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.

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, a.k.a."Cowgirl," is a lovely dog who looks younger than eight years old. She has great house manners and won't get on the furniture or bed. She is crate trained and rides well in a car. She gets along with other dogs and children, but is unknown about cats.

She likes people and wants to check in and see where you are but she isn't the type of dog who needs to always be with you. She likes her toys and is also somewhat light-obsessed, but it's not compulsive. She does takes Proin for nighttime incontinence and sleeps in her crate with a puppy pad to manage it.  

She is in excellent physical condition and very muscular, making her look and act more like a five-year-old dog. CeeGee likes to go for walks but pulls some at the beginning of the walk.

Check out this little beauty! Wouldn’t you love to be the one to give CeeGee her
Forever Home?

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

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

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

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

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

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

Thinking about bringing Toby or another wonderful Senior Springer into your family? Read why rescuing Senior Springers is a top priority for ESRA.
Toby is blossoming! This beautiful senior gentleman has taken a new lease on life with his recent weight loss (down seven pounds) and new haircut. Life is good and Toby has shown us how ready he is for his permanent family. He is a loving, Velcro Springer who has so much love to give his people. He also so enjoys being part of the gang at this foster home. He and his foster sister have become good friends and enjoy sharing quiet moments at home.

It hasn’t been easy for Toby and he isn’t perfect. And he is an older guy. Here’s his progress report:

• Leash walking – He is doing well with his no-pull harness, and to avoid leash reactions, smart choices from his foster mom. He does best when he can avoid close encounters with other dogs and fast-moving joggers.
• Anxiety – He is much less anxious with the comfortable home routine and a low dose of medication. When he occasionally is anxious (in other words: pacing or whining), he is easily redirected with a treat.
• Hearing – He has responded well to simple hand signals since his hearing has diminished.
• Hip Pain – Toby’s weight loss has helped his comfortable movement in conjunction with a pain medication. We expect the pain med may be temporary with his weight reduction.

Toby is house, doggy door and crate trained. He loves his balls and squeaky toys and can happily entertain himself.

Toby’s foster mom says:

He is very good with hand signals now for Sit, Stay, Lay Down, Come, Release, and Good Dog. He is still super sweet, cuddly, gentle and wants to please his people. When I scolded him for trash diving, there was no sass. He is such a teddy bear. Everyone who meets him loves him, and people pull over in their cars when I’m walking him to ask about him and say how beautiful and sweet he is. 


Toby would love an adult family (no cats, please) that enjoys his loving nature and will provide moderate walks. Toby is a homebody and likes to hang out at home with his people. If you think you might be the right family for Toby, let us know. We would be glad to talk to you about this wonderful gentleman!

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

Age:8 years
Gender:Male

Weight:50 lbs
Variety:Field
This handsome guy is Tulo. It is his love for balls that got him this new name. Tulo is a two-ball dog. The easiest way to get him to drop a ball is to have another one ready to throw. He lives to chase after balls. Tulo came into the care of our friends at Adams County Humane as a stray. After his owner did not come to take him home, ESRA was contacted to help in giving Tulo a fresh start in life.

Tulo gets along well with his foster brothers and sisters but should do well in a home as an only dog. Based on Tulo’s behavior while in foster care, we are led to believe that he has abused. Tulo can become fearful at times when inside and does communicate when he is uncomfortable. Tulo has made progress to trust people again, but he still needs patience and kindness to continue his growth.

Being as active as he is, you would never know that Tulo does have arthritis issues with his ankles and to a much lesser degree, his wrists. He has adjusted his gait both walking and running to accommodate his condition. He will need to receive Glucosamine going forward, and a day will come when he'll need pain medication. But for now, he's very happy and comfortable running after thrown balls. His exuberance when outdoors chasing balls transitions in to calm when indoors (provided there is not a ball in sight). He is very content to have a designated dog couch to lie on.

Tulo is really a fun loving, adventurous Springer who is most happy when going on walks and chasing balls at the dog park. He loves it when company comes to the door, as he is excited to say hello. Tulo is a smart fellow, as he is house trained and learned how to use the dog door in a matter of days. His house manners are so good that Tulo can be trusted to have run of the house. If you are planning on working on your throwing arm, Tulo will be thrilled to bring the ball back to you over and over and over again. Tulo could also be a good candidate for search and rescue training. Tulo is a sweet boy looking for a Forever Home that will help him to heal from his past experiences and love him unconditionally.

