Age:7 years

Mason is our sweet, snuggly, silly Springer who is a delight to have around. He loves his toys and will make you laugh when he carries a favorite around while barking and "talking" with them in his mouth. He enjoys a game of ball and will bring the ball back to you for another throw.

Mason loves his walks and keeps up with his younger foster sibling. He can be trusted off leash in an appropriate setting as he has excellent recall and comes trotting right back to you. However, he does have a prey drive and must always be on leash when encountering critters or birds.

Mason takes a daily joint supplement and fish oil. He has lost a few pounds since coming into ESRA's care with his daily walks and his green bean snacks!

This boy is so smart and knows several commands including Sit, Stay, Down, Come, and High Five. He is very attentive and obedient and really wants to please you. He can be overwhelmed when meeting new dogs if they rush up to him. But if they approach slowly and calmly, he knows they are friendly and takes his cue from them to also be friendly. He would be fine if there was another calm, confident dog in his new home if that dog was okay with Mason being the boss. He has recently started playing tug of war with his foster sibling. He does well with dog-savvy children over the age of eight that are gentle with him.

Mason really needs a dog door because he thrives on the freedom it gives him to go from the house to the yard. He will go in his crate but does not like to be left in there for over an hour. He is trustworthy when left alone in the house. Mason really wants to be with you as much as possible, though. Therefore, we feel Mason would do best with someone that is retired or that works from home. He is a gentleman in the car and would happily go with you whenever possible.

If you want a loyal, devoted, loving best friend, then Mason may be your guy. Mason loves deeply and is looking for and deserves someone to return that love.

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

Lance and a buddy

ESRA#:2017-395CA
Status: Adopted
Date:2017-11-15
  
Age:5 years
Gender:Male
Color:Liver & White
Weight:50 lbs
Variety:Bench
We are pleased to introduce Lance, our current foster. He was originally adopted from a local shelter in 2015. Recently, due to unforeseen circumstances, his family had to make the very difficult decision to relinquish Lance to ESRA. Lance's family gave him a glowing report when he was picked up, and their evaluation has certainly proved to be spot on.

Lance has turned out to be a dream foster, and he exhibits no bad habits. He is housetrained and crate trained, and he knows basic commands. He enjoys giving high fives, will willingly shake with both paws, and will roll over. He also has terrific recall. Lance gets along great with his foster siblings--canine and feline, large and small. He will engage in play and is not hesitant about letting another dog know when he has had enough. This guy is a very laidback Springer who is a "mama's boy" and is his foster mom's shadow. Lance loves people of all ages, and it is our opinion that he would make a great therapy dog if his Forever Family is interested in pursuing this idea.

His relinquishing family mentioned that Lance had suffered severe separation anxiety when they first brought him home from the shelter. They worked diligently to help him overcome this. While this behavior has not surfaced in his foster home, Lance's new adoptive family needs to be aware of this possibility and be willing to work with him to help him become comfortable in his Forever Home.

In our opinion, Lance will do best in an environment where someone is home most of the time. He would enjoy the companionship of another animal in the household who has a temperament and activity level similar to his. Lance would do equally well as the one and only pet as long as he is not left alone for long periods of time.

If you feel that you can give this terrific boy the love and attention he needs, please contact his foster family. We anticipate that Lance will be adopted quickly, so please make sure you have an approved adoption application on file before contacting us.

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

Kalea is a lovely little lady who has quietly blossomed in foster care. She came to us a bit anxious and timid, but has quickly moved past her initial reservations and decided that life is fun with her foster family!

Kalea is a rather adaptable girl. She is content to keep company with her older foster brothers, but when a one-year-old border collie mix visits, she has no trouble engaging in and keeping up with the play. She lived comfortably in a home with a cat.

She has done well with all family members, including younger children. Kalea loves to be with her people and could be called a Velcro Springer. She is sweet and snuggly. She has good house manners, learned the doggy door quickly and sleeps quietly at night. There has been no need to crate Kalea, as she is responsible when left in the house.

This girl loves her walks and playing outside. She is quite interested in the rabbits along the way and could benefit from additional leash training. Kalea is in good health, but is working on adding a couple of pounds. She is current on her vaccinations and has been spayed.

Kalea would do well in a home with adults, children, dogs and or a cat. She is probably not a good candidate for a noisy, boisterous household, but very much likes being part of the family and household activities.

Does she sound like the dog for your family? If so, please let us know!

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

Age:6 years
Gender:Male

Weight:50 lbs
Variety:Bench
Vinnie was adopted as a puppy from ESRA and, sadly, was recently returned due to life changes for his family. Somewhere along life’s path, Vin became somewhat insecure and uncertain when meeting new people and in some life situations, but a lot of the little puppy we knew is still evident in this happy guy.  He does warm up quickly to folks if they allow him to get to know them at his own pace.  

