Darby is a sweet older gentleman that is about 10 years young, gets along with everyone and loves his people. He was a hunting dog that was left at a gun club in the Dallas area. The owner of the club called SWESR for help, he knew this sweet boy would appreciate a home and family in his senior years. We have no idea of his hunting skills so he is not a candidate for a hunting home and he seems very content with his rescue life as a house dog. He’s a Velcro boy and loves to be with his people.
He gets along with all dogs he has met and would probably be fine with small dogs in the home. He’s good with people of all ages, including kids. He’s fine in a shorter fenced yard. He is not a candidate for a home with an invisible fence or any kind of e-collar use.
Darby is crate trained and he likes his crate, the door is left open so he can come and go whenever he likes. He is housetrained, is not a barker, rides well in the car and does well on a leash. He loves his kong toy and will share toys and treats with other dogs.
He likes to be both inside and outside. Outside he self exercises in his fenced yard with the resident dogs and inside he is a chill Setter boy. He comes when you call him and doesn’t have the typical Setter escape drive, why would he escape now that he’s finally found the good life? He’s not showing signs of thunder, noise or any type of anxiety.
Darby is in a temporary foster home in the Dallas Texas area. He is available for foster, foster-to-adopt and adoption. He is neutered, micro-chipped, current on vaccines, heartworm negative and on heartworm preventative. Are you the family this sweet gent is waiting for?​
