MEET OUR DOGS

IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING COVID-19 UPDATED 1st JUNE 2020
 

With the recent loosening on lockdown restrictions, SRS will be introducing a phased return to limited activities under defined conditions.

OPTION 1: If you have already registered with us by filling in our application form AND you have been visited by one of our volunteers to be home-checked
 

EFFECTIVE JUNE 1st

  1. Rehoming dogs currently in foster will restart.

  2. Dog transport and rehoming activities will adhere to SRS guidelines to minimise risk to SRS volunteers and new forever home families.

 

OPTION 2: If you have NOT REGISTERED with us by filling in our application form

 

COMING SOON

  1. The charity will be open to new applications but processing may be slower due to current lockdown guidelines. People may also be asked for more information and even home videos where required.

  2. Assessment and intake of new dogs will restart. Dogs will be taken in by the charity on a case by case basis within the current restrictions. New SRS guidelines for virtual dog assessment and virtual homechecks will be applied.

 

The lockdown also means we are keeping dogs for longer in foster or in some cases kennels, which is adding to our costs. And of course, we are unable to do our usual fundraising at fairs and dog events.

 

You can help us by making a donation. Click the button below to see how you can help - 

 

 

 

 

If you have already registered with us  to adopt a dog and you have been homechecked and you see a dog on this page that you would like to know more about, please click the image, or the link below the dog's biography, and fill in the enquiry form.

Sophie's CV: Sophie is a sweet 9 year old girl who is looking for a quiet home as she can become stressed and will take herself off to another room if there is too much going on around her. When on-lead Sophie walks well with a headcollar and when off-lead she happily stays close and will always return for a ball. She enjoys playing with a ball but as she has had two cruciate operations and has arthritis it is advised that ball play is restricted. Sophie has been used to sleeping on the couch and bed and because she is nervous it would be unfair to her to re-home her in a situation where she would be unable to be on the furniture. She will resource guard dish towels when stressed or given the opportunity to steal. Sophie is very quiet and rarely reacts to noise around the house and can be left on her own for a few hours. She does not travel well, has been sick in the car and salivates heavily. Sophie is an affectionate lady who deserves a quiet retirement home where she can relax. PLEASE NOTE - if you are home-checked use the email below to note your interest. If you are not home-checked yet, please complete an online application found on our website.

Fudge's CV: My name is Fudge and I’m 4 years old. My foster mums neighbour has named me the “muckle eejit” and that’s quite accurate! I live life and 100 mph so I need an active home. I have had a human who has spent a lot of time teaching me to be a polite wee man so I can walk on a lead nicely and my recall is great. I am coping well with a very busy foster home and have taken everything in my stride. I can be quite a chatty man if I’m unsure of what’s going on. I really really love people and I want to be with you all the time. I don’t like being left on my own but I have already learned how to settle and I now trust that people will return!! I love the car as it means I’m going somewhere with you. I like my foster brothers and sisters and I especially like the mini humans that live here! I need a family that will understand how much I need my humans and give me time to settle. My foster mum says I’m a wee cracker. If I'm the boy for you please get in touch. NOTE - if you are home-checked use the email below to note your interest. If you are not home-checked yet, please complete an online application found on our website.

Bella Key Information
SRS Name: Bella
Ref No: 29001326
Location: Borders: Selkirkshire
Breed: English Springer Spaniel
Age: 6 Years, 8 Months ESTIMATE

