Please meet beautiful Stella! We are most delighted to have this young, gorgeous, and super-sweet Springer girl in our program and to announce that she is now available for adoption.

Stella came to ESRA the first week of January, so she has now been in foster care for approximately four weeks. We do not know much about her early life, but we believe that she led a very sheltered existence without much exposure to the world beyond her fenced yard. When we got Stella, everything was new to her, and it all sparked much curiosity! She has blossomed under our care. She takes daily walks, has many doggie playmates, and is adjusting quite well to all of the new folks she meets and the daily experiences she has. We were told that she was not housetrained as she was not allowed in the house. Despite that, she succeeded at a rapid clip and is now fully trained. She has had only one accident in her foster home. This is a smart little Springer girl, and she makes us so proud. Stella sleeps through the night, and she knows how to use the doggie door. Stella is good with the commands Sit and Stay. She trains eagerly, wants to please, and quickly catches on.

Stella is a cuddle bug with children, with adults, and with other dogs. She loves to climb into your lap and cuddle; she loves to climb into the chair and cuddle with her foster dog friends; she loves to sleep on the bed with her foster mom and cuddle, cuddle, cuddle! She is just one of the sweetest Springers. She desires the companionship of humans and other dogs. She is a Velcro Springer for sure.

We have gotten to know Stella well. She has been with a young Springer at her foster home, and it is obvious that she needs a playmate. Her Forever home should have another young dog for Stella to play with, so this will be a necessary condition of adoption. Stella would be great with a family that includes kids, but we recommend children aged five and above. Her behavior with cats is unknown.

ESRA has invested much in Stella's veterinary care. She is up to date on shots and has been spayed. She has been heartworm tested, and we had her teeth cleaned. Other customary testing has also been performed on Stella. She is healthy and is currently living comfortably in a nice warm home with a loving foster family, but of course she desires a Forever Home of her very own. If your family might be the perfect fit for this lovely girl, please contact her foster mom at the email address below right away!

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.

Age:4 years
Gender:Female
Color:Black & White
Weight:50 lbs
Variety:Field
We estimate this gorgeous girl Rosie to be about four years old. This black-and-white, sweet, loving girl was found as a stray and ended up in a shelter. Luckily ESRA came along to spring her and help find her Forever Home.

Rosie is very shy with strangers, but once she gets to know you she is very loving. Rosie is afraid of loud noises and will urinate submissively when nervous or forced to do something (like sit for a photograph) that she is unsure of. The family that adopts Rosie will need to understand her shyness and continue to work slowly with her to gain more confidence. Attending an obedience class with Rosie would be a good bonding experience and possibly also help with her confidence.

Rosie came to the shelter intact and is now spayed. She was not house trained but is learning with the help of her foster family. Rosie will need continued positive voice training to be fully house trained. Rosie is up to date on all vaccinations, walks well on a leash, gets along well with other dogs and cats and loves her people. Rosie is comfortable in a crate and will often choose to sleep in it during the day. Rosie loves to play in the snow and go for walks, but she is currently out of shape and needs to build up to longer walks.

Her foster parents have fallen in love with her and feel she will flourish with continued positive voice training to help her gain her confidence. Rosie would do best in a calm household with another friendly, playful and outgoing dog to help her explore the world. Because of Rosie's shyness, her foster family may require that her adoptive family meet with her a few times so that she can get to know you before moving. This sweet, gentle, lovable girl will be worth the effort.

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

Status: Adopted
Date:2018-02-05
  
Age:3 years
Gender:Male
Color:Liver & White
Weight:47 lbs
Variety:Bench
Liam is ready for adoption! Despite his past, he is the sweetest, cutest and happiest Springer boy and loaded with Springer energy. When he arrived, he weighed a mere thirty-two pounds and was completely emaciated due to a severe intestinal parasite infestation. His condition was absolutely heartbreaking.

