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.


A change in working hours brings this bonded pair to rescue to find a new family.

Tiah is 8 years old and is a neutered black and white springer.

She walks well on the lead and comes back when called.

Tiah likes to stay close to you and loves attention. She likes her toys but is not interested in retrieving.

Bruce is an 8 year old liver and white male who lives with Tiah.

He pulls on the lead but is said to have good recall. He travels well in the car.

Bruce likes to play ball. He is an affectionate dog who loves human company.

This bonded pair are used to living with older children


Meet Jazz our very own Springador ! She is a springer/ lab cross and is gorgeous.

Jazz is learning to socialise with other dogs.

She travels well in the car. She is good on the lead and her recall is said to be good.

Jazz is vaccinated and microchipped.

 Jazz is staying in one of our foster homes at the moment as an allergy in her previous family brought her to rescue.

Jasper is a four and a half year old black and white springer who is neutered microchipped and vaccinated.

Illness in the family leaves Jasper needing a new home with someone who can fulfil his needs of exercise and play.

He loves to play with tennis balls although doesn't always retrieve them so it may be handy to have two or three when you're out on your daily jollies !

Jasper is used to other dogs and children but has not lived with a cat


Sam is nearly two and is a black and white springer who is vaccinated and microchipped.

Sam pulls on the lead but his recall is said to be good. Sam will flush out birds wherever they are so no hiding place for these feathered friends.

Recently Sam has been hard mouthing and nipping owners hands and arms but they say this is because he needs more things to occupy his inquisitive mind and although they try, they do have to work and as there are children in the house the time for Sam is limited.

Sam has a tendency to jump up on people which should be discouraged by directing his attention elsewhere. Sam is submissive with other dogs but is friendly.


Maxwell is a three and a half year old liver and white springer who is vaccinated, microchipped and neutered.

He is good with other dogs and cats and is said to be ok around livestock.

Maxwell loves to play fetch and this is the way to win his affection as he can be a little wary of strangers particularly men.

He pulls on the lead but his recall is excellent.

He is a loyal loving dog who needs a new home as a family member is allergic to him.

Poppy is a 7 year old black and white neutered female who is  microchipped and will be fully vaccinated when she leaves us.

Poppy has joined rescue as her owner is poorly and Poppy needs a new forever home. Poppy is good with children, other dogs and also cats, in fact she finds cats a little scary !

She has good recall and after initial pulling to get where she is going, settles well on the lead.

Poppy has a little bald patch on her back, which we will be investigating further with the veterinary surgeon. If treatment is required Poppy will be given by NWESSR and this may need to be carried on until it is cleared.

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
