Needing Homes

We have an ever changing number of Spaniels in our care. Those published below are only a selection of those looking for their “forever” home. The old and young, alike, are not immune from searching for that special someone to look after them.



Scooby is a 4 1/2 year old golden working type cocker. His owner has passed away and his present carer can't keep him. Scooby used to live happily with an older female dog and comfortable if left home alone for short periods. Now he hates being left. Scooby is quite a nervous dog who likes to follow his owner around. He doesn't like loud noises and can be spooked e.g by a child approaching on a skateboard - so it is difficult to trust him off-lead. He can be possessive with items he picks up in the home but he is easily distracted. He doesn't like being patted roughly. He loves travelling in the car but can protect the car by barking if left in it alone. He has no cat experience. He is OK with children but may enjoy a quiet home. Scooby is behaving very well at kennels. CAESSR is looking for a special home for Scooby. He is very happy in kennels. He is very friendly with the kennel staff and OK with the dog next door to him. However, when homed alongside an elderly female cocker, he bit her twice. Scooby is very possessive with items that he picks up and insists on raiding the kitchen bin. We are looking for someone who can give him an active rural outdoor life with an outdoor kennel to use if necessary.



Squiggle is a 6 year old liver & white springer. He needs a new home as both his owners are now working long hours and Squiggle is spending too much time home alone. CAESSR is looking for a special home for Squiggle. We think he is a "one man or woman dog". Once he trusts that person, he will "protect". He doesn't like another person coming into his home - he will need to be put out of the way. He also doesn't like walking past other people with dogs when he is on the lead. We are told that he is good when off lead. Also that he is good when left home alone for short periods and that he travels well in the car. We are looking for an experienced person (or couple) who are looking for a project! He is a lovely dog.



Phoebe is a 9 year old black working type cocker. She needs a new home as her owners are leaving the country. Phoebe is a lovely dog who loves fuss and attention. She can go up to people and bark to be patted. She is used to being the only dog and would suit an older couple. However, she is still very active and can manage a 10 mile hike! Phoebe is not good with young children. She has no cat experience but she is good with other dogs that she meets on walks especially the larger dogs. She is good on and off the lead. She travels well in the car and can be left for short periods.



Archie is a 4 1/2 year old liver & white springer who needs a new home as his owner is a childminder and Archie doesn't like some of the new children she is looking after during the day. Archie is brilliant with the teenaged boys that he lives with and was fine with the previous group of children. The owner cannot take any risks. Archie has no cat experience. He is good with other dogs outside the home. His recall is good and he likes to chase his ball. He pulls on the lead but is better on a figure of eight lead. He is well behaved when left for short periods. He can be an excitable traveller if he thinks he is going to his local running off lead place. If he is going on a long journey he is given a good walk first.



Archie is a 13 month old light & dark golden working type cocker. His owners are now unable to give him the exercise that he needs. Archie is a nice natured dog but is very needy. He gets anxious even if his owners are elsewhere in the house. He can only be left for a very short period. He can wee with nerves if he gets anxious. He is good with other dogs and is submissive to them. He has no cat experience and has only occasionally met children. He walks reasonably well on the lead and his recall training is going well. He travels well in the car.


Sweep is about 11 years old and is a black & white show type cocker. He was handed into the local dogs home along with Sooty. We know little of his history and have found that the pair are happier when separated. Sweep is looking for a permanent retirement home with help if necessary from CAESSR. He has had some teeth removed and also a lump removed from his mouth. We are awaiting biopsy results. He also has a lump in one ear and is most likely deaf. His ears have been cleaned. He seems to be a very friendly boy.

Sweep is looking for a home with no other dogs or cats. He suffers with separation anxiety and is noisy when left home alone. His recall is not good, possibly as he may be a bit deaf, so he will need to be walked on lead.


Fudge is a 6 1/2 year old ginger working type cocker. He needs a new home as the neighbours are complaining of his barking when he is left home alone. He is never left more than a couple of hours. Fudge is used to children of all ages. He hasn't lived with a cat or with another dog but he is friendly towards other dogs when on walks. He sleeps in the hall on a piece of carpet as he can still chew bedding but he will try and get upstairs to sleep on the bed. He pulls initially when on the lead but walks well along side a buggy. He is good when off lead especially if you have treats in your pocket. He travels well but can get restless on a long journey.

Fudge has returned to CAESSR having been rehomed with two other younger cockers for company. However, he seems to be a "loner" and doesn't play with the other dogs. Fudge would suit an older couple who don't need to leave him home alone or he would suit someone who needs a companion dog for an older spaniel.


Maisie is an 8 year old Black show type Cocker whose owner has sadly passed away. His wife cannot cope as Maisie suffers with separation anxiety when left home alone. She chews things and has accidents. She is used to children and has no experience of cats. She is OK with other dogs but can be wary of large dogs. She is good on and off the lead and travels well in the car.

Maisie needs a home where she will be thye only dog receiving all the fuss and attention.