Vinnie is incredibly smart and will make you proud of how he has mastered his obedience commands.  Vin comes when called, sits readily when asked, is house trained and walks pretty well on the leash -- he is just so excited to be out and about.  He loves to go for walks and hikes and take in all the sights and smells of his surroundings.  Vinnie is a good traveler in the car and loves to make nose marks on the windows as you go down the road.  Vinnie does get along well with other dogs, but he will not be the best dog for a home with cats.   

Vinnie has made great strides on feeling more confident in himself and his surroundings.  Because of his insecurities from time to time, he does attach himself to one person.  When he feels uncertain about something, he goes to the person and tries to keep others away.   In the past couple of years, we believe life had become increasingly scary for Vinnie.  He will need help from his people as he continues to relearn how to make himself feel safe with a loving family.   This may sound like an undertaking, but Vinnie is a sweet, loving boy at heart.  Counter conditioning and desensitization training has been working well in helping with his insecurities and Vinnie enjoys all the attention and praise (and yummy treats!) for a job well done.   

Vinnie is a sweet, loyal and loving companion who strives to please and do what makes his people happy.  Vinnie would like a family that is home more than they are gone and without small children.  If you are interested in meeting Vinnie, please plan a couple of visits due to Vinnie’s need to take things slowly when he first meets people.

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

Interested in Hubbard and Holly? Then read about bonded pairs and the benefits of adopting these special best friends.
Meet Hubbard and Holly, inseparable and closely bonded siblings.  Due to a change in living situation, these darling pups were entrusted to our care to make certain they found a wonderful family and home where they would be cherished.

Hubbard and Holly are gorgeous, outgoing, so loving and simply delightful!  They are very well trained and well socialized, housetrained and they enjoy the car.  They have been living with children the last few months and doing very well.  They will require plenty of daily exercise, a good-sized yard, and they would really enjoy a pool!

Both dogs are strong and healthy.  They're current on shots, tested negative for heartworms and both are microchipped.

Hubbard does have a tendency to be protective of his sister toward other dogs and becomes assertive.  Hubbard and Holly need to be the only two dogs in the household and not have frequent four-legged visitors.

It's easy to fall in love with these darlings.  Please email their Case Manager if you are interested in providing this bonded pair with a dream life!

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.

Meet our stunning supermodel, Bella Marie!  Hard to take your eyes off that gorgeous face of hers!  Not only is she drop-dead gorgeous, she is one very cool Springer girl!

Bella is a very, very young nine years old -- she is lean, very athletic and in amazing shape.  She loves to run, chase squirrels up trees, retrieve her tennis ball, swim and anything else a field girl would enjoy.  In the house, she is the world's sweetest snuggle bug, her head -- or more likely her entire body -- on your lap.  She loves sleeping in her foster mom's bed at night.

Bella has been the loveliest of guests.  She is beyond perfect with all other dogs, submissive and non-confrontational to all.  She is also known to be good with cats.  There's nothing that Bella enjoys more than playing fetch with her tennis ball.  In fact, she is obsessed with it!  She will chase down her ball for hours, will bring it back and drop it in front of you, and will leap four feet and catch it mid-air.  She is absolutely amazing!  When play time is over, the ball MUST be put out of sight.

We've almost gotten her severe ear and urinary tract infections behind us.  Because of her history with ongoing painful ear infections, Bella arrived very leery of us approaching her ears.  After some work, she is far more comfortable with her ears being handled.

Bella is spayed, current on all vaccinations and tested negative for heartworms. She is on monthly heartworm and flea prevention and she is microchipped.  Her teeth have also been cleaned.

We would love to find a home for Bella where her family has lots of time for her.  She would love lots of outdoor activities where she can truly be a Springer girl, having room to run, nice long daily walks, perhaps a swimming area, and of course all the love in the world.  Please email her foster family if you can give Bella all that she deserves.

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.

THINKING ABOUT BRINGING A SENIOR SPRINGER INTO YOUR FAMILY? Read why rescuing Senior Springers is a top priority for ESRA.
Bambi is an amazing Springer mix. She is a cancer survivor and loving life. Bambi has been through a great deal of chemotherapy on her hind leg. She dealt with all her treatments with grace and a sense of humor. However, cancer kept rearing its ugly head. Bambi's team of oncologists all agreed that the removal of her leg was her best option to be cancer free. With three legs, Bambi is in full remission and there is only a ten percent chance her cancer will ever come back.

When Bambi arrived home from her surgery, she picked up where she had left off, running around the back yard and making sure her foster mom is happy.

Bambi continues to be a spunky, affectionate little girl. Three legs will not slow her down a bit.

Bambi is house trained and knows how to use the dog door. She is good in the house and requires fluffy beds to lie upon. However, her favorite place is snuggling with her people.

