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.

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

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

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

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:4 years

Hello, my name is Madison, and my story truly began when I was dropped off at a rural Alabama shelter around June. Fast forward to June 11, I was still at the shelter sitting in a kennel under an awning out in the hot sun. Suddenly four people walked up to my kennel and I was so excited that I couldn't stop wagging my little nub of a tail. They took me inside to a room where they had a pet bed on the floor. Then someone placed a tiny week-old puppy on the pet bed and I was ecstatic. I started washing her and she apparently approved of me too because she began to nurse. Then they put five more puppies in front of me and I began washing them too.

Next thing I know I'm being whisked away to a foster home where I received a lot of attention. I had cameras all around me within a few days of arriving in foster care and all I did was what came natural -- taking care of the puppies I was given.

I did have a little surprise of my own though. On June 15, I gave birth! Yep, I was pregnant. Over the course of the next few days I gave birth six puppies -- the first born was the only male and the only to survive. Then the cameras came out again!

Wow, I was a star! The days progressed into weeks and I was very comfortable in my foster home, except it was a little scary when my foster parents had to leave me home alone. Otherwise, I was a good girl and would simply lay on the floor by my foster parents. (See the links at the top of her listing for local articles about Madison's journey)

Fast forward to 7/18/17: I was on the move again with my only surviving bundle of joy. I was put in a couple of different vehicles and after many hours on the road, I arrived at my new foster home.


From Madison's foster family: And what an arrival it was! Madison was still nursing her 4-week-old baby boy and was such a good mommy. She was very protective of her bundle with the 9-year-old female Labrador at her new foster home, but days after, they started getting on just great, and when the puppy slept, Madison and her new Lab friend would wrestle and play together.

Next Madison went into the vet for spaying and a full mastectomy on her right side. The stitches were to come out the second week of September, but Madison, along with the rest of Florida, was preparing for a hurricane and the vet's office was closed. Madison, her puppy, and her foster family piled in her foster's car and off they went to be safe. Now that things are getting back to normal, it's time for Madison to have her forever home!

Madison has an iron bladder and is fully housetrained. She needs an active Forever Family with a fenced yard, willing to continue her twice-daily walks. She is friendly and excited to meet everyone along the way. She sits on command and walks well on a lead, unless distracted by a really interesting scent. She would love another playful dog and would do well with gentle children. She's quite comfortable popping up on the sofa to cuddle or following you as you do your chores.

It's been a long amazing story and journey for Madison over the last three and a half months --from being abandoned, to a surrogate mommy, to having her own pups, to riding out a hurricane in a laundry room with her foster mom. The family that is lucky enough to adopt Madison and share her story will be forever changed by her love and her incredible journey. It is time for Madison to get that special attention that only a Forever Home and Family can give. Are you that Forever Family?

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!

Hi. I'm Tanner. My foster mom says I am really a good boy but I'm shy. I am so shy. I'm the right size for almost any place you live...an apartment, a condo, a house. I will fit right in no matter where we are (you and me).

I am housetrained and I know how to use a doggy door, so I'm smart. But I'm shy. I'm fine once I get to know you and your people, but it will take me a while to warm up. 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 think I'd like a quieter home and one or two people to live with forever. But I really need you to take time, because I'm shy (did I mention that?) But once I know I can trust you, you'll find the perfect dog hiding under my beautiful coat.

My foster family is working with me and, you know, I'm fine with them now. I go out in the car and I go for ice cream (I LOVE ice cream). Smaller children are a little too busy for me. I'm aged to perfection, but again, prefer the company of adults to children. I am happy, very healthy and can play with toys and always ready to go in the car. I know you're out there looking for me. Here I am. Please, take a chance on me. You won't be sorry.

Call soon.

Love,
Tanner

Introducing Trooper, a tall, dark and handsome Springer guy looking for love. This 66-pounder is a smart, friendly guy interested in walks, long conversations and sports. He’s just an all-around nice dog.

Trooper knows his basic commands and is housetrained. He is a fast learner who will pick up on the routine at his Forever Home in record time! He gets excited when the leash comes up and pulls at first, but not too much. His manners are good too – no countersurfing or jumping up on people from this boy.

He gets along great with adults and the young teens in his foster home and we expect he would also be fine with respectful younger children. He does well with the resident dogs. Though he seems interested in chasing cats, his foster mom thinks he means no harm and could learn to peacefully coexist. Visitors are initially greeted with some barking but then he makes friends quickly. Trooper isn’t as Velcro as some Springers, but he does like to be around people. He’s not a lap dog (which is probably a good thing since he’s a larger Springer).

Trooper does have his quirks. He has a lot to say and will bark to make his wishes known. He will also keep you laughing when he has long discussions with his toys. His foster family moved the water bowl outside because he carries the bowl in his mouth, trailing water as he walks. His mouth and chin are always wet.

Won’t you consider sharing your home and your love with Mr. Tall, Dark and Handsome? He might just be your perfect match.

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.

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.

Update 8/23/17: Shelby is a happy, fun loving young dog who gets along great with dogs, cats and people. She loves running around the yard, snuggling with the humans, wrestling and chasing the other dogs in her foster home and swimming in the lake. She is ready to share her love with a Forever Family.


Hi everyone, I'm Shelby and my life has gotten so much better in these last few months! I used to live in a tiny space with many other dogs, some of which were my children and relatives. Then the wonderful folks from ESRA got me out of that place and into a real home. These days, I spend most of my time inside with my foster family. There's always a warm bed, a bowl of kibble just for me and someone willing to pet me and teach me new things.

Before I got here, I didn't realize what I was missing. Everything was new and a bit scary. Car rides frightened me at first, but now I have decided they are great fun, so I hop right in and enjoy the ride. I've blossomed into a confident, happy dog and am ready for any adventure. Hiking, walking, swimming, boating -- let's do it!

Love, Shelby


Shelby's foster mom says that Shelby is one of the smartest dogs she has met. Shelby is housetrained, sweet, well-mannered and quickly learned her new name and mastered both "Leave It" and "Come."

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

Chloe Lisette's foster mom describes this nice girl as sweet, friendly and social with people and other dogs. She is a happy dog with her tail constantly in motion. We have no idea how such a great dog ended up in a shelter, but thankfully the shelter contacted ESRA and Chloe got a second chance at a happy life.

Unfortunately, Chloe did have to go through heartworm treatment, but she was a good patient -- calm and cooperative and content to rest in her crate. Now that she's feeling better, she is playing with other dogs and more active. She's gained a few needed pounds, her appetite is great and her coat is sleek and shiny. She is ready to find her Forever Home.

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!

THINKING ABOUT BRINGING A SENIOR SPRINGER INTO YOUR FAMILY? Read why rescuing Senior Springers is a top priority for ESRA.
Dakota, lovingly known as Kota, is a very sweet, healthy, and docile senior. She is affectionate, warm and wants her tummy, ears, and chest rubbed every day. She loves to ride in the car, go to the park and mingle with people. Kota would be fine in a home with other dogs and cats. She knows basic commands such as "Sit," "Stay," "Come," and "Roll Over" (with assistance). She walks slowly and nicely on a leash.

Kota would do well with school-aged and older children. She doesn’t mind being left in a secure, comfortable soft area for a short time while her family runs a few errands. Kota is a good sleeper, appreciates a daily routine, and enjoys eating. In fact, she will let you know using nice manners that it is time to eat!

Kota is a typically warm and happy senior Springer. She is low maintenance and an easygoing girl. Won’t you consider offering her some love and comfort for the rest of her golden years?

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