Similar to the Irish Red and White Setter, the Irish Setter is a medium to large-sized gundog breed that is particularly well-suited for bird hunting. The Irish Setter has a stunning coat of silky hair that comes in variations of red, such as mahogany and chestnut. The Setter is very energetic, and it can withstand significant feats of endurance. The breed is also perfect for the family atmosphere, as it gets along great with children.
