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.
Neyo and Millie are tri-colour show type cockers who are litter brother and sister. They are just 10 years old and are looking for a new home together. Their owners lives have become very busy and the dogs are being left home alone for very long periods. They are very bored and getting up to mischeif e.g. tearing up the post! Neyo has a bit of arthritis and has Metacam. They are used to children of all ages and they are good with other dogs. Both have good recall but pull a little on the lead. They travel well in the car and are anxious when left.
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.
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.
Zeus is an 11 month old fairly large liver & white springer. He needs a new home as the toddler in the home does not like Zeus. Zeus has to spend time outside or in a different area in the home to the child. He is used to children and is good with other dogs. He has not lived with a cat. He pulls on the lead and his recall has not been trained. He is house trained and understands basic commands and will drop his ball for you to throw. He travels well in the car and can be left just for short periods.
Hawk is just turned 10 years old and is a black working type cocker. His owner now goes away a lot and Hawk needs a new family who can give him the attention that he deserves. Hawk has been a very good gun-dog who needs a retirement home. He is brilliant with the owners young grandchildren. He is good with other dogs but has not lived with a cat. He has always slept in the house so he is house trained. He is good on the lead after an initial reminder to walk to heel. He will normally come back to call or whistle when off lead. However, he now won't return when game scent is in his nostrils - so his working days are over! Hawk 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. 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.
Flora is just 9 years old and she is a chocolate working type cocker. Her owners have recently moved to a smaller home with a very small garden and Flora has not settled. She is becoming less tolerant to very small children and other animals that invade her space especially the young dachsund puppy that she lives with. There are young children in the street and she can be snappy towards them. Flora is looking for a quieter home. She is used to cats. She is a loving dog who is still very active and she enjoys her walks. She pulls a bit on the lead. She has excellent recall. She travels well in the car and can be left just for short periods.
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.
