The Irish Red and White Setter is believed to be the older of the two Irish Setter breeds, dating back to the late 1700s. The popularity of its solid-red cousin overshadowed it for many years until it nearly reached extinction. Thanks to efforts by dedicated breeders, the breed made a comeback in the 1920s. The Irish Red and White Setter is an active, friendly and intelligent dog, making it both a good companion in the field and pleasant family dog. The breed's coat is not as dense as the Irish Setter, so brushing and trimming is comparatively simpler. Their energy level deserves an active owner, regular exercise and early obedience training. .
