The Golden Irish cross is a cross between a Golden Retriever and an Irish Setter. This hybrid cross of the Irish Setter and Golden Retriever breeds combines the outstanding personality and trainability of both of these breeds. Also, this cross comes with a reduced risk of genetic defects as are often found in purebred dogs. The Golden Irish sheds less than the Golden Retriever and is generally healthier as well.
Akin to the Golden Retriever, these dogs make great family pets. They are very well built and are the perfect combination of the Golden and Irish breeds.
The Golden Irish is a highly intelligent cross that loves to please. They have a very sweet natured personality and get along well with families. They love to swim, run, and play.
This cross had minimal shedding due to not having the undercoat of the Golden. They should be brushed regularly and bathed only when needed. This cross requires little effort to maintain their beautiful coat.
The Golden Irish is a hybrid of the Golden Retriever and Irish Setter coats. They do not have the undercoat of the Golden but maintain their feathering.
Easily trained. They have the high intelligence of both breeds, but the easy trainability of the Golden Retriever.
The Golden Irish requires daily exercise. They love to play with their families and do well in medium to large size yards. They also do well in the country. A small city apartment is not the place for this cross.

Annual cost of owning a Golden Irish puppy

Before buying a puppy it is important to understand the associated costs of owning a dog. The annual cost or "upkeep" is often overlooked when determining a Golden Irishes true ownership cost. When calculating your budget make sure you account for the price of food, vaccines, heartworm, deworming, flea control, vet bills, spay/neuter fees, grooming, dental care, food, training and supplies such as a collar, leash, crate, bed, bowls, bones, and toys. All of these items can add up quickly so make sure you estimate anywhere from $500 - $2,000 or more for the first year then about $500 - $1,000 or more every year thereafter to meet the annual financial obligations of your growing, loving dog.
