English Setter, 8 Years Old
UPDATE: Sadly Isel’s adoption hasn’t worked out and she’s looking for a new home. This lovely little girl is an absolute gem and is going to make a family very happy! She’s currently in Dorset
Isel is currently living with 3 other dogs and we would love to find her a home with a resident dog. She gets on very well with her current brothers and sisters and has lovely doggy manners. She’s happy to share a bed and loves to cuddle up with her sister in particular. She can also be quite playful, although she hasn’t been in her home long so hasn’t completely come out of her shell yet. She is just getting used to toys and isn’t quite sure what to make of them just yet but likes to chase a ball which is lovely to see
She has settled remarkably well into home like and adores her humans and has been confident with everyone she has met so far. She’s confident around normal household noises and even likes to watch a bit of Strictly Come Dancing!
Her toilet training is coming on well since it’s still early days and she tells her family when she needs to go outside. She travels well in the car now after a little bit of practice to help her get used to it, now she knows they lead to nice walks, she enjoys a car trip! She’s not used to walking nicely on a lead yet but she’s not particularly strong and doesn’t pull much (at the moment!). She’s also food focussed which has been helping with her training so far. She’s a beautiful, clever girl who has already learnt her name and enjoys enrichment to give her mental stimulation alongside her walks but she does also know when it’s time to settle down and relax too
Her current family say she’s a delightful and happy girl and will make a super and loving companion. They’re very sad to let her go but due to personal circumstances, it’s the right decision to let her move on
HISTORY: Isel is a gorgeous eight year old female English Setter, date of birth 28/08/2014.
Isel was handed into the shelter by a hunter as she was no longer wanted. The photos were taken on the day she arrived and she is a little lost, she obviously was confused to be left somewhere new and was looking for her family. It seems she had a good relationship with her family and was used to spending time with them.
Isel has a special feature, she has a fallen ear which occurred at her birth. Sadly Isel’s mother died during the birth, the pups were pulled from her and they all died apart from Isel. Her ear was pulled as she was taken out of her mother’s body and she has had a fallen ear ever since.
Isel is a very sociable dog, she gets on well with male and female dogs and at the moment she shares a kennel with Lola. Isel has a very sweet nature.
Isel is very attached to people, she may be a little shy at first but then once she gains some confidence she is very affectionate.
