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

Daisy's CV: Hi everyone my name is Daisy. I am nearly 8 years old. I am a lovely, quiet, gentle girl. I live with my foster Mum, Dad & teenage sister but best of all, my doggy foster brother who I like to snuggle into at every opportunity now I am used to him! I am enjoying having a doggy friend to live with, I think I would like to have one in my forever home. I had to go for a health check at the vets and guess what she said……….that I am healthy but very fat and I need to lose weight!! So I am on a diet! I still require to be spayed so will go to my forever home with a neutering contract. My foster brother helps me outside as I have a bit separation anxiety. When I go into the garden on my own I sit on the doorstep and only move if someone comes out with me, but when my foster brother goes into the garden I run after him and try to catch him, then I feel happy to potter about or play. As I have said, I do get  bit separation anxiety and in my first couple of days I barked when my foster mum left me to go for a shower however I feel more settled now and she can now shower in peace. I do still like to follow her about and have human company.  I really don’t like being left on my own, and while there have been some small improvements, I do need a quiet home where someone will be around the majority of the time.  I should also tell you that when I first arrived at my foster home I did grumble a few times at my foster doggy brother. I was getting lots of attention from my foster mum and he wanted in on the action and I didn’t want to share………however I am so much better now and get lots of cuddles from him too. I also growled at my foster dad and sister on 3 or 4 occasions. I was all settled, comfy and asleep when they came into the house, or the room I was in, and they unsettled me. They think I got a wee fright or that I just like to be left alone when am resting. Other than growling, I made no move to do anything else and my foster dad and sister just ignored me and walked away.  How rude! This hasn’t happened very much at all, but you need to know this about me.  I love, love, love going out for walks, the exercise is helping with my weight and I have lost a whole kilo already! I have made a few dog (and human) friends when we have been on our walks, I have never grumbled at any dogs I meet outside on my walks, I would like to run around with them but I am on a lead at this time. I do pull on the lead when I’m walking so I have been introduced to a Halti. I didn’t like it at first and would try and take if off all the time but I’m slowly getting used to it and my lead walking is improving. My foster home is near parks, a river and the hills. I love my walks along the river path as I can go in for a swim. So far I have shown no interest in chasing birds or squirrels.  I rarely travel in the car but any time I do I go in the boot where I will lie down and be very quiet and settled. I settle well at night in my bed. I do not guard food or toys. My foster mum says I really am a very good natured, gentle and affectionate girl who loves cuddles from humans and doggys. So to re-cap: I am looking for a quiet forever home where some one is home most of the day. A home with a big back garden for me and a doggy friend to play and potter about in. A home near to lots of lovely walks and maybe even hills for us to enjoy when I’m slimmer. A home where I can make doggy friends to play with when we meet up outside……I think thats it! *Please only note interest in Daisy if you have been home-checked or approved by email*

Jasper Key Information
SRS Name: Jasper
Ref No: 17001448
Location: Grampian: Aberdeenshire
Breed: Cocker Spaniel
Age: 2 Years, 4 Months
Gender: Neutered Male
Good with Children: No
Good with Dogs: Yes

Jasper's CV: Meet Jasper! He’s a very handsome two year old show cocker who loves food, sleeping, food and then some more sleeping. He’s mostly a happy wee lad, well trained and well mannered, with the exception of jumping up.. but he just wants affection.  He needs a quiet home without kids, and although he’s having a great time with his foster sister, we think Jasper needs a little focus, so would be better off as the only dog. He has a history of being nervous of men in and out of the home, so it will take some time for a bond of trust to form with any male in the home. Jasper has nipped/bitten on a few occasions, mainly when he has been disturbed when he has been at rest, all instances were avoidable. He will need to be adopted by an experienced owner who is willing to help him feel more confident. Support from SRS behaviourists will be given if you require it. Jasper was a nervous car traveller when he first came into SRS but has built up his confidence in foster with positive reinforcement, he now loves getting into the car to go on exciting adventures. He really does well when he is in the right environment. Jasper is good around the house and will let you know with a little whimper if he needs out. Jasper does not like to be disturbed when he is at rest. He currently sleeps in his bed in the living room, but really loves getting up on the furniture. We have given him a sofa of his own so he can sleep in peace.  He does understand the word no if you’d prefer him not to get up. He can be left for short periods alone with no trouble at all. He’ll give you the warmest welcome home. Just don’t be fooled by those big brown eyes, he will pinch your toast and your warm spot on the sofa if you’re not careful! He can be stubborn if he doesn’t want to do something, but food is all it takes to motivate him.  He is relatively good on the lead, at times will bark at approaching dogs but his tail is always wagging. He may pull on the lead until his business is done. Jasper has really good off lead recall in a secure area and will sit and wait politely for his reward.  Jasper is very apprehensive of the vet. He had a bad experience in his past and this has made him fearful and defensive. He needs help to get over this, by making regular visits to help him make positive associations. Again support will be given by SRS behaviourists if required. Despite the odd fearful moment, Jasper really is a lovely little lad with bags of personality. He’ll trot along next to you with a big smile and a wiggly bum, charming the socks off most people he meets! We have seen great progress with him and he will be a great wee pal for the right person. **Please only note interest in Jasper if you have been home-checked or approved by email**

Sam's CV: Hiya Everyone my name is Sam and I am 5 years old. I am looking for my forever home with a lovely big garden to play in. I am an ex working Spaniel and would like to now have a quiet, calm home. I don't like being left on my own so would prefer someone to be around most of the day, I also would love to have another dog(s) so that if you have to leave me I still have company…..also I could run around & play ball with them! I like to play with my toys and empty my toy box regularly………… I love to cuddle or be near you and will follow you round the house, nowhere is sacred! I have never lived with or been about many children so a home with no or older children would be preferable. I am absolutely no bother in the home & I sleep all night on my bed. I eat kibble twice a day (Edens). Sometimes I like a little bit of chicken or gravy added to my biscuits so that it softens them I am not a great eater and like to go back and forward in my own time. I do not like eating around other dogs or humans, so I need to be left alone. I don't bark and sometimes I am quite shy when I meet new people and other dogs. I travel well in the car. I love being out for long walks and I love being near water, I’m a good swimmer. I walk to heal on my lead. My recall in a secure area is great, I'm a good boy and come when shouted. I am also trained to the whistle. I am best kept close & on my lead near high walls and bridges as I tend to try & jump up or over to have a nosie with no idea of the drop on the other side. I'm not at present neutered so will come with a neutering contract. I am a gorgeous clever boy, I hope someone agrees and would like to give me my forever home. **please only note interest in Sam if you have been home-checked or approved by email**

Max's CV: 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.
