Southwest English Setter Rescue
This page features all the beautiful rescue dogs Available to Adopt Now. You'll also find our preliminary postings of dogs that are 'Just Rescued', are 'Under Evaluation', will be 'Available Soon', or with a 'Foster-to-Adopt' home. We'll post more details on these dogs very soon. On occasion we will also show Courtesy Posts (dogs that are available to adopt through another rescue group that we'd love to help find their forever home). Please click on a picture or name to go to a dog's own webpage with pictures and their story. You can learn about our Virtual Foster program by clicking on one of the hearts in the photos below.

Sir William - In a Foster-to-Adopt Home
William is a handsome 2-3 year old boy, rescued from a TX shelter. He is healthy and fully vetted. He did not have a chance to interact with people or other dogs much prior to rescue, so he is learning to trust and socialize in his experienced foster home in OKC.
Sadie came from the Strasburg CO seizure via the Boulder County Humane Society. Sadie is a gorgeous dark liver color Munsterlander and is estimated around 10 years old. Sadie loves her people, men and women. She is not suitable for a home with other dogs or cats. She is in a Grand Junction, Colorado foster home...more Cecil is about 4 years old, neutered and up-to-date on all vaccines. This lucky boy is in a foster home in Sierra Vista, AZ with SWESR Hank Williams. He will be looking for an adult only setter experienced home that is familiar with our sensitive breed...more Ten year young Shug was rescued from a backyard breeding situation by a Good Samaritan in New Mexico who contacted SWESR for assistance. Shug is in a foster home near Austin, TX. She’s great with cats and good with other dogs as long as they respect her space. She’d love a home as an only pampered dog...more Ella is 2 years old and will weigh about 60 lbs when she is at her ideal weight. Her owner could no longer care for her so she ended up in a SoCal shelter. She is in a SoCal foster home. She will require another active dog in her adoptive home. She has strong ES prey instincts and will do best in a Setter experienced home with a good size yard...more Daisy May is a 9 year young Llewellin Setter, rescued in the Phoenix area. She’s housetrained, good with other dogs and people as long as she is with an experienced person. She has some touch sensitivity so she is not recommended for a home with kids. She is in a foster home with our trainer in Las Vegas, NV...more Eleven year young Ryder was rescued from a N TX shelter with skin and ear issues and has been in a Frisco TX foster home near our Vet so he can be regularly treated. Ryder looks and feels so much better. He is a typical sweet, goofy, Velcro boy. Ryder is good with other dogs and kids but is not recommended for a home with cats. He is a candidate for SWESR’s Furever Foster Program so we can continue his skin and ear care. He is a big Setter boy at about 60 lbs...more Cally and Maddy were rescued from a shelter in New Mexico. They are sweet girls, probably sisters and are 9.5 year old bench English Setters. We feel the best thing for these girls is to stay together when they are adopted. They are in a foster home in San Diego, CA....more
Jak - Just Rescued
Cute, sweet little 1 year old Jak is in a foster-to-adopt home near Austin, TX. He is being treated for a bad skin infection and getting to know the resident English Setter and cats. Check back for updates!
Raz is a 4 1/2 year old boy and things are finally looking up for him. He was seized when 75 dogs were removed from a hoarder in CO in December 2015. He was immediately adopted by a woman that lived in an apartment and had no understanding of the exercise and training needs of a Setter. She returned him to the shelter 16 months later after giving up on Raz and his escalating behavior issues. Rescue only, he was urgent and SWESR and Lux Love Rescued were there for him. He is currently with our trainer in Las Vegas, NV...more
TIllie - Available Soon
Tillie is about 7 years young. She knows sit, come and stay and will benefit from an adopter that would enjoy going to obedience training with her. She weighs about 45 lbs, is friendly with people and may need another active dog in the home, but is not suitable for a home with cats. We will know more after our Intake Coordinator assesses her. She is temporarily in Oklahoma City OK for vetting and assessment. Check back for updates!
Sweet Oliver is 8 years young and a smaller Setter boy at about 44 lbs. He is a youngster at heart, playful, enjoys toys and likes playing tug of war. He is good with people and medium to large dogs but would not do well with cats. He is in a foster home near San Antonio, TX...more
