Get to know Rudy

Irish Setter, 9 years old

🏠 Suburbs dog
🍷 Lives with adults only

My favourite thing about Rudy is...

He's such a laid back dog; really well-behaved & very loving, and likes to be near you. Loves to run in the fields every day & doesn't bark at other dogs which I love about him. My son brings his retriever Doodle every day while he's at work, she's been coming since she was a puppy and is now 3, so she's used to give him hell by hanging on his ears & annoying him, but he just took it all 🤗

The biggest challenge with Rudy is...

Nothing really he is a very good boy. Love this breed x

The most surprising thing about owning a Irish Setter is...

They're a very active breed and need a lot of exercise, which he gets with us being retired. Needs at least 3 good walks a day 🐾 Loves everyone from our Grandson to my son, daughter & anyone who visits or knocks on the door 🤣 likes people better than other dogs, he always goes to the people first.

What I wish I’d known about Irish Setters is...

You need to be very active to keep up with them, but great if you are active and able to walk them a lot as they like to run off leash so best if you live near fields or country side.

Did you know?

The Irish Setter is also often called the Red Setter (or Madra rua – which means red dog in Gaelic) because of his stunning coat. It is said that the same gene that makes the Irish Setter red is the same one that is found in Irish and Scottish people to give so many of them ginger hair and freckles!
