English Setter, 12 Years Old
UPDATE: Manila is now in a lovely foster home in Newbury and looking for her forever home. She’s an absolute sweetheart, seeming much younger than her age. She loves a good run about in the garden and a walk and she even walks nicely on her lead! Her foster mum takes her to work in a nursing home and the residents love her. She’s very gentle and she loves nothing more than a cuddle. She can mostly be found snuggled into a human or one of the other resident dogs, having taken a real shine to the other old female setter in the house.
Manila is a gorgeous female older English setter, 12 Years Old, her date of birth is 15/06/10.
Manila is a charming and sweet natured dog, given up by her hunter because she is no longer any use to him, along with her daughter, Katy and her companion Luna, they all share a kennel together.
Manila is great with other dogs, male and female and she enjoys their company.
Manila adores people, she is very affectionate and she loves cuddles and caresses. She will come running over when called for a stroke within the confines of the shelter but of course it could be very different on a walk.
Manila arrived at the shelter extremely thin and she is still quite anxious over food, initially she should be fed seperately but hopefully over time she will realise that food is no longer in short supply and she will relax around food.
