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.

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.

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

Fenway's vet bills have accumulated to the point that we are asking for donations to assist him. If you would like to make a donation to ESRA specifically for Fenway (2016-126AZ), make sure to indicate his name and intake number when you do so. Please click here to reach our Donations page to help Fenway. Fenway will cheer for you!
Newsflash! Fenway’s no longer on the “injured” list and he is all set to play! He has completed his rehab and is ready for adoption! 

This gentleman came to ESRA with one torn ACL and soon needed surgery on both knees. He has now recovered from two TPLO (tibial plateau leveling osteotomy) surgeries. This has become one of the most popular orthopedic surgeries performed on dogs who have torn an ACL. The philosophy behind the TPLO surgery is to completely change the dynamics of the dog’s knee so that the torn ligament becomes irrelevant to the stability of the knee itself.

Both of these were expensive procedures, and he could use a little help. 

Fenway can be shy at first, but once he gets to know you, he warms up quickly and is a real lover. He has met children, and seems to like them. He gets along great with other dogs and with cats.

Fenway can be anxious when he gets groomed or goes to the vet, but otherwise he is a super sweet, happy boy. His vet said that he can do almost anything except agility exercises following his surgeries. He can work up to long walks and increasingly challenging hikes; swimming is excellent exercise for Fenway as well. 

This boy is ready and able to go to his Forever Home. Could you be Fenway’s new teammate and coach?

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

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.

ESRA#:2015-334CO
Status: Adoption Pending
  
Age:8 years
Gender:Male
Color:Liver & White
Weight:50 lbs
Variety:Field
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 Ranger and Tucker? Then read about bonded pairs and the benefits of adopting these special best friends.
Ranger and Tucker are a happy pair of Springers looking for a Forever Home so they can stay together. These sweet boys were rescued from a homeless person, but sadly the family that rescued them found out that Mom is allergic to dogs. They turned to ESRA for help finding a Forever Home that will keep this pair together.

Ranger is liver and white and estimated to be four years old. He does well with other dogs, likes children but is unknown with cats. Ranger has a full tail, is playful and energetic. Ranger is the leader of the pack and is always looking for an adventure.

Tucker is also liver and white and while mostly Springer, we think there may be a bit of Brittany thrown in the mix. Tucker also does well with other dogs and likes children. He has not been tested with cats. Tucker is the follower and very happy to snuggle with Ranger or follow him to whatever adventure awaits.

These two are as sweet as can be, and their foster mom reports that every time she has them out for a walk, someone comments on how beautiful they are. Both boys are very snuggly and, in typical Springer fashion, love those tummy rubs. They are house trained, crate trained and do well at the groomers. A securely-fenced yard is a must, as they do try to dig and go looking for adventures.  

Ranger and Tucker are both neutered, microchipped and up to date on all preventative vaccinations. 

If you would like to meet Ranger and Tucker, please fill out an adoption application today.

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

Thinking about bringing Lizzie or another wonderful Senior Springer into your family? Read why rescuing Senior Springers is a top priority for ESRA.
Are you an active senior looking for an active dog?  Then please consider our Springers for Seniors program and our new arrival, Lizzie!  This beauty may be exactly the companion you’re looking for!

Lizzie has been well cared for by her loving family who is, unfortunately, moving overseas.  While they would love to take Lizzie with them, they aren’t sure that’s the best option for this vibrant, active girl.  Lizzie needs room to run and play.  She enjoys short runs or long walks as well as playing ball.  When playtime is over, Lizzie enjoys curling up next to you where she can soak up all the love you have to give. 

This obedient girl is friendly with everyone she meets.  She gets along well with other dogs and also cats. She is crate trained, but there’s really no need to crate her because she’s completely house trained.  She can wait about six hours before needing to go outside. 

Lizzie is spayed, current on vaccinations, heartworm negative and microchipped.  As with any senior, she does have a few health conditions such as arthritis and some hearing loss.  She has received regular dentals and had ACL surgeries in 2014 and 2015 on her rear legs.  She was diagnosed with a Level II heart murmur in 2013, but she does not require medication.  Her vet discovered a benign tumor in her stomach in 2015 which requires her to eat small kibble or canned food.  She is also given a cranberry supplement for her bladder. We have been able to obtain Lizzie’s medical records and will be happy to share that information with her new foster family or adopter.

Lizzie is a smart, happy girl who is full of life and ready for her next adventure!  She’s waiting just for you!

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 Lizzie.

