Monty a 5 year old English Setter who is now in foster in Newcastle upon Tyne. He’s an extremely friendly boy and just loves people! He’s also very good with other dogs, he doesn’t have a nasty bone in his body.
He loves to play, either with other dogs or on his own. He loves a ball or pretty much any toy that he can throw around the garden and pounce on. He’s really fun to watch, just like watching a puppy!
He’s housetrained and behaves well in general around the house although he does still counter surf if he gets the opportunity! He doesn’t yet understand what a dog bed is (or anything else comfy for that matter) after not having one for so long but he will soon grow accustomed to more home comforts. He sleeps through the night without making a peep. He’s picked the stairs as his current bed for the night!
He loves going for walks, he could do with building up some fitness and stamina but he’s getting more and more confident each day. He could change in time but his recall at the moment isn’t the most challenging for a setter and I think he could probably be off his lead in time.
He arrived with some separation anxiety but has improved a lot and can be left for short periods now. He loves people so much he just wants to be with them all the time. He would do great with another dog for company and people who can spend a lot of time with him.
