Good with Children: yes
Good with Dogs: yes
Good with Cats: unknown, I suspect so and can cat test if necessary.
House trained: Yes, she will pace & then go to door to let you know she has to go out. *Note details under "medical history"
Crate trained: Yes.
Leash trained: Yes

Behavior: Piper loves to be with her people, male or female. She enjoys laying outside if you are with her. She loves to lean up against you on the couch or bed.

Activity Level: Fairly low key.

Fence: I believe leash walking would be sufficient. Should not be loose in unfenced area though.

Medical History: Up to date on vaccines, spayed & microchipped. She has double dew claws.

Piper was born with luxating hip joints. She went through some hydrotherapy sessions and did increase muscle in her hip area. A&B was gifted FHO surgery for her, so now she should not have pain. Because of being born with irregular hip joints, she has never developed good muscle so she has a funny walk.

* Housebreaking: Piper IS housebroken. She has an issue with occasional incontinence. She has been seen by vets multiple times, with no definitive reason for this condition. It seems to happen more in the evening. She has been on Proin, with no improvement noticed. When given antibiotics, she seems to improve, but then it returns again. I assume this will be a chronic condition, therefore a special adopter is needed to have the mindset to work around this. I believe her personality overrides this inconvenience. We just work around this issue. We have large washable incontinence pads that we put on top of the bed for our evening cuddle time. That solves the problem for us. We have not tried diapers because this does not happen all the time.

Foster Comments: Piper is a little girl compared to my 5 other Setters in the home. She is such a happy girl. She always like to be in the same room as you or even better right next to you.

Because of her hip issues as a puppy, she tends to lay down a lot and instead of getting up to turn around, she tends to spin with her front legs and her back legs dragging behind. She will also twist her body around to look for you instead of moving her body. I believe this is just how she maneuvered as a puppy when her hips were luxating. She can definitely get up and down, just a past habit.

She has become quite the watch dog so will bark at strange sounds or when she wants to come back in the house. Because of this, she would not do well in an apartment or condo with ajoining neighbors.

She loves her stuffy toys as well as squeaky rubber toys and chew toys. It is so adorable when she carries them in her mouth around the house. Everytime she comes back in the house, she goes straight to the toy box for a toy. Therefore, we have toys scattered throughout the house.

I believe Piper would be fine with or without other pets in the home.

Adoption fee: $300.00

Foster Location: Cedar Grove, TN
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, http://www.esrescue.org/Application.html

About Above & Beyond English Setter Rescue

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), 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 anyone listed on our Contacts page.

Our Adoption Process...

Application process:
1. Submit application request application from aanbrescue@gmail.com
2. Vet check and or personal referenced checked
3. Interview call
4. Home visit/check
An applicant is not promised the dog they applied for.
Applicants must complete the application process before speaking with foster homes.
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.

Above & Beyond English Setter Rescue's adoption fee is $300.00 for dogs one to six years.
$395.00 for puppies and dogs under one year.
Reduced fee on a sliding scale for dogs 7 years and older.

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. In most cases volunteer transport is available for your adopted dog to within 2 hours of your home.
