MEET OUR DOGS

IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING COVID-19
 

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
 

During the current national crisis, Springer Rescue for Scotland has made the difficult decision to suspend the adoption of our dogs with new forever homes. This is because it would breach the government restrictions on ‘necessary’ travel and social contact for both you and your family and for our volunteers. Rest assured that all our dogs will remain safely with our foster carers until we are able to resume the rehoming process. So please do continue to check out our dogs below if you are still looking.

 

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

During the current national crisis, Springer Rescue for Scotland has made the difficult decision to cease registering potential new forever homes for our dogs. This is because the registration process requires one of our volunteers to visit you and your family at home. This goes against the current government advice regarding social distancing and puts you and your family and our volunteer at risk. We are very sorry for the inconvenience and we will resume registrations and home-checks as soon as possible.
 

 

 

 

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.

Sky's CV: Hi , everybody my name is Sky and I was 5 years old in December. I presently live with my foster mum and her two dogs, I am fine with dogs I know however I am a bit wary of strange dogs, my foster mum distracts me when I meet a strange dog and this works well. I am very lovable and good natured with lovely manners. My recall is very good and I only pull slightly on the lead when I am excited at going for a walk. I travel well in the car either in the boot or the back seat. I don’t have separation anxiety and can be left for a few hours. At night I have the run of the house except for my foster mums bedroom, I would love to lie beside her but boo - hoo I’m not allowed so I just need to accept that. I am quiet in the house though will let my presence be known if someone comes to the door. I am very friendly with people and love when I get attention. I do have a slight heart murmur and the vet said there is no need to restrict my exercise as it is only slight. Due to past circumstances I am overweight but pleased to say I have lost weight due to plenty of exercise. I am looking for a forever home with someone who will give me lots of love and cuddles and continue my weight loss program. If this is you please get in touch.

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.

Henry's CV: Henry is a very handsome 5 year old Labrador cross Sprocker. This boy is an absolute dream. He’s friendly, happy and loves to play with toys. Henry loves adults, children, dogs and has met (and enjoyed the company of) cats too whilst in foster with us. He has encountered and played with lots of dogs whilst with us and has got on brilliantly with every single one. He knows sit, lie down, paw and has learned to wait at doors when entering and exiting the house and the car. He travels very calmly and comfortably in the car. Henry loves to play with toys and treat puzzles but will happily give them up if you take it off him and say Thank You - he’s just so sweet!! He really enjoys playing fetch with a ball...think he would do it all day! He sometimes does a bit of surfing...counter surfing, to see what treats can be found on the kitchen counter - but he knows “down” and always comes down when asked. He really enjoys company so will sometimes have a little cry initially when left on his own. In foster he has slept in a crate but was previously used to sleeping in his owners bed. He can pull quite strongly on the lead but he’s a very clever boy who listens well and is always eager to please, his walking has already improved loads in just one week. His new family would need to continue this training. His recall was great when we practiced in a large enclosed area. Henry is comfortable meeting new dogs and people out on walks and visitors to the house whilst he’s been in foster. He can sometimes give a wee bark if he’s startled or wound up but a calming cuddle sorts him out immediately. Henry would suit an active family who are home for most of the day. He would make an excellent buddy for hill walking or a Canicross partner and/or agility dog. He is a super clever boy who is always smiling and loves attention - he’s an absolute star! If Henry's is the dog for you please get in touch. NOTE - if you are home-checked use the email below to note your interest.

Bella Key Information
SRS Name: Bella
Ref No: 29001326
Location: Borders: Selkirkshire
Breed: English Springer Spaniel
Age: 6 Years, 6 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 a very active girl. She adores her long walks in the woods and over the hills. 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! Whilst in foster, Bella has displayed very stiff joints and limping. After xrays, she has been diagnosed with hip dysplasia in one hip and the beginning of arthritis on one wrist. She has been on Yumove and medical pain relief for a few weeks now and her movement has improved. Bella also takes a fibre supplement daily to help an anal gland issue. With all this, she is still incredibly active and very happy out on walks, so there’s no reason why she can’t carry on having an active and happy life, with the help of pain management. When Bella arrived, she pulled like a train on the lead, but since removing the harness and using a slip lead with it around her nose, 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! 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 in her crate 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. NOTE - if you are home-checked use the email below to note your interest.

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.
