Llewellin Setter

The Llewellin Setter is a distinct breed that adheres to a stringent set of bloodlines dating back to the mid 19th century breeding program initiated by R.L. Purcell Llewellin. Originally considered an English Setter, this dog distinguished itself in that it was bred specifically for field work under strict precepts. This adherence and attention to detail in breeding gave way to a field dog of great enough repute that most dog enthusiasts today consider it apart from the English Setter. As a result, the breed excels at hunting, pointing and retrieval.

Demonstrating intelligence, companionship and an enthusiastic attitude when working for the gun this breed makes an excellent hunting dog and pet. Although Llewellins were historically a tricolor dog, the real measure of the breed is determined solely by bloodlines. Moreover, this dog does not have any specific height and weight requirements.
