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.
