Trace is a very happy-go-lucky kind of guy who is pretty delighted about everything that comes his way. He is enthusiastic about food, playing, food, petting, food, car rides, new stuff, and of course, food. It gives his people companions a lift to encounter Trace's cheerfulness and enthusiasm. You can't help but smile when Trace is around.

Trace is a young, approximately two years old, tri-color English. He is mostly black and white but has brown spots on his legs and face. He is a very handsome guy. He has a square head and open face, broad shoulders and chest, wide hips and nicely proportioned feet to match. He looks like a solid dog, but he only weighs about fifty pounds. He has medium-length feathering which is pretty to look at but not so long as to get tangled in things. He has a lot of spots which are dark and well-formed and resemble a dalmation's.

Like most young male setters, Trace is very active. He loves to run and chase the other dogs and be chased by them. He will need someone who is committed to exercising him every day. Once he's had his fill of running in the yard, Trace is usually quiet in the house. He does occasionally break into a loud play with his foster dog family, but he doesn't mind being told to take it outside. He curls up on his dog bed when he is in the house or lays quietly and chews on his toys. He loves to snuggle too, and he will cuddle up and sleep with anyone who lets him.

Trace has a streak of mischief. He loves to steal the other dogs' toys and run away, which is a clear invitation to chase him. If the other dogs get tired of playing, he will return the toy, but as long as they are willing to give chase, Trace keeps just out of their reach. Trace can be a little goofy at times. He runs up on the porch so fast he slides when he tries to stop and oof, out go his feet from under him. He just gets up and laughs and takes off for more fun.

Trace is a very good minder. He has limited obedience training but does know how to sit. He would benefit from an obedience class with his forever family. He does naturally mind pretty well, though. He is house-trained and usually comes when called. He seems smart and learns fast.

 Trace is going to make someone a great companion. He loves to go for car rides and is very people-oriented. He is active and fun and affectionate. He would love to come and hang out with you and be your buddy.
