Amelia is a cuddly girl who had a rough life before coming to SWESR. She was a stray—emaciated and with heartworms. Through the double miracles of love and veterinary medicine Amelia is now a happy English Setter ready for her forever home.

Amelia is a typical Setter who hunts critters while outside but settles in quietly when inside. She is a velcro dog and will follow her person around the house. Amelia is house trained, and her crate is her favorite place when it’s bedtime. She has found her Setter voice and can be vocal if she wants to be petted and is ignored. Amelia has bonded with her foster mom, but sometimes feels intimidated by men and will occasionally bark at them when they’re standing up. A female only home will be the easiest transition for Amelia.

Amelia is 5-6 years old and gets along with her two Chihuahua foster sisters and Lab X foster brother. Sometimes she even initiates play with them. Amelia also co-exists with the foster rabbits who live inside, although if they were outside it might be a different story. Amelia has not lived in a house with cats, so if she could live safely with them is unknown. She has lived with older children. Since Amelia is afraid of loud noises so she is not a candidate for a flying transport.

Amelia is ready for a forever home where she could run after critters in a safely-fenced yard, but then cuddle up with her favorite person. She is a sweet girl ready to bring more English Setter light and love to your home. Are you ready for her?

Amelia is spayed, up-to-date on vaccinations and tests, on heartworm preventative and microchipped. She is in a foster home in Little Rock, AR.
