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.

Interested in William and Caroline? Then read about bonded pairs and the benefits of adopting these special best friends.
Introducing ESRA royalty: Prince William and Princess Caroline!

Look at these beauties! Caroline is a gorgeous liver-and-white tri-colored Springer girl who is on the smaller size. William appears to be a black-and-white Springer, but he does have subtle tan points when you look closely. These siblings are sweet, happy, well-adjusted young Springers. They are full of life, full of energy, and overflowing with love to offer a wonderful Springer family. They are very social and friendly with all people and dogs.

William and Caroline adore each other and are extremely close. Caroline is quick as a fox and quite the huntress -- she could chase squirrels for hours! William is more laid back, usually by your side, and will run to give you kisses even at the whisper of his name. They love their toys and enjoy the car.

They would be happiest in a home where they are not left alone for long hours. They are exuberant and playful and need a great yard where they can bound around and burn off youthful Springer energy. They would love playtime in the yard, lots of room to stretch their legs and long daily walks or jogs. They have matured enough that they can be left to roam the house while left alone. They have been pampered and spoiled, accustomed to cuddling on the couch and sleeping in the bed. We hope to find a home where they can do the same. A home with no cats is recommended. This adorable pair will need to learn basic obedience training and leash skills. The adopting family must commit to this. Both pups have lovely dispositions. They are best suited for older children given their enthusiasm.

Both are healthy, current on vaccinations, tested negative for heartworms and are microchipped for safekeeping.

If you are the perfect home for our prince and princess, we look forward to hearing from you.

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

Thinking about bringing Sofia or another wonderful Senior Springer into your family? Read why rescuing Senior Springers is a top priority for ESRA.
Meet our beautiful senior girl, Sofia. She was found as a stray, although the shelter believes her owner was the one who turned her in. Her condition was appalling -- her coat was matted tightly and painfully to her skin as well as being urine soaked. She was stained from head to toe, her eyes weeping and she was bone thin. The shelter was kind enough to reach out to us to get Sofia immediate help.

When she arrived, we found the sweetest, most timid Springer who clearly had a rough life. Neglect was apparent, but we started seeing some signs of abuse as well. We believe she lived in a very small space, perhaps a cage or crate. Slowly, she has come out of her shell and all that beauty inside is starting to shine. She still does tuck her head on occasion when you reach out to pet her.

She tested positive for heartworms, yet her lungs looked fine and heart sounded strong. Given her age, we opted not to treat her but, instead, give her a monthly dose of Ivermectin. She was sedated to have a couple of growths removed and give her a much-needed dental. Sofia was also incontinent when she arrived. We finally have that managed with a couple of different meds. She also suffered from allergies, but is under control completely with a pill each day. She has gained a few pounds along with muscle mass. She is a whole new girl: running around and occasionally jumping up on you with excitement. Hew new family will need to continue with a high-quality diet, daily fish oils, Apoquel for allergies along with her incontinence meds.

Sofia is the easiest girl to care for. She absolutely wants to be with you all the time, she loves to snuggle and she loves her toys. She would very much enjoy daily strolls and car rides as often as possible! She is always raring to go anywhere in the car with you!

Sofia fares well with other dogs and really enjoys them, but she can get jealous on occasion about sharing the love. We think she would prefer to be an only dog in the home, but could share a home with just the right dog. She is a very gentle soul and would be good with older children.

Our seniors need us the most -- their love is eternal. Please email her foster family if you would like Sofia to be "your girl."

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

Meet Oliver, our big liver-and-white fieldie boy who loves to play, play, play! Oliver enjoys retrieving the ball and playing hide and seek with his toys. He loves running in the park or taking leisurely walks. He needs a large yard where he can play or someone who is dedicated to an exercise routine. He also loves the water! 

Oliver is house trained and knows how to use a doggy door.  He is an only dog, but does play well with other dogs and is friendly with cats.  He enjoys meeting new people and is good with children. Oliver has only used a crate a few times, including travel during a plane ride. He currently stays in the house outside of a crate during the day and does well with no accidents or destructive issues. He also rides well in the car.  

Oliver is neutered, on heartworm prevention, microchipped and current on his shots. He is a big boy at sixty-five pounds and has a medium coat length that is easy to maintain. 

Oliver will bark when the doorbell rings to alert you, but he's friendly with visitors.  On rare occasions, he is a little frightened in a thunderstorm, but he will usually just get closer to you or lay under a coffee table. He is such a sweet, calm and quiet boy.

If you think Oliver would be the perfect fit for your family and lifestyle, please send us your application today.

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

Hello, Peyton is my name! I’m told I was named after a very nice volunteer who rescued me from the shelter.  That was a scary place and I never want to go back there!  Now I’m looking for a Forever Home where I can feel safe and secure.  

I am a young, energetic boy who loves to play and spend time with my people. My foster mom says I’m a real sweetheart and I LOVE to sit in your lap. I’m sad when you leave and I’m always glad to see you upon your return home.  

