verifiedPosted Breed: English Setter (medium coat). The first few years of my life were what most people would call offensive. I was part of a backyard breeder's kennel and things weren't the greatest there. I never lived in a house until I came to rescue, but I am learning. I still have a way to go, but I am motivated to live the good life. I am what you would consider a “work in progress,” but let me share what I have learned so far: I've stopped jumping on people constantly but I get excited every now and then and forget my manners. I've learned what 'no' means. I figured out the best place in the world is in a lap. I love binge watching TV and eating popcorn (in a lap). If you hold me then it's doggie nirvana. I'm learning to stay out of peoples way and not get under foot. I've learned that I must sit to get a treat and have all 4 paws on the floor to get petted. I forget this at times, but remember quickly with a verbal correction. If it gets me attention and love I'll do anything to make my people happy! I 'ROO.' If you have never heard a roo - it will surprise you. Now, here are a few things that I have to admit...I still struggle with: I am not fond of going into a crate - a big chunk of hot dog or a bowl of food will get me in without a fight - but, after a few minutes I do settle down. When you let me out I get real excited and zoom around the house and jump on you. This upsets Mom as she says I could hurt her. I counter surf - I want everything you have to eat because I was so hungry for so long. I am excellent at begging - again Mom doesn't like it - I don't get anything but I try. I am working on my house training - I now go outside without back in. I haven't figured out how to let my people know that I need to go out and I go in the house sometimes. When I lived outside I just went when and where I wanted to – I am finding out that is not acceptable in a house. This upsets Mom and that makes me sad. Please remember, I am a “work in process.”Tags:

verifiedPosted Breed: English Setter (medium coat). Miles is an affectionate, smart and athletic 7 year old boy that was found as a stray in Gulf Coast Florida. Miles is neutered and current on all vaccines. His behavior and color suggest that he's mostly an Irish Red and White Setter. Miles is housebroken, trusting and a very sweet boy. We have found the key to Miles happiness is exercise. Miles needs an active family that loves to hike or run or perhaps someone that is willing to train him to hunt. Miles needs an outlet to burn off his strong desire to run. If you can get him into a regular exercise routine or train him to hunt, you will be getting yourself an amazing companion! Miles is not afraid to show his love towards his human people. He likes to be close to you, sometimes even wrapping his body against you to get as close as possible. Miles will moan when he gets ear rubs and he makes extended eye contact with you – pulling your heart into his heart. Miles loves everyone that he meets. When he goes on walks he gravitates towards the neighborhood kids. He is fine with little hands on him. Miles has also been very friendly to every dog he has met, large or small, although he has no interest to play with them. Miles currently lives in a home with an older English Setter and he is very respectful towards the other dog. Miles has a high prey drive and wants to chase critters. He has successfully chased all the chipmunks out of his foster dad’s garden! We are unsure about cats at this time, but pretty sure if off leash he would chase them. When Miles arrived into rescue, he had just had 2 non-cancerous tumors removed from his belly. Scarring from that surgery is still currently healing. Poor Miles had his ups and downs with all of that, but he is on his road to recovery now!! Miles’ rib cage is prominent and he has a very small waist – he is not underfed, he is just built that way. High metabolism along with his desire to run, keep him trim. Miles has escaped over a four foot tall fence so fencing for him needs to be taller or maybe even an invisible fence. Miles really needs some acreage to run and burn off his energy. If Miles does not burn off his energy he is inclined to destructive chewing, looking for ways to escape and crying. If you are an active family looking to add a new family member to your home, Miles just might be the perfect fit for you!! Now a few words from Miles - Miles is the perfect name for me because I run for miles! I can leash-walk for a little while, but really - I just gotta run. Hard, fast, and regularly. A large fenced yard is fine for a day, a dog park is better, but a real run is what I need! I don’t really know what it is about running that I love so much, but I just feel like I need it and if I don’t get it, well, I tend to act out. Yes I will cry, and jump and do whatever I can to get you to take me for a RUN! I am skinny guy, but there's nothing wrong with me. My ribs show no matter how much I eat. It's just my nature to be sleek, lithe, aerodynamic and stunningly handsome. I get along great with every person and dog I meet. Once when a little dog bit me, I didn’t even react. Oh and I adore little kids that put their hands all over me. And my family – I adore them! My people get nudges, head-butts and wrap-around body hugs on a regular basis – I feel they need to know how much I love them. Can you please help me find my forever family?Tags:

verifiedPosted Breed: English Setter (medium coat). Duke is a 8 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 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 the 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?
