    LUCY II

    Breed: English Setter-German Shorthaired Pointer Mix
    Sex: Female Female
    Age: Young
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: English Setter / German Shorthaired Pointer / Mixed (medium coat). Looking for a lively, fun-loving pup to join your active family?? Lucy ll may be your girl! Lucy II is a 10 month old setter/ pointer mix who came into rescue in March of this year. She has been spayed and is current on all vaccines. Lucy is an active, energetic little girl who loves to play! Her favorite toy is a woven rope toy which she carries around with her everywhere. Lucy is a very affectionate girl, but being a puppy, she's not quite a lap sitter or a cuddler. At this point in her young age, playing is her goal in life! Lucy loves to run, so a fenced yard is a must for her. She's also a great hunter of critters, especially insects including butterflies, moths, and bees! However, birds are her favorite and she will point them, chase them, and jump to try to reach them! She watches the sky for them! Lucy likes cats we think, but is so playful we keep our elderly cat separate from her as Lucy's prey drive is strong. We would not recommend she be in a home with any small furry pets due to her high prey drive. Lucy gets along with the other dogs in our home, and is friendly with the neighborhood dogs she has met. This cute puppy is working on learning basic commands: She knows “Lucy, come!”, and she has mastered sitting for a treat, but without a bribe sitting is out of the question. Lucy knows “off”, and is learning “out” for the times she steals our shoes and wants to make it a game. Lucy is learning how that being a counter surfer is not a sport that people find charming. We are teaching her “no bite” as she can be a little mouthy when playing with us. Leash walking is getting better every day, but she still tends to pull, and this silly pup can wind herself up in the leash because she's so active and playful. Lucy is most fond of her foster dad and loves to be where he is, but so far she loves everyone she meets, and especially gravitates toward children. However, since her play is sometimes rough and little pups have sharp nails that scratch, we feel it might be best to place her in a home with older children. We've recently started to work on agility games with Lucy to channel some of the high energy in this pup. Since she loves to run and play, we think she'd make a great agility dog! If you have an active home and you are looking for an active dog to keep up with you, Lucy may just be your girl!!

    LINDY

    verified

    rescue
    Breed: English Setter
    Sex: Female Female
    Age: Adult
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: English Setter (medium coat). Miss Lindy is estimated to be 8 years old. She is a gorgeous lady! Are you looking for a setter that roos? Here’s your girl. Miss Lindy roos every morning when her foster dad leaves for work. She sure loves her foster daddy!! She is good with her foster mom but there is a definite affection and respect for men. She is the same way with our adult sons when they come to visit… it’s very sweet to see. Lindy loves toys and walks well on a leash. She is, however, very picky about whom she likes when it comes to her other foster siblings. Lindy definitely wants to be the alpha dog in the pack, but she has not won that spot at her foster home. She gets along well with the pack leader, Darby, as you can see from her photos. As for the other foster siblings at her home, they have learned respect for each other. Anyone interested in Lindy that currently has dogs needs to know that it will take some time, patience and extreme supervision before everyone will mesh. Lindy is also food aggressive when fed with the other dogs but is very gentle if you feed her in a different location or in her crate. She cannot share a water bowl either. Lindy does well when we feed her treats by hand and she will wait her turn with the others when we share our morning toast. Lindy did well when her fosters’ small grandchildren came for a visit, but again that was with a very close eye. We think she would do well with older children that would understand and respect her space. She has great house manners and has not had accidents in the house. She sleeps quietly in her crate at night and when we are away from the house. She loves to be outside and also loves to hitch a ride in the car where ever you are going. Lindy will sit when instructed and will also shake hands, but stay and lie down are still a work in progress. She understands the meaning of NO and we are working on keeping her from being a counter surfing. Lindy’s foster home does not have a cat but we are guessing she would NOT do well with a cat. Lindy is a great watch dog as she hears everything and will bark to alert you. Her health is excellent and she is super sweet and easy to LOVE. We are thinking she would do best in a one dog home; however, she does really like to play with other dogs, but only on her terms. So, if your home already has a dog just know you will need to take it slow with our Miss Lindy.

