Socialization/training: Trinket was originally a stray pup and then kept outside in a concrete kennel with the people that had her. She was never allowed in the house or given much attention. During the short time she’s been with her foster family, Trinket has really blossomed! She loves the life of an indoor dog, eating 2 meals a day, getting treats and belly rubs, toys to play with and a dog bed to sleep on for the first time in her life.

Good with Children of what ages: Trinket is still learning not to jump on people so probably best with children over 5. She still has some of that puppy clumsiness about her.

Good with Dogs: Yes! She’s very playful, loves to chase and play hide-and-go-seek in the bushes with her foster sister. She’d be ok as an only dog, but is very playful and I think would love the company of another young dog to chase around and tire each other out.

Good with Cats: yes, may chase out of curiosity but has shown no aggression. Trinket has been hissed at and swatted by the resident kitty so she’s being more respectful these days.

House trained: Yes, Trinket has only had one accident in her crate the first day here, none since then, but she’s still a pup and we take her out regularly.

Crate trained: Yes, she settles down nicely but would rather not be crated all day since she she’s a puppy and wants to run and play. She was kept in an outdoor kennel and now that she knows what a backyard is like, she’s happy to be outside with her foster family or following them around in the house. She sleeps in her crate at night and is crated briefly during the day when no one is home. She doesn’t bark but may give a very pathetic whine to let you know she wants to be out. In the morning, she waits patiently to be let out. She enjoys having a Nylabone or Kong toy with a little peanut butter to chew on when she’s crated. We would love for her to go to a family where she doesn’t have to be crated all day.

Leash trained: She does very well on the leash for the short time she’s been with her foster family!! She only pulls hard when she sees a bunny or squirrel, but really seems to enjoy her daily walk. She zigs-zags a little, which is a typical Setter trait, but goes at a nice pace, not too fast or slow. Trinket is very sociable and she wags her tail and wants to greet everyone she sees.

Activity Level: Trinket is very laid-back and a lower- energy dog when she’s by herself. When she’s with another dog, she’s more medium energy, she loves to run and play. In the house, she’s curious about things since she was kept outside, but she’s not very high-energy. She loves her chew toys and will lay down with them and chew contentedly while watching us. She enjoys walking around, checking things out, trying to figure out what the TV is and looking out the window. She’s starting to enjoy sitting with people and having her tummy rubbed. She loves attention!

Fence REQUIRED: (Physical fence or invisible fence) Trinket was kept in an outdoor concrete kennel and didn’t know what to do when she was first put in our backyard. Now she knows she can run free and play to her heart’s content. Trinket will chase a ball, and we just started working with her on bringing it back to us.

Behavior: Trinket is happy to play with another dog outside or follow us around inside the house. When her curiosity is satisfied, she’ll lay down on the dog bed with her favorite toy and relax. Since she’s a mix, she doesn’t seem to have the typical, non-stop high-energy that a young setter would have. She has a great temperament and seems to match her energy level to those who are around her. She’s also very smart! She learned how to “sit” after just a few practices and given some treats as a reward. (She is treat-motivated.) Trinket was a very popular at the vet’s office, everyone raved about how cute & smart she was and how well-behaved.

Medical History: Trinket is spayed, up to date on vaccines, microchipped, HW neg. and kept on flea/tick/ HW preventative. She’s very healthy and a good weight, since she’s not quite a year old, she may get a little bigger.

Foster Comments: Trinket is sweet, lovable, smart, fun-loving and sociable. The worst thing we can say about her is that she likes to get into mischief in the backyard if not watched closely. She’s fascinated by the flowers in the containers and has done some re-arranging of the plants while her foster mom was pre-occupied. She grabs logs from the wood pile and runs around the yard with them. In the house she sticks with the nylabones and chew toys, but for some reason, she loves exploring the backyard and finding sticks and chewing them up. We also have to watch the lawn furniture because she’d like to chew them if given a chance, but this is typical for a 7-8 month old pup. She’s a really nice dog and going to make some lucky family a wonderful pet.

Adoption fee: $395.00

Foster Location: Central Illinois.

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.

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.
