DOGS SEEKING NEW HOMES

There are lots of things to consider when adopting a dog .. please take five moments to read the information on the following link.

IMPORTANT
PLEASE READ BEFORE CONTACTING US
  • We will consider homes out of our area, however you will be required to travel to kennels/foster home to visit the dog and once you have taken the dog, if for any reason it doesn't work out, you will need to bring the dog back to us.

  • Please consider that there will be an adoption donation associated with giving this dog a home. As much as we would like not to need to do this we cannot afford it. Helping Springers does not come cheap and taking into account kenneling and veterinary it costs us an average of around £360 for each dog we help. Obviously we don't expect donations of anywhere near that amount but we do need donations to enable us to continue to operate. This donation should be made at the time of taking the dog. We also expect anyone coming to collect a dog to bring with them a dog tag giving details of the dogs new address and a contact telephone number. 

  • Before calling please ensure you have fully read all the information relating to the dog you are interested in, it is no good contacting us regarding a dog that is not good with other dogs if you already have one or one that can't be homed with children if you have them (you would be surprised how many people do just that)

  • Please also note that you cannot meet the dogs without an appointment. The kennel staff are NOT permitted to show you the dogs.

  • Please take a look at our dogs looking for homes and contact us if you feel any of them would fit into your family

  • IF AFTER THINKING ABOUT ALL OF THE ABOVE YOU ARE STILL INTERESTED IN GIVING A SPRINGER A SECOND CHANCE IN LIFE, PLEASE COMPLETE AND RETURN AN APPLICATION FORM USING THE LINKS BELOW

Please note the PDF document is for downloading a printing.

JINX

***RESERVED***

 

The lovely Jinx is 5 years old and has come into rescue as his owners circumstances mean she cannot give him the time and exercise he needs.  He is a happy friendly boy who is good with dogs and people alike.  He has lived with a small child and was very good with him, however he was also very protective of him and would sometimes growl if people approached him, for this reason we think he would be better in and adult only home (visiting children fine).  He loves his walks, does pull on the lead but is reasonably good off it.  He is used to being left alone without issue but we are looking for a home where he will have someone with him a lot of the time.

BENJI & BRODIE

Benji & Brodie are 9 & 10 years old but don't be fooled into thinking they are looking for a slow steady retirement home, they are still full of life and enjoy their walks.  Their owner has tried his best to keep them but the change in his circumstances means he couldn't give them the care they deserve.  They are very similar as although not the same age they do have the same mother.  They are typical happy friendly spaniels, both pull on the lead to a certain extend and Benji's recall can apparently sometimes leave a little to be desired.  They have had some contact with young children without issue and whilst with us have been good with all the humans and dogs they have met.  They will be looking for a home together with someone who has the time to give them the attention they deserve.   

BOSUN

Bosun is a gorgeous 9 almost 10 year old boy who has come into rescue as his owners live in a flat and he was barking when other residents coming home and making a noise in the early hours.  In kennels he hasn't made a sound although he does bark when we are out and he wants a ball.  He is a big lad who needs to lose quite a bit of weight (we estimate a good 8kg to start with) and he is very strong on a lead (helped by all the excess weight).  He is however very good off the lead and loves to play with a ball (although must be a solid ball as he has previous for eating tennis balls), he is quite active so with a good diet and exercise the weight should start to come off.  He has been good with all our other dogs and seems to enjoy walking with them.  He is not used to children, out and about he will just ignore them but in the home he is quite nervous of them so we will be looking for an adult only home without visiting children.  He has a full pet passport as he has travelled regularly for holidays and is used to being left for 2-3 hours at a time without issue.  He was a little grumpy with us a couple of times when he first came in and we were wanting him to come out of his bed, he has been absolutely fine since but if he is unsure when he goes to a new home he may do it again so he needs an owner who could deal with this by giving him encouragement rather than forcing him to do something he is worried about.

