What a beautiful puppy!! I like the one pic with him chewing on the stick! He is sooo cute!!
Dec 12, 2006 itzie
those sad eyes are adorable...and the one black eye and one white is too cute!
Dec 12, 2006 anon
oh my goodness!!!! he is absolutely PRECIOUS! I've always loved these guys... His markings are just fantastic though with that 1/2 black face of his.

I used to have an Irish Setter which I heard are similar in temperment - he was an incredible animal and great friend. Always loving, patient and happy to see you. Enjoy your Amos!!

I'M SO SORRY! I thought this dog wasn't cute because the main pic wasn't good and so I gave it 8 biscuits! If I had seen the other pictures, I would have given this puppy 11 biscuits.

I especially love that first photo with the chew toy. So cute!
I hope you guys can make room to adopt a shelter dog next. There are plenty out there that are cat-friendly and need a home.

He is absolutely adorable! Our neighbour has two of these and they are such friendly, obedient little dogs. Delightful!

He is soooooooo cutie. I love all those spots and that pink little belly. Our little guy has all those spots as well. Enjoy your little guy and Huggs and Kisses from Chance and his mommy.

His nose is heart-shaped!! What a cutie pie! He'd be great on a greeting card.

I had to come back for a second look now that I'm at work and a secon 11-biscuit vote -- so adorable!

Oaktown Girl -- some people pick a specific breed for certain reasons and it's not our job to say they should have gone to a shelter. Personally, we had to go to a breeder because we had restrictions on size and all the pound puppies were mutts, so we weren't sure how big they'd turn out. Adoption isn't for everyone, and even puppies from breeders need homes (or they might end up in a shelter, too).

What a gorgeous new boy he is! I just want to nuzzle and snuggle with him! :)
Dec 12, 2006 scobig
OH IM SEEING SPOTS! Wait, its just Amos! OH what a cutie boy he is! I loooove those curly ears. There is one in my neighborhood, and I adore him.

Anon, I would like to respond to your post just to say that if someone is interested in adoption they are not just limited to their city's pound. There are breed specific rescues which can be found on the web. Ther is also Petfinder which lists animals from shelters all across the country. 1 in 10 dogs in shelters are pure bred. I actually have 2 pure bred fosters right now from our shelter, a Basset Hound and a Pomeranian. Not all homeless dogs are 'mutts'. It is up to us individually to decide which way to go, but please do not think or tell people that all shelter dogs are mutts, that just isnt true.

Handsome, Handsome, Handsome Boy!!!! What a beautiful boy you have. He looks absolutely delicious -- give him a kiss on that gorgeous doggie face.....
Dec 12, 2006 tootsie's mom
Amos is beautiful. Love the progression of the photos as his spots appear.

The 8th photo is great! He looks like he's about to fly!
Dec 12, 2006 MargoPego
He's a little sweetie! What a face! He looks like a serious lil' guy, but I'm pretty sure I seems glints of mischief in them thar eyes o' his! ;)
Dec 12, 2006 puppyluv
His nose IS heartshaped! I love this breed, I love this puppy, I want this puppy.....
Dec 12, 2006 renee
Too cute and too funny. A very handsome boy you have there. Was it really windy out or was he about to sneeze in pic 8? How did he manage to get his ears up and tail out like that. He was at a stand still so I know he wasn't running. I love how dogs can flip their ears like they are flying. His ears are so cute. I love the wavey coat. He is a slipper dog. I'm thinking lady and the tramp with spots. He seems so royal as he plays.
Dec 12, 2006 megusmaximus
What amazing markings! I've never seen a setter like that.

Anon: Oaktown Girl didn't say it's bad to get dogs from a breeder and that they should have gone to a shelter. Her specific words were " hope you guys can make room to adopt a shelter dog next."
Dec 12, 2006 Julia
First of all, the main picture IS good. Look at that squishy jowl flopped over the bone! Gahh!! It made my jaw drop! Goodness gracious! The cute is too much for me!

Second, [url=http://www.petfinder .org]Petfinder[/url] is but one website dedicated to matching dogs with potential adopters. You can still adopt a dog with specific requirements. There are many organizations dedicated specifically to one breed. So, I second Oaktown Girl's suggestion. Adoptable dogs are not all "mutts". There are dogs to be adopted in every size, breed, age, etc. :) Check it out!

