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 Bracken and Bramble.

Bracken is liver and white and is 5 years old and is microchipped.

Bramble is black and white and is 8 and a half years old and is microchipped.

This lovely pair of male dogs will be arriving shortly in rescue as the owner is moving and cannot take them with her.

The family has recently split and the dogs now need a new loving home.

Both dogs pull a little on the lead but their recall is said to be very good.

They are both said to be ok with other dogs but have not lived with cats.

They are used to living with older children.


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


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.


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


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.

Jenny is a 14 month old liver and white spayed female who is vaccinated and microchipped.

Jenny requires a very experienced springer home as she can be naughty towards other dogs and needs some training and socialising.

Jenny currently lives with another dog but has recently taken to being dominant over him.

In time Jenny could be a potential star but will need patience and correct handling from someone with experience of the breed.


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 ?


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
