Spaniels that have found their new forever homes during this month
Ollie is a 6 1/2 year old tri-colour show type cocker. His owners have moved home and changed jobs which means that Ollie is being left home alone all day. Ollie is used to living with children. He is good around other dogs and has not lived with a cat. He can pull a little on the lead so his owners use a halti and this works well. His recall is excellent. He travels well in the car. He can be left home alone just for short periods but gets stressed if left too long.
Bobby is a 2 year old Black and White working type Cocker. He needs a new home as he has become aggressive towards the other male cocker in the family - especially where food is concerned. CAESSR is looking for an experienced home for Bobby where he will possibly be the only dog. This young dog needs lots of space, activity and stimulation. He needs to be in a home with no children. He has lived with a cat. He has reasonable recall and does understand "heel" when walking on lead. He travels well in the car and can be left home alone for a couple of hours.
Bella is a 7 1/2 year old golden working type cocker. Her elderly owner is struggling to cope with Bella's needs for exercise and stimulation. Bella is a lovely dog who likes to interact with children when on walks. She is good with other dogs but has lived as an only dog receiving all the fuss and attention. She has no cat experience. She walks well on the lead and has good recall unless distracted by other people, dogs or interesting smells. She travels well in the car and can be left for short periods. Bella is available in the South West of England.
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. Squiggle is used to children. He is used to being the only dog in the home and he ignores other dogs when he is off lead. He has not lived with a cat. He loves his walks and likes to walk ahead of the group but he does pull on the lead. He loves being off lead. He tends to make a large circle around his family and comes back when called. He is good when left home alone for short periods. He travels well in the car but can whine for 10 minutes or so until he settles.
Rubble is a 6 month old liver & white Springer puppy. He is a typical young springer who is very boisterous and he will need to go to puppy training classes. His owner has become seriously ill. Rubble is used to children and has met other dogs. He has not lived with a cat. He pulls a lot on the lead and his recall will need to be trained. He will need to be with someone who is around most of the time and he is used to a family environment.
Rosie is a 3 year old American Cocker Spaniel. She needs a new home due to a change of circumstances. Rosie is currently living in Egypt and is returning to the UK with her owner. Her owner's future employment base is uncertain so Rosie is looking for a new home. Due to Rosie's experiences as a tiny puppy and the stressful nature of the streets of Cairo, she can be very nervous with strangers and unknown sittuations. As a tiny puppy, she was used as a toy by a child. Rosie has lived with other dogs and cats. She is good on the lead and stays close when off lead. She is a very affectionate dog but will take time to adjust to a completely new way of life and climate. She can be left for short periods but has always had doggy company.
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.
Horlicks has been living in a temporary foster home for a few weeks. He is now house trained. He has been living with three other dogs and he has enjoyed the company, comfort and cuddles!
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.
