English Setter Information

This gentlemanly dog is a mellow, friendly guy who makes a great bird hunting dog and a wonderful family pet. This English Setter is a good-looking dog: long and lean build; soulful eyes; a plume-like tail; and a splashy coat featuring a “belton” speckled pattern in orange, lemon or liver.

The English Setter has served as a bird dog for nearly 400 years and is believed to be a cross of the Spanish Pointer, Springer Spaniel and large Water Spaniel. His obedient nature leads to an excellent training experience. He loves other pets and children alike, which is great if you have a full house. This merry chap brings a giant dose of joy to any home!
