The Pointers are powerful, graceful and aristocratic dogs. The pointer carries its head proudly. It has an alert expression and a well-muscled, athletic body. This breed is bred primarily for sport and is a true wide-range hunter.
The Pointer is named for the motionless stance the dog assumes once it has found game; the direction of the point tells the hunter where the game is hiding. It gives the impression of compact power and agile grace. It is loyal, devoted and makes a true friend. Its energy and devotion makes it a superior as a gundog.
Lemon and white, orange and white, liver and white, black and white; self (pure) colors, and tricolors.
Short, dense and smooth. It is very easy to groom. Brush regularly with a firm bristle brush. Bathe only when necessary. A rub with a piece of toweling or chamois will leave the coat gleaming. This breed is an average shedder.
Prone to hip dysplasia, thyroid, dwarfism, and skin conditions. To minimize the risk of your Pointer developing any hereditary health issues, you should buy a dog from a reputable breeder.