Meet our stunning supermodel, Bella Marie!  Hard to take your eyes off that gorgeous face of hers!  Not only is she drop-dead gorgeous, she is one very cool Springer girl!

Bella is a very, very young nine years old -- she is lean, very athletic and in amazing shape.  She loves to run, chase squirrels up trees, retrieve her tennis ball, swim and anything else a field girl would enjoy.  In the house, she is the world's sweetest snuggle bug, her head -- or more likely her entire body -- on your lap.  She loves sleeping in her foster mom's bed at night.

Bella has been the loveliest of guests.  She is beyond perfect with all other dogs, submissive and non-confrontational to all.  She is also known to be good with cats.  There's nothing that Bella enjoys more than playing fetch with her tennis ball.  In fact, she is obsessed with it!  She will chase down her ball for hours, will bring it back and drop it in front of you, and will leap four feet and catch it mid-air.  She is absolutely amazing!  When play time is over, the ball MUST be put out of sight.

We've almost gotten her severe ear and urinary tract infections behind us.  Because of her history with ongoing painful ear infections, Bella arrived very leery of us approaching her ears.  After some work, she is far more comfortable with her ears being handled.

Bella is spayed, current on all vaccinations and tested negative for heartworms. She is on monthly heartworm and flea prevention and she is microchipped.  Her teeth have also been cleaned.

We would love to find a home for Bella where her family has lots of time for her.  She would love lots of outdoor activities where she can truly be a Springer girl, having room to run, nice long daily walks, perhaps a swimming area, and of course all the love in the world.  Please email her foster family if you can give Bella all that she deserves.

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.

Georgie is a one-of-a-kind Springer with sparkling hazel eyes. He may be a little guy, but he has a giant heart.

He loves, loves, loves people. Once he gets to know you, he wants you to hug and cuddle on him, especially children. Georgie is a bit shy at first and takes time to warm up, but this cuddlebug is completely worth the wait.

Georgie wasn’t well socialized early in life, but in his foster family he has spent time out in the big wide world going to stores and parks and meeting new friends. Georgie is now learning that strangers are just future best friends. Georgie will never leave your side once he knows you’re his person. His big hazel eyes are full of love and trust, looking very serious, which is deceptive because he is so goofy and fun-loving.

Although young, he has quickly learned to read the temperature of the room and will settle down quickly for nap when appropriate. He will also be keen to go for a romp when you’re ready, though! Short bursts of activity, like tug of war, runs around the yard, or chasing a ball seem to satisfy his exercise needs. The perfect home for Georgie is one where he has some company most of the time and another dog to hang out with. He loves children and would be a great family dog. He’s also great with cats and other dogs, and will try to entice even the grumpiest of pups into a romp with him in the yard. Although crate trained, he would love to share a bed with you!

This beautiful boy is happy, healthy, and ready for his new home. He’s microchipped, neutered and current on all his vaccines.

Georgie is a total sweetheart that loves easily and is easy to love. Be warned: once he looks into your eyes, you've likely got yourself a dog. If you're ready, come meet him!

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.

Meet our fabulous Cisco! He is a beauty -- tall, leggy, lean and majestic. Always wearing a smile, he loves life. He is an exuberant and stunning athlete; he prances with the most beautiful gait. We believe he is likely a mix of field-bred Springer, English Setter and Brittany. He is of excellent temperament and a wonderfully sociable and outgoing boy!

His favorite pastimes are "hunting" in the backyard. Sometimes we wonder how he doesn't run into anything as his head and eyes are always looking up in the trees for critters. He loves his stuffed toys and is always toting one in his mouth around the house. He would make the most phenomenal companion with an "outdoorsman"— a best buddy and sidekick for running, hiking and hunting. He is also a loving, affectionate boy who cannot get enough of your attention. 

He has come such a long way in foster care, but his Forever Family will need to continue with his training and leash skills. He is housetrained and crate trained but still a young dog who can get into trouble. He is best suited for older children given his size and exuberance. He is not a good candidate for a home with cats. He gets along famously with other dogs but preferably he will be placed with a female dog or as an only dog.

Cisco is very healthy, neutered, current on all his vaccinations and microchipped. We are, though, still trying to add a bit of weight on him.

Cisco will be a dream dog for the right owner. Please reach out to his Case Manager if Cisco appears to be a perfect match for you.

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.

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.

