Trooper (aka Super Trooper) is a wonderful sweet orange boy that gets along with everyone. He’s been a joy to have at his foster home. At 4 years of age and around 50 pounds, he is well-behaved, house trained, has his basic obedience training (he will even shake your hand) and is a loveable companion.  He wants to please his people and is a quick learner.

Trooper settled into the routine of his foster family very quickly and has gotten along really well with his setter foster brothers. They will play chase in the yard.  He is great with children and is good with younger kids. He’s found his feline foster siblings to be interesting and worthy of a bark and a good chase from time to time. He’s getting some coaching on proper behavior with the cats and is learning to ignore them, but he would need continued training to nicely share his space with a cat.

Trooper is a quiet boy in the house. Like many dogs, he will bark if the doorbell rings or if another dog starts first, but is otherwise quiet. He’ll whine at the door if he needs to go outside. One thing Trooper really loves is to hang out wherever his people are. If you are in the office, he is under the desk by your feet.  If you are in the living room, he will park himself on the couch next to you. If you leave and come home, he’s wagging his whole body and doing his happy setter roo and a toy in his mouth.  

When he’s outside he loves to stalk the birds at the bird feeder and chase the squirrels around the yard.  He likes a game of fetch in the evenings or a chase with his foster brothers. He loves to go for walks and rides in the car.

Trooper is looking for a forever family that will love him as much as he loves them.


Laura Lin, Trooper's Setter Sidekick, hopes that this sweet boy finds his loving forever family very soon!
