DALLAS AB#18-147 – M, 1 Years
Foster dog name: Dallas
Size/Weight: medium/40 pounds
Color: brown & white
Breed: English setter
Good with Children: Yes
Good with Dogs: Loves them
Good with Cats: would probably chase
House trained: if taken out after meals & indoor play
Crate trained: yes, crates quietly
Leash trained: pulls but we’re working on that.
Behavior: Very active 1 year old who loves to run and play. Openly loves people, wants to get at birds & just greet each moment with a big grin. Good in the car, has never met a stranger. Is trying to learn not to jump up in greeting but a full year of not much attention, it’s all new to him.
Activity Level: Very active, always up for a game of chase or to fetch toys & watch for birds.
Fence: Required as with his bird focus, he would probably blow through an invisible fence. Doesn’t jump the 5’ fence in his foster home, but does easily hope over standard baby gates indoors.
Medical History: Up to date on all shots, neutered, HW- and healthy. Could gain a few pounds.
Foster Comments: Dallas was found as a stray running down a road in TN. A passing driver, recognizing the breed, stopped her car & he jumped right in & was turned into a shelter there. When no owner claimed him, he got neutered & came to A&B to find a suitable home. He crates quietly all night and when his foster mom needs a break from Dallas and his 2 dog buddies playing during the day. Loves being petted, cuddling, got along great with kids in a overnight home during transport. Might knock over smaller children in his desire to play. No food or toy aggression, he gives way to both his slightly older setter foster brother & the resident female hound. High energy, he’ll need training to meet his potential but is a handsome, friendly & happy dog.
