3 years
About Me:
Adopted 11 year old AKC Irish Setter who lost home due to foreclosure. Very arthritic. Have rehabed him with good diet, hydrotherapy and lots of love. He's tall, handsome and regal. Attracts attention wherever we go. Gentle & kind with people but easily frightened of other dogs. Is still capable of 45 min walks on soft ground. Soon to turn 14 years old. Unpredictable, fascinating, playful and very stubborn.

Considering Adoption; Please Advise

Posted on October 27, 2011 at 8:29pm 5 Comments

I'm considering adopting a lovely very 'alpha' 3 yr. old (retired) male Irish show dog that was rejected as being too large by judges. He has never lived in a house, just a kennel. Any advice for converting him into household pet?

Julia this is an interesting question about a dog being afraid of thunder... my field trial was afraid - very afraid since his early age, but it is extremely rare to have thunder in Northern Ireland, not sure we have it even once a year... MC was also afraid of fire crackers and all those noisy bang bang party gadgets. Darwin my show dog is absolutely not concerned about any kind of big noise as long as it is not just beside him... not sure if being a show dog or a field trial is relevant? I would suggest you to open a blog with this question as we really have some interesting debates on this site.
Also, to open a blog about this toy you are mentioning, this seems very very interesting. As a psychologist of course my first reaction was - B.F. Skinner and his pigeons experiment, but our Setter friends are so clever and playful I am sure they will enjoy it. Will do some web search now ... :-)

I am sorry to have missed you, too. When Stephen and I talked in Louisville I realized that you could be a very good home for Birdy. You can see her here (scroll down to Russell's Mythodical GetN Birdy) http://mythodicalirishsetters.webs.com/ourdogs.htm . Her mother is one of the few living dual champion Irish. Cassie's dogs are generally very moderate and extremely kind; she has no kennels, so they are house dogs.You might try finding her under members an send a friend request (Cassie Allen). If you are an Irish afficiondo, she is a great contact - very straight, with a good eye.


I don't know if Stephen managed to take any pictures of Se, but you can see him on the Mythodical website under "photos" - He has his own album (Mythodical Ruadhan Seaghdha) as well as the one called "Indianapolis" (a show we went to in the middle of winter).


Dudley is a handsome old gent, isn't he? He is lucky to have found you!

Thank you for your friend request and your comment. I am glad you liked my photo. You have been in Vienna many times - for holiday? Hope you like this small Country. Unfortunately I have never been in Atlanta, but twice in other staates of US. Are many IS in Atlanta? I love Irish Setter and therefore I think here in Austria are to many ...

Sorry for my bad english. Please cuddle Dudley from me. All the best Barbara

not many IS in Sydney or Australia for that matter. In the 60's and 70's very popular but people do not understand them therefore the breed has slowly deminished. Good in a way because it seems now people who should have them do have them if you know what I mean. Years ago you would see them lost or wandering the streets.

Hi! Oh you have "Salzburger Wurzeln" :-) and you read and speak German! So I can write in german? Though I live in a Flat (at least for now), but (am Rand von Wien) only 5 minutes away from the big "Wienerwald", so Tiny and I are twice every day for a walk in the Forest and she can run and romp enough - I am sure more than many others. And she is at office with me every day.
Vielen Dank für dein Kompliment (Augenweide) - es freut mich sehr, dass dir meine Photos gefallen. Liebe Gruesse Barbara

Hi!! Glad to answer your question!! RUA is pronounced as you would in english really!!? and is the Irish for red or red hair. There is another word for red in Irish, Dearg,(pronounced JARIG) but that would be for the colour red as in fire engine red!!! Not a linguist, so hope this helps;o))
