    Default My rescue boy--up for adoption!!

    Some of you may recall that a few days before Christmas, a flea-ridden, skinny, muddy, wet, cold, shivering dog had his nose shoved up against the front door window when I opened it. We took him in, cleaned him up, got him vaccinated, hw tested (negative!), neutered and found him a rescue. A few weeks later, he went on a 2 1/2 day journey from Georgia to Massachusetts to meet his foster family.

    Today, after being with his foster family since mid January, he is finally ready to find his forever home. I'm giddy with delight to see his beautiful face again. Anyone looking for a WONDERFUL English setter? He's a doll!!

    What a beautiful dog! Good on you for giving him that second chance, and yay for the foster family who has taken him in. I'll bet he finds a wonderful home.

    He's so beautiful.....too bad he doesn't like cats . Our previous dog was a setter mix, my mom would go crazy for this guy! Good luck finding a home for him!

    Thanks everyone...I truly wish we could have kept him, but with 3 dogs of my own, I'm stretched a bit thin. I'm so happy that Above & beyond setter rescue could take him.

    Laura...thank you for posting on your FB page, too! They'll arrange transport pretty much anywhere if he's adopted!
