Joe's CV: Hey, I’m Joe a 9 year old Golden Working Cocker. Until recently I lived on the remote West Coast. I miss the peace & quiet so thats why I am looking for a forever rural/and or quiet home. I have good house manners and I love a cuddle. I enjoy 1 to 1 company and prefer if you are about most of the day. I am an anxious boy and noise sensitive which makes me react by barking at any time, but this is because i worry what the noises are. I am not used to loud noises but my foster mum is working with me on this. I sleep on my own bed at nite time but I love to sneak up and sleep with my foster mum given the chance. However if I nap during the day please do not wake me by touching me as I get a fright and may bite you which I wouldn’t mean I am a noisy boy when I am in the car. I whimper away for a good part of the journey. I don’t mind cars or bicycles near the car but will bark at motor bikes until they are passed me. My diet has been changed to kibble twice a day which I enjoy. I occasionally will play with a toy, but I am not really that interested in them however when we go out I get excited and like to carry your shoe or my lead around. I also get the zoomies (which I love) but my foster mum says I bark too much but I just want to tell everyone to watch me running fast I do grumble and tell you if I’m not comfortable doing things, especially grooming my paws and knots on my coat. I can be stubborn but hey thats loveable right! I have been getting plenty of walks on a long line, I don’t pull on it, I enjoy being out walking in quiet areas. When walked on a short lead i can pull out of excitement but will quickly calm down, my foster mum is helping me with this. I should tell you that I get very anxious and can seem aggressive towards other dogs, I am just worried about them, my foster mum is helping me to boost my confidence with other dogs, she will be able to give you lots of advice to help me so its important you listen and follow the advice she gives you. Since coming to my foster mum she has been trying to help me get accustomed to a less rural life with the assistance of SRS’s dog behaviourist, so far I am fine with adults, children are unknown to me and I am very wary of them, especially if on a bike or scooter, I am not comfortable with them near me or touching me. A home with children/dogs/cats is a definite no no for me! My new home requires to be somewhere rural preferably, or somewhere quiet with a large garden, not in a busy populated place due to my reactions to noise. The SRS behaviourist will be accessible to my new family if required however I hope if l get all my wishes for a quiet life then they won’t be needed. PLEASE DO NOT NOTE INTEREST OR EMAIL US REGARDING JOE IF YOU HAVE NOT BEEN HOME-CHECKED OR BEEN APPROVED BY EMAIL AFTER COMPLETING OUR APPLICATION PROCESS. THANK YOU

Puddle's CV: Hi, my name is Puddle and I am a Blue Roan Show Cocker. I am six years old and am very loving. I am house trained. I have two meals, Pedigree Chum mixed with a little kibble, a day & the odd half dentastick........well I like a little treat after my last wee walk & before my bed time I will sleep on my own bed but given half the chance I’d rather be with you on yours!! Sometime I like to wander at night and will sleep on the furniture if allowed. I would prefer to be the only dog in your life as I love lots of attention and will love you very much in return. I enjoy playing with my squeaky toys, i tell them off for being nosier than me!! My foster mum says I’m very good on the lead,I enjoy meeting people especially when they want to make a fuss off me however i am not keen on meeting big dogs, especially black dogs, they scare me so I bark and I get upset, we are working on this but it will need to be continued in my new home. I am trying to be braver like my foster brothers. I love swimming and running through the trees & fields on my long lie. My off lead recall has not been tested. I like the garden, i enjoy pootling about and I love the woods as I love to sniff, sniff, sniff . I also love the car and don’t mind if you have a crate for me in the back. My foster mum says I’m the best dog in the world and gives me lots of cuddles, can i be your best dog?? PLEASE DO NOT NOTE INTEREST IN PUDDLE IF YOU HAVE NOT BEEN APPROVED BY EMAIL AS YOUR INTEREST WILL BE REJECTED. Thank you

