Handsome Henry is searching for the most wonderful home in the world! He was adopted four years ago, yet recent changes in his adopters’ lives forced them to return Henry to us.

Henry is one of the most loving and affectionate boys you have ever met. He's vivacious, happy and always wearing a smile. He is devoted and loyal to his people and simply wants to be loved. He is the most lovable snuggler ever! He's full of energy, more like a five-year-old Springer boy.

Because he can be somewhat anxious, Henry will require an adopter who will offer him good daily exercise, rules, routine and stability, and lots of time. Henry's been through a lot after losing two families in his life. Henry does have his limitations requiring an adult home and he needs to be the only dog. We prefer to adopt him to a previous Springer owner.

Henry is lean and fit and very healthy. His senior blood panel came back flawless and his teeth were just cleaned. He his heartworm negative, current on vaccines and microchipped.

If you are all that Henry needs and deserves, please email his Case Manager.

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

Millie came to us from a family whose schedule became too busy for them to provide Millie the time and attention she deserves. They made the difficult decision to release sweet Millie to ESRA.

Millie is a sweet, loving and well-mannered Springer. Millie never turns down a chance to go for a walk and will join you every time for a ride in the car. She is crate trained, learned how to use a doggie door quickly and is a lady in the house. Millie is great with other dogs, loves people of all ages and prefers to have her people home with her more than they are gone. Millie is untested with cats, so we are unsure how she will respond when in the presence of a feline friend.

Millie is a healthy girl who needs to lose a few pounds. She has already lost a few pounds while in foster care, but continued daily walks and play time will help her slim down to a more ideal weight for her.

Millie is a wonderful Springer who is looking for her Forever Home. If you have completed the application approval process, would like to learn more about Millie and are willing to travel to meet Millie in person, please let us know.

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

Age:12 years

Weight:35 lbs

This very sweet girl was surrendered to a shelter by her owner, who felt that she could no longer care for Princess. ESRA heard about her quickly and pulled her from the shelter less than twenty-four hours later. Even though this experience was traumatizing for Princess, she has now settled beautifully into her foster home, bonding with her foster mom and getting along well with the resident dogs.

Princess is a gorgeous liver-and-white Springer mix whose undocked tail curls up over her back -- that is, when she's not wagging it, which is almost constantly! Her foster mom says, "If I didn't already have the legal limit of dogs, Princess would definitely be staying here. I love her." Like all Springers, Princess bonds strongly and loves her owner's lap. And if you don't mind, she'd really like to sleep on the foot of your bed at night. Otherwise, she'll sleep on the floor next to the bed.

The ideal Forever Home for Princess will be one where someone is home most of the time and in which she's included in family activities. It might take some patience while she adjusts to another change, but her foster mom promises that Princess is well worth it. Another dog for company would also be desirable for this calm and friendly girl.

This well-behaved lady walks nicely on a leash, rides quietly in the backseat of a car, and knows the following commands: Sit, Lay, Shake, Stay, Heel, and Go Potty Now. She's housetrained and is using the doggie door in her foster home.

Our little Princess is heartworm negative and has been spayed, microchipped, and fully vaccinated. Her health is generally excellent. Blood tests indicated a slightly low thyroid level, for which she takes an inexpensive pill twice a day.

If you think you have the perfect home for this wonderful girl, please contact her foster mom right away. You'll be glad that you did -- she's a keeper!

Thinking about bringing Zappa or another wonderful Senior into your family? Read why rescuing Seniors is a top priority for ESRA.
We are pleased to introduce Zappa, a wonderful Springer/border collie mix. Zappa’s family moved out of the country and were unable to take him with them. This truly broke their hearts, but they knew that ESRA would find him the perfect new Forever Home. Zappa’s family reported that he is great with people, and he loves to play with other friendly dogs his size or larger. He enjoys running and hiking, fetching balls, riding in cars, and just being lazy at times.

From Zappa’s foster family: This is a sweet, gentle fellow who is truly happy and good-natured. Zappa gets along well with people of all ages and dogs of all sizes. His behavior with cats is unknown, but we suspect that there would be no problems. Zappa's tail is constantly wagging to show his happiness with life. He easily assimilated into our home, and he gets along really well with the two resident dogs. Zappa enjoys playing with his doggie toys, chasing lizards and birds in the yard, and playing ball. He is housetrained, is good on the leash, and has nice manners. Zappa is very obedient, and he knows the commands Sit and Come. This mellow boy has an easy-to-medium activity level. He is quite affectionate, and he loves to curl up at your feet and snooze.

Zappa is a very healthy middle-aged gentleman who is up to date on his vaccinations and is neutered, heartworm negative, and microchipped. He has a loveable personality and would do well in a quiet, loving, moderately active home. He would like having a yard in which he could hunt out those pesky lizards and squirrels for you! Someone who is regularly home for at least part of the day would be an added bonus. Zappa would enjoy the company of another canine companion, but he would do equally well as an only dog.

Anyone interested in adopting Zappa must realize that in order for him to become a wonderful family member, it is absolutely necessary to include him in all phases of the family's life. Zappa will enjoy any and all activities as long as his people are near him. Zappa is a sweet boy looking for a Forever Home where he will receive the unconditional love he deserves. If you think you might be the right family for Zappa, please contact his case manager at the email address below.

Please note that an approved adoption application is the first step in a more thorough interview process that is designed to match each dog to exactly the right family, and that the final decision rests with the dog's case manager.