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

Meet, Mr. Gorgeous -- aka Teddy!

Teddy's lifelong family was forced to give him up after the human baby starting crawling and walking.  He has been very well loved and beautifully cared for by his previous dad.  But, Teddy has his limits and is not equipped to handle the antics of a toddler.

Teddy is absolutely fabulous!  He's so dear and so loving, and all about his people.  He is energetic, always up for the next adventure, loves his walks and loves to explore.  He is a major cuddler and will paw you for more love.  Teddy enjoys his toys and adores his people dearly. He fares well with other dogs but has lived as an only dog thus far.  He is housetrained and crate trained.  We are not aware of any prior exposure to cats, but suspect he wouldn't pay much attention to them.  

A calmer adult home would be ideal for this beautiful boy.  He can be somewhat leery of strangers. Once he meets you, he's absolutely fine -- just not immediately trusting.  His adoptive family will need to commit to working with him, teaching him that meeting strangers and new people entering his home or on his walks is the most fantastic thing that could happen to him.  

Teddy received a clean bill of health from the vet, is current on his shots, tested negative for heartworms and is microchipped.

If you would like to rescue this wonderful, wonderful boy, please contact his Case Manager.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.

Thinking about bringing Ruby or another wonderful Senior Springer into your family? Read why rescuing Senior Springers is a top priority for ESRA.
We can guarantee the special family who adopts this lovely senior girl will find a slice of heaven in Ruby.

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

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

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

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

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

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

Cisco is a very cool dog!  He is big, tall and athletic -- a gorgeous field-bred boy. He is of excellent temperament and is a wonderful and outgoing Springer. 

Cisco is full of life and full of energy.  He walks and runs with the most beautiful gait.  His Forever Family will need to work with him on basic obedience and leash skills along with providing plenty of outdoor opportunities for exercise so he can truly be the amazing Springer that he is.  He is best suited for older children given his size and his strength.

This young boy is great with the other dogs.  We suspect a cat would be prey to him. He's really improved on his house manners, but is still required to be confined to a room or a crate when left alone.  Cisco is housetrained and does fine in his crate.

Cisco is very healthy, neutered, current on all his vaccinations and microchipped.

Cisco will be a fantastic companion. Please reach out to his Case Manager if Cisco appears to be a perfect match for you. 

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

UPDATE 1/3/17: Dutch is currently in heartworm treatment and doing well. He will be available for adoption at approximately the end of January, 2017. Make sure to check back to see how Dutch is doing!

------

Dutch loves you already -- and you've only just met through an online profile!

This cute little boy has a gentle disposition and sweet personality.  Found as a stray, Dutch needs some basic training.  He is eager to please and has excellent eye contact.  Dutch doesn't really understand that people and other dogs have something called “personal space.”  He loves to jump in your lap, stand with his paws on your chest and give you kisses!  If he's not smooching, he presses his face against yours.

Dutch is very playful with other dogs.  He gets in their face and loves to wrestle.  He loves playing with toys and will fetch his ball. He is crate trained and we are working on house training. He's not a barker; however, he will alert you when he hears a noise.

Dutch was very thin and had a sparse coat when he was found.  Just look at his progress!  He is current on vaccinations, neutered and microchipped.  Unfortunately, Dutch tested positive for heartworms and will require treatment.  Ideally, he would receive treatment in a foster-to-adopt home. Heartworm treatment takes about sixty days and the dog has to remain calm during that time period -- no exercise and no excitement. After treatment, though, he will be ready to run and play again!

With a little patience and training, Dutch will be the perfect addition to your family. He will be so worth it!  Please send us your application today to meet this wonderful boy!

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

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!

Thinking about bringing Beeve or another wonderful Senior Springer into your family? Read why rescuing Senior Springers is a top priority for ESRA.
Meet our precious Beeve!  Don't let his age fool you. Mr. Beeve has discovered the fountain of youth!  He is sharp, energetic, fit, agile, and he's a squirrel-chasing fool!  He's darling, he's sweet, and he is searching for a family of his own.  We believe Beeve to be a Sprocker.

