Elmo is a very affectionate boy, very sociable with all people and dogs. He is not fearful or shy at all, he loves cuddles and meeting new friends.
He has a VERY high energy level and a high prey drive for birds, so if he’s off lead he will chase birds like a typical setter so for his safety he would be better walked on an extendable lead and exercised in an enclosed field. Elmo would love a big garden with other furry friends to burn energy and play all day long. He walks well on the lead.

Adopting A DogWatch UK Rescue Dog
Before being adopted, dogs will have bee vaccinated, wormed and treated for fleas.
If old enough they will have been neutered, if too young the new owners will need to ensure this is done.
All dogs are microchipped
All new owners can apply for 4 weeks Pet Insurance FREE, to be activated from the link on our website
For Rescue Dogs coming from overseas
This adoption fee is a contribution towards the costs of rescuing the dog including
– microchip, pet passport, vaccines, tests for South European diseases, neutering (IF OLD ENOUGH), parasite treatment and transport to the UK.
We can not home dogs from overseas to people who work full time or long hours, unless some sort of doggy day care is offered. They need someone at home a lot of the day, they are not used to being alone for long periods. A dog walker for an hour out of the day is not enough.
Leaving dogs a long time on their own means they are highly likely to develop separation anxiety which is distressing for them and everyone in their new home.