SAM

Sam is a delightful 5 year old boy who although originally from overseas has been in the UK since late 2015, sadly despite homechecks etc he found himself in a home with someone unable to give him the time and training he needed and it appears he spent a lot of time in a crate with minimal walks.  Like a number of the dogs we have at the moment he came to us after he had nipped someone when he found himself in a stressful situation, he nipped a neighbour who had never seen him before, which we think speaks volumes about how often he got out.  

He mixes well with all the other dogs in rescue and loves playing off lead with them, he does bark when he sees strange dogs and with him being a big lad can look a bit intimidating but he is in fact a bit of a wimp and the sight of him running across the beach terrified of two little chihuahuas will stay with us forever - LOL

He will need further training in all areas, he will sit on command and has good recall but other than that has had no real training, we are currently taking him to training classes which are going well.  He is strong on the lead but not unmanageable and will walk nicely if you keep being firm with him.  We will provide the services of a dog listener behaviourist to help with his training.

He can be a little reactive in some situations that he hasn't been used to ( he doesn't like joggers and cyclists for example) but gets better all the time so in a home where someone could work on this we are sure that he would very quickly get used to them.  He is a very loyal boy and loves who he considers to be his family, everyone in rescue absolutely loves him and find it hard to believe that there isn't a home out there just waiting for him.  

He is looking for a home that this time will prove to be his last, with someone who is looking for a dog to be part of their family and not stuck in a crate in the corner.  He is a playful boy so maybe a doggie friend to play with would be good for him.

You can see a little more of Sam on these videos.  You can't miss him, he's the big lad trying to keep up with the others

BUDDY (permanent resident)

DOB: 12/12/2011

Vaccinated, Microchipped and Neutered

****We have attempted to rehome Buddy on a number of occasions and sadly he has bitten in every home. Because of this we do not feel that we can rehome him again. In kennels Buddy is a model dog. He loves his walks and is a favourite with the dog walkers as he is so good off the lead and great with other dogs. He gets plenty of good quality exercise and we believe that Buddy is happy with his life and army of fans. Even though he isnt looking for a home we will continue to update you on how he is doing with videos and photos *****

Buddy was handed into a general rescue following the death of the man of the house, the rescue tried to rehoming but when that failed asked us to help.

Buddy had lived with an elderly couple and even prior to the gentleman dying he was not really getting what he really needed. Buddy is a really lovely dog in kennels, he is quiet and clean and we have had no issues at all however Buddy has had 5 homes now and in all has shown aggression and bitten

First impressions of Buddy are that he looks to be a happy, well socialised, confident dog, he pulls a bit on the lead, is good on the lead and good with people and other dogs. However if you look more closely you will see glimpses of a more nervous side and we wonder if this has some link to the instances when he has shown aggression in the home. He sometimes looks as if he is worried about what you are going to ask of him, if something touches him that he is not expecting he jumps and although friendly with dogs he knows he comes close when you pass a dog he doesn't. He has shown no aggression being handled or groomed by us or at the vets.

Our two permanent residents Buddy and Mutley are the best of friends and a pair of clowns, they make us smile every day.  Check out this video of them having fun with each other and a couple of the other rescue dogs.

MUTLEY - Permanent Resident

DOB: 02/08/2009
Vaccinated, Microchipped and Neutered

Mutley is a complex character and  we have decided, after weeks of assessment that we cant rehome him, however he is perfectly happy in kennels and loves our other permanent resident Buddy so he will continue to reside with us.

 

He is great with other dogs and lovely when out and about but will growl (quite aggressively) if asked to do something he doesn't want to do, for example get in or out of the car or go in another room etc. 

He is also very aggressive at both the vets and the groomers, needing to sedated for both.    

 

His previous family love him very much and could manage him if it were just the two of them, but with children and an au pair in the house managing his issues had become too difficult and they were turned down by a number of rescues because of Mutley's issues.

Mutley is very popular with all of our dog walkers and  loves his walks and his ball, closely followed by his love for water. He is very happy sharing his kennel with Buddy and enjoying daily walks with his many fans.

