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.

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.

Meet Amazing Grace! Her name says it all. With a disposition of sweetness, kindness, gentleness and love, she is pretty much a perfect dog.

Gracie was surrendered by her owners to a shelter, due to a major life change and the owners’ hectic travel schedule and inability to take proper care of her. When we picked Gracie up at the shelter, she was very frightened and scared. Any sudden movements would cause her to flinch and we could tell she had a rough time. But after a gentle and gradual introduction to her foster family's two older dogs, Gracie quickly adjusted.

Gracie is 11 years old and although she’s a senior, she is active for her age and enjoys going for walks in the neighborhood and chasing after tennis balls. She is fully housetrained, up to date on all shots and has no medical issues. She looks thin for her size but has a healthy appetite and we believe she will be at an appropriate weight in no time! She comes when called and will sit when asked, although she seems to have some loss of hearing. We haven’t discovered any bad habits and she has been very obedient and learned the flow of the household and where her place is very quickly.

We’ve never heard Gracie bark. She seems like a quiet soul who expresses herself with her beautiful big brown eyes. She has so much sweetness in her tiny body and loves to give kisses if you let her. She enjoys belly rubs and loves getting attention and does well riding in the car.

Having Gracie as a companion would make some individual a very lucky person. She has a lot of love left to give. If you want a loving, sweet, and gentle dog who enjoys being around people and seems truly thankful, then Gracie is the perfect dog for you.

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

THINKING ABOUT BRINGING A SENIOR SPRINGER INTO YOUR FAMILY? Read why rescuing Senior Springers is a top priority for ESRA.
Introducing Cricket, a lovely senior with impeccable manners and a nice, calm disposition. Her foster mom says she is the Springer version of Lady from the Disney movie Lady and the Tramp.

Cricket is exceptionally easy to be around. She is affectionate without being clingy, content most of the time to nap in the sunshine, beside you on the sofa or on her dog bed. However, she will use her voice occasionally to let you know if there’s something she needs or wants. Of course she is fully housetrained and trustworthy when no one is home. Because she is deaf, her foster family is teaching her some hand signals.

Miss Cricket LOVES her walks! One of her quirks is that she is absolutely determined to walk to the far right of the street or sidewalk, hugging the curb. We wonder if she has had a close call with a vehicle in the past. (She’s also more than happy to splash through every possible puddle.) She is a power walker, moving along at a brisk pace. This is likely why she is so trim and fit for her age. She is also curious enough about the outdoors that if an opportunity like an open door presented itself, she would take off on her own.

She is a timid eater and never rushes for the food bowl. Cricket insists on taking her time and eating one kibble at a time. However, she will happily accompany you to the refrigerator for the chance at a piece of cheese, even if there's a pill in that cheese.

Keeping with her ladylike demeanor, her reaction to anyone who approaches her is to sit and raise her left paw in greeting. She does this every single time.

Cricket’s ideal Forever Family would have patience and a gentle touch. Because she is deaf, she startles easily. For this reason, she does need a peaceful home without small children. She has reportedly had some issues with small, yippy dogs in the past but gets along just fine with the three Springers in her foster home. We think she would do well as an only dog or with another laid-back dog. She does NOT understand that cats make lovely indoor pets, so we recommend a home without cats. She will make a wonderful companion for the right family.

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

From what I hear, I’m pretty much a perfect Springer boy. I love to run and play but when I am finally tuckered out I love to climb on my foster Dad’s lap and cuddle. No doubt, you have noticed that I am a head turner. My gorgeous, shiny, black and white coat only adds to my good looks. My big brown eyes are like reflective pools...OK, maybe I am going too far with that one.

I love every human I meet and every dog is my new best friend. My foster family thinks it is awfully cute that I even love to give kisses to the resident cat. I’m the whole package!

Here is where I get serious. I was hit by a car and my leg was broken. It was not attended to until a wonderful lady brought me to her Vet. They tried really hard but could not save my leg. They call me a tripod now but it certainly does not stop me from doing what other dogs do. Playing ball is one of my favorite activities and I will bring the ball right back to you. Of course that means I want you to throw it again! I am a good boy for the vet and the groomer; I am crate trained and learning basic commands. Not pulling on the leash is one of newest challenges but we are working on that.

