Dex – 5 year old male English Setter

Dex is a very handsome five-year-old English Setter. Dex is in foster in Newbury where he lives with two resident dogs and with time and patience has settled extremely well and is growing with confidence daily.

GREAT NEWS! This Dog Has Now Been Rehomed

He is confident to cuddle with the other dogs and humans play with his ball and have even settled in a local cafe. He is a complete cuddle monster and gets on with the two dogs he is currently living with.

Dex’s history is a bit different from most of the dogs we rehome. He grew up in a house with his owner and another dog in Spain. He has never been a hunting dog.

His owner changed jobs and she left him locked up in the house all day and decided she didn’t want him anymore. He arrived at the shelter unsettled but soon settled and showed he was just a really lovely boy underneath all those nerves.

Dex arrived in the UK at end of last year and his adopters realised that they were not the right home for him. He is now in foster in Newbury.

For Dex’s forever home he needs another resident dog and a secure garden. He has not been cat tested so needs a cat-free home.

Dex was born on 24th June 2016.
