      History: The English Setter has been a treasured English bird retriever fot the last four hundred years. A hunter by nature, it has a graceful appearence, good agility, thoughtful-looking eyes, and a noble gait. This breed is thought to have come from the Spanish Pointer, Water Spaniel, and  Spanish Spaniel. Today's English Setter hails from the dog created by Lord Edward Laverack, who devoted himself to the creation of a gentle setter breed.
        Body: The Eniglish Setter has a lean head with a clearly defined stop, an angular muzzle, and  low-set drop ears covered with silky hair. A medium-length coat lies flat on the body. The legs, abdomen, and tail have a good amount of moderate-length hair. Coloring includes black, white and brown (tan), black and white, blue belton, liver and white, and white. Spots spread all over the body are preferred to big patches. The eyes are dark brown.

        Character: In a field, this dog lowers itself and waits until the hunter has fired, and starts to search for the quarry on the master's command. Gentle, good mannered, merrier than any other sporting breed, the English Setter is often called an aristocrat among dogs, for it keeps its distance from other dogs and cautiously approaches them with a prudent attitude. Quiet, loyal to and affectionate with its master, friendly with other people and animals, it makes a loving house dog.

        Care: Daily brushing is necessary for a rich looking and healthy coat. Occasional professional grooming is desirable. Thorough coat care is recommended after a walk as the coat easily catches the seeds and leaves of plants. Originally an active hunter, this breed grows bad-tempered if retained in a kennel or kept indoors unnecessarily long.

        Exercise: Consistent training and strenuous exercise is necessary for a good natured dog.


    Puppies: The six to eight puppies in each litter are  delivered without assistance and are easy to raise. Newborns are white for the first week; after this time, their coat colors will begin to change.
