This is a dainty little setter named FINOLA. She weighs in at about 35 pounds and is between 3 and 4 years old. She is quite shy and much more sedate than your regular English Setter. 

Finola loves getting attention and will just curl up to you and stay there for as long as you will. As a matter of fact, if you are looking for a lap dog who is a little larger-than-normal lap dog, Finola fits the bill.  Sometimes when I stand at the counter, Finola will put her feet up there -not to counter surf, but to lean into me and get some more loves and hugs.  This girl is about as precious as they get. 

Finola gets along great with my other dogs and ignores my cats. She'll show some interest if the cats get rowdy, but otherwise doesn't even know they are there.  She doesn't even get frustrated with a 20 pound cat that just insists he loves dogs.  

Finola was turned in to the dog pound when her owner moved and left her behind. She is house- and crate-trained, vaccinated and spayed.  Although English Setters, as a general rule, are very sweet dogs, Finola really raises the bar.  I don't think she was treated very well in her former home (well, of course not, she was abandoned) so she can be pretty shy and timid until she gets used to things. 

If you want a dog as a cuddle buddy, you just cannot go wrong with this girl.  I just adore her, but Finola deserves a forever home where she will have her very own family without having to share with lots of other foster dogs.
