SPRINGER FOSTER PARENTS NEEDED!!

Do you have room in your home and your heart for a Springer in need? We pay for necessary veterinary expenses, including heartworm medications and flea prevention. We ask that you provide food, toys, lots of love, a kind hand, and a safe  home in which a Springer can live temporarily while we seek that perfect Forever Home for him or her.

We do not have a shelter or kennel, and our ability to continue rescuing depends on whether we have a place for the dogs to stay when they are released to our rescue group. We exist entirely on donations and adoption fees, so it is difficult for us to board an animal in a kennel or vet's office since most foster dogs are in our care for two to six weeks.

If you give a rescue dog a temporary home, not only will you save a life, you will vastly improve your own. People who love animals live longer, healthier lives and you'll redecorate your home with fur for free!

If you will consider helping our dogs, please fill out our Foster Home Application or contact your state's coordinator

Thank you for helping in any way you can.

Read about bonded pairs and the benefits of adopting these special best friends.
These two beautiful boys are brothers, and they share a strong bond. Sawyer and Bentley are happiest when they are within sight of one another, and neither one goes far without the other. When they came into ESRA's care, their tender mutual devotion was evident right from the start. During the medical exam, Bentley yelped as the vet was cleaning out his ear. Sawyer immediately jumped up onto the table next to Bentley and started kissing the vet so as to distract her from hurting Bentley. The close relationship between the two is just so sweet! They depend on each other for their comfort and happiness, so we are looking for a family who will adopt them both so they can stay together.

Both boys have been completely vetted and are in energetic good health. Upon arrival, Sawyer tested positive for heartworm disease, and he has now been successfully treated. His chest x-ray looks good, showing no evidence of lung or heart damage. Sawyer and Bentley both had small superficial skin growths which were removed, and they were treated for skin infections. Their ears will have to be watched closely and kept clean, because, like many Springers, they are very prone to ear infections.

Sawyer and Bentley's foster mom has fallen in love with them and describes them as follows:

They are lover boys and are eager to please. I would say that Sawyer is more the father figure because he likes to be the boss, while Bentley is like the mischievous teenage son, the instigator! Bentley is very smart and will watch until the coast is clear and then sneak his cute little self off to the kitchen so he can do some undercover counter surfing while no one is looking. Meanwhile, Sawyer will not leave your side for fear he will miss something, whether it be a tummy rub or a kiss.

Both dogs are extremely compassionate and want nothing more than to be loved. Bentley likes to show off at times, prancing around with a toy in his mouth as if to say, "Look at me, look at me!" These boys are not crated at any time and are very trustworthy when left alone during the day while I am at work. They are good watch dogs--if they spot a strange dog or person, they will certainly let you know. Upon meeting people, they are fine after the sniffs.

I want a special home for these boys. They deserve nothing but the best. They are both so soft and handsome, and they are enjoying the experience of living inside after years of being kept outside. We've never had an accident in the house. They are allowed on my furniture, and they make GREAT bed warmers at night. When Sawyer and Bentley find their Forever Home, a big piece of my heart will go with them. I would love nothing more than to see them adopted by a very special family with plenty of time to devote to them. They deserve it.


If you think that you have room in your heart and your home for this double bundle of love, please contact their case manager by phone or e-mail right away. You'll be glad you did!

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

Read about bonded pairs and the benefits of adopting these special best friends.
These gorgeous young Springers are Avila and Adidas, inseparable brothers who are super sweet, loyal, and loving. They are being surrendered to ESRA because their current owners will soon be moving into an apartment, and they want the boys to find a Forever Home with a yard to play in and plenty of room to roam around.

Avila is the more laidback and mellow guy. He is an expert cuddler, and he snuggles right in close to get comfy. He is not a kissy boy, but he does nestle his head into your shoulder to express his affection. Avila sleeps on his people's bed, and he prefers to lounge on furniture rather than on the floor. He does have a prey drive, and he is thrilled to chase after birds. Avila can swim, but he rather prefers just getting his paws wet. He plays with balls inside and outdoors, where he lies in the shade until he is ready to bring the ball back for another toss. Avila loves to howl in unison with his humans, which is hysterical to witness. His eating manners are nice, other than some random instances of countersurfing!

