Thinking about bringing Beeve or another wonderful Senior Springer into your family? Read why rescuing Senior Springers is a top priority for ESRA.
Meet our precious Beeve!  Don't let his age fool you. Mr. Beeve has discovered the fountain of youth!  He is sharp, energetic, fit, agile, and he's a squirrel-chasing fool!  He's darling, he's sweet, and he is searching for a family of his own.  We believe Beeve to be a Sprocker.

Beeve has had the good fortune of being a very well-loved dog.  Sadly, his human mom has been very ill for a while now, forcing them to move to an apartment.  She can no longer walk him and there's no outdoor space for Beeve to run and be the pup he loves to be. She wants only the best for him; so, she selflessly reached out to ESRA for help in hopes of bringing the joy and happiness back into this little boy's life.

Beeve's list of "favorites" include chasing squirrels, playing with toys, riding in the car, visiting with everyone he meets and simply loving you.  His “dislikes” -- thunderstorms! He is a treasure.

Beeve can get somewhat anxious on occasion.  Given lots of opportunity to bound around in the yard, go on daily walks and be provided with socialization and lots of one-on-one time, the anxiety disappears.  When alone, he relaxes nicely in his crate.  He's accustomed to snuggling with you on the couch and on the bed.  He's housetrained and crate trained.  He loves children and he loves other dogs, although he can occasionally be a bit bossy.  It's pretty entertaining to see ten-year-old Beeve chasing around the two-year-old Springer. He is a trip!

Beeve is active, strong and very healthy. He has the cutest little body – it looks like he's put in his time at the gym!  He's current on vaccinations, neutered, heartworm negative, on monthly heartworm and flea prevention and he is microchipped.  His blood work came back great.  He also has just had a dental.

If you would like to put the sparkle back into little Beeve's eyes, please contact his Case Manager.  We are also looking for a foster home for Beeve to land while he waits for his Forever and ever Family.

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

Meet, Mr. Gorgeous -- aka Teddy!

Teddy's lifelong family was forced to give him up after the human baby starting crawling and walking.  He has been very well loved and beautifully cared for by his previous dad.  But, Teddy has his limits and is not equipped to handle the antics of a toddler.

Teddy is absolutely fabulous!  He's so dear and so loving, and all about his people.  He is energetic, always up for the next adventure, loves his walks and loves to explore.  He is a major cuddler and will paw you for more love.  Teddy enjoys his toys and adores his people dearly. He fares well with other dogs but has lived as an only dog thus far.  He is housetrained and crate trained.  We are not aware of any prior exposure to cats, but suspect he wouldn't pay much attention to them.  

A calmer adult home would be ideal for this beautiful boy.  He can be somewhat leery of strangers. Once he meets you, he's absolutely fine -- just not immediately trusting.  His adoptive family will need to commit to working with him, teaching him that meeting strangers and new people entering his home or on his walks is the most fantastic thing that could happen to him.  

Teddy received a clean bill of health from the vet, is current on his shots, tested negative for heartworms and is microchipped.

If you would like to rescue this wonderful, wonderful boy, please contact his Case Manager.

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

ESRA#:2013-23TX
Status: Adopted

Age:7 years
Gender:Male
Color:Black & White
Weight:52 lbs
Variety:Bench
Mason was adopted from ESRA in 2013, but has come back to us due to a number of changes in his family.

He just celebrated his seventh birthday. Mason is a real charmer and has the most expressive eyes. He’s so, so sweet!  He’s playful and affectionate and loves to snuggle. Since he never wants to be too far away, he thinks he should sleep in the bed with his human. He has a pretty laid back temperament. He gets along with all the other dogs and all the people he meets.  Mason’s great with older children (over the age of eight), but babies and toddlers can be too much for him. While he is untested with cats, his laid-back personality indicates that he would probably be fine.  

Mason is the perfect companion and family dog.  He loves to run and play with the other dogs outside, but is the perfect gentleman in the house.  He’s a beautiful boy to boot!  He loves to play with his toys and is always excited to give you the best ever greeting when you come home! Everyone who meets Mason thinks he’s adorable.  He likes to go for walks and LOVES rides in the car.  

Mason has been neutered, is current on all his vaccinations and is microchipped.  The vet has given him a clean bill of health. He currently has a short haircut, but we’ve included some photos of him in all his glory.

Mason is a perfect companion with a delightful Springer personality. Mason is a true Velcro dog and will follow you everywhere.  He walks well on a leash and has excellent recall.  There is nothing disagreeable at all we can say about this guy.  Do you have a place in your heart and home for this very special Springer boy?

