Spaniels that have found their new forever homes during this month
Rosie is almost 5 years old and is a Gold and White working type cocker. Her owner is now working very long shifts and Rosie is very stressed and is having accidents in the home. She lives with an older female cocker but the two don't bond. Rosie is a nervous dog - especially when meeting people for the first time. You have to let her come to you. She is good at the groomers but sometimes needs to be muzzled at the vets. She has an extra claw on one foot. Rosie is used to a young grandchild. She is good with other dogs but has no cat experience. She is quite good on and off the lead. She travels well in the car.
Snoop is an 18 month old black & white Springer X Cocker. His owner has changed her work hours and is 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 female dog. Snoop loves his food and will pull food off worktops if it is left too close to the edge. He has no experience of cats. He can also guard bones and 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.
Max is about 4 1/2 years old and is a liver & white springer. He needs a new home due to a change in family circumstances. Max is brilliant with children and has lived OK with another dog although the two did not bond. He has not lived with a cat. Max is possessive with bones and large chews so he is not given them. He pulls on the lead and gets very excited to go out. His recall is getting better but is not brilliant. He travels well in the car and can be left for short periods.
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.
Luna is a six year old black working type cocker. She needs a new home as she doesn't like the noisy toddler in the home and she is getting very stressed. Luna is now being looked after by the owner's Mum but Mum looks after the toddler when her daughter is at work. Luna is a very loyal dog who seems to prefer a lady owner. She is very ball orientated and she will walk for miles. Her recall is excellent. She walks OK on a normal or extending lead. She is good with other dogs but has no cat experience. She travels well in the car and can be left for short periods.
Arthur is a 3 1/2 year old black working type cocker with a little white on his chest. He needs a new home due to work commitments. The owner's parents used to help with his care but can no longer do so. Arthur is brilliant with 2 young nieces who visit. He is good with other dogs but is not used to cats. He is a very playful dog and loves his toys but can steal shoes, soft toys or the TV remote and will sit on the laptop computer if you are too busy to play! Arthur pulls a bit on the lead but is amazingly good when off lead. He loves to travel in the car and will stay home alone for short periods.
Dolly is about 3 1/2 years old and is a liver Springer X Cocker Spaniel. She was handed in at a vets in a terrible state having had puppies. She was suffering from Mastitis. She was in a lot of pain and was very frightened. Her treatment was started and she came to CAESSR. We know nothing of her history but she seems to be a lovely dog.
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.