We had to put fifteen pounds on him before we could neuter him. Once he recovered, he then had to endure heartworm treatment. His road to recovery has been long and tough. He is finally a healthy forty-seven pounds with a gorgeous, dark rich and thick shiny coat -- a far cry from what he was when he came into our program.

Liam is amazing with other dogs. He would very much enjoy a young playmate in his Forever Home. He is a bit of a "diamond in the rough" with the potential to be the most wonderful family member. He has come such a long way thus far, but he will require obedience training to make him a well-behaved member of the family. He is housetrained and crate trained. He would be great with older children. He is unknown with cats.

Liam needs LOTS of time and room to run in a safe and enclosed yard. Of course, if we could find him a home with some property, that would be ideal. We would like to find him a stay-at-home or work-at-home family where he can enjoy a tremendous amount of love and attention. He's an excellent passenger in the car and is always up for an adventure. He is very well-socialized with everyone, so you can take him anywhere.

Liam is now healthy and very strong. He is heartworm free, has no more parasites, current on his vaccinations, neutered and microchipped for safekeeping.

If you're ready for a high-energy pup and will commit to working with him, please contact his Case Manager.

Tucker, right, with his friend Charlotte

ESRA#:2017-457CA
Status: Adopted
Date:2018-02-04
  
Age:5 months
Gender:Male
Color:B&W Tricolor
Weight:23 lbs
Variety:Bench

PLEASE NOTE: Because we expect that many people will be interested in Tucker, We will be considering ONLY those applicants who have a current APPROVED application on file with us. As noted below, Tucker's new home MUST include at least one other young dog. Anyone interested in Tucker must be willing to bring the entire family, including their current dogs, to meet him.
Hi, everyone! my name is Tucker. I am a black-and-white tricolored Springer who just turned four months old, and people tell me that I'm very handsome. I do not remember much about my life before my foster family took me in, but I am so glad they did! I like to spend my days eating, playing, and sleeping in a comfy spot on the floor or in my dog bed (or wherever I may land when I've worn myself out). I get three meals a day here, and the food is pretty good. And sometimes, when I am a really good boy, I get treats!

I spend a lot of time romping with my best friend here. Her name is Charlotte, and she is a bit older and bigger than me, but I give her a good run. I like to steal bones and toys from her so that she will chase me! Besides Charlotte, there are three other Springers here, and I get along with them all. I must say that they have been very patient with my puppy antics. I really like the human family here, too. They spend a lot of time following me around with a camera, and they love to tell me how funny I am. I like to entertain them! I also like to follow them around as they go about their day.

I am a very happy and smart boy. I know that I won't be here much longer, and I also know that I can trust my foster family to find me the perfect new Forever Home. I sure hope my new home has another puppy for me to play with, along with very active human parents who will teach me how to be the best Springer ever. Could your family be the one?

Love and puppy kisses,
Tucker


From Tucker’s foster mom: Tucker is a happy, sweet, and active Springer puppy who is just figuring out the world. He is housetrained and uses two doggy doors to get out to the yard whenever he needs to. He uses his crate during the day to hang out in when we have to be away. He will sleep in his crate at night next to our bed, but he would really prefer to cuddle with us. Tucker gets along fine with all four of the resident Springers as well as the cat.

Tucker has been in his foster home for about six weeks now, and he has learned a great deal. As well as being housetrained and crate trained, he knows the commands Sit, Wait, and Down. He is working on his leash skills. As all puppies do, Tucker needs to attend at least one obedience class and be given consistent follow-through by his new family. Obedience classes will let Tucker know what is expected of him and who is in charge, and they will provide the invaluable socialization skills that all puppies need.

Tucker is a very high-energy boy, so he will need lots of playtime with at least one young dog in his new home. Older children for him to love and interact with would be an added bonus.

Tucker has just been neutered, is up to date on his vaccinations, is microchipped, and has tested negative for heartworm. He is a happy, healthy, energetic Springer puppy looking for the perfect family. Tucker’s ideal family is one that will help him continue his journey to becoming a great Springer. If you meet the REQUIREMENTS noted at the top of this listing, please contact his case manager at the email address below.

