The Gordon Setter comes from Scotland back in the 17th century. He became well-known in the kennels of the fourth Duke of Gordon in the early part of the 19th century. He was a popular hunting dog and bird dog but is also great as a pet and also a good performer in shows.
He’s a muscular, sturdy dog who may appear stubborn because he’s bright but not blindly obedient. He can live in different types of homes equally well. His coat is a tan and black colour which means he’s easily spotted in snow and light fields. He needs lots of exercise, either in a fenced area or on a leash. He also requires regular grooming to stop his coat from matting. He’s 23 – 27 inches tall.
