English Setter

The English Setter is a medium size breed of dog. It is part of the Setter family, which includes the red Irish Setters, Irish Red and White Setters, and black-and-tan Gordon Setters. It is a gun dog, bred for a mix of endurance and athleticism used to hunt for game such as quail, pheasant, and grouse. It is sometimes referred to as the "Laverack" or "Llewellin" Setter as these were famous strains of the breed.
