ESRA#:2017-271FL

Age:9 years
Gender:Female
Color:Black & White
Weight:65 lbs
Variety:Bench
Envy is a lovely black and white girl who finds herself looking for a new Forever Home. She is a mellow Springer girl who is happy just to be your shadow. Envy is the embodiment of what we call a Velcro dog. Cuddling on the couch with her people is Envy's very favorite activity!

She is up to date on her vaccines, heartworm negative and like any Springer, her ears need to be cleaned regularly. Her foster mom thinks she may have been fed people food in the past but she has now adapted to yummy grain-free food that makes her coat shine!

Envy walks well on a leash, is house trained and loves to go for rides in the car. She's fine with other dogs but mostly ignore them. She is untested with cats. She is such a loving little girl! She still wants the company of her foster mom when she goes outside and we think she will be fine without a fenced yard as long as she is supervised.

Envy would do best in a Forever Home where there is not a lot of activity. She would be perfect for retirees or a family with a quieter lifestyle. She will be a wonderful walking companion, home companion and just a lovely addition to her adopter's family. One wiggle of that little tail is all you need to fall in love with Envy!

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

I AM the Mighty Quinn. You've read about me. You might have seen me on the news, but this..this is ME! My past is a little scary, but again, I am MIGHTY so here goes.

I was found in the road after being hit head on by a car. I have my own "other" page which you can click on for all the medical details. (The link is right under the heart at the top right of my listing.) The page says I'm Special Needs, but in all honesty I'm just downright special. In spite of all this medical mumbo-jumbo, I am a lover boy and I have so much life to live and so much love to give.

I'm told by many that I am a most handsome liver and white Springer with freckles on my belly and feet. Estimates of my age range from 5 to 7, though I'll never tell. Trust me: The people say I am handsome...they're not kidding.

I am ready for my Forever Home, BUT I will still need to continue my regimen of physical therapy. I'm very good at it. And the people who help me are so nice! Oh and until I am all healed, my therapy is already paid for, so that's a bonus. Lots of people cared about me, so this will cost you only your time. I need shorter walks than most dogs while I heal, but I promise I'm very good at walking on a leash.

I will need to be on supplements for the rest of my life (Dasuquin, herbal joint supplements) and maybe an occasional pain pill as I age (to perfection I should add). If you want a dog who will love and adore you, who wants to be your best friend, and you have the time and the love to help me get all the way better, then this could be the start of something big.

Call. Let's meet. Soon. Real soon.
Love,
Quinn

Age:10 years
Gender:Female
Color:Liver & White
Weight:45 lbs
Variety:Bench
Introducing Layla, a gentle soul who would make a wonderful companion for the right family. Her foster mom describes this lovely senior lady as quiet, loving, sweet and laid back. She doesn't act like a senior and still has plenty of spunk. She is active and curious and has no trouble hopping up into her foster mom's truck and heading out for adventure. She had a great time on a recent camping trip and loved hiking, exploring and sniffing all the interesting scents.

Even though Layla has bounced around a bit, she makes friends easily. She approaches visitors with a wagging tail and then sits down and waits for some petting. She gets along fine with other dogs and people of all ages. In her Forever Home, she will need a doggie door or someone home much of the day and willing to take her out for potty breaks. Layla knows her basic commands and walks nicely on her leash. This smart dog has done a little bit of countersurfing and has figured out how to open kitchen drawers and look for snacks.

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

Status: Adopted
Date:2017-10-23
  
Age:5 years
Gender:Male
Color:L&W Tricolor
Weight:52 lbs
Variety:Bench
Meet Nash, a happy, active and extraordinarily handsome tri-colored Springer boy in search of his Forever Family. Nash is always up for a walk, run or romp in the yard. He is friendly to all people, housetrained and knows some basic commands.

