3/12/12 Poor Springer has had to be put to sleep after the vets found an inoperable tumour. Run free Springer :(
This lovely boy is Springer and he’s a seven year old Labrador X Staffordshire Bull Terrier who is being rehomed privately by his owner. Springer is medium-sized, with long legs and a grey speckled chest. He needs to find a new home through no fault of his own, his owner now has to care for her elderly mother so cannot give him the time he needs.
Springer is a very placid boy who loves people and is great with children. He enjoys attention and having a cuddle and he can be quite playful. At home he’s happy to be left for 4-5 hours at a time and he’s housetrained.
Springer likes to go for regular walks and his owner lets him off-lead in the gated area of the common, close to where they live. He’s usually put on the lead when other dogs are around, but he gets on fine with female dogs and has played in the garden with a relative’s Staffie girl. Springer is good with cats and has lived with three. He ignores any he sees in the garden.
Springer is in good health and is neutered, vaccinated and microchipped.
If you are interested in offering Springer a new home, please contact his owner, Sian, as follows;
Tel: 07946 341062
Please mention that you saw Springer on the Oldies Club website.
Prospective adopters will be homechecked and Sian has confirmed that she will take Springer back if his new home doesn’t work out for any reason.
Oldies Club suggests you read our article Questions for Adopters which is written to help people who are planning to adopt a dog from a private owner rather than a rescue.
