The Irish Setter is an active, aristocratic bird dog, rich red in color, substantial and elegant construction. Standing on two feet tall at the shoulder, the dog has a straight, thin, shiny, longer on ears, chest, tail and back of legs. Far, the Irish Setter is a fast-moving hunter, at home, a sweet natured companion, trainable.
Body type
Long enough to allow free passage and rectum. Well sprung ribs. Loins of moderate length. Line upper body leans slightly downward from the withers to the tail set.
Short and fine on head and forelegs. In all other parts of moderate length and flat. Feathering long and silky on ears, the back of the forelegs and thighs long and thin, with a nice strip of hair on the belly and chest extending over the chest. Fringe on tail moderately long and pointed. All coat and feathering as straight and free as possible from curl or wave. The Irish Setter is trimmed for the show ring to emphasize the lean head and neck clean. The top third of the ears and the throat nearly to the breastbone are trimmed. The excessive draft removed to show the natural contour of the foot. All trimming is done to preserve the natural appearance of the dog.
Rich brown or mahogany red, with no trace of black. A small amount of white on the chest, throat or fingers to avoid being penalized. However, the smaller amount of white better.
Havanese has a quiet and gentle disposition, but enjoy loud play sessions. They are affectionate, preferring to stand by its owner or in the same room, and alert their owner to approaching strangers. They enjoy the company of other Havanese. They are intelligent and easily trained and attentive to his handler.

Havanese has an alert expression, sweet produced by the combination of large dark eyes, ears down, long hair and an endearing habit of tilting his head when he hears.
Independent, Lively, Affectionate, Playful, Companionable, Energetic
