Llewellin Setter Hunting Dogs and Puppies for sale

The Llewellin Setter owes much of its history to an Englishman, R. Purcell Llewellin (1840–1925), who founded his strain using Laverack's best dogs and outcrossed them with the Duke, Rhoebe and later Duke's littermate Kate bloodlines with the best results. Some well meaning experts believe that Llewellin Setters are nothing more – and nothing less – than English Setters. Llewellin Setters are simply English Setters that trace back to two particular English Setters. They represent a certain definite English Setter ancestry. Over time many have been able to maintain somewhat pure Llewellin Setters using the same bloodlines and breeding program R. Purcell Llewellin so many years ago.
