Socialization/training:  Bohdi is very friendly to everyone, as his little “waggy tail” constantly goes when greeting a new human. He has done well with kids, really not paying too much attention to our 3-year-old niece. He has no problem snuggling up to either of our 13 or 16 year old daughters. He certainly has indoor manners, though he did try and counter surf once. He knows basic commands like sit, here, and no, though sometimes his listening ears aren’t always on. Cats are an unknown. Crate trained: Night time – sleeping only, as long as there are treats to entice him to go in there, and then he’s quite as a mouse until 6 am when the Bohdi alarm bell goes off. Leash trained: He does fairly well, though he does pull in the beginning as he is quite excited to go for a walk. By the mid-point, he has gotten that excitement out of him and he walks fairly well, wanting to sniff anything and everything along the way. We’ve used the halter leash, which works great with him. Activity Level:  We take him on a several walks during the day, generally 0.5-1.5 miles each time. After that, he loves to lounge around and sleep. We’ve let him run around our fenced yard several times, but he really has no interest in staying there and we always find him waiting at the gate to go for his next walk. Fence: As mentioned above, Bohdi has not shown much interest is roaming around the fenced yard, so not required, provided his new home loves to take their dog for walks. That said, it should be a secured fenced yard, as when we first brought him home, he continued to look for avenues of escape. That ceased once he became comfortable in his new digs. Behavior: Sweet, sweet, sweet boy. He loves to sleep smushed up next to his human on the couch. If you get up, more than likely he gets up. He’s a great sous chef, following you from sink to oven. He loves getting his belly rubbed and has no problem flopping down anywhere at all if you start petting him, doorway, hallway, middle of kitchen, family room… More recently, he’s shown an inclination to grab a squeaky toy and prance around from room to room with it in his mouth. Loud noises do not even faze him. He’s a very quiet boy, with the number of times he’s barked can be counted on one hand, including once barking at a water sewer cover who apparently was giving him the stink eye, and another at a bee while he was on the deck. The wagging tail is always a constant when he greets you after you were away in the other room for a minute. Medical History: Bohdi is microchipped, neutered, up to date on vaccinations, and on monthly heartworm and flea/tick prevention. He is currently being treated for enlarged heart with Vetmedin medication, which he should be given each day. He has gained most of his weight back as he was 35 lbs when we initially picked him up. He’s inching his way to just shy of 40 and would love for him to add on a couple more pounds.  Foster Comments: Considering we both work from home, Bohdi should go to a home where he has someone around most of the time. While we are home working, he’s either on the doggy bed right beside my desk or in a chair/couch next to my wife’s desk. He’s such a sweet, gentle boy that a family with younger children shouldn’t be a problem. While we do not currently have any other dogs in the house, he has done well when my Dad’s little terrier was over, and loves to meet/greet dogs on his walks or at the vet.

Socialization/training:  Gus is a very sweet dog, and he loves his humans. However, he has some difficulty getting along with other dogs in the house and yard, & therefore would probably do best as an only dog. Gus has a high prey drive and a lot of energy. He is housebroken, knows several commands (sit/down/off/quiet) and walks well on a halter. Gus does well at the vet and groomer (no dryer) including getting his nails done. He was cat tested at the vet's office and he was very interested in the cat and wanted to smell and would have played but when the cat put up its paw he politely bowed out and moved away, so he might be good in a home with cats. Crate trained: Yes, but makes a lot of noise. Will shred anything in the crate. Leash trained: Walking with a leash and collar, Gus pulls, but walking with a harness works well. Activity Level: Gus is very energetic and playful. Fence: Needs a fence, very prey oriented. Currently in a 4’ physical fence, not invisible fence trained. Behavior: Gus wants to be in the room with you and likes to be petted and lay on you. He does not like to be left alone but has been left in an open room and does well after he settles down with no destructive behavior. Gus is very playful and loves his squeaky duck and pink pig along with tennis balls. He likes to pick up his food dish and carry it around. He is a very happy dog! Medical History:  Gus is a healthy dog with no medical issues. He is neutered, microchipped, up to date on vaccines, and current on monthly heartworm prevention.     Foster Comments: Gus needs to be an only dog in his adoptive home. He is fine on walks as long as other dogs don’t get too close to him. He is prey oriented, so watch out for any birds, squirrels or rabbits! Gus loves his humans, is not food aggressive, loves to play with toys and balls. He is a very silly boy and fun to watch play!