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

Bentley is a very handsome fifty-pound, two-year-old black and white Springer that was surrendered by his owner. She loved him very much but found herself in a life situation where she could not keep him in her home, so she turned to ESRA for help. He has been very well cared for and is a wonderful, loving boy.

Bentley has a ton of energy and loves to run! In order for Bentley to be a good inside dog, running to release his energy each morning is very important! He has been well trained and knows basic commands. Since he loves to run, he needs work on coming when called. If he is focused on something other than listening, it can be difficult to get him back. His foster mom has found whistling loudly gets his attention and changes his focus.

Bentley loves to play, loves to watch and chase birds and squirrels and is a very happy boy. In typical Springer fashion, he is a snuggle bug and prefers to spend his inside time at the feet of his humans or on their lap. He also prefers the end of a human's bed over a dog bed!

His previous owner reported aggressive behavior towards other large male dogs. His foster home has a small male dog and a special needs female Springer. There has been no aggression when hanging out, but he has let them know he doesn't want to share his food. He has reportedly done fine in dog parks, although caution should be used around other male dogs.

He adopted his foster humans very quickly and with minimal anxiety. He does tend to be slightly human possessive and will be protective. He has a loud, deep bark that will alert his humans, but barks only when he is unsure of something or there are birds or a squirrel outside!

He has passed all tests in his foster home with toddlers, infants and other guests. He is very friendly and loves people and children. He does need some training to prevent jumping when he gets too excited.

Bentley's ideal Forever Home would be one where he can be the only dog and have only a few humans to care for. He needs lots of love and attention and wants to be a part of a family that he can spend lots of time with. He has a sweet, sensitive personality and although he needs a firm tone at times to mind, he can frighten easily by a mean-sounding tone. He is not fond of crates but loves to ride in the car with his head out the window!

If you would like to know more about Bentley, contact his coordinator at the email address below.

Click here to see the puppies playing with their larger cousins!
Introducing Harmonia (or Harmony, as her foster family calls her), an adorable Springer/border collie puppy. Animal control officers found her along with her sister and two brothers abandoned on a street in Bakersfield. ESRA was at the shelter the day the puppies became available, and they are now thriving in foster care. Their foster families are diligently working on housetraining skills and basic manners while the little ones are in the house. Outside, of course, it is a free-for-all with puppies romping, play-fighting, chewing on toys, and exploring their new territory. They are also playing well with the resident dogs, who are teaching them how to properly interact with other canines.

Harmony is gentle and a little bit shy. She loves her chew toys and stuffies both when she is inside and outside. Harmony is looking for a home where she will have another young dog to play with, a family who will include her in every aspect of their daily activities, and obedience classes to help her learn how to become the best companion possible.

Harmony has had her first set of puppy shots, and she has been dewormed, microchipped, and spayed. Her new owners will be responsible for her next two sets of puppy shots, including her rabies vaccination with the final set. They will also be responsible for ensuring that Harmony is properly licensed for whichever area her new home is in.

Important notes about puppies:

We do not place puppies as presents or surprises. The entire prospective adopting family needs to come to Hemet to meet Harmony. 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.


Please note that an approved adoption application is the first step in a more thorough interview process that is designed to match each dog to exactly the right family, and that the final decision rests with the dog's case manager.

Interested in Lady and Rocky? Then read about bonded pairs and the benefits of adopting these special best friends.
SPECIAL NOTE: Lady and Rocky desperately need a foster home without other dogs. Please contact their case manager at the email address below as soon as possible if you are interested in fostering this delightful duo!


We are pleased to introduce our newest bonded pair, Lady and Rocky. These wonderful Springers have had their world turned upside down recently after losing both of their human parents in a short period of time. They have always been together, and they enjoy sitting and snuggling next to each other and keeping the other one in sight. Rocky and Lady will therefore need to be adopted as a bonded pair.

Lady is a healthy girl who needs to lose a few pounds. Because of the recent upheaval in her life, she is a bit insecure and shy at first with new people, but she will quickly become your loyal companion once she gets to know you. And the offer of a treat seems to speed up the introduction process! Lady will sit and wait politely (see her "I want a cookie" face in the bottom left photo), but if she thinks you are taking too long to give her the goodie, she will make a cute little huffing noise to urge you along. Lady walks pretty well on the leash and settles down calmly next to humans she knows.

Rocky is healthy and active, a typical Springer. He is playful and enjoys meeting new people. He will lean into you for all the cuddles you want to give him. He is exuberant about exploring and going places, but he does need some leash work as he tends to pull to get to where he wants to go. Both Rocky and Lady ride well in the car, although each would like to ride shotgun if given the chance. Unfortunately, the seat isn't big enough for both of them at once!

Because they want all their people's attention, Lady and Rocky need to be the only dogs in their Forever Home. They will thrive in an environment where they will get lots of affection and where someone will be home most of the time. Their adopters will need to commit to including this wonderful pair in every aspect of family life. Rocky and Lady will enjoy going for walks, running errands with you, playing and sniffing in a secure backyard, and sleeping in the bedroom with you at night. They have lived with teenagers, so they should be fine with older kids.

Lady is spayed and Rocky is neutered. They have recently been completely vetted, and both had full dental exams and cleanings. They are up to date on all vaccinations, have tested negative for heartworms, and have been microchipped for safekeeping.

Unfortunately, we do not know a lot about this pair. We were contacted by a family member who was unable to care for them. However, we do know without a doubt that Lady and Rocky were well loved and are missing being an integral part of a family. Are you ready to double your daily quota of Springer love? If so, please have an approved adoption application on file, then contact Lady and Rocky’s case manager for more information.