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

Status: Adopted
Date:2018-01-31
  
Age:2 years
Gender:Male
Color:Liver & White
Weight:32 lbs
Variety:Bench
Georgie is a one-of-a-kind Springer with sparkling hazel eyes. He may be a little guy, but he has a giant heart.

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

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

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

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

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

Please note: Due to the heat of the summer months, the airlines will not fly dogs during this season. Please don’t ask us to do that.

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

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.

My name is Mari! I am a petite, field-bred pup who is about twelve months old. I am hoping to find a Forever Family that can teach me the ropes and give me lots of love and exercise.

Let me tell you a bit about myself. I was surrendered to a local shelter by my original family who decided I needed more than they could give. I am happy to say that they took good care of me while I was with them, as I am very healthy without any doggie diseases or parasites. I am up to date on all of my vaccinations and I will be spayed very soon.

My foster parents have taught me how to take care of my business outdoors (at least most of the time!). I love to play with their other Springer children. I haven’t met another dog or person I don’t like, although I haven’t met a cat as of yet. I sleep all night in my very own crate in my foster parents’ bedroom without making a peep. I am trying to learn not to counter surf, jump on people who come to visit and how to walk on a leash. I still have some work to do in those departments, though.

My foster parents tell me I am precious and that I should find a wonderful Forever Home in no time at all! I don’t want to be picky, but my perfect home would have a big backyard to play in with another dog or two. I need parents who are very active and willing to take the time to help me learn how to be a good dog all of the time. Might that be you?

Let me know - I'm waiting!
Mari

Interested in Max and Abbey? Then read about bonded pairs and the benefits of adopting these special best friends.
Max and Abbey are seven years old, black and white, and very nice dogs. They aren’t litter mates, but have been together since they were pups. Abbey is six months older. Max gets anxious when Abbey isn’t around. He is a goofy boy who loves to run outside and fetch his ball. Abbey is calmer, although she enjoys her Frisbee.

These two have received good care, but their owner is forced to relinquish them because of a grandchild with severe allergies.

Max and Abbey are house trained and use a dog door. They are great with children and other dogs, but they don’t get along with cats. They are used to sleeping with their humans. Max has had allergies and ear infections in the past, but since switching his food to salmon and pea he is doing well.

The ideal Forever Home for Max and Abbey is one with an active family and a decent-sized yard that will keep these two beauties together.

If you are interested in giving them a true Forever Home, please contact their coordinator.

Oh my gosh! I am so excited--I'm wiggling all over! My name is Max, and I am looking for a new Forever Home where I will be loved and played with. I am a tall, beautiful, typical Springer pup. My previous family decided that they didn't have time for an active, growing puppy, so they called ESRA for help.

Now I am here at my foster mom's house, and I'm having a wonderful time romping and wrestling with the resident dogs and working on my manners. I've never had any training before. I try really hard to do what I'm asked to, but it is soooo hard to sit still! I think an obedience class with my new family would be a lot of fun, and it would help to smooth out my rough edges.

If you are patient and want to help me learn to be the best dog I can be, I would love to meet you! Please contact my foster mom at the e-mail address below.

Kisses,
Max


From Max's foster mom: Max is a wonderful, sweet, rambunctious Springer who, more than anything, would like to find a Forever Home with a playmate. Max previously lived in a large household filled with kids and other family members. He has had no obedience training, and he is just now learning to sit on command. In typical Springer fashion, though, he wants to please and is a quick learner. I anticipate that by observing the resident dogs and continuing with our mini-lessons, Max will soon learn some basic manners. Obedience classes are going to be a requirement for Max and his new family. He is a large puppy who is very strong, and obedience work will teach both him and his new family how to relate to each other. Once Max has learned his basic commands, it is my opinion that he would greatly excel at an activity such as agility, Frisbee, or flyball. He would also enjoy frequent jogging or hiking with his new family.

