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.

Tucker is a very sweet, smart boy who has an endless amount of energy and a big personality. He came into ESRA's care from a high-kill shelter. Tucker was picked up as a stray, and his owner never claimed him. Tucker has been brought up to date on all his vetting, and he is now a healthy, happy boy who is just bursting with enthusiasm for life!

When our wonderful volunteers first picked Tucker up, they knew he would need a little extra help. Tucker had not been in a car before, and he needed assistance to get in because he didn't know what to do. He pulled hard when he was on leash, and the extent of his training seemed to be that he could sit (more or less). Tucker was just a big puppy, chewy and licky,who loved attention and thought everything was a toy for him. After his initial vet exam, he grabbed the vet's fur boots, the potted plants in the waiting room, and a lady's purse. Needless to say, Tucker's lack of training and experience, combined with his high energy and exuberance, made him a handful. We have been most fortunate to have a professional dog trainer as a foster mom for Tucker. She has been working with him for some months, and she feels that he is now ready to find his new home.

Here is what Tucker's foster mom says: Tucker is now very well versed in most basic obedience commands. He attends obedience and agility classes weekly. He has been introduced to agility equipment, and he shows quite an aptitude for the sport. Although Tucker has not been introduced to toddlers, he is very good with children over seven years of age. Several children have even worked him in his obedience class. Tucker's housetraining has improved in the months he has been here. He is crate trained, and he likes his crate. Because of his activity level, Tucker sometimes consumes large quantities of water. At these times he needs to be let out more frequently.

Tucker gets along well with other dogs, almost too well. When he is paired with another dog that also enjoys play, things tend to get a little rowdy and out of control. It's like having two frat boys in the house! For this reason, we think that Tucker would do best as an only dog or paired with a mature dog who knows how to set boundaries. He cannot be left alone for eight hours without human companionship.

We also think that because of Tucker's activity level, he would do best with an owner who has an active lifestyle, such as someone who is a runner or who would like to get involved in a dog sport. Tucker would excel in such things as agility, nose work, or dock diving. He also loves to play fetch and tug, and he enjoys chasing butterflies, bugs, and birds. He is also known to be a caterpillar killer. He is all right with cats, but he will chase them if given the chance. Tucker needs a large fenced yard with plenty of room to run and explore.

If you are looking for a companion to enjoy the outdoors with you, to share adventures, and to cuddle with you at the end of an active day, Tucker is your guy! This exceptional Springer needs an exceptional family who will make sure that he gets sufficient exercise and the continued training he needs to thrive. If you are the special family that will appreciate Tucker's exuberance and all things Springer, we would love to tell you more about him.

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

We are pleased to introduce Olaf. Just look at that sweet face! Our ESRA volunteer heard about Olaf after someone dropped him off in the night box of a shelter to be put down. He was obese and had a "hot spot" skin irritation, but as soon as the volunteer saw him, she knew that Olaf was a very special boy and well worth saving.

After having received a complete vetting, a nutritious diet, and lots of TLC from his foster mom, Olaf is doing just great. He is healthy, has no known medical issues, and has plenty of energy to enjoy life. He loves to meet new people and likes to be with kids. If you are in the mood to play, he is your boy--ready, willing, and enthusiastic!

Olaf's foster mom says that she doesn't know how anyone could resist this one-of-a-kind cutie. He gets along just fine with the two resident Springers at his foster home, and when the cat tries to bully him, Olaf just walks away. Even when the bird cages needed cleaning, Olaf watched the process with interest but did not try to hunt the birds.

This little guy is happiest when he is with his people, and he is content to sit next to you without having to be on your lap. He especially enjoys his walks, and if your route goes by a pond, he will wade or even lie down in it! When it's mealtime, Olaf is right there to keep you on schedule by barking until he is fed. He loves his crate, has good house manners, walks nicely on the leash, and rides well in the car.

Olaf is looking for someone who will give him the time and attention he needs. He must have a fenced yard or be kept on the leash because he can't resist going exploring. But Olaf really just wants to be with you, no matter what you are doing, and he will be an affectionate companion for some lucky family. If you think that family might be yours, please contact his case manager right away at the e-mail address below.