Adidas is more timid and can be somewhat anxious. He will cuddle a little bit, but he rather just wants to be by your side, touching you. This fellow sometimes sleeps on the people bed, although he gets hot quickly and generally prefers the floor. He loves chasing after and catching a Frisbee, and he will play with balls, too. Adidas does not like squeaky toys, chewing on them only long enough to remove the squeaker and then losing interest. He is most fond of playing fetch and retrieve non-stop until his humans end the game! Adidas needs somewhat more mental and physical stimulation than his brother does, though he wants to please his people and make them proud of him. Adidas is a water dog, swimming and fetching toys to his heart's content. He has polite eating manners and exhibits no inappropriate behavior.

Adidas and Avila are typical Velcro Springers, truly attached to their humans. They most prefer the company of their people, and they would definitely be happiest having someone at home most of the time with them. These two are crate trained and also have impeccable house manners, although they can be a vocal duo when they are left home alone!

These fun, active boys like to wrestle with each other, and they can easily shred plush toys in minutes. They are great with commands, and they know Sit, Lie Down, Stay, and Sit Pretty. Avila has almost mastered High Five! Both are housetrained, neutered, current on vaccinations and preventatives, and microchipped.

Both are becoming more accustomed to car rides, but they are still nervous with the vet and the groomer. Because Avila and Adidas together want to be the center of attention, we recommend a Forever Home with no other pets to steal their spotlight. And due to their extremely friendly greeting habits and occasional jumping up, a Forever Family with no small children will be best.

Avila and Adidas have lacked socialization and training in their formative years, but they are intelligent, energetic, and eager to please with direction and guidance. These two have tremendous potential and will benefit from consistent, loving leadership provided by a dog-savvy Forever Family that is willing and able to devote the time and patience necessary to educate and exercise them. Adidas and Avila will appreciate daily walks, during which they can work on their leash skills and bond with their humans. A fenced yard would be a huge bonus so they could explore freely and safely.

This adorable bonded pair will be the perfect addition to some fortunate Forever Family. With their amazing personalities, beautiful looks, and abundant devotion, these brothers will melt hearts and warm souls. Contact our state coordinator today to inquire further!

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

Meet Norman Winslow, a.k.a. Norm. Isn't he the cutest little guy? What an adorable, expressive gaze and stunning markings this charmer has! In addition to his good looks, Norm is a low-key, happy puppy who is eager to get along with everyone. He respects all humans, from the youngest children to senior citizens. His foster mom declares Norm to be an absolute dream!

Without any bad habits to break, Norm is housetrained and crate trained. He has the run of the house with the resident canines when his family is away, and he has not shown any inappropriate behavior. On one occasion, a quick shopping trip turned into an eight-hour outing, and when his people arrived home, they were impressed that Norm had been a true gentleman. His foster mom says it was as if they had never left the house--no problems, no accidents.

This amiable boy gets along famously with both his senior Springer and special-needs Springer foster brothers. We know that he would adore having one or more dogs in his Forever Home. Every morning Norm loves to greet his foster siblings with nose bumps and paws before they go outside. Norm has also been exposed to small children, and he passed the kid test with flying colors!

Norm came to his foster home already trained to wait at inside doorways, and he also waits to be released from an open car door. Always keen for an outdoor stroll, Norm leash walks a mile every day with a group of neighborhood dogs. A typical Velcro Springer, this intelligent fellow keeps an eye on his humans and his furry peers when he is off leash. He checks back often when he is outside and comes running when he is called or whistled for.

This cutie has his own personal Nylabone. When he is bored, he will find it and settle in for a nice chew. Norm is so well mannered that he has not chewed anything that does not belong to him. He rides quietly in the car. He is best if he travels before a meal, as he has become carsick on occasion. This occurs often in puppies, and they tend to outgrow the problem shortly.

Pure puppy joy best describes this sweet young pooch. He is adored by his foster family, and they are seeking the perfect Forever Home for their little prize. If you are interested, please contact his foster mom today. Some lucky folks will hit the jackpot with Norman Winslow!