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

Colt is a liver-and-white male who is approximately seven years old. Colt's current family took him in from a friend who could no longer care for him. Sadly, though, Colt isn't happy living with another dog, so they turned to ESRA to help find Colt the perfect Forever Home.

Colt loves children and cats and is as snuggly as can be. He needs to be the only dog in his home. Currently he doesn't have exposure to other dogs in public, so it is unknown how he would behave when meeting strange dogs.

Colt is house and crate trained and rides well in the car. He is neutered and up to date on all vaccinations. This sweet boy is ready to meet his Forever Family.

If you would like to meet Colt, please fill out an adoption application today.

Rocky is a five-year-old gorgeous liver-and-white male looking for his Forever Home. Health issues within his family had them turning to ESRA for help.

Rocky is a high-energy boy who needs lots of exercise, but is also as sweet and cuddly as can be. He wants more than anything to please his human and likes snuggle time on the couch if allowed. Rocky has a tendency to be the alpha, so he will need a firm, loving adoptive home that will set boundaries for him. Rocky could live with another dog as long as that dog is secure enough to stand up for themselves but won’t try to be alpha over Rocky. No cats for this boy, as his prey drive kicks into high gear when he sees them. Rocky will also need a home with older children.

Rocky is house trained, neutered and up to date on all preventative vaccinations. He prefers not to be crated. Rocky has hunting experience and is very proud to show off his skills at retrieving. The perfect home for Rocky would give him the best of both worlds where he could be a beloved family member but also have time working with his human. We think that Rocky would quickly take to agility or rally training. He also may enjoy running with his new family.

If you would like to meet Rocky, please fill out an adoption application today.

Click here to watch this very springy Springer as she hunts and explores!
Hi! My name is Georgia, and I’ve got my nose to the ground, hunting out a new Forever Home. I sure would like to be part of a family where I will be loved, cuddled, and included in all the fun stuff families do. My foster home has a great yard where I can run and run and run, and it's just full of wonderful smells. I get to hunt for lizards and gophers, and, most importantly, I get lots and lots of cuddles, belly rubs, and good food! Because of my energy level, I think it would be a good idea to take at least one obedience class so my new family and I both know how I am supposed to act. Wouldn’t you like to come meet me and give me some of those cuddles I crave?

Springer kisses in advance,
Georgia


From Georgia’s foster family: Are you ready for a happy young girl who would love to go for long walks or maybe jog with you? How about the best cuddles anyone could wish for while you watch TV? Or better yet, how about an agility class partner? If so, Georgia is the answer to your dreams! She is a loving, fun, and exuberant girl who is very anxious to belong to a family. Georgia gets along well with our resident dogs, and she enjoys being part of the pack. She loves hunting lizards and gophers and watching the birds fly overhead. Her prey drive manifests itself as intense outdoor play and exploration. As the video (linked at top) shows, every bush is an adventure, and each needs to be thoroughly inspected because it might contain something exciting! Georgia has not been tested with cats or other small animals. She truly has springs in her feet and is extremely active. A good-sized, securely fenced yard will be ideal for the safety and well-being of this energetic girl.

Georgia has been responsive to basic training in her foster home, and she shows a willingness to learn. She now knows the commands Sit and Come, and she has done well at learning No. We highly recommend that she and her new family continue her training with at least one obedience class emphasizing leash training. This will not only increase bonding, but it will also let Georgia know what is expected of her. She would be an excellent candidate for agility or nose work, and she would be a fine jogging partner. She is very quick to understand what her people want, so it won’t take her very long to learn the routines and rules of her new home.

Georgia is a healthy, happy girl who is up to date on her shots. She has been spayed and microchipped. She is completely housetrained, and she enjoys playing with soft toys when she is in the house. She sleeps on a dog bed at night.

Anyone interested in adopting Georgia must realize that in order for her to become a wonderful Forever Friend, it is absolutely necessary to include her in all phases of the family’s life. Georgia will enjoy any and all activities as long as her people are near her. If you have the time to devote to loving Georgia and room in your heart and family for an affectionate, adorable Springer, please have an approved application on file and be prepared to fall in love.

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

Click here to see Lazlo playing with a friend! Energy galore!
Lazlo loves to play, play, play! This energetic young fellow plays with all his toys, his foster parents and the tolerant girl dogs in his foster home. He even tried to play with a cat in the vet's office. He got swatted, but, oh well. He accepts warnings from the other dogs when he pushes the limits.

He is house trained and sleeps well on his doggy bed at night, but likes to get everyone going in the morning. He has charmed the humans and the dogs with his loving exuberance. Lazlo is a Velcro Springer who likes to help his foster mom as she moves around the house. He comes when called and rides well in the car, preferably in a human's lap, but he is crate trained the car. He goes willingly into his crate at home but we do not recommend a full day in the crate.

Our boy is catching up on his development and still acts like an adolescent pup. Although he has started slowing at mealtime, he eats voraciously and has done best with a puzzle bowl or a slow feeder. He would love and benefit from basic obedience classes. He needs some work on basic manners, leash walking and counter surfing. Although he would love to take hikes with his family, he is not yet trained for off leash.

Lazlo is neutered and up to date on his shots. He is still a bit underweight, but with continued good food and good exercise he should end up between thirty-five and forty pounds. No other health problems are noted.

An active family is a must for Lazlo. He would love a canine playmate and a family that has the patience and time to help him reach his potential. He needs a medium to large fenced backyard for running. He loves his toys, especially the Kong, but also likes his chew bones and pull ropes. He would like a family that will play with him!