Thinking about bringing Toby or another wonderful Senior Springer into your family? Read why rescuing Senior Springers is a top priority for ESRA.
UPDATE 3/2/17: Toby is doing wonderfully on his leash walks! He is walking easily and no longer needs his no-pull harness. This loving, cuddly teddy bear of a dog has so much to give to his future Forever Family.

-----

Toby is blossoming! This beautiful senior gentleman has taken a new lease on life with his recent weight loss (down seven pounds) and new haircut. Life is good and Toby has shown us how ready he is for his permanent family. He is a loving, Velcro Springer who has so much love to give his people. He also so enjoys being part of the gang at this foster home. He and his foster sister have become good friends and enjoy sharing quiet moments at home.

It hasn’t been easy for Toby and he isn’t perfect. And he is an older guy. Here’s his progress report:

• Leash walking – He is doing well with his no-pull harness, and to avoid leash reactions, smart choices from his foster mom. He does best when he can avoid close encounters with other dogs and fast-moving joggers.
• Anxiety – He is much less anxious with the comfortable home routine and a low dose of medication. When he occasionally is anxious (in other words: pacing or whining), he is easily redirected with a treat.
• Hearing – He has responded well to simple hand signals since his hearing has diminished.
• Hip Pain – Toby’s weight loss has helped his comfortable movement in conjunction with a pain medication. We expect the pain med may be temporary with his weight reduction.

Toby is house, doggy door and crate trained. He loves his balls and squeaky toys and can happily entertain himself.

Toby’s foster mom says:

He is very good with hand signals now for Sit, Stay, Lay Down, Come, Release, and Good Dog. He is still super sweet, cuddly, gentle and wants to please his people. When I scolded him for trash diving, there was no sass. He is such a teddy bear. Everyone who meets him loves him, and people pull over in their cars when I’m walking him to ask about him and say how beautiful and sweet he is. 


Toby would love an adult family (no cats, please) that enjoys his loving nature and will provide moderate walks. Toby is a homebody and likes to hang out at home with his people. If you think you might be the right family for Toby, let us know. We would be glad to talk to you about this wonderful gentleman!

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

Hi!  I’m Doodles from Cascade, Colorado. That’s located in the mountains above Colorado Springs.  Unfortunately, my elderly owner passed away and some very nice people who were caring for me lost their home, which ultimately led me to ESRA. Boy, am I ever grateful for their help! 

I may be an older Springer with a few medical problems, but I’m a really great dog looking for a family to share my “golden years” with.  

I left my caregivers in Colorado Springs in February and was transported to the Denver area.  The trip really tired me out.  I travel quietly but will whine if I need to do my business.  There are two other Spaniels in the house with me, and I get along well with them.  I don’t play much though, because I don’t have a lot of energy.  I was given a nice soft bed to lie on but I discovered that I really preferred a folded-up quilt or “blankie” instead.  

My foster family was told that I had a history of medical problems, including diabetes and a problem with my pancreas.  I also had a large tumor on one of my testicles, an enlarged prostate, some vision problems, and skin and coat issues. I guess I was kind of a mess! 

My foster mom took me to Colorado State University soon after my arrival, and, it is there that a whole bunch of tests were done to diagnosis my medical issues.  Because my test results came back confirming that I was diabetic, my neuter and mass removal had to be rescheduled for a couple of weeks later.  Thankfully, when all of that was done, it turned out that the mass was benign, so that was something to celebrate!  I also had my prostate removed then too.  

Because I am diabetic and have a disease of my pancreas which doesn’t produce enzymes the way it should, my foster mom has had to take extra good care of me by giving me shots of insulin and sprinkling special enzyme powder on my food to help with digestion and nutrient absorption.  I eat a special diet too.  She also has to monitor something in my blood called glucose, and takes samples of urine from me a couple of times a day to check something else called ketones.   It is very important that this be done at regular intervals throughout the day to keep me from becoming a very sick boy.    

I frequently visit the vet to make sure that I am stabilized.    Mealtime takes a bit longer than most Springers because of the way my medications are prepared.  This is a lot of work for my foster mom, but she says I’m worth it!   She’s so good to me.   It is her love and care that has made me start to feel quite a bit better.  I don’t know how I managed without her!   

My foster mom says that I’m a very sweet dog with a gentle temperament.  I really enjoy going for rides in the car.   I whimper a bit if left alone, because I really prefer being with my person!  At home, I will follow my people around the house.  They don’t call Springers “Velcro dogs” for nothing, you know!    

