While little is certain about the Portuguese Pointer’s origins, there is little doubt of the breed’s talents. These intelligent dogs display a very strong work ethic and are surprisingly cunning, pointing firmly when they pick up the scent. They adopt a special pose characterized by contracted face, fixed gaze, pricked ears, motionless head, straight tail and one raised foreleg. Once they have the smell of the game in their nose they can be totally indifferent to what’s going on around them.
