A true English hunting breed, the Pointer is an agile, athletic dog that is proud and elegant. He has a powerful, muscular body that gives him a noble confidence in the field. He also is a suitable family companion that is affectionate and protective at home. The enthusiastic, intelligent Pointer needs ample exercise and mental stimulation, and his smooth, dense coat requires minimal grooming.