Thinking about bringing Hudson or another wonderful Senior Springer into your family? Read why rescuing Senior Springers is a top priority for ESRA.
Meet handsome, happy Hudson. He and a companion, Willie, came to ESRA when their family moved and couldn't take them along. Hudson has lived in harmony with both dogs and cats. He also lived with children and is friendly with them.

This easygoing, housetrained boy is a former 4-H dog and is an easy keeper. He loves to carry a big stuffed toy in his mouth once he gets comfortable with his surroundings. When his foster family is away at work during the day, Hudson has free rein of the house, and he usually sleeps. He won't even get on the furniture.

Hudson's foster mom describes him as a "clingon." He loves to follow her around the house and be near her. His most endearing quality is that he likes to put his head in between people's legs for scratches. He loves to be brushed, and he doesn't mind having his nails clipped or his ears cleaned.

His foster family is helping Hudson lose some weight. He is starting to slim down, and he now has about fifteen pounds to go before he's at his ideal size.

This boy is just right in every sense, and he will make a fine companion for some lucky adopter. If you'd like more information about Hudson, please contact his case managers at the e-mail address below. He's eager to meet you!

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 Hudson.

Thinking about bringing Willie or another wonderful Senior into your family? Read why rescuing Seniors is a top priority for ESRA.
Willie came to ESRA with his companion Hudson after his family moved and could not take the two dogs along. We think he may be a Springer with some cocker spaniel or English setter mixed in. We know that Willie is good with other dogs and cats, as he previously lived with some of each.

This boy isn't a barker, so he wouldn't be a good watchdog, but he would do fine in a condo or townhouse because he is a quiet guy. Willie really enjoys sniffing around outside, and he would love to satisfy his curiosity by exploring a fenced yard and/or taking walks around the neighborhood with his family.

Willie loves his dog bed, and he can almost always be found there when he is not sniffing! He is housetrained and shows good inside manners, but he also does great in a kennel when his foster family is gone for the day. Willie is a good eater, and he certainly wouldn't mind receiving treats from the table if his people allowed that!

This easy keeper is ready to find his Forever Family so that he can share his love with them. If you have a place in your home and your heart for Willie, please contact his case managers at the e-mail address below.

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

Jake's vet bills have accumulated to the point that we are asking for donations to assist him. If you would like to make a contribution to ESRA specifically for Jake (2013-860MN), make sure to indicate his name and intake number when you do so. Please click here to reach our Donations page to help Jake. He will be so happy!
Meet our man Jake! He has been in and out of various homes for a few years now. Jake has been constantly misunderstood, so we are seeking a patient, dog-wise, and loving family to support him and help him live a happy life.

Jake has been well trained, and he responds to commands. However, he seemed to be stubborn about coming out of his crate when he was asked to do so after being crated all day. He was grouchy and did not like people reaching for his collar to force him out. This cost him more than one home and resulted in some unfavorable training methods being used. Once Jake arrived at our home, we noticed that he did not move smoothly when he was running, so we had his hips examined and discovered that he has severe hip dysplasia. The poor boy was sore from not being able to move about all day while he was confined in the crate.

In our home, Jake has found it quite nice to be left alone in the house all day uncrated. He is very trustworthy and has never had an accident. His temperament has improved, and we now have an understanding of what hurts him.

Jake has been thoroughly evaluated by the orthopedic department at Colorado State University veterinary hospital. They have recommended not to replace his hips at this time but rather to help manage his condition with supplements and physical therapy. He likes the physical therapy because it involves treats! He is very food motivated, as is typical of Springer Spaniels.

You can see from his photos that Jake enjoys being outside. Because he has always had bad hips, he doesn't know anything different but just keeps doing what other Springers do. He sniffs up birds, bunnies, and mice in the field. He plays with our other foster dogs, and he will fetch toys for us. He enjoys life!

Jake likes to snuggle with you while you watch TV. He loves treats of all kinds. He adores going for car rides. Above all, he just wants to be your best buddy. He walks well on a leash, is invisible-fence trained, and uses a doggy door as well.

