Crystal is a lovely 7 year old setter.  She is technically a tri color, but there is VERY little brown. Crystal is almost 73 pounds coming into rescue so our main goal was to get her on a diet and get her moving.

She has been walking about a mile or so every day with her foster dad and is doing very well.  She is not bad on the leash and gets a bit better on every walk.  She is, though, still a setter and squirrels and such are a distraction.  She just loves to stroll along and smell.  Everyone that meets her remarks how pretty she is and how happy she is.  She is always glad to get some loving from anyone and everyone from young kids to seniors and everyone in between.

Crystal seemed a bit down the first couple days in her foster home, it took her a few days to adjust to her new life.  But she really came around after she was allowed to sleep on the bed at night. 

In a true "big sister" way, Crystal is bonded to her adopted 3-year old sister ACES Trixie.  She really seems to care about Trixie and takes care of her.  Trixie will often lay on her sister and that seems to make Crystal very happy.

With a little grooming, Crystal's coat will be STUNNING.  With a new diet and extra exercise, she still has a lot of life left in her.  She is an absolute sweet heart.

Holly Christensen & Steve Krogulecki hope that pretty Crystal will find a loving forever home where she can happily sleep on the bed and stroll around the neighborhood.
