About me

Hi there! My name is Bilbo and I am a super handsome spaniel looking for my new home.

I am a very energetic young lad and love to be out and about!! Nothing is more fun than hiking through the countryside, investigating over walls and hedges in the fields, or flushing through the undergrowth to see what I can find! I’ll be a great companion for a really active person who enjoys the great outdoors. I love to play searching games too and would really enjoy learning a fun sport like nosework or tracking.

I adore my human friends and will say hello to anyone, although it can take me a little while to build a real bond – once we’ve gotten to know each other though, I will be your friend for life! I have lived with children before but I found it a bit overwhelming at times, so I’d prefer to live with young adults only in my new home. I’m much too busy following my nose and focusing on my people friends to be at all interested in dogs, and would prefer to have my walks somewhere really rural so I don’t have to worry about them. Now cats are a little too tempting to chase, so I’d better not live with any of those either!

Once I am settled I love hanging out with my family, relaxing on the sofa or lying on the floor. But nothing will compare to my beautiful smiling face to greet you when you get up in the mornings.

Help Bilbo to find a happy home with the gift of pet sponsorship!

Does your loved one have room in their heart, but not in their home, for a pet of their own? Blue Cross sponsorship is the perfect present for animal lovers.

Sponsor a pet as a gift for your loved one from as little as 70p a week, and they will receive monthly updates from real homeless pets in our care who are just waiting to meet their new families. Your chosen friend or family member will also receive a downloadable certificate from each of the dogs, cats, small pets and horses they’ve helped to find loving new homes.
