My story

Socialization/training: Dahlia loves people! When I have visitors, she is very persistent in wanting their attention. Eventually she will revert to her favorite indoor activity, looking out the front door for rabbits, squirrels, or walkers. Dahlia will come when called indoors, but outdoors it depends on whether she is ready to come in. She is focused on hunting chipmunks and will not be distracted from that. She is a good hunter. She was recently cat tested and with one she interacted really nicely with nose to nose tail wagging, the 2nd cat swatted at her so she moved away quickly and never showed any interest in her after that.



Crate trained: Yes. I kept her in a crate overnight the first two weeks but now she sleeps on the couch with my 20 lb terrier mix. I still crate her when I am not home although I’m leaving her out for short periods of time. She is not destructive, but she is still a puppy and loves to steal shoes or socks or my other dog’s toys. She doesn’t chew them up, she just likes to take them.



Leash trained: Dahlia is leash trained.  I have been using the gentle leader, and she does quite well.  She has been running with the neighbor, and does very well.



Activity Level:  Dahlia is very playful with other dogs and does well in a dog park setting too. She and my grandson’s pit bull ran around after each other in the back yard until they were exhausted. In the house she and my terrier do play with toys and also chase each other. She would do best in a house with a like-sized dog to play with. A bonus would be if the owner was a runner. She would be a good running companion. She does take naps during the day and is pretty quiet in the evenings.



Fence: Dahlia definitely needs a 6’ fence. She has climbed over a 4' fence, so she will definitely need a taller fence than that.



Behavior: Dahlia is a cuddler. She likes to have people around her. She is attentive when in the house.



Medical History: Dahlia is a very healthy, happy dog. She has Ehrlichia as a result of not being on flea and tick medication in her previous life. She is being treated for it with antibiotics. She is spayed, microchipped, up to date on vaccinations and on monthly heartworm prevention.   



Foster Comments:  Dahlia is a very sweet girl. She is still in the puppy stage so should not yet be left alone in the house, but that will pass. She likes squeaky toys and chews. She will be a great addition to an active family.



Foster Location: Kansas City, KS



Volunteer transport can be arranged in the Continental US within a 1,000-mile distance between adopters & foster home. If interstate transport is provided for your adopted dog, there will be an additional charge of $50.00 for the required Certificate of Veterinary Inspection (“Health Certificate”).  Typically, we are able to transport your adopted dog to within 2 hours of your home. *Dogs can be adopted outside the 1000-mile transport distance; however, adopters must be willing to either fly their adopted dog, drive to a location within the 1000-mile transport range, or make independent transport arrangements for their adopted dog. Transports to far Western states, from Eastern states, may have additional restrictions.

Additional adoption info

Application process: 1. Submit on-line application 2. Vet references checked 3. Interview call 4. Home visit (virtual) An applicant is not guaranteed the dog they apply 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. 4: Signature is implied and assumed on e-mail & online Adoption Applications. Above & Beyond English Setter Rescue's adoption fee is $450.00 for puppies and dogs under one year. $400.00 for dogs one up to three years $350.00 for dogs three to six years $250.00 for dogs seven to ten years Reduced fee on a sliding scale for dogs 11 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 most instances our adoption fee 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 up to 1000 miles and within 2 hours of your home.

More about this rescue

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 dog's life, with advice and support. Our mission is to put the dog's welfare above all else. 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.
