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.


Albi is a one year old liver and white working type springer.

He is an entire male and has a full tail. He is microchipped and house trained but he is not used to cats nor has he met livestock.

He is ok with other dogs and the families four children but is wary of visiting children and adult strangers until he gets to know them.

This is a very busy household with four children and Albi caught the face of a visiting four year old when he jumped up at her and scratched it.

Albi loves to play ball and will retrieve it and drop it on command or will let you take it from him.

He only gets forty minutes a day exercise and this is clearly not enough hence his boisterous behaviour. A quieter home with no young children and plenty of exercise and mental stimulation will turn this boy into a wonderful family pet.

Jeeves is a 6 year old liver and white show type springer. He is neutered and microchipped.

He is house trained and used to being left up to 4 hrs. He is neither noisy nor destructive.

He is good on the lead and his recall is good. He will chase a squirrel but barely breaks into a trot.

Jeeves is good with other dogs and is a bit of a wimp as he was attacked by the owners other dog and did not retaliate, hence the need for rehoming as she can’t keep them separated as this would not work.

He will drop things on the command ‘dead’ although he is not into balls and doesn't retrieve.

Jeeves has not met young children.


Harvey is a five and a half year old liver & white springer with a tail.

He is house trained, microchipped and is ok with other dogs, cows and horses although he has not met sheep or cats.

He can be left for long periods and is neither noisy nor destructive.

He pulls on the lead but his recall is good, he also travels well in the car.

Harvey loves a ball and will let go of the ball on the command ‘give’.

He has snapped at the owner but was being given mixed messages by her ex-husband and the poor boy doesn't know which way to turn. He is used to teenaged children.


StanStan is a 17 month Liver and white neutered male with a full tail, he needs a new home because it has only just been discovered that after extensive tests that the owners grandchildren are allergic to him.

Stan will answer to sit, stay and come; he will sit and wait to be told he can start eating.

He does pull on the lead but not badly, his recall is fairly good except if he sees another dog with a ball as he will go and try and pinch it, so this needs some work.

Stan is ball mad but apart from this he is a typical springer, he is a working type not show type.


Sam is a 5 year old liver and white springer who is vaccinated. Sam is said to be good with other dogs but has not lived with cats.

Sam is reasonable on the lead and his recall is good unless he is distracted, quite easy for a springer ! Sam is not good around livestock so strict control around sheep etc. is essential.

Sam has lived with older children.

Sam is with us in rescue as his owners were having to leave him for long hours and Sam didn't like this much.

He will need an owner who is home most of the day and has the time to spend taking him off into the wild blue yonder to enjoy the sights and smells the world has to offer an inquisitive, lively springer.

Meg is a 3 year old black and white female springer who is vaccinated and microchipped.

Meg is fine with other dogs and is used to older children. She pulls on the lead but has good recall.

Meg can be a little food aggressive but this can easily be dealt with.

She loves to swim and will play retrieve with a ball for hours, she will drop at your feet for you to throw again.

Meg needs to be with someone who is home most of the day and where she will be taken out and about in the fresh air.

Meg is currently being left for long hours as the owners have to work and they feel that Meg deserves better than this. 

Sam is a neutered Liver and white 9 year old springer who is vaccinated and microchipped.

Sam is a special dog in many ways as he has been through the mill in his life and some issues he had through this experience were only addressed at the later stage in his life.

Sam needs understanding and he will be a faithful companion for the right owner. Sam will not tolerate cats or other furry things that move. He is fine with well balanced dogs but should be the only dog in the home.

Sam will steal food given the opportunity, so the Sunday roast etc, should be guarded at all times and rubbish bins should be kept well out of the way !

Sam loves travelling in the car and likes to play ball but don't expect to get it back any time soon ! His recall is good as long as there are no distractions.

Sam needs understanding and love to help him cope with life after a bad start and lets' be honest, we all need a bit of love and understanding in this world to help us approach life's twists and turns.


Stella is a 5 year old liver and white spayed female who is vaccinated and microchipped.

Stella will be joining us shortly due to her owner passing away recently.

Stella is used to older children. She is wary of other dogs and new people, particularly men, until she gets to know them.

She pulls on the lead which will need some work but her recall is said to be good.

She travels well in the car.

Stella will come to you if she wants a fuss and is not an over cuddly dog.

She will retrieve when playing ball.
