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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Happy trails,
Callie and Franklin



Callie and Franklin’s foster home says:  

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

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

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

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


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

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


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

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

Meet sweet Carmen ... She’s quite a survivor and ESRA’s newest Special Needs pup.

Carmen has the dearest, softest and most gentle eyes — they will melt your heart. And those eyes never leave the humans helping her. She is eating up lots of love and attention from her foster family, rolling over for belly rubs every chance she gets! She will bark and whine if she can’t be snuggled up next to her foster mom. She’s happiest with her head resting in someone’s lap. She has come a long way in a short time in foster care, settling in, feeling a little more safe and secure, less helpless, and getting accustomed to the other Springers in the home.

How she came to be in the poor physical condition ESRA found her is a mystery with questions we may never have answered. It had been reported through social media that, obviously injured and needing immediate vet care, this little dog had been abandoned in a park on a stormy day. Picked up and taken to the Garland shelter, her shelter post went viral on Facebook with hundreds of posts pleading to save this beautiful Springer. ESRA was at the shelter the next morning when the doors opened!

Read more about Carmen by clicking the heart icon which will take you to her Special Needs page. Developing a treatment plan for her will be costly, and exactly what her future holds is not yet clear, but, lucky for Carmen, she is now an ESRA Springer and what ESRA can do for her has no limits because of the generous support we can count on from our staunch friends.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Age:8 years
Gender:Female
Color:Liver & White
Weight:38 lbs
Variety:Bench
CeeGee is a very beautiful and sweet-natured girl, and we are so grateful to be able to assist her. True to the Springer breed, she has a few little quirks, and she will require very experienced, Springer-savvy adopters to help her.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Otis is an adorable eleven-month-old liver-and-white youngster who is very loved by his current family. With young children in the household, however, he is too high energy. They have turned to ESRA for help to find Otis his Forever Home.

Otis lives to be with his people.  Once he knows you are his person, he will always be by your side, no matter if you are just walking around the house, yard or on a trail.  His eyes are on his people at all times.  Otis knows basic commands such as Sit, Down and Stay.  He pulls when on leash, so he is now used to walking with a gentle leader.  

Otis gets very excited when people visit and he jumps on them.  He loves to play ball/chuck it, but he doesn't want to bring the ball back.  He is quite happy chasing the ball and running around holding it.  He loves to get in the water but hasn't figured out swim yet, so instead he just runs through the water.  He is quite happy splashing around in a kiddie pool.

Otis is submissive with other dogs at the dog park so he can sometimes be picked on.  He ignores other dogs when walking on leash and is very easy to walk in busy places.  He loves toys and will try to steal them from other dogs.  Otis has not been tested with cats.

Otis is very good with children, but due to his exuberance, he might knock little ones down.  He loves to snuggle with the babies and needs to be watched so he doesn't accidentally squash them.  He is very sweet and loving and is happiest while snuggling or sitting in your lap.

Otis rides well in a car, is neutered, house trained and up to date on his preventative vaccinations.  Otis is a young, high energy, Velcro Springer with all the great qualities of the breed.   

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

Lucky is a three-and-one-half year old liver-and-white high-energy boy looking for his Forever Home.  Due to life changes, Lucky's family has to move and know that he wouldn't be happy in an apartment. They turned to ESRA for help to find Lucky a home that would be perfect for him.

Lucky is a high energy boy.  He likes to run and play and has a great time at the dog park.  He does well with other dogs when he is not leashed.  On a leash, he may become territorial.  

Lucky does well with children but should never be in a home with cats.  He loves car rides and is ready for any adventure.

Lucky sometimes has digestive issues, but this seems to be better when his dry food is soaked.  Lucky is house- and crate-trained and up to date on preventative vaccinations.

We would like to thank Tammy Holt Photography in San Antonio, Texas for generously donating the photos of Bucky displayed here.

Captain America, I am not -- but Bucky is my name and being a suspicious dog is my game.

