Gordon Setter. Our family had a mix of this dog and a German Shepard. He was the best dog in the world...well...there are a lot of those best dogs in the world! Barnaby used to herd the little kids away from the street at our ballfield. You all have stories.

The heaviest of the three setter breeds, the Gordon Setter was originally bred as a personal bird dog, but they are equally at home as companion dogs, obedience competitors and show dogs today. Sturdy and muscular, the Gordon suggests strength and stamina rather than extreme speed while on the move. The breed's distinctive black and tan coat allows it to be found easily in light fields and early snow.
