Pointers are very high energy dogs and constantly think about hunting and tracking. They are also extremely sweet, love to cuddle, play with other pets, and enjoy the company of other humans.

They are a very independent, loyal, and responsive breed--they respond well to scolding and are extremely intelligent.