Since my surgeries and all of the great care that I have been receiving here, it seems that I am making some progress in my overall health.   I have seventeen stitches that need to heal, but I am doing pretty well otherwise.   I have actually started feeling more energetic and am getting back my Springer gait!  Exercise is good for me and is important for my diabetes control, but I also cannot overdo it.  On our walks, I behave when I see other dogs, and I don’t pull on the leash.  Well, maybe just a little bit when I pass by the neighbor’s house, because I’ve made friends with them and I like to stop to see if they are going to come out and talk to me.   People have been so nice to me!  

I am looking for a special family who would be willing to take extra good care of me.    I have special needs, but it doesn’t mean that I won’t be worth the effort.  My foster mom says I’m such a sweet boy and so deserving of someone special to love and care for me and call me their very own.  Could that person or family be you? 

Hugs -
Doodles

UPDATE 1/3/17: Dutch is currently in heartworm treatment and doing well. He will be available for adoption at approximately the end of January, 2017. Make sure to check back to see how Dutch is doing!

------

Dutch loves you already -- and you've only just met through an online profile!

This cute little boy has a gentle disposition and sweet personality.  Found as a stray, Dutch needs some basic training.  He is eager to please and has excellent eye contact.  Dutch doesn't really understand that people and other dogs have something called “personal space.”  He loves to jump in your lap, stand with his paws on your chest and give you kisses!  If he's not smooching, he presses his face against yours.

Dutch is very playful with other dogs.  He gets in their face and loves to wrestle.  He loves playing with toys and will fetch his ball. He is crate trained and we are working on house training. He's not a barker; however, he will alert you when he hears a noise.

Dutch was very thin and had a sparse coat when he was found.  Just look at his progress!  He is current on vaccinations, neutered and microchipped.  Unfortunately, Dutch tested positive for heartworms and will require treatment.  Ideally, he would receive treatment in a foster-to-adopt home. Heartworm treatment takes about sixty days and the dog has to remain calm during that time period -- no exercise and no excitement. After treatment, though, he will be ready to run and play again!

With a little patience and training, Dutch will be the perfect addition to your family. He will be so worth it!  Please send us your application today to meet this wonderful boy!

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

CeeGee, a.k.a."Cowgirl," is a lovely dog who looks younger than eight years old. She has great house manners and won't get on the furniture or bed. She is crate trained and rides well in a car. She gets along with other dogs and children, but is unknown about cats.

She likes people and wants to check in and see where you are but she isn't the type of dog who needs to always be with you. She likes her toys and is also somewhat light-obsessed, but it's not compulsive. She does takes Proin for nighttime incontinence and sleeps in her crate with a puppy pad to manage it.  

She is in excellent physical condition and very muscular, making her look and act more like a five-year-old dog. CeeGee likes to go for walks but pulls some at the beginning of the walk.

Check out this little beauty! Wouldn’t you love to be the one to give CeeGee her
Forever Home?

Meet our pride and joy, Glory! 

Glory landed in ESRA's care in November, 2016 and her wonderful foster mom has been nursing her back to health. Glory needed to gain some weight and build some muscle. She also had an acute UTI that has now been resolved.  Glory is currently taking medication for mild incontinence and it's working well. She is spayed, current on her shots, heartworm negative and microchipped.

Glory enjoys going for walks and does well on leash.  She loves to run outside and has a beautiful long loping gait!  She goes out to do her business and comes right back to the door. Like all Springers, she loves attention and prefers to be indoors with her people. She would benefit from daily exercise, but she is not a high-energy dog.  

Friendly with strangers and polite with children, Glory does not jump up on people. She knows basic commands and is not a barker.  She has a mild mannered, calm personality. Glory gets along great with the other dogs in her foster home and she's kind to cats as well. Glory would benefit from having another canine companion in her new home, especially if her new mom or dad work outside the home. She is submissive, but not fearful.

Biscuit, who is affectionately called Buddy by his foster parents, is looking for his true Forever Family. He was banished to the outside where he used to live because his presence inside triggered some people's allergies, and his owners said that he shed too much hair. But Biscuit has lots of wonderful qualities that are sure to be appreciated by the right adopters.

This bouncy, loving boy is all Springer. Biscuit loves to play ball and hang out with the other dogs in his foster home. And most of all, he is always eager to cuddle with his humans. He is housetrained and uses the doggie door. Biscuit does not like crates, but he is happy to sleep in his dog bed. He stays off the furniture unless he is invited up for a belly rub.