I came from Southwest Texas where the tumbleweeds tumble. My life is a bit of a mystery to my foster mom, because I am a lover in bed at night or for daytime naps but all other times I a little flighty. I love to run up behind my foster mom in the yard and grab her shorts to get her to chase me. But she has not caught on to the game and will not chase me! I try to jump at her hand and run, but she still won’t chase me!

I love the outdoors and my foster packs’ members are my buds -- but humans tend to worry me. At night I love to sleep right next to my foster mom or dad and give kisses and tail wags. I would love a boy or girl to play with and sleep with but I will need time to acclimate myself to a new family.

Can I be your Bucky boy and your new best friend?

Call me,
Bucky


UPDATE 7/14/15 from Bucky’s foster mom:

Bucky is doing well at overcoming his shyness. He loves to snuggle in our bed at night. He is now coming up to chairs and climbing up in our laps. He asks prior to climbing up by barking at us. He is a very loving dog but is still working on the command Come.

Layla’s beautiful face and adorable personality make her one of the sweetest Springer girls ever. Her foster mom calls her “Lovebug.” Layla is so affectionate and cuddling is one of her favorite pastimes. Her most favorite thing in the world is playing ball. She will chase the tennis balls for as long as you are willing to throw for her, which is a great way for her to get plenty of exercise. Like most Springers, Layla is a Velcro dog and will follow you everywhere.

Sweet Layla has been loved and well cared for in her life, but due to a divorce and circumstances changing in her original home, Layla is looking for a new Forever Home. She was slightly timid when she first arrived at her foster home, but all that changed within a week’s time. She snuggles with her foster brother, Leo, runs around the house playing hide and seek with her foster mom and loves to snuggle in bed at night. Layla understands some commands, such as Sit, Fetch, Off, Out and No. Layla is smart and is eager to please, so her foster mom is working on more training with her.

Layla is wonderful with children and other dogs, but we are unsure about cats. Layla would love to find a Forever Home with a family that likes to play ball, loves to cuddle, and one that has another dog to play with would be perfection. Oh, just one more thing -- lots and lots of tennis balls!

This gorgeous Springer girl is up to date on everything: spayed, microchipped, healthy and happy. Layla is ready to go to her new loving family. She will be celebrating her fourth birthday in October of 2015, so she is excited to find a new family to celebrate with her.

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 Max or another wonderful Senior Springer into your family? Read why rescuing Senior Springers is a top priority for ESRA.
Max is a super-sweet liver-and-white boy who is about ten years old.  He is a smaller Springer, weighing in at forty pounds. He has a full tail.  Max originally came to ESRA in 2015, but sadly his adopter passed away so he is back in foster care with us.

Max is very loving and snuggly.  He needs a little help to crawl up on the couch or bed, but will happily cuddle with you once he is there.  Max is house trained but likes to make frequent trips outside to a fenced yard.  He will ask to come back in the house once he has done his business and checked out the yard.

Max gets along well with other dogs and with children.  He has not been tested with cats.   Max has been fully vetted and just had a dental cleaning.  He is microchipped.  Max was the only dog in his prior home but has adjusted quite well to his foster home’s resident dogs. We believe he could easily adjust to being an only dog again or be quite happy sharing a home with other dogs.

Max's foster dad states that he is a lovely Velcro boy that is eager and attentive and it will be hard to see him go to his Forever Home.

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

Click here to see Sunny running and playing!
Hello, everyone! My name is Sunny, and I am looking for a new Forever Home. I hope it will be one with a large yard and another dog to play with. And if there are children who live there, that would make all my dreams come true!

I am a typical young Springer who enjoys being with people of all ages. There are lots of other Springers at my foster home, and I love playing and hanging out with them. When I first came here, I was very scared and shied away from everything. Now, though, there seems to be something new to learn every day, and that is lots of fun.

