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.

LOOKING FOR A SPRINGER TO CALL YOUR OWN?

Here’s a video designed to show you “in a nutshell” what you can expect from an ESRA Springer. We think a picture is worth a thousand words.

Most of the precious Springers featured in the video have already found their Forever Homes. We hope the one you are looking for is posted here, available in the Southeast today.

THINKING ABOUT BRINGING A SENIOR SPRINGER INTO YOUR FAMILY? Read why rescuing Senior Springers is a top priority for ESRA.
When Tam first came into his foster home, he was scared and hid under the kitchen table. After about two days, Tam felt confident enough to come out and join the rest of the pack. Things have been looking up for him ever since!

Tam is a sweet senior who quickly adapted to the comforts of a home with a clean place to sleep, plenty of food and water and lots of love.

He is currently sharing his space with a young terrier puppy sister and is doing just fine. He is very healthy for a dog his age and is good with other dogs, cats and children.

He is an extremely sweet boy that deserves a good retirement home and a family to call his own. His foster mom says that Tam is "no trouble at all."
Like many of us who are aging, he does have some mild joint pain but it doesn't slow him down.

Tam would love to have a Forever Family who will give him the love he missed in much of his life. He promises to be a sweet and gentle companion in exchange for a soft place to sleep, a scratch on the head and lots of treats!

Tam is healthy, fully vetted and ready to go home.

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

Sweet Lucy is a beautiful Springer pup looking for her Forever Home. Lucy’s foster mom reports she is as sweet as can be and friendly to everyone she meets. She is curious and outgoing and does fine with other dogs. She has not been kid or cat tested, but she’s so submissive that her foster mom doesn’t think she’ll have a problem with little ones or kitties.

Lucy is all Springer pup and therefore very energetic. She will need a Forever Home that can give her all the playtime and exercise she needs. Lucy still needs a little bit of help with her potty training but already sleeps through the night in a dog bed without any accidents. With a little patience, she will undoubtedly be a quick leaner and she is crate trained which will help a lot with that. As with all our pups, her adopter will be required to enroll Lucy in a puppy training class that uses positive reinforcement techniques. Springers will do anything for a treat!

Lucy has a lovely white blaze with an adorable sprinkling of freckles. She has not quite grown into her legs but Lucy doesn’t know that! She is a delight. She loves running in the yard with her canine buddies, exploring, giving and receiving hugs and playing with toys. Everyone who meets her falls in love.

Lucy promises to be a loving, devoted companion to her new adopter. Wouldn’t you like to give Lucy the Forever Home she deserves?

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

I AM the Mighty Quinn. You've read about me. You might have seen me on the news, but this..this is ME! My past is a little scary, but again, I am MIGHTY so here goes.

I was found in the road after being hit head on by a car. I have my own "other" page which you can click on for all the medical details. (The link is right under the heart at the top right of my listing.) The page says I'm Special Needs, but in all honesty I'm just downright special. In spite of all this medical mumbo-jumbo, I am a lover boy and I have so much life to live and so much love to give.

I'm told by many that I am a most handsome liver and white Springer with freckles on my belly and feet. Estimates of my age range from 5 to 7, though I'll never tell. Trust me: The people say I am handsome...they're not kidding.

I am ready for my Forever Home, BUT I will still need to continue my regimen of physical therapy. I'm very good at it. And the people who help me are so nice! Oh and until I am all healed, my therapy is already paid for, so that's a bonus. Lots of people cared about me, so this will cost you only your time. I need shorter walks than most dogs while I heal, but I promise I'm very good at walking on a leash.

I will need to be on supplements for the rest of my life (Dasuquin, herbal joint supplements) and maybe an occasional pain pill as I age (to perfection I should add). If you want a dog who will love and adore you, who wants to be your best friend, and you have the time and the love to help me get all the way better, then this could be the start of something big.

