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.

LOOKING FOR A SPRINGER TO CALL YOUR OWN?

Here’s a video designed to show you “in a nutshell” what you can expect from an ESRA Springer. We think a picture is worth a thousand words.

Most of the precious Springers featured in the video have already found their Forever Homes. We hope the one you are looking for is posted here, available in the Southeast today.

When Tam first came into his foster home, he was scared and hid under the kitchen table. After about two days, Tam felt confident enough to come out and join the rest of the pack. Things have been looking up for him ever since!

Tam is a sweet senior who quickly adapted to the comforts of a home with a clean place to sleep, plenty of food and water and lots of love.

He is currently sharing his space with a young terrier puppy sister and is doing just fine. He is very healthy for a dog his age and is good with other dogs, cats and children.

He is an extremely sweet boy that deserves a good retirement home and a family to call his own. His foster mom says that Tam is "no trouble at all."
Like many of us who are aging, he does have some mild joint pain but it doesn't slow him down.

Tam would love to have a Forever Family who will give him the love he missed in much of his life. He promises to be a sweet and gentle companion in exchange for a soft place to sleep, a scratch on the head and lots of treats!

Tam is healthy, fully vetted and ready to go home.

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!

THINKING ABOUT BRINGING A SENIOR SPRINGER INTO YOUR FAMILY? Read why rescuing Senior Springers is a top priority for ESRA.
Duke is so happy to be an ESRA dog! So many people are telling him how handsome and sweet he is that he has to turn his head to make sure they are talking about him. Having spent his life until now outside 24/7, he’s still amazed that he has a nice warm bed to sleep in and all the attention a boy needs.

Duke’s date of birth was July 22, 2008. He’s 9 years old and still acts like a pup. He came with AKC papers, which will be made available to the adopter. It appears the papers were never submitted to the AKC but it’s never too late for that!

Duke lived on a large property with cats, goats and chickens but apparently there were lots of mosquitoes too. As a result, Duke contracted heartworm disease and has already started his treatment. He’ll be good as new shortly and he is otherwise healthy, up to date on his vaccines, neutered and microchipped.

Duke wants to go to a home where he is King. He appreciates being a Duke but now that he has all the human love he could ever want, he would prefer not to share it with another dog. Would you like to be one of Duke’s royal subjects? No throne or crown required but a warm and friendly castle is a must!

On a scale of cuteness Sophie would be an 11. This adorable 8-month-old puppy is a Springer/poodle mix. Her foster Mom describes her as playful, energetic, loving and smart, a typical Springer puppy!

Sophie has mastered potty training via the doggie door. She should quickly adjust to any household, doggie door or not. She knows the command “Sit” and her foster home is working on “Stay.” Since she is still very much a puppy, we will require her new adopter to attend puppy classes with Sophie. Counter surfing is Sophie’s favorite activity and she will steal any loose items that are left unattended. Training will help with that as well.

Sophie loves people and is outgoing and friendly. She has not been around small children yet but we think she will be great. She loves other dogs and adores playing the three resident dogs in her foster home. She has not been cat tested.

In one photo, Sophie is shown with a cast on her leg. She came into rescue with an existing leg injury which is now completely healed. Sophie will need an adopter who will provide her with plenty of exercise. She loves the water and will get wet any opportunity she can.

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

Read about bonded pairs and the benefits of adopting these special best friends.
Introducing our father and daughter bonded pair, Hampton and Deemer. They have always been together and need to be adopted as a bonded pair. Hampton is a gorgeous tri-colored boy. Though he is a young 11, he’s a lot calmer than his daughter Deemer. He still watches over Deemer and shares his toys with her.

Hampton will not share them happily with other dogs. He can be picky with other dogs but for the most part gets along well with the resident dogs in his foster home.

Though his hearing is decreasing with age, like most Springers, a loud clap or a bark from another dog will get his attention. Hampton is on Dasuquin (joint supplement) to help with his mobility but can still jump on the couch. He is otherwise a very healthy and handsome gentleman. Turning heads is a family trait and this handsome boy will certainly do just that.

