Early Irish Setters came in red or red and white, but eventually breeders began to focus only on the red varieties, and the red-and-white setters almost disappeared. They were saved from extinction, however, and now they're considered a separate breed from their Irish Setter cousins.
As gundogs, they take their own sweet time in learning their duties, but eventually become loyal and reliable hunters.
