He’s scared of men after his experiences at the hands of the hunters who owned him.

Now SNDogs wants to find a forever home for the Setter called Fallon.

“A lot of the dogs coming from Spain we find are scared of men,” said Jessie Bascombe, who is currently fostering Fallon.

“We think that’s because it’s the men who tend to beat them.

The two-year-old pooch who is a popular breed used for hunting in Spain came to the charity in April, after being found in a pound.

“He’s quite lucky to have survived that and made it to the pound,” continued Jessie.

Fallon can be quite shy of people at first, and likes to take some time getting comfortable to new people.

“But once he knows you he’s very loving,” Jessie added.

“He likes cuddles and a fuss, and likes to be right by you. He’s a quick learner and eager to please, so he can be constantly under your feet.

“Fallon loves being with somebody.” Jessie continued.

“He always gives me a little howl in the morning to say ‘hi’, because he’s so happy to see you.”

The pooch is fine to be left on his own and can also live with other cats. He can be scared of noisy children so is best suited to a home where there aren’t young children.

“He would also benefit from being with at least one other dog in the house. But it would have to be a very calm dog,” said Jessie.

Fallon loves going for long walks and running free in a secure field.

“It’s his all-time favourite thing to do, and he’s just so happy and relaxed there.

"He’s just a bit of a goof ball really. He will make the most awesome buddy for someone,” added Jessie.

SNDogs runs a foster organisation, where homeless and rescued dogs are looked after in a network of volunteer homes.

It asks for a £200 donation for each dog adopted, to help it cover the cost of previous care.
