Age: 5-6 years, Approx. DOB 4/11/11
Color: White & liver
Breed: English Setter
Good with Children: yes
Good with Dogs: He is unpredictable with dogs. He would be best as a single dog. There are many dogs in the neighborhood that he is quiet with and a few that just set him off. Small or elderly dogs will not be a good fit.
Good with Cats: Yes
House trained: Yes-He's amazing in the house. Has never used the inside of our home as a potty, he always waits for us to take him out.
Crate trained: He does not like the crate.
Leash trained: Working on it. He does pull when he's on a leash or lead but he's getting better & having a harness on him helps a great deal.
Activity Level: He has high energy as he will run in the yard for hours.
Fence REQUIRED: 5-6ft fence or invisible fencing would be best. He could/would probably jump a 4' fence. He seem fine with a 5 ft fence. I don’t know that invisible fence would be good for him
Behavior: He's such a cuddle bug!!!!!
Medical History: He is neutered, up to date on vaccines, heartworm & lyme negative. Full panel blood work done.
Foster Comments: He does get car sick when you travel with him. He also gets into a barking fit so a spray bottle with a firm NO while spraying him once or twice settles him down. He LOVES to talk. Keeping your voice low when he starts in makes a difference. The louder you get...the louder he gets! He really loves women and cuddles and sleeps with you.
His adoptive family will need to be firm on redirection with him, but other than that he's just a complete dream!!!
Foster Location: Bartlett, IL
