Irish Red and White Setter Information
The Irish Red and White Setter is a friendly, fun, active breed. As the name would imply, this dog features a distinctive red and white coat which is beautiful and serves a useful purpose by enabling hunters to spot them from a distance. They are excellent hunters and love having a job to do. As a pet, the Irish Red and White Setters are sweet and kind, but can become destructive if bored and neglected so make sure they get plenty of exercise and TLC.
Not long ago, this breed was nearly extinct. Luckily, around the middle of last century a few avid hunters made a concentrated effort to save the Irish Red and White Setter, and since then the breed has been steadily making a comeback.
