Irish Red and White Setter

 

 

FCI Breedstandard

 
A Breed Standard is the guideline which describes the ideal characteristics, temperament and appearance of a breed and ensures that the breed is fit for function. Absolute soundness is essential. Breeders and judges should at all times be careful to avoid obvious conditions or exaggerations which would be detrimental in any way to the health, welfare or soundness of this breed. From time to time certain conditions or exaggerations may be considered to have the potential to affect dogs in some breeds adversely, and judges and breeders are requested to refer to the Kennel Club website for details of any such current issues. If a feature or quality is desirable it should only be present in the right measure.

Regular teeth; scissor bite ideal; edge to edge bite acceptable.
 
 
Neck
 
Moderately long, very muscular, but not too thick, slightly arched, free from throatiness.
Forequarters
Shoulders well laid back. Elbows free, turning neither in nor out. Strong, oval bone, well muscled, sinewy, pasterns slightly sloping.
 
Body

Strong and muscular, deep chest and well sprung ribs. Back and quarters very muscular and powerful. Bone strong, well built up with muscle and sinew.

Wide and powerful. Legs from hip to hock long and muscular from hock to heel short and strong. Stifle well bent, hocks well let down turning neither in nor out.
 
Feet

Close-knit, well feathered between toes.

Gait/Movement

Long, free-striding, effortless with drive.
 
Coat

Finely textured with good feathering. Slight wave permissible but never curly.
 
Colour
 
Clearly particoloured, i.e. base colour pearl white, solid red patches. Mottling or flecking but no roaning permitted around face and feet and up foreleg to elbow and up hindleg to hock.
 
Faults
 
Any departure from the foregoing points should be considered a fault and the seriousness with which the fault should be regarded should be in exact proportion to its degree and its effect upon the health and welfare of the dog, and on the dog’s ability to perform its traditional work.
 
Severe fault:
 
Any dog or bitch not conforming to the height standard.
 

Disqualifying faults:

* Aggresive of overly shy.

* Any dog showing physical or behavioural abnormalities shall be disqualified.

* Males not having two apparently normal testicles.

* Although flecking but not roaning is permitted around the face and feet and up the forelegs as far as the elbow and up the hindleg as far as the hock, visible and excessive roaning, flecking and mottling on any otherpart of the body is an eliminating fault.

Note
 
Male animals should have two apparently normal testicles fully descended into the scrotum.
Only functionally and clinically healthy dogs, with breed typical conformation should be used for breeding.
