“DOC” HOLLIDAY AB#19-060-09 – M, 10 Weeks
Foster dog name: "Doc" Holliday
Age: Puppy (3/11/19 DOB)
Size/Weight: small, but growing
Color: Black and white, Black ticking aka lots of spots
Breed: English Setter mix. Mom is setter, Dad was possibly pointer
Socialization/training: Both puppies (Doc and Ringo) have been around our resident dogs and resident cat. The puppies think it is great fun to chase the cat around the kitchen. Both puppies know sit and come here, they love treats and are very treat motivated and seem more trainable than my dogs were at that age. They may get that from their dad who is unknown.
Good with Children: yes
Good with Dogs: yes
Good with Cats: yes
House trained: not completely, they will not soil their crate over night and we let them out first thing in the morning and frequently throughout the day since I work from home. They get lots of time outside to run and play. They do still have accidents in the house though. We are working on bell training them so that they will ring a bell on the door when they want to go out, but that can be problematic since they wants to go outside to play when they aren’t sleeping instead of just going to the bathroom.
Crate trained: yes, overnight and for short periods of time throughout the day
Leash trained: they have been walking well with a harness when we are out of the fenced back yard.
Activity Level: Puppy playful and then puppy crash.
Fence: A fence would be best for a young puppy to be safe and able to explore with supervision.
Behavior: For example, cuddler? independent? Attentive? Doc is all of the above. He is a cuddler, somewhat independent and very attentive.
Medical History: up to date on all vaccines, seresto collar, heartworm, flea & tick preventative, dewormed, microchipped. Will need to be neutered at a later date in his forever home.
Foster Comments: Doc is a typical puppy and has fun running around and playing with his brother in our kitchen and backyard. He loves to chew on sticks and play with toys. He seems very trainable and knows “sit” and “come here”. He is very treat motivated. He loves to cuddle on the couch and get his belly rubbed when we are having our morning coffee or watching television at night. He will crawl in your lap and fall asleep whenever possible. He is not as independent as his brother and tends to stay close by when outside. He will follow his brother and the resident dogs, but mostly likes to hang out with people. When I am outside doing yard work he will usually grab a stick and lay down in the grass. Doc would do well in a home where someone works from home and he can hang out with his person all day. My boys have so much fun with him and will be sad to say goodbye when he goes to his forever home.
