More About English Setter Breed
If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

      HUNTER-ADOPT...

      Breed: English Setter-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Ramsey, NJ
      Posted Breed: English Setter / Mixed (medium coat). My name is Hunter and I am a 5-6 year old male Setter, originally from Huntsville, Alabama. My foster mom named me Hunter because of where they found me, but she says my name fits especially well because all I care about is hunting! I will hunt anything, birds, squirrels, lizards and CATS! Cats are easy because they are in the house. My mom says I shouldn’t go to a house with cats because I make them crazy. I look forward to meeting you, but I have hunting to do so I’ll let my foster mom finish telling you all about me, and from what I hear I’m pretty awesome. We have had Hunter since June 11 and we have fallen in love with him. Hunter is our second foster, and he did prove to be a bit more challenging than our first. I don’t think Hunter has ever lived inside, so our first priority was house training. However, this task did not prove to be too difficult and he has done really well but, does need to go outside more than our larger dog. We have been working on keeping his front paws off of the kitchen counter and keeping him from counter surfing but Hunter LOVES people food so this may take a bit longer. He is also learning to walk on a leash and loves to go for long walks. I think he would make a great running partner as well; he has a lot of energy. Hunter is definitely a ladies man, but seems to like and trust all people including children. He is fine with other dogs and plays with our much larger Setter just fine. I really think Hunter is a setter mix; he is small for a purebred Setter and his size mimics more of a Brittany. Hunter weighs in around 30 pounds and probably needs to put on a few more. When Hunter arrived into rescue he had been the victim of a flea infestation, but I am happy to report that condition has been addressed. Hunter still needs some fur to fill in around his hind end, but with good food, lots of love, and some time, he will have a beautiful fluffy rear section. Hunter has been checked out by a vet and has a clean bill of health, as well as having already been neutered. Hunter cannot go to a home with cats, but other dogs will be just fine. He loves to cuddle and take rides in the car. I think a home where he would be welcome on the furniture and beds would be best. Hunter is being fostered in Florida.

      FALCOR

      Breed: English Setter
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Ramsey, NJ
      Posted Breed: English Setter (medium coat). Meet Falcor, a sweet, handsome English Setter/Labrador mix. He will be 3 years old on November 11th. Falcor is house trained, crate trained, knows a few commands and is filled with love. He has taken swimming lessons and loves to swim. His webbed feet make him a natural! He loves hiking and camping and sleeps well in a tent. We are hoping to find Falcor a home where he will be shown lots of love and in return he will share the same. He is sensitive to your emotions and will console you if you have had a bad day. He is a great candidate as a service dog for anyone with PTSD or other special needs. Falcor had issues with the Alpha dog in his previous home, and since he can’t talk, we aren’t totally sure who the instigator was. We had a foster home lined up for him and then something came up. He is currently in a kennel and has daily visits with a Better Setter volunteer. While at the kennel, he is working with a behaviorist so we can get a better assessment of his behavior around other dogs. At this point we have to assume that Falcor is not good with Alpha dogs and would need to be in a home with an extremely submissive female or a home where he is the only dog. Falcor is also very curious about small critters, including cats, and has a high prey drive, so no small fur siblings for this big kid. Our volunteer that has gone to visit him daily, states that Falcor is a very lovable boy that has possibly been misunderstood. Please consider bringing this bundle of joy into your home.

      Location: Ramsey, NJ
      Posted Breed: English Setter / Mixed (short coat). This little bundle of cuteness is a 4-5 month-old male rescued from a kill shelter in South Georgia. We aren’t sure what he’s mixed with, but he is adorable and is sure to steal your heart at first sight! At 26 pounds, Gibbs is a growing boy and may become a large dog. A typical puppy, Gibbs is high energy but does enjoy down time and cuddling. He is crate trained and sleeps 8 hours at night. He is working on potty training and is doing well! He is good with other dogs, cats, and children, and loves the dog park! Gibbs is a verbal boy and is not shy about telling you that he wants to play. He also loves squeaky toys and bones and is good about knowing what he should and should not chew. He responds well to “No” but has a weakness for cat food! He is a quick learner and is already learning “Sit.” Gibbs will come to you neutered, up to date on shots, on heartworm prevention, micro chipped, and with lots of love to give! He would love to go to a family with children and/or other dogs so he can play with them. Gibbs loves attention and will respond well to the love you show him.

      DUKE

      rescue
      Breed: English Setter
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Ramsey, NJ
      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?