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

Meet the sweet and loving Jake. He lives and loves life to the fullest. †Jake is a people pleaser. He loves to be around people, and if he can sneak his way into your lap, he will do so. You can tell when Jake is really comfortable because he lies on his back with his paws in the air.†

Jake came to his foster family still learning how to be a proper puppy. The foster family has attended puppy training classes with him. Jake learned how to Sit, Shake, Lie Down, Stay, Roll Over -- and he even learned that when you do "bang" with your fingers, he rolls overs and plays dead. His Forever Family should continue with his obedience training. It is a great bonding opportunity! Jake is very treat driven. Most everything he has learned (including yard boundaries) has been with hot dogs and positive training.

Want to be his best friend? Throw a ball!Jake enjoys fetching/chasing balls. †He is learning to drop them--part of his growing and learning phase! Jake also enjoys his walks around the neighborhood. His leash manners are improving with every walk.†

Although Jake will tolerate other dogs for a short period of time, he will need to be the only dog in the house. His lack of structure and socializing before coming into rescue has made it a challenge to live with other dogs. For everyoneís happiness, Jake should be the only resident dog in his Forever Home.†

Jake is housetrained. He does fine in the household when he is by himself. Because he is young and energetic, Jake will need a long walk, jog, or run if you plan to leave him for long periods of time alone in the house. A tired dog is a good dog! †After a good exercise adventure, Jake enjoys lying out on the deck watching people walk by and the happenings of the neighborhood.

Are you looking for a dog to snuggle with you on the couch, in the bed, or under the blankets? Do you enjoy a sweet Springer lying in a little ball waiting for your attention? Are you a homebody that wants to bond with a sweet boy? Then Jake is your Velcro Springer!

Please note that an approved adoption application is the first step in a more thorough interview process that is designed to match each dog to exactly the right family, and that the final decision rests with the dog's case manager.

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

AJ is a handsome boy who thrives on being petted and loved. He loves to snuggle on the couch, and he gives Springer kisses in the most affectionate way!

There is a lot to love about AJ. In addition to being cuddly, he is energetic. He loves playing fetch and going for walks. Although he takes one medication for allergies and one for mild neuropathy in his back legs, neither issue slows AJ down. He is healthy and excited to meet his Forever Family.

This smart, well-trained guy lets you know when he needs to go outside, and he will go to his kennel and lie down on command. AJ keeps his foster family smiling, especially when he does silly things like drinking water from the bathtub!

AJ lives with other dogs and cats. He has shown some interest in the cats, but he does not chase them. Because he enjoys being the center of attention, AJ might do best as the only dog in his Forever Home.

This easy keeper is ready to be showered with love and attention, and he will make some lucky family a wonderful companion. If you think that family might be yours, please contact his case managers at the e-mail address below to learn more about AJ.

Jake's vet bills have accumulated to the point that we are asking for donations to assist him. If you would like to make a contribution to ESRA specifically for Jake (2013-860MN), make sure to indicate his name and intake number when you do so. Please click here to reach our Donations page to help Jake. He will be so happy!
Meet our man Jake! He has been in and out of various homes for a few years now. Jake has been constantly misunderstood, so we are seeking a patient, dog-wise, and loving family to support him and help him live a happy life.

Jake has been well trained, and he responds to commands. However, he seemed to be stubborn about coming out of his crate when he was asked to do so after being crated all day. He was grouchy and did not like people reaching for his collar to force him out. This cost him more than one home and resulted in some unfavorable training methods being used. Once Jake arrived at our home, we noticed that he did not move smoothly when he was running, so we had his hips examined and discovered that he has severe hip dysplasia. The poor boy was sore from not being able to move about all day while he was confined in the crate.

In our home, Jake has found it quite nice to be left alone in the house all day uncrated. He is very trustworthy and has never had an accident. His temperament has improved, and we now have an understanding of what hurts him.

Jake has been thoroughly evaluated by the orthopedic department at Colorado State University veterinary hospital. They have recommended not to replace his hips at this time but rather to help manage his condition with supplements and physical therapy. He likes the physical therapy because it involves treats! He is very food motivated, as is typical of Springer Spaniels.

You can see from his photos that Jake enjoys being outside. Because he has always had bad hips, he doesn't know anything different but just keeps doing what other Springers do. He sniffs up birds, bunnies, and mice in the field. He plays with our other foster dogs, and he will fetch toys for us. He enjoys life!

Jake likes to snuggle with you while you watch TV. He loves treats of all kinds. He adores going for car rides. Above all, he just wants to be your best buddy. He walks well on a leash, is invisible-fence trained, and uses a doggy door as well.

