Pip is a 4 year old male English Cocker Spaniel. Pip is a 4 year old male cocker who arrived into foster having not been socialised properly with people and dogs. Reacted aggressively on lead to both people and dogs. After having spent 3 weeks in foster with a pack of dogs he is now learning how to interact and socialise. Now spends all his time outdoors off lead and greets people and dogs nicely. Still suffers from mild fear aggression but this is improving all the time.
Pip needs an experienced owner who will be firm and patient with him as he continues his socialising. He can either be an only dog or be with a more dominant dog/dogs who will keep him in his place. He will guard his bed and growl but has never bitten. He will also guard his food bowl but only until he has finished then he is happy for you to take his bowl.
Pip is a lovely happy boy who loves to cuddle up on your lap at night, and his recall is excellent outdoors. He can still be reactive on the lead but this is just nervousness and he can be easily distracted with a treat. He did suffer from separation anxiety in a previous foster but has been fine being left with the pack, however this may be different if he is to be an only dog so ideally someone who can spend a lot of time with him and/or has other dogs for company. He is very nervous meeting new people but once he knows you will be your friend forever!!
Pip has not reacted at all to neighbours cats. Older children only due to his nervousness around people.

Daisy is an 8 year old female English Cocker Spaniel. She came into foster due to a sad family break up and has clearly been a much loved pet and is in fantastic health for her age. She is reported to have a few guarding issues – we have seen one incident of this in foster and she was easily distracted with a treat and gave up the piece of paper she had found with no issues. She is a it of a grump when she gets tired but then again, aren’t we all! I would suggest children in the home are teenage plus due to this as she does clearly love older children.
She is great with other dogs though previous owner did say she isn’t keen on Labradors or German Shepherds but this has not been tested in foster. She is currently living with 3 other dogs and has been fantastic and is now joining in with play. She is in foster with a cat and does on occasion chase but means no harm but also on occasion will ignore the cat – if you have a dog savvy cat it would be possible for them to live together. She is a very loving girl who is always ready with a kiss and cuddle and loves nothing more than curling up on your knee for a sleep – typically of a Cocker, she is quite needy. In the past Daisy has had Pancreatitis and is on a food suitable for that and on treats also help keep this under control. There have been no issues whilst in foster. She is also on a joint supplement.
Daisy is great on the lead and does pull a little (she’s a spaniel!) but is easy to correct. She will need some brushing up on her recall training. Despite her being 8 she is very active and loves her walks – she would happily spend the day out walking if she was allowed! At night she has her own little routine, which if followed means a settled night and she is happy to sleep in her crate. It will be important for whoever has Daisy to give her time to settle. Her first couple of days in foster were very unsettled and she was quite confused but once she settled and learnt new routines she really has become a fantastic little dog who is very loyal and happy.
Daisy is neutered chipped vaccinated wormed and flead and adoption is subject to meet and greet homecheck and adoption fee. Applications via forms section of website please.
Monty is a 2 year old male English Cocker Spaniel. Monty is a lovely big boy, loves a cuddle and very friendly, fully house trained no chewing issues other than soft toys and his bed, but this hasn’t happened while he has been here with his bed. Can be left for up to four hours. Loves other dogs and plays well no aggression. He did guard toys and forbidden items ie socks, slippers, but this has improved greatly with patience and swapping items for other things, ie food or squeaky toys which he loves.
His recall isn’t brilliant but has improved I think the other dogs help, he was only used to being on a long lead. He is still a young dog and very bright and with some further training will make a wonderful pet. I would suggest rehoming with another dog or dogs as he has bundles of energy and loves playing. No problem with children but would suggest older children as he can play hard and still a bit protective of soft toys. No idea about cattle or horses as he hasn’t encountered any while being here, We have two dog savvy cats and he is fine with them but will chase if they run, or barks at them outside.
Monty is neutered chipped vaccinated wormed and flead. Adoption is subject to meet and greet, homecheck and adoption donation. Applications via forms section of website please.
Buddy is a 18 month old male English Cocker Spaniel. Buddy arrived at the farm, as Buddy ruled the world and the world was his oyster. Oh dear poor boy his world came crumbling down when he met the others, at the farm who are used to wannabes! He was soon to learn that food bowls are to be shared and he could share his toys. He also learnt that when you decide to try and growl at your foster mum you get sat on by, Nanny McPhee the resident German Shepherd Dog who is in charge! Buddy also thought he was a womble collecting rubbish as this would give him an excuse to guard and become possessive of a wrapper. That game was short lived as I just let him have it and he soon stopped collecting it, as it became boring.
This little boy adores cuddles and love and has started to realise he must have boundaries and follow instructions. Now please don’t misunderstand Buddy is not “cured” he never will be, although when boundaries are in place he is a delight. Fantastic recall he is never far from you, he is learning that mud doesn’t actually kill you and can be fun. He is interacting and reading the other dogs body language so much better now.
So buddy’s new home: He can live without other dogs or with as long as there is a dominant leader to keep Buddy in line. He needs an owner that will stick with the boundaries and not let Buddy be in charge. He has been called Borris here as he reminds me of a certain politician with the same hair colour that is also full of words and attitude although never follows through with any action. He is fine to be left for up to 4 hours, when he first arrived he would cry for 5 minutes although I feel this was a change of environment and is quiet now. House trained, doesn’t chew, no toys indoors and no children due to his guarding history, travels very well and walks on the lead nicely.

