It's a whole new world for Jasmine! She's come a long way from being an outside hunting dog and having puppies.

She's smart, playful, snugly, eager to please and learn. Jasmine needs a family that will continue to help her learn with positive training and learning the ropes while gaining confidence. She wants to be included and part of the family.

Jasmine has learned the dog door and is house trained. She's also learned that she is allowed in the house and how to relax inside. She's crate trained. At first, the crate was the only place she felt comfortable. Once she saw the other dogs were allowed out, she wanted out too.

She's also learning to ride in the car. Being inside the car is a new experience for her.

This girl is an active eight-year-old. She loves toys (balls, Frisbee, sticks) and belly rubs. She loves to be with her people. She's happy to sit at your feet, but if allowed would love to be snuggled under your arm. If she's next to you, you must have your arm around her to pet her! She loves to go with her people. She would love her own fluffy bed or to join you on your bed.

She will greet you with a wiggle butt and happy WOO HOO! Jasmine also “woo-hoos” when she is hungry and as a thank you.

She's working on her leash manners (she probably was never exposed to one), her tendency to be a bit mouthy and her love of leather shoes and handbags. What lady doesn't like shoes and handbags?

Jasmine is whistle trained to Come and Sit. She also knows Up, Down, Sit and Come. She's apparently a strong swimmer. She likes to run through the sprinklers.

The mellow dogs are her favorites. She can be selective with some dogs. When she came into foster care, she was a bit fearful of the intentions of other dogs. She doesn't like to be cornered by other dogs and is also afraid they will take her food. She will warn them with a growl. She was very "interested" in the dog savvy cats at the vet’s office.

Jasmine has recently had some mammary tumors removed, been spayed and had some bad teeth removed. She’s feeling a lot better now!

She did have one tumor that was questionable and she will need a few x-rays as follow up over the next year. The vet feels that she is good to go and is ready to move to her Forever Home.

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

ESRA#:2016-126AZ
Status: Adopted
Date:2017-09-08
  
Age:10 years
Gender:Male
Color:Liver & White
Weight:50 lbs
Variety:Bench

Fenway's vet bills have accumulated to the point that we are asking for donations to assist him. If you would like to make a donation to ESRA specifically for Fenway (2016-126AZ), make sure to indicate his name and intake number when you do so. Please click here to reach our Donations page to help Fenway. Fenway will cheer for you!
Newsflash! Fenway’s no longer on the “injured” list and he is all set to play! He has completed his rehab and is ready for adoption! 

This gentleman came to ESRA with one torn ACL and soon needed surgery on both knees. He has now recovered from two TPLO (tibial plateau leveling osteotomy) surgeries. This has become one of the most popular orthopedic surgeries performed on dogs who have torn an ACL. The philosophy behind the TPLO surgery is to completely change the dynamics of the dog’s knee so that the torn ligament becomes irrelevant to the stability of the knee itself.

Both of these were expensive procedures, and he could use a little help. 

Fenway can be shy at first, but once he gets to know you, he warms up quickly and is a real lover. He has met children, and seems to like them. He gets along great with other dogs and with cats.

Fenway can be anxious when he gets groomed or goes to the vet, but otherwise he is a super sweet, happy boy. His vet said that he can do almost anything except agility exercises following his surgeries. He can work up to long walks and increasingly challenging hikes; swimming is excellent exercise for Fenway as well. 

This boy is ready and able to go to his Forever Home. Could you be Fenway’s new teammate and coach?

Age:7 years
Gender:Male
Color:Liver & White
Weight:58 lbs

Please welcome Emory, the gentleman with handsomely classic Springer good looks, to our program.  We are thrilled to have the opportunity to turn this lovely boy's life around.

His life as a pup started out with his human dad who hunted with him.  Due to a move, he was given away to a family via Craig’s List. But when Emory didn't get along with the resident dogs, he was passed on to a family member who sequestered him exclusively and continuously to the back yard.