Thinking about bringing Brice or another wonderful Senior Springer into your family? Read why rescuing Senior Springers is a top priority for ESRA.
Brice is a sweet, gentle old man who has negotiated lots of lumps and bumps in the road of life. Like lots of us, he has some arthritis, a growth here and there, and is a bit hard of hearing. But he still loves a nice walk in the fresh air, a dip in the pool, a kiss and a hug, hanging out on the couch with his people and the company of other dogs. 

We know he didn’t have much of a life before ESRA took him on and he was very ill when he came into rescue. His blood work revealed he was not producing red blood cells at a sufficient rate to sustain his life. After a few months of treatment, Brice has made great progress health-wise and he deserves to be loved and well cared for in his later years.

Brice is house trained, uses the dog door and is up to date on all his shots. The medicines he is currently taking are supplements: Vetri Science Senior Multivitamin and Dasuquin. Brice was taking Doxycycline daily (in case he had a tick-borne disease or an infection) but we have taken him off the Doxy and will test him shortly to see if his blood work is remaining in normal range without the drug.

Brice is not a demanding type; he is happy to rest on a comfy pillow by your chair in the office or lay on the couch with you when you watch television. He is older, so he does enjoy his naps. But come walk time, he is ready to go a couple of laps. Brice gets along with all the people and animals he has met. He loves them and they love him. He loves his treats and dinner. He does get anxious when riding in the car and needs to be kenneled.

If you are interested having a loving old guy to hang out with, Brice is your man!

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 Ditto or another wonderful Senior Springer into your family? Read why rescuing Senior Springers is a top priority for ESRA.
Are you looking for a classic Springer? Look no further! Ditto is the epitome of what everyone is looking for in a Springer. This lover boy wants to be with you all the time! He’s a big, needy, clingy baby who finds himself in the position of locating a new home because his owner passed away.

Ditto came from a home where he was crated much of the time; however, he has decided that his kennel days are over. Having the run of the house is much more fun, and we agreed that some freedom is long overdue. Ditto is house trained and will tell you when he needs to go outside. He will also tell you a big story when it’s time for his dinner!

Ditto gets along fine with most dogs, but he prefers to be the center of attention soaking up all the love you have to give. He is tolerant of his foster sister, a female Lab. When they go outside he tries to keep up with her, but sometimes she runs over him trying to get out the door. Occasionally he loses his footing, but he catches up to her quickly without complaining. Because Ditto was raised with multiple dogs, he’s used to being fed separately and will stay at his own dish.

Ditto is a great car rider. He settles down quickly and doesn’t move until the car stops. He enjoys trips to the bay with his foster parents and has become a great fishing buddy. He goes back and forth from one pier to the other and then settles down to bask in the sun by his foster mom’s chair on the dock. Judging by the size of the fish they are catching, we think he may be a good luck charm!

When not fishing, Ditto follows his foster mom around the house and sleeps by her feet when she’s at the computer. He walks well on a lead, and he’s good for his bath and grooming. He’s not really interested in toys -- he just wants to be with his people. When it’s time for bed, he normally passes out early on his doggy bed and sleeps there all night. What a good boy! Ditto’s foster mom describes him as the perfect dog.

Ditto NEEDS to be with his people. He NEEDS to snuggle with you. He NEEDS your love and attention. In return, this sweet boy promises to love you FOREVER!

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 A SENIOR SPRINGER INTO YOUR FAMILY? Read why rescuing Senior Springers is a top priority for ESRA.
This is our sweet Lily. She is such a lovely girl and there is no dog more loving and more devoted.

Unfortunately, Lily has led a very hard life and it shows. Likely she was an outside dog with minimal to no veterinary care. She found herself in a city shelter after she was found meandering around in East Texas. Senior dogs at a small country shelter have almost no chance of making it out. Thank goodness ESRA got to her in time!

Lily arrived filthy, matted and covered in fleas. Her front leg was swollen three times its normal size from a badly infected and undetected snakebite. The infection was so advanced that we thought we were going to lose her. Her ears were also grossly and painfully infected. From a lifetime of chronic and untreated ear infections, Lily has developed cauliflower ear. Unfortunately, Lily’s woes didn’t stop there. She then had a very serious abscess in her ear that spiked a fever so high that Lily could not stand on her own. We are so lucky she has recovered beautifully from all of her medical trials and tribulations. She prances now and even tries to jump up on you when she's excited! She is truly priceless.

Despite all that she has been through, Lily is the most gentle, the kindest and most loving senior girl in the world. She is so easy to have around as she follows you everywhere, nudging you for pets, and doing anything you ask. Lily will need to be placed as an only dog in her Forever Home, as she is protective of her space and with other dogs. She would be very gentle with young children.

