English Setter, 6 Years Old
This wonderful chap is sadly looking for a new home due to several big changes in his family’s circumstances meaning, heartbreaking as it is, the best thing for Hiru was to find a new home. He is currently in foster in Cumbria
Hiru is a really smashing boy, one of a kind. He’s confident, playful, cheeky and very affectionate. He has lived as an only dog in his home for a couple of years and is very happy and also goes to day care and gets on really well with other dogs there too. He’s currently in foster with 2 other dogs and cats so he adapts well to a variety of situations and will make a really great addition to his new family.
He walks really well on his lead, although is partial to a bit of a pull if he sees something exciting like a squirrel, but he is a setter after all! He has good recall and is off lead in safe areas. He loves to play with toys and like any working setter, is still active at his age with plenty and plenty of love left to give.
HISTORY: Hiru is a very handsome 4 Year old English setter, DOB 10.12.16
Hiru arrived in the shelter in Cantabria in December and we managed to find him a lovely foster home so he could travel on our last trip before Brexit. He arrived in his foster home in Cumbria on the 29th December
He was handed over to the shelter because his hunter said he wasn’t good at hunting. He’s a really cheery and confident boy and just wants to play with the dogs in his foster home. He’s a real sweetie. His foster mum says he’s an absolute gem and eager to please. At the moment, he walks on a lead wonderfully but he does have signs of a strong prey drive so this might become more challenging as he settles in
