Irish Red and White Setter

The Irish Red and White Setter is an ancient breed from Ireland – the forerunner of the Irish Red Setter.  References to the Red and White setter (including desciptions of a ‘croucher’ or ‘setter’) can be found in gundog books as early as the 14th century, although they probably would look nothing like the dogs we see today.

The Irish Red and White is a happy, good natured, truly loyal and affectionate dog. It is highly intelligent, independent and is extremely energetic, just what a game dog should be. They are capable of doing whatever you ask of them, but whatever that is they need proper and consistent training from an early age.
