Irish Red & White Setter
An Eye-Catcher with a Zest for Life


The Irish Red and White Setter and the Irish Setter
have a common spaniel ancestor.   At early Irish dog shows
in the mid 1800s, there were now and then, dog shows with
separate classes for the red and whites and for all reds.   At
other times they were shown together.   By the end of the
1800s the red and white variety had nearly vanished
in favor of the more popular all red dog.

In the 1920s, a concerted effort was made by the
Rev. Noble Huston of County Down, Ireland to re-establish
this nearly extinct dog.   Successful he was, and by the mid
1940s a specialist breed club was formed.   Today the Irish
Red and White Setter is a very popular gundog and enjoys
large entries at the English shows.   In Canada, the breed
was recognized by the CKC in 2000 and in the US a breed
club is well established and working towards AKC
recognition.

This well proportioned medium sized dog is a
very powerful, hardy dog, athletic rather than racy.   It is
exuberant outdoors, but makes a quiet family pet indoors.  
The beautiful, appealing coat is straight and flat.  The base
color is pearly white with clear islands of red.   Grooming
needs are quite minimal.   Although best suited for country
living, given adequate exercise it is equally adaptable to an
urban family environment.   It is a very alert and friendly
dog, an ideal shooting companion and family pet.
