Gordon Setters

This is Nemi. She is a young Gordon Setter and a very active dog.

The Gordon Setter is a member of the setter family, including both the Irish Setter and the English Setter. Setter breeds are often used for hunting. The original purpose of the breed was to hunt gamebirds. The Gordons are the heaviest of the setter breeds, with males reaching 68cm at the withers and can weigh up to 36kg. Gordons were bred to run, and require 60 to 80 minutes of vigorous exercise daily. They are said to be fearless, willing, intelligent and capable. Because of their hunting instincts, Gordons should not be allowed to roam freely if unsupervised.
