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.


Ruby is a 15 week old liver and white springer who is vaccinated and microchipped.

She is a typical lively, boisterous young girl who requires more attention than her owner could give her having recently had a baby. Ruby is now in the care of a foster home with NWESSR.

Ruby is learning to socialise with other dogs as there are three adult springers in the foster home. It has to be said that she does try the patience of the other dogs, on occasion, as Ruby just wants to play !


I'm Special..........  My name is Ben and I am a 9 and a half year old liver and white springer spaniel and I am neutered, microchipped and vaccinated.

Why am I special ?

Well, I have served my country for 9 years as a police sniffer dog. When it was time for me to retire, my handler found me a lovely home with my current owner. Unfortunately my owner now has to move and the new landlord does not accept dogs.

As you can imagine the bottom is falling out of my world and I need someone to love me in my Golden Years. I am fit and active and I walk quite well on my special lead. My recall is good although sometimes I choose to ignore being called back but only if I have something to investigate further.

I love travelling in the car and I will play ball until you are tired or if I think it's time we do something else. You can cuddle me when I ask or when you feel the need to have the contact that man and dog openly share.

I'm not keen on other dogs that want to pester me but I am learning to be more tolerant but this will take a little time.

I do have to take a tablet each day but it keeps the problem under control, you'll have to ask what the tablet is for because unfortunately, I can't read !

In my Golden Years I need someone who needs me close and doesn't leave me for hours and hours.

Please can you give this ageing soldier, well ex police dog, a comfortable, loving home to live out the rest of my days?

I will serve you well.    Love Ben x


Lawson is a 3 year old Black and White springer who is neutered, vaccinated and microchipped.

Lawson will chase cats and birds but is said to be good with other dogs.

He craves attention so should be the only dog in the household as he is more a people dog and does not like the competition of other dogs in the home. He travels well in the car.

Given the opportunity, Lawson will steal your freshly laundered socks and has been known to steal even the sweaty ones !!

Anyone wishing to offer Lawson a home would need to be aware that he has a strong dislike for German Shepherd dogs so if out on a walk, if you see a GSD it would be best to walk in the opposite direction.

Lawson has been passed from pillar to post and he now needs stability in his life.

Floyd is 6 years of age and is a liver and white springer who is vaccinated and microchipped.

Floyd is good with children and likes to play ball with everyone.

Floyd will be joining us shortly as his owner is returning to the Navy. This is a hard decision to be made but the owner feels it is the right one for Floyd's welfare.

Floyd is a loving dog who loves his walks and enjoys the company of humans.

Could you be Floyds new family?


Patch is a 19 month old black and white male springer who is vaccinated and microchipped.

Patch will be joining us shortly as unfortunately one of the children in the home has developed an allergy to Patch and re-homing has been the only suggestion.

Patch, as most springers, is not too good on the lead but his recall is reasonable as long as there aren't too many distractions such as pheasants and livestock.

Patch travels well in the car and likes to play ball but prefers to be out and about enjoying the outdoors, nose to the ground and running like the wind !


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.
