GEORGIA is a 7 year old, 55 pound, English setter who has been an indoor pet her entire life.  Georgia is an orange belton with a lovely expression and the softest eyes you've ever seen. She recently faced the indignity of having her lovely long locks shorn; however, her beautiful coat will grow back with time.

Georgia is a very loving, calm dog who loves to go on hikes, walks, or anywhere in the car. She will heel nicely by your side if you ask her to, and knows other basic commands.  Of course, she is housetrained. She loves people and kids and will happily curl up next to anyone on the couch to watch TV.  Georgia loves to rest her head on you or on another dog while she sleeps. She also likes to jump up on her people to say hello but she is so gentle and sweet when she does it, it's hard to discourage her. It seems more appropriate to just go ahead and give her a hug!

Georgia is spayed, microchipped, heartworm free, up-to-date on shots, and other than a thyroid issue (which is easily controlled with medication), she is a very healthy girl.

Georgia is being rehomed because she was having a conflict with a young terrier who lived in her home. The terrier was picking fights with Georgia who, after tolerating it for just so long, decided to stand her ground. Because of this, Georgia should go to a home with a calm easy-going dog or no other dogs. Georgia has a history of getting along well with many dogs, both male and female. Georgia's foster home has two male setters and one confident female setter. She also lived with a young, exuberant, male foster setter for a while. She has gotten along well with all these dogs without the slightest hint of trouble. She enjoys playing and napping with other dogs.

The only species Georgia has had difficulty with is cats! She can't stop looking at the cats in her foster home, and if they run, she gives chase. My confident, dog experienced, older Siamese has no trouble with her, so Georgia would do best in a home without cats or possibly one very dog-savvy cat. Young cats or kittens might prove too much a challenge for Georgia.