Surprisingly, Lily is in relatively good health now. Her ears do need to be watched carefully. She is on joint supplements and anti-inflammatory for older hips and a knee that gives her trouble on occasion. She is now spayed, current on all vaccines, heartworm negative and microchipped for safekeeping.

Lily needs to be adored, to be doted upon, and needs the love of a family. She will give love back to you ten-fold in return, we promise! Please email her case manager/foster mom if you want to give Lily all that she deserves.

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 Lily.

Oreo is everything a great companion should be – he’s handsome, smart, sweet and playful. He knows the basic commands: Sit, Down and Stay. He will look into a crate but has no desire to go into one. He freely roams his foster home and has not had any problems. He is house trained and will go to the back door when he needs to go out. He gets along well with his Springer foster sister who tries to remind him daily that she is the boss.

Oreo is a great watch dog and alerts you if an animal or person gets anywhere close to the house. He does sometimes get on the furniture, but will get down when asked. He adores going for rides in the car, but needs to keep his seatbelt on so he doesn’t have too much fun playing in the car.

Oreo’s foster mom has this to say:

He is super sweet and cute. He is a great dog and we enjoy fostering him. He does display the typical Velcro Springer traits - he has the wiggle butt and he likes to follow his people around everywhere. Oreo sleeps on a dog bed at night and naps in front of the window during the day. He gets along great with his ten-year-old human foster sister. Oreo needs some basic training to help him learn to walk on a leash. Obedience training would serve him well in this area, because he loves to go for walks and does well at the dog park.


Oreo is a very healthy and happy boy. While he may be about seven years old, he acts like a toddler with his enthusiasm and playfulness. Oreo would prefer a home where either his owner is home most of the time, or a home with another dog so he won’t get lonely. He’s current on all his vaccinations and is microchipped. He is ready now to go to his 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 Oreo.

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.

Are you looking for a quiet, well-mannered friend?  Then you must meet Sparky!  Sparky’s foster mom describes him as a sweet and loving companion.  He follows her every step and loves to get belly rubs.

Sparky was found as a stray and the nice lady who found him contacted ESRA.  An owner was located; however, they decided they wanted a better life for Sparky.  Seems that he was living outside due to the owner’s allergies.  He was bored and lonely, so Sparky decided to go on adventures! His foster home must be a happy place, because Sparky has never once tried to escape.  

At first it was a little difficult adjusting to his new home, but Sparky eventually began to feel safe and loved. There were a few growling incidents, but it didn’t take long before he became part of the pack.  Sparky is happy as long has he doesn’t have to compete for attention. Can you ever get enough love?  Sparky doesn’t think so! 

What a good boy!  Sparky is house trained, crate trained and loves his toys.  He gets very excited and does a little dance before sitting politely for his treat. He’s not a high energy dog, but he would enjoy a daily walk or playtime in the yard as long as you’re with him.  Some basic training would be a great way to bond with him. While Sparky enjoys going outside to explore the back yard, he mostly wants to be a couch potato. He loves to go for car rides, especially when he gets a treat from the drive thru.  Cautious around strangers, he may bark or growl until you reassure him that everything is okay.  Then he warms up quickly, seeking affection. 

Sparky is neutered, current on vaccinations and microchipped.  He just completed heartworm treatment, so he’s ready to find his FOREVER home!   Please send us your application today to make this fabulous guy part of your family!

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 welcome Emory, the gentleman with handsomely classic Springer good looks, to our program.  We are thrilled to have the opportunity to turn this lovely boy's life around.

His life as a pup started out with his human dad who hunted with him.  Due to a move, he was given away to a family via Craig’s List. But when Emory didn't get along with the resident dogs, he was passed on to a family member who sequestered him exclusively and continuously to the back yard.

For the last five years, Emory has lived alone in solitude with no vet care, no affection and the need and longing for something to occupy himself.  Unfortunately, his boredom and lack of stimulation resulted in occasional bouts of spinning and chasing his tail. This typically occurs when he's excited or needs some exercise -- yet it stops the minute he's distracted.  This behavior should subside as time goes on.

Since Emory’s arrival, he is now enjoying the life of an indoor dog along with air conditioning!  He is so sincerely excited and appreciative of his new-found companionship, too.

And, oh, what a major lover boy he is!  He is now flea free. His dry, sun-bleached coat has been shaved off, and he's on antibiotics for ear and skin infections.  Emory is basking in all the love and attention he's been receiving in his foster home.  He's learning basic obedience commands and leash manners.