For the last five years, Emory has lived alone in solitude with no vet care, no affection and the need and longing for something to occupy himself.  Unfortunately, his boredom and lack of stimulation resulted in occasional bouts of spinning and chasing his tail. This typically occurs when he's excited or needs some exercise -- yet it stops the minute he's distracted.  This behavior should subside as time goes on.

Since Emory’s arrival, he is now enjoying the life of an indoor dog along with air conditioning!  He is so sincerely excited and appreciative of his new-found companionship, too.

And, oh, what a major lover boy he is!  He is now flea free. His dry, sun-bleached coat has been shaved off, and he's on antibiotics for ear and skin infections.  Emory is basking in all the love and attention he's been receiving in his foster home.  He's learning basic obedience commands and leash manners.

Emory is absolutely wonderful! He is friendly with everyone and quite a social guy who is eager to go anywhere. He's housetrained, crate trained and good with cats.  He would do well with older children who would treat him respectfully.  He loves his toys, and boy, does he love his belly rubs.  Emory does need to live as an only dog in the household.  He's not fond of strange dogs in his face, but has fared very well meeting other dogs at the vet, pet store and on walks.

Emory's ideal home would have a stay- or work-at-home family, as he has spent far too many years alone.  We would like him to be an integral family member, included and involved whenever possible.  While he can be very laid-back, Emory's mind is sharp and in need of stimulation.  He needs daily exercise, good long walks and jogs, sniffing and exploring time -- time spent being a Springer!

Emory’s in good health.  He tested negative for heartworms, he was brought current on routine vaccinations and his blood work was good.  He was in desperate need of a dental, which we have done.  He is trim and fit.

We cannot begin to sing his praises enough.  If you are his "match made in heaven," please contact his Case Manager.

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

What a darling dog! That's the first words his foster mom said when she picked up Toby. Toby is a little on the small side for a Springer boy, weighing just thirty-two pounds. He rides great in a car and is doing well in his foster home that he shares with three dogs and a cat.

Toby is house trained and will sleep in a crate. He was a reluctant owner relinquishment. His family had a major upheaval in their lives, and the mom (along with six children) needed to move. So ESRA was there to help rehome this great little dog.

Toby is neutered, up to date on his shots and heartworm negative. He loves children and would do well in a home with children, other dogs and even a cat! He's just an all-around good boy.

Could you have that home that Toby is looking for?

Age:8 years

If you are looking for a loving companion, then Roxy is your gal! She is a sweet, gentle, and beautiful girl with perfect house manners. Roxy did not have the best start, as she spent most of her life outside in a backyard. She craved human company, so she was taken in by a kindhearted family member who recognized Roxy's need for affection. However, that person already had a houseful of pets. Recognizing that this lovely lady needed a family of her own, the owner turned to ESRA. Now Roxy will get to find the Forever Home where she can be the center of attention and receive the love that she has longed for and deserved all these years.

Roxy is a typical Velcro Springer, following her people from room to room. She is a head-on-the-knee kind of girl who has so much love and affection to give. Every greeting and treat is welcomed with lots of wiggles and a happy smile. She does well in the car after settling down, and the groomer says that she is a sweetheart, too.

Our Roxy is very eager to please. She is great off leash, and she listens well to basic commands like Sit, Come, and Down. Roxy needs a little practice walking on a leash, but she does not pull a lot; she just needs a reminder that there is someone on the other end of the leash! While she loves walks and enjoys running around the yard, Roxy does not have a high exercise requirement. She would rather just be wherever her people are. She is food motivated, and she picked up on the foster home routine quickly and willingly.

Roxy ignores the foster home cats as they are mellow and do not run. Her foster parents feel that she would do best as an only dog so that she can get all the attention of her humans. Although Roxy gets along with most dogs, she has a difficult time understanding their "language," so having another dog in the household could cause her confusion. Because Roxy has previously been attacked by a dog, she is often defensive around other canines.

