Guardian Home

An opportunity to foster a Springer Spaniel that is being considered for breeding 

A Guardian Home is a great opportunity for an individual or family to enjoy a "pick of the litter" that is being considered for breeding by O'Shea Springers. It may be a adult or puppy. These dogs are the best of the best as we always choose the best from our litters in order to better our breed. A great dog, at a great price, FREE.


There is a deposit to ensure commitment by the Guardian Home is followed through and is then reimbursed over the time of the breeding career. The puppy/dog remains the property of O'Shea Springers until the end of the breeding career and then become the Guardian Home's dog forever after. Typically at the age of 4 years, the dog then becomes part of the forever home.

There is a commitment and willingness to be flexible for the needs of O'Shea Springers, but we believe it is well worth it to receive what is typically a "cream of the crop" puppy or dog. The value of the pup/dog is often $4,000-5,000 so a contract is necessary and there is a need for us to find the perfect home.
