We have an ever changing number of Spaniels in our care. Those published below are only a selection of those looking for their “forever” home. The old and young, alike, are not immune from searching for that special someone to look after them.
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.
Riley is a six year old black & white working type cocker who needs a new home due to a change in family circumstances. Riley is used to older children. He is good with other dogs but will possibly need to be the only dog in the home. He has no cat experience. He is quite good on the lead and calms down after pulling initially and his recall is good. Riley will need an experienced home with good house rules as he can be a bit dominant. He will guard objects - e.g. letters, crisp packets, but will back down eventually and he can be protective of his home. He travels well in the car, but again he will bark at people he sees out of the window. He can be left for short periods.
Rosie is almost 5 years old and is a ginger 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.
Scooby is a 4 1/2 year old golden working type cocker. His owner has passed away and his present carer can't keep him. Scooby used to live happily with an older female dog and comfortable if left home alone for short periods. Now he hates being left. Scooby is quite a nervous dog who likes to follow his owner around. He doesn't like loud noises and can be spooked e.g by a child approaching on a skateboard - so it is difficult to trust him off-lead. He can be possessive with items he picks up in the home but he is easily distracted. He doesn't like being patted roughly. He loves travelling in the car but can protect the car by barking if left in it alone. He has no cat experience. He is OK with children but may enjoy a quiet home.
Squiggle is a 6 year old liver & white springer. He needs a new home as both his owners are now working long hours and Squiggle is spending too much time home alone. Squiggle is used to children. He is used to being the only dog in the home and he ignores other dogs when he is off lead. He has not lived with a cat. He loves his walks and likes to walk ahead of the group but he does pull on the lead. He loves being off lead. He tends to make a large circle around his family and comes back when called. He is good when left home alone for short periods. He travels well in the car but can whine for 10 minutes or so until he settles. CAESSR is looking for an experiened home for Squiggle and behaviourist help will be available. Squiggle becomes very protective of his family and needs to placed out of the way when someone comes to the door. He also barks at other dogs when he is walking on lead.
Jack is a 5 1/2 year old liver & white springer. His owner is now working longer hours and Jack is being left with the owner's Mum who is elderly and has mobility issues. Jack is bored and he is now being territorial at times towards Mum and showing his teeth. He can also be posessive with items that he picks up off the floor - Mum can't cope. Jack hasn't had contact with children. He either ignores or wants to play with other dogs on walks and he doesn't take much notice of cats. He pulls on the lead but is better walked on a harness. His recall is good. He travels well in the car and can be left for short periods. CAESSR is looking for an experienced home for Jack and behaviourist help will be available. Jack weighed 35kg when he came to us. He needed grooming and behaved very well at the groomers. He had to be muzzled at the vets but we believe that the cause was extremely sore ears. His ears have been cleared under anaesthetic and he is now enjoying his walks with the kennel staff and volunteers.
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.
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.
