    ROSE

    rescue
    Breed: English Setter
    Sex: Female Female
    Age: Adult
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: English Setter (medium coat). Rose is a lovely female english setter, approximately 4-5 years old. She is kind and gentle, and gets along with every dog in her foster home. She enjoys snuggling on the couch but also likes the great outdoors. She will happily spend the afternoon hunting for lions and dragons (well, ok, kitties and lizards) in the back yard. She has a strong prey drive and is able to climb 4-ft high fences, so she needs a securely fenced area with at least 5-ft fencing to enjoy her sunny days. She is fairly low-energy but is not a couch potato - she still needs to burn off some "setter crazy" every day. Because of her high drive, she probably won't ever be a good candidate for off-leash activities. Rose can sometimes be a little skittish of sudden, loud noises but is not shy or skittish around people. She loves people and is usually the first to greet strangers when they come into her home. She is quiet when indoors, is housetrained, and does not chew inappropriate items. Overall, Rose is a pleasure to have around and will make somebody the perfect companion!

    DESTINY/DESY...

    Breed: English Setter

    Posted Breed: English Setter (medium coat). Desi (Destiny) has come a long way since being rescued. When she first came she was having some trouble with balance and strength. She got a good nail trimming and did a lot, and I mean a lot, of stretching and has been improving every day. Desi has some old injuries that are not slowing her down. She is blind in one eye but doesn't miss a thing. She has an old knee injury, but her leg seems to be getting stronger every day. Everything is new and exciting to her. She loves being out in the yard and watching birds and people. She is getting the hang of riding in the car. She was scared the first few times and even ducked when we would go under an underpass. She doesn't pull when on a lead but is still learning how to walk well on a leash - a work in progress. She has met chickens and a pet pig. She loves the chickens and will watch them all day. She was curious about cats until she crossed the line and got cat slapped! Now she pays no attention to them. She gets along well with her foster brothers as long as they don't try to rough house. She will let them know when to back off. With people she insists on snuggling and giving kisses. Desi makes herself at home wherever she goes. She is house trained and stays in a crate while I'm at work but that's just because of her foster brother who can bother her sometimes. Everyone eats together but in separate corners without any problem. You can eat on the couch and she doesn't beg. Desi loves kids and is one of the sweetest dogs I've ever had the privilege to meet. She doesn't need to be super active and is more than happy to have some yard time and plenty of snuggles. Do you think you could be the person to give her her furever home?

    LIBBY

    rescue
    Breed: English Setter-Unknown Mix
    Sex: Female Female
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: English Setter / Mixed. Libby is an approximately one year old female English Setter mix. She came to us housebroken and well socialized with people, so at some point she had someone who cared for her. Libby is good with both the elderly and young kids. However, she does like to jump (a behavior that we are addressing) so until she gets her jumping under control, it might be best if she is in a home with no small children. Libby is your typical adolescent and is described by her foster mom as a combination of sweet, smart and sass. It is that sass that still needs to be monitored closely. Just because she has hit that one year mark does not make her free and clear of puppy mischief. Any dog, regardless of age, is capable of mischief if not monitored and trained properly. Libby is very trainable and I am sure that once she has the proper guidance and knows her boundaries, she will blossom into adulthood very nicely. Libby is crate trained, but only spends a few hours at a time in her crate. She also goes to doggie day care and she does well there playing with the other dogs. She especially likes the little dogs and is very gentle with them. Please let us stress that this girl LOVES to play. She is a big eater and tends to be a food guarder, probably a result of being emaciated at the time she was rescued. The dogs in her foster home are fed in separate places in the house. She is being taught to sit for treats and respect the one-at-a-time rule. Libby is really a great dog that just needs some training and guidance in her “teenage” years. She loves to be kissed and cuddled. Obedience classes would be a great way to train and bond with your new girl - she is certainly up for the challenge! Without a doubt, once she matures, she will be a wonderful addition to any family. If you are looking for a young female dog to add to your family, please consider Libby!!

