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.
Pepper is a 15 year old black show type cocker. Her elderly owner is now not able to look after her. Pepper is currently in a CAESSR temporary foster home and she is now looking for a permanent foster home. She is a lovely dog who doesn't act her age. She has a slight heart murmur - typical for a dog her age. She is also blind but doesn't seem to realize that she is blind! She barks a bit when in a new situation but soon stops when she feels comfortable. She is good with other dogs and cats and she has met her carer's grand-children. She is enthusiastic when walked on lead but is never let off lead and she travels well in the car.
Woody is a 10 month old golden working type cocker who has come to CAESSR via the local dogs home. He was handed in as he was chewing the furniture when he was left home alone. He was very nervous when he first arrived but now he is a typical lively puppy who will need to go to puppy classes. We don't know whether he is house-trained. He was very good at the vets and seemed to want to play with other dogs that were in the waiting room.
Hawk is just turned 10 years old and is a black working type cocker. His owner now goes away a lot and Hawk needs a new family who can give him the attention that he deserves. Hawk has been a very good gun-dog who needs a retirement home. He is brilliant with the owners young grandchildren. He is good with other dogs but has not lived with a cat. He has always slept in the house so he is house trained. He is good on the lead after an initial reminder to walk to heel. He will normally come back to call or whistle when off lead. However, he now won't return when game scent is in his nostrils - so his working days are over! Hawk 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.
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 working type Cockers (who may be part show 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.