Jake's Forever Family will need to keep up his physical therapy and keep him slim. They must also understand that Jake will need more medical care in the future. A family that could take him swimming would be ideal, as this exercise really helps stretch and build up his muscles. That is key to keeping him comfortable.

We do not know how Jake would be with small dogs or cats. We would not recommend that he live with small children because they might not understand that they could hurt him by touching or pulling on him.

This boy has a fun and goofy personality. He knows how to work you for treats, toys, and attention. He has done well with all of our foster dogs since he has been here. He did think that being the only dog on the overnight trip to the vets at CSU was great, though, because he got all of our attention!

Jake truly deserves the best. Please contact us at the e-mail address below for more information.

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

Please meet our striking girl, Zoey. This long-legged beauty became an ESRA dog late last fall when her owner had to surrender her for personal reasons. Zoey came to us with some pretty bad ear and eye infections as well as a not-so-healthy coat. She also needed some help finding the happy, fun-loving Springer hiding within her. Zoey has been in a wonderful foster home for the last several months, getting healthy, gaining confidence, and learning to enjoy life. And now we are pleased to announce that she is ready to find her Forever Family.

Zoey shares her foster home with several other dogs, but she would be happy as an only dog. She is content to be off by herself exploring outside or snoozing in the house. Although Zoey will occasionally hang out with her canine housemates, she mostly ignores them. But she loves attention from humans, especially when they scratch her wiggly butt! Zoey is untested with cats and small children.

Our girl is an active dog, so she needs a family who will provide her with daily exercise. Mental stimulation is also key with Zoey, as she likes to “relocate” laundry and other small items around the house when she gets bored. Her foster mom refers to these antics as “Zoey’s Relocation Program.” She never destroys anything; she simply moves it from one place in the house to another. This girl needs a job!

Zoey is housetrained, and she uses a doggie door at her foster home. She can be trusted to have free rein of the house when her foster mom leaves. Zoey was not spayed when she came to ESRA, so she was spayed after coming into our care. After the surgery, we noticed that she was having accidents in the house. The doctor diagnosed her with spay incontinence, which explains why Zoey leaks urine at times. She is on a daily dose of Proin to keep the leaking under control.

It has been amazing to watch Zoey’s transformation over the last several months, and now she’s ready for the next phase. This special girl can’t wait to meet the person/people that will share her new life. Please contact her case manager at the e-mail address below if you have room in your home and your heart for this lovely lady.

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

Thinking about bringing Snickers or another wonderful Senior Springer into your family? Read why rescuing Senior Springers is a top priority for ESRA.
Sweet Snickers is ready to find a new, loving family. He was adopted from ESRA several years ago by some wonderful people, but he was recently returned due to owner health issues. Snickers has been very well cared for and very much loved.

Snickers gets along with other dogs, but no cats for this guy! He will follow the other dogs around, but he does not engage in play with them, nor does he play with toys. Snickers would do best as an only dog or with another dog that is not dominant, as he is a bit timid. His ideal life would be hanging out with his people and lying around outside, watching the world go by. However, you must not neglect his walks! Once that leash comes out, he is ready to rock! Snickers also likes the water. In the past few weeks, he has gone swimming with his canine foster siblings.

Our boy, who will celebrate his twelfth birthday in November, is up to date on all vetting, is neutered, and is microchipped. He does have some common age-related issues. Snickers has some hearing loss, and he is dealing with a chronic ear infection, which unfortunately his vet thinks cannot be fully cured but can be controlled. The condition is getting better with a change in diet and some new meds. Snickers can hear very loud noises, and he is learning hand signals. He also has some rear knee issues, but with the diet change and some supplements, he is doing more running and jumping. A home with a minimal number of stairs would be ideal. According to Snickers, neither of these two issues matter one bit to him!

Snickers is fully housetrained, and he will bark to go out. He is also familiar with a doggie door. He does not need to be crated as he does not bother a thing when left alone in the house. He eats well around other dogs around, and he is good in the car. Snickers does enjoy relaxing on the sofa, but he cannot make it up onto the bed. He loves his naps, especially in front of an air vent.