Deemer is in perpetual motion and always ready to be a typical Springer goofball. She is a little pushy and wants to be the first out of the door and could use a training class to remind her of her manners. She does come when called by her name, which is the most important command of all.

After close observation in her foster home, it has been revealed that Deemer lives to hunt lizards. Inside she sheds her huntress ways and is sweet, gets along with other dogs and children. She enjoys rallying the troops (other dogs in the home) and enticing them to play. This young lady is a true beauty and will turn heads wherever you go.

Please consider adopting Deemer and her wonderful dad, Hampton, and double your fun!

SPECIAL NOTE: The Springers For Seniors designation that is included for Hampton and Deemer applies to Hampton alone. Please contact this bonded pair’s coordinator for specifics about this special program for seniors.

Hi I am Finley, a four-year-old bench Springer that was turned into rescue for a newer model human. I get along with most dogs, especially females. I like the human females but my favorite playmate is a male human. They are just much more fun than females but still like the girls. I prefer older humans age 9 and up.

I am a great guy, but I do like to hunt so I should not be allowed to play with small dogs or cats that run. This does not make me a bad dog, just one that likes to chase. I am looking for a home with active humans who like to have fun. We all know that Springers like to have fun!

I am still trying to overcome a yeast problem. My foster mom is so educated in nutrition that I have improved immensely and continue to improve. No antibiotics but I do get special baths and an all raw diet to help me recoup from a year of problems. I am doing so much better and come with instructions on how to care for me. I just need a little TLC to become the best I can be! I am so ready to have my own family even though my foster mom and granddaughter are great!

I hope you will consider me as your next partner.

Love, Finley

Introducing Marlie, a sweet bundle of Springer energy! This pretty little girl loves to play almost as much as she loves to cuddle. She’s always ready for a game of chase and is a destroyer of stuffed toys. She loves to be the center of attention and quickly charms everyone she meets.

Marlie is looking for an active family with a fenced yard. We think she would do great with some older kids who would play with her in the yard. An all-adult home would be fine, too. She just needs someone (or several people) ready and willing to spend time with her and help her settle into her Forever Home. She seems to like other dogs out and about but has not lived with another dog. We think she would be very happy as an only dog, soaking up all the attention she deserves.

We think Marlie must have spent some time on her own or banished outside. She came into rescue very underweight and had to be taught how to use the stairs. She is enthusiastic and eager to please and is a great candidate for positive reinforcement-based training. Her foster family has given her a refresher course in housetraining and she is learning some commands, but will need additional practice on leash walking and greeting friends with all four paws on the floor.

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

THINKING ABOUT BRINGING A SENIOR SPRINGER INTO YOUR FAMILY? Read why rescuing Senior Springers is a top priority for ESRA.
Hello everyone,

If you're looking for a quiet, dignified Southern gentleman, look no further. If I do say so myself, I think I fill the bill perfectly and my foster family agrees wholeheartedly. As you can see from my pictures, I'm a very handsome liver and white boy. What you may not be able to see is that I'm extra tall for a Springer and a little on the skinny side but that's good because I have a bad hip and any extra weight would not be good. Believe it or not, I'm eleven years old. Don't let my age put you off. In fact, you may prefer a low-key companion. I walk. I don't run. I sleep a lot. But when I'm awake, I'm very loving and very motivated by food and treats.

Maybe in my earlier life I was taught to stay off the furniture or maybe it's just hard for an older guy to get up on thing or maybe it's even my sore hip, but there won't be any issues regards to furniture. I prefer my cushy bed in the midst of the family group. Speaking of the family group, I get along fine with my six (count them -- six) foster siblings (two other boys and four girls). They're a lot more physically active than I am, but it's OK. When everyone's outside, I don't romp in the woods with the other dogs but stay close to the house and my humans. All in all, we cohabitate nicely.

I am deaf, so my foster family doesn't know whether I know any commands or not. Maybe the fact that I'm deaf explains why I'm not very vocal. They've also decided not to encourage me to sit because of my hip. I'm a little uncertain on the hardwood floors, so carpet would be nice. I've mastered the doggie door and their long stairway from the deck down into the yard, but a house with fewer stairs would be welcome. Again, my torn rotator cuff means that I'm not inclined to jump fences and my foster parents have seen no indication that I'm a digger.

