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.
Chester is a 7 1/2 year old liver & white Springer. His owners have just had a baby and are no longer able to give him the attention and love that he needs. They both need to work and would need to leave Chester and his companion Bronte home alone all day which is not fair. Chester is brilliant with children. He has a lovely personality. He is used to other dogs and cats. He lives with Bronte who is a Red Setter X Labrador who is also looking for a new home. Unfortunately, Chester has started to have a few epileptic fits and is now on medication that seems to work. CAESSR will fund the cost of his medication. Chester pulls a bit on the lead but is better on a halti lead. His recall is excellent. He barks when first put in the car to travel but is OK after 5 minutes. He is OK when left home alone for short periods. A special home is sought for Chester.
Horlicks is just 13 years old and is a lemon & white Springer X Cocker. He is about the size of an average Springer. His family has to move to new accommodation where they cannot keep a dog. Horlicks is a very fit dog. He just has a fatty lump on his tummy and a little wort under his eye that are not worth removing at his age. Horlicks is excellent on and off the lead. He is used to children, other dogs and cats. He is used to sleeping outside in a kennel so will need to be house trained. He travels well in the car and can be left for short periods.
Bronte is a 9 1/2 year old red Red Setter X Labrador who has lived with Chester the Springer for the past 3 1/2 years. Her original owner was poorly and couldn't manage her. If possible, she would like to be rehomed with Chester. Bronte is a very fit dog who likes to swim and will walk for hours! She has a cough if she lies down for a long time. It was caused by an infection when she was a puppy that has left a scar on her lung. Bronte is brilliant with children. She is good with other dogs and cats. Her recall is good and she is walked using a halti lead. She travels well in the car and can be left for short periods.
Flora is just 9 years old and she is a chocolate working type cocker. Her owners have recently moved to a smaller home with a very small garden and Flora has not settled. She is becoming less tolerant to very small children and other animals that invade her space especially the young dachsund puppy that she lives with. There are young children in the street and she can be snappy towards them. Flora is looking for a quieter home. She is used to cats. She is a loving dog who is still very active and she enjoys her walks. She pulls a bit on the lead. She has excellent recall. She travels well in the car and can be left just for short periods.
Jack is a 5 1/2 year old liver & white springer. His owner is now working longer hours and Jack is being left with the owner's Mum who is elderly and has mobility issues. Jack is bored and he is now being territorial at times towards Mum and showing his teeth. He can also be posessive with items that he picks up off the floor - Mum can't cope. Jack hasn't had contact with children. He either ignores or wants to play with other dogs on walks and he doesn't take much notice of cats. He pulls on the lead but is better walked on a harness. His recall is good. He travels well in the car and can be left for short periods.
Hugo is an 18 month old red working type cocker. His owners have moved into a property that doesn't allow pets so Hugo needs a new home. Hugo is a boisterous young dog who is used to children. He is very inquisitive when meeting other dogs and likes to go to them when he is off lead. He barks at cats! He pulls on the lead but is better when walked on a harness. His recall is good. He travels well in the car and can be left just for a couple of hours.
Snoop is a 15 month old black & white Springer X Cocker. His owner is soon changing her work hours and will be unable to give him the time that a boisterous young dog needs. Snoop has not had much contact with children but seems to want to interact with them when on walks. He lives with another older dog but shows food aggression towards this dog. He may need to be the only dog in the home. He has no experience of cats. He can also guard bones & long-lasting chews - so is not now given those. He pulls a lot on his lead but is better on a halti lead. His recall needs more work. Snoop travels well in the car and has been left for 2/3 hours but he had the other dog for company.
Hugo and Ralph are just 4 years old and are golden show type cockers (who may be part working type). They are litter brothers and are looking for a new home together. Their owners now have a young child and another baby on the way and they cannot give them the time and attention they need. They are good with children and with other dogs but have not lived with a cat. Hugo and Ralph are quite challenging on the lead at the start of a walk and they can have selective deafness when off-lead! Ralph is "top dog" and he also needs his ears cleaned regularly as they can become inflamed. Both travel well in the car and can be left for short periods.