Socialization/training:  Jaba is a sweet girl, she loves to go for walks. Crate trained: Yes. She does very well in her crate.  Leash trained: Yes. Activity Level:  Jaba is laid back and quiet. She prefers being a couch potato or laying by a nice fire in the fireplace. She does get some energy going when she is outside looking for birds and squirrels.  Fence:  Jaba would prefer a fenced yard. She needs to go out every couple of hours to urinate. Behavior: Jaba is an independent girl who is very sweet and loves to hang out while you are working or watching tv. She has a low activity level and is easy to have around. Medical History:  Jaba has a history of drinking large amounts of water and urinating frequently. She has had complete bloodwork including testing for Cushings disease which are all normal. She is microchipped, up to date on vaccines, spayed and heartworm negative. Jaba is on monthly Heartworm and flea meds. Foster Comments: This sweet senior girl will make a great addition to someone’s family. She is quiet and easy going. Jaba has done well with my indoor cats but would chase outside cats. She needs a family that can let her out frequently and would love a quiet home to spend her senior years.

Socialization/Training: Lousy is a petite Greek girl whose personality will warm your heart. She looks for praise and will reward you with her gentle demeanor. She’s quiet, but still playful. Lousy can entertain herself when outdoors with squirrel watching and indoors, lying around near you. She appears to responds better to a soft voice versus a harsh voice or abrupt hand gestures. She is hesitant of men until she gets to know them. Women don’t seem to be an issue. Strangers coming into the house, she will bark and avoid contact. She shows no aggression to strangers. Lousy’s very smart and wanting to please, so teaching her commands is easy. She has mastered sit, wait, stay, down, no, let’s eat, go potty and heel on leash, that she does very well, when it’s just her. Her recall is a work in progress. As long as squirrels are around, I suspect she will continue with the infamous setter’s “selective” hearing. She has freedom in the house and since day one has slept in the bedroom on a dog bed all night. She doesn’t have a signal to let you know if she has to go potty, but seems to have grasped the meaning. Crate Trained: She will eagerly go into her crate for eating, but doesn’t like being left in it. She is a chewer, so no bedding. Only a Nylabone bone or Kong type item is advisable if she has to spend any length of time in it. She can be a Houdini, so make sure it’s locked. She uses her nose to push up on the door and open it. Ideally, I would like to find a forever home for her where she won’t be crated (or crate time will be very minimal). Leash Trained:  Yes. As mentioned above, she is a chewer, so no leash is safe in the car if she’s wearing it. Walking with another dog, she will follow the walk of the other, so if one pulls she will too, but easily corrected. If she sees a squirrel or rabbit, her high prey drive kicks in, as most setters do, so hold that leash tight. She settles down quickly, but will continue to search with her eyes for it. I would recommend a harness and definitely not a retractable leash. Activity Level:  Outside she can spend quite a long time just sitting in wait for squirrels. She has a hunting dog nose and will smell every inch of yard if she catches a scent or thinks she has. She is extremely fast and does zoomies through the yard. She does, on occasion, dig on a whim, but if you tell her No she stops. Inside she is as quiet as a mouse. She lays on a dog bed, floor or couch. She is starting to show interest in getting in your lap, but not the bed yet. Fence:  Required. I would recommend a 4-5 foot fence. An invisible fence is a definite No. Currently she’s in a 5’ chained link fenced yard and hasn’t tried to compromise it. It’s not advisable however to have anything, such as a bench or another means of climbing, in front of it. She would use that to go after a squirrel. Behavior:  She gets along with the resident dog of the house and has tried to snuggle with her and initiates play. Loud noises frighten her and she will come by you to seek security and comfort. Recently she has shown interest in stuffed toys, but sure yet what to do with them. She will take them and put them behind a chair or in another room. Bath time is not her favorite and will take 2 people to bathe her. Medical History:  Lousy had a litter of 3 pups recently in Greece and was spayed before coming to the States. Her weight of 41 pounds is adequate for her energy level and body frame. She tested positive for parasites both in Greece and when she first came here. She was on meds in Greece and here and has tested negative since treatment. She is microchipped and up to date with vaccinations and on monthly heartworm and flea/tick prevention. Her next leishmaniasis test is due in September 2023. Lousy originates from Greece where Leishmaniasis is endemic. She tested negative before coming to the USA, but the parasite can remain dormant in the system for many years, so potential adopters must be willing to commit to annual testing for the next 7 years. Typically, the test needs to be sent to a special lab, but any regular vet can draw the blood and send it to the lab. The cost of the test seems to vary widely by area, but is approximately $150-$250 or if your vet is willing to send the test to a veterinary college lab, cost can be as low as $80. Foster Comments:  Lousy is a sweetheart and loves praises and being petted. She wants to please and is food motivated to learn new things, which she does quickly. I see her perfect forever family being patient and willing to give her the time she needs to feel secure in a new place. A home with a big yard for her to run and squirrel hunt, but also secure for her safety.  She enjoys walks, but isn’t insistent on them. I believe a home with another dog would be beneficial for companionship. If she’s left alone, crating wouldn’t be a good option, unless she has more training. We have allowed her to free roam without issue. As a retiree, she doesn’t have alone time or children around. She’s still a bit skittish around unfamiliar things and doesn’t like quick movements. With that in mind, I feel older children or no children would be a better fit for her. Lousy has been a delight to have and I know with a loving home, she will shine even more than she has already. Patience, love and a calming voice will go a long way to gaining her trust and her security.