I love to play ball, go for long walks, and romp in a wading pool. I’ve never tried swimming in a big pool, but that might be lots of fun, too. Mostly, though, I'll have fun just being with a family that I can love and who will love me back. Could that family be yours?

Your new best friend,
Sunny


From Sunny’s foster mom: Sunny is a young Springer who is full of love! Sunny's owner was too ill to keep him. Because she wanted to find a great new home for him, she called ESRA for assistance. Sunny was living in a household that included a young boy and a dog-savvy cat. Sunny was his owner’s constant companion, and he is a true Velcro Springer.

This handsome boy has wonderful manners both inside and outside the house. He will Sit on command, and he walks well on leash. We would encourage his new family to enroll Sunny in an obedience class, as this will not only let him know what is expected of him but will increase the bonding between Sunny and his new owners.

What are some of Sunny's favorite things? Well, he absolutely loves to cuddle--on the couch, on your lap, or in your bed. He also loves to eat, and he will actually sing for his supper!

Sunny is a healthy boy who is up to date on his shots, has been neutered, and is microchipped. He is housetrained and has been learning how to use a doggie door. The ideal new Forever Home for Sunny will be one with another dog for him to play with. He would benefit from having someone at home most of the time with him and, as mentioned above, he would absolutely love to have children to play and cuddle with.

This healthy, happy young guy is looking for a fun and loving Forever Family who will include him in all their adventures. Do you have the time to devote to Sunny and a place in your heart and family for this wonderful boy? If so, please have an approved adoption application on file before contacting his foster mom at the e-mail address below.

Curly is a happy and energetic tri-color Springer Spaniel mix. He was saved from being euthanized four years ago and recently returned to ESRA due to a major change in his family. He's doing great in his foster home but needs a new home of his very own.

Curly is very active and wants an active mom and/or dad who is ready for a happy boy.  He is happy-go-lucky and loves to play with toys.

He has learned quickly to Sit, Stay and not jump up and kiss you. Given the chance, however, he would love to share his love with anyone who wants love.  He's quite adaptable and seems to enjoy any game you can come up with! He loves going to the dog park, gets along with other dogs and lives to play.

Curly likes children, but they need to be old enough to understand how to play with him. If you have an active home and want a dog who will do everything with you, then Curly could be the dog for you!

Magnolia True "Maggie" is a six-year-old liver-and-white female looking for a new Forever Home where she can be the only dog.   Currently Maggie is living with other dogs and cats and is not happy. Her family has turned to ESRA for help to find Maggie the perfect Forever Home where she can be the only dog.

Maggie's favorite things are being with her people both inside and out, walks, hikes, sniffing, swimming, learning new tricks, cuddling and -- did we mention sniffing?

Maggie is used to being allowed on the furniture (including beds) and wants to continue to do this in her new home.  At night Maggie prefers to sleep in her crate beside her humans’ bed.   Maggie doesn't like to be left alone, so a retired family or someone that works from home will be high on her wish list.

Maggie does not like other dogs or cats.  Her current family has worked very hard to help her get over this, but she has not changed. Therefore, being the only dog is a must for her.  Maggie has no experience with small children, so we don't know if she would like them; teenagers would be fine, though.  

In her new home, Maggie will need a fenced yard but one with no dogs living on the other side in the neighbors’ yards.  She is an active girl who may do best in a rural area.   Maggie is loving, playful, obedient and gentle with her family.  She loves to play and knows many commands such as Sit, Down, Stay and Come. She also does advanced commands such as high-fives and roll over.

Maggie is house and crate trained, up to date on preventative vaccinations and microchipped.  Like many Springers, she gets the occasional ear infection and she takes a daily pill for urinary leakage.  Maggie is good with the groomer.

Currently Maggie lives in a rural area and is used to a daily walk or run.  She loves to swim and is very happy when she gets to play in the water.  Maggie rides well in a car.

