The Irish Setter Dog
An Active Aristocratic Bird Dog

The Irish Setter is rich red in color, substantial yet
very elegant in build.  At his best, the lines so satisfy in
over-all balance that some artists have termed him
the most beautiful of all dogs.

Afield, the Irish Setter is essentially a sporting dog, a
swift moving hunting dog, a bird dog, tough, bold and very durable for long continued work in the brush.

At home, his rollicking personality and sweet nature
make the Irish Setter an affectionate, loyal companion,
excellent with children, very playful and will bond to the
whole family.  He is good with other pets and quite friendly
with other dogs.  He is very active and therefore requires
lots of daily exercise.  Shedding is average, so he should be
groomed about three times a week.  Although he is so fond
of people and strangers, he is considered a good watchdog.
For a beautiful, playful affection companion, consider
an Irish Setter puppy for your family.
