Thread: English Springer Needs a New Home

    Default English Springer Needs a New Home

    I have a 3 year old English Springer Spaniel who needs a new home. He is started on wild pheasant, and has some potential, but still needs some work. I am not a breeder or a trainer. We live in town and have been having some problems with him being aggressive toward the neighborhood children, so he needs to find a new place to live. He would also be great for someone looking for a little extra protection. I have used him as a running partner and to get rid of door to door salesmen. Although he has aggression issues I have to add that, after the initial bad first impression, he really isn't a bad dog. He has been great with our 7 month old daughter, even coming to get me when she cries. He also plays well with our neighbor's husky and our other 2 Springers. The attached picture is from last fall. It was his first water retrieve. I can post more pictures if you would like, or answer any questions here.

    It would be beneficial to know where you live. Also some additional photos of the dog and his pedigree would probably help as well.

    I am in Rapid City, SD. He was a rescue, so I don't know anything about his lineage. I am a vet tech and he came to our clinic when he was 9 weeks old with Parvo. The owners couldn't afford to treat him, so I took him. I meant to find him a home right away, but fell in love with him. We would keep him still, but he has become a problem with children in the neighborhood. We live 4 blocks away from a school and cannot keep him here.

    I am also willing to travel if it is helpful in finding this boy a home.

    You are a vet tech. OK.
    How is this boy conformation? Is he sound in his hips / joints?
    Does he have even development in his front & rear quarters? etc.

    We had a Springer for 13 great seasons before he passed.

    I can't guarantee anything, but he seems perfectly sound. He is a very good looking dog, balanced and straight. He is in perfect shape (body score 5 of 9) and has been very fit thus far. He has a tendency to "shuffle" his back feet when he walks around the house. You can hear it on the wood floor, but it doesn't seem to be a problem. The shuffle disappears when he trots or runs. He has a balanced, even trot, but tends to over reach a little on the front when he runs. I think it's just because he's silly, because his gait evens out when he's serious about catching up with something or tired.

    I would do it again, only next time rehome him when he was still a pup. It's proving very difficult to find a home for a slightly used Springer Spaniel with a record.