Breed: English Springer Spaniel

Wren's CV: Please do not note interest in Wren unless you live within a 10-15 mile radius of Dollar, Clackmannanshire. My name is Wren. I am a six year old English Springer Spaniel. I have some health issues so I need a very special someone to look after me. Somebody who has a genuine love of dogs, understands their needs and has the patience and commitment needed for a dog such as myself. In return I’ll give you lots of love, loyalty, affection, company and fun. I am nearly blind, but still able to see blurry images. My blindness is progressive and I will eventually be totally blind. Potential adopters will have to live close by as I will need to visit with you daily for a few weeks as i will need time to get used to my new home and you. Please don’t move furniture around in my new home as I’ll get confused and anxious.. Once I know where everything is you wouldn’t even know I have a sight problem. I am very frightened of sudden loud noises or quick movements. They freak me out and I run away. Hoovers, hairdryers, kitchen mixers etc scare me and when outdoors busses, lorries, tractors etc are not my friends. My other problem is I have luxating patellas in both knees (wobbly knee caps). Over time my muscles have strengthened in this area but I walk a bit like a duck. When going upstairs I hop like a rabbit but I’m still me, Wren, a very pretty and loving wee spaniel. This condition will cause me arthritis of the knees in the future for which I’ll need medication. There is an operation to help my condition but it is major surgery and the vet does not recommend it especially with my sight problem. I am not in pain. I am a timid wee soul but am friendly to other dogs, people and children when I meet them on my walk. Oh by the way no extra long walks for me because of my knee problem so I’m not the dog for you if you love running, climbing hills etc. On the other hand if you are at home most of the day, enjoy a gentle walk, have a safe enclosed garden for me to potter in and want lots of doggy love and cuddles then I am definitely your special dog. To note interest in Wren you will have to have been approved by email or home checked and live within the required 10-15 mile radius of Dollar. Thank you

Bailey (2)'s CV: Bailey is a 6 year old English Springer Spaniel. Bailey is a quiet gentle boy who loves to sleep on a chair and preferably your bed at night. Bailey is quite nervous when meeting men so I am working on this introducing slowly, he is getting better but he would benefit from a female being his main carer to start with. He would love to live in a house where he can see out of the windows. If he can’t see out of them then he will jump up onto something to have a look out and he is not fussy what he jumps onto! Bailey does counter surf if he gets the chance so better not to leave food out or it’ll be gone! He needs a home where there will be someone about most of the time, he gets quite stressed when he’s left and this is when he jumps up to see out of the windows, hopefully when he gets settled in a new home he will get better but it will be something his new owners will have to work on. He barks at the neighbours if they are in there gardens, I’m also working on this and he is getting better and after the initial barking will stop when told. Bailey does pull on a short lead but walks well on a figure of 8 lead, he will also pull on the long line but he’s getting better. He is very determined if he decides he’s going somewhere and will pull with all his strength to get to wherever he wants to go, but this is getting better. His recall is not good but I think with time he will get better, he gets on well with other dogs, but not cats and he is frightened of livestock but will now walk past sheep. Bailey likes going out in the car, he does need to be restrained in the car, I have him on a harness and seat belt clip, otherwise he will bounce around, he does whine when were going somewhere to walk but is a lot quieter on the way home. Bailey likes to play with a football and sometimes a tennis ball but never bothers any other toys, I am trying to teach him to play more were getting there slowly. Bailey is a lovely boy he likes a cuddle and enjoys being with someone and chilling on a chair or sofa. He loves his walks he will go into water but he doesn’t seem to be too bothered about swimming. Can you offer Bailey the home he deserves? Please do not note interest in Bailey (2) unless you have been home checked or approved by email. Thanks

Bailey (1)'s CV: Hello people of the internet. My name is Bailey. I’m a 3 year old springer girl and yes I am gorgeous. I used to be an only dog, but now I live with 3 foster brothers. I really love the company, and there’s always someone to play with. I really need a dog around my age who will play with me in my new home. I’m a confident and friendly young lady, I like to make new friends, both people and dogs. My foster home have been working with me to improve my basic training and reduce my shadow chasing, my foster mum will keep you right regarding this and there are lovely behaviour ladies who support the rescue too if needed for help. My new home will have to continue working with me to firm up my training, especially my recall, its a bit hit or miss. I don’t walk particularly well on the lead, I walk better with my harness though, I do like to mouth at your hand when you are putting my harness/ lead on but i am easily distracted. I love being outside, running about is my favourite thing to do. I like to chase my brothers and for them to chase me. It’s always great fun! I travel well in the car either in the back seat or in the boot. When my foster family are home I like to snuggle up beside them for a cuddle. I’m very affectionate. I can be left for a few hours at home, I just curl up for a nap. I sleep soundly all night with my brothers for company. I’ve had lots of new experiences in my foster home, I’ve met the cat that lives here - I was very respectful of her as my brothers told me she’s very pointy. I’ve met children and I was very gentle and I really like them. I’ve seen sheep and cows on my walks, they’re not very exciting at all. If you think I’m what’s missing from your family please email my people. Love Bailey-Boo Please do not note interest in Bailey if you have not been home-checked or approved by email
