Tess's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, purebred, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.

Tess's Story...

Our foster dogs live as family members in the foster home until chosen for adoption.

This is Trixie.

Tess has been used as a hunting dog her whole life. She's never been anyone's pet. She has settled in nicely as a house dog. She hasn't had any accidents in the house, which is amazing since she has been in a kennel her whole life. She has been spayed and is heartworm negative.

Tess is a doll. She gets along w/everyone and everything, including the cats. She is a big cuddler too. She just loves to be with her person. She is definitely not an alpha dog and if a dog snaps at her, she walks away. She has a great disposition.

Outside Tess is a typical setter. She is always looking for those birds...or butterflies...or pretty much anything that moves. She stops and points and does not hurt the animals.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Tess, a Cincinnati English Setter dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a English Setter for sale in Cincinnati, or seeking a English Setter dog from a breeder in Cincinnati.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Cincinnati already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Cincinnati breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even English Setter breeders who help with English Setter rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Cincinnati paves the way for another one to be saved.
