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.



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. CAESSR is looking for a special home for Squiggle. We think he is a "one man or woman dog". Once he trusts that person, he will "protect". He doesn't like another person coming into his home - he will need to be put out of the way. He also doesn't like walking past other people with dogs when he is on the lead. We are told that he is good when off lead. Also that he is good when left home alone for short periods and that he travels well in the car. We are looking for an experienced person (or couple) who are looking for a project! He is a lovely dog.


Buster is a 7 1/2 year old liver & white springer. His owner has been diagnosed with a chronic illness and can't give Buster the exercise that he needs. Buster is used to older children but has no cat experience. He has not lived with another dog and tends to ignore other dogs when out on walks. He was attacked by another dog when he was 2 years old. If a dog approaches him when out walking he has learned to sit by his owner until the owner of the other dog gets it under control. Buster really loves his ball and will guard it from other dogs. He is good on and off the lead. He doesn't like being left home alone but can be left for an hour or so and he hasn't had much experience of travelling.

Maisie is an 8 year old Black show type Cocker whose owner has sadly passed away. His wife cannot cope as Maisie suffers with separation anxiety when left home alone. She chews things and has accidents. She is used to children and has no experience of cats. She is OK with other dogs but can be wary of large dogs. She is good on and off the lead and travels well in the car.


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.




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.




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.
