Spaniels that have found their new forever homes during this month
Gilly is a 2 year old large Chocolate Roan working type Cocker. His family now have a baby and are unable to give him the time that he deserves. Gilly hasn't had much contact with children, but seems to have accepted the new born baby. He has been living with a young male Cocker x Poodle, who has already been rehomed and Gilly is missing the company. He has no cat experience. He pulls a lot on the lead at the beginning of a walk, but is then better. His recall is fine. He sleeps in the kitchen. He travels well in the car, but whines at first and he can be left just for short periods.
Bella is a 21 month old small Blue Roan show type Cocker. She needs a new home due to a change in family circumstances. Bella is used to children, other dogs and cats. She is good on and off the lead. She travels well in the car and can be left for short periods.
When arriving at CAESSR Bella was found to be very timid and hid when people visited her foster home. She was also not happy when walking near cars. She is now gaining in confidence.
Louie is a 2 year old Liver and White Springer. He needs a new home due to an incident with the five year old child in the family. Louie bit the child's lip and she had to have surgery. The parents didn't see what happened. The child was eating food sitting at a low table. Hence we are looking for a new home for Louie with experienced owners with no children or visiting young ones. Louie is good around other dogs and lives with three cats. He is excellent on and off the lead. He travels well in the car and can be left just for short periods.
Dizzy is a 3 year old Black and White Cocker X Cavalier Spaniel. Dizzy lives in a busy family home along with two other older, calmer dogs. The owner's wife has recently become disabled and it is difficult to walk three dogs together. Dizzy is brilliant with the children and very good with the other dogs that he lives with, but when out walking he barks incessantly and exhibits aggressive behaviour when he sees another dog. However, when on a rural country walk he is very well behaved. He is off lead and comes back immediately when called. Dizzy is used to cats. He travels well in the car. He is OK if left home alone, but is rarely left and if so has the company of the other dogs.
Dizzy is very friendly with the kennel staff, although he does kennel-guard. He has been groomed. He was very good and is feeling a lot more comfortable. He has visited the vet for a health-check and was well behaved with the vet, but barked aggressively when a large dog entered the waiting area. We are looking for a firm experienced owner for dizzy, where he will be the only dog. He needs a large garden to play in and possibly to be kept on his lead when walked.
Poppy is an 8.5 year old Liver and White Springer. Her owner's work commitments give him little time to give her the exercise and attention that she deserves. Poppy is quite a large Springer and can pull quite strongly on the lead. She becomes better after walking a while and never strays too far from you when she is off lead. Poppy is good with visiting nieces and nephews, but could knock over a young child. She is good with other dogs, but has no cat experience. She travels well in the car and is good when left home alone, but is looking for a home where she will have lots more company. Poppy has had a lump removed from her back and alos one from her mouth - both of which were benign.
Olive is a 2 year old Blue Roan show type Cocker. Her owner has two children and a baby and can't cope. Olive is good with children and wants to lick the baby. The owner's husband is working long hours and has no time to continue with Olive's training. Olive has no cat experience and is friendly and playful towards other dogs. She pulls on the lead. Her recall is good. She travels well in the car and can be left for short periods.
Digby is a 3 year old Blue Roan show type Cocker. His owner sadly passed away last summer and the owner's wife cannot manage to give him the walks that he deserves. Digby is a lovely gentle dog, who really loves children. He hates cats, but is good with other dogs. He pulls a bit on the lead. He has excellent recall. He travels well in the car and can be left for short periods.
