Known as "the moderate setter," the graceful English Setter's love of people and easygoing nature can make him a super friend for an active family as well as a fine hunting dog. He's not as rollicking as the Irish setter nor as standoffish toward strangers as the Gordon Setter. Gentle, kind, and affectionate, he's devoted to his family, sociable with strangers, and gets along just fine with kids.
While he isn't precise enough to achieve the highest scores in obedience competition, he is moderately easy to train. The English Setter is a good watchdog and will bark to alert his people that someone is approaching the house. Once he's introduced to guests, however, he happily accepts their presence. All these qualities make him a good choice for a first-time dog owner who appreciates this breed's beauty and sweetness and can provide him with the exercise he needs.
English Setters are quiet indoors, but outside they love to run and play with other dogs and people. A daily run, off-leash play in a fenced area, or an energetic hike through a nearby park or wilderness area will be just this English breed's cup of tea.
Our last Animal Rescue Pet of the Week is a beautiful Terrier mix named Trouble. He is 2 years old and weighs about 20-25 pounds. Do not think his name reflects his personality because he is precious. Trouble has beautiful red short hair which makes grooming very simple…bath and brushing. Trouble is shy when first meeting you but warms up fast. He is good with everyone, especially kids, and gets along with other pets. Trouble is neutered, current on vaccines and micro-chipped. Come on out…we will be looking for you this Saturday.
The Terrier has sometimes been described as having a dual personality. He is a fearless, tenacious hunter with seemingly unlimited energy. When he is not hunting, however, the Terrier is an exceptionally friendly companion, getting along well with children, other dogs, and even cats. Their lifespan is 15+ years on average. The Terrier temperament: Intelligent, Affectionate, Alert, Inquisitive, Lively, Loving, Fearlessly game for just about anything, Friendly, Inquisitive, Lovable, Friendly, lovable and inquisitive.