Loki, an American Bulldog cross Staffordshire Bull Terrier, is looking for his forever home as his current owners can no longer dedicate the time and consistency he needs for his training.
Loki is fully house trained and crate trained. He is a cuddly loving boy who obviously does not know his own strength. We are looking for an owner who has relevant experience with bully breeds and who has handled a dog of his size before. Loki is a bundle of energy and needs a confident owner, that he will respect and so have the ability to calm him down when he gets over-excited.
Loki is a very strong boy on his lead. Further training needed. He has been undergoing obedience training and already knows commands such as sit, down, paw and drop, as well as some special tricks like high-five and roll over. An intelligent boy who needs direction and outlets. Loki may suit an adult only household, possibly with only older visiting children. He will need someone who is around most of the time and who will be consistent with his training.
Loki probably needs to be the only dog in the home as he can be quite vocal around new dogs, so will need an owner who will continue to socialise helping curb some of his exuberance and teach ‘play nicely’. No cats please!
Loki is roughly 2.5 years old, micro-chipped, fully vaccinated and neutered. Any other information you need we will be happy to give.
Bernie is a typically lively 3 year old Blue Roan working English Cocker Spaniel. Bernie is a delight with a permanently waggy tail, great with other dogs doesn’t particularly play but is very happy in their company, great with people friendly but not overly so with strangers but happy once he knows you. He loves to sit on your lap but is equally happy in his bed in his crate – he has always slept in a crate so this will need to continue. Great around food and toys, walks ok on a lead, happy to be left for a couple of hours.
So Bernie is the perfect dog? Not quite – Bernie should be called Houdini, Bernie doesn’t see fences as barriers more challenges to overcome. He is constantly trying to escape either through, under – he is a very proficient digger or over and once he’s away its nose down and spaniel deafness. Even in our large garden he doesn’t listen. He has a recall – he just chooses not to use it. Bernie had to leave his home because he escaped on several occasions and enjoyed running around with the sheep.
So Bernie needs a Bernie proof home, your garden must be 100% secure and he shouldn’t be able to access the front door easily as he will, given the opportunity, just leg it. He needs someone who will spend time training him he does appear to respond to a whistle and something like agility may help him focus his attention and he would be good at it he’s fast and very springy. He needs a lot of work if his recall is to improve he’s a clever dog who needs to learn to focus and listen.
Bernie previously lived with children and would be fine with them, seems fine around chickens and cats although may chase. Fine with other dogs but would also be ok as an only dog providing he had human company most of the time.
Bernie is neutered chipped vaccinated wormed and flead and adoption subject to meet and greet homecheck and adoption donation. Applications via forms section of website please.
Dexter is a 12 year old male English Springer Spaniel. Dexter came in to foster due to concerns of him becoming aggressive. He has had no issues with any aggression when in foster. Previous owners had had him since he was a puppy. Dexter is a 12-year-old dog with plenty of energy who loves walking but also loves to sit by the fire curled up on his bed sleeping. He hearing is not what it used to be so not very good on recall however will respond to commands if facing you. He lives with 5 other dogs in foster and gets on with all of them. He also live with teenagers and children visit regularly without concerns although I would suggest a home with older children that are able to understand that he cannot hear as well as other dogs he can be easily startled.
When seeing the vet he was very friendly with her and had no problems through out our visits. He loves socialising with humans and dogs alike. He is in really good health for his age although was informed he can have an upset stomach on certain food. Continued him on the food he has had for many years without concerns. He is not castrated and advise from the vets was to leave him due to his age as there is no other health concerns.
He knows basic commands and loves companion of humans. He can pull a bit on the lead however does settled down as the walk continues. He loves his treats and has no problem at feeding time (other then barking to let you know not to forget him). He is a fantastic dog with plenty of love and loyalty to give a new family.
Dexter is not neutered (on vets advice) but he is vaccinated chipped wormed and flead. Adoption subject to meet and greet and homecheck. This boy is stunning! Please look past his age.
Tia is a 10 month old Spaniel cross Jack Russell Terrier. Tia is a very friendly puppy. She is okay with dogs and can live with cats and children. Tia will need work regarding house training as she still does go occasionally indoors. Tia also struggles with being home alone.
A family willing and able to work with Tia to overcome these little issues is a must and please do not apply just because Tia is a cute puppy. Someone around most of the time with Tia is ideal and she can then gradually get used to being comfortably left at home if needed. A beautiful young lady who is lots of fun.
Reggie is a 2 year old Yorkshire Terrier Cross. He is a very friendly boy and loves everyone he meets. Reggie can live with dog savvy cats – he will chase if cats run away. Reggie hasn’t lived with children. Due to his high energy, older children would be better. Okay with other dogs. Reggie cannot be left alone for no more than a couple of hours (if that) he becomes very noisy and stressed. He would benefit from a routine and training.
Reggie becomes very overwhelmed and struggles to calm down, this can be triggered by seeing another dog out on a walk or being left alone. He will require a calm and understanding home where his new family are willing to work with him.
