Can you give a home to an Irish Red and White Setter
The Club’s rescue scheme is here to help any Irish Red and White Setter in Great Britain who may be in need.
We are fortunate as a breed that the majority of our breeders continue to care for their puppies long after they have gone to new homes and will take dogs back if things don’t work out. Rescue is then here to assist and, hopefully, find suitable new homes for them.
Dogs come into rescue for many reasons, some are strays, some are in need of a new home because of their owner’s change or circumstance or illness and, sadly, at times owing to a bereavement, none the fault of the dog involved.
Rescue dogs come from varied backgrounds, some have been the family pet and are used to living in with family and others; some may be working dogs, who have probably been used to spending a lot of time in a kennel amd will need extra care and patience to socialise them.
They will all be traumatised in some way – it is a big upheavel in their lives and all will need homes that are prepared to give them all time, patience and, most of all, unconditional love.
