About this Breed

The Llewellin Setter is widely cherished as one of the best upland bird hunting dogs. A strain of the English Setter, the Llewellin has a great many devotees and is recognized as its own breed by The American Field Dog Stud Book, the oldest dog registry in the USA. These dogs are well-loved for their hunting prowess in intelligence, stamina, nose, biddability, in addition to its gentle nature.

While the history of the English Setter goes back to the 1500s, the Llewellin Setter was developed in a breeding program by R. L. Purcell Llewellin in the 1860s, using dogs from Laverack. These dogs were intended to excel in field work, and Llewellin succeeded in that task. Today, a great number of field-type English Setters have Llewellin blood from the historical crossing of the lines.
