Friendly Smart, Willing to Please

German Shorthaired Pointers are versatile hunters and all-purpose gun dogs. Meaning they are outstanding on upland birds (quail, chukar, pheasants); waterfowl (retrieving ducks and geese over water); tracking deer and stage, and hunting game (boar, fox, etc.)

From the American Kennel Club

The German Shorthaired Pointer is a versatile hunter, an all-purpose gun dog capable of high performance in field and water. The judgment of Shorthairs in the show ring reflects this basic characteristic. The overall picture which is created in the observer's eye is that of an aristocratic, well balanced, symmetrical animal with conformation indicating power, endurance and agility and a look of intelligence and animation. The dog is neither unduly small nor conspicuously large. It gives the impression of medium size, but is like the proper hunter, "with a short back, but standing over plenty of ground." Symmetry and field quality are most essential.

 

 

The Goal of Ice and Fire Kennels is to work at maximizing each of these elements.