I will need a fenced yard to keep me safe but also to run and play to my heart’s content. My perfect Forever Home would probably be one with kids to play with or active adopters who will include me in their outdoor adventures. I might like dock diving and would probably make a great therapy dog. My possibilities are endless.

I know my Forever Home is out there and I can’t wait to meet you. I promise to be the best boy and I know we will love each other forever!

Love, Noah

Looking for a loving companion to spice up your life for years to come? Look no further than our darling spice-inspired litter of eight little Springer mix puppies.

Mama Queenie was rescued in early April in Louisiana, and quickly transported to an experienced Florida foster home just a few days before the puppies arrived. These fast-growing little pups are almost five weeks old (born April 13) and will be available for adoption in mid-June. It appears that the father may have been a Labrador Retriever.

The litter of eight pups includes four boys and four girls. Ginger and Annatto are the cream-colored females. Sage and Cayenne are the black females. Meric and Saffron are the cream-colored males while Licorice and Basil are the males with black coats.

After they are adopted out, Queenie will undergo heartworm treatment. She will be available later this summer after she receives a clean bill of health.

Important notes about puppies:

We do not place puppies as presents or surprises. The entire prospective adopting family needs to meet their potential puppy. Also, please remember that puppies require a lot of care, attention, and training, and they do chew on things. The decision to get a puppy and raise it to be a healthy, happy, and well-adjusted dog is a serious commitment.

Because these puppies are so young, they will be placed on a spay/neuter contract. This means that in addition to the regular adoption fee, a monetary deposit will be required, and it will be refundable when proof of spay or neuter is supplied to ESRA.

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

A good Samaritan found Riley running amuck and turned him into an Alabama shelter. Even though it is pretty obvious that either Mom or Dad was a hound dog, he’s now an honorary ESRA Springer!

Riley’s foster mom reports he is great with her two rescued Springers. Even though the resident female is taking her time accepting him, his puppy charm is winning her over. Riley is very sweet, happy and all puppy. As with all our puppies, we will ask Riley’s adopter to enroll him in a basic puppy training class. As playful and exuberant as he is, all puppies need some structure and manners.

Playing is, of course, Riley’s favorite pastime. He loves all toys and when his idea of a toy is not the same as his foster mom's idea of a toy, he listens and minds when told no. Like any Springer puppy, Riley will require lots of exercise and stimulation. He’s probably do best with a fenced yard so he can run and play to his heart’s content. He would do just fine with another friendly dog in the household. He has not been around children or cats but his foster mom thinks he might be great with kids. An active family could be the perfect fit.

Riley is neutered, up to date on all his inoculations and healthy as can be. He is currently on puppy food since the vet feels he can put on a few more pounds.

Riley is looking for a Forever Home that will give him all the love and attention he needs. Riley is a special boy and we know there is an adopter out there who is just as special!

What a pretty, happy dog Callie is! She is a lovely, petite, liver and white girl whose favorite activity is playing with toys, toys and more toys. Callie will fetch a ball and bring it back to her foster mom. She knows most basic commands such as "Sit," "Wait," "Stop" and she walks well on a leash.

Callie is a Velcro dog. She is a sweet girl who loves to ride in the car and thinks everyone she meets is her new best friend. She is untested with children and leery of the resident cats. She pretty much ignores them. She is good with other dogs and greeted dogs at the gate when she visited the dog park.

When Callie came into rescue, she’d had a urinary tract infection for over a year, requiring surgery. Her foster Mom says she is now housetrained. Most rescue dogs need a period of adjustment to feel secure – but they are worth it.

Callie will definitely need a fenced yard and will have to be kept inside when left alone. We also feel strongly she should be crated when alone because she currently has some separation anxiety. A little positive training should also help her adjust. Callie will fit in perfectly with an adopter who is retired, or works from home.

Callie has been through a lot of changes recently and is waiting (not so patiently she says) for a Forever Home. This wonderful girl is going to make someone very happy and provide unconditional love and a sweet disposition for her lucky adopter!

