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.


Meet Charlie. Charlie

Charlie is a 3 year old liver and white springer whose world has been turned upside down as his owner is ill and there is no-one in the family that can look after him.

Charlie seems to be a gentle soul who just loves his cuddles and likes to be with you and out and about in the fresh air.

He has not lived with a cat but is said to be ok with other dogs but the information is a little sketchy as we are dealing with a family member and not Charlie's owner.


Could you give Charlie the stability and love he so desperately needs ?


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.


JessJess is a 6 year old liver and white springer female who is spayed, microchipped and vaccinated. Jess is used to other dogs but has not lived with a cat. She pulls on the lead and her recall is said to be reasonable but this could do with a bit of work.

Jess loves to play football and will retrieve. Jess does not like to swim in fact we don't think she can swim so she may not be confident around water.

JessJess's mum has to go into hospital for an operation and will not be able to take Jess back when she returns from hospital hence the reason for Jess arriving with NWESSR.

Jess will be joining NWESSR shortly and her world is about to turn upside down, could you be the stability she will need to make her feel secure again ?


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 ?


BruceBruce is a 2 year old liver and white neutered male. Bruce is ok with other dogs but will not tolerate a cat in the home and will chase cats given the opportunity.

Bruce, because of his zest for life, wants to get where he's going before he's even got there, so consequently he pulls like a chuffing train while on the lead.

Unfortunately his recall is sporadic and almost none existent so both these areas will need  a lot of work, time and patience.Bruce

Bruce loves to play ball and is a very loving dog that craves attention.

He loves nothing more than settling in front of the fire, preferably, on your lap !!


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 ?



This gorgeous little girl is 17 months of age and is liver and white.

Poppy doesn't take kindly to larger female dogs but seems ok with most males.

Poppy is a little possessive of her toys and will try to guard them. She has had a few grumbles so we suggest she has no toys in her new home.

Poppy needs an all adult household and there should be someone at home most of the day in order that she gets the right amount of exercise and has the stimulation a dog of this age needs. Poppy

Poppy loves being out and about enjoying the sights and smells.

Her recall is reasonable but she does tend to pull on the lead which will need some work.


OscarOscar is the most gorgeous liver and white springer boy who is vaccinated and micro-chipped. At just 9 months old his foster family are his 3rd home in the last couple of months. He is mainly white with a liver and white head and a half docked tail; he is quite tall and lanky with long legs.

Oscar originally lived with a family with 4 small children, but unfortunately seems to have not been given any discipline or taught any manners, although he is now learning these in his foster home and is making improvements daily. He is a real ‘live wire’ and loves his exercise, he would benefit from having a larger secure garden to burn off all of his excess energy. He does recall eventually, but sees this as a game and will not return when you want him to, only when he is ready. He originally pulled ‘like a train’ on the lead however; a GenCon is now being used, which makes him far easier to walk and to heel.

He loves to play with his toys and is content trying to get treats out of a Kong!! He is fine travelling in the car and will settle quickly.

OscarIt is believed that Oscar has previously ‘nipped’ a dog at the vets and the hands of two men who tried to stroke him when he was out walking (whilst on the lead). He does seem nervous around men, although we do not know why and he can be over zealous with visitors to the house until he gets to know them.

He is an affectionate boy but has a lot to learn and needs some discipline as well as some 'real world' experience. He is currently living with another male dog in the foster home and has adapted well, however, we think a female companion may be better in helping him to understand his place and accept what daily life throws at him. He would be best suited to an active, experienced spaniel home, where some intense one-to-one training can be given to teach him how to behave correctly.

With the right training and support, Oscar will make a fantastic companion for many years to come. We really want his next home to be his forever home where he can settle into a routine and training regime.
