Sil male 18 month English Setter

Sil was given up by his hunter owner. His previous owner said that he hit him. He is improving a lot but he arrived at the shelter very scared. Initially, he crawled across the floor, but he’s getting more confident and coming closer to people. His hunter said he has separated him from other dogs because he did not get on with them but he is currently sharing a run with Itas, another submissive dog who he gets on with.  He is possessive over food at the moment which is common in rescue dogs like Sil who have gone hungry before they arrive at the shelter. Can you give him a forever home?
