|Tandera Gordon Setters
|We strive to breed a BBB Gordon Setter.
A Beautiful dog, with plenty of Brains, and BirdSense
|"A dog to hunt upland game, a dog to kiss my
wee children, a dog for a fireside companion
and a dog to brag about in the carriage house
on Sunday morn."
~The Duke of Gordon
|~The Gordon Setter Comes to America
In 1842 George Blunt imported the first two Gordon
Setters, Rake and Rachel. He gave Rachel to Daniel
Webster. They started the development of the breed in
this country. Gordon Setters were bred as "meat" dogs.
Their purpose was to help their owner bring home the
bacon so to speak. They were prized for their
wonderful nose, the ability to find enough game for their
family, with plenty of extra to trade at market for
They were hunted in the morning, played with the children
in the afternoon and lounged by the hearth to protect
the house at night.
The breed is still used in the field and is the most truly
dual of the three setters