    Breed: English Setter-Unknown Mix

    Posted Breed: English Setter / Mixed (medium coat). Mina is a sweet, sweet 1 year old, female Setter mix that has the softest ears on the planet, the most adorable white eye lashes and a crazy tail. Her owner states that she is a very lovable, smart dog, and a definite cuddle bug however, her mom feels that she needs an owner that is home more. Here are a few comments from her current home: Mina really is a very sweet and lovable dog. She puts herself to bed every night at about 10-10:30. I’m up much later, but she knows when she’s done! Mina is wonderful in her crate. She can tell when I’m getting ready for work, which is a different time every day, and goes into her crate, all by herself. Smart girl! Mina loves to curl up beside me on the couch or at night, in bed. She plays well with other dogs – the bigger the better! She will play with any dog who comes over to play. My guess is that she would be happiest in a home where people are home most of the day. I have a fenced in yard, and she spends a good amount of time outside exploring either with my other dog of by herself. Mina is happiest when I’m home all day. She alternates between being a shadow and wandering around outside. If I’m home, she’ll follow me from room to room, and if I’m on the couch, she’ll have her head on my lap. Mina will gently paw me, if she needs attention. She knows sit, shake and lie down and also come, when in the back yard. I have a dog door, and it took no time for her to learn how to use it. (I also have a fenced in yard.) She settles down quickly when people come over to visit. Mina does get along with my other dog just fine during the day, however at night, she gets possessive. I think she’d be happiest with an active family, with or without another young dog. So lets recap – Mina is a sweet, lovable and smart girl that gets along with other dogs, however, she has an issue in the evening when she gets a bit grumpy and tired. Mina is a young girl and she is very trainable. She is not a bad girl, she just needs someone that is home more and can work with her. As I like to tell people, she needs someone with a firm heart and a loving hand.

    MORGAN

    rescue
    Breed: English Setter-Unknown Mix
    Sex: Male Male
    Age: Young
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: English Setter / Mixed (medium coat). Morgan is an approximately one year old cute setter mix. He came to us housebroken and well socialized so at some point he had someone that cared for him. Morgan is a very observant dog and a good watch dog as he notices things that other dogs do not. When he began growling one night, I realized that when the heat came on, it turned the ceiling fan above the grate every so slightly. Morgan was taking no chances that the moving fan wasn't trouble so he gave it fair warning! Morgan is the only dog I have had that actually watches television. Not just notices it, watches it! He spends as long as 20 minutes watching the screen. Morgan does not generally climb things, but we are working on his counter-surfing. Since he is a tall boy, he has a long reach, but with a shake of a can partially filled with pennies, he will stop the unwanted behavior. Morgan is gentle but energetic and he loves to spend hours playing with my other dog. He has never bitten, but sometimes he will sneak in a nip while playing. Morgan would probably do best in a home with another dog. He also loves to play with children and is good with seniors. Morgan is a big eater, probably a result of being emaciated at the time he was rescued. He has been changed to a grain-free food as his skin seems to be a little sensitive so attention should be paid to what he is fed to see if it has any impact on his skin. He is being taught to sit for treats and respect the one-at-a-time rule. This boy loves to chew on his Kong bones! Morgan is crated for up to five hours at a time and he is fine being crated as long as a treat is thrown in for him to settle down with. Morgan is a typical setter boy, in that he absolutely loves to be cuddled and kissed. Morgan loves, LOVES to play. He is a really great dog that can’t help that he is going thru his “teenage” years. Without a doubt, once he is mature, he will be a wonderful addition to any family.

