Duffy the Irish Wolf Setter at 1 year old—"A lovely dog, great with children and other dogs, likes to chase things. Cats, birds and cars are his favorite! He is a bit of a chewer, especially if left alone for any period of time. Loves a run on the beach and is very clever, would be suitable for agility or obedience (so I've been told!) He is not to big, but strong, 25" at the shoulder and still growing."


The Irish Wolf Setter is not a purebred dog. It is a cross between the Irish Setter and the Irish Wolfhound. The best way to determine the temperament of a mixed breed is to look up all breeds in the cross and know you can get any combination of any of the characteristics found in either breed. Not all of these designer hybrid dogs being bred are 50% purebred to 50% purebred. It is very common for breeders to breed multi-generation crosses.
