verifiedPosted Breed: English Setter (medium coat). The first few years of my life were what most people would call offensive. I was part of a backyard breeder's kennel and things weren't the greatest there. I never lived in a house until I came to rescue, but I am learning. I still have a way to go, but I am motivated to live the good life. I am what you would consider a “work in progress,” but let me share what I have learned so far: I've stopped jumping on people constantly but I get excited every now and then and forget my manners. I've learned what 'no' means. I figured out the best place in the world is in a lap. I love binge watching TV and eating popcorn (in a lap). If you hold me then it's doggie nirvana. I'm learning to stay out of peoples way and not get under foot. I've learned that I must sit to get a treat and have all 4 paws on the floor to get petted. I forget this at times, but remember quickly with a verbal correction. If it gets me attention and love I'll do anything to make my people happy! I 'ROO.' If you have never heard a roo - it will surprise you. Now, here are a few things that I have to admit...I still struggle with: I am not fond of going into a crate - a big chunk of hot dog or a bowl of food will get me in without a fight - but, after a few minutes I do settle down. When you let me out I get real excited and zoom around the house and jump on you. This upsets Mom as she says I could hurt her. I counter surf - I want everything you have to eat because I was so hungry for so long. I am excellent at begging - again Mom doesn't like it - I don't get anything but I try. I am working on my house training - I now go outside without back in. I haven't figured out how to let my people know that I need to go out and I go in the house sometimes. When I lived outside I just went when and where I wanted to – I am finding out that is not acceptable in a house. This upsets Mom and that makes me sad. Please remember, I am a “work in process.”
