So you’re looking to adopt an Gordon Setter, or already have one?
According to the American Kennel Club, “Gordons are the largest and most substantial of the setters—a big male might stand 27 inches at the shoulder and weigh 80 pounds. The stunning coat is a glistening black, with tan markings and long hair on the ears, belly, legs, chest, and tail. Tan spots above the bright brown eyes point up a wise and willing expression. Like other Scots breeds, from the compact Scottish Terrier to the majestic Scottish Deerhound, Gordons were built to withstand their homeland’s tough terrain and foul weather. The Gordon Setter, the black avenger of the Highlands, is a substantial bird dog named for a Scottish aristocrat. Athletic and outdoorsy, Gordons are bold, confident, and resolute in the field, and sweetly affectionate by the fireside.”
An Gordon Setter typically ranges from 58.42cm to 68.58cm in height, and weighs from 20.41165665kg to 36.287389600000004kg.