    HILDA

    verified

    rescue
    Breed: English Setter
    Sex: Female Female
    Age: Senior
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: English Setter (medium coat). Hilda is estimated to be a 9 year-old girl from the country and is ready to retire living the good life! We think she must have spent her younger years roaming the countryside, as she was found as a stray and didn't know how to walk on a leash. If you have a heart for seniors, this girl if for you! She is low maintenance and does not cause a lot of commotion in the home. She gets along with cats, and tolerates her 12-month-old foster brother, Gibbs, although she'd rather not play with him. She is housebroken, does not get on furniture, and absolutely LOVES to ride in the car. She actually prefers to take naps in the car parked in the garage. We often leave the door open for her so she can come and go as she pleases. It's her form of a big crate! Hilda is very sweet and loves affection, but is mostly sedentary at her age. She does like treats and rawhide bones, and has bursts of energy where she can be playful. She is good at being alone outside of the crate and can stay inside for a whole workday (8 hours) without any accidents. Hilda is aggressive about her food bowl and does best when fed alone or away from other dogs. Her teeth aren't as straight as they used to be, so it takes her a little longer than other dogs to eat. It does take her a little time to adjust to other dogs in the home, but she seems to not mind the company once settled. She does well when fed treats by hand. Hilda is looking for a loving person or family who can give her the retirement home she deserves. She is spayed, up to date on vaccines, and on heartworm prevention. She will come to you microchipped and ready to relax!!

    DUKE

    verified

    rescue
    Breed: English Setter
    Sex: Male Male
    Age: Adult
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: English Setter (medium coat). Duke is a 6 year old neutered male English Setter. He was an owner surrender, because he was not comfortable in a family with young children. Duke gets a bit nervous when a person or dog gets in his personal space when he is lying down and can be a bit grumbly. We think that he may feel as if he is going to get hurt by being stepped on or sat on. While in foster care, Duke did well when our 12 year old granddaughter came to visit. He was happy and relaxed like a true gentleman. We feel that Duke would do well with kids that are old enough to understand and respect his personal space. Duke came into rescue being heartworm positive. During his treatment, he had an adverse reaction to the medication used in the injection. He is now on a long term, slow kill treatment for the heartworms. Duke also has an old injury that is non-repairable; he has a bilateral tear to the ACL on his right leg. This tells us that he has had some fairly significant pain in his past, which may require arthritis meds in his future. Duke lives in a foster home with other dogs and he does well with all of them. He also lives with an indoor cat. When Duke is inside, he ignores the cats, but, on the other hand, when outside, if a cat runs he may give chase. I think it is safe to say that Duke would do well with a cat if that cat was strictly an indoor cat. Outdoors, Duke is a little more prey driven. For instance, Duke is not chicken friendly at all, and he has worked his way through a wire fence or 2 to get at the chickens. Because of his increased prey drive outdoors, we feel it is best that Duke have a home with some type of a physical fence. This boy is super sweet and he does enjoy being the center of attention. He is a talker and he will give you a long drawn out ROOO to let you know that he has to go outside or he thinks it is time to eat. Duke is not crated when we leave the house and he has proven to be respectful and trustworthy. When you return home, he will be waiting for you with more ROOO’s and his happy dance Do you have room on your couch for Duke?

    Posted Breed: Pointer / English Setter / Mixed (short coat). Phoebe has not had a very good life so far. She was purchased at a garage sale and dumped at a high kill shelter shortly afterwards. Thanks to some wonderful people who help the animals at that shelter, Phoebe made it out alive. She will be looking for a home to call her own where she will be loved and cared for. We will learn more about her as she adjusts to her foster home life. Check back for more information on her.

We have a very important job, keeping the yard free of squirrels, birds and lizards. I love to chase a ball, but I don’t bring it back. I am deaf so I keep a very close eye on my foster mom, who is teaching me sign language. She has a special leash for me so other humans know that I am deaf, so they make sure I see them before they touch me. I have a very active smeller and my favorite thing to do is to go outside and put my nose high in the air and sniff. About you: Someone to take me for car rides, lunch dates and long walks.

He is crate trained, but does not have any behaviors that require me to crate him while I am at work. He is independent but also loves attention. He is at my side or near me at all times, watching for commands. We are working on leash training. He loves everyone and is socialized with children and other dogs. I was told that he was cat-friendly at the shelter. This beautiful boy is up to date on shots, on heartworm prevention, micro-chipped and ready for his fur-ever family. I am deaf shots, on heartworm prevention, micro-chipped and ready for his fur-ever family.
