Eira is a beautiful 5 yr old ex-breeding Cocker Spaniel.When she arrived in Rescue in January she had multiple mammary tumours and a damaged ear drum. Since then she has had two operations to have the tumours removed. Her ear has been treated, she's had a dental, been spayed and had a vaccination course. In common with most ex-breeders Eira was fearful of humans, unexpected movements and noises. Now she happily gives her paw to be stroked, and has learnt from the resident dogs that if she jumps on the sofa she'll get a cuddle. In the home Eira is not destructive; she is housetrained and sleeps through the night.Her main ambition is to ambush the resident cat, who she'll chase if given the opportunity. Eira is a happy, busy, cocker spaniel when out and about. Her confidence has grown to the extent where she wags her tail when her wood walk 'fan club' gently say hello to her. She is not used to walking on busy roads where the sound of passing traffic makes her fearful, however she readily goes in the car to get to her walks in the woods. Eira is a clever cocker spaniel, when she recognises we are about to arrive there she lets us all know it.We are looking for a forever home for Eira where someone has the time to give her the attention she'll need to feel confident and happy there. Eira has never been crated in her foster home, nor shut behind a door. She likes to know where her person is in the house and in the daytime she will potter around to check; she can be left with the resident dogs for short periods so it's important that in her forever home there is confident, kind, well trained resident dog(s) to help her adjust to her new life. Eira can still be spooked if, unexpectedly, a hand comes towards her or a foot comes too close; also if there are sudden loud noises. For this reason any children should be dog savvy and 12 years old or above. No cats! She must have interesting walks. A half hour visit to the park will not suit Eira - she is a busy cocker spaniel. Ideally her forever home will have access to woods/countryside, with experienced cocker spaniel owners who will train her to recall so she can safely run about, nose to the ground sniffing out where other creatures have been. Eira had no idea what a cocker spaniel's life should be like. Her forever family will make sure it'll be full of adventures from now on - which should have been her birthright from the start.Eira is in foster in Sheffield.