Snickers has not quite found that bond with the groomer, and he is not fond of being brushed or trimmed, so he will try to nip and bite. We therefore recommend a muzzle and an experienced groomer. Due to this and his hearing issues, we also recommend a home with children over the age of twelve.

This senior gentleman is as sweet as they come, and he deserves to have a loving Forever Home where he can be happy and comfortable for the rest of his days. If you think that home might be yours, please contact his case manager at the e-mail address below.

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

Thinking about bringing Dakota or another wonderful Senior Springer into your family? Read why rescuing Senior Springers is a top priority for ESRA.
Dakota is a very sweet and loving girl. She loves being around people and is your typical Velcro Springer. Dakota stays right by her foster mom's side, even when off leash outside at the local dog park. When home, she is never far away and looks to show you affection and attention.  Sometimes all the loving and playing can get tiring. Dakota enjoys taking a snooze in her dog bed. 

Some of Dakota's hobbies include taking walks around the neighborhood, riding in a car, going to dog parks and being petted or scratched. She has great energy, walks well on a leash and enjoys life! Dakota is in great health and recently had her teeth cleaned. She responds well to whistles, loud talking and hand clapping. Dakota has good manners and is housetrained. 

Although Dakota is very easy going and gets along with everyone at the dog park, her foster family thinks she would do best living as an only dog or with another male dog. She does fine with cats (ignores them) and has done well meeting children. Dakota is a wonderful senior Springer that is ready to find her Forever Home. She is excited to provide her affectionate companionship!

Thinking about bringing Archie or another wonderful Senior Springer into your family? Read why rescuing Senior Springers is a top priority for ESRA.
Meet sweet Archie! This happy old man is a joy to his foster mom and dad, as well as to his canine foster sister. When Archie was taken to a shelter, he needed medical attention to his eye and toe. His toe had to be amputated, but that doesn't slow this guy down! He LOVES to play catch, and the extra exercise is helping build up his muscles again.

Archie didn't have a great start, but his future is looking much brighter now that he has ESRA’S help. Archie does have dry eye syndrome, so he has drops and salve that need to be put into his eyes twice a day, but this guy takes to the routine like a real trouper. He gets a nice treat for sitting so still for his foster mom.

Since moving in with his foster family, Archie has had a haircut. He now gets lots of treats and loads of cuddles. He aims to please, and he just wants a nice comfy home where he can live out his days.

Archie would fit into any environment. He is perfectly content to be the only dog or to live with others. He has gone to doggy daycare, where gets along fine with the other dogs. He actually just follows his own tune and ignores a lot of the craziness at the daycare center. It is unknown how he would be with cats, but with his quiet demeanor, his foster mom doesn't see an issue. Archie also doesn't jump up on furniture, but if you did want him on the couch with you, we're sure he could be persuaded!

If you're looking for a mellow dog who just wants to lie at your feet or follow you from room to room because he loves you, then Archie is the one for you. This sweet guy will bring affection and happiness to his Forever Family. If you think that family might be yours, contact his foster mom at the e-mail address below. You'll be glad you did!

Thinking about bringing Jordy or another wonderful Senior Springer into your family? Read why rescuing Senior Springers is a top priority for ESRA.
We would like to thank Angela Boone of Angela Boone Photography in Roseville, Minnesota for generously donating the photos of Jordy displayed here. Visit her website.
Sweet Jordy was picked up by animal control as he was wandering in the country. Our best guess is that he is around ten or eleven years old. Jordy is a dear senior guy who is adjusting to the indoor life at his foster home and is enjoying it!

Jordy gets along well with the foster family's resident small dogs, and he is learning to live with cats. He will back off quickly if they hiss and stand up to him. Jordy walks perfectly on leash and loves taking strolls, meeting the neighbors along the way. His favorite pastime is sniffing around the fenced yard, but in true Springer fashion, he loves following his person around, too.

Because he can no longer hear and his peripheral vision is impaired, a home without children would be best for Jordy. He does well with hand signals and will Sit, Lie Down, and Stay. As he is deaf, he will need a securely fenced yard to keep him safe. Jordy is truly the sweetest of sweethearts, and he is so easy to have around. Do you have a soft place in your heart and your home for Jordy to spend his retirement years?