Our good-looking guy knows the commands Sit, Down, and Come, and he is learning Stay and Back. Biscuit walks well on a leash. He will bolt from the front door when it is opened, so he needs training to learn the command Wait. He will require a secure yard where he can play and explore in safety. Biscuit has a high prey drive, so his new home should not have cats or other small critters.

Biscuit is good with other dogs, and he enjoys playing with them. He is great with all people. Biscuit is up to date on shots, has been neutered and microchipped, and is heartworm negative. 

This handsome boy would make a great addition to any family. Would you like that family to be yours? If so, contact Biscuit's case manager at the e-mail address below to be considered.

Introducing Buckeye, or as he likes to be called, "Bucky".  

Bucky is a big boy at sixty-two pounds. He must have played football in a former life!  He's as sweet as they come, gets along well with other dogs and cats and finds equines to be his friends as well.  

Bucky is working on his training. He will Sit and Lie Down on command (with proper motivation).  His leash skills need work and since he's such a big, strong fellow, he needs someone that can handle his strength as he continues to learn.  He's housetrained, and although he loves to bounce on furniture, he responds to “off.”  Bucky doesn't beg at the table nor gobble or protect his food. He does have a big head, so his lips are a water sponge, though!

This handsome boy would love to be with a Forever Family that is active and wants a cuddly boy to call their own.

My name is Scout. As you can see, I am a liver-and-white, seven-month-old male English Springer Spaniel. I have been in foster care since early January. I don't mind it here, but I really would like a Forever Home of my own. The foster home is nice, plus it has a big yard so I get lots of exercise, which I need. I chase balls and rabbits, and hunting lizards and rats out in the orchard is a favorite pastime!

My foster sister is eight years old, and she is teaching me how to be a proper Springer. If I play too rough, she will correct me. I need that. She is a great foster sister. My foster dad thinks I am very smart--it only took two days to teach me to sit and wait before eating. I know to wait before going in or out of the door. I come as fast as I can when called--super fast! I am well mannered when using my crate as I don't bark or whine, and I sleep all night in it. Prior to bedtime, my evenings are spent relaxing on the special sofa with my foster sister or at my foster dad's feet. Sometimes I need to go inside the crate because the cats want to come into the room. I'm not sure about cats; there are three of them in the house. It would probably be best if my new home did not have any cats.

I love my foster sister, and I really want another young dog about my age at my Forever Home. I like all people, and my early months prior to rescue were spent in a home with children, but I have not been around children in my foster home. I get along well with the neighbors' dogs. We play through the fence--no fence fighting, just sniffing and running.

Being a young pup, I have a few areas that still need work. I pull too hard on my leash when on a walk, I counter surf, and I try to eat my food really fast and then get into my foster sister's dish.

I am well behaved riding in the car and at the vet's office, where I went for a checkup. Everything was fine at my checkup. They gave me some shots and said I needed surgery (a neuter). My foster dad said it wouldn't hurt much. Oh, yeah--did I mention I have very good house manners? No accidents!

Well, gotta go--foster sister wants to play!

Love,
Scout


From Scout's case manager: We are delighted to have Scout ready for adoption, and we look forward to placing him in a loving Forever Home. We are grateful that his first family contacted English Springer Rescue America, Inc. when they realized they had to make the painful decision to give him up due to major life changes that prevented them from keeping him.

Scout should go into a home with no cats. Scout's Forever Home will need to have a second dog, close in age to Scout, so that he has a playmate. We recommend training classes for this young pup. He is a smart, sweet English Springer Spaniel who is still a puppy. Such fun!

Dixie is a beautiful two-year-old liver and white female who came to ESRA from a shelter.   Dixie is sweet as can be; she is a true Velcro Springer who is very loving once she knows that she is safe.

When Dixie came to ESRA, she was very shy and scared of new people and situations.  She has made great progress, but will need a home that will continue to be understanding of her shyness and committed to helping her adjust to new situations.  Dixie loves to play and is very, very active.  She has endless energy and will want to keep playing long after her people are tired.  

Dixie is house trained, microchipped and up to date on all preventative vaccinations.  She rides well in the car and does okay on a leash.   Continued leash work will help Dixie become even better.   No cats or young children for Dixie, though, due to her high prey drive and energy level.   She likes children, but she could easily knock little ones down.  Dixie likes other dogs and would be very happy living with another submissive dog that loves to play.

If you would like to learn more about Dixie, please fill out an adoption application today.