Let us know if you think you are the right family for this lively and loving boy! Any interested family will need to come to Colorado to meet Lazlo.

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

Sweet, playful Ivy is ready for her Forever Home. This beautiful-looking Springer girl most likely has a dash of something else in her genes, but her personality is all Springer. Ivy is a Velcro Springer to the fullest. She is completely into her people, likes to know where they are all the time and happily follows you from room to room. When it is snuggle time on the couch, she loves to gently place her paw on her person.

Ivy may be a youngster, but she is smart beyond her years. Ivy would blossom and thrive in obedience, agility or a nose work class. She would love the time spent with her humans and it would provide a wonderful way to bond with each other. Ivy is well behaved in the house, has great leash manners on her daily walks and rarely turns down an opportunity to kick her heels up with another playful pup. She is also quite content to relax with her family at the end of the day. As easy going as she is, Ivy would prefer not to be crated and to live in a home without a cat. Ivy has a favorite bed of her own but enjoys the comfort and safety of sleeping with her humans from time to time.

Ivy's perfect home would have people who are home more than they are gone, are okay with snuggle time on the couch or bed, provide her with daily walks to explore the outdoors, contains no felines and has another pup to run and play with.

If you are approved to adopt and are able to meet this little "lovebug" in person, please contact us.

Interested in Schecky and Emma? Then read about bonded pairs and the benefits of adopting these special best friends.
Meet Schecky and Emma, our new senior bonded pair! Emma and Schecky have been constant companions since Schecky was a puppy. Schecky, our English Springer Spaniel and Emma, a German Shorthaired Pointer, love to play together and find comfort in each other's companionship. While they are bonded, they are comfortable being in separate rooms.

Both dogs are affectionate and loving and seek their people for attention, without being unduly clingy. Both dogs like to cuddle, especially Schecky who loves to curl up on the sofa with his people. Given the opportunity, they would both be happy to snuggle in bed and keep you warm!

Schecky and Emma have great house manners, are trained to Sit, Come and Stay, are doggy-door trained and settle quickly in the house. They are great with other dogs, ignore the cats and are good with small children. Emma has been known to occasionally counter surf. They both like to play with and carry small, soft toys around the house. Emma likes to warm up in front of the fire and peacefully watch the flames.

Both dogs are healthy for their ages. Emma has a small fatty tumor above her left eye for which her vet recommends no treatment. Schecky has some arthritis in his hips and occasionally will limp on his right rear leg. We manage that with an occasional anti- inflammatory pill and regular joint supplements.

These loving dogs would make a wonderful addition to any family looking for loyal, loving companions who enjoy occasional playful romps. If you think you are the right family for this lovely pair, please let us know!

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

Hi! My name is Buddy, and I am looking for a new Forever Home. I hope it's one with a large yard and either another dog or some children to play with. I am a typical Springer who enjoys being with people of all ages. There are lots of other Springers at my foster home, and I enjoy hanging out with them. When I first came here, I was very scared, and I shied away from everything. Now, though, there is something new to learn everyday, and that is lots of fun! I love belly rubs and hugs, I enjoy being brushed, I think car rides are nice, and I really, really like playing with balls and other toys that I can chase. I must admit, though, that I very rarely bring back what you throw for me.

If you think I could be your new snuggle Buddy, please contact my foster mom. I’ll be waiting at the gate to meet you!

Springer kisses,
Buddy


From Buddy's foster mom: Buddy is so eager to please! He is a gentle soul with a true Springer spirit. He is an extremely loving and well-mannered boy. Like most Springers, he is active, so he needs a large, securely fenced yard to play in. He would dearly love a family with older children to be friends with. He is very calm in the house, and he loves to find comfy places to take his naps. He is housetrained and knows basic commands such as Sit, Stay, Wait, Come, and Down. In spite of this, it would be beneficial for Buddy and his new family to participate in at least one obedience class. Buddy is a shy and slightly submissive boy. An obedience class will increase his self-confidence and let him know what is expected of him in his new Forever Home. Buddy will thrive in a household with another non-alpha dog for companionship. However, if someone is home most of the time, he will be just fine as an only dog. He is up to date on all his shots, is microchipped and heartworm negative, and has been neutered.

Anyone interested in giving Buddy his new Forever Home must realize that in order for him to become a wonderful companion, it is absolutely necessary to include him in all phases of the family’s life. Buddy will enjoy any and all activities as long as his people are near him. If this loving and adorable Springer tugs at your heart, please have an approved application on file and then contact us at the email address below to meet your new best friend.

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

I'd like to come in, please!

Age:10 years
Gender:Male
Color:Liver & White
Weight:57 lbs
Variety:Bench
From Niles’s foster dad: It is my pleasure to introduce our newest foster, Niles. He is a gentle soul who was relinquished to us by his owner, to whom we are grateful. At first glance, Niles might look pretty hefty, but on further observation, that's not the case. He is a solid, barrel-chested boy who needs to lose no more than five pounds. His coat, when grown out, will be beautiful as he has nice markings.


At first, this poor boy was very timid and flinched/cowered if anyone went to pet him. His tail drooped down and never wagged. His eyes were very sad and soulful looking. The environment was all new to him, and he was scared to death. We never knew what to expect of his behavior in the first days, but to our surprise, Niles has blossomed. His tail now wags at warp speed! He took over my recliner, and he appears to be fully housetrained. His eyes now sparkle and gleam with delight. He has several dog beds he has claimed now. One favorite is in the family room where we all gather in the evening, and another one is next to our bed. Niles sleeps through the night until we wake him up. He is a diamond in the rough for sure. His lucky adopter is going to hit the jackpot!


