Pointer Dog Breed

Pointer Dogs

The first Pointers of which there is any dependable record appeared in England about 1650. As to the Pointer's lineage, as usual we find it something of an enigma, but there is no question that the Foxhound, Greyhound and Bloodhound all had a share in his making. He certainly possesses the competitive spirit to a greater degree than is usually found in the other bird dogs, a quality that makes him especially suited to public performance.

This dog comes by his name honestly. It has a tendency towards early development. He needs less attention than most dogs, but needs at least one hour of exercise daily, and as a working dog will readily work for someone other than his owner. A true friend of man.
