Gabe is a tri-color, 4 year old, 43 pound English Setter. He is on the thin side and the vet says he should weigh about 50 pounds. Gabe is an absolute delight! He has been a perfect gentleman since he arrived in foster care. Gabe would do anything for you. He loves being part of a family.
Gabe enjoys having a big yard with critters to watch and chase. He is smart and learns quickly - mainly because he wants to please his foster mom. He will respond to sit and stands still for baths and grooming. About 90% of the time, he'll come in from yard when called. Of course, Gabe is a setter so whenever a bird/critter is in sight, he’s not as willing to come in.
Gabe has a wonderful personality. He is very friendly and outgoing; he gets along great with resident setters (two males and a female) and every person he's met. He is affectionate and likes to lean his head against your face and give gentle cheek rubs. Gabe has not been around children but because of his energy, he would probably do best with kids 8 years old or older. Gabe loves going for car rides and even more so, he loves to go for walks in the park and neighborhood. Gabe is doing well leash walking. He likes to be active.

Gabe does not like to be crated. But that is okay because he is trustworthy in the house. He has never had an accident and doesn't chew. When his foster mom is fixing his dinner, he will put his feet on the counter, but he obeys when told to get down. His foster family is careful not to leave things on countertop because if it was tempting, he’d probably go for it!
If you are looking for a dog to love you and be your companion and family member, Mr. Gabe more than meets those qualifications.
Tracey & Allan Fogwill hope that Gabe will soon be sharing his affection and sweet personality with a loving forever family!
