Home Dogs Needing Homes Homes Required
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.


Alfie is a 5 year old liver and white male springer.

He loves to have free running time and his recall is said to be good. He will play ball and retrieve and is good around other dogs.

Alfie is used to children in the home.

Alfie will be joining us shortly as a  change in family circumstances means he is being left alone for long hours.

Harvey is 19 months old and is a liver and white neutered male.

He loves to travel in the car. His exercise includes going to where the water is and waiting for you to throw the ball then he can jump in and retrieve it. Harvey can pull on the lead but is better once he has had a swim followed by a long run.

His recall may need a little work but is improving.

Harvey loves people and is a very friendly little chap.

Harvey's current owner is having to work longer hours which means Harvey is missing out on his usual daily adventures.

Meet Tom, here relaxing in the warm evening sun.

This handsome chap is 11 years of age but is still fit and active.

He is microchipped and vaccinated and will be joining us shortly as his owners are emigrating.

Tom is said to be good with children, cats and dogs in fact he's a good all rounder.

Tom will be available on our foster scheme to someone who will offer this stately gentleman a forever home.

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 ?


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!


Conker is an 18 month old liver and white neutered male who is microchipped and vaccinated.

He loves to travel in the car and play with tennis balls although he will destroy soft toys.

Conker is head shy, we believe something from his past has caused this. Conker can be nervous around men initially, again something from his past, but will settle if the right approached is considered.

Conker is said to be good with other dogs but not so keen on cats. He will pull on the lead but his recall is said to be good.


Meet Ollie, he is 9 years of age.

He is good off the lead and is fair on the lead though like most Springers will pull a little when first going out.

Ollie is affectionate and well behaved for the majority of the time but he can exhibit unwanted behaviour if he doesn't get the exercise Springers need, even at this age he needs to be out and about doing what springers do !

This behaviour can be grumbling, just like a grumpy old man really but if this is ignored and he is given the outdoor action, this should not be a problem.

Ollie loves chasing tennis balls and swimming.

Ollie is patiently waiting for his new home and hopes you will be the ones to offer him a comfy bed, good food and lots of walks and adventures.



Brogan is an 8 year old Liver and White Springer cross, he is neutered and house trained but not fully vaccinated or Micro chipped this will be done before he goes to his forever home.


Brogans home life at the moment is very busy with the addition of a new baby, and the poor lad is no longer allowed into the house during the day, so spends his days outside and at night in the kitchen behind the baby gate.



Brogan is used to older teenagers, but has no experience of younger children. He has no experience of cats, birds or livestock so careful introduction is a must. He is wary of other dogs as was bitten and this has left a negative experience so when he is on the lead he will bark and growl at other dogs at present.


Brogan pulls on the lead and would benefit from some lead training and off lead exercise, his recall is said to be good. Because of the busy life he has now had many opportunities to travel in the car and does get quite excited but this could be corrected with training and plenty of opportunities to travel short distances in the beginning.

. Brogan

 Brogan loves to play football or ball but does have the tendency to tear them up with excitement. He is looking for a forever home, where he can be the only dog, receive more exercise and attention, and able to interact with his new owner, and build a special bond