You have an excellent model for future photographs. What a treasure.
Dec 12, 2006 soshyviolet
Gosh he DOES look like a dalmation. I didn't know setters got spots!!! He's a cutie-pie!

Holy muzzlepuffs! :)
Dec 12, 2006 Lisa
Renee-I have to give you credit for mentioning Lady and the Tramp, that's my favorite movie! I love the progression of pictures from cute white fluff ball, to spotted and handsome boy he is.

I didn't mean that all dogs in pounds are always mutts, just that when we were looking for our puppy they were all mutt puppies at the time - I've volunteered in several pounds before so know firsthand that this isn't always the case. And I also don't think "mutt" is a bad word - I personally love them and had one before our current purebred.

I simply just wanted to make the point that not everyone finds what they need in a shelter, and that too often people on this site seem to criticize those of us who turn to breeders. I looked in shelters in my own state as well as 2 surrounding states with no luck. Our dog had passed away a month prior and we were in serious need of a new pup - we were all taking the loss pretty hard and knew a puppy would help us heal, so decided a breeder was the way to go.

I didn't mean to offend anyone, but I think maybe people misread my comment. Basically, no one knows the circumstances that people base their decisions on concerning what kind of dog to get and how to go about doing so. Just wanted to make that little point... apparently it didn't go over so well so I'll just keep to myself from now on.

Grow up you guys!

Your dog is cute!

i have found true love at last...and his name is Amos!

Dec 12, 2006 Care
my goodness I love his freckles :)
Dec 12, 2006 Julia

No, no, no! :) I am not criticising people who get dogs from reputable breeders. My first doggie (and greatest doggie love) was a bichon, and my parents bought her from a wonderful woman who was deeply committed to preserving the health of the breed. I only meant to clarify that there are breed-specific rescue organizations out there, as opposed to local shelters that often have a hodgepodge of animals. Now, for example, if I were to get another bichon, I would look at bichon-specific rescue groups first to see if there were animals up for adoption in my area. I do not think poorly of people who get dogs from breeders at all! :) I just wanted to make sure it was clear to people that such organizations exist. Information, not meant to be critical.

I can also TOOOOTALLY sympathize with being in critical need of a pooch. :) I was fortunate that when my bichon passed, we were already 2 doggies deep, so I had a dog to help with the loss. I know what it is like to come home to an empty house, and it is one of the worst pains ever. I am glad you were able to get a pup that fit your life. :)

Amos is BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!!! I wish him the greatest life with his loving family!!!!!!!!
Dec 12, 2006 Cheryl
Where's my insulin??? My blood sugar has skyrocketed just looking at all this sweetness! O, those spots and those ears. And I love that the human is in a color coordinated outfit. What a beautiful boy!
Dec 12, 2006 lovemydogs
AMOS IS PRESIOUS! I am also a proud owner of an English Setter female that I RESCUED FROM THE SPCA in Houston. They had her listed as an Australian Shepard (NOT), but our vet confirmed her breed. THEY ARE WONDERFUL dogs and very sweet. I also rescued a blue merle Border Collie male named Chanz. They are my babies!
Amos is a handsome young man!
Dec 12, 2006 anon
renee - if you look veeeerrrry closely at pic #8, you'll see that he actually is running. His front right foot is the only one on the ground, the rest are mid-puppy-gallop!! Puppies running are like the best things EVER.

and Julia - thanks :)

<u>Oaktown Girl said</u>:

<u>Oaktown Girl never said</u>:

-That the owners of this adorable pup should have gone to a shelter to adopt

-That puppies from breeders don't need homes too.

Please do not attribute words or beliefs to me, especially those which are not correct. Of course I understand that not everyone can find what they need in a shelter or rescue dog. And I don't judge people who adopt from breeders. People who know me here know I drool equally over ALL the cute puppies here, no matter where they come from.

And putting a plug in for shelter dogs is not a de-facto put-down of people who've gotten their dog from a breeder.

Ialso advocate for people to adopt children, and that doesn't mean I don't think they shouldn't have any of their own biological ones as well.

