of Llewellin's personal Dashing Bondhu
A perfect example how genetically similar the Dashing Bondhu's are today from the originals, with the original Fd.Ch.Ch. Armstrong's Dash II pictured on the left and 134 years later Hank's Ringo Bondhu pictured on the right. Can there be any doubt that they are the same pure Dashing Bondhu bloodlines?

Example: How pups can change as they grow...Not all pups change this much, but this is why we send an outline diagram of each pup showing their expected ticking as an adult. That way, our customer's will know about how much ticking a pup will have as an adult. Just because they are born all white, does not mean they won't have a lot of ticking as an adult. All pups are born without any ticking and will get a little to a lot of ticking as they develop. At 5 week old, we can make an educated guess on the amount of ticking a pup will have as an adult. The same goes for pups with markings, they are born with markings, but the amount ticking will vary from a few to a lot and won't come in fully until an adult.
(Pup shown for an example Not For Sale)
Tri-Belton pup at 3 wks
(born all white and still all white)
Same Tri-Belton pup at 6 wks old
(has faint ticking on body, but showing ticking on belly, legs, ears, and muzzle)
Same pup at 3 months old
(Tri-Belton is 3/4 ticked)
Same pup at 12 months old
(Tri-Belton is fully ticked now)
Amount of Ticking will vari from pup to pup.
Please note: Not all our pups will have this much ticking as an adult, some will have very little ticking at all. We provide a color diagram of each pup's expected ticking as an adult and try to lean to the heavy side, so their will be seldom any surprises. We try our best to please our customers.

Starting January 1st, 2017 the price for all pups sold with Fr. James Brannon's Irish Bondhu Setters in their pedigrees will increase $100. making pups with our without the bloodline the same price. The reason for doing this is three fold.
1. We can no longer continue to price our pure Dashing Bondhu Llewellin's Setters for less than we originally purchased them for many years ago.
2. For over a dozen years now all reports show that our pups with the highest percentage of Fr. Brannon's Setters in their pedigrees are equally as high quality in all respects as those without any. There is simply no recognizable difference between the 100% Humphrey and those with Fr. Brannon's Irish Bondhu and/or Belgium bloodlines in them, regardless the percentage of each. Perfect examples are that both "Hunting with Hank" and "Upland Days with Dash", stars have both bloodlines in them.
3. Through our years of research, we found that Fr. Brannon Irish Bondhu Setters all originated from Sir. Richard Llewellin's kennel and Fr. Brannon and the Humphrey's were very good close friends and were very familiar with each other Setters, even using each others studs. It was also very common for Fr. Brannon and the Humphrey family to switch homes/kennels for a few months during the summer, taking care of each others Setters/kennels, so the Humphey family could summer in Ireland. Keep in mind that it would be like someone from New York state summering at New Jersey's Atlantic City.
We will continue to show percentages of Humphrey, Fr. Brannon, and Belgium bloodlines, to give them credit for their contributions and for those who care and will continue to produce 100% Humphrey pups as well as pups with as much of Fr. Brannon's and the Belgium bloodlines in them as possible to preserve as much of those bloodlines for generations to come.

originally imported by Dr. Stephenson in the
1960's directly from William Humphrey
and his grandson Chris Sorenson and
were kept from the public for nearly 30 years.
The King's did get some putr Humphrey
bred Setters in the 1960's as well and
continued them for many years, but
with OLN's Hank's popularity, they
were crossed with Fr. Brannon's
bloodline and became almost extinct in
the pure form and it took us several
years of hard work and expense to save
the 100% Humphrey form from
extinction. They are simply the best

The starting price is for all pups that are Black, & Ticked. This is the original and most common pure Llewellin Setter color.

Tri-Color is, Black, (Orange/Tan), & Ticked. Please add $50. extra for Tri-color.
It has taken many years of selective breeding to produce the beautiful White & Chestnuts (Liver) or White & Orange (Tan) in this strain, especially the Tri-Chestnut (White, Chestnut, Tan,& Ticked) so please add $50. extra if pup is a Chestnut or Orange in color and another $50. extra if a Tri-Chestnut.
Quad-Belton: We originally thought we
could see additional colors on
our Setters and thought they could have four
different colors, but after consulting with
canine geneticists and much research, the
consensus is that it is not genetically
possible! Shades of the same color do not
constitute a different color. Many Setters
have lighter color on ears, belly, and other
parts of their belly. Also new hair will be
darker than old hair. Just look at most
Irish Setters, which are solid Red, but can
have much lighter shades on ears, belly,

have Black and Chestnut on the same dog for
an example. Chestnut gave the addition of a
dilute gene, making Black appear Chestnut

present, all black pigment will be diluted

Attention Gun Owner's
Wanted on Trade?
Many people think that a certain color or pattern is what a Llewellin Setter is suppose to be. Some people think a Blue-Belton, others think an Orange masked and ticking and some others think they must be Chestnut or something else. The truth is NO color or markings define a Llewellin Setter or a Dashing Bondhu from English Setters. Mr. Llewellin and Mr. Humphrey, bred for performance, temperament, and genetic health, nothing else.
