Posted Breed: English Springer Spaniel. INTERESTED IN FOSTERING A SPRINGER FOR ESRA? The Foster Home program is the most important aspect of ESRA's organization. Our Foster Homes provide immeasurable assistance to our Springers by providing them with housing, medical care, rehabilitation, exercise, and love. Frequently dogs that are in our Foster program have previously been in stressful and sometimes abusive situations and the Foster Home environment gives these dogs time to heal their wounds and gain confidence in their relationship with others before they go on to permanent placement. Fostering can lead to adoption - the choice is yours. It can be a chance to experience life with a Springer before making a long-term commitment. ESRA Foster Homes are screened, placing dogs only in homes that are approved as responsible and reliable. All dogs will be spayed and neutered, fully vaccinated, and tested for heartworm while in foster care. To graduate a dog from foster care to permanent placement is a success and a happy ending made possible only by ESRA's foster home members! If you would like to foster a dog for ESRA, please complete a Foster Home Application (http://www.springerrescue.org/join/foster_form.html). Please contact our MN/IA/ND/SD coordinator for information. Ellie Starks at email@example.com or 507-271-8107.

verifiedPosted Breed: English Springer Spaniel (medium coat). E Age: 8 years Gender: Female Color: Liver & White Weight: 50 lbs Variety: Bench We would like to thank Sarah Ernhart of Sarah Beth Photography, Minneapolis/Saint Paul, for generously donating the photos of Mandy displayed here. Visit her website. Mandy was picked up as a stray in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan in January of 2016. We're still not sure how this sweet older girl ended up as a stray, but she has been embracing the good life since coming into ESRA's care. We don't know exactly how old Mandy is, but her veterinarian estimates her to be around eight years old. She has some age-related changes to her eyes, but she can still see very well. She is hard of hearing. Mandy was in pretty rough shape when she was taken in by our volunteers, but with a lot of great care, she's working on getting healthy! She will soon have a dental cleaning, and the large lump on her left rib cage will be removed before she goes to her new home. Mandy is currently working out on the underwater treadmill to help her lose weight safely and gain muscle. Since January, she has lost twenty pounds, with just a bit more yet to lose. Mandy is currently under the care of a rehabilitation veterinarian to help her get strong and healthy. It would be great if she could continue to see her rehab vet once she has been adopted so that she can remain as strong and physically healthy as possible. Mandy loves to be involved in the daily life of her family, but she is also comfortable being left home alone. She enjoys going for walks, running laps around the yard, napping in the sun, cuddling, and playing with a select few toys. She's just one of those very good dogs who is easy to live with and to love. 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 Mandy. Contact: ESRA Case Managers, Ellie Starks and Rebecca Thompsonspringerrescuemidwest@gmail.com.

verifiedPosted Breed: English Springer Spaniel (medium coat). Age: 12 years Gender: Male Color: Liver & White Weight: 50 lbs Variety: Field Thinking about bringing Sammy or another wonderful Senior Springer into your family? Read why rescuing Senior Springers is a top priority for ESRA. http://www.springerrescue.org/seniors/index.html Let us introduce you to Sammy! He was found as a stray, so we really don't know much about his past. The vet has guessed that he's at least twelve years old. When Sammy was picked up by ESRA at the shelter, all we knew was that he was an older boy who was in need of some attention and health care. Sammy has had his teeth cleaned, and three teeth have been pulled. He's also been neutered, and with a steady diet of good food, he's gotten some spring back in his step. His stiff back legs are helped by a daily dose of tramadol. As a senior dog, Sammy's eyesight is a bit restricted, and his hearing isn't the best either, but he still enjoys going for a walk, being playful, and having a nice head rub and snuggle now and then. Because of his limited eyesight, Sammy can be startled and may growl when he doesn't know right away what's going on. This is especially true if you try to wake him up from a nap. So far, Sammy does not have full run of the house, as he has occasional accidents, but he's quite happy to wear pants in the house or to simply curl up in his kennel and nap. He enjoys being in his kennel because it's his special place, and he will often run into it when he comes in from outside. As Sammy has settled into his foster home, he has enjoyed time with the resident dogs and has quickly picked up on the daily routines. Sammy's ideal Forever Home will be a quiet one that does not have small children. If you are looking for a gentle, low-key companion, Sammy should be a great fit. For more information, contact his case managers at the e-mail address below. 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 Sammy. Contact: ESRA Case Managers, Ellie Starks and Rebecca Thompsonspringerrescuemidwest@gmail.com.

verifiedPosted Breed: English Springer Spaniel (medium coat). Age: 10 years Gender: Male Color: Liver & White Weight: 47 lbs Variety: Field 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? He is being fostered in Baraboo, WI.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.