Call. Let's meet. Soon. Real soon.
Love,
Quinn

RueBee was given her name because she is quite the talker. As you can probably guess, Rue-Rue is her favorite song to sing. She is a beautiful black and white girl who came into ESRA with some other family members. She is heartworm negative and up to date on her vaccinations.

Until RueBee came into rescue, she spent her life outside. She is thrilled to now be an inside dog living the good life in her foster home! RueBee would prefer to have her human all to herself. She is currently living with two other female dogs that are as laid back as she is, and she has no problems. She is fine with cats and does well with children over 9 years old. Young children might be too much for this mellow gal. RueBee would be a wonderful companion for a retired adopter or someone who could spend a lot of time with her. Her favorite pastime is hugging up to her foster Mom, trying to convince her it is time for a nap. She is also a great watch dog and will let you know if someone enters the yard.

RueBee’s foster mom reports that she is a sweetheart, outgoing and a very happy girl. RueBee knows the commands “Sit” and “Come” and is completely housetrained. She is discovering love, attention and companionship under ESRA’s care. This lovely girl will Rue-Rue with joy when she is adopted and home at last!

Woof! Woof! I’m Cali and life is good here with my foster mom. I’ve learned new things like my name, “Sit,” “Come,” and “Lay Down.” I’m trying to understand why they keep telling me to “Stay” when all I want to do is be next to them.

I’m very friendly with dogs, but never met the thing mom calls “cats.” The last few weeks I’ve had two teenage girls visiting and I love them so much. They feed me, brush me, snuggle me and let me sleep in the bed.
My humans take me on a walk every night. Grammy has even trained me to walk next to a scooter. I make friends with every dog and person I meet on our walks.

I’m worry I won’t be adopted because I’m a mix and all black but my foster mom says there’s a home for every dog. She assures me I will find a home with humans to love. I look forward to meeting you!


Cali is a Springer mix (likely Springer/Black Lab) who is estimated to be about 6 years old. She came into rescue covered in fleas and ticks and all skin and bones after bring dropped off in a shelter’s after hours area with nothing more than a crate. Thankfully, someone called ESRA and Cali became an official member within 48 hours.

Since being rescued, she has gained some much needed weight. Now that she’s healthy, her fur is soft and shiny, and her bald spots are filling in.
Cali LOVES snuggles, walks and food! She’s a typical “Velcro Springer,” following her foster mother and grandmother around the house, just to ensure they arrive safely at their destination. She can/will lay in your lap or next to you ALL DAY long.

She walks nicely on a leash, until she spots a squirrel or rabbit, normal young Springer behavior. She is good when bathed and brushed, takes treats nicely and goes into her crate for dinner. She has learned basic commands quickly, though it’s hard to stay when there’s so much to do. Of course she is housetrained. Cali is a little scared of storms and hides under/behind furniture.

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

Brody is a sweet, energetic petite Springer mix with a long furry tail that he loves to wag when he hears a happy voice. He knows his name and will come when called. He is an energetic youngster who has been known to chew things, so Brody would benefit from some additional training. A group class situation using positive methods of reinforcement would be ideal for him.

He’ll spend his time in your backyard hunting lizards -- you will never have to worry about a live one getting into your house. He loves everyone he meets but since he has not been around young children, a home with older children who can play and run with him or an active adult family would probably be best. He loves other dogs, too, but will submissively show his tummy when he meets them before getting up to play and run with them (and you if you are willing). At 25 pounds, he is absolutely the sweetest boy you will ever meet who just wants to hunt lizards and cuddle with you at the end of the day.

Brody was heartworm positive when transferred from the shelter to ESRA and had severe lung congestion. With medications and time, he went from a lethargic dog to a Springer full of energy, a complete 180-degree change.

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

Envy is a lovely black and white girl who finds herself looking for a new Forever Home. She is a mellow Springer girl who is happy just to be your shadow. Envy is the embodiment of what we call a Velcro dog. Cuddling on the couch with her people is Envy’s very favorite activity!

