The English Setter is a purposeful sporting dog, yet incredibly beautiful and athletic in its conformation and movement. As the ancient foundation stock for the Irish and Gordon Setters, English Setters possess the strength of the Gordon and the grace of the Irish with a calm and warm disposition all their own. English Setters have been among the premier breeds since the formation of the American Kennel Club (AKC); in fact, along with eight other Sporting breeds, they were among the first pure breeds accepted by the Club in 1878. The dog with AKC registration #1 was an English Setter named Adonis.
