Get to know a dog breed at the AKC Museum of the Dog!
Each month we are highlighting one of the 201 recognized breeds in the American Kennel Club. You’ll learn the history of the breed as well as key characteristics of their anatomy and coat that help them meet the standard. Activities include art-making, stories and books, a collectable breed fact sheet, and an opportunity to meet a live dog.
March’s Breed Spotlight: Irish Red and White Setter
The rollicking Irish Red and White Setter is an athletic medium-sized bird dog bred primarily for hunting. Fun-loving, friendly, and high-spirited, Irish Red and Whites are a bit shorter and stockier than their cousin the Irish Setter. The stunning coat, vivid red islands floating on a sea of pearl white, has a practical function: it enables hunters to spot their dog at a distance. The handsome face projects a keen but kindly expression.
