English Setter Mix    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    We rescued Falcor six years ago, and he has been a good dog and part of our family since then. He isn't the most playful of dogs, but he's generally calm, not very needy, and will take any loving you give to him, happily. Most of the time, he'll just sit somewhere nearby, in case you feel like petting him. He's afraid of thunderstorms and fireworks, but not a lot else phases him (Except cats)! He is smart, but doesn't really do a lot of tricks. He understands when you call him, when he needs to go to his kennel, and usually responds pretty well to commands. Falcor has been around children his entire time with us, and he loves them. ... (Read More)We have three kids who would lay with him, play with him, and love on him, and he's always been good with the little ones. He is absolutely terrified of cats, however. He gets nervous around them, shaking and freezing up. It was never an issue before and we were very hopeful when we got a cat of our own that he would eventually adjust. He did very well until the cat got older and bigger and he eventually got very mean with the cat. He is an indoor/outdoor dog, but it eventually got to the point where he is primarily outdoor since he turns into a mess whenever he is around the cat. He has lost some weight and isn't eating very well since he's so nervous. He is a great dog, but he should not be around cats at all for his own health. There isn't anything negative about him aside from that. He's otherwise a very healthy, friendly dog who will spend most of his time lounging. He doesn't get on furniture unless you tell him to, usually preferring to be by your feet. He is mostly English Setter, so he has that beautiful soft coat that is fairly easy to maintain. He doesn't require much brushing, but will shed if you don't brush him occasionally. He is VERY good with taking a bath and being groomed, will sit calmly while you clip his nails. We have been feeding him senior dog food, but he responds fairly well to a change in diet. His weight will fluctuate depending on stress, so there might be an adjustment period. He is kennel trained as well as potty trained and will not go in the house unless you forget to let him out for a long period of time. He doesn't bark while indoors, but will if he is left outdoors for long periods of time. He loves taking walks and is fair to good on a leash. He doesn't pull much, but he'll sometimes run into your legs. He is good with other dogs, though he prefers dogs that are closer to his size. Smaller, energetic dogs make him nervous, but he doesn't bite or anything like that. (Less)

English Setters are gentle pets that are wonderful with children. English Setters are calm indoors but need a large fenced yard in which to roam and play.
