Needing Homes

We have an ever changing number of Spaniels in our care. The old and young, alike, are not immune from searching for that special someone to look after them.

To view a dog you must first make an appointment through the Homing Team.

Due to the current Coronavirus epidemic our adoption and surrender operations have been suspended. Please bear with us, we promise we will open again as soon as we possibly can.

Jewel is a 7 year old blue roan show type cocker. She has only lived with her present owners for the last 3 years. Previously, she had been used for breeding. Jewel has quite a nervous personality and she barks a lot. She hasn't had any contact with children. She doesn't know how to play. She can bark at other dogs when on walks. She is scared if they come too close to her. She barks at ladders and is scared of loud noises. Jewel is lovely with the owner's elderly Mum. She pulls a bit when on lead. However, her recall is good. She doesn't enjoy travelling very much. She can be left for short periods. Jewel is recovering at present from having a pyometra.


Carter is a 3-year-old working cocker. He is a very active dog and very easily excited. He needs a new home as his previous home struggled to cope with his energy. He needs help to teach him to be calm as Carter barks for attention, food and with excitement. Caessr is looking initially for a foster home for Carter with view to rehoming. He would be best suited with a couple or a person with no dogs and no young children as initially he'll need a calm environment and plenty of exercise to help him. It is preferable that the foster parents have previous dog experience and are willing to work with our dog behaviourist in helping Carter. He is a lovely dog and very friendly to people but needs some socialisation around dogs as he becomes over-excited when he sees them. With patience and support he can become a much calmer dog and learn that calm behaviour will be rewarded. He travels well in a car. He walks well on short lead and will recall for a ball but can be distracted. 

It can be a very rewarding experience to work with a foster dog and our dog behaviourist Karen at Bright Behaviour. Experiencing how you can change a dog’s life and make him happier by engaging his nose and brain, ignoring all the noise and sometimes, in a very short space of time you can see significant improvement. If you think you are up to the challenge and would like to know more about Carter please get in touch.

Carter has a slight abnormality in his small intestine. He has also been allergy tested and needs to be kept on a special diet.
