age:6 years

Weight:40 lbs
Variety:Bench
Georgie is a sweet, wiggly, happy Springer girl who can’t get enough human attention. She is very people-oriented and outgoing, happily greeting everyone she meets. She can’t get enough petting and especially likes scratches just above her tail. She loves visitors and, if allowed, will welcome them by climbing into their laps and giving kisses.

She is also something of a diva who would like ALL the human affection and ALL the dog toys. She is a collector of stuffed animals and squeaky toys and has no interest in sharing her prizes – or her people – with other dogs. For this reason, she would do best as an only dog.

Georgie is perky and energetic and would love a fenced yard to explore. She would fit in well with active owners and will happily chase her tennis ball and bring it back for more. She seems interested in water and is fascinated with the bathtubs in her foster home, hopping in several times a day, even if the tub has not fully drained.

She is fully housetrained and is working to improve her leash-walking skills. However, she is also basically a 5-year-old puppy who will countersurf and get into things, so her Forever Family will need a sense of humor and some patience. We highly recommend enrolling her in an obedience class, helpful for both training and bonding with her new family. She does fine home alone as long as doors are closed to any non-puppy-proofed rooms.

Georgie also suffers from some allergies, which are managed with a special diet and daily antihistamines. When she first came to foster care, these untreated allergies had resulted in an ear infection so severe that her eardrum membranes had ruptured. We are happy to report that her ears have now healed.

Though we haven’t had the chance to kid-test her in foster care, we expect she would do well with teens. Young children might get upset if she claimed one of their stuffed animals as her own. Mostly, she wants a Forever Family willing to treat her as the princess she believes she is.

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

Age:9 years
Gender:Male
Color:B&W Tricolor
Weight:42 lbs
Variety:Bench
Trey is a handsome, dignified gentleman in need of a quiet place to call home. At nine years old, he is less energetic than an adolescent Springer but still active enough for walks, errands and playtime. He enjoys his toys, is housetrained and and knows how to use a doggie door.

Trey loves human attention and would make a marvelous, loving companion for the right person. He is quick to bond and gives plenty of sweet Springer kisses. He is on the smaller end of the Springer size spectrum, and his favorite place to be is someone’s lap, though he will also sleep on a dog bed.

If Trey has a fault, it would be that he loves too much and doesn’t want to share his human’s affection with other dogs. For this reason, he does need to be the only pampered pet in his Forever Home and needs to be in an all-adult home.

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

THINKING ABOUT BRINGING A SENIOR SPRINGER INTO YOUR FAMILY? Read why rescuing Senior Springers is a top priority for ESRA.
Introducing Lady Bird, a sweet, young-at-heart senior who came into rescue after her owner for the last 11 years passed away. Her world was turned upside down and she is now looking for a patient, caring new Forever Family to help her adjust. Understandably, Lady Bird is a bit shy and insecure at first, then warms up to new people and turns into a wonderful Velcro Springer companion.

We think Lady Bird would prefer a quiet, calm home with someone home much of the time. This little lady would fit in wonderfully in a retirement community. She would enjoy helping with yardwork and accompanying her owners on regular walks through the neighborhood. A fenced yard and a doggie door would be wonderful for her. She is on the active side for an eleven-year-old and also would enjoy swimming. On her first day in foster care, she hopped right into both the fish pond and the swimming pool.

While she has lived with other dogs, she would do just fine as an only dog or with another older, calm doggie sibling. The noise and activity level of young children would frighten her.

Lady Bird is generally healthy and appears much younger than eleven. In fact, rescue veterinarians originally estimated her age to be as young as five. She does have some allergies that are controlled with an oral allergy spray, administered daily.

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

Introducing Teddy, one of the youngest members of our Florence Pack, a group of 10 dogs rescued from a hoarder situation in Alabama in late 2016. In foster care, Teddy is sweet and shy. He is affectionate and bonds more quickly to women than to men. He likes to take it slow and he likes it when you get down on the ground with him and let him come to you, eventually working his way onto your lap.

