Hi we are looking for a second dog. We already have an irish setter (from the working side of the breed so about collie height). She is 5yrs old, she loves to play with other dogs, particularly 'chase me chase me' games rather than rough and tumble. My husband and I work full time but have a dog walker come at lunchtimes every day. I also take the dog for a run before work and after work they will get another hours walk (or longer when the evenings are lighter!). We do agility with the setter (for fun really rather than being very competitive!) which she loves. Weekends we go on long walks and she comes with us to horse events (likes walking cross country courses and meeting up with her mates!)

She was a rescue at 10months old, from a hunting home where she had obviously been kennelled (scared of buildings) and had been beaten - scared of everything really. Since then she has become a very confident happy dog who likes to come down the pub with us smile.gif

Would prefer a working breed and not keen on staffy crosses (I know they are lovely dogs smile.gif ) or collies but would look if it were the right dog.

We are in Surrey.

Thank you, I hadn't seen the epsome rescue site before, they both look possible. Have been trawling through the many tears site - I think Bless will be too young. Might have to a trip to Wales to see the ones there

Have you thought of a working type cocker spaniel? There is a lovely 3 year old called Oscar with CAESSR (Cocker and English Springer Spaniel Rescue) and has been in kennels in Woldingham, Surrey since October. I have met him a number of times and he is a loving, friendly dog.

Thank you for the suggestions, I love the working cockers but the site says Oscar can't be left on his own and unfortunately (as haven't won the lottery!) there is a period of time in the morning and afternoon when the dog would be left (obviously with our current girl for company) 4 or 5 days a week.

Also for that reason Many Tears won't rehome to us either, which is fair enough I understand most rescues have similar policies.

Will have a look at the Diana Brindlecombe site - thank you smile.gif

Hello, I am trying to home a labrador, 3 years old, take a look at my post and if you're interested pm me and we can chat more, owner says no good with other dogs but we have took him out and he just wants to play but due to size and strength he needs another big dog to play with

Hi, not been looking at Jack Russells as they are a bit small and most don't seem to play with other dogs that well - but each individual dog is different so do PM me with more details

Still looking - and will update to add that whilst it should be a playful dog, one that is overly boisterous apparently isn't my current girl's cup of tea!