    DOTTIE

    verified

    rescue
    Breed: English Setter-Unknown Mix
    Sex: Female Female
    Age: Young
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: English Setter / Mixed (medium coat). Hello, my name is Dottie III or “Dot” for short. I am a small one to two year old English Setter that is “sweet as apple pie” (or at least that is what my foster parents say). I get along with all of the dogs in the house and understand their boundaries and when to play and when to relax. I love my humans too! So much that sometimes I cry for them a bit when they leave the house. I love to run outside and play in the fenced in yard with the other dogs, but I am equally content being an indoor dog too. One of my favorite places is to be curled up between my foster parents. Speaking of favorites, did I tell you that belly rubs are mandatory? I just love them and require them on a daily basis. My history is a bit unknown. I can’t understand why I was placed in a shelter - I am such a sweet dog. But it was a good thing, because I don’t think my life before then was very nice. I am a very submissive dog and sometimes I cower when a voice is raised or someone moves a hand too fast. I also have to deal with these “things” on my stomach from when I had puppies…they are a little stretched out from all that nursing, but I am sure they will get smaller with time. I also think I need to gain about 5 lbs (I am currently 39 lbs) as I am a bit underweight - oh, did I tell you I am VERY food motivated Speaking of food, I am a curious dog and will go hunting for things to eat that resemble something tasty. I am still learning not to surf the kitchen counters for food. My foster parents know better than to leave anything laying near the edge of the counter where I can access it. If it smells like I can eat it, I will drag it to the floor to be sampled. At the food bowl, I am not aggressive and I eat with the other dogs in the house. I can get a little excited and throw a bit of kibble on the floor, but don’t worry, I will clean that up! I know a couple of basic commands, like sit, but don’t expect me to be well trained. I am super smart and I think that all I need is some basic obedience training. When I am outside, I usually come when I am called, but I shouldn’t be trusted off lead unless I am in a fenced-in area. When the humans want to go outside, I will bolt for the door to be outside with them. I am pretty quick and I have escaped many times into the back yard. I suspect the humans are catching on to my shenanigans though as they have started bribing me away from the door with the promise of food. They have also resorted to holding my collar when necessary. I like the crate but feel abandoned if the room is empty and I will cry for a few minutes. I soon settle down though and see the crate as a positive place. At night I will run into the crate to sleep. My foster parents have let me up on their bed for a couple of “sleep overs” and I did really well. So here is me in a nutshell…If you are looking for a super sweet dog, then I am your girl!In summary, Dottie is a VERY friendly 1-2 year old setter. She is a small dog, barely 40 pounds and, being a young dog, high energy! She shows zero aggression in any situation and is very submissive. She rolls onto her back for tummy rubs all the time and we are convinced she will wear her tail out, it NEVER stops wagging. She does counter surf a little so we try to keep anything tasty under lock and key. Other than that and, her brief disapproval of being crated when we leave the house, we really cannot think of any issues at all. Her future humans need to be watchful of her though as she is a bit of an escape artist. Despite our having a fenced yard with four other dogs who apparently lack her determination, she managed to be on the outside looking in…at them looking out at her, how, we will never know! She will make a wonderful pet and we would recommend a household where she is not regularly left alone for the full day. This is a very social dog who is attached to her humans and so not suited to a house where she is left alone when the humans are at work for 8 hours etc. That being said, she has grown very much accustomed to the crate and is happy being in there, falling asleep after a few minutes protest! We have left her alone uncrated for up to 2-3 hours with no damage when we return to the house. We are increasing that period slowly as we build trust in her. We are confident that in time she could be left out for a full day once she is comfortable in her new home and understands she hasn’t been abandoned. If she is with other dogs this is even less of an issue. If you are looking for a friendly, playful, smaller setter that has zero aggression and loves nothing more than to sleep in your lap, you just found her!

    RAYMOND

    Breed: English Setter-Unknown Mix
    Sex: Male Male
    Age: Adult
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: English Setter / Mixed (medium coat). Adoption Fee: $325.00. My name is Raymond or “Ray Ray” for short. The vet said I am around 2 years old. I am not exactly sure what kind of dog I am but I sure am cute! I love playing with my foster brothers, going on walks, and my foster parents! It took me some time to get adjusted to my new life because I came from a neglectful and abusive home. I will admit I had trust issues at first but I'm told that now I'm a completely different dog! My foster family was patient with me and showed me how to be a real dog in a loving home! Now I am playful and energetic but also I know when it is time to settle down. I have an indoor crate that I sleep in when my foster parents are away but I am allowed to sleep outside of my crate at night. I sleep 8 hours at night and can hold my bladder just fine. My foster parents let me outside first thing when they wake up. I know to go to the bathroom outside and I have become a healthy eater! I love my dry food and treats. I will do just about anything for one of those! I like lounging around on the couch with you while you watch tv or read a book and on my bed while I look out the window. I still get a little nervous sometimes, especially if I am around people I do not know or am in a new place, but if you talk to me and reassure me everything is okay I will trust you. Cars also scare me when I go on walks but I do love to ride in them! I believe I would do best in a loving home with a brother or sister dog to play with and who can “show me the ropes.” I would prefer a backyard I can run around and play in that has a fence so I am protected from those scary cars. I am a good guard dog and I will let you know if someone is in the house who does not need to be there. I will do what I can to protect the people who love me. If you are patient with me and show me you love me, I will love you unconditionally! My foster family showed me how to love again and I hope you will continue to do the same if I am lucky enough to join your family! I have had all my vetting, heartworm prevention, microchip placed, and I am neutered. I am a great size at 44 pounds. Will you consider me?