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

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

Age:6 years

Weight:42 lbs
Variety:Bench
Miss Reba is a playful little character. She is so adaptable to her people and circumstances. She comes into a new situation and makes herself right at home. Reba is a happy and enthusiastic girl who wants to participate in your routine and your life.

Reba came into ESRA's care a little overweight and it was important for us to help her lose some weight for her FHO (Femoral Head Ostectomy) surgery.  The head of her femur was almost out of the socket, which is a painful condition which that she had lived with for a long time.  Her surgery was a success and her rehab has gone extremely well thanks to the amazing care of her foster mom.  Reba now has the “all clear” from her vet to go to her Forever Home. She now goes on daily walks of ten blocks. She will never be a jogging or hiking partner, though, but looks forward to her neighborhood walks and navigates the stairs in her foster home with no problems.

Reba plays with toys, snuggles, follows you from room to room and gives the sweetest little kisses. She rides well in the car and enjoys car rides. We have found that she responds best to a gentle leader on her walks. Due to the fact that she protected her hip all those years, children over the age of ten would be best for her. Large dogs and dogs that engage in rough-style play would not be the best fit for Reba, either.

If you think this funny little Springer girl might fit into your family and your heart, please contact us.

Meet our gorgeous supermodel, CiCi!  No fault of her own, at only eleven months old, she already had two families and had landed in a shelter.  Her ESRA foster family fell for her immediately and formally made her "theirs."  Unfortunately, they have had to make the tearfully heartbreaking decision to find her another home as an only dog.

Cici is tall, lean, leggy and gorgeous with a beautifully gentle temperament.  She is a stunning athlete who needs time and room to be a field-bred Springer. While an active girl, her greatest need is companionship. She will be content to sit on your lap and gratefully accept your adoration.  She is ridiculously affectionate -- the world's largest love bug. She loves to run and play and is doing an exceptional job keeping the squirrels out of the yard.  

Cici is housetrained, crate trained and doggy door trained. Her adoptive family may want to crate her when left alone, as she is still a young pup learning all the rules. However, she is frequently left out of her crate when her foster family leaves because they have dog doors and having lots to keep her occupied outside seems to keep her out of trouble.  Her foster family has worked diligently on her "good manners" training and making great progress. She has learned to sit to be petted and given treats and is learning the Stay command. We expect that she would be fantastic with children. She would be happiest with her family around much of the time. 

Cici is not fond of sharing her toys nor her food with other dogs. Therefore, we prefer to place her as the only "princess" in the home. Having said that, we would like her to still be able to socialize and romp with other dogs at the dog park or play dates, as she fares very well in that environment and enjoys it so. She is unknown with cats.

Cici is very healthy, current on vaccinations, heartworm negative, spayed and microchipped.

Cici is a truly amazingly exceptional Springer. Please contact her Case Manager if you can make Cici's life the best ever!

Thinking about bringing Ruby or another wonderful Senior Springer into your family? Read why rescuing Senior Springers is a top priority for ESRA.
UPDATE, 4/7/17: It appears that Ruby is younger than we originally estimated--possibly ten or eleven. She is now an active senior in amazing shape who would love long daily walks. Ruby jumps and spins when you arrive home. She wrestles and plays with the Springer youngsters in her foster home. She jumps up and down on the furniture and in the car, freely and comfortably. She will dart after the squirrels. There is a young Springer behind that graying face! Ruby would make an amazing member of a family with children or grandchildren. There is no dog more gentle. Ruby is the dearest, sweetest, kindest, easiest, and most adorable senior dog--a true gem!
________________________

We can guarantee the special family who adopts this lovely senior girl will find a slice of heaven in Ruby.

Welcome to ESRA, Miss Ruby.  She is a true gem!  Ruby is undeniably the sweetest, kindest, most gentle soul.  She is incredibly well-mannered, asking permission before she does anything.  She adores all people and gets along famously with all dogs. We are guessing she is somewhere around eleven years old. 

