English Setter, 7 Years Old

“Hi, my name is Rocky! I was rescued from my hunter very quickly as some kind people were worried about what might happen to me if they left me there! They said they could see my life’s story in my eyes. I’m at a lovely shelter now and I’m told that it’s the SeBPRA supporters I have to thank for that! I’ve been there a while now though and people tell me I’m not getting much interest which I can’t understand… I see all my friends leave on these big exciting trips to go to their new homes with a proper family but I get left behind each time… I think it might be my age, you see, I’m 7 now but I don’t feel it! I’d like to think I’m past that annoying puppy age (you all now what I mean!!) but I still have so much more to give and I can keep up with the young ones with ease! I do protect my food because I’m used to being starved and I’m scared I won’t get another meal again so the lovely ladies looking after me feed me separately so I can learn I’m safe when I’m eating… I think I’ll get used to it in time but I’d like a safe space away from other dogs in my new home for dinner time. Actually, they think I would make a great only dog which many of my friends would struggle with. I used to live alone with my hunter so I’m used to my own company but I do love humans so I’d like a home where I’m not left alone all day. If I was lucky enough to get a new family, I promise I’ll repay them with lots of cuddles and affection and love them forever”

We were asked to help Rocky who lived alone with a hunter and was unwanted we were told and needed to be removed fast. They sent us a video of him with his setter owner and it broke our hearts to see his eyes, he just looked so shut down. He is now at Conchi’s shelter, financed by the kind people who donate ever month. When he first arrived, he wasn’t sure if people should be trusted after what life has taught him so far but he changed his mind almost completely and loves human company now. He loves to run and has a lot of fun in the outside area at the shelter. When you call him, he comes running over looking for a fuss. He’s quite a big boy for a working setter and strong on his lead so needs somebody who can handle him while he learns to walk nicely