Nash does have one issue -- he is food aggressive. He gets overly excited at mealtime and will protect and defend his food. His foster dad has been hand-feeding Nash and has seen some improvement in this behavior, but ongoing training may be necessary. If Nash is the only dog in his Forever Home, he simply needs to be left alone and undisturbed while eating his kibble.

Nash is a sensitive fellow who wants to please. He is a good watchdog but has been happy to meet and greet neighbors and visitors to his foster home. He would rather not be crated but behaves well when left home alone uncrated.

His ideal family would be an active one. He has lots of energy and enthusiasm and would make a great partner for daily runs or long walks. A fenced yard would be a plus. Because of his food guarding issues, he needs to be in a household without small children. Nash does well with other dogs after a proper introduction and seemed to ignore a cat that wandered into his yard. While we think he'd do best as an only dog, he would also do fine with another friendly dog and dog-savvy parents.

Please consider sharing your life and home with this fun-loving boy!

Age:9 years
Gender:Female
Color:Black & White
Weight:40 lbs
Variety:Bench
RueBee was given her name because she is quite the talker. As you can probably guess, Rue-Rue is her favorite song to sing. She is a beautiful black and white girl who came into ESRA with some other family members. She is heartworm negative and up to date on her vaccinations.

Until RueBee came into rescue, she spent her life outside. She is thrilled to now be an inside dog living the good life in her foster home! RueBee would prefer to have her human all to herself. She is currently living with two other female dogs that are as laid back as she is, and she has no problems. She is fine with cats and does well with children over 9 years old. Young children might be too much for this mellow gal. RueBee would be a wonderful companion for a retired adopter or someone who could spend a lot of time with her. Her favorite pastime is hugging up to her foster Mom, trying to convince her it is time for a nap. She is also a great watch dog and will let you know if someone enters the yard.

RueBee's foster mom reports that she is a sweetheart, outgoing and a very happy girl. RueBee knows the commands "Sit" and "Come" and is completely housetrained. She is discovering love, attention and companionship under ESRA's care. This lovely girl will Rue-Rue with joy when she is adopted and home at last!

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

ESRA#:2017-323FL
Status: Adopted
Date:2017-10-06
  
Age:11 months
Gender:Female
Color:Liver & White
Weight:30 lbs
Variety:Bench
Sweet Lucy is a beautiful Springer pup looking for her Forever Home. Lucy's foster mom reports she is as sweet as can be and friendly to everyone she meets. She is curious and outgoing and does fine with other dogs. She has not been kid or cat tested, but she's so submissive that her foster mom doesn't think she'll have a problem with little ones or kitties.

Lucy is all Springer pup and therefore very energetic. She will need a Forever Home that can give her all the playtime and exercise she needs. Lucy still needs a little bit of help with her potty training but already sleeps through the night in a dog bed without any accidents. With a little patience, she will undoubtedly be a quick leaner and she is crate trained which will help a lot with that. As with all our pups, her adopter will be required to enroll Lucy in a puppy training class that uses positive reinforcement techniques. Springers will do anything for a treat!

Lucy has a lovely white blaze with an adorable sprinkling of freckles. She has not quite grown into her legs but Lucy doesn't know that! She is a delight. She loves running in the yard with her canine buddies, exploring, giving and receiving hugs and playing with toys. Everyone who meets her falls in love.

Lucy promises to be a loving, devoted companion to her new adopter. Wouldn't you like to give Lucy the Forever Home she deserves?

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

ESRA#:2017-238AL
Status: Adopted
Date:2017-10-06
  
Age:2 years
Gender:Male
Color:Liver & White
Weight:25 lbs
Variety:Mix
Brody is a sweet, energetic petite Springer mix with a long furry tail that he loves to wag when he hears a happy voice. He knows his name and will come when called. He is an energetic youngster who has been known to chew things, so Brody would benefit from some additional training. A group class situation using positive methods of reinforcement would be ideal for him.