Niles was an outside yard dog who was only allowed into the garage during rainy weather. He slept on a chair in the backyard and had no playmates. Niles is now an inside dog who does not like to be outside without his people. If we put him out alone, he stands at the door and wants in. But even with his obvious attachment to humans, he does not show any signs of separation anxiety when we leave.


We vetted Niles soon after his arrival, and he is now up to date on all his inoculations. He tested negative for heartworm, and he is now on a monthly heartworm preventive. Unfortunately, his neutering procedure was very difficult. One of his testicles had never descended, and it was located deeply within his groin area with muscle and fatty tissue surrounding it completely. While Niles was under anesthesia, he had a dental cleaning done as well as eight skin tags removed from various places on his body including eyelid, lips, and muzzle. A small growth was also removed from his head, his nails were clipped, and his ears were flushed. He is now in fine shape and is ready to find the perfect Forever Family he so deserves.


Niles is a very laidback, happy dog with a tail that never stops wagging. He knows Sit and Shake (with both paws). He needs a little training on his leash skills. He is definitely a Velcro Springer. He follows us wherever we go, room to room, and he comes when he is called. He gets along with our three dogs, male and female, and he ignores our cats. His appetite is ravenous, even if he's already eaten. He has learned what treats and cookies are. He never, ever wants to miss a meal! Counter surfing is not out of the question, so his new family needs to be alert. He doesn't have a mean bone in his body. He is quiet in the car and usually lies down on the floor. Most importantly, although Niles is ten years old, he still has that Spring(er) in his step. To be honest, we have never heard him bark, but he did cry the night after surgery. We cried with him--it was heartbreaking. But he’s all better now, and everybody is happy.

Niles had his sutures removed on February 20. We hope he'll be able to meet his new family soon. Is that family yours? He would be perfect for a retired person or couple, but all applicants will be considered because we want to make sure we find just the right match for this wonderful boy. If you want a gentle companion who will love you unconditionally, and if you have been pre-approved to adopt, then contact his foster parents at the email address below.

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

Meet our beautiful girl, Molly. This sweetie came to ESRA as an owner surrender. Molly lived the first year of her life as an indoor dog. Then Molly had puppies. The decision was made that Molly and two of the puppies would be outside dogs. The puppies took outside life in stride. But Molly, who had known life as an inside girl, was not happy.

Molly is a very sweet, loving girl who craves attention from her humans. She is loving life in her foster home and never wants to be an outside dog again. Molly is very exuberant and enthusiastic about life and needs someone who will give her structure so she can reach her full potential. She is smart and wants to please and would benefit from an obedience class or two. She pulls on the leash, as she had never been leash walked. Her foster family is working with her walking skills using a gentle leader. She is improving but will need continued work on her leash manners.

She learned the dog door quickly. At first when she went outside, she would want to come back in immediately. But now she realizes that she can stay out for as long as she wants and have access to the inside when she is ready.

Molly loves her long daily walks and has shed a few pounds since coming into our care. She loves running in a fenced-in park and has good recall unless she sees a bird. She is very food motivated and is a counter surfer and a checker of cabinets. She loves to go for car rides. She has only been crated on her initial transport so it is unknown whether she would do well being in a crate. She is trustworthy in the house when left alone. Her favorite things are loving her humans, giving gentle kisses and snuggling on the couch.

Because Molly wants all of her humans' attention, we think she would do best as an only dog. A confident dog who would not mind if she got most of the attention could be a consideration. Molly is requesting that her new family be okay with her being on the furniture and sleeping in bed with them. She would do best with a family that is home most of the time. She is untested with cats, ignores most other dogs and loves people of all ages. She is healthy, up to date on all her shots, spayed and microchipped. And since she has lived in Mexico, she is bilingual!

If you have the time to give Molly the attention and love her as much as she will love you, she might just be your princess.

Charlie is an adorable, small Springer-Cocker mix. He is quite young and will require some dedication to training and sticking with a routine. Charlie really likes his crate, so that should help a lot. He is mastering the Gentle Leader and is getting quicker with Sit. Like any Springer, he loves being with his people. Cuddling is his specialty. With some love and a little training, this sweetie pie is going to charm your socks off!

Charlie loves his toys and especially likes to chase thrown toys -- all day, every day. He’s a super happy boy, as his tail wags constantly. Even more than his toys, Charlie loves his walks. There are never too many walks in a day for him. He would be an awesome buddy for anyone who likes to walk, jog or hike. He’s a joy on the leash and enjoys dabbling in exploration along the way. He has a soft mouth with his toys and will drop them on request, but only so you can throw them for him again with his billy-goat leaping abilities. He may even enjoy agility training. His foster mom says: He’s so fun to watch. I just shake my head and smile.

This charming boy is current on his vaccines, neutered, microchipped and ready to go! He was heartworm positive when he first came to ESRA, but has gone through treatment and is doing very well.

Charlie would prefer not to have to share your love and attention with another dog or cat. However, in return, he will shower you with love and affection. He is great around most people, but small children may make him anxious.

If you’re looking for a smart, incredibly lovable companion in a small package, then charming Charlie may be just the guy for you.

Please meet Gunner. He is a sweet, gentle soul of an English Springer Spaniel. We cannot say enough nice things about Gunner -- there are so many! He comes from a good, loving home. Unfortunately, one of his owners has a military transfer to another part of the country, and the family cannot take Gunner with them. They contacted us for assistance, and we are honored to be able to help Gunner and his family.