CLICK THIS LINK IF YOU WANT TO KNOW MORE ABOUT BONDED PAIRS AND THE BENEFITS OF ADOPTING THESE SPECIAL BEST FRIENDS TOGETHER.
Kaya came into rescue with her best pal Boomer. Kaya and Boomer are a bonded pair since they have always lived together and are inseparable.

Kaya loves to be outside in her foster family’s yard and is determined to rid the world of lizards. She is making some progress but since she is in Florida, she still has a long way to go. She also loves to spend hours playing with Boomer. Kaya is an active 6-year-old with lots of Springer energy. Once inside, she is happy to relax and cuddle. Her foster mom reports that she is a happy, sweet girl.

Kaya is spayed and is up to date on her all her vaccinations. She has received a clean bill of health (she could stand to lose a few pounds to keep her girlish figure) but is otherwise ready to go to her new home.

Boomer is Kaya’s best friend and playmate. Boomer’s favorite activity in the world is having his tummy rubbed by his humans. As with Kaya, he is housetrained and also up to date with his vaccinations. He’s a healthy, loving boy.

Neither Kaya nor Boomer has been around cats or children, but so far they have been wonderful with everyone they meet.

Why have just one Springer when you can have two? Kaya and Boomer offer double the pleasure and double the love and affection. All they need now is a loving Forever Home!

THINKING ABOUT ADOPTING BOTH PUMPKIN AND BUTTONS? Read more about bonded pairs and the benefits of adopting these special best friends together.
Introducing our newest dynamic duo, Pumpkin and Buttons! The girls are two peas in a pod and what we call a bonded pair. We would love to place them together. Both girls are housetrained but certainly need work on their leash manners and should be watched, at first, for counter surfing.

Their perfect adoptive home will have a fenced yard where the girls can run, play and enjoy a favorite pastime – looking for those pesky gray critters with the long bushy tails. Pumpkin will patiently sit beneath a tree if she spots one up in the branches. Not that anyone has ever observed her actually catching one, but she seems to realize patience is a virtue.

Pumpkin comes when called, shakes and goes into her crate on command. The first night in her foster home, she was very timid. Within a day she was more confident and is now part of the resident dog pack. We do not know how Pumpkin will do with small children since there are none in her foster home and she is untested with cats.

Her foster dad describes Pumpkin as docile, sweet and loving. She is up to date on her vaccinations and healthy. Having lived in a condo for a month, she has added some pounds to her girlish figure. However, with a yard to run and play in she will be back to her perfect weight in no time.

Buttons has many of the same traits as her littermate, Pumpkin. She is loving, sweet and a little bit Velcro. She loves to be at her person’s side.

Like Pumpkin, she would like a fenced backyard with room to run. She is an active girl and would like an active Forever Family (with squirrels in the yard for her to chase). When she is not outside, she likes to watch the world go by from the window, probably planning her next escapade in the yard.

Buttons knows come, sit and shake and is crate trained. She needs some work on her leash training and her adoptive family will need to work on her counter surfing.

If you have a fenced yard and an active lifestyle, Pumpkin and Buttons might be the right dogs for you! Wouldn’t you like to double your pleasure and your fun with tthese lovely little field bred Springer girls?

Looking for a loving companion to spice up your life for years to come? Look no further than our darling spice-inspired litter of eight little Springer mix puppies.

Mama Queenie was rescued in early April in Louisiana, and quickly transported to an experienced Florida foster home just a few days before the puppies arrived. These fast-growing little pups are almost five weeks old (born April 13) and will be available for adoption in mid-June. It appears that the father may have been a Labrador Retriever.

The litter of eight pups includes four boys and four girls. Ginger and Annatto are the cream-colored females. Sage and Cayenne are the black females. Meric and Saffron are the cream-colored males while Licorice and Basil are the males with black coats.

After they are adopted out, Queenie will undergo heartworm treatment. She will be available later this summer after she receives a clean bill of health.

Important notes about puppies:

We do not place puppies as presents or surprises. The entire prospective adopting family needs to meet their potential puppy. Also, please remember that puppies require a lot of care, attention, and training, and they do chew on things. The decision to get a puppy and raise it to be a healthy, happy, and well-adjusted dog is a serious commitment.

