Ben Colman


1982 – 1987

Breeder: Unknown
Owners: Sqn Ldr & Mrs A E Colman

This very handsome boy came to his owners from the ISBC Rescue Scheme, via Battersea Dogs Home, who had originally picked him up, raiding rubbish bins in a back alley. After finding him a new home, he had apparently been returned to the Rescue Scheme, so was very lucky to find himself in another loving home.

Because he was a ‘rescue setter’, his exact date of birth is not known, but it was thought that when he was placed in his final home, he was approximately 4 years old. For the same reasons, his pedigree details are unknown.

He was by all accounts, a real character. His new owners soon discovered that not only did he have a liking for chair and table legs, but he also stole everything he could reach….whether it was edible or not and it wasn’t long before they had to fit catches to the refrigerator doors, as he could open them!