This fine gentleman has those classic big-boy Springer looks that we all love. Gunner is not overweight; he's just sturdy. He is a nice height, and he is quite handsome. Gunner has excellent house manners and is perfecly housetrained. He is an indoor dog, of course. He likes being with his family, and he enjoys having indoor/outdoor privileges with the doggie door. He prefers to stay indoors when his owners run their errands, and he is fine on his own at those times.

Gunner likes his walks on the local hiking trails, and he has the good fortune of also being able to have quality time at the beach for strolls at sunset. Gunner's new family should be one that enjoys taking walks with their dog, as this is what Gunner needs and thrives on. With that said, he is mellow in the house, very calm and relaxed as he lies around comfortably. When a stranger comes to the house, Gunner will bark to alert when the person is at the door. After a proper introduction, Gunner welcomes the person into his home and will quietly enjoy being petted by his new friend.

For the first two years of his life, Gunner lived with a small dog. Since then, he has been the only dog in the house. However, his extended family members come and go with their assorted dogs, and Gunner is wonderful when they visit. He has also met an ESRA volunteer's dogs. He was friendly with them all, and he went for a walk with one of them and was a great walking partner.

Gunner comes from a large family of people. There are nine grandchildren of all ages, toddlers and up, that visit him regularly. He is very gentle with all the children. This is a love of a dog, and his new Forever Family will be very lucky to have him. So if you think that your family would be a good match for Gunner, please contact his case manager right away at the email address below!

Hi, my name is Stella! I am an energetic three-year-old bench bred Springer that loves to play, chase birds and squirrels and chill out on my Mommy's or Daddy's lap after a busy day. I weigh thirty-eight pounds and have beautiful, curly, liver and white hair. I am hoping to find a family that can teach me the ropes and give me lots of love and exercise.

Let me tell you a bit about myself. I was born on March 21, 2015. In September, 2017 I badly broke one of my rear legs and it was surgically repaired the next day. I re-fractured the leg a few days later and my broken leg then had to be amputated. That has not slowed me down one bit, as I healed up with no more troubles and get around without restrictions. I love going on a long walk every morning with my foster dad.

I am happy to say that my last family did take good care of me while I was with them, as I am very healthy without any doggie diseases or parasites. I am up to date on all of my vaccinations. My foster parents are pleased that I take care of all of my business outdoors and that I sleep through the night in my crate without making a peep. I love to play with my Springer stepbrother and sisters and I haven't met another person I don't like.

My foster parents tell me I am precious and that I should find a good Forever Home in no time at all. I don't want to be picky, but my perfect home would have a big backyard to play in with another dog or two with parents who are very active.

Might that be you?

Springer kisses,
Stella

Please meet beautiful Stella! We are most delighted to have this young, gorgeous, and super-sweet Springer girl in our program and to announce that she is now available for adoption.

Stella came to ESRA the first week of January, so she has now been in foster care for approximately four weeks. We do not know much about her early life, but we believe that she led a very sheltered existence without much exposure to the world beyond her fenced yard. When we got Stella, everything was new to her, and it all sparked much curiosity! She has blossomed under our care. She takes daily walks, has many doggie playmates, and is adjusting quite well to all of the new folks she meets and the daily experiences she has. We were told that she was not housetrained as she was not allowed in the house. Despite that, she succeeded at a rapid clip and is now fully trained. She has had only one accident in her foster home. This is a smart little Springer girl, and she makes us so proud. Stella sleeps through the night, and she knows how to use the doggie door. Stella is good with the commands Sit and Stay. She trains eagerly, wants to please, and quickly catches on.

Stella is a cuddle bug with children, with adults, and with other dogs. She loves to climb into your lap and cuddle; she loves to climb into the chair and cuddle with her foster dog friends; she loves to sleep on the bed with her foster mom and cuddle, cuddle, cuddle! She is just one of the sweetest Springers. She desires the companionship of humans and other dogs. She is a Velcro Springer for sure.

We have gotten to know Stella well. She has been with a young Springer at her foster home, and it is obvious that she needs a playmate. Her Forever home should have another young dog for Stella to play with, so this will be a necessary condition of adoption. Stella would be great with a family that includes kids, but we recommend children aged five and above. Her behavior with cats is unknown.

ESRA has invested much in Stella's veterinary care. She is up to date on shots and has been spayed. She has been heartworm tested, and we had her teeth cleaned. Other customary testing has also been performed on Stella. She is healthy and is currently living comfortably in a nice warm home with a loving foster family, but of course she desires a Forever Home of her very own. If your family might be the perfect fit for this lovely girl, please contact her foster mom at the email address below right away!

Interested in William and Caroline? Then read about bonded pairs and the benefits of adopting these special best friends.
Introducing ESRA royalty: Prince William and Princess Caroline!

Look at these beauties! Caroline is a gorgeous liver-and-white tri-colored Springer girl who is on the smaller size. William appears to be a black-and-white Springer, but he does have subtle tan points when you look closely. These siblings are sweet, happy, well-adjusted young Springers. They are full of life, full of energy, and overflowing with love to offer a wonderful Springer family. They are very social and friendly with all people and dogs.

William and Caroline adore each other and are extremely close. Caroline is quick as a fox and quite the huntress -- she could chase squirrels for hours! William is more laid back, usually by your side, and will run to give you kisses even at the whisper of his name. They love their toys and enjoy the car.

