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.


Hi There, my name is Flag and I am 12 years young and a loveable chap, even if I do say so myself.

I am about to lose the family I have been with since I was a pup as my Dad is now unable to care for me due to a disability and he has to move to a place where I can't go with him. As you can imagine my world is turning upside down, what will become of me? I love my Dad and it will be hard for us to say goodbye as I know he loves me too.

Please could you find a place in your heart and home to look after me in my senior years.

The people at NWESSR say that as I am a 'Golden Oldie' if I need veterinary care, they would kindly help out with any costs. I don't ask for a lot,  just a place where I can curl up at night, have some exercise during the day a couple of good meals and if you have a spare cuddle or two, I certainly wouldn't object, in fact I would be very grateful.

The ladies at the rescue will be more than happy to chat to you about me so I do hope you can make the call.

Thank you.
Smudge is a 3 year old Liver and white springer who is vaccinated, microchipped and neutered.

Smudge can be a little nervous of other dogs as he was attacked when he was a puppy.

As a result of this, the owner has been over protective towards him and he has not really been allowed to do what springers do best which is investigate the outside world.

Smudge loves to play ball but can be possessive of toys so just having tennis balls etc around, would be best.

Smudge is quite a strong dog and does pull on the lead but with patience and chance to run off some energy this should improve.

Smudge came to rescue as his owner's partner was ill and there was no-one to care for Smudge.

Bonjour! My name is Buster and although I have lived in France for several years, my French is rubbish (I was more interested in sampling the cuisine than learning the language!)

I am no newbie to NWESSR – I lived here before being rehomed but my new family had to bring me back through no fault of my own. Don’t get me wrong, the ladies and gents are lovely here but the truth is, I’d love to have my own space to relax in, as I’m five years old now and have made a name for myself as a bit of an attention seeker.


I do like to cause trouble, often stealing the TV remote, mobile phones and cushions to decorate my bed – I know it can get on your nerves but I really only do it for some attention.

I have been fully vaccinated - including rabies, I am micro-chipped and lucky enough to have a travel passport! I do bark at other dogs when I’m out on the lead but that’s just because I’m excited – I used to live with another Springer and that worked well, but I can get nervous around dogs I’m unsure about. If they’re friendly with me I’ll be obliging though!



My ideal forever home would be in the countryside, as I went to town once and didn’t much like it. I get nervous in all the hustle and bustle. I much prefer the country where I can have lots of walks and attention but I do lack confidence around horses and cows, and I’m not so sure about sheep either.

If you think you could give me as much attention as I’d like to give you, please get in touch and come see me!


Tobey is a three year old liver and white springer who loves water and chasing balls. It's best to have two or three balls when out as Tobey likes you to throw one before he gives up the one in his mouth.

Tobey has been in the same home since a puppy and comes to us because his family have a new member who was trying to get him away from a drain and Tobey took a dislike to this as his ball was under the paving slab in the drain and he just wanted the ball back and nobody knew it was there only Tobey. Tobey only caught the finger of the man and knew instantly he shouldn't have done this and was sorry. Tobey

Tobey has grown up around children and is great with them but because of this incident which was very minor, he would be best placed in a household with older children.

He is a friendly boy with no hang ups, he loves his long walk and splashing about in water. Tobey is waiting for you to make the call to offer him a new home.

Tobey does seem to have a thing about hands and something in his past worries him occasionally when being approached. We suggest that if you are approaching him, he knows well in advance that you are coming towards him. If Tobey has a ball, he will drop it when he is ready and you should only pick the ball up once Tobey has another ball or is occupied elsewhere.

Boo is a 6 year old, liver and white female who is microchipped, spayed and vaccinated and will be joining us shortly as her owners will commence fostering children and Boo is not used to small children in the home.

Boo is described as a placid dog who loves her cuddles and would be best suited to a semi retired/retired couple who have the time to give her the attention she deserves.

Boo is said to be good both on and off lead.

She is good with other dogs but has not lived with cats.

A slight back problem means Boo cannot manage stairs so if you are in a bungalow or want the dog to be downstairs then Boo may be the dog for you.


Meet Max....

He is a two and a half year old springer who would need your understanding as he seems to have lost his way a little after a relationship breakdown.

Max, at the moment responds better to male company as the male of the relationship was the person that fed and walked Max.

He is said to be ok with other dogs and children but has no experience of cats or livestock.

Could you be the new owner Max needs to find himself again ?

Dexter is a liver and white four and a half year old male springer.

He is vaccinated and microchipped, good off the lead but does pull a little when on the lead.

Dexter is feeling overwhelmed in his current home as it is a busy household with children between 3 and 6 years and a new addition means Dexter does not get the exercise he deserves.

Dexter travels well in the car and needs an adult only household where he will be afforded the attention he needs.


Jenny is a 14 month old liver and white spayed female who is vaccinated and microchipped.

Jenny requires a very experienced springer home as she can be naughty towards other dogs and needs some training and socialising.

Jenny currently lives with another dog but has recently taken to being dominant over him.

In time Jenny could be a potential star but will need patience and correct handling from someone with experience of the breed.
