- Other names:
- Golden Irish Setter
- Irish Retriever
The Golden Irish is a hybrid dog which is bred by crossing a Irish Setter with a Golden Retriever. As a hybrid dog the Golden Irish will inherit the physical and behavioral traits of both its parent dog breeds, however, not all Golden Irish dogs will inherit the same characteristics (even if from the same litter).
It is recommended to familiarize yourself with both the Golden Retriever and the Irish Setter if you are planning on adopting a Golden Irish as the breed can have more characteristics of one parent breed than the other.
Golden Irish are known for being very loyal and affectionate dogs with exceptional agility. They are very friendly and should make a wonderful companion or family dog.