Because these puppies are so young, they will be placed on a spay/neuter contract. This means that in addition to the regular adoption fee, a monetary deposit will be required, and it will be refundable when proof of spay or neuter is supplied to ESRA.

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

Hello, I’m Skipper. If I do say so myself I am a gorgeous, liver tri-colored Springer. At only 5 years old I am a lively, playful, boy. I certainly need fattening up and I love those extra rations I am receiving. I love to ride in the car and I love to meet other four-legged friends...of the canine species, of course. I have not been around children yet, nor have I been tested with cats.

I know basic commands like Sit and Stay and I am a very good boy on a leash. I am a pleasure to walk and no doubt will turn heads when out and about at my new Forever Home. Nothing I can do about my good looks. I just bask in the glory. Sigh.

I love tennis balls and will play fetch all day if you are up to it. Of course, when it is time to stop, I love to be inside with my foster parents. I am not a clingy or needy boy and I am very happy to curl up in my bed and take a little nap. I can still get a bit scared when something unfamiliar comes along but I am learning to enjoy new things.

I am up to date on my vaccines and a healthy guy, other than needing to put on a few pounds. As I wrote before, like any Springer, I am enjoying my foster family’s efforts to do so very much.

I would be happy in a Forever Home with other dogs or as the king of my castle. Everyone tells me what a good boy I am. I just can’t wait for a home of my own and to meet my new family!

Love, Skipper

Have you ever seen a puppy more adorable than Isla? Chances are, you will say no. This little girl appears to have bit of terrier in her mix, which you can see in that cute face. She is irresistible!

Isla visited the vet last week and received her first round of puppy shots. Her foster parents and the vet agree that she is one sweet, loving pup. It has been reported that snuggling and cuddling are two of her favorite pastimes! She is great with the resident Springers at her foster home and even the kitty cat. She is a smart little girl too. Isla learned to use the doggie door at her foster home within 24 hours and already uses it to go out and go potty.

Her Forever Home will need to continue to reinforce her training as she is still a puppy. As with any pup, she has a lot of energy and will need an active family. Her foster mom reports she hops and leaps through the house and even climbed up one level of the cat tower. We think she would be a good candidate for agility, dock diving or any other canine sports. As with all our rescued puppies, we require Isla’s adopter enroll her in puppy training classes. This will ensure she is socialized, learns basic commands and is a well mannered addition to her new family.

Isla sleeps in her crate; she makes a little noise at first but settles down in a few minutes. She is also crated when her foster parents are out of the house to keep her from typical puppy mischief.

Isla is such a good girl. Her Forever Home will have so much fun with this active pup as she blossoms into a lovely young lady!

Introducing Georgia’s polite and ladylike girl, Betty. Miss Betty is incredibly well-behaved, sweet, quiet and gentle. She is totally housetrained, comes when called and would never even consider countersurfing or causing any mischief.

Betty has a lot of love to share with the right Forever Family. She just wants to be with her people. She’s quite smart and learned her foster home’s household routine right away. She is accustomed to lounging on the furniture and is hoping her adopters will make room on the couch.

Betty would be happiest as an only dog, soaking up all the human attention. However with some patience, she has learned to get along with the other dogs in her foster home. She seems fond of the cat and follows him around, hoping he will consider a game of chase.

She does well with the teens and adults in her foster home, giving excited greetings when family members come home. She is right at the door to welcome visitors but is also a dedicated watchdog, barking at strangers when no one is home.

Betty does have a cataract in one eye and suffers from allergies, which are controlled with daily Apoquel, a medication that costs approximately $35 per month.

Won’t you consider adding this pretty nine-year-old girl to your family? Betty promises to be a loving and easy companion.

THINKING ABOUT BRINGING A SENIOR SPRINGER INTO YOUR FAMILY? Read why rescuing Senior Springers is a top priority for ESRA.
Jamie was found as a stray, so his entire prior life is a blank slate. His foster family can tell you about his present life. He’s as sweet as can be -- very calm and very quiet. He rarely barks and never gets up on the furniture.

