New owners: Raffi needs a home with someone around most of the day as this is what he's used to. They need to be experienced with resource guarding which although doesn't happen often still can! Raffi will not be re homed with children, an active retired couple would suit Raffi well, someone who can be firm but kind and be willing to spend time grooming due to Raffi's beautiful show coat. Raffi is used to wearing a muzzle when out and about so any new owner should be willing to continue doing this as a precaution only.
Other Comments: Raffi is a beautifully bred Tri coloured show strain English Springer Spaniel, he enjoys playing with toys but isn't ball obsessed. He would make a wonderful companion for either a person living alone or an active retired couple who knows the temperament of the show strain ESS which tends to be more laid back and steadier than the working strain type but can be greedy scavengers and slightly more aloof in nature. They do still enjoy getting wet and muddy so will need regular grooming to prevent matts in their heavy longer coat.