If you're looking for a sedate companion and not a jogger, dock diver, or Frisbee champ, please consider me.

Love, Brady


A word from Brady's foster family: Brady is so food motivated that he will chomp down hard on a treat or a pill pocket, and even tried his best to keep the spoon that contained his peanut butter-covered pill. For this reason, he does need an all-adult home. He could accidentally hurt little fingers if visiting children tried to feed him or offered to share their snack.

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

Meet Bama, a cute little Springer/Cocker mix. Despite his name, Bama is originally from Mississippi, and he'd certainly be willing to cheer on the Alabama Crimson Tide or the team of his Forever Family's choosing.

Bama's family turned him over to ESRA when they relocated from a country setting with acreage to a more urban environment. This active young guy no longer could safely run free and was unhappy with city life. As a result, he will need a Forever Home with a good-sized fenced yard and some humans willing to play outside with him.

Bama is extremely people-oriented. He knows his name and comes nicely on command and seeks out human companionship. After running off some excess energy, he will happily come indoors when called. He is crate trained and housetrained. Like most Springers, he wants to be in the center of family life. He does need to be the only dog in the family and would do best with adults and older, dog-savvy children.

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

Simone is a sweet, shy young lady with a gentle spirit. Because of a rough start in life, she needs some extra help overcoming her fears. She is making great progress and is affectionate, loving and most appreciative of human kindness.

Simone is crate trained and finds comfort in her crate, retreating there when she is startled by loud noises and sudden, fast movements. She prefers to spend most of her time indoors.

She would be an excellent candidate for positive reinforcement based training because she is very motivated by treats and human affection. Her foster family is working with her on coming out of the crate when called, walking comfortably on leash (she doesn't pull quite the opposite she freezes and won't walk when frightened), and the finer points of housetraining (almost there).

Simone seems more comfortable with women than with men and would likely bond first with her Forever Mom, and then gradually warm up to other family members. We think she would prefer a quiet, adult home or a home with adults and older children; the noisy play of little ones would frighten her. She gets along well with the other dogs in her foster home. She is a beautiful and sweet dog, eager for human bonding. She just needs lots of love, training, and patience.

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

ESRA foster dog Clark wants nothing more than a Forever Home where he can be the main attraction. Clark is a sweet, happy, funny young man who enjoys playing with toys and people, a good romp in the yard and a cozy sofa in the house. In foster care, he entertains himself by pulling his blanket out into the yard through the doggie door and then bringing it back inside with him.

Clark is healthy and handsome, with a shiny and glossy coat. He is housetrained, crate trained, knows basic commands and is a quick learner and generally well-behaved. He responds especially well to a gentle touch and kind words and will seek out his foster mother for some petting.

He needs to be the one and only beloved dog because he'd rather not share all that human attention and he needs a home without children. He would prefer a fenced yard and needs plenty of exercise. He is an energetic young guy but calms down nicely inside. His one issue is that he is very fearful and apprehensive with the vet and groomer, so much that he will fight to get away when restrained.

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

Meet Arribelle, a sweet and beautiful young lady looking for a new human best friend. “Arrie” adores people and wants to be petted and loved on constantly. She will make a loyal and loving companion for the right adopter. She is a good girl who knows some basic commands. And she is as strikingly beautiful as she is sweet, with a primarily black coat with some white and tan mixed in.

Because she so badly wants all the human attention, Arrie will sometimes growl a little to warn other dogs to get out of the way. But she is also young and playful and has worked things out with the other dogs in her foster home. In fact, her video clip shows her trying to get her Brittany foster sister to play. She has not been tested with cats, but her foster dad thinks she would probably tolerate them fine.

Arribelle came into rescue with bladder stones, but they have resolved and she is feeling wonderful. She will need to eat prescription food to prevent future issues.

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

Sweet Lucy is a little lovebug who wants to be with her people every second of the day. She is a textbook example of a Velcro Springer. Lucy loves ALL humans and is very affectionate with anyone who gives her attention. Her foster dad describes her as smart and spunky. She has learned how to open an unsecured gate but has no interest in running away -- instead, she races to find her people.