Ruby was dropped at the city shelter by a family member after her owner was moved to assisted living. Unfortunately, Ruby was in pretty rough shape -- suffering from severe ear and skin infections, flea infestation and significant hair loss.  But her sweet, loving and gentle personality shone brightly.

Ruby would be happiest with a family who is home much of the time.  She is all Velcro, following her foster mom's every step.  She is beautifully behaved and housetrained. She gets excited at meal time and will bark in anticipation.  One of her favorite pastimes is stalking squirrels and sunning on the deck.  She is a riot! She would really enjoy a canine companion.  We expect she would do well with young children, as long as she was treated respectfully.  Ruby might need several weeks to settle into her Forever Family, as she has experienced lots of upheaval in her senior years. She hopes to find a family who will allow her to snuggle on the couch and in your bed.  

The vet finds Ruby to be in good health.  And, it comes as no surprise, Ruby is mostly deaf.  Her blood work and urinalysis were good.  Her skin and ears are clearing up.  She has mild allergies, but a daily dose of Apoquel seems to be doing the trick.  She is heartworm negative.  She is on daily Proin for incontinence, which is working perfectly, as well.  Her energy level has really increased; she is feeling great!  Ruby just needs a little time now for her coat to grow back in shiny and healthy and her ears and feathering to grow in. She'll be a movie star!  

We cannot say enough about this awesome, deserving senior. Please reach out to her Case Manager if you have already fallen for this beautiful senior lady.

We are looking for a very special adopter for our darling, lovable, goofy pup named Shawn.

Unfortunately, Shawn's upbringing was unusually isolated -- his exposure to people and other dogs was limited to his human family. Without a fenced yard and living in close proximity to a highway, Shawn lived most of his life inside the house and/or a crate without proper exercise for an energetic Springer.  The lack of proper socialization has presented Shawn with some challenges.

Shawn is uncomfortable meeting strangers. He wants so badly to wiggle in excitement but his response is instead very tentative. After a brief meeting, he is a bouncy, ridiculously affectionate love bug. But, his family will need to work diligently with him making each encounter with strangers a wonderfully positive experience.  As young as he is, he should grow into a trusting and confident young man before you know it. His family will require some patience and understanding and let him approach others on his own terms. The same goes for meeting other dogs.  Otherwise, he is a perfectly "normal," silly, playful, mischievous, energetic Springer! Oh, and did we mention gorgeous?

We believe Shawn would benefit from and thoroughly enjoy another dog in the home as a playmate. A single-dog home for Shawn will certainly be considered, though.  Having been raised with young children, Shawn adores them.  Yet, we prefer to place him with a family with older or no children.  He needs structure and a family who has lots of time to share. He is housetrained and crate trained, and like most young Springers, needs leash work.  Shawn is a great passenger in the car.  He is unknown with cats.

Shawn is in excellent health, neutered, current on all routine vetting and shots, on monthly heartworm and flea prevention and he is microchipped.

Shawn is so ready to embark on an entirely differently life as a beloved family member.  Hold on world-- here he comes!  

Please contact his Case Manager if you are a perfect match.

Meet tall, dark, handsome and fabulous Rocky! Rocky is in search of a home fit for a king. He's always smiling, always wiggling, and is quite the "talker."

Rocky loves his walks and gets super excited when he sees the leash come out.  He hops in the car at any chance he gets to go anywhere and everywhere.  He's quite social and has never met a stranger.  You can take this guy anywhere.  He loves playing fetch and loves to trot around with a stuffed toy in his mouth.  Rocky adores your attention and craves your affection.  His coat is long, silky and gorgeous!  He was a great client at the groomer.  While he needs to learn some basic commands, he is very well-behaved and obedient.  Thus far, we have not seen any bad habits.  He's housetrained and seems to be fine in a crate, although trustworthy when left alone in the house.

