Good with Children: Unknown.
Good with Dogs: Yes, good with our 4 Setters, but probably needs a gentle dog companion who wouldn’t knock her over…
Good with Cats: Unknown.
Housetrained:Yes, has an occasional accident if not watched like a hawk :)
Crate trained: Yes, she sleeps in crate at night with out any difficulty.
Leash trained: Yes, she walks well on a leash.

Activity Level: GiGi is a very low-keyed, laid back kind of lady
Fence: GiGi does not need a fence for her activity level. She would be fine with short leash walks. When in the yard, she must be on lead or in a fenced area since she has hearing and sight problems

Behavior: GiGi is a sweet, gentle-natured girl. She likes to be around her people….she usually follows us when we leave the room. She likes to be petted and brushed…just a real love of a girl!

Medical History: GiGi came to us quite under weight at 32# and is up to 39# now. We’ve been working on trying to find dog food she likes to eat….she is a picky eater…typical Setter…!!!
She has moderate sized cataracts, which causes her to have difficulty seeing in dimly lit conditions.
She also seems to be quite hard of hearing….
And lastly, she is unable to sit due to her lumbar-sacral (back) arthritis issues.. We are giving her Rimadyl daily for this.
GiGi is spayed and up to date on vaccines.

Foster Comments: Gigi is a very sweet girl who loves to be with her people. She gets along very well with our 4 Setters, but it would be nice to have her placed in a less active household because of her health issues.
She can go up 2-3 stairs by herself but is unable to navigate anymore stairs than that by herself without being carried. We have wooden stairs so they are of course way too slippery for her to try and go up and down….
She sleeps at night in a kennel without difficulty and is housebroken……but must be watched carefully. She will come to the back door when she has to go to the bathroom, so she is pretty predictable.
She naps a lot during the day because of her age in a nice comfy bed in the living room….
She is a very sweet soul who would love to live out her final years with a loving, caring family or companion.

Adoption Fee: $125.00

Foster Location: Kearney, NE
In most cases volunteer transport is available for your adopted dog to within 2 hours of your home.

Above and Beyond English Setter Rescue is not a shelter, but a group of volunteers who are committed to finding excellent homes for the dogs in our program. All of our dogs are living in foster homes in states across the country. Often times a dog is not geographically close to where an adopter lives. When possible, transport assistance is provided at no cost to the adopter. Our transports are coordinated by the Above and Beyond ES Rescue Transport volunteers and driven by volunteers. For more information and to complete an application, please visit the Above and Beyond English Setter Rescue website,

About Our Rescue Group...

Mission Statement

Above and Beyond English Setter Rescue's goal is rescuing English Setters in need of new homes. While in our care the dogs will be vetted, spayed or neutered, and evaluated in foster homes, where they can learn love and
stability and we can determine which type of home would work best for each dog. Once adopted Above and Beyond volunteers will be available for the dogs and adopters for each dogs life, with advice and support. Our mission is
to put English Setters welfare first and foremost. We are a non-profit, charitable 501(c)(3) organization. 100% of your donation goes to help English Setters in need and is tax deductible.

Each home will be carefully screened to determine whether an English Setter is the correct choice. Home visits will be done as well as reference checks, no dog will be placed before it's time. Every dog rescued by Above and Beyond English Setter rescue will remain in our care until the correct match is found for that dog. English Setters in Above and Beyond's care will never be warehoused. Each dog will live in a home situation (no kennels or living outdoors) as either the ONLY foster dog or one of 2 foster dogs, so a true evaluation of each dog can occur before adoption.

We also will assist shelters housing English Setters by courtesy posting the dogs they have available and if the shelter agrees we will speak to potential adopters about the breed and help with screening.

For more information on our mission, or for assistance, please contact Michael Myers or anyone listed on our Contacts page.

Our Adoption Process...

When an application is submitted, you will receive a phone call and an initial interview. The next step is to check your references. Then a home visit will be scheduled, if you are approved through each of the prior steps. Every dog in A and B's program is available until an approved adopter speaks for that dog. No one can speak for any dog until they are approved and we do NOT hold dogs for anyone. We have had people who were disappointed that they did not get the dog they initially applied for, but the ones who hung in there with us would not change a thing now that they have their A & B Dog.

Please Note:
1:You must be at least 21 years old to apply to adopt an A&B Setter.
2: Incomplete applications will not be accepted.
3: Proof of heartworm preventative and testing is required (via vet records or receipts) for current dogs and recently passed dogs.
4: Signature is implied and assumed on e-mail & online Adoption Applications.

Above & Beyond English Setter Rescue's adoption fee is $300.00 for dogs one year and older, $395.00 for puppies and dogs under one year. We have made every attempt at keeping our adoption fee the lowest we could despite the rising costs associated with spaying and neutering, immunizations and other related routine care. In some instances our adoption fee’s never comes close to the care associated before an adoption of one of our dogs takes place. We do feel however that our adoption fee is still less then if the adopter had to pay these expenses out of their pocket. Also remember we include the first year of complete pet recovery protection for your dog with your adoption fee through Pet Shepherd.

Above and Beyond does have dogs in various areas of the country. Do not be discouraged if you are not in our core areas of PA, NJ, MD, DE, NY.See the link below for more information. Seniors and Special Needs dogs are usually less.
