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.


JesterJesterJester is a 6 year old Liver and White springer spaniel, he is 1st part vaccinated and will have his 2nd part done while he is with NWESSR, has a rabies vaccination, micro chipped and has a pets passport, Jester is not neutered.

Jester's past is very vague as he was found as a stray in Ireland and could not cope with a kennel environment and was rescued by a colleague and surrendered in to NWESSR.

At present Jester is in short term foster until he finds his special home, he has 3 other Springer’s for company and gets on well with them and has settled in to a home environment very well.

Jester is a gentle soul, and loves nothing better than being with people having walks and love lots of attention, the down side is that if he is left to his own devices he will be destructive and chew electric plug and wires even if they are plugged in. We’re not sure why this is, but with the right owner to give him a routine and stimulation, in time, this would become a thing of the past.

Jester wouldn’t mind living with Chickens as long as they are enclosed, he has shown no interest in them and will wait while you collect the eggs.

Jester is a typical Springer he pulls on the lead, but his recall is good, he enjoys playing Ball and will retrieve but will not drop if there are other dogs about.


MillyMeet Milly, she is a 4 year old liver and white springer who is neutered, microchipped and vaccinated.

She pulls on the lead and her recall is said to be reasonable. Milly loves the car and is a good traveller.

She can be a little possessive over toys and will steal your slippers given the opportunity so we suggest that if you prefer to have a pair of slippers, you keep them out of Milly's sight when you are not wearing them !  

It is possible that Milly would benefit from being the only dog but this is a decision that has yet to be decided.


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 Liver and White Male English Springer Spaniel. Who is Fully Vaccinated, Micro chipped and has his own travel passport and Vaccinated against Rabies. Buster has been living in France for a number of years, due to Family circumstances he has found his way to North West English Springer Spaniel rescue (NWESSR)  Buster

Buster has lived with another Springer and they got on very well, Buster is a bit nervous of dogs he does not know but as long as they are friendly he is fine, but will bark at dogs when he is on the lead.

Buster lacks Confidence around Horses and Cows, and we do not know how he would react around sheep so a careful introduction is a must. Buster is an attention seeker and he will steal various things from remote controls, mobile phones and cushions he will hide these in his bed and become possessive over these and regards these as his own, this behaviour we believe is to gain attention form the owner. The way forward with this would be distraction training to help Buster, help and advise would be given to the new owners.


Buster loves to travel in the car and is a bit excited when starting the journey he will wine but quickly settles down. Buster is not used to town or city life and when he has been to these places has found the sounds and sight very unsettling, Buster would love his forever home to be in the country, where he can have lots of walks and attention, become confident in meeting other dogs, learn to play - all of this would improve Busters attention seeking behaviour and his love for a country life style.

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
