Han Solo
Meet SWESR’s sweet pocket senior, Han Solo. This loveable senior Setter is about 12 years old and hasn’t had the easiest life. Han’s life has taken a turn for the better since being rescued by SWESR. He’s now living in a loving foster home, getting along well with his foster dog companions, and even patrolling his new yard looking for birds and squirrels. 

Han needs a fenced yard that he can explore at his leisure and he will let you know when he is ready to come inside. He has a low prey drive and no interest in challenging a 4-foot fence. So far, Han has shown little prey drive, so he may be a candidate for a home with inside cats. 

Han is a quiet boy who may have some hearing loss, but that doesn’t keep him from being a wonderful companion. We have not had him in a home with children and we think he would prefer a quieter home with adults and possibly older children that would be gentle and not expect him to play and entertain them. He loves human attention and is a seriously “hands on” kind of Setter who enjoys lots of petting, lap time and massages. He has very few demands other than lots of love and a warm bed.

Han is house trained, crate trained, fully vetted, and currently in a foster home in Dallas TX. He is a candidate to adopt or furever foster where SWESR provides for his ongoing medical needs. He is not a candidate for flying or a volunteer transport that is more than a days drive away.