Socialization/training: Prince was found as a stray, so little is known about his past, but it is clear that he wasn’t always treated very well. In spite of his unkind experiences, he is the sweetest, friendliest, and happiest boy! He was named Prince so that in his new life he would be treated like a prince, but he could have just as well been named after Prince Charming! People fall in love with him wherever he goes and he gets a lot of attention because of his handsome looks too. He is well socialized, does well meeting new people and dogs, he’s friendly with everyone and he’s a happy boy with a wagging tail. He’s housetrained and very well behaved in the house too. Crate trained: Yes and no. He goes in willingly, especially with treats and does well overnight in his crate, he stays quiet until about 7am. However, he does not tolerate the crate well during the day when I leave the house and crate him, likely because the other dogs still get to hang out and he doesn't want to be left out. I now try to let him to free roam in the house during the day when I'm gone and he does great, he just naps with the other dogs until I return home. I would like to find a forever home for him where he won’t be crated (or crate time will be very minimal) as he clearly prefers to be free roaming in the house. Leash trained: Not well, I don’t think he’s had much practice walking on a leash. He pulls like a typical setter, and does typical setter things on walks (pointing, bolting after squirrels, zig zagging while following his nose). However, he is improving and does much better with a shorter leash with less room to explore. When we took him to a dog-friendly winery and a dog festival, he did well with a shorter leash. With practice I'm sure he would get better, as he's responsive to feedback, but his main exercise should be off-leash activity in a safely fenced area (he’s got typical “setter selective hearing” he won’t come when called if he doesn’t feel like it, so he needs to be in a fenced area when off leash). Activity Level: Price is quite active! He will need to be able to run each day and probably needs at least 1 hour or more of exercise daily. He’s very fit and has more energy than my 5-6 year olds (setter and Brittany), so he’s much more energetic and active than would be typical for a setter his age.  Fence: Required. He needs to be able to run off leash and explore the yard daily to be a happy, well exercised dog. He’s fit and active and loves being able to come in and out of the house with the other dogs as he pleases. He would probably love a doggy door! He is not a fence climber or digger, so a standard height fence is fine for him. A setter experienced home with an invisible fence would also be considered.      Behavior: Prince is an active, happy, sweet, friendly boy and he’s been super easy to have around because he’s so well behaved. He gets along with my dogs seamlessly (sizes 25 to 65 lbs), enjoys playing and running in the backyard with them, and he’s shown no reactivity around food or toys. He’s also tried to cuddle with my dogs, unfortunately for him, they don’t understand what he wants and they leave him without the cuddles. He also LOVES people and seeks affection, even when first meeting someone. Inside the house, he likes to be close to me and will often follow me around. He is a very sweet and gentle boy and his tail is always wagging. He initially didn’t know what dog toys were but he’s starting to show interest in chew toys. He loves being outside and patrolling the backyard or just enjoying lying down or rolling around in the grass! He’s got a beautiful point that he shows off quite often. He’s not scared of loud noises like thunder or fireworks, but when he first got here, he wasn’t sure whether hands would pet or hurt him, so sometimes he dropped to the ground or cowered when I reached out to pet him, wanting affection but not knowing what to expect. He no longer cowers or drops to the ground, I think he’s still maybe a bit hesitant when first meeting new people, but he still approaches poeple with a wagging tail, full of hope of getting affection because he really wants to be loved on! He’s building confidence and learning that people will provide affection and not hurt him, and I've noticed that as time passes, the more and more comfortable and excited he becomes when meeting new people. Medical History: Prince is neutered, up to date on vaccinations, and on monthly heartworm and tick/flea prevention. He came into rescue with a bit of an infection in one of his ears that was treated and he has a small skin tag/growth on his right eye lid that is not a medical concern. He is currently a bit under 40 lbs but his weight should be somewhere between 40-45 lbs, so he still needs to gain a few pounds but he's a good eater, so that shouldn't be a problem. He will also be microchipped before heading to his forever home.      