Re: a black English Setter?

Steve your dog looks real simlair to what I saw, 'cept the hair and feathering was more flat then curly. But head shape seems to be simliar.

Heck it coulda been a "heintz 57" dog for all I know.

Re: a black English Setter?

Might have been. I always thought the flat coats where a thick dog like a lab. This one was thinner framed, I may be way of base here, as I'm no dog expert for sure.
