GERMAN SHORTHAIRED POINTER
The German Shorthaired Pointer is a medium-large sized breed of dog developed in the 19th century in Germany for hunting. The coat is short and flat with a dense undercoat protected by stiff guard hairs making the coat water resistant and ideal for cold weather. The breed is streamlined yet powerful with strong legs that enable it to move rapidly and turn quickly. The muzzle is long, broad, and strong, allowing it to retrieve even heavy game. The tail is commonly docked. The correct location for docking for GSP is after the caudal vertebrae start to curl, leaving enough tail to let the dog communicate through tail wagging and movement. When the GSP is in classic point stance, the tail should be held straight out from the body forming a line with the pointing head and body.
ENGLISH SPRINGER SPANIEL
The English Springer Spaniel is a breed of gun dog in the Spaniel family traditionally used for flushing and retrieving game. The English Springer Spaniel is a medium-sized dog. Its coat is moderately long with feathering on the legs and tail. The coat comes in black or liver (dark brown) with white markings. It is an affectionate, good natured breed making it an ideal family member. Descended from the Norfolk or Shropshire Spaniels of the mid-19th century, the breed has diverged into separate show and working lines. It is closely related to the Welsh Springer Spaniel and very closely with the English Cocker Spaniel. They are used as sniffer dogs on a widespread basis. The term springer comes from the historic hunting role, where the dog would "spring" (flush) birds into the air.
