Spaniels that have found their new forever homes during this month
Lola is a 4 year old Golden show type Cocker. She needs a new home due to a change in family circumstances. She now has to be left home alone for long hours while her owner is at work. She is a "people dog" and always wants to be next to her owner. She has not lived with another dog and is looking for a home where she will be the only dog. Lola lives with teenage children and with a cat, but can be nervous around other dogs, especially when she is on a lead. Lola is a greedy dog and will raid the bin and steal food if allowed. She pulls on the lead, but is OK if on a harness. She is not let off her lead if she is near water as she will jump in and chase ducks. She is kept on an extending lead if she is on the beach, however, her recall is good if she is in the woods. She tries to catch birds if in the garden. Lola travels well in the car and can be left just for short periods.
Charlie is a 9 month old Chocolate working type Cocker. His owners' work hours have changed, which means that Charlie needs to be left home alone in his cage most of t he day. Charlie is a lovely puppy, who really loves other dogs and wants to play. He hasn't lived with children and has no experience with cats. He pulls a lot on the lead. His recall training is going well and he comes back most of the time. He travels well in the car.
Murphy is a 2 year old Black Cocker x Poodle. His family have a young child, who Murphy tolerates and they are expecting a second child soon, so don't have the time to give Murphy the time that he deserves. Murphy is good with other dogs, but he hasn't lived with a cat. He can be a little timid when meeting new people. He is good on and off the lead. He can be left home alone for a couple of hours. He has free roam of the downstairs of the house. He sleeps in his crate, but he is not shut in it. He travels well in the car.
Toby is an 8 months old Blue Roan working type Cocker. The owners' work hours have changed and they can no longer give him the time and training he needs. Toby has growled at the 2 year old child in the family. We suspect that he is jealous as he just wants lots of cuddles from his owners. He has no cat experience. He loves to play with other dogs and is quite submissive with them. He pulls a lot on the lead. He used to be good when off lead, but now he is not reliable as he wants to sniff out scents and play with other dogs. He travels well in the car. If left home alone he can be destructive, chewing wires and paperwork etc.
