» Gordon Setter Rescue
The Gordon Setter Rescue is run independently by WAGGNBONE.CO.UK. The dogs available for adoption through rescue come from several different sources, some are turned over to our rescue program because of a change in family circumstances, or because the owners were not prepared for the energy level of a young Gordon.
The rescue dogs and potential owners are carefully evaluated to insure the best possible placement for each dog. The ages of the dogs usually range from 8 months – 10 yearsIf you’re interested in adopting a rescued Gordon, contact us