In her foster home, Roxy has been amazing with the resident toddler, very patient and loving. However, she would probably do best with older children. She LOVES to swim, but she is a little unsure about what to do with toys. Although Roxy is not toy motivated, she is treat motivated. She is housetrained and has had no accidents in her foster home.

This girl really is all that you would expect in a great Springer Spaniel--loving, devoted, and highly affectionate. She is past the crazy puppy stage, but she is still young enough to have a happy, wiggly demeanor as well as the energy to go with her people wherever they may wander. Roxy is a definite keeper, and she is now taking inquiries from applicants who would like to become her Forever Family. Please contact her case manager to be considered.

Are you looking for a quiet, well-mannered friend?  Then you must meet Sparky!  Sparky’s foster mom describes him as a sweet and loving companion.  He follows her every step and loves to get belly rubs.

Sparky was found as a stray and the nice lady who found him contacted ESRA.  An owner was located; however, they decided they wanted a better life for Sparky.  Seems that he was living outside due to the owner’s allergies.  He was bored and lonely, so Sparky decided to go on adventures! His foster home must be a happy place, because Sparky has never once tried to escape.  

At first it was a little difficult adjusting to his new home, but Sparky eventually began to feel safe and loved. There were a few growling incidents, but it didn’t take long before he became part of the pack.  Sparky is happy as long has he doesn’t have to compete for attention. Can you ever get enough love?  Sparky doesn’t think so! 

What a good boy!  Sparky is house trained, crate trained and loves his toys.  He gets very excited and does a little dance before sitting politely for his treat. He’s not a high energy dog, but he would enjoy a daily walk or playtime in the yard as long as you’re with him.  Some basic training would be a great way to bond with him. While Sparky enjoys going outside to explore the back yard, he mostly wants to be a couch potato. He loves to go for car rides, especially when he gets a treat from the drive thru.  Cautious around strangers, he may bark or growl until you reassure him that everything is okay.  Then he warms up quickly, seeking affection. 

Sparky is neutered, current on vaccinations and microchipped.  He just completed heartworm treatment, so he’s ready to find his FOREVER home!   Please send us your application today to make this fabulous guy part of your family!

Please note: Due to the heat of the summer months, the airlines will not fly dogs during this season. Please don’t ask us to do that.

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

I am the new kid on the block here in Colorado and I am ready for it all! The sounds, the smells, the big backyard and the dogs. Oh yes, I love the other dogs and we play, play, play until we drop -- and sometimes my foster mom does too!

I think I am a pretty good-natured fellow. Playing with my Kong and playing fetch are high on my favorites list. I have been told I am pretty entertaining. I have heard the people call me friendly, bouncy, high energy and a typical Springer adolescent pup.

Woo! Woo! I forgot to tell you that I am an affectionate boy. I would love to crawl into any lap that can accommodate my 44 pounds!

Let me know if you're ready for a partner!
--Barkley



Barkley’s people think he is a work in progress, as might be expected at his age. He does okay on leash, but needs some work. He will counter surf if permitted and comes when he’s called (sometimes). He is crate trained, but isn’t crazy about it. House training is for Barkley is also progressing extremely well! His foster mom reports that he hasn’t had any accidents recently. Barkley also likes car rides and is a quiet passenger.

Barkley needs an active family that is able to provide plenty of activity for him. He would enjoy a playmate, but could adapt to life as a single dog with good, quality exercise. He has done well at doggy day care in the past. He probably is too energetic for younger children and he has not yet been tested with older children. He has not been tested with cats, either.

If you think you and your family are ready to help Barkley become an awesome adult dog, please let us know. He’s already an amazing pup!

Pretty as a penny describes our Colorado girl.  She is a sweetheart and loves being with her people.  

