Peppermint Pattie, the field bred English Setter ~ Adopted

Peppermint Pattie, the field bred English Setter ~ Adopted

Meet Peppermint Pattie, a 2-year-old field bred English Setter that comes to us from an overpopulated rural Florida shelter. Shelter volunteers asked us to take her because the shelter’s adoption area is so full, adoptable new intakes don’t make it out of the quarantine area unless potential adopters see them online. Originally, shelter staff thought Pattie was a border collie mix, but we think she presents more as a field bred English Setter. In any case, she’s quite lovely!

It’s pretty obvious this girl was once someone’s baby. She sits, stays, and shakes on command, is good in her crate, and appears to be housetrained (yay!). Pattie is also quite a love and really enjoys being petted and scratched. She’s a big fan of hugs — both giving and receiving them. Pattie is quite thin at just 45 lbs., and needs to add at least another 5 lbs. to her lanky frame. Not to worry, though — some good groceries will rectify that situation soon enough. She’s a loving girl who is people-, dog-, and cat-friendly, spayed, up-to-date on all her vaccinations, microchipped, and — best of all! — heartworm negative. 

Make sure you look through Peppermint Pattie’s facebook photo album.