Bella 's CV: Bella is a very sweet and loving girl. She always looks to her human for reassurance and cuddles! She is an active girl and adores her long walks in the woods and over the hills. When home, she loves to sleep and chill out! It took Bella a few days to warm to us (a 2 adult and 1 dog household), but when she did, she showed us how loving, affectionate and calm she really is. She also gets on well with other dogs. Bella will need a hands-off approach for her first few days in her new home. She will come to you when she’s ready and she will improve by the bucket load day by day! Since in foster, Bella has been diagnosed with hip dysplasia in one hip and the beginning of arthritis on one wrist. She has been on Yumove for a few months now and her movement has improved, Springer Rescue Scotland will provide ongoing support with these issues. Bella has an anal gland issue and is having extra fibre in her meals to help combat this. She is still very active and happy out on walks, so there’s no reason why she can’t carry on having an active and happy life. When Bella arrived, she pulled like a train on the lead, but since removing the harness and using a slip lead to create a figure of 8 lead, she’s improving greatly! Her recall is fantastic. She rarely roams too far, but if she does, she comes straight back to her name. It doesn’t look like Bella has been taught to leave things. She especially picks things up when she’s excited! She is quite hard-mouthed and will need gentle, patient training to leave things – like giant stones on walks! We are working on “drop it” with her. She is extremely fetch obsessed and we are not encouraging ball play in her foster home. She gets a squeaky ball or toy as a reward every now and then. Bella has become very used to sleeping with our resident dog in their separate room. She happily sleeps throughout the night and can be left for short periods. She can be a bit of a doorbell and can be vocal towards strangers. This can all be improved through training though, as she responds to positive training methods very well. She travels well in the car and is very vocal and excited when she realises we’re home! Bella is an incredibly loving, cuddly and affectionate girl. She fast became my shadow and a lovely one at that. Bella is a wonderful companion and is now ready to find her forever home. If you think Bella is the girl for you, please get in touch.

Charlie's CV: CV: Hi, I’m Charlie and I am a 5-year old liver and white English Springer Spaniel. I am a happy, energetic boy who loves to have fun running on the beach or in the park especially if you throw a ball for me to chase and I will bring it back to you. My foster dad says I am a handsome lad and of course, I have to agree with him. I love to say hello to dogs and people and am happy to be friends with everyone. Occasionally, I can be a little timid with new people and situations, but I am fine after some gentle reassurance.I can pull a little on the lead, so I have got used to a Halti which stops this. However, my foster dad says I am intelligent and with some continuing training I will learn to walk nicely with just a collar on. When off the lead I have good re-call and will always return back to you, especially if there is the chance of a wee tasty treat upon my return. Following a good run around, I am happily to cuddle up next to youon the sofa and just chill out. I can happily live with other dogs as I like to be friends, so if you have a doggy brother or sister for me at home, that’s fine with me. If not, don’t worry. It just means more biscuits and cuddles for me. I sleep in my own bed at night and will settle down for a good rest all through the night, so I can recharge myself for the next day’s adventures. I can be left alone in the house for up to 2 hours, but I prefer to be with my human companions as much as possible. I also travel well in a car as it usually means I am off on another adventure somewhere. I have been fully health checked and the vet says I am fit and healthy. My foster dad has been giving me lots of exercise, so I am keeping fit and loving exploring all the new places he has taken me too. If you like the sound of me and you think I could become a part of your home, please let the nice people at SRS know by registering your interest in me. Hope to see you soon, Charlie x NOTE - if you are home-checked use the email below to note your interest. If you are not home-checked yet, please complete an online application found on our website.

Good with Livestock: Yes
Status: Reserved
Brodie's CV: This is Brodie, a very sweet natured 1 year old working cocker spaniel. Currently in foster with three other dogs, he gets on really well with them although is a bit too bouncy for the older dog in the house, he would do well with a dog of a similar size or larger or as an only dog. Brodie will require ongoing training with his manners, he will jump at food and work surfaces, he pulls on the lead (he has tried Cani Cross and LOVED IT), his recall is good, but mind those shins when he comes at you and forgets the brakes! He loves to deconstruct toys, he will need lots of appropriate chews in his new home. He does have separation anxiety, this is something that his foster family is working on, and we will provide ongoing support with but it will not be fixed overnight, as such we are looking for an experienced home where there is someone is at home for the majority of the day. He is responding very well to positive training methods, these will have to continue in his new home. Due to current circumstances, Brodie will be rehomed on a neutering contract, meaning he must be neutered as soon as possible and we will pay for the procedure, also while we welcome interest for Brodie now we will be unable to invite a family to meet him until restrictions are lifted. If you have been homechecked by us and can offer Brodie an experienced and patient home where he can continue to learn and thrive, please email us on the link below. At this time we are unable to accept new applications, our website and Facebook pages will be kept up to date as this changes.

She’s very gentle when taking her treats she’s loves everyone she meets when out in her walk whether human or canine.

