Home Dogs Needing Homes Homes Required
Homes Required

There is never any shortage of Springers looking for new homes. Young, middle-aged, elderly, all are looking for that special someone who will love and care for them.

Young Springers are usually re-homed relatively quickly, but please spare a thought for those Golden Oldies who also deserve recognition for the love and companionship they still have to give. Caring for an elderly dog can be as equally rewarding as caring for a younger dog and not everyone wants a bouncy, rumbustious whirlwind in their lives. Slow and sedate also has its compensations.

Here are just some of the dogs who need special attention and are seeking kind and loving families.

If you wish to adopt one of our Springers, please complete the on-line vetting form.


Mia and Marley

A change in family circumstances brings Mia and Marley to the attention of NWESSR. This bonded pair need to be homed together.

Mia is a black and white female who is 6 years of age and is neutered and microchipped.

Marley is 4 years of age and is liver and white and microchipped.

They both love playing with tennis balls and Marley loves his squeaky toys. They both pull on the lead but both have good recall. They have not lived with cats and can be wary of some other dogs until they get to know them.

This pair need a family home that has the time to exercise them and give playtime freely.


TykeTykeTyke is 16 months of age and is black and white and as you can see by his photo is a handsome chap.

He is used to other dogs and is good both on and off lead although will pull initially, say for the first few miles!

Tyke is a little shy when meeting new people but soon comes round and interacts well.

He loves playing ball and will retrieve but if it is a small furry he catches, he will not readily give that up, so you will need a pocket full of something really tasty to swap!


Meet Ollie, he is 9 years of age.

He is good off the lead and is fair on the lead though like most Springers will pull a little when first going out.

Ollie is affectionate and well behaved for the majority of the time but he can exhibit unwanted behaviour if he doesn't get the exercise Springers need, even at this age he needs to be out and about doing what springers do !

This behaviour can be grumbling, just like a grumpy old man really but if this is ignored and he is given the outdoor action, this should not be a problem.

Ollie loves chasing tennis balls and swimming.

Ollie is patiently waiting for his new home and hopes you will be the ones to offer him a comfy bed, good food and lots of walks and adventures.



Lucky is 20 months old and is vaccinated and microchipped.

He travels well in the car.

Lucky is unsure of other dogs and can go into defensive mode when other dogs are around. This behaviour will need working on and advice to any potential new owner will be given by one of our trainers.

Lucky loves his tennis balls and will retrieve.

 He's a happy dog who just needs some attention and love to make him feel secure in a family home.

Ernie Meet Ernie

Ernie is a special boy who will require a very special, understanding home as Ernie is profoundly deaf.

Ernie is approx. 12 months old and is at present with a trainer who is teaching him hand signals to which he is responding very well. The commands would be passed on to a potential new owner so that the continuity would continue.

A female dog in the house may benefit Ernie as he would continue to learn and follow another dog, in a sense another dog could act as his ears.

Are you the special people that Ernie needs to help him fulfil his potential in a new and loving, forever home ?


MillyMeet Milly, she is a 4 year old liver and white springer who is neutered, microchipped and vaccinated.

She pulls on the lead and her recall is said to be reasonable. Milly loves the car and is a good traveller.

She can be a little possessive over toys and will steal your slippers given the opportunity so we suggest that if you prefer to have a pair of slippers, you keep them out of Milly's sight when you are not wearing them !  

It is possible that Milly would benefit from being the only dog but this is a decision that has yet to be decided.


Buster is a 5 year old Liver and White Male English Springer Spaniel. Who is Fully Vaccinated, Micro chipped and has his own travel passport and Vaccinated against Rabies. Buster has been living in France for a number of years, due to Family circumstances he has found his way to North West English Springer Spaniel rescue (NWESSR)  Buster

Buster has lived with another Springer and they got on very well, Buster is a bit nervous of dogs he does not know but as long as they are friendly he is fine, but will bark at dogs when he is on the lead.

Buster lacks Confidence around Horses and Cows, and we do not know how he would react around sheep so a careful introduction is a must. Buster is an attention seeker and he will steal various things from remote controls, mobile phones and cushions he will hide these in his bed and become possessive over these and regards these as his own, this behaviour we believe is to gain attention form the owner. The way forward with this would be distraction training to help Buster, help and advise would be given to the new owners.


Buster loves to travel in the car and is a bit excited when starting the journey he will wine but quickly settles down. Buster is not used to town or city life and when he has been to these places has found the sounds and sight very unsettling, Buster would love his forever home to be in the country, where he can have lots of walks and attention, become confident in meeting other dogs, learn to play - all of this would improve Busters attention seeking behaviour and his love for a country life style.

Brogan is an 8 year old Liver and White Springer cross, he is neutered and house trained but not fully vaccinated or Micro chipped this will be done before he goes to his forever home.


Brogans home life at the moment is very busy with the addition of a new baby, and the poor lad is no longer allowed into the house during the day, so spends his days outside and at night in the kitchen behind the baby gate.

Brogan is used to older teenagers, but has no experience of younger children. He has no experience of cats, birds or livestock so careful introduction is a must. He is wary of other dogs as was bitten and this has left a negative experience so when he is on the lead he will bark and growl at other dogs at present.

Brogan pulls on the lead and would benefit from some lead training and off lead exercise, his recall is said to be good. Because of the busy life he has now had many opportunities to travel in the car and does get quite excited but this could be corrected with training and plenty of opportunities to travel short distances in the beginning.

. Brogan

 Brogan loves to play football or ball but does have the tendency to tear them up with excitement. He is looking for a forever home, where he can be the only dog, receive more exercise and attention, and able to interact with his new owner, and build a special bond
