My name is SIA and I am deaf but that doesn’t lit me.
I’m a 2.5-year-old English Setter who came from Lebanon where I was found tied in a bag, and thrown away like a piece of garbage, possibly because I was not a good working dog. I am extremely sweet despite my unknown past and my fur is as soft as velvet!
I’m an eager girl, social with people, kids and most dogs, (but can be in my own world sniffing and exploring).
I enjoy playtime and cuddles and make my foster family laugh every day with my silliness.
I currently live with a dog-savvy cat and the cat is the boss in our relationship. If there is a cat in my new family, please know it will take me time to work out our relationship.
I am house-trained, but I have my routine outside and need time to relax to do my thing. I would thrive in an active home that can provide me with ongoing structure and training.
Hiking, biking, and brain games would all make me a very happy girl.
I would make a good family dog with older kids, or with a couple. I am very food-driven which makes training easy. However, when I’m outside, the distractions can be too much for me to focus and may choose to not obey.
A securely fenced yard is a must for me as Setters are known to follow our noses if left unattended. Knowing my breed would be an asset to my new family!
