The bird dog that could do it all, trailing, scent, pointing, retrieving, and even killing. This dog was bred to be the all purpose hunting dog, derived from English and Spanish stock. A close relative is the German Longhaired Pointer, but it is not quite as fast.
These dogs require mental and physical activity to prevent them from being destructive. They are very energetic and can be vocal. While not considered to be good with cats or other small animals, they are good with children and people in general.