Rocky was surrendered to the shelter due to his inability to get along with his lifelong canine buddy.  He has fared quite well in his foster home with the other dogs and really seems to enjoy their company, along with wrestling and playing chase with them.  However, so he does not have to be uprooted from a family again, we prefer to place him as an only dog or perhaps with a submissive female.  

Rocky will need a couple of weeks to settle in his new home, as he can be a bit anxious with big changes.  We also believe he would be happiest with a stay/work-at-home family.  We're comfortable placing him in a home with older children.  He's shown us nothing but a beautiful temperament, as nothing seems to upset him.

Other than being ten pounds overweight, Rocky is in excellent health.  His ideal weight is around fifty pounds.  He's already lost a few of those.  His adopter must feed him a healthy food and provide ample daily walks and exercise in the yard.  He is heartworm negative, on monthly heartworm prevention, neutered, current on shots and microchipped.  

Please reach out to Rocky's Coordinator if you are the perfect match for this handsome Springer with the movie-star looks!

Meet handsome Tucker!

Tucker came to ESRA as a low energy, rather sad boy who clearly needed love and attention.  His nails were overgrown and had to be clipped to allow him to walk without pain. He was about fifteen pounds overweight and had little interest in exercise.  His foster parents turned all that around.  

We discovered that he had a low thyroid and he now is maintained on a daily low dose of thyroid, an inexpensive medication.  His active foster parents have introduced him to the joys of running and walking and now he can’t wait for his walks and runs. From single half-mile walks, he has progressed to three-mile runs.  His diligent foster mom has introduced him to healthy eating habits and he has already lost seven pounds and continues to move toward his ideal weight. His dry skin is helped by a daily fish oil supplement.

His foster mom says:  

Tucker is the sweetest, gentlest boy. He is a dream Springer with a happy wagging tail most of his waking moments. He is so relaxed. He is happy to spend his day resting by the feet of his foster mom, or snuggling up on the couch after dinner. But, when it's time to walk or run, things get exciting. He runs to the front door and sits patiently until he gets his leash secured. A no-pull harness helps, as Tucker does pull a little on leash. He loves all dogs and people that we meet on our walks or runs and likes to stop for a quick sniff and a wag.  


Tucker responds to Sit, Stay, and Come along with responding instantly to his name.  He sleeps through the night and is happy getting up at 6:30 during the week, or waiting until 8:00 or later on the weekends. He will let you know when he needs to go out. He was very shy when he first arrived in Colorado, but he has really opened up in the last few weeks.  He has become a little more adventurous, but still makes sure that one of his foster parents is in sight. Tucker is initially protective of his family until he has been introduced to new people in his home.  

This handsome boy is ready for his Forever Family.  Let us know if you think Tucker might be the dog for your family!

Bella is a petite little Springer that we like to call a “Pocket Springer” because she is so tiny you could carry her around in your pocket. Bella is a very sweet, affectionate little girl; she does not whine or bark when left alone. Bella follows her foster parents wherever they go and always elicits comments from strangers about how cute she is!

Bella is housetrained and likes to cuddle up next to you on the couch or at bedtime. She will, however, happily sleep in her crate. Bella is good in the car and could use a little practice with her obedience skills. She is a very smart little Springer, and has learned so much simply from being in a routine. A good refresher course in obedience skills will make her “the dream pet.” Bella does have a high prey drive, so a home without cats would be ideal. 

Bella would do best in an adult home. She does not do well with babies and young children. Bella’s perfect Forever Home is one where she is the only dog. She does relish being the center of attention and would rather not share her humans with other dogs.

Bella enjoys daily walks and playtime with her tennis ball. She would thrive in a home where she can cuddle, go on walks and play ball with you. Bella is a devoted and loving companion just waiting for her Forever Home. If Bella is perfect for you, please contact us to inquire about meeting this little lady. To ensure that a perfect match for Bella is found, we will need approved applicants to visit with her in person.

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 Bella.