OH! He is all speckly! I want him!
Dec 13, 2006 Dusty's mom
I undertand about how hard it is to search for the right pup for the family. I too went to many, many shelters before I answered an ad for a "pet quality" sheltie baby. I desparately needed to plug the hole in my heart after Dunkin died, and most at the shelters were too large, apparently sickly, or had behavior problems that would not have done well with my German Shepherd or two rambunctious boys. I wanted to rescue a dog but after many months of looking, I just couldn't wait any longer. I went to 3 or 4 cities before giving time (hopefully Dusty will live until at least 90) I will expand my search to the breed rescue organizations...meanwhile...
that is a very Snoopy-like pup! The flying ears are the best!!! Adorable!

I don't care where the puppies come from. I love them all. I was scouring the newspaper today looking to see what was available out there. I've done pounds, breeders, and rescue groups. I was disappointed the last time I contacted the rescue group for my mother. They made us jump through hoops to try to get a dog to comfort my mother after her other rescue dog passed. The first time they practically begged us to take the best dog in the whole world. He made so many people happy at the nursing home. He was my moms best friend. So thats when we tried the pound yet again. But my mom was so lonely and desperate, she grabbed the first thing she could find. She brought home this mangie little dog that went after me and my daughter. It would only eat potatoe chips and beef jerky because it had been on the streets so long. They had found it at a car dealership in Cleveland. So I made my mom take it back because I was afraid when I was sleeping it would get me. I wasn't even allowed to take it outside for a walk. (If I would have gone to the pound, I know for a fact I would have picked a much better choice. I know they have good decent animals that need real homes. This one must have been on deaths door and thats why my mother brought it home. She always had a big heart. I've gotten great watch dogs and family oriented pets as well) Then my mom went to a breeder and got a pug puppy. The very same day, I got two female pug sisters given to me from the car wash next to my work. So it really doesn't matter where you get the one you love. Just as long as you love them unconditionally and forever. All puppies are good. It's the owners you have to watch out for.
Back to this little cutie... I looked at the pick with flying ears again. The foot is up a little so I guess he was running. I just love the ears. They are fluffy and silky. Just fantastic!!!!!!! I love your puppy. The older he got the more handsome he became. Very unique markings.

This is one of the cutest puppies I have ever seen!!
It reminds me of my puppy when she was little. She is one year old. my weird username is after my dog. Maggie May Of Laurel Highlands.

OMG This puppy is adorable.Soooooooooooooo cute I never thought these dogs were so cute.O.K. I've decided I need to go out and get one.
Jan 23, 2007 NatalieG
I love Amos! We just bought a little tricolor female. Everyone thinks she's a dalmation or a cocker mix.
Jan 23, 2007 NatalieG
p.s. Does your setter dig in his water dish? Ours splashes her water all over the floor. It drives us crazy. Also, she insists on barking at her puppy chow before eating it. Go figure!
Feb 14, 2007 PorchPuppy

Amos is such a sweetheart!! His spots are so beautiful!!
Jul 4, 2007 BigDogMom
I'm going to focus my comment on AMOS, because this column is about the DOG, not personal beliefs, although my personal belief is that this is one BEAUTIFUL pooch! I love the freckles and the big sad eyes- he could get away with murder if he were mine! Give him a big smooch on his velvet nozzle for me!

And to all the previous posters- it's not about YOU, it's about the dog!! Take your discussions elsewhere!

Amos is sooooooo cool....I would LOVE to have an English Setter like him. I Love black and white..
Mar 28, 2010 biff
I love this breed, and Amos is a beautiful example of it. I hope he's fitting in well with the rest of the crew (good thing you don't have a bird).
Jul 15, 2010 georgia04
What a gorgeous baby boy Amos is. Just stunning. Truckloads of biscuits for him!
Dec 4, 2011 quailseeker
Handsome setter! I noted you picked him up in CT. Would love to know the breeder, dam and sire. We have had several setters. Our most recent, Patch, passed at Age 13. Its been two years and we have begun our search.
Nov 22, 2013 /bethany.mogensen
Amos is adorable! Beautiful markings! When we were looking for our English Setter, we looked through shelters and rescues for months, but English Setters are hard to find, even through breeders. The English Setters we found were older with medical issues and we were looking for a younger adult dog to be a companion to our 3-year-old Great Dane/Lab mix. Junebug, our English Setter, was found through a breeder needing to find homes for her Irish, Gordon, and English Setters. Even though older dogs are wonderful, Junebug's 2-year-old puppy spirit is exactly what our family needed! Congrats again on Amos! English Setters are wonderful dogs and I wish more people had them as companions!
