Needing Homes

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.



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. Scooby is behaving very well at kennels. CAESSR is looking for a special home for Scooby. He is very happy in kennels. He is very friendly with the kennel staff and OK with the dog next door to him. However, when homed alongside an elderly female cocker, he bit her twice. Scooby is very possessive with items that he picks up and insists on raiding the kitchen bin. We are looking for someone who can give him an active rural outdoor life with an outdoor kennel to use if necessary.


Izzy is about 7 or 8 years old and is a liver & white springer with a docked tail. She has been rescued from a home where cats are the priority. Izzy has a lovely temperament. She is used to cats and she has had puppies the the past. Her teeth are OK and she has had a blood test as she has some fur loss. All is OK and she has been wormed and treated for fleas and has special shampoo for regular baths for the next few weeks. She seems to travel well in the car.


Lucy is a 4 year old liver & white springer. She needs a new home due to a change in family circumstances. Lucy is a brilliant dog but she howls and cries when left home alone. She is used to children. She has lived with a cat and she is good with other dogs. Lucy has lived with the present owner for about 2 years and was rescued from her first home where she had a litter of puppies and was locked in a shed. Lucy pulls a lot on the lead but she is good when off lead. She travels well in the car.



Max is a 3 year old black cocker who is part working type and part show type. He needs a new home due to a change in family circumstances. He is used to the teenaged children that he lives with. He likes to play with other dogs but has not lived with a cat. He likes to play ball but will not always drop it for you to throw again. He can be possessive with a bone or large chew. He pulls on the lead initially but is then better and his recall is good. He is fine when left for an hour or two but he doesn't like travelling in the car but is not sick. He hasn't been on a long journey. He sits on the seat and wears a dog harness.

CAESSR has tried to rehome Max. We are now looking for someone with lots of cocker experience. Max destroys bedding so sleeps in a plastic bed with no blankets. He is brilliant with people and other dogs when out and about but he is a nightmare in the home. He is possessive with shoes and slippers etc. and guards his bed.


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.


Betsy is a 5 year old black working type cocker. She needs a new home as she has started to fight with the other female cocker in the home. Betsy has quite a nervous personality but once she trusts you she is a very loveable dog. Betsy is used to teenaged children. She hasn't lived with a cat. She is quite afraid of other dogs as she was "pinned" down by a large dog when she was a puppy. She will back away or bark at them. Betsy pulls on the lead but her recall is good. She travels well in the car and can be left for short periods.


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. Squiggle can be very protective of his family and of his home. All family members need to take part in his care - giving him food, walks and play. 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.


Tilly is a 4 year old blue roan working type cocker who is possibly part show type. One of her owners is disabled and the other is elderly and they can't give Tilly the time and exercise that she deserves. Tilly is OK with children but tends to keep out of the way of very young ones. She possibly needs to be the only dog in the home. She doesn't like another dog in her space although she is OK with other dogs on walks. She has no cat experience. Tilly is good on and off the lead. She can be left for short periods and travels OK but hasn't had much experience.