Bambi knows a lot of tricks. She knows Watch Me, Sit, Shake, Down, Fetch (which sometimes includes Return) and Roll Over. She has graduated from obedience school. Bambi is smart and would like to learn more.

Bambi rides well in the car and walks great on a leash. Walks as a tripod are very important, as Bambi loves to be social.

Bambi deserves to find her Forever Home. Is Bambi the special girl you've been searching for?

Meet our fabulous Cisco! He is a beauty -- tall, leggy, lean and majestic. Always wearing a smile, he loves life. He is an exuberant and stunning athlete; he prances with the most beautiful gait. We believe he is likely a mix of field-bred Springer, English Setter and Brittany. He is of excellent temperament and a wonderfully sociable and outgoing boy!

His favorite pastimes are "hunting" in the backyard. Sometimes we wonder how he doesn't run into anything as his head and eyes are always looking up in the trees for critters. He loves his stuffed toys and is always toting one in his mouth around the house. He would make the most phenomenal companion with an "outdoorsman"— a best buddy and sidekick for running, hiking and hunting. He is also a loving, affectionate boy who cannot get enough of your attention. 

He has come such a long way in foster care but his Forever Family will need to continue with his training and leash skills. He is housetrained and crate trained but still a young dog who can get into trouble. He is best suited for older children given his size and exuberance. He is not a good candidate for a home with cats. He gets along famously with other dogs but preferably he will be placed with a female dog or as an only dog.

Cisco is very healthy, neutered, current on all his vaccinations and microchipped. We are, though, still trying to add a bit of weight on him.

Cisco will be a dream dog for the right owner. Please reach out to his Case Manager if Cisco appears to be a perfect match for you.

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.

Be still my heart!!!  Meet baby Bertie, born blind.  Despite his "disability", Bertie is 100 percent a typical Springer pup.  He is as happy as can be, very well adjusted. exuberant, mischievous and downright naughty at times!

The veterinary ophthalmologist diagnosed Bertie with Retinal Dysplasia resulting in detached retinas in both eyes.  There are no medications nor surgical procedures to correct this.  He is not in any pain.  It is recommended he return in four months for a follow up visit, but likely he will not need any further visits going forward.

Bertie maneuvers about extraordinarily well.  Most of the time it's easy to forget that he is, in fact, blind.  He will need a special home with patience and a commitment to training.  There are many online resources to assist in raising a blind dog.  There must be a companion dog in the household.  Bertie is very reliant on his fellow foster dogs in the house, as he is always looking to them for guidance.  He feels most comfortable and safe when he feels their fur up against his body. His buddy will also need to be playful, as well as need to be very tolerant of his puppy antics.  His family needs to provide him with a very safe environment and yard that he can easily and quickly learn the lay of the land allowing him to lead a normal Springer life.

Bertie does pretty well with his crate training – he will initially bark for a few moments and then settle in.  His housetraining is coming along but will still need further and continued training and praise.  Bertie loves ALL dogs.

Bertie has completed all his puppy shots, has been neutered and has been microchipped for safekeeping.   

Bertie is ready and waiting to start his new life.  Please email his foster mom if you feel you are the perfect family for his needs.

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

Due to this puppy’s age, all out-of-state adopters must come to the state of Texas to retrieve him. Puppies under six months of age will not be allowed to fly in the cargo area of a commercial aircraft. They will be allowed to travel in the main cabin area under the front of the seat of their adopter following FAA and airline regulations.

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

Rocky is a 20-month-old, neutered, liver-and-white, very curious Springer.  He is a very smart boy, as he learned the doggy the first day he was with his foster family.

Rocky wants a Forever Family that will take him on daily walks or runs as well as one who can spend lots of time playing with him. He is good with other dogs and children. He loves to snuggle and have his belly rubbed. Mostly he plays with his toys, but once in a while he will grab a shoe and try to play keep away!

Rocky is current on his vaccinations, has been microchipped for safety and is in good health. He still needs work on his leash skills, but is learning more each day.

She needs a gentle hand and is very independent for a Springer.  If given the chance, Emmie will blossom in a fine companion. She deserves a loving Forever Home and is waiting for the perfect family. Are you the family Emmie is waiting for?

It’s not hard to love Raleigh! This little girl has found a soft spot for those who know her. She’s a gangly youngster who loves to play with other dogs. She is a sweet natured, lively, affectionate girl who likes to be with her people.

Raleigh did not have an easy start in life due to some physical concerns. She has mild hip dysplasia and urinary leaking, both of which are well controlled with medication. We also have discovered that she has bilateral cataracts. Although her vision is somewhat compromised, she has 75 percent of her normal vision. As a result, she sometimes startles and barks briefly. She is easily calmed by human reassurance.