Beeve has had the good fortune of being a very well-loved dog.  Sadly, his human mom has been very ill for a while now, forcing them to move to an apartment.  She can no longer walk him and there's no outdoor space for Beeve to run and be the pup he loves to be. She wants only the best for him; so, she selflessly reached out to ESRA for help in hopes of bringing the joy and happiness back into this little boy's life.

Beeve's list of "favorites" include chasing squirrels, playing with toys, riding in the car, visiting with everyone he meets and simply loving you.  His “dislikes” -- thunderstorms! He is a treasure.

Beeve can get somewhat anxious on occasion.  Given lots of opportunity to bound around in the yard, go on daily walks and be provided with socialization and lots of one-on-one time, the anxiety disappears.  When alone, he relaxes nicely in his crate.  He's accustomed to snuggling with you on the couch and on the bed.  He's housetrained and crate trained.  He loves children and he loves other dogs, although he can occasionally be a bit bossy.  It's pretty entertaining to see ten-year-old Beeve chasing around the two-year-old Springer. He is a trip!

Beeve is active, strong and very healthy. He has the cutest little body – it looks like he's put in his time at the gym!  He's current on vaccinations, neutered, heartworm negative, on monthly heartworm and flea prevention and he is microchipped.  His blood work came back great.  He also has just had a dental.

If you would like to put the sparkle back into little Beeve's eyes, please contact his Case Manager.  We are also looking for a foster home for Beeve to land while he waits for his Forever and ever Family.

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

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

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.

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

Meet our pride and joy, Glory! 

Glory landed in ESRA's care in November, 2016 and her wonderful foster mom has been nursing her back to health. Glory needed to gain some weight and build some muscle. She also had an acute UTI that has now been resolved.  Glory is currently taking medication for mild incontinence and it's working well. She is spayed, current on her shots, heartworm negative and microchipped.

Glory enjoys going for walks and does well on leash.  She loves to run outside and has a beautiful long loping gait!  She goes out to do her business and comes right back to the door. Like all Springers, she loves attention and prefers to be indoors with her people. She would benefit from daily exercise, but she is not a high-energy dog.  

Friendly with strangers and polite with children, Glory does not jump up on people. She knows basic commands and is not a barker.  She has a mild mannered, calm personality. Glory gets along great with the other dogs in her foster home and she's kind to cats as well. Glory would benefit from having another canine companion in her new home, especially if her new mom or dad work outside the home. She is submissive, but not fearful.  

Are you looking for a sweetheart like Glory? Please send us your application today!

Age:7 years
Gender:Male

Mason was adopted from ESRA in 2013, but has come back to us due to a number of changes in his family.

He just celebrated his seventh birthday. Mason is a real charmer and has the most expressive eyes. He’s so, so sweet!  He’s playful and affectionate and loves to snuggle. Since he never wants to be too far away, he thinks he should sleep in the bed with his human. He has a pretty laid back temperament. He gets along with all the other dogs and all the people he meets.  Mason’s great with older children (over the age of eight), but babies and toddlers can be too much for him. While he is untested with cats, his laid-back personality indicates that he would probably be fine.  

Mason is the perfect companion and family dog.  He loves to run and play with the other dogs outside, but is the perfect gentleman in the house.  He’s a beautiful boy to boot!  He loves to play with his toys and is always excited to give you the best ever greeting when you come home! Everyone who meets Mason thinks he’s adorable.  He likes to go for walks and LOVES rides in the car.  

Mason has been neutered, is current on all his vaccinations and is microchipped.  The vet has given him a clean bill of health. He currently has a short haircut, but we’ve included some photos of him in all his glory.

Mason is a perfect companion with a delightful Springer personality. Mason is a true Velcro dog and will follow you everywhere.  He walks well on a leash and has excellent recall.  There is nothing disagreeable at all we can say about this guy.  Do you have a place in your heart and home for this very special Springer boy?

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

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

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

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

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

Call me,
Bucky


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

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

Don't miss out!  Our Brownie is a very special girl.  

Adopted through ESRA in 2011, Brownie has been living a wonderful life; however, her owner feels that Brownie would be happier with someone who can give her more of their time.  It has been a difficult decision to make, but her owner works full time and Brownie is home alone all day.  This creates some anxiety, as Brownie is a very active dog who needs to stay busy.

What would be the ideal home for Brownie?  

