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.
Linda is a 5 year old Chocolate working type Cocker with White on her chest. She needs a new home as she is very nervous around the new baby in the family. Linda will chase cats and she is quite nervous around other dogs. She will lie down if another dog comes up to her on a walk. Linda is looking for a quiet experienced home where she will be the only pet. She is usually good when she is off lead, but if she picks up a scent or sees a bird her recall is a bit slow. Linda loves to swim. She travels well in the car and can be left for short periods.
Winchester is a 4.5 year old Liver and White Springer x Cocker. He has recently nipped the owners' 3 year old son on the arm. Winchester (Winnie) has never shown aggression before to the toddler and the owners are not sure what happened. However, Winchester can nip people that he feels are a threat e.g. a stranger at the door or a runner appearing unexpectedly around the corner. He does also guard his ball when playing fetch. His owners have worked hard with the "Leave" command and also with the "stay" command when answering the door. Winchester has no cat experience and is generally OK with other dogs, but is not keen on small dogs. He does go out daily with a dog-walker. He is fairly good on the lead and has excellent recall. He loves water and going to the woods. He travels well in the car and can be left for short periods.
Casper is a 6 year old Liver and White Springer. He has come to CAESSR via the RSPCA from a home where the family were moving into rented accommodation and couldn't keep a dog. Casper is brilliant with people and is a very loving dog. He has lived OK with a child with learning disabilities. He has no cat experience, but has lived happily with a Jack Russell terrier. Casper has not been walked for over 3 years, but was left to roam the garden. This has caused him to have a problem when meeting other dogs when outside the home. He needs gradually to be socialised again with other dogs so he is looking for experienced owners who are willing to work with him. Casper loves to play ball and is good at the vets and when being groomed. He travels well in the car. He is used to constant company as the owner's disabled Mum lived with them. We now feel that Casper may be better to be given an outside life. He is happy at our kennels. In a home, he jumped on a sofa and growled at his new owner. This happened a couple of times. The couple have grandchildren visiting so returened him to CAESSR.
Jasper is a 2 year old Black show type Cocker. His owner has sadly passed away. Jasper is used to teenaged children and is good with other dogs outside the home, but he is looking for a home where he will be the only dog. He lived with a cat in the early months of his life. He is a lively, inquisitive dog, who needs more training both on and off the lead. He enjoys digging in the garden. He is quite a needy dog and likes to sleep upstairs near his owner. He can be left home alone just for an hour or two and is very excitable when you return. He hasn't travelled much, but has been OK on short journeys.
Chase is an 8 month old Liver and White Springer x Cocker, who looks more like a springer. He is a really energetic young dog. His owner has a new job, which means that Chase will need to be home alone all day. In the evening he is very good and will curl up at your feet and his owner has never used a cage. Chase is used to children and is good with other dogs. He hasn't lived with a cat. He pulls on the lead at the start of a walk and is then better and his recall training has been started. He still chews (e.g. door frames) when left home alone and he has only travelled short distances in the car.
Sandy is approximately 6 years old and is a Liver and White Springer. He has come to CAESSR looking for a new home as he was found straying. He is quite a small Springer, thin with a part docked tail. He is quite lively and travels well in the car. He has been to our vets. His heart and lungs are good and his teeth are fine. When at the vets he barked at other dogs, but also wagged his tail!. He will be going to the groomers prior to being rehomed.
Sandy has a lovely personality, however he has a very unreliable recall. He walks very well on the lead.