He'll spend his time in your backyard hunting lizards -- you will never have to worry about a live one getting into your house. He loves everyone he meets but since he has not been around young children, a home with older children who can play and run with him or an active adult family would probably be best. He loves other dogs, too, but will submissively show his tummy when he meets them before getting up to play and run with them (and you if you are willing). At 25 pounds, he is absolutely the sweetest boy you will ever meet who just wants to hunt lizards and cuddle with you at the end of the day.

Brody was heartworm positive when transferred from the shelter to ESRA and had severe lung congestion. With medications and time, he went from a lethargic dog to a Springer full of energy, a complete 180-degree change.

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

Age:9 years

Weight:49 lbs
Variety:Bench
Hello, my name is Addie! I spent a great deal of my life in a backyard but my foster mom is amazed at my dignified manners. I surprised everybody by knowing "Sit," "Off," and "No." I really showed my stuff when I walked in the local park with my two foster sisters and brother. My foster mom had all of us walking together and in the same direction. Everybody that went by us was impressed. She says I walk better on a leash than my foster siblings.

I love to watch for birds, squirrels, and rabbits. I have a high prey drive and Mom won't let me chase them. My previous owner also said I did not get along with cats.

I am a love bug and I will curl right up next to you to make sure you know you are loved. I am very smart and I pick up on routines and commands quickly.

I think I would like someone who stays at home most of the time. I sleep in a crate at night but don't really like it. My foster mom says it is for the best while in foster care and I have to take her word for it!

She also thinks it is best if I am in a one-dog family as I would prefer to get all of the attention to make up for those years in the backyard.

Love, Addie

Status: Adopted
Date:2017-09-29
  
Age:6 years
Gender:Female
Color:Unique coat
Weight:45 lbs
Variety:Mix
Woof! Woof! I'm Cali and life is good here with my foster mom. I've learned new things like my name, "Sit," "Come," and "Lay Down." I'm trying to understand why they keep telling me to "Stay" when all I want to do is be next to them.

I'm very friendly with dogs, but never met the thing mom calls "cats." The last few weeks I've had two teenage girls visiting and I love them so much. They feed me, brush me, snuggle me and let me sleep in the bed.
My humans take me on a walk every night. Grammy has even trained me to walk next to a scooter. I make friends with every dog and person I meet on our walks.

I worry I won't be adopted because I'm a mix and all black but my foster mom says there's a home for every dog. She assures me I will find a home with humans to love. I look forward to meeting you!


Cali is a Springer mix (likely Springer/Black Lab) who is estimated to be about 6 years old. She came into rescue covered in fleas and ticks and all skin and bones after bring dropped off in a shelter's after hours area with nothing more than a crate. Thankfully, someone called ESRA and Cali became an official member within 48 hours.

Since being rescued, she has gained some much needed weight. Now that she's healthy, her fur is soft and shiny, and her bald spots are filling in.
Cali LOVES snuggles, walks and food! She's a typical Velcro Springer, following her foster mother and grandmother around the house, just to ensure they arrive safely at their destination. She can/will lay in your lap or next to you ALL DAY long.

She walks nicely on a leash, until she spots a squirrel or rabbit, normal young Springer behavior. She is good when bathed and brushed, takes treats nicely and goes into her crate for dinner. She has learned basic commands quickly, though it's hard to stay when there's so much to do. Of course she is housetrained. Cali is a little scared of storms and hides under/behind furniture.

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

Age:11 years

Color:Black & White
Weight:30 lbs
Variety:Mix
Tasha is a pretty, liver and white female and is always ready for a hug.
She is spayed, up to date on all her vaccinations and heartworm negative. That's what we like to see!

Per her foster Dad, Tasha is a sweetheart. She can be a bit shy at first but quickly gets over that when she realizes love and affection are being offered by her human.

Did we mention that Tasha adores hugs? She also gives them. Tasha will get up on her hind legs, put her paws on your shoulders and hug you right back! She is a Velcro dog, always wanting to be with her people and is eager to sit on your lap. She loves the other dogs in her foster home but likes to be front and center when affection is being offered.

