Activity Level: Loves to cuddle.  Plays nicely with other dogs.  Content to stay in the house. Prefers that you are in the yard with her.

Fence:  Needs a fence. She is not as much of a roamer as most setters.    

Behavior: She loves to sleep with you. She loves to lie in a bed. But if you tell her to get in her bed, she will.  She is a sweet caring dog.  Sadie has all the loving traits of an English Setter. Sadie loves to ride in the front seat of the car where she can sit up and look out.  

Medical History:  Up to date with all shots, negative for heart worms. Has some skin allergies that make her scratch.  Needs to be on flea and tick medication to reduce her scratching.  Currently taking hydroxyzine to reduce the scratching.  Currently on Nexgard for flea and ticks and Triheart for heart worm prevention.

Foster Comments: She is a sweet, beautiful setter.  She wants to be loved and know she is safe.  She will need time to adjust to a new home and she will be less clingy.  She belonged to one person until she came into foster care.  She is easily startled by young children, so is better with older children.
