Early breeders concentrated on the red variety and the red-and-white variety almost disappeared during WWI. Luckily, an Irish clergyman saved them from extinction! Today, Irish Red and White Setters are recognized as a separate breed from their "cousins" the Irish Setters. 

Ian is a Irish Red and White Setter. At 11 weeks old, he already has the angular muscles of a sporting dog and he is as sweet as can be! He had so much fun playing during his photo shoot.

I'd love to take this same photo when Ian is full-grown and weighs between 60-70 pounds. Sometimes you don't realize how little a puppy is until you see the "after" photo.