Foster Comments: Given that Prince didn’t have the best experiences up until now, I would like him to go to a home where he will be living the life of a Prince! He promises to be the best Prince Charming and sweep you (and everyone else he meets) off your feet! He would like to go to a forever home with a fenced yard and preferably another dog to play with. He’s used to me working from home, so I would like to find a home for him where he won't have to spend a lot of time at home alone, so that he can enjoy lots of affection from his people and outdoor time in the yard. He’s probably not a good fit for a home with a cat due to his prey drive. There are no children at my home, so I don't know how he would do with very young children, but I think he would be fine with kids as long as they’re gentle with him and respectful. He did fine meeting children in the park and at the dog festival (ages 7-10 years). He’s such a sweet, loving boy, he will be hard to let go. I’m sure he’ll make his lucky adopter very happy!

Lady can be either adopted or she can go to a foster to adopt home to make sure that her new home is a good match for her! Socialization/training:  Lady has made great strides in becoming a family dog. She is still learning how to get along with other dogs. She knows sit and down, and is working on wait. She did very well when she went out to a restaurant. She doesn't like getting in and out of the car but rides well once inside. Crate trained: Yes Leash trained: Yes, she pulls but not badly. The front clip harness helps. Activity Level: Lady is very active outside especially stalking and chasing birds and butterflies. She is very intense with finding and pointing her prey. When inside, she is a calm girl who loves attention, ear rubs and belly rubs. Fence: She is trained to our invisible fence. I do not know about a hard fence, but she doesn’t seem to want to be an escape artist.    Behavior: She LOVES attention. She will climb on the sofa next to my husband and get ear rubs while he’s watching TV. She enjoys being with people. She is very independent and somewhat aloof when not wanting attention and will spend extended time in the yard hunting and stalking butterflies, birds, and squirrels. She will hold a beautiful point for 10-15 minutes.  She does want to be the top dog and would probably do very well as an only dog. She prefers her people. Medical History: Lady is UTD on vaccinations, on heartworm, flea & tick prevention, microchipped, and spayed. Foster Comments: We really don’t know Lady’s back story. She is an owner surrender from an area in SC known for hunting, so most likely a failed hunting dog. She DEFINITELY has the hunting instinct as she hunts anything that moves, from insects to birds. She does not seem to be afraid of gun shots in the distance or fireworks but thunder will set her to barking. Lady wants to be the alpha female. She loves other dogs and wants them to play but also wants them to respect her personal space. With this dominant personality, I would suggest slow introductions to new dogs. She does better with other dogs in open spaces (outside). She was much more dog reactive when she first came to us. I put her on Fluoxetine and it has taken the edge off for her. She has shown no signs of food agression. She will line up with my dogs for treats and eat in the same room without issue. People can take toys or food away from her without any problems but she will protect her toys and personal space with a growl if another dog gets too close. She is protective of her yard and alerts when strangers enter in. She will bark, bark, bark until she's had a chance to sniff the person. She loves the UPS man and greets him waiting for a biscuit. Outside she loves to run and hunt. She is trained to our Invisible fence and has shown no inclination to leave the yard. Inside she is a love bug asking for ear and belly rubs, her big golden eyes just beg you to love her.... She shows no preference for Andy or me and is an equal opportunity lover. Overall, other than barking and the occasional growl, Lady is a very sweet loving dog. I believe with patience and guidance she will be a great family member. She will need a home with patience and strong leadership. I do not recommend small children (she did OK with my 7 yr old granddaughter) or cats.   Foster Location: Edisto Island, SC Volunteer transport can be arranged in the Continental US within a 1,000-mile distance between adopters & foster home.

