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). Hello, I'm Duke (although some of my friends call me Dukie.) I'm a 7 year old, neutered male english setter. I have lots of energy but I'm very well-behaved in the house. I lost my home because of my bad behavior around small dogs. Since I got into a fight with a small dog a couple years ago I can't stand them. I slipped out of the house and bit a small dog that one of our neighbors was walking on a leash. The neighbors insisted that I go and my family sadly sent me away to their friend who is also my breeder. My former family and I did lots of things together: running together, going canoeing, hunting, cuddling... I miss having a family. I do not like small dogs, cats and larger male dogs-until I get to know them. I cannot go to a home with small dogs or cats. I am a strong, athletic hunter and very focused but my hunting partner has to stay alert in case there are other dogs around. I am very good at coming when called if another dog shows up and tries to challenge me. I go to my hunting partner and hang out with them. I'm now kenneled there with 2 female roommates and we have fun but I miss being with humans. I really miss my humans. I get along very well with people of all ages. I have had obedience training and have very good manners in the house. I love to jog or run outside although I'm always keeping an eye out for something to hunt. It works best for me to be in a harness. Once I'm inside it's time to relax. I would be best in a home with a nice fenced in yard so I don't have to worry about defending against small dogs or cats. I can spend hours outside looking, chasing and hunting so you don’t even have to take me for walks if you don’t want to, I wear myself out. I love to cuddle and am happiest either in your lap or snuggled up right next to you. I don’t always like other dogs. I loved my foster sisters and we play a lot every day. With other dogs maybe I’m just afraid but I have to act tough and bark and growl at them or maybe feel like I have to protect my human. Right now I am so eager for human attention that I sometimes try to jump up when first greeting a person. I'm reminded about the "Off" command and I do my best to behave. About You: You would need to be able to provide an outlet for all of my energy. Last but not least it would be great if you want a dog that will cuddle with you especially after a nice long run of course! Please contact my foster mom for more information about me: Mary-Beth Esser firstname.lastname@example.orgTags:

verifiedPosted Breed: English Setter (medium coat). About me: I was found as a stray in Huntsville Alabama, so no one knows for sure about my history. The doctor says I’m about six years old, and am very healthy. I am very small for a Setter, I weigh about 35lbs. I have lots of energy and LOVE to hunt. I will hunt just about anything, including cats so I absolutely cannot go to a home with cats . I would also really love to go to a home with a nice fenced in yard. I can spend hours outside looking, chasing and hunting so you don’t even have to take me for walks if you don’t want to, I wear myself out. I do really love walks though, and my foster mom takes me on runs up to five miles and it’s no problem. Once I’m inside and it’s time to relax, I love to cuddle and am happiest either in your lap or snuggled up right next to you. My social life: I don’t always like other dogs. I loved my temporary foster brother and I love my current foster brother and we play a lot every day. I just spent a couple of nights at a babysitter and I really liked and played with two of the other dogs, but I didn’t like the big one too much. Maybe I’m just afraid but I have to act tough and bark and growl at him. I really like people, my foster mom takes me to running events and I meet a lot of them at once and several of them pet me and I like that too. I’m not sure about kids, my foster mom doesn’t have any and we don’t seem to be around them too often. That being said, I am very protective of my caregiver and I don’t like people walking up to us uninvited. I get very nervous when single strangers approach me unexpectedly or startle me. This makes me bark and jump at them. My foster mom says I would make a really great watchdog for someone. About You: You would need to be able to provide an outlet for all of my energy and drive to hunt. You should be patient with me as I learn the rules of your house, especially rules about the kitchen counters! It would be best if you were willing to continue my leash training and my socialization, especially introducing me to strangers. Last but not least it would be great if you want a dog that will cuddle with you all day while you binge watch House of Cards. I LOVE binge watching days! Oh after a nice long run of course! That being said, I am very protective of my caregiver and I don’t like people walking up to us uninvited. I get very nervous when single strangers approach me unexpectedly or startle me. This makes me bark and jump at them. My foster mom says I would make a really great watchdog for someone.

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?
