English pointer


The pointer, sometimes known as the English pointer or British pointer, is a very specialist bird dog that is mainly used for dogging partridges in short agricultural crops or grouse on heather moors. Frequently worked as a brace, they come in several colour combinations including black and white, liver and white, lemon and white and orange and white, as well as self-coloured individuals.






Other dogs with the word "pointer" in their names, tend to be classified as HPR (Hunt, Point, Retrieve) breeds rather than as true pointers. Examples are the German short-haired pointer and German wire-haired pointer.