Emory is absolutely wonderful! He is friendly with everyone and quite a social guy who is eager to go anywhere. He's housetrained, crate trained and good with cats.  He would do well with older children who would treat him respectfully.  He loves his toys, and boy, does he love his belly rubs.  Emory does need to live as an only dog in the household.  He's not fond of strange dogs in his face, but has fared very well meeting other dogs at the vet, pet store and on walks.

Emory's ideal home would have a stay- or work-at-home family, as he has spent far too many years alone.  We would like him to be an integral family member, included and involved whenever possible.  While he can be very laid-back, Emory's mind is sharp and in need of stimulation.  He needs daily exercise, good long walks and jogs, sniffing and exploring time -- time spent being a Springer!

Emory’s in good health.  He tested negative for heartworms, he was brought current on routine vaccinations and his blood work was good.  He was in desperate need of a dental, which we have done.  He is trim and fit.

We cannot begin to sing his praises enough.  If you are his "match made in heaven," please contact his Case Manager.

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

Polly is a very sweet girl and lives to be loved.  

She is very good in the house and sleeps on a bed on the floor but would love to cuddle with you if you let her.  Her ideal home would be with someone who is home most of the day. She will always greet you at the door and is so happy to see you!  

Polly loves children and likes to follow them around the yard. Cats are not an issue with Polly and once she knows what to expect from them, you can expect to catch them sniffing each other so sweetly!

Polly is a sweet girl who is waiting for her Forever Home. Could that home be yours?

Emmie is a very well-mannered girl and is a delight to have around.  She likes walks where she can wander a little and she always keeps her eye on you so you don’t wander off.  

She is very good with children and gets along with all the dogs she has met. Cats are not a problem for Emmie, either.  

She needs a gentle hand and is very independent for a Springer.  If given the chance, Emmie will blossom in a fine companion. She deserves a loving Forever Home and is waiting for the perfect family. Are you the family Emmie is waiting for?

Meet Roxy, an eight-year-old Cavalier King Charles Spaniel mix.  She is a spunky little girl who is curious about everything.   She is fine with the other dogs and cats in her foster home and tried to play with the old cat, which was funny to watch.

Roxy is house trained and now crate trained.   Roxy is getting used to being left alone for short periods of times.

She is responding to affection by giving kisses and jumping into laps.   She will follow you around and lay down nearby with her head between her paws.  She also lets you know when it is time for breakfast or supper.

We do not know what Roxy’s first home situation was like except that there were children in that home.
  
Roxy would probably do best where someone is home most of the day.  She is fine on unleashed walks in her foster home’s rural, country area.

It's a whole new world for Jasmine! She's come a long way from being an outside hunting dog and having puppies.

She's smart, playful, snugly, eager to please and learn. Jasmine needs a family that will continue to help her learn with positive training and learning the ropes while gaining confidence. She wants to be included and part of the family.

Jasmine has learned the dog door and is house trained. She's also learned that she is allowed in the house and how to relax inside. She's crate trained. At first, the crate was the only place she felt comfortable. Once she saw the other dogs were allowed out, she wanted out too.

She's also learning to ride in the car. Being inside the car is a new experience for her.

This girl is an active eight-year-old. She loves toys (balls, Frisbee, sticks) and belly rubs. She loves to be with her people. She's happy to sit at your feet, but if allowed would love to be snuggled under your arm. If she's next to you, you must have your arm around her to pet her! She loves to go with her people. She would love her own fluffy bed or to join you on your bed.

She will greet you with a wiggle butt and happy WOO HOO! Jasmine also “woo-hoos” when she is hungry and as a thank you.

She's working on her leash manners (she probably was never exposed to one), her tendency to be a bit mouthy and her love of leather shoes and handbags. What lady doesn't like shoes and handbags?

Jasmine is whistle trained to Come and Sit. She also knows Up, Down, Sit and Come. She's apparently a strong swimmer. She likes to run through the sprinklers.

The mellow dogs are her favorites. She can be selective with some dogs. When she came into foster care, she was a bit fearful of the intentions of other dogs. She doesn't like to be cornered by other dogs and is also afraid they will take her food. She will warn them with a growl. She was very "interested" in the dog savvy cats at the vet’s office.

Jasmine has recently had some mammary tumors removed, been spayed and had some bad teeth removed. She’s feeling a lot better now!

She did have one tumor that was questionable and she will need a few x-rays as follow up over the next year. The vet feels that she is good to go and is ready to move to her Forever Home.

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.

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