I need help with my 12(?) year old Gordon Setter (mix?). My career circumstances have changed, making it hard to provide all she needs. She is young and energetic enough that she needs a long brisk walk daily (she prefers at least an hour), but old enough that she pees a little in her sleep (not bad enough to need medication, but enough that there’s now a bed-wetting sheet on the couch where she lounges.)
No aggression issues, very sweet. Definitely a character, who knows what she wants and asks for it – so, consistent, gentle discipline is necessary for reminding her to not be too bossy. Between her breed and personality, she’s a wanderer, so requires a fenced yard, and must be leashed for walks.
Contact me if you’re serious about loving and spoiling her 90 – 110% as much as I do.
Did you find help or a new home for your dog? I have 3 kids and could not take on dog ownership right now, but my kids would love to have a dog in their lives. Send me an email if you still need help and would like to talk this through some more.

Thanks for asking Sheri. Still no success re-homing, so meanwhile we can organize some dog time for your kids. I’ll send you email to arrange things.