They would be happiest in a home where they are not left alone for long hours. They are exuberant and playful and need a great yard where they can bound around and burn off youthful Springer energy. They would love playtime in the yard, lots of room to stretch their legs and long daily walks or jogs. They have matured enough that they can be left to roam the house while left alone. They have been pampered and spoiled, accustomed to cuddling on the couch and sleeping in the bed. We hope to find a home where they can do the same. A home with no cats is recommended. This adorable pair will need to learn basic obedience training and leash skills. The adopting family must commit to this. Both pups have lovely dispositions. They are best suited for older children given their enthusiasm.

Both are healthy, current on vaccinations, tested negative for heartworms and are microchipped for safekeeping.

If you are the perfect home for our prince and princess, we look forward to hearing from you.

We estimate this gorgeous girl Rosie to be about four years old. This black-and-white, sweet, loving girl was found as a stray and ended up in a shelter. Luckily ESRA came along to spring her and help find her Forever Home.

Rosie is very shy with strangers, but once she gets to know you she is very loving. Rosie is afraid of loud noises and will urinate submissively when nervous or forced to do something (like sit for a photograph) that she is unsure of. The family that adopts Rosie will need to understand her shyness and continue to work slowly with her to gain more confidence. Attending an obedience class with Rosie would be a good bonding experience and possibly also help with her confidence.

Rosie came to the shelter intact and is now spayed. She was not house trained but is learning with the help of her foster family. Rosie will need continued positive voice training to be fully house trained. Rosie is up to date on all vaccinations, walks well on a leash, gets along well with other dogs and cats and loves her people. Rosie is comfortable in a crate and will often choose to sleep in it during the day. Rosie loves to play in the snow and go for walks, but she is currently out of shape and needs to build up to longer walks.

Her foster parents have fallen in love with her and feel she will flourish with continued positive voice training to help her gain her confidence. Rosie would do best in a calm household with another friendly, playful and outgoing dog to help her explore the world. Because of Rosie's shyness, her foster family may require that her adoptive family meet with her a few times so that she can get to know you before moving. This sweet, gentle, lovable girl will be worth the effort.

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

Age:3 years

Liam is ready for adoption! Despite his past, he is the sweetest, cutest and happiest Springer boy and loaded with Springer energy. When he arrived, he weighed a mere thirty-two pounds and was completely emaciated due to a severe intestinal parasite infestation. His condition was absolutely heartbreaking.

We had to put fifteen pounds on him before we could neuter him. Once he recovered, he then had to endure heartworm treatment. His road to recovery has been long and tough. He is finally a healthy forty-seven pounds with a gorgeous, dark rich and thick shiny coat -- a far cry from what he was when he came into our program.

Liam is amazing with other dogs. He would very much enjoy a young playmate in his Forever Home. He is a bit of a "diamond in the rough" with the potential to be the most wonderful family member. He has come such a long way thus far, but he will require obedience training to make him a well-behaved member of the family. He is housetrained and crate trained. He would be great with older children. He is unknown with cats.

Liam needs LOTS of time and room to run in a safe and enclosed yard. Of course, if we could find him a home with some property, that would be ideal. We would like to find him a stay-at-home or work-at-home family where he can enjoy a tremendous amount of love and attention. He's an excellent passenger in the car and is always up for an adventure. He is very well-socialized with everyone, so you can take him anywhere.

Liam is now healthy and very strong. He is heartworm free, has no more parasites, current on his vaccinations, neutered and microchipped for safekeeping.

If you're ready for a high-energy pup and will commit to working with him, please contact his Case Manager.

PLEASE NOTE: Because we expect that many people will be interested in Tucker, We will be considering ONLY those applicants who have a current APPROVED application on file with us. As noted below, Tucker's new home MUST include at least one other young dog. Anyone interested in Tucker must be willing to bring the entire family, including their current dogs, to meet him.
Hi, everyone! my name is Tucker. I am a black-and-white tricolored Springer who just turned four months old, and people tell me that I'm very handsome. I do not remember much about my life before my foster family took me in, but I am so glad they did! I like to spend my days eating, playing, and sleeping in a comfy spot on the floor or in my dog bed (or wherever I may land when I've worn myself out). I get three meals a day here, and the food is pretty good. And sometimes, when I am a really good boy, I get treats!

I spend a lot of time romping with my best friend here. Her name is Charlotte, and she is a bit older and bigger than me, but I give her a good run. I like to steal bones and toys from her so that she will chase me! Besides Charlotte, there are three other Springers here, and I get along with them all. I must say that they have been very patient with my puppy antics. I really like the human family here, too. They spend a lot of time following me around with a camera, and they love to tell me how funny I am. I like to entertain them! I also like to follow them around as they go about their day.

I am a very happy and smart boy. I know that I won't be here much longer, and I also know that I can trust my foster family to find me the perfect new Forever Home. I sure hope my new home has another puppy for me to play with, along with very active human parents who will teach me how to be the best Springer ever. Could your family be the one?

Love and puppy kisses,
Tucker


From Tucker’s foster mom: Tucker is a happy, sweet, and active Springer puppy who is just figuring out the world. He is housetrained and uses two doggy doors to get out to the yard whenever he needs to. He uses his crate during the day to hang out in when we have to be away. He will sleep in his crate at night next to our bed, but he would really prefer to cuddle with us. Tucker gets along fine with all four of the resident Springers as well as the cat.

Tucker has been in his foster home for about six weeks now, and he has learned a great deal. As well as being housetrained and crate trained, he knows the commands Sit, Wait, and Down. He is working on his leash skills. As all puppies do, Tucker needs to attend at least one obedience class and be given consistent follow-through by his new family. Obedience classes will let Tucker know what is expected of him and who is in charge, and they will provide the invaluable socialization skills that all puppies need.

