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.


Harvey is a five and a half year old liver & white springer with a tail.

He is house trained, microchipped and is ok with other dogs, cows and horses although he has not met sheep or cats.

He can be left for long periods and is neither noisy nor destructive.

He pulls on the lead but his recall is good, he also travels well in the car.

Harvey loves a ball and will let go of the ball on the command ‘give’.

He has snapped at the owner but was being given mixed messages by her ex-husband and the poor boy doesn't know which way to turn. He is used to teenaged children.


Sam is a 5 year old liver and white springer who is vaccinated. Sam is said to be good with other dogs but has not lived with cats.

Sam is reasonable on the lead and his recall is good unless he is distracted, quite easy for a springer ! Sam is not good around livestock so strict control around sheep etc. is essential.

Sam has lived with older children.

Sam is with us in rescue as his owners were having to leave him for long hours and Sam didn't like this much.

He will need an owner who is home most of the day and has the time to spend taking him off into the wild blue yonder to enjoy the sights and smells the world has to offer an inquisitive, lively springer.

Sam is a neutered Liver and white 9 year old springer who is vaccinated and microchipped.

Sam is a special dog in many ways as he has been through the mill in his life and some issues he had through this experience were only addressed at the later stage in his life.

Sam needs understanding and he will be a faithful companion for the right owner. Sam will not tolerate cats or other furry things that move. He is fine with well balanced dogs but should be the only dog in the home.

Sam will steal food given the opportunity, so the Sunday roast etc, should be guarded at all times and rubbish bins should be kept well out of the way !

Sam loves travelling in the car and likes to play ball but don't expect to get it back any time soon ! His recall is good as long as there are no distractions.

Sam needs understanding and love to help him cope with life after a bad start and lets' be honest, we all need a bit of love and understanding in this world to help us approach life's twists and turns.

Proof that you are never too old to learn


Logan is a liver and white, 5 year old springer who is neutered, vaccinated and microchipped.

Logan is a little set in his ways and can show a dislike to cats, rabbits and some dogs.

He needs a calm, assertive owner who will keep Logan in a calm, submissive state.

Logan avoids eye contact most of the time but not all of the time, so the odd treat works well but is best done in a recall situation.

Time, patience and kind words are what Logan responds best to and will be the key to success.

Logan is with one of our trainers and will need on-going training in his new home.
Mario is a 3 year old liver and white male who is microchipped.


He travels well in the car.

He is good on a halti and his recall is said to be reasonable.

Mario has lived with a cat but will bark at them. He is fine with other dogs.

His current owner's working hours have increased so Mario is 'Home Alone' for too long.


Cooper is a liver and white spayed female and is 6 years old.

Cooper is fine with other dogs as long as she is not pestered by them.

She is good with older children and has lived with cats but will chase cats she sees outside.

Cooper is said to be ok around livestock and birds.

Her recall is excellent and she returns to the whistle. She pulls on the lead if it is short but walks better on a long lead.

Cooper gets excited when travelling. 

Cooper has an allergy to raw and any red meat.


We know very little about Katie as she only arrived with us on the 15th May 2015.

Katie lived with a lady who sadly died and Katie was there for a while before the lady was discovered. Unfortunately no family members are in a position to offer Katie a home.

Katie is Liver and white and about 8 years old. She is overweight. We think she is spayed but this has yet to be confirmed.

Katie just needs a loving home where she will be comfortable and have nice walks daily and make someone a great companion.


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.