Penny loves her chew toys and will pick up a stray towel or shoe if made available!  After all, she is still a young girl!  She loves to greet her people with a toy (or towel) in her mouth. Sniffing and chasing rabbits are high on her list of pleasures, too. Penny loves her hour-long morning walk with her new foster brother.   She gets along well with him and did quite well with school-aged children and a baby. Cats are an unknown, but she has the prey drive expected of a field bred Springer.

Penny came to us due to her family’s concern about her safety.  When the front door was left open, Penny took advantage and went on her own run.  Although we have been cautious, Penny has not tried to bolt from her foster home.  She is content with her morning walk and spending time with her people. Yes, she is a Velcro Springer. She is a little shy on first meeting, but warms up quickly.

Penny could use some work on her leash-walking skills.  That said, she is a smart girl who learns quickly.  She is healthy and current on her vaccinations.  Penny came to us with a few extra pounds but has already shed four of those pounds.  Regular exercise and a good diet have helped.

Penny’s needs are simple. She wants a Forever Home that will provide her regular, moderate exercise and will provide her the attention and gentle care she deserves.  Let us know if you might be the right family for our girl!

Age:12 years

Weight:45 lbs
Variety:Bench

Thinking about bringing Brice or another wonderful Senior Springer into your family? Read why rescuing Senior Springers is a top priority for ESRA.
Brice is a sweet, gentle old man who has negotiated lots of lumps and bumps in the road of life. Like lots of us, he has some arthritis, a growth here and there, and is a bit hard of hearing. But he still loves a nice walk in the fresh air, a dip in the pool, a kiss and a hug, hanging out on the couch with his people and the company of other dogs. 

We know he didn’t have much of a life before ESRA took him on and he was very ill when he came into rescue. His blood work revealed he was not producing red blood cells at a sufficient rate to sustain his life. After a few months of treatment, Brice has made great progress health-wise and he deserves to be loved and well cared for in his later years.

Brice is house trained, uses the dog door and is up to date on all his shots. The medicines he is currently taking are supplements: Vetri Science Senior Multivitamin and Dasuquin. Brice was taking Doxycycline daily (in case he had a tick-borne disease or an infection) but we have taken him off the Doxy and will test him shortly to see if his blood work is remaining in normal range without the drug.

Brice is not a demanding type; he is happy to rest on a comfy pillow by your chair in the office or lay on the couch with you when you watch television. He is older, so he does enjoy his naps. But come walk time, he is ready to go a couple of laps. Brice gets along with all the people and animals he has met. He loves them and they love him. He loves his treats and dinner. He does get anxious when riding in the car and needs to be kenneled.

If you are interested having a loving old guy to hang out with, Brice is your man!

Please note: Due to the heat of the summer months, the airlines will not fly dogs during this season. Please don’t ask us to do that.

Weight:50 lbs
Variety:Field
Tulo is an older guy who is ready for a place to call his own. When Tulo first came into rescue, he was easily frightened and mostly kept to himself. With love and care from his foster dad, Tulo’s Springer joy started to shine through. He loves meeting people when they come to the door and while out on walks or hikes. Tulo has learned it is okay to ask for love and attention from people. He has become more affectionate and enjoys being part of the family.

Tulo is an adventurous guy. He loves to explore on walks and hikes and is not afraid to jump in the water after a ball. Tulo was named for his love of playing catch; if you can throw it, he will run. Tulo lives just fine with his Springer siblings, but would be just as happy in a home where he is the only dog. He has great house manners and has run of the house when his humans are out. Tulo uses the dog door, rides well in the car and is good while on walks. Tulo does wonderfully around women and children, but sometimes men can still scare him. We believe this is due to mistreatment from his past. He needs a family that will respect Tulo’s request for a little space when he needs it ~ he does let you know when he is uncomfortable. Tulo is still an active Springer, but when it is nap time there is no better place than in his “man cave” or sometimes on the couch.