She is up to date on her vaccines, heartworm negative and like any Springer, her ears need to be cleaned regularly. Her foster mom thinks she may have been fed people food in the past but she has now adapted to yummy grain-free food that makes her coat shine!

Envy walks well on a leash, is house trained and loves to go for rides in the car. She’s fine with other dogs but mostly ignore them. She is untested with cats. She is such a loving little girl! She still wants the company of her foster mom when she goes outside and we think she will be fine without a fenced yard as long as she is supervised.

Envy would do best in a Forever Home where there is not a lot of activity. She would be perfect for retirees or a family with a quieter lifestyle. She will be a wonderful walking companion, home companion and just a lovely addition to her adopter’s family. One wiggle of that little tail is all you need to fall in love with Envy!

Meet Bama, a cute little Springer/Cocker mix. Despite his name, Bama is originally from Mississippi, and he’d certainly be willing to cheer on the Alabama Crimson Tide or the team of his Forever Family’s choosing.

Bama’s family turned him over to ESRA when they relocated from a country setting with acreage to a more urban environment. This active young guy no longer could safely run free and was unhappy with city life. As a result, he will need a Forever Home with a good-sized fenced yard and some humans willing to play outside with him.

Bama is extremely people-oriented. He knows his name and comes nicely on command and seeks out human companionship. After running off some excess energy, he will happily come indoors when called. He is crate trained and housetrained. Like most Springers, he wants to be in the center of family life. He does need to be the only dog in the family and would do best with adults and older, dog-savvy children.

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

Update 8/23/17: Shelby is a happy, fun loving young dog who gets along great with dogs, cats and people. She loves running around the yard, snuggling with the humans, wrestling and chasing the other dogs in her foster home and swimming in the lake. She is ready to share her love with a Forever Family.


Hi everyone, I’m Shelby and my life has gotten so much better in these last few months! I used to live in a tiny space with many other dogs, some of which were my children and relatives. Then the wonderful folks from ESRA got me out of that place and into a real home. These days, I spend most of my time inside with my foster family. There’s always a warm bed, a bowl of kibble just for me and someone willing to pet me and teach me new things.

Before I got here, I didn’t realize what I was missing. Everything was new and a bit scary. Car rides frightened me at first, but now I have decided they are great fun, so I hop right in and enjoy the ride. I’ve blossomed into a confident, happy dog and am ready for any adventure. Hiking, walking, swimming, boating – let’s do it!

Love, Shelby


Shelby’s foster mom says that Shelby is one of the smartest dogs she has met. Shelby is housetrained, sweet, well-mannered and quickly learned her new name and mastered both “Leave It” and “Come.”

Hi. I'm Tanner. My foster mom says I am really a good boy but I'm shy. I am so shy. I'm the right size for almost any place you live...an apartment, a condo, a house. I will fit right in no matter where we are (you and me).

I am housetrained and I know how to use a doggy door, so I'm smart. But I'm shy. I'm fine once I get to know you and your people, but it will take me a while to warm up. I'm fine in a crate if you want me there and I don't mind cats or other dogs. I really don't. I think I'd like a quieter home and one or two people to live with forever. But I really need you to take time, because I'm shy (did I mention that?) But once I know I can trust you, you'll find the perfect dog hiding under my beautiful coat.

My foster family is working with me and, you know, I'm fine with them now. I go out in the car and I go for ice cream (I LOVE ice cream). Smaller children are a little too busy for me. I'm aged to perfection, but again, prefer the company of adults to children. I am happy, very healthy and can play with toys and always ready to go in the car. I know you're out there looking for me. Here I am. Please, take a chance on me. You won't be sorry.

Call soon.

Love,
Tanner

Simone is a sweet, shy young lady with a gentle spirit. Because of a rough start in life, she needs some extra help overcoming her fears. She is making great progress and is affectionate, loving and most appreciative of human kindness.