He’s a true Velcro dog who follows his humans around whenever they’re on the move. If they’re outside, he’s outside. If they’re inside, he’s inside. If they’re watching TV, he simply settles down on his bed in the living room to snooze. When they go to bed at night, he transfers to his bed in the bedroom.

Jamie has a great appetite and gets along with his five foster siblings. He is deaf, but he’s usually so close by, all you have to do is gesture what you want, and he does it. His general health seems good, but since there’s no backup information, he is being screened for various things. So far, all results are good. He’s looking for a very laid back Forever Family.

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.

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.

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.

Sweet Bella is looking for a Forever Family with lots of love to share. She was primarily an outdoor dog, but has now discovered the joys of indoor family life in foster care. Human attention is her number one priority; in fact, if the petting stops for too long, she will whine to let her people know that she’s ready for more!

Bella likes going on walks to meet and greet the neighbors. She is very outgoing and friendly. She has a moderate energy level. After a walk around the neighborhood, her favorite thing to do is cuddle on the couch with her people, laying her head in an available lap. Treats are also much appreciated.

Bella is smart and has learned a lot in foster care. She has mastered “Sit,” “Stay” and “Place” and is working on “Shake,” “Down” and “Roll Over.”

Although she would rather hang out with humans than other dogs, Bella gets along well with her canine foster brother. Now that she has mastered housetraining, she stays with her brother while the humans are away. She will whine when crated.

Rudy is a sweet young Springer/Cocker Spaniel mix with tons of energy and a free spirit. He is athletic and loves to run and chase his ball and play with other friendly, active dogs. He came into rescue because his puppy-like high energy level was too much for his elderly owners. He is in need of an active Forever Family with a fenced yard where he can safely expend some of his energy.

Rudy knows some basic commands and stays in his crate when no one is home. With his nice leash manners, he would make a great companion for jogging, long walks or hikes. He will bring you a ball when he thinks it is time to play.

Rudy does bark and jump in excitement, so he might do best with older children or adults; little ones might be scared of the barking or accidentally knocked down. He is friendly with everyone and calms down nicely after greeting new people. He would benefit from some further obedience training. He has been known to countersurf and use his voice to make his demands/requests known.

Rudy suffers from Cherry Eye, a common and easily correctable eye condition that will be surgically repaired before his adoption. He is headed to the veterinary ophthalmologist and we expect a full recovery.

Human companionship is at the top of Rudy’s wishlist. He has a great personality and just wants to be next to his people. If you want an energetic companion dog, Rudy may just be the one for you!

Introducing Louisiana’s newest bonded pair, Thor and Lucy. Despite some recent changes in their life, this dynamic duo is happy, upbeat and curious. They are young at heart and ready to bond with a lucky Forever Family.

Thor and Lucy are healthy, housetrained and generally well behaved. Leash walking is relatively new to them, but they are making progress; both dogs are smart and want to please. They get along well with other dogs and enjoy meeting and greeting new people.

Thor is a bit of a clown, whose hobby is chasing bugs outside and watching folks walk up and down the sidewalk at the gate. His sister Lucy is friendly and outgoing, a bit of a watchdog and the more assertive of the two dogs.

Their foster dad describes the duo this way: Thor is a sweet-natured, gentle boy, who likes being rubbed and with his people. He’s spirited, fun loving and playful. Lucy is a sweet, gentle , loving girl. She is moderately active and would be a wonderful companion.

They have been together all of their lives, and we wouldn’t dream of separating the siblings! Won’t you consider opening up your heart and home to both Thor and Lucy?

She will make a loyal and loving companion for the right adopter. She is a good girl who knows some basic commands. And she is as strikingly beautiful as she is sweet, with a primarily black coat with some white and tan mixed in.

Because she so badly wants all the human attention, Arrie will sometimes growl a little to warn other dogs to get out of the way. But she is also young and playful and has worked things out with the other dogs in her foster home. In fact, her video clip shows her trying to get her Brittany foster sister to play. She has not been tested with cats, but her foster dad thinks she would probably tolerate them fine.

Arribelle came into rescue with bladder stones, but they have resolved and she is feeling wonderful. She will need to eat prescription food to prevent future issues.