Daisy is a happy, wiggly, young eleven-year-old little lady who is looking for her Forever Home with a new family to love.   Daisy's current family loves her very much, but sadly they have a baby who is allergic to dogs. They have turned to ESRA for help in finding Daisy a new family that will cherish her.

Daisy gets along well with other dogs and cats.  She likes children, rides well in the car and is house trained.   Daisy takes DES twice weekly to control incontinence, which is quite common in female dogs her age.  Daisy is also good at the groomer’s, microchipped and up to date on vaccinations.

Meet gorgeous Bella!  She has the most striking beauty and most wonderful golden eyes.  She has a delightful outgoing personality, gets along with everyone and is as sweet and dear as they come.

Bella is energetic, yet calm as well.  She is amazing with the other dogs and can rumble and tumble with the best of them.  She's always kissing her foster brothers and sisters.  Bella’s smart, obedient, housetrained and crate trained.  She's happy, she's playful and she loves to wrap her paws around your leg and hug you.  Bella needs good daily exercise and would really enjoy another playful dog in the home. She's fantastic and tolerant with young children.  We suspect she would chase cats, but we're not sure.

We cannot begin to sing Bella's praises enough!  The only issue she has is a mild case of submissive urination on occasion, and she has had this since she was a pup.

Bella’s in excellent health, current on all her vaccinations, spayed and on monthly heartworm prevention.  She is also microchipped for safekeeping.

We look forward to hearing from Bella's dream family who will give her the opportunity for lots of outdoor activities where she can bound around, run and swim.

Prince is indeed a prince.  He is the most loving, gentlest, most adorable boy ever!  He has one of the most beautiful temperaments we have ever witnessed.  His eyes – well, his eyes will melt your heart.

Prince, unfortunately, is genetically predisposed to severe allergies.  They were left untreated for six very long and miserable years until finally a concerned citizen reached out to us in hopes of encouraging his family to surrender him to ESRA where he would finally get the medical care he so desperately needed.  He was hairless when he arrived with draining ear infections and he was terribly ill.  His body was unable to absorb nutrients due to his severely compromised immune system.

After many many months, Prince has finally turned a corner!  His immunotherapy luckily is kicking in!  His hair is growing back; he has returned to a healthy fifty-two pounds -- he's got that beautiful Prince sparkle back in his eye!

We are looking for a foster-to-adopt home for Prince until he's a little further along in his recovery.  He is great with the other dogs and he would be excellent with children. Prince is a perfect traveler, too. Everything about him is wonderful!  His family must be willing to give him bi-monthly injections for a while and be a conscientious advocate for him.  ESRA covers his vet bills while in foster care.

Prince is neutered, current on his shots, current on monthly heartworm prevention and microchipped.

Prince deserves to live and be loved and adored like a real-life Prince -- nothing less.  If you would love to add this amazing Springer boy to your life, please contact his Case Manager.

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

What a face!  Blue is definitely one absolutely darling little boy!  He is a tall, lanky, gangly boy, all legs, and a pure fieldie.  Blue was found as a stray and turned into a shelter.  It is very possible that he was simply abandoned rather than lost.  He was rescued just in time.

Blue is good with other dogs but does not always read their signals to back off, getting himself into trouble.  He plays rough and plays often.  So, another dog in the family needs to be equally active and tolerant.  He would do fine as the only canine in the family.  He is best suited for older children or adults as he loves to jump up on you in his exuberance. As with any young Springer, he needs to be confined when left alone.  He's working on liking his crate.

His adoptive family MUST commit to immediate training for him.  Blue's got lots of energy and he doesn't quite know what to do with it.  He needs a large yard and lots of opportunity to be a real Springer.  He is tentative in new situations but is learning the world is a safe place.  

Blue is in good health; however, he needs to continue to gain some weight.  He is current on all his vetting, neutered and microchipped.

Blue does have issues with his vision.  The retina in his right eye is completely detached, in addition to mild cataracts.  There is also some retinal scarring in the right eye.  The veterinary ophthalmologist believes either he was born with this condition or possibly a bout of Distemper was the cause.  We'll never know.  There is no medication nor surgery that can correct the retinal detachment.  There is no pressure and no pain. The wonderful news is that the ophthalmologist does not foresee any further deterioration.  Blue's eyes should have an annual checkup.  We can promise that his impaired vision DOES NOT slow him down.  He is a perfectly normal little Springer boy.

Please contact Blue's foster mom if you are interested in adopting silly, crazy little boy Blue.
