Irish Setter Information
The Irish Setter is known for sporting a gorgeous red coat and for its combination of athleticism, speed and grace. Bred for hunting, the Irish Setter is believed to have developed from an English Setter-Spaniel-Pointer-Gordon Setter mix in the 18th century. With this pedigree, the Irish Setter is very easy to train.
With a carefree, positive attitude, the Irish Setter makes friends with anyone they meet. They are exceptional with kids and other pets and love being part of a family. If you are looking for a great family dog, consider the Irish Setter!