Tulo does have arthritis in his ankles and to a lesser degree in his wrists and elbow. With time and testing, we have found a helpful medication regimen for him to help with swelling and pain. This medication plan will need to be followed for the rest of his life to help keep him comfortable and as active as he is now. 

Tulo would be a great companion if you are looking for a Springer shadow, to go for walks and take in the world around you, and of course a good game of fetch in the backyard. He is a sweet boy who deserves a home to call his own. Please let us know if you would like to meet Tulo.

Interested in Callie and Franklin? Then read about bonded pairs and the benefits of adopting these special best friends.
Howdy ya’ll!  I’m Callie and my buddy here is Franklin.  We were hanging out and running around the Rio Grande Valley. A nice woman took us home with her, but she already had dogs and couldn’t keep us.  We’re Texans through and through and have now recovered from our dusty rambling.  We’re now cleaned up and beautiful.  When we’re outside, our favorite things are running and playing.  We’re both house trained and crate trained, love to ride in the car and sit for our treats.

Neither of us is dominant or aggressive, but because we love to run and play, we prefer children old enough to play with us.  

If you’re looking for fun and games on the ranch and a good all ‘round pair of Springers, we’re the cowhands for you. 

Happy trails,
Callie and Franklin



Callie and Franklin’s foster home says:  

Callie and Franklin are very attached to each other and we would like to place them together, if at all possible.  Callie has been Franklin’s companion for a long time and makes him feel secure.  They even sleep in the crate together.  Both dogs are super loving, friendly, and happy, happy all the time.

These gentle souls have a calm and loving temperament with a playful personality.  They are a bit shy at first (especially Franklin), but once they get to know you, they’re friendly and happy. They love to be near each other and their people.

Snuggling is their specialty. Callie and Franklin get along with children and other dogs, but Callie has a strong prey instinct and will absolutely chase a cat or squirrel.

Franklin loves to run and romp outside.  It’s fun to watch him when he hears a bird or squirrel.  Callie is as loving and affectionate as any dog we’ve ever met. She lives to put her head in your lap for a pet. Both of them play and run outside, but are calm in the house. They are happy and playful, but have a moderate energy level. If you’re looking for young, playful, loyal family members, then this pair is for you!


This pair of beautiful Springers will make a fabulous addition to any family!  They are both current on vaccines and are microchipped. Unfortunately, Callie did not get heartworm preventative and she has heartworm disease. Since she is otherwise young and healthy, she is currently being treated for the heartworms and they will be ready to go to their new Forever Home soon.

Important note for potential adopters of Callie: Due to Callie's present heart condition, all out-of-state adopters must come to the state of Texas to retrieve Callie. She cannot be transported via aircraft and she will not be relocated to a high-altitude Forever Home.


Please note: Due to the heat of the summer months, the airlines will not fly dogs during this season. Please don’t ask us to do that.

Eddie is a seven-year-old liver-and-white Springer with some Lab thrown in. He represents the best of both breeds.  This boy is smart, sweet and very affectionate.

Eddie came to ESRA as an owner relinquishment due to his severe allergies.  His family tried to get Eddie the treatment he needed but turned to ESRA for help.  ESRA has provided this sweet boy with care by a veterinary dermatologist to help determine what he is allergic to and how to get him healthy.  Since entering ESRA's care, Eddie has greatly improved, but it is likely that he will continue to require specialized care for the rest of his life.

Eddie has found his way to settle in with his foster family, which includes two ESRA Springers. He fits in beautifully.  He loves to play with his foster siblings and they are mostly patient with him when he wants all the toys for his own.  Eddie is house trained, neutered and up to date on preventative vaccinations.  

Eddie knows basic commands and truly wants to please.  He responds immediately to any correction. Eddie is a cuddle bug and happy to snuggle on your lap.  He could easily live with another dog who is not dominant or as an only dog, so long as he could spend a lot of time with his humans.  Eddie used to live with children and is very good with children of any age.  It is unknown how he would do with cats.

