Are you looking for an active senior Setter?

Luca is a wonderful boy. He loves to run and play in the yard. You would never know he is 12. He is not ready for full retirement yet! He enjoys playing with his foster siblings in the yard and would love to have a buddy or two to play with in his permanent home, but he would also be ok solo. He is expressive, and when he wants to come in, he will bark to let you know.


While he has not had a lot of exposure to cats, he passed his cat test, showing no interest when he was introduced to a cat that was sitting still quietly at the vet’s office.


Inside, he loves to play with toys, but as sweet as he is, he does not get on the furniture. He likes to have toys when he is crated, and he is very good in the crate.


He is very treat-motivated, and he learns well using treats. We are working on “sit” before he gets to eat. We also are teaching him to sit while we are eating. He is progressing nicely with gentle reminders.


Luca loves to go for walks. He is quite strong on leash, but he responds well with an Easy Walk (front attachment) harness.


If you are looking for a great companion, Luca is your boy! He would love for you to fill out an application!
