Irish Setter Dog Breed

Irish Setter Dogs

The Irish Setter is thought to have developed from an Irish Water Spaniel - Irish Terrier cross, but is far more believable that an English Setter - Spaniel - Pointer combination, with a dash of Gordon thrown in, was the true formula.

First and foremost, he is typically Irish, with a devil may care attitude that not only makes him likable but also adds value as a bird dog in rough country and briars. The Irish Setter is an active dog, rich red in color, sweet-natured , and very trainable.

Height: males, 27 inches at the withers; Females, 25 inches at the withers.

Weight: males, 70 pounds; bitch, 60 pounds.
