Irish Setter

Irish Setter The Irish Setter breed (also known as the Red Setter or Irish Red Setter) is an extraordinarily active, playful, and friendly dog breed. Otherwise, they are generally much like other setters, such as the English Setter or Gordon Setter. The Irish Setter's Behavior Source: Wikipedia. Recommended for: pet; not recommended for apartments The Irish Setter dog breed is known as playful, friendly and excellent with children. In general, Irish Setters are similar to other setter dogs, such as English Setters and Gordon Setters. The Irish Setter breed is exceptional, however, in being even more active than the other breeds generally; an Irish Setter dog will likely be unhappy without any outdoor activities scheduled. The breed was developed to help hunt birds by finding or "pointing" them. Remember that breed only provides a general clue as to any individual dog's actual behavior. Make sure to get to know dogs well before bringing them into your home.