THINKING ABOUT BRINGING A SENIOR SPRINGER INTO YOUR FAMILY? Read why rescuing Senior Springers is a top priority for ESRA.
Despite a rough life, 10-year-old Teddy is upbeat, gentle and appreciative of the care and affection he is now receiving in foster care. Teddy is blind and deaf – but that doesn’t slow him down. He has settled in beautifully and initially surprised his foster mom by finding his way in from the yard, through the doggie door, and back into his crate. In fact, he has never even spilled a drop from the water bowl he passes on his way back inside.

Teddy has a healthy appetite and is housetrained. Throughout treatment for some skin issues and medical conditions (including daily ophthalmic ointment applied for dry eyes), he has remained cheerful and cooperative. On nice days, he enjoys spending some time outside in the sunshine.

His foster mom says Teddy is “sweet, patient, house trained, smart, and never complains.” He is looking for a patient Forever Family who will help him settle in and navigate new surroundings. In return, he has lots of love to share!

Tinker had a rough start as one of a group of dogs rescued from a hoarding situation in Florence, AL, more than a year ago. She has blossomed in foster care after receiving some needed veterinary treatment and a whole lot of human kindness. Now this sweet older lady is ready to find her Forever Home.

These days, Tinker is living the good life. She is happy, friendly and energetic and plays nicely with another small dog in her foster home. Despite her age and smaller stature, she will jump over a baby gate to follow her foster mom. As long as she is with her favorite human, she is calm and content and will stay close and nap. Tinker is friendly with other dogs and not interested in the cats she has met at the local vet clinic.

Her number one need in a Forever Home is human companionship. She’s not a dog who needs tons of exercise or a large space to run; a smaller enclosed courtyard or patio area would be just fine with Tinker. She just needs regular potty breaks and, of course, love and attention.

Now recovered from some serious eye injuries, Sadie is thriving and happy at her foster home. Sadie has also completed heartworm treatment and is feeling much better. She likely had several litters of puppies in her previous life. Now that she is spayed, she has officially retired from breeding. Unfortunately nothing could be done to restore her vision. However, she is comfortable, upbeat and adjustable and learned her way around quickly in foster care, even using a pet door to go out in the yard.

Sadie is quite friendly with people. While she does need some work on leash walking, she will walk right beside her human if you continually coax her by talking to her. She gets very excited at feeding time and will bark in anticipation. She is crate trained and housetrained and goes out through the pet door into the yard. She gets along fine with most other dogs, as long as they are understanding if she accidentally bumps into them. In fact, she would love to have a new doggie best friend in her Forever Home.

Sadie would do best in a single-story home with easy access to a small court or back yard and with another submissive dog as a companion. As long as the furniture placement remains constant, blind dogs quickly learn the lay of the land. She would thrive in a quiet home with an owner who is home much of the time and willing to provide a house sitter so Sadie can stay in her own environment if her Forever Family needs to travel.

Won't you consider giving this loving girl a home to call her own? She is a sweet, deserving dog who would make a wonderful, loyal companion for the right family.

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.

Oh my goodness, look at this face! This is Finn. He is happy, active, goofy, and very affectionate. Finn lives and gets along well with other dogs; however he really likes his people the most. Finn will do well living with other dogs. His requirements for a home are quite simple: just give him plenty of attention and daily exercise. He will follow you around the house, lie under your feet, and even watch TV with you -- in your lap if invited.

One of Finn’s biggest thrills is to play ball! Oh yes. He loves those green fuzzy tennis balls and would love to have his house decorated in them. In foster care, his family has learned how to politely manage Finn and his desire to have a tennis ball close by. He is the best retriever on land and on sea. He loves to run off leash on the beach as well as inside dog parks.

Finn is great with all age children. Finn has a very low prey drive so no need to worry about the bird population decreasing! He is housetrained, will use a crate if needed, and knows all basic commands. Finn exhibits excellent manners at the dinner table. He is fine with cats. He walks well on a leash. He rides very well in a car and is quite happy to go anywhere you are.

Do consider this most precious gentle boy for your home. Finn will in turn warm your heart as he really has the biggest one of them all.