Teddy has learned his name and a few basic commands and is housetrained. He gets along fine with the two other dogs in his foster home, but would also do well as an only dog. He will need a calm, adult household and would do best with someone home most of the time. Once he bonds, he bonds deeply and becomes a Velcro dog and constant, loyal companion.

He is a HUGE fan of tennis balls and always up for a game of fetch. He feels more secure with a tennis ball in his mouth and will chew and break them over time.

In addition to Springer and English Setter, we think Teddy also has some Beagle somewhere in his lineage. He is quite the talker when excited, happily greeting his foster family with vocalizations that include a cute Beagle-like howl.

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

Tillie, or Buster's Friend Tillie as her AKC Certificate indicates, is a sweet 7-year-old girl looking for her Forever Home. Tillie is very well mannered, takes treats gently and knows the basic commands. She does not get on the furniture unless you invite her.

While she is great with other dogs and children, she would not do well in a house with a cat. This little girl was born to hunt! She loves chasing squirrels, rabbits, and ducks and will do great in a home with a lot of land to run around. Going on long walks is something Tillie really enjoys.

Tillie was living outside before she came to ESRA, and is ready to find a family who will make her a part of their lives.

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

Pepper is so happy to be an inside dog. She spent most of her eight years living outside or on a porch. Pepper’s owner became ill and could no longer care for her, but luckily she ended up in ESRA’s care.

This pretty black-and-white girl has freckles galore. She is currently shaved down since she was loaded with mats from living outside. No more living outside for Pepper! She goes out to go potty but likes to return to the house quickly. Pepper has certainly adjusted to the inside life in her foster home. Pepper quickly learned that lying in a soft dog bed or next to her foster mom is the way to go! She loves to cuddle and be next to her person.

Other resident dogs are no problem for Pepper. Cats, she ignores them. She is a very easy girl to have in the home and will be a wonderful companion for an adopter who likes to cuddle and snuggle with her.

Pepper is heartworm negative and up to date on all her vaccines. She is a healthy Springer, ready to go to her Forever Home. Do you think this lovely girl is the right Springer for you?

Sweet little Timothy (aka Timmy) is one of 13 dogs rescued in October from a hoarding situation in North Alabama. He came to us with bad skin, bad ears and truly horrible teeth. Thanks to ESRA, all of these issues have been treated and resolved.

Timmy is a bright and chipper senior who is looking for a quiet Forever Home and Forever Family. He is good with other dogs and cats. He is a good car rider and has made several trips with his foster family, which have helped to build his confidence around new people and new situations. He is also good when left alone while his foster family works.

If you don't think old dogs can learn new tricks, Timmy will quickly prove you wrong! He learned to use the doggy door to let himself outside to explore and go potty. He also knows how to use doggy stairs to get into his foster parents' bed.

This little man is a gem of a dog. He is housetrained, crate trained, fully vaccinated and neutered.

Timmy's favorite things are napping during football games, snuggling and cheese.

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

Age:14 months
Gender:Male
Color:Black & White
Weight:50 lbs

Meet Remy, an energetic, happy puppy looking for an active Forever Family. The world is his playground, and he is ready for adventure. Remy loves the outdoors and the car and is always up for a walk or a hike. His foster mom says his leash manners are excellent, considering his young age.

Remy craves human attention and loves to play with other dogs – and will even try to get cats to play with him. He likes to go full speed ahead until he gets some of that puppy energy out of his system, and then is calm and well-behaved in the house. He would love to have another active, playful dog in his Forever Family. If another dog tells him to back off, he is respectful. Because he is so rambunctious, he needs a home without small children. Teens would be great fun.

He is smart and a quick learner. In foster care, he has quickly mastered “Come,” “Wait,” “Leave It,” “Off” (for counter surfing of jumping up on folks) and learned his name. He is fully housetrained as well and very treat motivated. Down the road, he might be a great candidate for agility or other active doggie sports. We believe he has some Border Collie in his pedigree, as well as Springer.

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