Posted 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. Please read the Adoption FAQ and get an Adoption Application approved before inquiring about Jordy. Contact: ESRA Case Managers, Ellie Starks and Rebecca Thompsonspringerrescuemidwest@gmail.com.

More About English Springer Spaniel Breed
If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: Shakopee, MN
      Posted Breed: English Springer Spaniel (medium coat). Age: 7 years Gender: Female Color: Liver & White Weight: 45 lbs Variety: Field Hi, everyone--my name is Blondie! My foster mom says that I am a love bug, and it's true. I really relish people's attention! I wake up happy, and I fall asleep with a smile. Not only am I healthy, smart, and active, but I am also a very loyal companion. Some of my hobbies are playing ball, walking on a lead, and sniffing around the yard. My nose will lead me all over, which is why my foster mom insists that I have a fenced yard. Because I am extremely focused, Mom also says that I am a good candidate for field training. I calm down easily after a good walk. I behave myself when my foster family is away, and I have been given free rein of the house when I'm on my own. I enjoy my spa days at the groomers. My visits give me the chance to show off my sleek fieldie coat. Because I tend to chase furry kittens, it would be best if my new household did not have cats. Also, I can be choosy about my canine friends. If there is another dog in the family, I would prefer it to be on the submissive side. Human kids in my Forever Family would be great, though! We could have lots of fun together, and more people in the house would also mean more choices of beds for me! I have lots of love to give, and I'm eager to find my Forever Home. So if you think we would be a good match, please contact my coordinator at the e-mail address below. We're both looking forward to hearing from you! Affectionately, Blondie State of Wisconsin licensed and inspected: 402322-DS Please read the Adoption FAQ and get an Adoption Application approved before inquiring about Blondie.

      Breed: English Springer Spaniel
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Shakopee, MN
      Posted Breed: English Springer Spaniel (medium coat). Age: 3 years Gender: Male Color: Liver & White Weight: 65 lbs Variety: Bench Mickey is a big boy who is full of love! He is super smart and has great manners. Most importantly, he truly wants to please his people. Mickey is housetrained and crate trained. He enjoys sleeping at the end of the bed on his own doggie blanket. Mickey loves to play with the resident dogs. Even the bossy female dog in his foster home likes him! Mickey would make a great second dog in a household, but he would also do just fine as an only dog. His previous owner said that Mickey likes to chase cats and play with them, so if there are cats in his Forever Home, they will need to be dog friendly. Mickey would be fine with living with children aged seven and up; toddlers move too unpredictably, which can scare him! Would you like a companion in the car when you run errands or take road trips? Mickey enjoys riding in vehicles and is excited to look out the windows. A good bonding experience for Mickey and his adopters would include working on his basic obedience and leash training. This boy is a great student, and he treasures the treats offered as rewards for practicing commands. He continues to improve at the groomer. Mickey previously lived on two and a half acres. He would explore as much as he wanted to and then come back to the house when he was ready. Therefore, he will need a fenced yard if his Forever Home is in the city or the suburbs. Otherwise, he might think that the whole neighborhood belongs to him! At times, Mickey shows great energy. He seems to be channeling his puppy spirit as he squeaks his toys and plays with them. But Mickey also likes to settle in with his family. He will lie next to you, often watching your every move, until he falls asleep. If you think that Mickey is the companion you have been waiting for, please e-mail his coordinators at the address below right away. This charming guy won't be on the availables list for long! 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 Mickey. Contact: ESRA Case Managers, Ellie Starks and Rebecca Thompsonspringerrescuemidwest@gmail.com.

      Location: Shakopee, MN
      Posted Breed: English Springer Spaniel (medium coat). Age: 7 years Gender: Male Color: Liver & White Weight: 64 lbs Variety: Bench 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.

      Sammy

      rescue
      Breed: English Springer Spaniel
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Senior
      Location: Shakopee, MN
      Posted 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.

      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 springerrescuemidwest@gmail.com or 507-271-8107.
