English Setter, 1 Years Old

Evo is a 1 year old english setter, DOB 20.04.18

Evo and Eto were given to the shelter by their hunter owner because they weren’t good hunters. We think they are brothers but we’re not sure. 

Neither of them know how to walk on a lead at the moment. We don’t think they got fed much by their hunter since they’re both quite protective of their food. It’s not a problem and the shelter feed them separately to other dogs and this should improve in time in a nice home.

The poor boys have been really mistreated. They thrown themselves to the floor in fear of being hit if you raise your hand to stroke them. Even so, they love to have a fuss when they realise you’re not going to hurt them and they just need somebody with the patience to show them they don’t need to be scared any more. They’re very affectionate once they trust you.

Evo is currently in a run on his own at the shelter. He got into a scrap with his brother over meal time but he’s doing just fine on his own and we think he’d be ok as an only dog. He’s the more confident of the pair, still slightly nervous but loves people and likes to please so he’s quite obedient too at the shelter.
