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.
Henry is a small 9 year old Blue Roan show type Cocker. He is urgently looking for a new home. His owner needs to help with an elderly relative and with her grandchildren and Henry is getting more and more anxious when left home alone. He needs a better life with more company in his latter years. He is OK with the small grandchildren, but he is jealous and attention seeks by howling. He is good with other dogs, but has no experience with cats. He is OK on the lead, but pulls initially with excitement. His recall is usually good. He had a visit to his vet at the beginning of the year with a bout of Spondylitis. He is OK now and is able to climb the stairs. He travels very well in the car.
Cooper is a 12 month old Liver and White Springer. His owner is unable to give him the time and attention that he deserves due to work commitments. We are looking for a special home for Cooper as he has detached retinas and he has very little sight. He has been referred to an eye specialist and nothing can be done. He hasn't lived with children, but has been looked after by a friend with two children and he was fine with them. He has no cat experience. He is good with other dogs and is a little submissive to them. He has been to doggy day care and enjoyed it. He may enjoy being homed with another dog. Cooper pulls a bit on the lead, but has excellent recall. He travels well in the car and can be left for short periods.
Archie is a 9.5 year old Black and White working type Cocker. His owner has been made homeless and cannot find somewhere to live that will accept dogs. Archie has always lived with the same owner. There is now a young child in the family, who Archie will allow to pat him - but he generally keeps out of the child's way. He has not lived with another dog or with a cat. Archie has a sensitive stomach and is fed on a special food. He occasionally gets a sore ear, which needs treating with ear-drops. At present, Archie lives in a flat and he would love to have his own garden and someone who is around most of the day. He is quite good on the lead, but will pull if he sees a cat or a squirrel. He is fairly good off lead, but is sometimes a bit slow to return. He travels well in the car.
Lexi is a 5 year old Liver and White Springer. Her owner is working longer hours and the neighbours are complaining about Lexi's barking. Lexi is left in her crate and destroys her bedding. She is bored and her owners admit that she is crated far too much. Lexi is used to children. She is good with the cat and is good with other dogs. She takes treats gently from the children, but she is a fussy eater. Her owners have no time to train her. She pulls a lot on the lead using her back legs to pull harder. Her recall needs work, but she won't loose you. She travels in a crate in the car, but gets restless and agitated.
Monty is a 21 month old black working type cocker. His owners now have four children and are unable to give him the time and exercise that he deserves. Monty is good with children but if they get too noisy he takes himself away to a quieter space. He is good with other dogs but can be a bit wary of large dogs. He has not lived with a cat. He can walk well on a lead but gets excited initially and will pull. He runs off-lead in a large open field. He travels well in the car. Monty can bark when left home alone and is usually only left for short periods for the school run.
Reggie is a 2 1/2 year old liver & white springer. He has lived with his present owner for about five months. Reggie lives in a rural area where there are lots of sheep and he has attacked sheep on a couple of occasions. He is good off-lead but there is nowhere safe away from sheep for him to have a good run. Reggie has had two previous homes. His first home was with autistic children and his owners couldn't cope. In his second home, he was neglected and left shut in a garage. We are not sure how he behaves with children. He lives happily with an older male cocker spaniel but he is aggressive towards the border terrier who lives next door. He has no cat experience. Reggie pulls on the lead but is better on a harness. He travels well in the car and can be left for short periods.
Ruby is a 9 1/2 year old golden working type cocker. She needs a new home as she is anxious around the toddler in the family and there is a new baby expected soon. She seems to be frightened of young children and tries to avoid them. Ruby has spent time with the owner's Mum's dogs and she is fine but can be possessive with treats and bones. She will take them to her bed and sit on them and growl at the other dog. Ruby tolerates an outside cat. She has a few separation anxiety issues and can bark if left home alone too long. She is good on and off the lead. She is on medication for a weak bladder. She travels well in the car. Ruby is looking for a quiet loving retirement home.
Ruby is a 6 year old Black Springer x Cocker with White on her chest. Ruby is very much loved by her owner, but new baby is expected and they don't think that she will cope. She is very protective of her family and is wary of strangers. She makes a lot of noise, but has never attacked anyone. Ruby is looking for an active, experienced owner. She hates cats. She loves her ball, but doesn't always retrieve. She is partly trained to the whistle and will recall, but she is easily distracted. She has met other dogs on shoots and is fine, but is a bit wary initially. Ruby knows how to walk to heel. Recently, she has lived in an outside kennel, but she used to sleep in the kitchen. She travels well in the car and can be left for short periods. Her owner describes her as a flighty dog!
