Spanish Pointer

These well balanced, calm dogs have an excellent character blending gentleness and intelligence, conveyed in a very noble expression.

About the Spanish Pointer

Spanish Pointers are good-sized, short-haired dogs with a well developed head, hanging ears, a compact torso and solid legs. Almost square in build, they need to be well-proportioned and harmonious when standing and moving.

The Spanish Pointer is a hardy breed that can work on any type of terrain, hunting any type of game. Spanish Pointers are obedient, solid and, above all, endowed with a keen sense of smell and excellent hunting skills, thanks to their calm and assurance on the trail, and their impeccable pointing and retrieving.
