Forest's CV: Forest is a very friendly and happy 3 year old springer with mountains of energy and is always keen to please. He is very bouncy and lives up to the name of a “springy" springer spaniel! Forest does everything at full warp speed he is very fast and wants to bolt outside as soon as the door is opened. He has made good progress with the command to “wait” but this will need to be further worked on in his new home. He chases birds in the garden and would not be suitable to a home with cats, small furries or caged birds. He is great with other dogs having lived in the company of other dogs all his life. Forest requires a home with another dog that would be happy to play with him and give him company. He is respectful of other dogs and demonstrates good social interaction with them. Forest loves his food and eats it very quickly - he also is an opportunist and will counter surf for anything he can reach! He likes carrots as a treat and takes food from the hand quickly but gently. He enjoys carrying things in his mouth and this could be a dog toy but most often its something he has found like a slipper, flower pot or even an Apple Watch! He releases the item on command in doors without any damage but outdoors he is a little less obliging and is still learning how to play fetch with a tennis ball as he tends to run around with a ball in his mouth instead of giving it back for it to be thrown again. He tends to shred soft toys and will then proceed to eat them so we would not recommend them with him but he enjoys a Kong and has a favourite rubber ring toy he likes to keep in his bed. His recall is excellent in the garden but he tends to run at you rather than to you and this will need further work especially for steadiness. His lead walking has come on greatly using a haltie harness as he had very limited skills on a lead. He has learnt to stop and sit on command on the lead and he really enjoys walks on both road and woodland paths. We suspect he is very prey driven and very likely to chase wildlife. He has always lived in rural setting. He travels well in a car in a crate. Forest sleeps in a crate at night and happily goes in and settles to sleep - he doesn’t make any noise and sleeps for 8 hours. During the day he likes to sleep in either his open crate or on a dog bed. He will jump up to join you on the sofa and really enjoys a cuddle and will sleep happily for several hours. He will sometimes try to get your attention with his paw and likes to be stroked gently. Finally - Forest had quite severe matting of his ears and this required the hair of his ears to be trimmed short. He tolerates very gently grooming of his ears but he is still a little sensitive having his ears touched and will move away if he does want his ears touched. PLEASE DO NOT NOTE INTEREST IN FOREST IF YOU HAVE NOT BEEN HOME-CHECKED OR APPROVED BY EMAIL AFTER COMPLETING OUR APPLICATION PROCESS.

Lucy's CV: Hello my name is Lucy and I am an 18 month old Sprocker, but behave much more like a puppy! I’m a beautiful young lady but I am very nervous and I don’t like loud noises and I get a bit scared with anything new or that I am unsure of. I tend to bark a lot when I get nervous. This can happen when I meet anyone or anything new. You will have to help me work on this I will stop if I am told everything is ok. My foster mums will talk you through how they help me. I’m getting lots of walks meeting lots of people, dogs, bicycles and even horses. I’m not sure about the sea or water but got my feet wet today so I now feel very brave. I travel well in the car either in a crate or attached to a secure fitting as I will jump into the back seat. I settle and sleep well at night in my crate. I enjoy my food, but will help myself to anything that is left unattended. My training is coming on well and I will do anything for a treat. My training will have to be continued once I am adopted so best to have spaniel experience! I have learnt to sit and have been practising my recall, I am getting better at walking on the lead. I practice these things everyday and improve all the time. Did i mention i like to bark! I’m very lovable and enjoy a cuddle and I’m getting use to being touched all over and even allow my tummy to be tickled now. I love playing with my foster sister dog and my toys but at times I get over excited and then I bark a lot!!!! I will need a home where there is another dog for me to play with I am even learning to ignore the cat that I live with. I will come to my new home with a neutering contract and will require to be spayed asap. PLEASE DO NOT EMAIL US OR NOTE INTEREST IN LUCY IF YOU HAVE NOT BEEN HOME-CHECKED OR APPROVED BY EMAIL

Max's CV: Max is a beautiful three-year-old that loves giving kisses and getting hugs. He’s a happy boy that enjoys playing games and hunting for toys and treats. He enjoys been busy He knows lots of tricks and commands like sit, stay and go to bed. He’s very good at following direction but not so good at walking nicely on a lead. We have been working on his pulling when out for walks but he gets very excited to smell everything and investigate every nook and cranny of the world around him. He loves having sticks or balls when he is out but doesn’t like sharing these with other dogs, he can guard them. We have been working on this with him as well. He is very obedient and caring. A perfect dog for a family (with older children who are experienced with living with a dog) or anyone looking for a companion. He would do well with having an active life and even a job as he loves to please. He is happy to be in his own space if you are working and will let you know when he wants/needs attention or to be let outside. Max does have issues with his ears (narrowing of the tunnels) and is on steroids at this time. He has been licking his paws, which the vet has narrowed down to either allergies (from his ears) or as a comfort blanket. All in all, Max is the most perfect Springer. He’s vivacious, happy and has so much love to share. He’s got soulful eyes that you can’t help but be drawn in.
