SPRING RESCUE - LIVING IN THE NEW COVID-19 WORLD

 

We have continued to take in and rehome dogs throughout the pandemic whilst keeping the safety and wellbeing of our dogs and volunteers at the heart of our organisation, this has of course had an impact on how we go about rehoming.

 

OPTION 1

If you have been approved to apply for dogs either by phone call or after a home visit, please continue to note interest as advised. If you have any queries regarding this, please contact your local Area Coordinator HERE.

 

OPTION 2

If you have not yet completed an application to rehome one of our dogs, please read through the application guidance thoroughly and complete our application form and your local Area Coordinator will be in touch to discuss further. You can find the application form HERE.

 

 

The health and wellbeing of our dogs and our volunteers is at the heart of our organisation.

 

PLEASE NOTE: our COVID policies and  guidelines may change without notice to keep in step with government policy, so do please keep checking back to our website.

 

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

Hi everyone, my name is Baxter and I'm a gorgeous boy or at least my foster mum tells me that!

I was 1 year old in December. I am staying with my furry foster sister and brother and play really well with them. I am an energetic boy who loves to walk and swim. I can fetch, sit, and stay but I'm not very good at walking on my lead, in fact I tend to pull. If you say heel I will stop and go to heel but as soon as we start walking I start pulling again. I am working on this and very slowly getting better. 

 

I have human foster sisters who are teenagers and I don't mind the noise they make, I love sitting in their rooms listening to music and playing with my toys. I am friendly to other dogs, when I meet a new dog I am a little cautious but will say hello and have a sniff, if they growl I back right off and carry on my walk. If humans talk to me outside, and they often do to say how lovely I am, I will sit and say hello however if they walk by I just ignore them.

 

I don't mind visitors to the house and have met small and large humans recently, I will sit nicely and not jump up when they arrive. This sometimes gets me a biscuit. I am driven to learn things by reward of food or playing with my ball. My new family will need to continue my training, but I've had a little gundog training and am quite good at recall, although I'm not allowed off-lead while I'm in foster.

 

I sleep in the kitchen and will bark during the night if I need to go out, this isn't every night. I do try to sleep on the human beds but in this house it's not allowed. I eat my kibble twice a day.

 

My needs: I would be fine in a home with older children, with or without another dog, as long as you have time to spend with me and are very fit to give me lots of exercise and lovely walks. You will also need to continue my training.

 

If you have been home-checked or approved by email then please email fife@springerrescuescotland.org with your name and postcode. If you haven't applied yet but think I'm your perfect companion, please complete an application on the website and email letting them know you have just submitted an application, giving your name and postcode.

Name: Max
Ref No: 4001428

Breed: English Springer Spaniel
Age: 2 Years, 3 Months
Gender: Neutered Male
Good with Children: No

 Hi everyone, my name is Max and they tell me I’m a very special lad. I was surrendered to Springer Rescue Scotland by Police Scotland when it was discovered that I had 3 poorly legs, yes, you read that right 3!! I have undergone surgeries during my 8 months in foster care & these were generously funded by Police Scotland but I will require ongoing support which my foster human assures me Springer Rescue are going to provide, aren’t they a fab bunch! I should be able to have a relatively fit and healthy life but my mobility will need to be monitored, my fitness built up slowly and I may have some join issues in later life.

 

Full behavioural support will also be provided. I do have a couple of bad habits, while I do enjoy the company of other dogs I am not good at sharing and can resource guard do I’m going to need a home with no other dogs so that this can be easier managed. Rest assured though, I love a cuddle (and often wash my foster Mum’s face). I need one more surgery before I can go to my forever home, this means I will be ready for adoption in February 2023, but the team here at SRS are keen to start finding me that perfect forever match so that we are all ready to go as soon as I’m able to. I am currently in foster in Inverness, please remember you will need to visit me there on two occasions. As I am so special, they are looking for an extra special home for me, and they have a list of requirements for me. If you think you are a match, please email us and one of the humans will give you additional information and arrange a chat.

 

My needs: adult only, dog free home, experience in behaviour issues and can commit the time to build up fitness, trust and boundaries.

 

If you have been home-checked or approved by email then please email enquiries@springerrescuescotland.org with your name and postcode. If you haven’t applied yet but think I’m your perfect companion, please complete an application on the website and email enquiries@springerrescuescotland.org letting them know you have just submitted an application, giving your name and postcode. Please ONLY contact us if you fit the required criteria.

