Gordon Setter Description
  Differing from the English and Irish setters, the Gordon Setter is more robust in structure, has a more massive head, and more full, developed lips. It also differs from the English and Irish setters by the color of its silky, wavy coat. It is the only black and tan setter. It is tall and slender and has a feathered coat. The head is long, chiseled and massive with a very pronounced stop and a large-nostrilled black nose. Its muzzle is squared off and not pointed. Its ears are long and slightly pointed, hanging flat beside the head. It has oval eyes that are dark brown. Its legs are large-boned and straight and its coat is soft and glossy and may be straight or slightly wavy with profuse feathering on the legs, underside, ears and tail.
