Just last friday he got hit and dad is so upset over it so we're trying to get a male long hair to breed with Misty, my dog. Wish me luck sammie

Common Name(s) Irish Setter, Red Setter, Irish Red Setter
Breed Type The Irish setter is a sporting breed. Bred as a gun dog, this breed is popular among bird hunters as well as other types of hunters.
Background As its name suggests, the Irish Setter was developed in Ireland. Its ancestry includes the Old Spanish Pointer, Scottish setters, and setting spaniels. Once red and white with shorter legs, the breed underwent a number of changes before becoming what it is today. Popular Irish Setter Hybrids include the Golden Irish (cross with the Golden Retriever) and the Irish Doodle (cross with the Poodle).
Description The Irish Setter is distinguished by its beautiful, silky red coat, which may be light or dark. Some have white markings on the chest and feet, and some puppies have gray hair behind their ears and legs that turns red as they age. Irish Setters have triangular ears, chestnut or dark hazel eyes, and black or brown noses. Males are 26-28 inches tall and weigh 65-75 pounds. Females are 24-26 inches tall and weigh 55-65 pounds.
Care and Feeding Irish Setters do well on diets that include potatoes, carrots, rye, lamb and poultry. They should ideally have two or three small meals each day to help prevent bloat. The Irish Setter needs a good daily brushing to keep its coat looking great. Baths or dry shampoos should be given only when needed. Irish Setters need annual checkups to stay healthy. Vaccinations are due as follows:
The Irish Setter sheds moderately. If kept indoors, it will be necessary to vacuum regularly. Due to its predisposition to allergies, you may need to avoid using certain chemicals or maintain a special cleaning regimen.
Housing Your Dog Irish Setters are best suited to outdoor living. At the very least, they should be able to get out for regular exercise in a large yard.
Social Behaviors Irish Setters enjoy the company of humans, and they do very well with children. They also tend to get along with other animals.
Handling and Training This breed is rather independent, so it is sometimes difficult to train. Firmness is important. Housebreaking the Irish Setter is usually easy.
Activities Irish Setters need lots of exercise. Daily walks are critical, and they also enjoy running in a fenced yard.
Breeding/Reproduction When selecting a mate for your Irish Setter, it is important to check bloodlines for hereditary disorders. Those common to this breed include epilepsy, joint dysplasia, eye problems, and Von Willebrand's disease.
Common Health Problems Irish Setters often have skin allergies, so it is important to take care to avoid things that trigger reactions. Epilepsy is also common, and must be treated by a veterinarian. Ear infections can be problematic as well, but may be prevented with proper ear care.
Availability Irish Setters are hard to find in some areas. Breeders may be located online. Prices average between $300 and $600.
