Socialization/training: Reece is a very happy pup and gets along great with every dog he's been introduced to. He is a sweet and affectionate boy that loves to cuddle. He knows sit and we are working on "off" and "lay down" and "go to your bed". He's very smart and picks up the household routine quickly. He is totally crate trained and although he doesn't love his crate, he will go in quite easily and he doesn't bark or fuss when he's crated. I think he will be extremely easy to train with several other commands. He's eager to please.

Good with Children: GREAT with kids! Seems to understand the difference and is gentle and doesn't jump on little ones. He's been living with a 5 year old and we're amazed at how gentle he is with him even while playing with toys.

Good with Dogs: great with dogs. Very polite and submissive.

Good with Cats: No -reported to be cat sharp and is not to go to a cat home.

House trained: He arrived not house trained but I do believe we are at 100% now, but he will likely need a refresher in a new environment.

Crate trained: Yes - no issues

Leash trained: Needs a lot of work here - he's young and strong so he would benefit from obedience training. I did run with him and he learned the dog walking attachment on my mountain bike immediately and LOVED it! He'd be a great running/hiking companion.

Activity Level: He's still a pup so he's very playful and energetic but he settles down nicely. If you're sitting, he'd like to be on you lap.

Fence: I think Reece would do really well with traditional and also invisible fencing. Leash walking probably won't be enough to expend his energy. He's going to be easy to train on recall - he does know his name and comes when called about 75% of the time currently. He will need more exercise than leash walking or a tie out.

Behavior: Reece is very affectionate and a cuddler. He's attentive, curious and smart. Very sweet and definitely has a nose on him! I haven't seen him skittish about anything or startle at any noises but someone must have raised a hand to him - he puts his head down a little when you reach for him. I'm already seeing that fade some though. He is very trusting.

Medical History: Considering the neglectful state he was found in, he's a pretty healthy pup!!!! He arrived in foster care free of parasites, intestinal worms and heart worm negative but did test positive for Lyme. He needs to finish out his antibiotic for that and then should be rechecked again in a few months. He was neutered on 10/12/16. Reece has a pretty pronounced over bite but nothing that causes issues - his teeth are otherwise healthy and clean.

Foster Comments: Reece is a great dog and every bit what's typical of a setter - sweet, smart, athletic, attentive, affectionate and birdy! If I didn't already have 2 dogs he'd be a foster fail no doubt! He's going to be even more handsome when his coat fills in. We've truly enjoyed having him and he plays great with my other 2 dogs which are both female.

Adoption fee: $300.00

Foster Location: Medina, OH
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,

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.