Tasha has a little gray on her face but don't let that fool you! Unlike human ladies, she does not have access to a hair stylist.

Tasha is a lovely Springer patiently waiting for her Forever Home. How about you? A lifetime of Springer hugs and kisses await her new family.

ESRA#:2017-136GA
Status: Adopted

Age:3 years
Gender:Male
Color:Liver & White
Weight:58 lbs
Variety:Bench
Introducing Henry, the 58-pound Springer lap dog and magician! Henry is super smart and can unlatch gates and open doors. This may be how he escaped a previous home and ended up in custody of animal control and then ESRA. He will most definitely need a Forever Home with a secure fence and locks on all doors and gates.

Henry is your typical Velcro Springer: friendly, playful and well behaved. He knows "Sit" and "Stay" and walks nicely on his leash. In foster care, he gobbles his dinner down but then sits and nicely waits while the resident dogs finish their meals. He loves to be groomed and takes treats gently and politely.

He is an active guy with a high prey drive who wants to run and play and chase away the birds and squirrels. For this reason, he needs a home without cats or other small animals. Some other playful dogs would be a plus. He's good with kids, adults, men, women, young and old -- he loves every human.

He has a unique profile due to an issue with his jawline that is not causing Henry any pain. "We think it's just something special he was born with so we'd pick him out of a crowd and know for sure he was awesome," says his foster mom.

Unfortunately, Henry will need to be less active for a few months while he undergoes heartworm treatment. For this reason, we are open to a foster-to-adopt situation for this sweet boy. He is only three years old, so once he gets the all clear from his veterinarian, he should have many years of romps in the yard and walks through the park in his future.

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

Age:4 years
Gender:Female
Color:Liver & White
Weight:45 lbs
Variety:Bench
Looking for a sweet, smart and fun-loving companion? Kona just might be the Springer girl for you! This little lady LOVES to hold hands and will happily offer her paw to any interested humans. She is friendly and outgoing and meets people nicely. Need to water your garden? She will supervise and wait impatiently for a chance to drink that fresh, cold water right out of the hose.

Kona appears to have completed some obedience training in the past. She is generally well-behaved and obeys basic commands. She is also an excellent watchdog.

Her social skills with other dogs are a work in progress. Really, she is much more interested in hanging out with humans than with other dogs. We think she would do well with older children but might overwhelm smaller kids. She is co-existing peacefully in a foster home with several other dogs and (after a little bit of a rocky beginning) ignores most of them but has made a couple doggie friends. She would probably be happiest as the only pet in her family. Cats would not be safe around Kona.

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

Age:5 years
Gender:Male
Color:Liver & White
Weight:50 lbs
Variety:Bench
Lucky came into the care of ESRA in November of 2016 from a shelter in Arkansas. He has some medical needs, so his ideal foster home ended up being in Baton Rouge, LA. Aptly named, Lucky found ESRA just in time!

In spite of a severely dislocated elbow on his left front leg, stoic Lucky is a pretty high-energy fellow. He's quite social with other dogs and has shown absolutely NO aggression. He appears to be a leader dog and has taken charge of his foster brothers and sisters since the previous leader in his current pack moved on. He's very much a typical young Springer boy and is sweet and gentle.

Lucky is a happy boy and a Velcro Springer who loves human companionship. He will greet you with a lick! He is also VERY visual and loves chasing a light of any kind, whether it be a flashlight or sun reflecting on a door. He's just an all-around fantastic dog who will make someone a great companion once his orthopedic issues are addressed. He'd do well with other dogs too!

Lucky's medical needs have earned him status as one of ESRA's Special Needs dogs. You can read more about his journey by clicking on the Special Needs Icon at the top of this screen. It is our hope to repair his badly damaged limb to enable him to live an active, pain-free life. Once we have accomplished that goal, Lucky will be looking for a special family to call his very own.

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