Chai English Setter Puppy Male
Chai is a friendly, tail wagging, happy and I should also mention really sweet little guy. Hes went with me to work a couple of times and was a perfect gentleman and a hit with all. He's still in the puppy stage and likes to do some chewing, so he needs to be enticed with toys/bones to redirect him from the inappropriate chewing. He will sit before getting a treat and his food at breakfast/dinner time.Good with Kids: There are no kids in Chai's foster home, but he seems friendly with everyone and would probably be fine with kids.Good with Dogs: Chai gets along well with the male and female resident dogs. He loves to run and romp with his foster sister in the backyard. He did bark a lot at them when 1st introduced, but it didnt take long for him to find out they were fine and werent going to hurt him.Good with Cats: UnknownHouse broken: Yes, but with him still being a puppy he does have an occasional accident.Crate trained: Yes, but doesnt really care for it. Goes in easily with a treat. Chai is crated when I leave for extended amounts of time and when fed his meals. Sometimes during the evening, I will put him in his crate and he will go to sleep, but when its time to go to bed he does not like to stay in it. I then move him to my bed where he usually sleeps through the night.Leash trained: Chai does very well on the leash considering how young he is and not having any experience with leash walking. Im working on taking him on small walks and I think with consistency he will pick it up quickly.Activity Level: Chai is a pretty laid back and mellow pup. He loves to play and run outside with his foster fur sister until both of their tongues are hanging out. Rides well in the car (has gotten carsick a couple of times but seems to be doing better). Jumps out of the car just fine but still working on jumping in.Fence: A physical fence would be the ideal situation for him, but I would consider a foster home that would commit to daily multiple walks and/or daily dog park visits.Behavior: Chai has been a well-behaved little guy. Hes a typical puppy and does have his puppy moments, but overall has been a mellow and laid-back pup.Medical History: Chai has been neutered, UTD on all vaccinations, and is on flea/tick and heart worm prevention.Chai originates from Greece where Leishmaniasis is endemic. He was removed from Greece as a puppy, so it is unlikely he would ever develop Leishmaniasis, but the parasite can remain dormant in the system for many years, so potential adopters must be willing to commit to annual testing for the next 7 yrs. Typically, the test needs to be sent to a special labrador, but any regular veterinarian can draw the blood and send it to the labrador. The test typically costs $120-150.Foster Comments: Chai is a cute and happy little guy. He gets along with other dogs, loves chewing on toys/bones and being with his people. He loves to play with his foster sister so I would like to find him a home with another fur sibling(s) to play with or a family that would include him on walks, rides and going places. He will melt your heart and a wonderful boy that will make a nice addition to someones family.