Max is up to date on all his shots, is microchipped, has tested negative for heartworm, and is neutered. He has a great personality! He is always smiling and has a full body wiggle, even while he's racing around the yard.

This happy, wonderful boy is looking for a Springer-savvy person or family who will be willing to do whatever it takes to give him the love and care he needs and deserves. Obedience training, follow-through, and lots of attention and exercise are essential to allow Max to become a well-mannered, happy Springer. Max would also benefit from having another dog of similar age, size, and activity level in the family to play with.

Max is available now for adoption, and all applicants will be screened closely so that we can find the perfect Forever Home for him. Are you willing to make this commitment and give Max a place in your heart and your family? If so, please have a preliminarily approved application on file before you inquire, and then prepared to fall in love.

Leroy loves people! He loves to meet and greet men, women and children. He loved being the center of attention at the vet’s office. That said, he doesn’t demand attention.

Our handsome boy does just fine in the car and goes easily into his crate at home. Leroy is a very good boy in the house. He is well housetrained and could probably learn the doggy door if needed. There’s no digging, counter surfing or chewing (well, sometimes on his leash). He sleeps through the night and waits for his people in the morning.

This smart, sensitive boy has been a bit bewildered since he was abandoned in rural Kansas. We expect that as he becomes more secure, he will continue to relax and blossom. He has had some help from the resident female Springer who has shown him the ropes. He takes his cues from her and accepts her as a companion.

Outdoors Leroy needs some training. A harness has helped with leash pulling. Although he looks forward to his walks, he is okay with one or two twenty-minute walks per day. He reacts to close encounters with some dogs and his people need to allow him space on his walks. Leroy has shown no interest in toys or playing so far and has been unresponsive to overtures from his foster sister.

Leroy would love living with a family -- more people to give him attention! We suggest adults and children over age six. He could be an only dog, but has done quite well with a calm female Springer. No small dogs or cats for Leroy.

If you think you might be the right Forever Family to help Leroy on his journey, please let us know! He will give love, companionship and loyalty in return.

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

Hello, everyone! My name is Drew and, very sadly, I am looking for a new Forever Home. I have lived my entire life with my owners and their other dogs. They love me very much, but I am so attached to my mom that I don’t want any other animal around her, canine or feline. Mom and Dad made the very tough decision that I would be happier being the only dog in a family. I am a typical Springer who enjoys being with people of all ages – I have never met a human I don’t love. Even though I am a large Springer, I am very gentle with all I meet. I should also add that I am an expert cuddler, and I'm happiest when I am invited to sit or sleep next to my human. Besides being with my people, my favorite activity is playing with my toys. I have great manners, and I never, ever get into things that I shouldn’t.

If you think I would be a good fit for your family, please get in touch with my case manager. I'm eager to meet you!

Love,
Drew


From Drew's case manager: This great, loveable Springer has been loved and nurtured his entire life. His owner is a performance exhibitor, and Drew is a finished Champion with titles in Novice Rally and Beginning Novice. Drew gets along with the other dogs he meets at exhibitions, and he often attempts to engage them in play. However, at home he definitely does not want to share his owners with any of the other animals. When he is alone with his people, he is a loving, goofy Springer who is very well behaved both in the house and outside. Drew has outstanding obedience training. He walks well on leash, loves to play with his toys, and, more than anything, wants to be with his humans. He loves everyone from kids to seniors!

Drew is a gentle soul with a true Springer heart, and he wants to please more than anything. He will do perfectly fine when left home alone, but he would dearly love to have someone home with him most of the time. Like most Springers, Drew needs to have a large, securely fenced yard to sniff and play in. He craves a family that will make him an integral part of their everyday lives. He would excel at therapy work if his new family had an interest in that area.

Drew is up to date on his vaccinations. He has been neutered and microchipped and has tested negative for heartworm. He is a healthy, happy, wonderful boy, and he's looking for a fun and loving Forever Family to belong to. Do you have the time to devote to Drew and a place in your heart and family for him? If so, please have an approved application on file and be prepared to fall in love.

