First, there’s that gorgeous red coat. You won’t have to worry about losing track of your pet at the dog park—the flashy Irish Setter stands out in any crowd. Underneath the coat is a true athlete, over two feet tall at the shoulder and weighing 60 to 70 pounds. The breed was created as a hunter’s companion who can do a hard day’s work in the field. Irish Setters are famous for their grace and speed.