Jake's Forever Family will need to keep up his physical therapy and keep him slim. They must also understand that Jake will need more medical care in the future. A family that could take him swimming would be ideal, as this exercise really helps stretch and build up his muscles. That is key to keeping him comfortable.

We do not know how Jake would be with small dogs or cats. We would not recommend that he live with small children because they might not understand that they could hurt him by touching or pulling on him.

This boy has a fun and goofy personality. He knows how to work you for treats, toys, and attention. He has done well with all of our foster dogs since he has been here. He did think that being the only dog on the overnight trip to the vets at CSU was great, though, because he got all of our attention!

Jake truly deserves the best. Please contact us at the e-mail address below for more information.

Gunner is such a sweet boy! He is a lover, a hugger, and an all-around fantastic companion. His family was heartbroken when they could not take him with them into their new retirement home, and they are now counting on ESRA to help find him a home that will treat him like the special dog he is.

Gunner is housetrained and invisible-fence trained. He walks with the typical Springer Spaniel pull on the leash, and he whines with excitement when he rides in the car through town. However, he does settle in once you are on the open road. He has been a gentleman with the other dogs in his foster home.

This handsome guy likes people of all ages. Gunny patiently accepts hugs from small children, and he will definitely find your lap while you watch TV! He is good at the groomer, too.

Exercising Gunner is easy. He likes to go for walks and is good in the open field, coming when he is called. He knows basic commands and listens well. He fits the description of a merry Springer to a tee. To learn more about this adorable boy, please contact his foster family at the e-mail address below.

Age:6 years

Rex came to us from Utah, where he had been kenneled for several months. He has been doing great in his new foster home here. When Rex first arrived, he weighed about seventy pounds, but now that he has room to run and a healthy diet, he is down to sixty-two pounds. Although he looks like a Springer, we think Rex also has some setter in him. He is still a big boy, so he will need a stronger person to manage him.

Rex loves to go for walks. His foster mom is currently using a harness when she takes him out, but she reports that he will heel without the harness. Rex also likes to go for car rides. He is very sad if his people get mad and yell at him or tell him he is a bad boy. He will pout for hours! When that happens, his foster mom will go talk to him and explain what went wrong, and then they are pals again.

At his foster home, Rex loves the big yard which gives him room to run. He is great at keeping the squirrel population under control! He comes when he is called by various family members. In the evening, Rex really likes to play with toys. However, stuffed toys may not be the best idea because he thinks it is fun to shred them and pull out the stuffing. Rex knows all his basic commands and signs such as Sit, Down, Stay, Come, Leave It, and No Jump. Of course, Rex responds to treats especially well and performs at his best when they are offered!

His foster mom says that this handsome guy would be happiest in a family with older children. Rex sometimes gets a bit jealous when the little ones get all the attention. He has never shown any signs of hurting them, but he does want all his people's focus to be on him.

Rex loves being outside, going for walks, and having a comfortable place to sleep, sometimes with his foster mom, but mostly on his blanket. This loveable boy enjoys having his back rubbed, and he gives wonderful Springer kisses. If you're looking for a loyal companion who wants to be your BFF, this is your guy. Contact his case manager at the e-mail address below to learn more about Rex!

Thinking about bringing Harley or another wonderful Senior Springer into your family? Read why rescuing Senior Springers is a top priority for ESRA.
From Harley's foster mom: Meet Lady Harley, an old-fashioned girl with a lovely old English name that fits a Springer just right--it means "the hares' meadow." Bounding through a meadow after the bunnies is a royal day out for any Springer! Harley does love to sniff up rabbits in the field, but her days of going full speed after them are past. A ride through the field in the golf cart suits her just fine now.

Lady Harley is the queen in our foster home. She reigns over the other dogs and sets the pace of the day for her humans. She awakens just minutes before the alarm clock goes off and barks her orders for us to get up and feed her. Once her needs have been met, she is content to sleep the day away on her fluffy bed until we return from work. She greets our arrival with a series of uninterrupted barks that she is compelled to finish. If we try to stop her, she will be silent for a moment until she can no longer stand it and will then finish her repertoire. She is so funny!

This loving girl would do best in a home where she can be the center of attention. Harley adores being next to you on the couch or sitting on your lap while you watch TV. She does not require lots of exercise, but she does enjoy going outside for strolls. The lady likes a good chew toy, tasty treats, tummy rubs, and ear scratches, as well as an occasional car ride. She grew up in a household with children. Her former family stated that she is not good with cats.

