These six “works of art”—Georgia, Frida, Vincent, Rockwell, Whistler and Hopper-- were surrendered to ESRA when their owner was no longer able to care for them. Mom was a purebred Springer; dad was a purebred Aussie. What a fabulous combination and what wonderful and brilliant dogs they’ll be! Sadly, one of the babies passed before we could get there. They came loaded with intestinal parasites and coccidia, yet arrived round, active and happy typical 5-week-old pups.

Vincent is the largest of the litter. He's very outgoing, yet very laid back at the same time. He's an absolute darling and sure to make you smile each and every day. What a look he has! Vincent will be ready for his Forever Home at 9 weeks old the week of May 20, 2019.

What are we looking for in Vincent’s Forever Home? We’re looking for a stay- or work-at-home family where Vincent will receive lots of interaction, stimulation and socialization. We’re looking for a family committed to putting in the work to raise Vincent to be a well-behaved young adult. Training is a must. An active breed, he will need a family also committed to exercising him daily and regularly.

Vincent received his initial deworming, his first round of puppy shots, and his microchip. It will be the responsibility of his adopter to get his next 2 rounds of puppy shots and Rabies vaccination at 16 weeks old. At adoption, we require a $150 spay/neuter deposit which will be returned when proof of spay/neuter is submitted to ESRA at 6 months of age.

We do adopt to out-of-state adopters but do require them to travel to Texas to meet and pick Vincent up. Puppies under six months of age will not be allowed to fly in the cargo area of a commercial aircraft.  They will be allowed to travel in the main cabin area under the front of the seat of their adopter following FAA and airline regulations.

If Vincent is your "pick of the litter", please submit an Online Adoption Application if you are interested in him. It is always the first step in our adoption process.

Important notes about puppies:  Because they are so young, each puppy will be placed on a spay/neuter contract. This means that in addition to the regular adoption fee, a monetary deposit will be required, and it will be refundable when proof of spay/neuter is supplied to ESRA.

We do not place puppies as presents or surprises. The entire prospective adopting family needs to meet the puppy. Also, please remember that puppies require a lot of care, attention, and training, and they do chew on things. The decision to get a puppy and raise it to be a healthy, happy, and well-adjusted dog is a serious commitment.
