Gordon Setter

The name Gordon Setter was given to the breed due to its close links with the fourth Duke of Gordon and his ancestral home in Scotland at Gordon Castle. The Duke had a strong kennel of working dogs in the early 1800s and he was known to favour the beautifully marked Black and Tan Setters.

Black and fallow dogs were mentioned in early writings from the 17th Century and although others were bred along different lines from the Duke of Gordon's dogs, the breed has been named in his honour as one of its main founders.