Harley qualifies for a Senior-for-Senior adoption. She has some typical senior issues such as bumps, lumps, and sore joints from time to time. Every once in a while, she will leak a little if she has not been reminded to go outside. She does well with simple medications that help her manage these things.

Please consider taking this queen into your castle so that she may live happily ever after and you may enjoy her affection. For more information about the elegant Lady Harley, please contact us at the e-mail address below.

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

Age:3 years
Gender:Male
Color:Black & White
Weight:75 lbs
Variety:Bench
Hi, friends! My name is Max, and I came to ESRA after my dad passed away and I became too much for my mom to care for on her own. She loves me very much, but she realized that I needed more exercise and attention than she could provide. Because I have spent the last few years without a lot of physical activity, Iím carrying some extra weight around with me. When I came to ESRA, I weighed nearly eighty-five pounds, but my foster mom has made sure that I have daily walks and playtime outside. She has also been watching my diet, so now Iím down to seventy-five pounds. My weight loss is still a work in progress, but I feel better with each pound I lose!

I am up to date on all of my vetting. I'm neutered, heartworm negative, and current on all of my vaccinations through July. Iíve also been microchipped. I am housetrained, and I ask to go outside to potty. Iím crate trained, and I ride well in the car. My foster home has a resident Springer and a cat. I lived with a cat before, so Iím okay with the cat here. My Springer foster brother is pretty high energy, and he tries and tries to get me to play, but I havenít taken him up on his invitation to play yet because Iím a little unsure about that wrestling and chasing stuff.

My foster mom says that I am generally polite and sweet, but that sometimes Iím a little overzealous in seeking attention. And of course, I like to be in the room where my people are, just as all Springers do. While I love people, it would be best for me to be in a home without really young children. I would be fine with kids age twelve or older, though.

I am good on a leash once I settle into the walk, but I could use some basic obedience and manners lessons. My foster mom has been working with me, but I will need my Forever Family to continue my training. Right now I will Sit, but I need some work on Stay, Down, and Off, as well as on my recall. I am not a runner, but I should be on a leash or in a contained area as I tend to wander if I get a scent of something. My foster mom makes me sit and wait to eat because otherwise I will bark and smack her with my paw. What can I say? I love food! †

I am not afraid of storms or thunder, although I do get a little anxious when someone leaves the house. But after a little whimpering, I settle down in my crate. I donít get so worked up or anxious that I would tear things up, cry, or carry on.

So now that youíve read all about me, do you think that weíre a good match? If so, please get in touch with my foster mom at the e-mail address below.

Hugs and kisses,
Max


From Maxís foster mom: Max has some anxiety at the groomer's salon, as well as at the vet's office if he is getting a shot or having blood taken. Therefore, his Forever Family should make sure that the groomer and the doctor are prepared. Max does not like his feet touched.

Sweet Max also needs some work on impulse control/resource hoarding. We like to say that he helps with laundry and helps keep the house picked up, but he will take any opportunity to eat items such as socks, undergarments, and other small objects. He will also attempt to guard these precious resources if he does not want to give them up. He does respond well to rewards, and he will drop the forbidden item if a treat is offered. †

We are working on those issues as well as on his manners while he is with us. He does stay in the crate while we are at work. At night, he sleeps in a contained but open area in the bedroom so that he does not have to be in the crate, and he doesn't mind this arrangement. Max would prefer sleeping on the human bed if he were allowed to do so.

Max would do best in a home where he gets lots of attention, enough exercise (whether it is a casual walk or some ball time), and the right diet to keep his weight under control. This affectionate boy needs love, consistency, and guidance to help him be the best dog that he can be. So if you have room in your heart and your home for Max, please contact us.

