Spur – Adoption Pending

Spur – Adoption Pending

Spur is a gorgeous almost 6 year old male tri-color Setter.  He is standard sized for a field Setter weighing in at a lean 54 pounds.  He is FDSB registered and was whelped in Illinois.  He went to Oklahoma to hunt but is heat intolerant and he came to rescue where we are happy to have him.  

This is Spurs’ first time living in a home so he will still need to be monitored in a new environment for house training.  He is crate trained and so far has loved all the dogs he has interacted with, from a small female 25 pound terrier to a  120 pound male doodle.  He wants another dog buddy in the home to pal around with and that will tolerate some running kind of play. He is likely not cat safe since he shows a great deal of interest in them in the house.  

We’re not sure how Spur is with children since there are no small children in the foster’s home.  He is pretty confident and so far has enjoyed meeting new people on his excursions to the vet’s office.  Like most Setters, he pulls on the leash when excited so he is a bit of a handful.  He’s a little bit nosy in the house so counters should be surfer proofed to ensure he doesn’t get into something he shouldn’t.  

Spur loves to be outside but mostly loves it when you are watching him run.  And who wouldn’t want to watch him?  He moves like an elegant gazelle while he travels through the yard hunting out birds that might be passing through.  He requires a home with a 6′ fenced yard. Spur tolerated the heat in August by running and then jumping in the wading pool set up for him to cool off.  His ideal home would likely be one that was a little cooler than Oklahoma in the summer. 

Spur is a beautiful boy that is also very sweet and sensitive.  He likes to hunt but also likes to hang out with you and have his back rubbed.  He barks usually only at meal time and has a great appetite.  Spur sleeps in his crate and will jump right in there with a treat lure.  He rides great in the back seat of the car and will settle down to sleep if the trip is longer than a few minutes.  Spur does not seem to have a strong escape drive but like any Setter should be watched to ensure he doesn’t find an outlet for escape.  He is at risk for dashing out the front door so should be corralled before answering the front door.  

Spur is up to date on vaccinations, neutered and microchipped. He is in a foster home in Edmond, OK. Are you the furever home that this cool boy is looking for?
