Default Can you Identify this dog breed?

My 11 year buddy (yellow lab) is doing well but I am starting to think of an addition. I found this picture in a magazine and was wondering if any of you can tell me what the breed of the dog is. Nice looking dog and looks like it might be a bit smaller than a lab.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks!

The dog in the picture is a field trial type English Setter.

Yes, it's an English Setter! They are nice upland game dogs with great noses!

I believe it is a Llewellin Setter like my dog Abby! There several color phase. Abby is a Chestnut Belton, I believe the dog in the picture would be a Blue Belton. This dog does not have the heavily feathered tail but some hunters trim the hair closer during hunting season to prevent the build up of burs and the such.

Thanks for all the replies. After looking on the internet for "llewellin", that seems to be the one. Thanks for the reminder vetspet on the hip problems.