Lucy is quiet in the house, only barking when she hears other dogs start barking. However, if you sing to her, she will join right in with a round of Springer "woo woos" and howling. She enjoys her walks and is learning not to pull. She would do well with some training that uses positive reinforcement because she is so eager to please.

Lucy does need to be an only dog or introduced carefully to a potential doggie sibling. This little lady is not sure why she should have to share the human attention with other dogs. Also, children in the home need to be 12 or older. She will make a wonderful, loyal, loving companion for a lucky adopter!

Tinker had a rough start as one of a group of dogs rescued from a hoarding situation in Florence, AL, more than a year ago. She has blossomed in foster care after receiving some needed veterinary treatment and a whole lot of human kindness. Now this sweet older lady is ready to find her Forever Home.

These days, Tinker is living the good life. She is happy, friendly and energetic and plays nicely with another small dog in her foster home. Despite her age and smaller stature, she will jump over a baby gate to follow her foster mom. As long as she is with her favorite human, she is calm and content and will stay close and nap. Tinker is friendly with other dogs and not interested in the cats she has met at the local vet clinic.

Her number one need in a Forever Home is human companionship. She’s not a dog who needs tons of exercise or a large space to run; a smaller enclosed courtyard or patio area would be just fine with Tinker. She just needs regular potty breaks and, of course, love and attention.

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

Hi there everybody!

I’m Princeton and I’m a “Go! Go! Go!” kind of guy looking for some active humans who can keep up with me. I’m just an overgrown puppy who likes to have fun. I love to run and explore. Because I’m a high energy boy, the Springer Rescue people have promised to find me a Forever Home with a fenced yard. I am friendly and bouncy and willing to jog, hike or try out some new sports.

I’d also really like to go to school so I can learn new stuff – like good manners – and make my humans proud. I am already housetrained. Maybe I could also make friends with some of the other doggies in my class. Here in foster care, I have some playmates and generally prefer pretty girl dogs.

I’ve always been handsome in my own way but the Springer Rescue folks just gave me a makeover. They didn’t touch my best feature, my long, fluffy white tail, but they trimmed my formerly shaggy hair to make me look more Springer-like. I’m not actually 100 percent Springer. Please don’t hold that against me. If you adopt me, I will wag my gorgeous flag of a tail and love you with all my heart!

Love,
Princeton

Introducing sweet Maggie, a healthy, fun loving young dog with energy to spare! She’ll keep you laughing continuously with her antics, her sense of humor, and her curiosity. Miss Maggie needs an active family willing to walk, run and play. After a good romp, she will be ready to snuggle on the couch and then sleep the night away. In fact, she eagerly runs to her crate every night at bedtime for her midnight snack and then settles right down for the night.

Maggie has never met a stranger and greets everyone with a wagging tail and lots of enthusiasm. She gets along great with the older dogs in her foster home, trying hard to get them to play with her but respecting their space when they get grumpy. She would enjoy another playful dog or two in her Forever Home, as well as some older kids. (She likes small children just fine but might accidentally knock them down with her greeting style.)

Because she walks well on her leash, Maggie would make an excellent running partner. She sits on command but does not yet come reliably on command, so a fenced yard is required. We think she would enjoy swimming when the weather gets warmer; she happily hops right into the shower.

Since she is still just a puppy, she needs a Forever Family that will give her the exercise and training that she requires. We expect that she would excel at a positive reinforcement-based obedience class and then might enjoy learning about doggie sports like dock diving, flyball, lure coursing, retrieving, etc. Are you that Forever Family? She will come with her crate, blankets, collar, halter, toys and lots of love to share.

Diamond is a sweet, calm boy who came to ESRA in extremely poor shape. At the time of rescue, he was malnourished and so weak that he could not walk, as well as heartworm positive -- truly a diamond in the rough. A good Samaritan rescued Diamond and another dog from poor living conditions. It is believed that Diamond had NEVER seen a veterinarian prior to rescue.

