Origin of the English Pointer

It is believed that the pointer has Spanish roots. From there, his ancestors were taken to Britain by soldiers, where they eventually became attractive and efficient hunting dogs.

Good to know: Because of their time in England, they are also called “English Pointers”. His ancestors include greyhounds, foxhounds, and French hounds.

The pointer is also known as the pioneer of pointing dogs. They have been used in Europe to catch games since the 17th century.

Their excellent pointing ability is of great benefit to hunters, which is why this trait has been constantly passed on and refined through breeding.