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

Hello, everyone! My name is Fred. Somehow I ended up in a shelter, but then a very nice gentleman from ESRA rescued me. I am a typical Springer who enjoys being with people, and my foster mom calls me a “cuddle-bug." Even though I'm kind of a big boy (a lot bigger than a bug, for sure!), I am very gentle with everyone I meet. People are great, and I love to be around them!

When I was picked up at the shelter, I had a horrible ear infection and cherry eye. But thanks to ESRA's care, both are clearing up, and I am starting to feel like my old self again. I have lots more energy now, and I love to run, play, explore, and chase--I am a Springer, after all! I do have to admit that absolutely no stuffed toys are safe around me. Oh, what fun it is to tear them up and watch the stuffing fly!

I'm looking for a Forever Home with a family who will take me on walks and other adventures, play with me, and let me snuggle with them. I've got so much love to share! If I can share it with you, please let my case manager know right away.

Affectionately,
Fred


From Fred's case manager: This guy is one great big, loveable Springer! He adores being cuddled, and he will quickly claim any available lap. We are delighted to see Fred's true personality emerging as he regains his health and strength. He has become very active, and he will therefore need a Forever Family who will take him for lots of walks and engage him in backyard play.

This gentle soul with a true Springer heart wants to please his humans more than anything. Like most Springers, he needs a large yard to romp in, and he would dearly love to have someone at home with him most of the time. Fred's strong prey drive has been exhibited by his chasing of the resident cats in his foster home, so it will be best that he goes to a home with no small animals – feline, canine, or otherwise. Although Fred gets along well with the resident Springer in his foster home, any interested adopter who currently has a dog will need to arrange a meet-and-greet for the two dogs to see if they are a good match. Fred will do well as the only dog in the family as long as someone is home for part of each day. He will benefit from an obedience class, which will not only let Fred know what is expected of him but will also encourage and solidify the developing bond with his new family.

Fred is up to date on all his shots, is microchipped, has been neutered, and has tested negative for heartworm. He does have some age-related hearing loss and the beginning of cataracts, but these things don't hinder him at all. He is a healthy, happy, wonderful boy who is looking for a fun and loving Forever Family to belong to. Do you have time to devote to Fred and a place in your heart and your home for him? If so, please have an approved application on file and be prepared to fall in love!

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

ESRA#:2017-1TX
Status: Adopted
Date:2017-12-13
  
Age:5 years
Gender:Male
Color:Liver & White
Weight:43 lbs
Variety:Bench
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.

ESRA#:2017-216WA
Status: Adopted
Date:2017-12-10
  
Age:8 years
Gender:Female
Color:Black & White
Weight:45 lbs
Variety:Bench
Murphy is a black-and-white eight-year-old beautiful girl looking for her Forever home.  Her relinquishing family loved her very much, but she was not happy when an infant joined the family. As a result, she has spent the past three years moving between homes with friends and family members. This has been hard on Murphy, so they turned to ESRA to find her a stable environment so she will never need to move again.

Murphy would be happiest with a family that is retired or works from home where she could be the only dog. No small children for this girl, but we believe she would be okay in a home with teenagers. 

Murphy does well with other dogs in a dog park, but prefers to be the only dog in her home.  She might do well with a submissive male, but this alpha girl should not live with another female dog.   

Murphy's foster dad reports that she loves to snuggle and will talk when excited, usually with a howl.  This happens at meal time and is quite charming.  Murphy sleeps on her own bed and does not need a crate.  She likes watching television and gets excited when she sees animals on TV, usually other dogs.  Murphy loves car rides and wants to sit in the front seat with her paw on his gearshift hand.

Murphy is spayed, microchipped and up to date on all preventative vaccinations. 

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

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

ESRA#:2017-278OR
Status: Adopted

Age:9 years
Gender:Male

Variety:Field
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.