Raleigh would do best in a home that is relatively quiet. She loves the company of other dogs and would do well with a well-matched playmate. She loves her walks and does well on leash. She is a smart girl who would respond well to positive reinforcement obedience training. She loves food and treats and would do well with a puzzle bowl for her meals. She is crate trained and house trained as well as being up to date on her immunizations. 

Please let us know if you think you might be the right family for Raleigh. We ask that approved adopters and their dog meet Raleigh in person.

Interested in Ranger and Tucker? Then read about bonded pairs and the benefits of adopting these special best friends.
Ranger and Tucker are a happy pair of Springers looking for a Forever Home so they can stay together. These sweet boys were rescued from a homeless person, but sadly the family that rescued them found out that Mom is allergic to dogs. They turned to ESRA for help finding a Forever Home that will keep this pair together.

Ranger is liver and white and estimated to be four years old. He does well with other dogs, likes children but is unknown with cats. Ranger has a full tail, is playful and energetic. Ranger is the leader of the pack and is always looking for an adventure.

Tucker is also liver and white and while mostly Springer, we think there may be a bit of Brittany thrown in the mix. Tucker also does well with other dogs and likes children. He has not been tested with cats. Tucker is the follower and very happy to snuggle with Ranger or follow him to whatever adventure awaits.

These two are as sweet as can be, and their foster mom reports that every time she has them out for a walk, someone comments on how beautiful they are. Both boys are very snuggly and, in typical Springer fashion, love those tummy rubs. They are house trained, crate trained and do well at the groomers. A securely-fenced yard is a must, as they do try to dig and go looking for adventures.

Ranger and Tucker are both neutered, microchipped and up to date on all preventative vaccinations.

If you would like to meet Ranger and Tucker, please fill out an adoption application today.

Click here to watch Charlie exploring!
Hello, everyone! My name is Charlie, and I am looking for a new Forever Home. I have been living with my original adopter and his two other Springers. Recently, however, there have been a couple of scuffles, and my dad decided that I would be happier being the only dog in the family.

I am a typical Springer who enjoys being with people of all ages. I have never met a human I don't love! Even though I am a large guy, I am very gentle with everyone I meet. I should also add that I am an expert cuddler, and I am happiest when I am invited to sit or sleep next to my human. Other than being with my people, my favorite activity is hunting lizards in the backyard. I have great manners, and I never, ever get into things that I shouldn't.

All I want is a person I can love who will love me back. If you think we'd be good together, please let my case manager know right away! I'm waiting patiently.

Snuggles,
Charlie


Charlie is a great big loveable Springer who was adopted from ESRA about four years ago. He is being relinquished to our care because he is not getting along with the other resident dogs. In fact, he is not comfortable meeting other dogs on walks or in other venues. When he is at home with his humans, he is a loving, goofy boy with impeccable behavior both in the house and outside. Charlie's favorite pastime, as he mentioned, is chasing those little critters that come into his yard.

This gentle soul with a true Springer heart wants to please more than anything. Charlie will do perfectly fine when he is left home alone, but he would dearly love to have someone there with him most of the time. It is especially important for Charlie to have a large yard to play in since he absolutely needs to be a stay-at-home dog.

Charlie has recently been completely vetted. He is up to date on all his shots, is microchipped, has been neutered, and has tested negative for heartworm. He is a healthy, happy, wonderful boy, and he is looking for a fun and loving Forever Family to belong to. Do you have time to devote to Charlie and a place in your heart and home for him? If so, please have an approved application on file and be prepared to fall in love.

Miss Maddie is a beautiful young Springer looking for her perfect Forever Home. Maddie came into ESRA because she would be happiest as the only dog in her home. Maddie's family is terribly saddened that Maddie would be happier in a different home, but feel this is best for her as the family currently has other dogs.

Maddie has had a couple of litters, but has been spayed and is a healthy girl. She is a cuddle bug and wants to snuggle up next to you and have aspirations of being a full-time lap dog. Maddie can be shy at first, but once she loves you, she will follow you everywhere. She is your Springer shadow.

This sweet girl is fine living with cats and older children. Maddie just does not like other dogs. Maddie is quite comfortable sleeping on the bed and couch, but can be content in her crate if needed. She has excellent house manners, takes treats gently, enjoys leash walks and is house trained. Maddie has a moderate activity level, so daily leash walks and hikes are perfect for her.

If your life is missing a sweet girl like Maddie, and you are looking for a Springer Princess to love and pamper -- she could be a match for you. We ask that approved adopters meet Maddie in person, as she is worth the trip!

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?

Emory's ready for a ride!

ESRA#:2017-121TX
Status: Adopted

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

Age:6 years

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?

ESRA#:2017-255CA

Age:8 years
Gender:Female

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.

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

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.

Age:14 months
Gender:Male
Color:Liver & White
Weight:44 lbs
Variety:Field
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!

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