  • Traits: Faye has a very warm personality and is very affectionate.

Faye is mostly white and ticked black with a few brown ticks. The vet believes that she is between 3 and 4 years old and is in excellent health. She has been recently spayed and is up to date on all shots. She is on the small side, weighing 42 lbs., and is eating regularly so she might be able to gain a few pounds, but she will never be considered a big Setter.

Faye has a very warm personality and is very affectionate. Even though it appears that she was not kept in the house by her previous owner, she is well behaved inside our house and is housetrained. Faye is confined to her kennel inside the house at bedtime and when we are away. She willingly goes into her kennel when told, so we know she considers it a safe retreat.

Faye likes people including children and does not appear timid to strangers. She just loves to receive attention. She is not high strung but does exhibit a love to run in the backyard chasing squirrels and pointing birds. She obviously has the genetic instinct for birding. Faye is also happy to sit on her pillow on the outside back porch and take in the smells of nature. She gets along well with other dogs and shares her foster home with Molly, an 8 year old Setter, who has shown her the ropes of how we behave inside the house. Now that Faye knows how to behave in a house, she's looking for a home of her own.

UPDATE (11/11)

I just wanted to send you all a picture of Faye in her new home and update you on how she is doing. We adopted her about 3 months ago and now call her Mae. She is adjusting great to her new home in Michigan. She has put on weight and her coat has grown beautifully. She is the most affectionate dog I have ever met and fits in well with us. Her favorite things to do include going for a daily 3 mile run, sleeping in our big ol' bed, watching out the window for birds, and chasing her brother around. Below is a picture of her and her brother Jack, a 4 year old Wheaten Terrier. I think her face says it all... she is one happy girl and so are we! Thank you for her!