I enjoy going for walks and I don’t pull on the leash; however, my foster mom says I need to walk beside her instead of in front of her.  I can’t help it!  Walks are very exciting!  I also love my toys and can be a little protective sometimes. I’m friendly around other dogs, but I’m not happy about sharing my toys. 

I guess I need to work on my manners a little and learn some self-control. I get excited easily, but I respond well to positive reinforcement and especially treats! I will sit, lie down and trade for a treat.  I need my Forever Family to continue this behavior modification, as they say I am a work in progress.  I think I am best suited for an adult home where I can be the center of attention.  

I am completely house trained and I learned how to use the doggy door.  I love my crate and immediately go in when asked. 

If you think you are ready to help me become an awesome adult dog, please contact my foster mom.  She says I’m an amazing pup and I’m on my way to being your forever best friend!

xxoo,
Peyton


Peyton is neutered, current on vaccinations, microchipped and in good health.  He will need to complete heartworm treatment at ESRA’s expense in a foster-to-adopt home.

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.

Our precious Zeke has one of those faces that melts your heart.  He is a living doll!

Zeke was found as a stray, had bright pink skin, a patchy coat, painful ears and tested heartworm positive. We believe he also endured harsh treatment by his humans in his past -- a gentle reach toward him caused him to urinate in fear.  He will need a special and understanding family. Our best guess is that he's roughly five years old.

He is now heartworm free and his allergies are well controlled.  He is very-well socialized, greets everyone he encounters with a wiggle butt and a huge "hello" and a face full of kisses.  He has such an outgoing and friendly personality.  Yet still, on occasion, we catch a glimpse of that frightened little boy that arrived months ago.

Zeke is in excellent shape, at his ideal weight, neutered, current on shots and microchipped.  He does require a high-quality kibble and daily dose of Apoquel to keep his allergies in check.

Zeke can be protective of his belongings.  His new family will need to be an experienced dog owner and must continue with his behavior modification.  When he's playing with a toy and you move toward him, he now immediately drops his toy and runs wiggling toward you.  He is best suited for an adult home.  Zeke loves other dogs, but given he doesn't like sharing his toys, he will need to be the only pup in the house unless the resident dog doesn't play with toys. He is unknown with cats.  He is an excellent client at the groomer and patient at the vet's office.

Aside from this, Zeke is the most tender-hearted, devoted, loving companion you could imagine.  We ADORE him so! He is well-mannered, obedient, and only wants to please you.  He walks nicely on a leash.  He loves care rides, but once in a while he will get car sick if he's just had a meal.  It is rare that this happens.

Zeke deserves the best of the best!  If you believe you can give Zeke all that and more AND are able to continue with his training, please email his foster mom.

On a side note, his foster mom could not bring herself to cut off his adorable curly locks atop his head!

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 Zeke.

Meet Charlie, the lovable, enthusiastic little pup.

Charlie is a darling, small Springer-Cocker mix. He is still young, but quite easy going and low maintenance for his age. Charlie loves to cuddle and hang out with his people; he’s truly a happy-go-lucky kind of guy. Like any Springer, he adores being around people, but does equally well on his own. Give Charlie a toy to play with, and he’s in doggie heaven.

He is doing quite well with his house training. It’s going well since Charlie really likes his crate. It’s important to mention that this little guy is wicked smart and picks up on cues quickly. His foster mom said that he recognized which home was theirs and headed straight for the front door in less than a week as he makes his way back on his walks.

Charlie is still young and will benefit from training. With some love and a little training, this sweetheart is going to charm your socks off!

Charming Charlie is current on his vaccines, neutered, microchipped and heartworm negative. He was heartworm positive when he first arrived, but has gone through the treatment and is doing well. He seems to like everyone he meets, though he is untested with cats. Charlie would prefer not to have to share your love and attention with another dog. However, he will shower you with lots of love, attention and affection.

If you’re looking for a smart, incredibly lovable companion in a tiny package, then Charlie may be the perfect one 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 Charlie.

Max is a nine-year-old black-and-white sweet guy looking for his Forever Home.  He was initially a dad's dog; he then went to the son's family who did not have the time to give Max the love and attention he deserves.  They turned to ESRA to find the perfect Forever Home for this happy, Velcro boy.

Max is adjusting to life with his foster family.  He has learned to live with the resident dog and we think he could do this in his Forever Home. We also feel Max would be perfectly happy being an only dog.  He is happiest when his crate is close to the activity so that he can lay in it with the door open when he chooses.   

Max has met older children in foster care and we feel that Max will do great with children eight years old and older.  He likes younger children, but he may knock them down.  He also has met a cat on his daily walk that he seems to like.  

It was reported by his relinquishing family that Max was not house trained; however, he has not had any accidents in the house while in foster care.  Max follows his foster mom everywhere in true Velcro Springer fashion.  

Max does well on a leash and needs a daily walk for his health, but he isn't looking for an extremely active lifestyle.  We feel Max would be happiest with a retired or a family that works at home so he can be with his people most of the time.  

Max is happy and eager to please and very willing to work for treats!

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

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