Erinshire Litters


 Our breeding program started in 2007 with the purchase of 

Orchard Farm Lace to Erinshire




This is Erin from Orchard Farm in Ontario Canada

Erin was from a litter of puppies at Orchard Farm near Windsor,  Ontario and the kennel began breeding Irish Setters around 1938.  Mary Klink was a second generation breeder and sadly she past about 6 months after Erin came to Erinshire Irish Setters.  Erin was from her last litter and was already named Erin when I purchased her.


Our foundation sire Reagan CH. Piperbrook’s Forever A Star  was sired by Am. Can. CH. Waterford Show Off,,  who won  Best of Breed at the 2004 Irish Setter Club of America National Specialty.  His breeding goes back to the Tealwood Irish Setters, that I admired  back in the  1970’s., a very traditional looking sporting dog, that was my goal in breeding.

2010  The Forever Litter 

The Forever litter was whelped on Easter Sunday, April 4, 2010.  There were 6 males and 6 females born over 12 hours… was a dozen Irish Setters to love.  All puppies were sold to pet homes, and it was difficult to chose but we did…..

We kept a male we called Eliott and a female we called Scarlett

Eliott started showing in the 9 to 12 months and loved going to shows.

Scarlett was determined to show for anyone but Brenda!  In 2013, She was  off to Ohio to Eileen Hackett, a professional handler, to finish her AKC championship, which she did in record time, and she returned for a few more shows ( with Jill Taylor above pix) and was eventually bred to BIS, BISS Am. Can., CH Captiva’s Turning Heads, the amazing “Robert”.
