Home for Irish Setter Lovers Around the World
I've had a couple of suggestions in recent threads to start a discussion about rescued setters. I see we have an Irish Setter Rescue Dogs Group on here that I hadn't noticed before so I guess they'll have some tales to tell.
I haven't done anything as dramatic as the rescue of an abused dog, but we have taken friends' setters permanently into our home when their circumstances have changed and have loved them dearly, but it's a slightly less emotional, but no less caring relationship than the heart tie you get from hugging an eight week old puppy.
So I'm standing back and awaiting your stories, especially if you found your dog living in dangerous circumstances - what happened then? Or did your rescue come to you via an organisation which rehomes dogs - did you have to pass inspections and have the right facilities before you were allowed a setter? Any members of the UK Irish Setter Rescue Group here?
Are you longing to give a home to an unwanted dog but don't know how?
What a heart warming story Maggie, brought a lump to my throat.
