Socialization/training: Dallas loves people, is good with kids. He could use more obedience training. He loves to snuggle!

Good with Children: Has been very patient with our 5 year old granddaughter.

Good with Dogs: He loves to play with our female dog. Dallas is having some arguments with two of our male dogs. He is trying to move up the pecking order in the pack, which the other dogs don’t appreciate. He could be an only dog, but he would prefer to have one other dog, preferably female or submissive male, in the home.

Good with Cats: Unknown. We don’t have any cats.

House trained: Yes

Crate trained: Unknown.

Leash trained: He should use a Gentle Leader harness. He’s very big and strong. He is very active on the leash and can be challenging to walk without more training.

Activity Level: Like most setters, Dallas is playful outside and pretty laid back inside. Will stop almost any activity to have his ears scratched. He enjoys chasing tennis balls, but doesn’t always bring them back.

Fence REQUIRED: We have an Invisible Fence. He was already familiar with the IF, and learned it immediately. For safety, a sturdy fence or Invisible Fence is needed.

Behavior: Dallas has spent most of his life in a family setting. He was turned over to A & B because his family had an infant who was allergic to him. He bonds to his people quickly, and likes to be with them. He is very calm inside, and is generally active outside. He is very interested in squirrels.

Medical History: Neutered; heartworm Negative, up to date on shots; on Flea & Tick preventative and HW preventative; microchipped. He has a history of allergies, suspected to be food allergies, but has not shown them in the foster home. He is on allergy medication, which our vet recommended he continue for 30 days after he is transitioned to a new home, and that his need for ongoing medication be re-evaluated at that time.

Foster Comments: Dallas is a very sweet boy who needs a permanent home to enjoy for the rest of his life. He acts younger than 8 years old, and has a lot of life left in him! He is very loving and seeks attention from his people. Dallas is very enthusiastic about riding in the car, but is not a good passenger unless he is harnessed in. He tends to jump around the car. He can be quite talkative, making sounds inside, outside and when in the car. He has a rather high bark for a dog his size. He’s not overly barky, but can get triggered when my other dogs are triggered.

Foster Location: New Haven, Vermont
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.

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) 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.