Eddie's biggest wish is to be loved and to get a lot of attention from his human family.  His allergy health needs will continue to be a part of his life.  Most likely he will need medication and special food to keep his allergy treatment stable.  These exact medical needs are still under evaluation as we continue to make small adjustments to his treatment.  

Eddie's foster family describes him as perfect.  They have worked very hard to help this sweet boy overcome his allergies.  If they didn't already have two resident Springers, he would be a part of their permanent family.  Instead, they look forward to working to help Eddie find a Forever Home that will be as committed to him as they are.

If you would like to meet sweet Eddie please fill out an adoption application today.

CeeGee is a very beautiful and sweet-natured girl, and we are so grateful to be able to assist her. True to the Springer breed, she has a few little quirks, and she will require very experienced, Springer-savvy adopters to help her.

CeeGee is in extremely fine shape for a lady of her age. She loves her walks, and her foster family takes her on a minimum of two long walks per day. She uses a Gentle Leader for her walks as recommend by her veterinarian. She is quite muscular and is a very youthful eight-year-old. CeeGee is not a candidate to be a couch potato. She needs exercise and loves it! She loves her toys, too.

Another of CeeGee's very good traits is the fact that she grew up with and gets along terrifically with other dogs. A home with a kind, non-dominant dog similar in size would be considered for CeeGee. She is indeed a hunting dog, so no toy breed dogs are recommended for her. We do not know how she is with cats, so we prefer that she not go into a household with felines. She has lived beautifully with children. She is presently in an all-adult home, and the quietness of that environment and the stability it offers are very preferable for CeeGee. Less commotion for her is better. She likes a mellow home. She likes to hang out with you as you watch television or do yard work. True to the Springer breed, she will lie under your desk at your feet when you are on the computer. She spends a huge amount of her day just being mellow and well behaved.

CeeGee is totally housetrained and has perfect house manners. She is crate trained. Currently she sleeps on her cushy bed on the floor in the master bedroom. She is very polite when she is fed and is not protective of her feeding dish. She is great with commands such as Sit, Stay, Come, Down and Go for a Walk. (She loves that last one!) CeeGee is a true Springer cuddler if she is on the couch or the bed with you.

What about those little quirks of CeeGee's? Well, she is an obsessive/compulsive light chaser. We have seen this many times with Springers. English Springer Rescue America, Inc., true to its credo, has invested in providing the best of care for CeeGee by securing the services of a veterinary behaviorist to write a program for her. CeeGee is progressing as we expected. She will need to remain on a really inexpensive medication for her OCD light chasing, and we expect her to live out a very normal life thanks to our efforts and those of her foster family. Her new Forever Family must be extremely dedicated to following the program written by the behaviorist. This regimen is rather simple and includes, but is not limited to, keeping her on her medication and using the Gentle Leader.

Adding CeeGee to your home will require commitment. Additionally, CeeGee should live with people who are either retired or who work from home. She is not suitable for adoption by owners who are away at work for six to ten hours a day. She is used to a stay-at-home family.

All dog owners need to be committed to their pets' needs, but CeeGee requires just a little more effort and consistency due to her light-chasing disorder. If her adopters follow the behaviorist's program, CeeGee will be an easy dog to have as a family member--and she is a real joy!

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

Age:5 years
Gender:Female
Color:Liver & White
Weight:50 lbs

Suzi is a sweet, happy, easy-going girl of about five or six years of age.

Her past is a mystery, but she adapted quickly to foster care and the company of other dogs. She is well behaved in the house, can use a doggie door, walks well on a leash and enjoys chasing tennis balls. She likes hiking and outdoor activities, but like most Springers, she is happy to stay indoors and is happiest when curling up next to her human.  

We aren’t aware if she has been around cats, but she seems to love people of all ages. She is patient while being groomed and loves being able to ride in the car.

If you think you can provide Suzi with a Forever Home, please contact her case manager for more information about this special girl.

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