The Pointer is a large dog with a sturdy build, long legs, and a handsome appearance. He has an eager and intelligent expression, and his coat his short, smooth, and dense. The coloring of the Pointer can vary and includes lemon and white, orange and white, black and white, liver and white, tri-colored, and solid. In terms of weight the Pointer reaches around 40-65 pounds for females and around 5-0-75 pounds for males. The height of the Pointer is around 23-26 inches for females, and around 25-28 inches for males.

Lively and independent, the Pointer is an alert and courageous animal that can make a fine family pet and companion. These dogs love to work, and are determined, enthusiastic, and have plenty of stamina. Full of energy, the Pointer is a dog that loves to play and join in with various family activities, and thrives on the love and affection of his family. These dogs are not suitable for inactive families, as they do need a lot of exercise. He also needs attention, as neglect can lead to boredom and destructive behavior. He can sometimes be stubborn and hard headed, which can make training more challenging, but with the right attitude using assertive and positive methods you will find that training this breed shouldn't prove too much of a problem.

The Pointer will get along well with gentle children and when brought up with kids, and also tends to get along well with other pets. They can be a little reserved around strangers, but will usually be polite. The Pointer is a responsive dog that is eager to please, and does not normally display dominance over other animals or people. The Pointer can make an excellent pet and companion for those with gentle children, other pets, and enough time on their hands to dedicate to a loving and affectionate pet.

The Pointer originated in Spain where he was known as the Spanish Pointer. These dogs were far heavier than the Pointers of today. After their arrival in England around 1700, they were crossed with Italian Pointers which produced the Pointer as he is known today. Pointers in North America can be traced back to the Civil War period. Named for the work he does — pointing game for the hunter — he has always been a hard-driving hunting dog and a top contender in field trials.
If you are considering a Pointer puppy, or any breed, it is very important to be selective in choosing a responsible and reputable breeder. Ensure that the prospective puppy's parents have all health clearances. Breeding of any dog should not be done until after they have been proven to be free of evidence of significant hereditary diseases.