Rolo Key Information
SRS Name: Rolo
Ref No: 10001328
Location: Central: Angus
Breed: Springer/Cocker Cross
Age: 1 Years, 6 Months ESTIMATE
Gender: Neutered Male
Good with Children: Older

Good with Livestock: Yes

Rolo's CV: Hello. My name is Rolo. I am an 18 month old sprocker – that's a cross between a springer and a cocker spaniel. I am a beautiful tri-colour, but mainly dark brown. I am young, enthusiastic and keen to please. Previously I had little training, but since coming to my foster home I am learning manners. I still like to see what is on the table if I get the chance, but so far I haven't stolen anything. I am learning about rules at the door, but as it means getting out to play I can be a bit forgetful. I really love birds and since the swallows came I am having even more fun trying to catch them and as they swoop low, I'm sure I will get one one day. In fact I am so enthusiastic about birds I yelp and jump around when I see them and am so busy chasing that I don't hear me being called back. I really don't like my nose-band halter but can walk ok on my harness, particularly on the way back from my walk. Since “lockdown” I haven't been on a lead much so would need someone who is prepared to keep reminding me about it. I currently live on a little farm and I can say for sure I don't like goats so I stay away from them or run very fast past them, but apart from horses, which are too big, I haven't met other animals. I have chased the neighbour's cat but I'm not that bothered about it. By evening when everyone is settled, I love cuddling up on the sofa with my foster parents or lying on the floor with my foster brother and sister. Since being in my foster home, I have learned to eat lots of different fruit and vegetables, but cheese is definitely my favourite. At bedtime I sleep in my crate in my foster parent's room and I go happily in to it and sleep all night – ready to start a new day! I would really love to go somewhere there is another dog – not too young and definitely not too old as I want to play. I think I'd get used to having a cat around. I am ok with children, but older ones as I can be quite boisterous. I have never shown any aggressive behaviour towards other dogs or people I have met on my walks, but the same can't be said for rabbits! My recall isn't good so a large secure area is almost essential so that I can run and chase birds without the fear of going too far away, and my family will need to help me learn what this recall is. Could you give me the home I'd love? While we welcome interest for Rolo now we will be unable to invite a family to meet him until restrictions are lifted. If you have been home-checked by us and can offer Rolo a home where he can continue to learn and thrive, please email us on the link below. At this time we are unable to accept new applications, our website and Facebook pages will be kept up to date as this changes.

Cello Key Information
SRS Name: Cello

Cello's CV: Hi, I'm Cello an 8 year old working cocker spaniel (although I don't act my age), I am well trained and obedient with very good manners, although I do have a few bad habits, like occasion counter surfing. I thoroughly enjoy exercise of any kind, especially with a ball to chase and retrieve, being allowed to use my nose is important sniffing through the undergrowth is my favourite, water is another love, I have done some Munro bagging in my time. My recall is very good , I walk easily on the lead only pulling if allowed.I don’t enjoy the company of other dogs, especially if they get in my face , I prefer my own space when out and about . Balls and toys I like to carry and don’t really destroy them, I have only destroyed one tennis ball during my time in foster, how good is that! I am a good companion eager to please loving any attention I get, traveling in the car is great, but being typical of my breed, the moment I realise we are arriving at one of my favourite walks I get quite vocal, we can try to improve this but I just get so excited. In the house I love to snooze on the sofa and cuddle into you rather than in my own bed, and at night I sleep in my own bed but given the chance will creep onto your bed for the night with you. Exercise is essential for me as I have a lot of energy, preferably in open spaces, woods and open country where I can use my nose and run as you would expect of my breed. My new forever home would be best in a semi rural setting with a large garden and access to open spaces, where I can get the chance to run, swim and play. I need a home where I am sole dog with no children of primary school age or younger. Can you help me enjoy life to the full. I may take a little longer than usual to settle into my forever home as I have spent quite a bit of time in foster due to this Lockdown business. While we welcome interest for Cello now we will be unable to invite a family to meet her until restrictions are lifted. If you have been home-checked by us and can offer Cello a home, please email us on the link below. At this time we are unable to accept new applications, our website and Facebook pages will be kept up to date as this changes, please only send interest if you have had a home visit carried out already.
