Color:  Orange Belton

Breed: English Setter

Good with Children: Yes

Good with Dogs: Yes (for the most part)

House trained:  yes

Crate trained: Yes

Leash trained: Yes

Behavior:  Bud is an affectionate guy and loves attention.  He will crawl into your lap for a nap and belly rub.

Activity Level:   Bud is a very energetic dog.  He loves to run around, play with our dogs, stalk and then chase the birds, and other critters.  He can do this for hours at a time.  In the house he is always up for a good cuddle or nap in your lap.  He like to play with toys and balls.   

Fence:   Bud has a lot of energy and I do not believe that leash walks would be enough.  A sturdy fence is essential for Bud.

Medical History: Bud has been given a clean bill of health from our vet.  He arrived to us in an emaciated state, but is now at a healthy weight, and has been neutered.  Bud hurt his lower back in the past.  He recently finished a course of NSAIDS with good results.  While he does not need to routinely take medications for this, we do have the medication to give him as needed. 

Foster Comments:  Bud is a sweet boy.  He loves to curl up on the couch and sit with you.  It was obvious that he had not been a house dog, but he has learned to appreciate the comforts of being in a home.  He was not housetrained at all, and has really come along in that regard.  Bud has not had an accident in the last two months.  We are in a position that Bud is never left for more than a few hours at a time, so are not sure how he would do being left alone for a long workday.  Bud loves to be outside, stalking and chasing all the birds and critters.  It took him quite a while to come back to us when called, but has been doing better with recall.  He will need further obedience training.  We do monitor Bud when he is outside as he is an escape artist, so a really secure fence is essential.  For the most part, Bud gets along with other dogs, but can get a bit growly with some dogs.  He may be better as the only dog in the household.  However, this behavior has been better since finished the course of NSAIDS.
