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.


RiverThis cute little guy is River, a 9 month old neutered liver and white male springer.

River is coming to rescue as his current owner cannot give him the attention and exercise he so desperately needs.

He just loves life and everything ! He pulls on the lead, what springer doesn't ? but his recall is pretty good and he will, on most occasions come back to his name and the whistle. River

River is a young dog who needs someone to channel his energy in the right direction so that he can become a fully fledged working type springer.


OscarOscar is a mainly white long, legged, Springer Spaniel who is 14 months old. He has had an unsettled beginning to his life.

Oscar still shows some juvenile behaviour and this is partly due to his past lack of structure and socialisation whilst a young dog. Until now he has been unable to build a bond between owner and other dogs.

Oscar is neutered, micro chipped and fully vaccinated a loving and affectionate personality. He enjoys cuddles and travelling in the car in a crate, he is a bit excited at first but soon settle’s.

At present is staying with one of our trainers and he is interacting with him very well and making positive progress (click to See video).He sometimes lacks concentration and can be easily distracted, although for most of his training he is focused and is enthusiastic. Oscar now walks well on the lead and is exercised off lead with other male dog. Oscar is not at the stage where he can be completely let off lead in an open environment yet training is showing a positive outcome in a secure environment. We do not yet know how Oscar is around, livestock and this will be included in the training programme, at present he will chase Cats and birds. Oscar

Oscar Needs a forever home where there are no cats or children. A home where he can develop into a loyal fun loving springer who loves life. His new family will need to keep on top of his training and be committed to this long term.

Oscar responds very well to women, so ideally a strong but gentle female household would be ideal. However, he is building a good rapport with our male trainer so a man about the house must be prepared stand back and wait until Oscar decides he can work with them.


Buster is a 5 year old neutered male who is vaccinated and microchipped.  Buster

Buster will be arriving with NWESSR shortly from his home as a change in circumstances means Buster is not getting the attention and exercise he needs due to family illness.

Buster, sorry to say, is a thief !

He seems to have made this into a game which needs to be discouraged, he will steal your prized possessions given the opportunity and hide them. He will also guard items he has stolen if he thinks you've found where he has hidden them. This can be rectified by ignoring what it is he has and distracting him away from the item. You should only remove the item from where he has hidden it once he has been distracted elsewhere. Buster may have started doing this for attention and through boredom so long walks and things to do outdoors would be more interesting to Buster than stealing things to hide.

BusterHe's a loveable soul who needs his attention channelling in a different direction.


Brogan is an 8 year old, neutered, springer mix. Brogan

Brogan needs a home where someone is around most of the day and has the time to take him for walks so he can experience the outdoors. Brogan has been somewhat restricted exercise wise as his family are a busy working family.

He pulls on the lead but his recall is said to be reasonable.

Brogan can be a little wary of other dogs initially  as he was attacked a few years ago by another dog. Brogan

He will settle well in a new home that has dog experience and time and love to offer, all the things he is missing out on at the moment.

Brogan is a happy chappy and is waiting for someone who can give him all the above.

Could that be you ?


FudgeFudge is a 7 year old Liver and White neutered male.

Fudge lived with a family but due to his tendency to be over zealous sometimes, the family thought he would be better suited to someone who has a lot of time to spend with him and work on socialising him more with other dogs and people. This should be done gradually once Fudge knows his new owners well enough to trust them.

Fudge has a game that has not been corrected in the past and this is to pinch something while you're not looking and run into the garden expecting you to try and get whatever it is he has. This should be discouraged but if this happens should be ignored and his attention distracted elsewhere with some activity that is more interesting.

Fudge needs an all adult family where he can be taken on long walks and allowed to enjoy the wonderful sights and smells the world can offer.

Are you the home that Fudge so desperately needs ?
