Hi! I’m SRS Hector, a very handsome 9 month old Springer Spaniel who so far has lived a quiet rural life. I’m a typical boisterous, bouncy, strong spaniel pup, with a lot of learning to do. I’m very affectionate, and will make a great companion.

 

 

In my previous home I was taken to puppy class and have learned how to come and sit. I have a reasonable recall off the lead, although when my nose tends to be close to the ground hunting for all the country smells I don’t always listen when called. My foster mum says I have selective hearing at times!

 

I’m getting better at walking on a short lead with a halti, still wary of traffic, want to be everyone’s friend, human and doggy but getting a bit better at doing what I’m being told. Much is work in progress and will require to be continued in my forever home.

I will chase birds in the garden, I have also chased cats but my foster mum does not let me get too close to them. I have never had contact with children and currently would be too bouncy wanting to be friends that I would knock them off their feet. So no very young children.

 

Unusually I am not really food orientated which makes for an interesting time for training and treats.

I paid a visit to a very nice vet who said I was very fit and healthy with no excess puppy fat and in very good condition. I will need to be neutered after my 1st Birthday.

 

Note: I need a forever home with space to run and play.  An active, rural or semi-rural home would be fabulous with someone at home for most of the day who would continue the training and exercise that I need.
