Irish Red and White Setter - Guide to Irish Red and White Setters

Description: Although the Irish Red and White Setter is one of the newest breeds to be recognized by the American Kennel Club, it has a long history in Ireland which dates back to the 17th century where it was as a versatile gundog and companion. There are two types of Setters, the Irish and the Red and White, with the latter believed to be the older of the two. Around 1850, the Irish Setter - 'one of the world's most beautiful breeds' - became so immensely popular that the Red and White Setter became very rare and was thought to be extinct.
