Spaniels that have found their new forever homes during this month
Billy is a 16 month old liver & white springer. His elderly owner has broken his leg after falling when another dog, who Billy was playing with, ran into him. The couple can no longer manage a young boisterous springer. Billy is a typical young springer who would knock over younger children. He is house trained, good with other dogs and has good recall. However, he pulls on the lead and still "mouths" for attention. He travels OK in the car.
Blue is a 6 months old Blue Roan show type Cocker. She was given to an 85 year old lady as a gift. She has come to CAESSR for rehoming. She seems to be a very friendly puppy, who understands basic commands.
Max is a 4 year old black & white show type cocker who needs a new home as he suffers with terrible separtation anxiety and can't be left home alone while his family are at work. He destroys items in the home and chews them. In all other respects he is a perfect dog. He is brilliant with children and very friendly with other dogs. He has stayed with a neighbour for his holidays and was good with the cat. He is good on and off the lead and he travels well in the car. Max may be best homed with another dog so that his owner can leave him for a short period.
Skye is a 3 year old blue roan springer x cocker. She needs a new home as she has bitten a 3 year old child. The child went to fuss the dog and was not badly hurt. Skye would be best homed where there are no children or visiting children. She has no cat experience and also needs a home where she will be the only dog. She can be aggressive to other dogs when out walking. However, she has stayed with a neighbour and her two dogs when the family were on holiday and she was fine eventually with those two dogs. Skye has slight hip dysplasia and needs plenty of exercise to build up the muscle. She pulls on the lead. She is good off lead but the family have started to muzzle her due to her aggression towards other dogs. She travels well in the car and can be left for short periods.
Sam is a 14 month old liver & white springer. He was handed in to a rescue in Northern Ireland along with three Irish Setters. CAESSR was approached by Irish Setter Rescue to find a new home for Sam. Sam is a small springer who seems very friendly. He travels well and understands 'SIT'. He arrived with his yellow ball that he really loves. We know nothing of his history but he is looking for a home with plenty of activity and stimulation.
Penny is a 3 year old apricot & white working type cocker. She was rescued from a puppy farm earlier in the year and has been fostered by her rescuer and she is now looking for a forever home. Penny has had a very bad start in life and is used to being with other dogs. She is nervous when first meeting new people. You need to wait for her to come to you. She would be best homed with no children. Penny has not been used for breeding and she is now nearly house trained. Penny is more confident off-lead and will walk next to you. Lead training is ongoing as she nervous when you put the lead on. She travels well in the car and is OK when left for a short period especially if she has another dog for company.

Toby has a very lovely placid nature and he likes a lot of fuss and attention. However, he does bark for food. Toby is used to older children. He is used to cats. He pulls a bit on the lead but his recall is good. He travels well in the car and can be left for short periods.

They are looking for a new home toegther as their owner has moved into rented accommodation and can't keep them. They are used to older children and good with other dogs. They have not lived with a cat. Copper walks quite well on a lead and is good when off-lead unless Rosie decides to run further away. Rosie pulls on the lead and her recall needs a lot more training.