Tucker is a very high-energy boy, so he will need lots of playtime with at least one young dog in his new home. Older children for him to love and interact with would be an added bonus.

Tucker has just been neutered, is up to date on his vaccinations, is microchipped, and has tested negative for heartworm. He is a happy, healthy, energetic Springer puppy looking for the perfect family. Tucker’s ideal family is one that will help him continue his journey to becoming a great Springer. If you meet the REQUIREMENTS noted at the top of this listing, please contact his case manager at the email address below.

Age:2 years

Georgie is a one-of-a-kind Springer with sparkling hazel eyes. He may be a little guy, but he has a giant heart.

He loves, loves, loves people. Once he gets to know you, he wants you to hug and cuddle on him, especially children. Georgie is a bit shy at first and takes time to warm up, but this cuddlebug is completely worth the wait.

Georgie wasn’t well socialized early in life, but in his foster family he has spent time out in the big wide world going to stores and parks and meeting new friends. Georgie is now learning that strangers are just future best friends. Georgie will never leave your side once he knows you’re his person. His big hazel eyes are full of love and trust, looking very serious, which is deceptive because he is so goofy and fun-loving.

Although young, he has quickly learned to read the temperature of the room and will settle down quickly for nap when appropriate. He will also be keen to go for a romp when you’re ready, though! Short bursts of activity, like tug of war, runs around the yard, or chasing a ball seem to satisfy his exercise needs. The perfect home for Georgie is one where he has some company most of the time and another dog to hang out with. He loves children and would be a great family dog. He’s also great with cats and other dogs, and will try to entice even the grumpiest of pups into a romp with him in the yard. Although crate trained, he would love to share a bed with you!

This beautiful boy is happy, healthy, and ready for his new home. He’s microchipped, neutered and current on all his vaccines.

Georgie is a total sweetheart that loves easily and is easy to love. Be warned, once he looks into your eyes, you've likely got yourself a dog. If you're ready, come meet him!

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 Georgie.

Hello, Peyton is my name! I’m told I was named after a very nice volunteer who rescued me from the shelter.  That was a scary place and I never want to go back there!  Now I’m looking for a Forever Home where I can feel safe and secure.  

I am a young, energetic boy who loves to play and spend time with my people. My foster mom says I’m a real sweetheart and I LOVE to sit in your lap. I’m sad when you leave and I’m always glad to see you upon your return home.  

I enjoy going for walks and I don’t pull on the leash; however, my foster mom says I need to walk beside her instead of in front of her.  I can’t help it!  Walks are very exciting!  I also love my toys and can be a little protective sometimes. I’m friendly around other dogs, but I’m not happy about sharing my toys. 

I guess I need to work on my manners a little and learn some self-control. I get excited easily, but I respond well to positive reinforcement and especially treats! I will sit, lie down and trade for a treat.  I need my Forever Family to continue this behavior modification, as they say I am a work in progress.  I think I am best suited for an adult home where I can be the center of attention.  

I am completely house trained and I learned how to use the doggy door.  I love my crate and immediately go in when asked. 

If you think you are ready to help me become an awesome adult dog, please contact my foster mom.  She says I’m an amazing pup and I’m on my way to being your forever best friend!

xxoo,
Peyton


Peyton is neutered, current on vaccinations, microchipped and in good health.  He will need to complete heartworm treatment at ESRA’s expense in a foster-to-adopt home.

My name is Mari! I am a petite, field-bred pup who is about twelve months old. I am hoping to find a Forever Family that can teach me the ropes and give me lots of love and exercise.

Let me tell you a bit about myself. I was surrendered to a local shelter by my original family who decided I needed more than they could give. I am happy to say that they took good care of me while I was with them, as I am very healthy without any doggie diseases or parasites. I am up to date on all of my vaccinations and I will be spayed very soon.

My foster parents have taught me how to take care of my business outdoors (at least most of the time!). I love to play with their other Springer children. I haven’t met another dog or person I don’t like, although I haven’t met a cat as of yet. I sleep all night in my very own crate in my foster parents’ bedroom without making a peep. I am trying to learn not to counter surf, jump on people who come to visit and how to walk on a leash. I still have some work to do in those departments, though.

My foster parents tell me I am precious and that I should find a wonderful Forever Home in no time at all! I don’t want to be picky, but my perfect home would have a big backyard to play in with another dog or two. I need parents who are very active and willing to take the time to help me learn how to be a good dog all of the time. Might that be you?

Let me know - I'm waiting!
Mari

Interested in Max and Abbey? Then read about bonded pairs and the benefits of adopting these special best friends.
Max and Abbey are seven years old, black and white, and very nice dogs. They aren’t litter mates, but have been together since they were pups. Abbey is six months older. Max gets anxious when Abbey isn’t around. He is a goofy boy who loves to run outside and fetch his ball. Abbey is calmer, although she enjoys her Frisbee.

These two have received good care, but their owner is forced to relinquish them because of a grandchild with severe allergies.

Max and Abbey are house trained and use a dog door. They are great with children and other dogs, but they don’t get along with cats. They are used to sleeping with their humans. Max has had allergies and ear infections in the past, but since switching his food to salmon and pea he is doing well.

The ideal Forever Home for Max and Abbey is one with an active family and a decent-sized yard that will keep these two beauties together.

If you are interested in giving them a true Forever Home, please contact their coordinator.

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