Meet Merlin

English Setter, 7 years old

🌳 Countryside dog
🍷 Lives with adults only
Merlin was adopted!

He came from A Bosnian Rescue.

My favourite thing about Merlin is...

His silly setter grin! And his really loving nature and gentle manner.

The biggest challenge with Merlin is...

His recall! He does not like to come back after a seaside outing. This is due to spending his first year of life in a breeding kennel, in a cage on concrete. He is not a large doggie due to his length of time squashed in a cage and he loves to run. He was going to be destroyed if we hadn't taken him as his breeder did not want him. He didn't know what he was rejecting!

The most surprising thing about owning a English Setter is...

The amount of love inside there.

What I wish I’d known about English Setters is...

Their stubborness

Did you know

Even amongst litters of show bred puppies, their freezing crouching behaviour can be seen almost as soon as puppies can walk!
