English Setter, 4 Years Old
Ok… They’ve asked me to write a message for you all to read… I’m not much of a writer but I’ll do my best!
Where do I start? I’m 4 and apparently stunning… the shelter doesn’t have mirrors but I’m more than happy to take their word for it! Oh, and my name is Rex! How did I forget that?!
I’ve lived with a hunter most of my life but he got offered a job in another country I think so he left me with one of his friends. To be honest, I didn’t think much of the some of the dogs there… they were a bit dominant for my liking but I didn’t mean to end up homeless! I’m at a nice shelter now though and they say they’re finding me a nicer home anyway so it will all work out fine. While I’m thinking about nice people, apparently I have lots of people supporting me and paying for me to be here, thank you sooo much! I don’t know where I would have ended up without you lot!
I really like people and love a good cuddle! Nothing makes me happier! They say I’m also quite well behaved but I could have told them to start with that I’m a good boy!
I live with other dogs now, they’ve put me in a run without dominant dogs which I much prefer! When I first arrived, I was in my own run for a while until they got to know me and we had a HUGE storm one night… Now, I don’t want to ruin my street cred, but I got a little bit scared… ok fine, I was really scared!! It’s ok though, I managed to find my way into the run next door and curl up with my neighbour. They’re not sure how I managed to do it but I’m determined! I got a cut on my leg doing it which was a bit annoying but I put on a brave face to try to make up for all that street cred I’d lost and the vet patched me up nicely the next day. That was a while ago now and I’m all fixed. I forget how I got onto this story now… oh yes! I’d like another doggy friend at home please in case we have any storms! You’ve got to be prepared for these things you know…
Handsome Rex belonged to a hunter in Spain who got a job in Germany. A friend offered to take him but he didn’t hit it off with a couple of his dominant male dogs so he asked if we could help. Rex is now in Conchi’s shelter, financed by the kind people who make monthly donations. When he first arrived, he was very anxious around his food and was very keen to protect it so we think he struggled to get enough food when he was with his hunter. He was improved a lot in the shelter and will improve even more with time once he realises he doesn’t need to worry about where his next meal will come from
He’s sharing a run with Lola the Vizsla at the minute. He gets on well with female dogs and would be an ideal companion to a female or as an only dog with plenty of human company. He’s an active dog and he loves to run outside at the shelter. He’s also very affectionate with people, he’s a really lovely boy