SAMMY

We are really sorry but given the current crisis that has hit the country we need to ensure our foster carer is kept safe and able to look after all the dogs in her care, for this reason visits etc to Sammy will not currently be able to happen.  For this reason we are suspending applications in relation to Sammy at this time.  We will update the website when we can accept applications again, thank you for your support.

 

This gorgeous boy is Sammy is 18 months old and full of life, he is a very nervous boy,  so much so that It is very unlikely that on coming to meet him that he will come anywhere near you.   Once he gets to know you he is very loving but will need time to get to know his new family on his own terms.

 

He will need continued training in all aspects, lead walking, recall etc but the main thing he will need help with is housetraining.  Before going to live with his foster carer he had always lived in a kennel and even though he is has now lived in a house for a few months he is still struggling with his house training.  As he never has an accident when someone is with him and can go through the night without issue (he sleeps in his foster owners bedroom) we now think this is more to do with separation anxiety than actual house training so we are looking for a home with him with someone who is at home the majority of the time and has the time and patience to work on this issue with him.

He is playful with other dogs and happy to mix with them so we will be looking for  a home for him with another dog which could help give him confidence and also help show him how to behave.  Once his nervousness and housetraining has been overcome we are sure he will make an extremely loyal addition to any family.

Sammy is currently in a foster home in East Yorkshire, given his nervousness you would need to be happy to visit him more than once before giving him a home. 

BUSTER, POLLY & POPPY

We are really sorry but given the current crisis that has hit the country we need to ensure our foster carer is kept safe and able to look after all the dogs in her care, for this reason visits etc to this lovely trio will not currently be able to happen.  For this reason we are suspending applications in relation to them at this time.  We will update the website when we can accept applications again, thank you for your support.

 

Yes we know that rehoming three dogs together is a huge huge ask but these are 10 year old siblings that have just lost both their doggie dad and human dad plus their home.  So if at all possible we would like to keep them together. 

They were much loved dogs but towards the end of their lives their owner wasn't able to care for them as well as he used to so they have a few veterinary things we are working through, nothing serious just vaccinations, neutering (although girls currently in season so spaying will have to wait until vet happy to do it), slight skin irritation and issues with their anal glands.  Hopefully this will all be sorted out before they go to a new home but if not we will cover any veterinary costs relating to it.  Buster and Poppy both need to lose quite a few kilos to get them to a healthier weight.  Buster also has a cough from a previous injury, it does not need any treatment but will always be there, the vet did say however that it may improve a little when he loses his weight.

As their previous owner sadly died we don't have a lot of history on them but we are told they were adored by him and he spent all his time with them.  When he was fitter he used to work Buster a little but the girls were pets.  We have found them to be friendly and happy dogs with both humans and dogs alike, they are a little unpredictable on a lead as their owner never used them so a little work will be required on this but all in all they are reasonable well behaved dogs and we are sure that if someone has a heart big enough to take on these three they will find they have three lovely loyal dogs.

REX

We are really sorry but given the current crisis that has hit the country we need to ensure our foster carer is kept safe and able to look after all the dogs in her care, for this reason visits etc to Rex will not currently be able to happen.  For this reason we are suspending applications in relation to Rex at this time.  We will update the website when we can accept applications again, thank you for your support.

This gorgeous boy is Rex, he is 18 months old and full of life, he is a slightly nervous boy so will need time to get to know a new family before he will be fully relaxed.  Before going to live with his foster carer he had always lived in a kennel but has took to house training very well and has only had the occasional accident.  He does however suffer from separation anxiety and if left alone he will chew and eat whatever he has access to,  so we are looking for a home with him with someone who is at home the majority of the time and has the time and patience to work on this issue with him.

He is playful with other dogs and happy to mix with them so we will be looking for  a home for him with another dog which could help give him confidence and hopefully also help him with his separation anxiety. He will need continued training in all aspects, lead walking, recall etc but the main thing he needs is stability and company.

Rex is currently in a foster home in East Yorkshire, you would need to be happy to visit him here maybe more than once before giving him a home.
