Our Beautiful 'Border Setter'


View larger image of Buddy

I was rescued from Ireland by the Flatcoat Retriever X rescue because they thought I looked a bit like one.  My mum was an Irish setter and my dad a working farm border collie.  I wasn't wanted though and was dumped on a beach in Cork with my littermates and was the only one to survive.


Now I'm in my forever home in Portsmouth and I have a great life: I love my long walks with my people, especially anywhere near water where I like to paddle up to my shoulders and get thoroughly wet and muddy.  I also love my garden where I patrol daily and lie in the sun on the new deck that my humans have made.  It's got a pond and I can jump and bark at the fish.  It even had something really scary in it which changed everyday and made me bark every time - apparently it was a lily pad making its way to the top - who knew?

Things I love: Walks, chewies, cheese, tickles on my tummy. My mum's art

Things I hate: Lily pads in the pond. Anything that's in a place that it shouldn't be, eg a bin in the street that's lying on its side. I didn't used to like men, but I've got over that now (as long as they don't walk towards me with their hand out).

My favourite walks: Portsdown Hill, Emsworth, Stansted Park

Other pets who share my home: Max an English Setter who I like to boss around. Two cats: Mr Frodo (who's a bit scared of me) and Jinxie (who isn't).
