We’ve set up a new rehoming process which includes social distancing measures to help keep staff and adopters safe. We’re now matching dogs with their new homes virtually and delivering dogs contact-free. For dogs who need more time to get to know their new family, you can now meet them at our rehoming centres by appointment and this now applies to all of our rehoming centres in England, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales.

Spencer

I'm looking for a new home...

About Spencer

Centre:
Breed:
Age:
2 to 5 Years
Sex:
Male

Likes

Spencer is happiest when he is playing fetch. He has a lot of energy that he likes to put into action through walks and ball play. He is happy to travel in the boot of a car to get to quiet, rural walks away from fast-moving traffic. Spencer can walk with calm dogs, he prefers smaller dogs, however, he lacks confidence and likes his own space. He is a bright boy who enjoys learning new tricks with people he trusts. Spencer does like a fuss from people he knows, but is worried by overhandling. Adopters will need to be patient and understanding and have a 'hands off' approach until Spencer is ready for affection.

Type of home needed

Spencer is looking for an active adult only home with a limited amount of visitors. He would like a home where he can enjoy fetch to his hearts content. He will need a nice secure garden and access to an off-lead field would be beneficial. He is looking to be the only dog in the home, he is not a fan of horses but is happy to walk near sheep (on his lead of course!). Spencer is worried of unknown people and will need a quiet, but active, lifestyle. Time left alone will need to be built up very gradually once he is settled into his new home. Adopters will need to live locally so Spencer can come and visit a few times, and build a bond before adoption.

More about me

I am not currently available for rehoming as I would like to meet my new family a few times before I go home, which is not possible at the moment due to current restrictions. My Canine Carers will let you know as soon as this changes, so keep an eye on my profile

 

During these uncertain times, whilst we have had to unfortunately close our rehoming centres to the public, we’d like to reassure you that our wonderful staff will continue to provide the best possible care for our dogs. We are now able to start the search for new homes for a small number of our awesome dogs. This will really help us to support even more dogs who are most at risk of being put to sleep as a result of this crisis. We have been overwhelmed by your offers of support, and we wouldn’t be able to do any of this without your help. We’d like to take this opportunity to say a big thank you to those individuals, who are doing everything they can to make sure our dogs get fed, walked, looked after and, as soon as we are able, finding them their forever home. We appreciate you thinking of us at what is a difficult time for all. If you would like to make a donation to support whilst we continue looking after the dogs in our care you can do so here...

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Spencer, who is based at Ilfracombe (Devon). Please note this is not a reservation on this dog.

We’ve set up a new rehoming process which includes social distancing measures to help keep staff and adopters safe. We’re now matching dogs with their new homes virtually and delivering dogs contact-free. For dogs who need more time to get to know their new family, you can now meet them at our rehoming centres by appointment. We can’t register interest for dogs who aren’t available for rehoming.

We will, of course, be doing everything to ensure the safety of our staff, and adopters when we offer this service. You can find out more about this below.