1) Someone who is home all or most of the day.  Perhaps a stay-at-home parent or someone who works from home. Brownie needs companionship and playtime to keep from becoming bored.

2) Someone who can give her lots of daily exercise. We feel Brownie needs at least two long walks every day. She currently enjoys her walks and often goes hiking on the weekends.

3) Being the center of attention!  Brownie prefers the company of humans over other dogs.  A typical needy/clingy Springer, she wants to soak up all the loving you can give her.  She's polite with other dogs, but prefers not to share her toys or mom's attention.

4)  An activity would be ideal for Brownie.  She needs to stay mentally engaged. She enjoys training and might excel in competition. There are so many fun activities you can share with your dog and that's exactly what she needs. 

5)  Brownie is a certified therapy dog and it would be wonderful to find someone who would continue and enjoy this experience with her.  

Would your home be the right home for Brownie?  She's looking for a very special adopter and it might be you!

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.

Meet Goose! He is such a fun-loving guy. Although we can only estimate his age, he has a lot of life and love left in him.  

All we know about Goose's past is that he was an outdoor dog. However, he is now learning to be an indoor dog, and he is well on his way. We're pleased to report that Goose is learning to use the dog door as a good Springer should!

Goose is very well behaved in his crate, and he loves his tennis ball. He is mostly deaf, but this is not a problem for him because he stays around his people and looks to them for cues.  

This handsome boy is just looking for a Forever Home where he will be well taken care of and be able to give and receive the love he deserves. If you would like to know more about him, please contact his foster mom at the e-mail address below.

THINKING ABOUT BRINGING A SENIOR SPRINGER INTO YOUR FAMILY? Read why rescuing Senior Springers is a top priority for ESRA.
Bambi is an amazing Springer mix. She is a cancer survivor and loving life. Bambi has been through a great deal of chemotherapy on her hind leg. She dealt with all her treatments with grace and a sense of humor. However, cancer kept rearing its ugly head. Bambi's team of oncologists all agreed that the removal of her leg was her best option to be cancer free. With three legs, Bambi is in full remission and there is only a ten percent chance her cancer will ever come back.

When Bambi arrived home from her surgery, she picked up where she had left off, running around the back yard and making sure her foster mom is happy.

Bambi continues to be a spunky, affectionate little girl. Three legs will not slow her down a bit.

Bambi is house trained and knows how to use the dog door. She is good in the house and requires fluffy beds to lie upon. However, her favorite place is snuggling with her people.

Bambi knows a lot of tricks. She knows Watch Me, Sit, Shake, Down, Fetch (which sometimes includes Return) and Roll Over. She has graduated from obedience school. Bambi is smart and would like to learn more.

Bambi rides well in the car and walks great on a leash. Walks as a tripod are very important, as Bambi loves to be social.

Bambi deserves to find her Forever Home. Is Bambi the special girl you’ve been searching for?

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

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

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

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

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

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

THINKING ABOUT BRINGING A SENIOR SPRINGER INTO YOUR FAMILY? Read why rescuing Senior Springers is a top priority for ESRA.
Buddy is an English Springer who is full of life and has a lot of puppy still in him. He needs to have a space to run. As much as he likes to run and play, he is a loving dog and likes to be close. One of his favorite things is to sit beside someone on the couch or in a recliner to nap and snuggle. At a little over fifty-five pounds, he still thinks he is a lap dog and his feelings can get hurt easily.

Buddy is house and crate trained. He is good with children six years old and older. Buddy loves car rides. Buddy is a well-behaved Springer for the groomer too. He sleeps in his crate at night.

Bella is a sweet Brittany Spaniel who was rescued from a puppy mill about six years ago. She is quiet and shy and needs gentle care. She will follow Buddy anywhere – because if Buddy likes it, it must be okay. Bella loves to go for walks and chase birds. A few times she will bring you a dead bird as a present. Buddy and Bella have a daily sibling ‘fun’ fight. Where they wrestle each other and run and then wrestle and run some more, it is quite adorable and completely harmless.

Bella, like Buddy, is house and crate trained. She too enjoys children and loves car rides. Bella sleeps in her crate at night.

Buddy and Bella are seeking a Forever Home that adores affection, long walks, cuddle time and treats. This pair is the perfect duo to enjoy with your family and friends.

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