He has now been neutered, completed his heartworm treatment and put on some much-needed pounds. He’s been an excellent patient, quiet and content to snuggle and rest with his new best friend in foster care, Sadie.

Diamond knows his name and responds enthusiastically to “Let’s Eat!” He is housetrained and content in his crate or in Sadie’s crate. They spend most of their time together. His one quirk is that he doesn’t like to use the doggie door but would rather wait for a human to let him out.

Diamond would be happiest in a calm household with the companionship of another dog. Though we are not offering them as a bonded pair, it would be wonderful if Diamond and his best friend Sadie could stay together.

Won’t you consider giving this gem of a boy a better life? He will be eternally grateful.

Now recovered from some serious eye injuries, Sadie is thriving and happy at her foster home. Sadie has also completed heartworm treatment and is feeling much better. She likely had several litters of puppies in her previous life. Now that she is spayed, she has officially retired from breeding. Unfortunately nothing could be done to restore her vision. However, she is comfortable, upbeat and adjustable and learned her way around quickly in foster care, even using a pet door to go out in the yard.

Sadie is quite friendly with people. While she does need some work on leash walking, she will walk right beside her human if you continually coax her by talking to her. She gets very excited at feeding time and will bark in anticipation. She is crate trained and housetrained and goes out through the pet door into the yard. She gets along fine with most other dogs, as long as they are understanding if she accidentally bumps into them. In fact, she has made one doggie best friend in foster care, Diamond. Both Diamond and Sadie are available for adoption and it would be wonderful if they could be adopted together!

Sadie would do best in a single-story home with easy access to a small court or back yard and with another submissive dog as a companion. As long as the furniture placement remains constant, blind dogs quickly learn the lay of the land. She would thrive in a quiet home with an owner who is home much of the time and willing to provide a house sitter so Sadie can stay in her own environment if her Forever Family needs to travel.

Won't you consider giving this loving girl a home to call her own? She is a sweet, deserving dog who would make a wonderful, loyal companion for the right family.

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

English Springer Rescue America's mission is threefold: rescue, rehabilitate and rehome. Cyrus is a perfect example of these efforts.

First, he was rescued from poor living conditions with a group of other dogs. (Phelps, Shelby and Simone are his relatives). The first stop was the veterinarian's, where he was examined, neutered and underwent heartworm treatment.

Second came the rehabilitation. Since Cyrus has basically only known kennel life and was poorly socialized, it is taking some time for him to get comfortable with the things most pet dogs take for granted, like the normal sights and sounds of people cooking, cleaning, talking and laughing. He has learned how to use the doggie door and to go into his kennel for meals and treats.

Now it is time for the rehoming portion of Cyrus' journey. This young man needs a patient Forever Family willing to help him relax and settle in. Because he is still timid, he would do best in an adult home with a fenced yard to explore. He is getting along well with his foster siblings so would probably enjoy the company of another friendly dog.

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

Hi. I'm Tanner.

They say I'm such an handsome boy. I'm just the right size for almost any place you live. I will fit right in no matter where we are (you and me). Will you let me carry my toys around everywhere and entertain you with silly antics?

I am housetrained and I know how to use a doggy door. I have a little social anxiety with new people, but I really want to be with MY people. Strangers that want to pet me cause me to freeze or hide, but later I am fine if I get to know them. Once I bond, I just want to spend all of my time with you. I prefer women a bit more, but I'm fine with men after some time.

I'm fine in a crate if you want me there, and I don't mind cats or other dogs. I really don't. I'd like a quieter home, without lots of activity, and one or two people to live with forever. Hustle and bustle, dog parks, and crowded places with too many new people make me a little stressed.

Things on my Top 10 list include going for rides in the car, going for rides that get me some ice cream, carrying my toys everywhere, playing fetch, and going for walks (but not where strange people are reaching for me. That makes me freeze).

I'm aged to perfection, and I prefer the company of adults to children. I am happy and very healthy. If you are looking for a sweet companion, perfectly mannered, and amusing, that's me! I know you're out there looking for me. Here I am. Please, take a chance on me!

Love,
Tanner