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

Thinking about bringing Lady or another wonderful Senior Springer into your family? Read why rescuing Senior Springers is a top priority for ESRA.
Please meet our beautiful Lady. This special girl came to ESRA late last summer when her human dad was ill and could no longer take care of her. †

Lady was in need of some basic vetting and lots of TLC when she came into our care. Not only was she confused about this big change in her life, but she was also overweight and her coat was dry and patchy. Ladyís vaccinations and heartworm test were brought up to date, and she was microchipped. Her wonderful foster dad has spent the past several months working to get Lady healthy and feeling better. After some testing, we learned that she had a mild thyroid issueóhence the weight and coat problems she came to ESRA with. But with medications, a good diet, and some grooming, Lady has made a wonderful transformation. †

Our girl loves her foster dad, and she gets along with the two resident dogs in the home. Lady likes to sleep on Dadís lap, but she will also share the sofa for a nap with her foster siblings. She is housetrained, and she rides well in the car. Ladyís foster dad reports that she has learned to enjoy meeting new people when they are out and about.

Lady is looking for a Forever Family to love and pamper her. She has lots of life left to live and much love to give. So if you think the lovely Lady is the one for you, please contact her case manager at the e-mail address below. You'll be glad you did!

Manny is a sweet boy. Although he was found as a neglected stray, Manny transformed into our adorable senior prince! He is a super-loving Springer who shows his foster family his affection daily. †Manny loves his pets and scratches. He loves attention from anyone!

Looking for an addition to your pack? Manny enjoys the resident dog and spends hours snuggling with him. He gets along great with other dogs and has no trouble making friends with everyone. Manny sleeps on his dog bed next to his foster momís bed. He doesnít care to get on furniture but would rather sit next to you. Manny is crate trained.

Manny feels like a million bucks! †This handsome senior was recently neutered, had several bumps removed and his teeth polished. Manny is mostly deaf but can hear loud and high-pitched noises, including loud whistles, hand clapping or clatter.†

Manny is looking for a Forever Home to give him the love and attention he deserves (and likely missed out on for most of his life). He has great energy and enjoys the occasional run around outside, romp at the dog park or walk around the neighborhood. †Manny likes to explore and smell everything. Due to his partial hearing loss and exploration talents, his Forever Home should have a fenced yard or should be located in a remote area.

Could you be the Forever Family Manny is patiently waiting for? Are you looking for a loyal and loving companion?†

Meet sweet Archie! This happy old man is a joy to his foster mom and dad, as well as to his canine foster sister. When Archie was taken to a shelter, he needed medical attention to his eye and toe. His toe had to be amputated, but that doesn't slow this guy down! He LOVES to play catch, and the extra exercise is helping build up his muscles again.

Archie didn't have a great start, but his future is looking much brighter now that he has ESRAíS help. Archie does have dry eye syndrome, so he has drops and salve that need to be put into his eyes twice a day, but this guy takes to the routine like a real trouper. He gets a nice treat for sitting so still for his foster mom.

Since moving in with his foster family, Archie has had a haircut. He now gets lots of treats and loads of cuddles. He aims to please, and he just wants a nice comfy home where he can live out his days.

Archie would fit into any environment. He is perfectly content to be the only dog or to live with others. He has gone to doggy daycare, where gets along fine with the other dogs. He actually just follows his own tune and ignores a lot of the craziness at the daycare center. It is unknown how he would be with cats, but with his quiet demeanor, his foster mom doesn't see an issue. Archie also doesn't jump up on furniture, but if you did want him on the couch with you, we're sure he could be persuaded!

If you're looking for a mellow dog who just wants to lie at your feet or follow you from room to room because he loves you, then Archie is the one for you. This sweet guy will bring affection and happiness to his Forever Family. If you think that family might be yours, contact his foster mom at the e-mail address below. You'll be glad you did!

We would like to thank Angela Boone of Angela Boone Photography in Roseville, Minnesota for generously donating the photos of Jordy displayed here. Visit her website.
Sweet Jordy was picked up by animal control as he was wandering in the country. Our best guess is that he is around ten or eleven years old. Jordy is a dear senior guy who is adjusting to the indoor life at his foster home and is enjoying it!

Jordy gets along well with the foster family's resident small dogs, and he is learning to live with cats. He will back off quickly if they hiss and stand up to him. Jordy walks perfectly on leash and loves taking strolls, meeting the neighbors along the way. His favorite pastime is sniffing around the fenced yard, but in true Springer fashion, he loves following his person around, too.

Because he can no longer hear and his peripheral vision is impaired, a home without children would be best for Jordy. He does well with hand signals and will Sit, Lie Down, and Stay. As he is deaf, he will need a securely fenced yard to keep him safe. Jordy is truly the sweetest of sweethearts, and he is so easy to have around. Do you have a soft place in your heart and your home for Jordy to spend his retirement years?
