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.

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 Tulo or another wonderful Senior Springer into your family? Read why rescuing Senior Springers is a top priority for ESRA.
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.

Miss Reba is a playful little character. She is so adaptable to her people and circumstances. She comes into a new situation and makes herself right at home. Reba is a happy and enthusiastic girl who wants to participate in your routine and your life.

Reba came into ESRA's care a little overweight and it was important for us to help her lose some weight for her FHO (Femoral Head Ostectomy) surgery.  The head of her femur was almost out of the socket, which is a painful condition which that she had lived with for a long time.  Her surgery was a success and her rehab has gone extremely well thanks to the amazing care of her foster mom.  Reba now has the “all clear” from her vet to go to her Forever Home. She now goes on daily walks of ten blocks. She will never be a jogging or hiking partner, though, but looks forward to her neighborhood walks and navigates the stairs in her foster home with no problems.

Reba plays with toys, snuggles, follows you from room to room and gives the sweetest little kisses. She rides well in the car and enjoys car rides. We have found that she responds best to a gentle leader on her walks. Due to the fact that she protected her hip all those years, children over the age of ten would be best for her. Large dogs and dogs that engage in rough-style play would not be the best fit for Reba, either.

If you think this funny little Springer girl might fit into your family and your heart, please contact us.

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

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.

Thinking about bringing Ruby or another wonderful Senior Springer into your family? Read why rescuing Senior Springers is a top priority for ESRA.
UPDATE, 4/7/17: It appears that Ruby is younger than we originally estimated--possibly ten or eleven. She is now an active senior in amazing shape who would love long daily walks. Ruby jumps and spins when you arrive home. She wrestles and plays with the Springer youngsters in her foster home. She jumps up and down on the furniture and in the car, freely and comfortably. She will dart after the squirrels. There is a young Springer behind that graying face! Ruby would make an amazing member of a family with children or grandchildren. There is no dog more gentle. Ruby is the dearest, sweetest, kindest, easiest, and most adorable senior dog--a true gem!
________________________

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.

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

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.

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 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!

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

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 tall, dark, handsome and fabulous Rocky! Rocky is in search of a home fit for a king. He's always smiling, always wiggling, and is quite the "talker."

Rocky loves his walks and gets super excited when he sees the leash come out.  He hops in the car at any chance he gets to go anywhere and everywhere.  He's quite social and has never met a stranger.  You can take this guy anywhere.  He loves playing fetch and loves to trot around with a stuffed toy in his mouth.  Rocky adores your attention and craves your affection.  His coat is long, silky and gorgeous!  He was a great client at the groomer.  While he needs to learn some basic commands, he is very well-behaved and obedient.  Thus far, we have not seen any bad habits.  He's housetrained and seems to be fine in a crate, although trustworthy when left alone in the house.

Rocky was surrendered to the shelter due to his inability to get along with his lifelong canine buddy.  He has fared quite well in his foster home with the other dogs and really seems to enjoy their company, along with wrestling and playing chase with them.  However, so he does not have to be uprooted from a family again, we prefer to place him as an only dog or perhaps with a submissive female.  

Rocky will need a couple of weeks to settle in his new home, as he can be a bit anxious with big changes.  We also believe he would be happiest with a stay/work-at-home family.  We're comfortable placing him in a home with older children.  He's shown us nothing but a beautiful temperament, as nothing seems to upset him.

Other than being ten pounds overweight, Rocky is in excellent health.  His ideal weight is around fifty pounds.  He's already lost a few of those.  His adopter must feed him a healthy food and provide ample daily walks and exercise in the yard.  He is heartworm negative, on monthly heartworm prevention, neutered, current on shots and microchipped.  

Please reach out to Rocky's Coordinator if you are the perfect match for this handsome Springer with the movie-star looks!

Meet our gorgeous supermodel, CiCi!  No fault of her own, at only eleven months old, she already had two families and had landed in a shelter.  Her ESRA foster family fell for her immediately and formally made her "theirs."  Unfortunately, they have had to make the tearfully heartbreaking decision to find her another home as an only dog.

Cici is tall, lean, leggy and gorgeous with a beautifully gentle temperament.  She is a stunning athlete who needs time and room to be a field-bred Springer. While an active girl, her greatest need is companionship. She will be content to sit on your lap and gratefully accept your adoration.  She is ridiculously affectionate -- the world's largest love bug. She loves to run and play and is doing an exceptional job keeping the squirrels out of the yard.  

Cici is housetrained, crate trained and doggy door trained. Her adoptive family may want to crate her when left alone, as she is still a young pup learning all the rules. However, she is frequently left out of her crate when her foster family leaves because they have dog doors and having lots to keep her occupied outside seems to keep her out of trouble.  Her foster family has worked diligently on her "good manners" training and making great progress. She has learned to sit to be petted and given treats and is learning the Stay command. We expect that she would be fantastic with children. She would be happiest with her family around much of the time. 

Cici is not fond of sharing her toys nor her food with other dogs. Therefore, we prefer to place her as the only "princess" in the home. Having said that, we would like her to still be able to socialize and romp with other dogs at the dog park or play dates, as she fares very well in that environment and enjoys it so. She is unknown with cats.

Cici is very healthy, current on vaccinations, heartworm negative, spayed and microchipped.

Cici is a truly amazingly exceptional Springer. Please contact her Case Manager if you can make Cici's life the best ever!

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

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.

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

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.

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

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?

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.

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.

Magnolia True "Maggie" is a six-year-old liver-and-white female looking for a new Forever Home where she can be the only dog.   Currently Maggie is living with other dogs and cats and is not happy. Her family has turned to ESRA for help to find Maggie the perfect Forever Home where she can be the only dog.

Maggie's favorite things are being with her people both inside and out, walks, hikes, sniffing, swimming, learning new tricks, cuddling and -- did we mention sniffing?

Maggie is used to being allowed on the furniture (including beds) and wants to continue to do this in her new home.  At night Maggie prefers to sleep in her crate beside her humans’ bed.   Maggie doesn't like to be left alone, so a retired family or someone that works from home will be high on her wish list.

Maggie does not like other dogs or cats.  Her current family has worked very hard to help her get over this, but she has not changed. Therefore, being the only dog is a must for her.  Maggie has no experience with small children, so we don't know if she would like them; teenagers would be fine, though.  

In her new home, Maggie will need a fenced yard but one with no dogs living on the other side in the neighbors’ yards.  She is an active girl who may do best in a rural area.   Maggie is loving, playful, obedient and gentle with her family.  She loves to play and knows many commands such as Sit, Down, Stay and Come. She also does advanced commands such as high-fives and roll over.

Maggie is house and crate trained, up to date on preventative vaccinations and microchipped.  Like many Springers, she gets the occasional ear infection and she takes a daily pill for urinary leakage.  Maggie is good with the groomer.

Currently Maggie lives in a rural area and is used to a daily walk or run.  She loves to swim and is very happy when she gets to play in the water.  Maggie rides well in a car.

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

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