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.

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 AJ.

About English Springer Rescue America, Inc. - Minneapolis Chapter

About Our Rescue Group...

English Springer Rescue America, Inc. (ESRA) is a national referral and foster care purebred placement organization, and a 501(c)3 nonprofit corporation. ESRA's mission is to provide foster care to English Springers impounded by humane societies, private shelters, and animal control facilities nationwide, as well as to offer adoption referral services for those agencies.

Our Adoption Process...

Thank you for considering a rescue Springer. Rescue Springers are extremely loving and intelligent dogs looking for a caring home to give them a second start at life.

The following adoption application will help us determine the characteristics you are looking for in a dog, as well as who in our organization will respond to your inquiry. Please read this page carefully!

Adoption applications and fees will be required. The adoption fee for a dog in ESRA's foster care program is $300, except for dogs in our Seniors for Seniors program, for which the adoption fee is waived if both the dog and adopter are senior citizens. Foster dogs placed are spayed and neutered, current with vaccinations, and heartworm negative. We do ask that if you adopt a dog through our referral program, you make a tax-deductible donation to help us continue to care for other Springers who need assistance when found to be unwanted, abandoned, and abused.

When meeting a rescue dog, please try to spend as much time as possible with the dog to evaluate compatibility before making the decision to adopt. If you consider an interstate adoption, please discuss the dog's temperament, health, and transportation options very thoroughly with the shelter or foster home before making the decision to adopt the dog. In the best interest of yourself, your family, and the rescue dog, please make certain that the dog you choose to adopt is the right dog for you. Adoption is a big commitment!

It should be understood that applications for adopting a Springer through English Springer Rescue America, Inc. (ESRA) are subject to acceptance based on a review process that requires collecting information from an application, phone interview, vet and/or personal reference check, and possibly a home visit. This information should be submitted, and this process completed, before you meet a rescue dog available for adoption.

Making decisions about dog placement in adoptive homes is an "art", not a "science", and there might be times when applications will be denied for various reason(s). This is left to the discretion of the ESRA coordinator after reviewing all available information. ESRA reserves the right to make all decisions regarding placement or final disposition of any rescued dog in its care into a foster or adoptive home. There is absolutely no guarantee, made or implied, that any person or persons requesting to adopt a Springer Spaniel being fostered through ESRA, or posted on ESRA's web site, will be granted an adoption.
