The German Shorthaired Pointer is an excellent all-round gun dog, yet equally at home in the show ring or as a family pet. As a breed, the GSP is energetic, easy to train, and very affectionate.
As the name suggests, the German Shorthaired Pointer (or Jaghund) originally came from Germany, where it was bred as a working dog. The breed became more recognised in the UK after the 2nd World War when they were brought back to Britain by returning troops.
The GSPs were first registered in their own right by the Kennel Club in 1954 and the following year the breed was granted ‘Championship’ status at the annual show.

The Bracco Italiano is a rare breed of medium-size, and is a member of the HPR (Hunt, Point and Retrieve) category. Coming originally from Italy, the Bracco is an ancient hunting breed and it’s origins date back to the 4th or 5th Century.
Braccos are full of character, are gentle and friendly, good with children and make exceptional pets. If you are looking for a gun dog, a family pet or a dog to show, a Bracco Italiano puppy is an excellent choice.
Braccos come in two main colours: orange or chestnut. Both can have varying amounts of white or roaning, but are never solid colours.
Emma now has a new website for her Braccos … you can read all about Emma and her Bracco Italianos here.
