smilingsetterHappy St. Patrick’s Day! ¬†Today we’re going to take a look at the beautiful Irish Setter. Irish Setters were bred in Ireland as field hunting dogs. ¬†Irish Setters have a great sense of smell and could sniff out birds from a great distance They are able to track the location, and then silently freeze in place so the hunter can follow and get his prey.

Dog enthusiasts began to take note of the beautiful Iris Setter around the 19th century. They were first bred in multi color combinations but the re color eventually took precedence. The red Irish Setters were first brought into the United States in the beginning of the 19th century. They were accepted into the American Kennel Club in 1878.

The breed continued to gain popularity over the years eventually becoming one of the most popular breeds in the 1970’s. Irish Setters make excellent companions. The Irish Setter is current number 67 in the AKC’s dog registry.
