The Pointer is affectionate, intelligent and clean; it is wise and
adaptable to every situation. It is an energetic and enthusiastic
hunter, yet calm at home. It makes a good companion to children;
it is patient, tolerant, kind, playful and loving. Socialization
at an early age is a must; obedience training is strongly recommended.
It tends to be a bit willful, distractible and reserved with strangers;
it will bark at suspicious noises. Hunting instincts develop early;
puppies even at eight weeks old often display pointing behavior.

is not usually dog aggressive. This breed has excellent endurance
in warm weather, but is not suited to very cold conditions; working

Pointer is a family hunting dog and companion. This dog is tireless
