Spaniels that have found their new forever homes during this month
Ernie is an 8 month old black & white springer x cocker spaniel. Ernie and his litter brother need new homes as a child in the family is very allergic to the dog fur. Ernie is used to children, other dogs and cats. He is good on the lead and his recall training is progressing well. The dogs sleep in the conservatory in crates. They have been left home alone for too long periods of time for such young dogs. In hot weather they are left in the garden. Both dogs are not completely house trained. They travel well in the car but have only been on short journeys.
Chester is a 4 year old black working type cocker spaniel. Chester is gun shy and lives next to a rifle range shooting club. The constant noise causes him distress so Chester needs a new home. Sadly, Chester is slowly going blind with cataracts. Currently he has about 80% vision but the vet's opinion is that he will be blind at around 10 years of age. He has had one cataract removed but it is growing back and the specialists recommend that he shouldn't have any more surgery. Chester is very good with children, cats and with other dogs. He has grown up in a busy home environment. He loves cuddles and playing fetch. He can bark a lot with excitement. He is good on and off the lead. He travels well in the car and can be left for short periods. A special home is sought for Chester.
Ben is a 4 year old liver & white springer spaniel. He was handed in at the local dogs home as his owner had been made homeless. We are told that he is good with children and is a little nervous around other dogs. He was bred to be a working gundog but was gun shy so has always lived as a pet and is house trained. He pulls on the lead but we are told that he walked off lead beside his owner. He seems to understand the basic commands. He travelled well in the car when taken to our vet for a health check and he behaved well at the vets.