Simone is crate trained and finds comfort in her crate, retreating there when she is startled by loud noises and sudden, fast movements. She prefers to spend most of her time indoors.

She would be an excellent candidate for positive reinforcement based training because she is very motivated by treats and human affection. Her foster family is working with her on coming out of the crate when called, walking comfortably on leash (she doesn’t pull quite the opposite she freezes and won’t walk when frightened), and the finer points of housetraining (almost there).

Simone seems more comfortable with women than with men and would likely bond first with her Forever Mom, and then gradually warm up to other family members. We think she would prefer a quiet, adult home or a home with adults and older children; the noisy play of little ones would frighten her. She gets along well with the other dogs in her foster home. She is a beautiful and sweet dog, eager for human bonding. She just needs lots of love, training, and patience.

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

ESRA foster dog Clark wants nothing more than a Forever Home where he can be the main attraction. Clark is a sweet, happy, funny young man who enjoys playing with toys and people, a good romp in the yard and a cozy sofa in the house. In foster care, he entertains himself by pulling his blanket out into the yard through the doggie door and then bringing it back inside with him.

Clark is healthy and handsome, with a shiny and glossy coat. He is housetrained, crate trained, knows basic commands and is a quick learner and generally well-behaved. He responds especially well to a gentle touch and kind words and will seek out his foster mother for some petting.

He needs to be the one and only beloved dog because he'd rather not share all that human attention and he needs a home without children. He would prefer a fenced yard and needs plenty of exercise. He is an energetic young guy but calms down nicely inside. His one issue is that he is very fearful and apprehensive with the vet and groomer, so much that he will fight to get away when restrained.

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

Introducing Layla, a gentle soul who would make a wonderful companion for the right family. Her foster mom describes this lovely senior lady as quiet, loving, sweet and laid back. She doesn’t act like a senior and still has plenty of spunk. She is active and curious and has no trouble hopping up into her foster mom’s truck and heading out for adventure. She had a great time on a recent camping trip and loved hiking, exploring and sniffing all the interesting scents.

Even though Layla has bounced around a bit, she makes friends easily. She approaches visitors with a wagging tail and then sits down and waits for some petting. She gets along fine with other dogs and people of all ages. In her Forever Home, she will need a doggie door or someone home much of the day and willing to take her out for potty breaks. Layla knows her basic commands and walks nicely on her leash. This smart dog has done a little bit of countersurfing and has figured out how to open kitchen drawers and look for snacks.

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

Sweet Lucy is a little lovebug who wants to be with her people every second of the day. She is a textbook example of a Velcro Springer. Lucy loves ALL humans and is very affectionate with anyone who gives her attention. Her foster dad describes her as smart and spunky. She has learned how to open an unsecured gate but has no interest in running away – instead, she races to find her people.

Lucy is quiet in the house, only barking when she hears other dogs start barking. However, if you sing to her, she will join right in with a round of Springer “woo woos” and howling. She enjoys her walks and is learning not to pull. She would do well with some training that uses positive reinforcement because she is so eager to please.

Lucy does need to be an only dog or introduced carefully to a potential doggie sibling. This little lady is not sure why she should have to share the human attention with other dogs. Also, children in the home need to be 12 or older. She will make a wonderful, loyal, loving companion for a lucky adopter!

Meet Nash, a happy, active and extraordinarily handsome tri-colored Springer boy in search of his Forever Family. Nash is always up for a walk, run or romp in the yard. He is friendly to all people, housetrained and knows some basic commands.

Nash does have one issue – he is food aggressive. He gets overly excited at mealtime and will protect and defend his food. His foster dad has been hand-feeding Nash and has seen some improvement in this behavior, but ongoing training may be necessary. If Nash is the only dog in his Forever Home, he simply needs to be left alone and undisturbed while eating his kibble.

Nash is a sensitive fellow who wants to please. He is a good watchdog but has been happy to meet and greet neighbors and visitors to his foster home. He would rather not be crated but behaves well when left home alone uncrated.

