Posted Breed: Irish Setter / Chocolate Labrador Retriever (medium coat). Aisin was a feral (wild) dog living outside a factory in London, Kentucky. Born in the wild, she had no social interaction with humans. Factory workers left food scraps outside for her until the factory owners decided to have her shot. A local animal rescue organization, Homeward Bound Canine Rescue and Rehabilitation, trapped her to save her from being killed. Aisin arrived at the rescue frightened, unsocialized and missing much of her fur from mange. She was scared of the kennel environment and was transferred to World Animal Foundation for rehabilitation. Aisin arrived terrified of humans and hid under a bed for several days, refusing to eat or even move. She trembled and defecated if anyone came close to her. After several days she began to come out of hiding for food and water at night when no one was around. After several weeks she slowly began to take treats from humans. After a month she gained the courage to go outside during the day and slowly began interacting with other dogs. Aisin is now house broken, plays with other dogs and follows humans around. She begs for treats and now plays with toys. She will let her caretakers touch her, but is still shy and cautious. She is terrified of a leash but volunteers are slowly working to leash train her. She needs a patient family willing to continue to work with her. Whoever adopts her will need to understand that she'll probably start off shy and timid. She's very gentle, likes other dogs and does well with cats. Aisin is about 5 years old, spayed, wormed, current on vaccines and microchipped. Her hair is almost all grown back in and is now soft and shiny. Aisin is a special dog who deserves to live. She is very low maintenance and will require a fenced yard and other dogs to interact with. Her adoption fee is $150.00.

More About Irish 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.
