Good with Children: Yes, very good

Good with Dogs: Yes

Good with Cats: unknown

House trained: Not 100%, but getting better

Crate trained: No

Leash trained: Will pull some, but seems trainable eventually...baby steps.

Activity Level: Gunner is very "birdie" when outside and laid back when inside. He needs to be watched for getting things he shouldn't chew. He likes to get socks out of the laundry basket.

Fence REQUIRE: Fence & good sized yard with plenty of trees and bushes needed. He would stay out all day if you let him. He has shown no signs of trying to jump our 4 foot fence, but it's split rail and wire, so he can see what is out there. He has excaped via the front door when people are coming or going, so care needs to be taken until he learns not to bolt.

Behavior: Gunner is so sweet and loves to be with people. he prefers couches and people bed, but will go to his bed when encouraged. he is independent, but also needs a lot of love and encouragement. he has a short attention span and is almost like training a puppy. Everything seems to be new to him. He is just recently interested in playing with balls and toys.

Medical History: Gunner is up to date on vaccines, neutered, heartworm neg. He is being treated for hookworms & still needs to gain a little weight before travel to adopter. Will be retested in early December & should be able to go to adopters then.

Foster Comments: This is a wonderful dog. I believe he needs as much running and outdoor activity as possible to keep him out of trouble when he is indoors. he eats well, but is still very thin and needs good quality food.
I think he would be ok as a single dog, but also seems very comfortable having a doggie buddy.

Foster Location: Frederick, MD
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.