Name: Bruno
Ref No: 8001453
Location: Central: Clackmannanshire
Breed: Cocker Spaniel
Age: 2 Years, 6 Months ESTIMATE
Gender: Neutered Male
Good with Children: Older
Good with Dogs: Yes
Good with Cats: Untested, please ask
Good with Livestock: Untested, please ask
Status: Available

Hi. My name is Bruno! I am a very cuddly boy who wants to make my humans happy. I am a working cocker who enjoys learning and following commands. I have been learning all sorts of new things in my foster home, especially to settle and rest. I’m a quick learner, but being a youngster can still be a bit naughty and am a perpetual stealer of anything soft or food in the house. I’m working hard on this and my fosters will give you lots of advice, my new home will also have full support from SRS and Think Pawsitive behaviourists.

 

I like routine in my life, routine settles me and has taught me to relax and rest. I am crate trained and go straight to sleep but you might have to bribe me first! I really enjoy going for walks and I am great on a lead and longline and walk at heel when asked, my recall is a work in progress too. I travel in a boot crate, or on the back seat secured with a special seat belt thing. I love watching where we are going and love looking out the window too. I don’t like having my back legs and paws touched, so you will have to gain my trust before I will allow you to touch or dry them. I am super affectionate and love to cuddle with you. I currently have my own dog mat and blanket on the floor in the living room, as I can guard furniture. I will often talk to you when I want cuddles, or if you aren’t giving me attention. I am quick to learn commands but can be stubborn too! I love to play with my rope toy or carry a ball, but I am not driven by them. I would be best suited to an only dog home as I need further focused training. I like meeting other dogs, but I want my own space. I cannot go to a home with young children as I am scared of them and can react out in fear. Teenagers I am ok with but they need to be aware I like my own space which I am really good at taking myself off to if it’s all gets a bit too much.

 

NOTE FROM FOSTER PARENTS: Bruno needs to be the only dog in the home. He is now good with us when doing most things or introducing him to new situations. It is all trust based. He responds better to his foster mum as she spends the most time with him. If cornered and stressed he can be aggressive, but this hasn’t happened since being neutered. Bruno can get puppy mouthy (not biting) when super excited or over stimulated. We break this by diverting him to something calmer such as following commands. We can now dry all of Bruno but his back legs and tail are still tentative if being dried in a new place. He does not like his back end being brushed. Bruno needs to build bonds of trust with his forever owners before he will allow them to groom him. Bruno is very scared of children, and if he feels threatened can react. He must go to a home with no young children and no frequently visiting children. Bruno loves to learn and lives for commands. If he gets stressed or doesn’t know what to do he can try to create chaos by stealing or counter jumping but routine and being given commands to follow it helps reduce his stress.

Name: Broxi
Ref No: 28001456
Location: Borders: Berwickshire
Breed: English Springer Spaniel
Age: 2 Years, 9 Months ESTIMATE
Gender: Neutered Male
Good with Children: Older
Good with Dogs: Yes
Good with Cats: No
Good with Livestock: Possibly, please ask
Status: Available

Hi, my name is Broxi. I am a beautiful English Springer Spaniel and I will be 3 years old in April. I am a very happy boy who loves being with people of all ages once I get to know you, although I am a wee bit wary of strangers at first. I enjoy being out on long walks and I love cuddles. I can give paws and high fives and will roll onto my back to get my belly rubbed. I love to play with toys and I’m learning to give them to my foster mum when she asks me. I am also learning the “leave” command, and getting quite good at it! I will need someone who can continue my training. I get along ok with other dogs but would love to have my new owners all to myself. Cats are to chase! I can walk nicely on a lead but pull sometimes when excited, and my recall is quite good but I’m easily distracted! 

 

I love to sleep on the sofa or on my foster mum’s bed, but I will sleep on the floor if I have a nice comfy bed. I am fine with being left for very short periods, but prefer you to be around.  I travel well in the car either in the boot or on the back seat on a seatbelt clip and harness.

I am quite fit and healthy, but need to be careful what I eat, as I’m allergic to some things. SRS are looking for an extra special home for me, and have a list of requirements for me.

 

If you think you are a match, please email us and one of the humans will give you additional information. I would prefer an experienced dog free home, no cats, older children would be fine, and preferably someone around most of the time. If you have been home-checked or approved by email then please email enquiries@springerrescuescotland.org with your name and postcode. If you haven’t applied yet but think I’m your perfect companion, please complete an application on the website and email enquiries@springerrescuescotland.org letting them know you have just submitted an application, giving your name and postcode.