Socialization/training:  Alex knows his name and comes when called. He knows sit and wait commands. Alex loves people and sometimes gives hugs to them. He is gentle when giving a hug and when taking treats. Leash skills are excellent, very good riding in the truck, does not beg at the table, is not an excessive barker. Alex will take a treat, go a bit then drop it and come back for another. Sometimes he repeats this 3 or 4 times. Depending on how many dogs are in the house, he may not have his stash to eat at his leisure. Crate trained: Alex is crate trained. Because he is not a danger to himself when left home alone, he has not needed to be crated.  Leash trained: Excellent on a leash, no pulling. Activity Level: Alex is a typical older puppy. He walks 3 to 5 miles every day with his foster siblings. Running in the yard, playing chase, playing with toys, playing tug are activities Alex enjoys. He is pretty chill for a setter puppy. Fence:  Alex is fostered in a yard with a physical fence. Training to use an invisible fence is possible, I think. Alex does not have a high prey drive and prefers to be around people. Behavior: Alex is a very sweet and gentle pup. He loves meeting people, rides nicely in the truck, sleeps in bed with his foster parents every night and plays appropriately with a much younger puppy. Alex is fed twice a day and gets very excited for dinner. He will vocalize with yips and some oddly sounding long drawn out vowels! Alex can be a bit shy at times and is still learning that treats are food he can eat. Grooming – baths, nails, ears, teeth, brushing – are tolerated easily and I have begun to use the dremel on his nails without any issues. Medical History:  Alex is microchipped, current on all vaccines, and on monthly heartworm prevention. He was neutered on 9/14/22, had an ear infection that was successfully treated. When Alex came into foster, he was very underweight, lacked muscle mass and adequate strength to be able to run or climb stairs. His left back leg especially appeared to rotate laterally and posteriorly when trying to move quickly. Range of motion was deemed within normal limits by the vet. With good nutrition, lots of exercise and strengthening activities, Alex’s ability to climb stairs and run with a more normal gait pattern and strength has improved. The left front shoulder has a small projection of the scapula we did consult our vet on to be sure there was nothing needing intervention.   Foster Comments: If you are looking for an exceptional young setter to join your family, give Alex a serious look. He is truly a sweet, gentle, easy going young dog who has an old soul. Alex charms everyone he meets by snuggling into them and being gentle. Playing with toys and playing tug are now skills he enjoys! When he arrived, Alex was very underweight, had little muscle tone and mass, was shy and lacked basic play skills. Despite his physical condition, Alex really was the sweetest good natured pup. Once he put on weight, improved his strength and muscle tone, he was able to run with the other dogs and use stairs. We were concerned about the way his back legs moved and wanted to give him time to develop strength and see if his gait improved. Being able to watch Alex spend most of the day playing with a puppy half his size and 1/3 his age has been a joy. They look for each other to share toys and antlers, sneak attack to chase and jump on each other, run thru the house and swipe one of mom’s shoes if possible.      Alex is small for his age and likely will be what we lovingly call a pocket setter! We believe him to be a field bred Llewellyn setter. While Alex can amuse himself, he enjoys being close to people, getting petted/belly rubs, sleeping in bed with us and going for rides. As he has become more comfortable and built trust, Alex has a sense of humor that comes out.   Foster Location: Conesus, NY Volunteer transport can be arranged in the Continental US within a 1,000-mile distance between adopters & foster home.

Socialization/training: Marshall has been in foster home for 5 wks due to undergoing heartworm treatment. He was probably an outside dog prior to rescue and he’s made great progress with house manners. Still counter surfs if not watched but that is getting better. He gets along with the other dogs and cat in his foster home. Crate trained: Yes, he is very good in the crate. Leash trained: Yes, but he does still pull on the leash. Activity level: Marshall is a playful 2 year old and loves to play with the resident 6 month old Setter pup. He loves walks. He is energetic but once exercised, he is more mellow. Fence: A fenced yard is not required for him, but having a fenced yard would be easiest to ensure that he gets his daily exercise needs met. An inivisible fence is also an option, but of course, he would need to be trained to the invisible fence, as he isn't currently trained to that. Behavior: Marshall does like attention and likes to sit with me while I check emails (which is the only time I sit down). Medical History: Marshall was neutered just after being pulled from shelter and before he came to rescue; he was treated for heartworms and finished treatment 9/1. He is still on exercise restriction until mid-October and is going on leash walks but shouldn’t run around until he's fully cleared. He does wrestle a lot in the house with his Setter puppy pal. He is microchipped and up to date on vaccinations and is now on monthly heartworm prevention. Foster Comments: Marshall is a beautiful dog and may be a Setter/Golden mix.
