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 need to be an only dog 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.”

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?