His ideal family would be an active one. He has lots of energy and enthusiasm and would make a great partner for daily runs or long walks. A fenced yard would be a plus. Because of his food guarding issues, he needs to be in a household without small children. Nash does well with other dogs after a proper introduction and seemed to ignore a cat that wandered into his yard. While we think he’d do best as an only dog, he would also do fine with another friendly dog and dog-savvy parents.

Please consider sharing your life and home with this fun-loving boy!

English Springer Rescue America’s mission is threefold: rescue, rehabilitate and rehome. Cyrus is a perfect example of these efforts.

First, he was rescued from poor living conditions with a group of other dogs. (Phelps, Shelby and Simone are his relatives). The first stop was the veterinarian’s, where he was examined, neutered and underwent heartworm treatment.

Second came the rehabilitation. Since Cyrus has basically only known kennel life and was poorly socialized, it is taking some time for him to get comfortable with the things most pet dogs take for granted, like the normal sights and sounds of people cooking, cleaning, talking and laughing. He has learned how to use the doggie door and to go into his kennel for meals and treats.

Now it is time for the rehoming portion of Cyrus’ journey. This young man needs a patient Forever Family willing to help him relax and settle in. Because he is still timid, he would do best in an adult home with a fenced yard to explore. He is getting along well with his foster siblings so would probably enjoy the company of another friendly dog.

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

Handsome Humphrey has been in foster care for a while, getting healthy after suffering the effects of neglect. We are happy to report that he is now feeling great, heartworm-free and ready to find his very own Forever Family.

Humphrey is a sweet and trusting guy who adores people and attention. He is housetrained, crate trained and well-behaved in general. He also loves riding in the car and would make a great copilot for running errands, going to the park or even taking a roadtrip.

Because he is particular about his canine friends, Humphrey will need a meet-and-greet session with potential canine brothers or sisters. He would do well as an only dog.

Humphrey does have a chronic condition and will require prescription dog food, fresh water and a doggie door for easy access to the outdoors. His activity level is moderate and he does not require a large yard, just room enough to stretch his legs.

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

Hello, my name is Addie! I spent a great deal of my life in a backyard but my foster mom is amazed at my dignified manners. I surprised everybody by knowing "Sit," "Off," and "No." I really showed my stuff when I walked in the local park with my two foster sisters and brother. My foster mom had all of us walking together and in the same direction. Everybody that went by us was impressed. She says I walk better on a leash than my foster siblings.

I love to watch for birds, squirrels, and rabbits. I have a high prey drive and Mom won't let me chase them. My previous owner also said I did not get along with cats.

I am a love bug and I will curl right up next to you to make sure you know you are loved. I am very smart and I pick up on routines and commands quickly.

I think I would like someone who stays at home most of the time. I sleep in a crate at night but don't really like it. My foster mom says it is for the best while in foster care and I have to take her word for it!

She also thinks it is best if I am in a one-dog family as I would prefer to get all of the attention to make up for those years in the backyard.

Love, Addie

Age:7 years
Gender:Male
Color:Liver & White
Weight:60 lbs
Variety:Mix
Barley heard what great Forever Homes ESRA finds for Springers, so he put on his best "Springer Pretender" hat so we could help find one for him! He's been thinking for quite a while how to describe his perfect home — here's what he wants you to know:

He just loves treats and riding in car, but would rather not be groomed.

He is not much for toys, but he just loves snow! He could run and burrow and play in it all day. (No one has told him that it doesn't snow much down here in the Southeast.)

He would love to be the only dog in the family — and certainly doesn't want to live with a cat!

He prefers a quiet, mellow environment without the hustle and bustle of kids and their activities.

He's amusing and enjoys the companionship of his people, but he is not a "velcro dog."

Does he appear to be the right dog for you? If this sounds like what you can offer Barley, he hopes you will consider him!
