Everyone has been so helpful as I consider whether I should get a GSP... so here's a video of him playing. Darn... he's so darn cute!
Yes, I believe he is a mix, too. The rescue thinks he MIGHT have some dalmatian in him? English pointer makes sense too, from afar. I don't much care that he is not pure... he might have a bit more "mellow" mixed in!
They sent another video. He seems to play very gently with the little dogs and not a single bark to be heard:
Oh my gosh . . . I don't think you can go wrong with him. No doubt he will be entertaining and that alone tells me he has some GSP in him, probably not 100% GSP but what a personality.
He plays just like a pointer. In Fact Hanna plays with other dogs with the same energy and cuteness. She is Miss Congeniality at the dog park . When I began my ernest search for a pointer puppy I found a breeder who bred both liver and white and black and white. I saw black and white variations similar to the mostly white and liver GSP's
Because of the way he is marked its difficult to see the pointed knob at the top of the head which is so typical of GSP's Hanna's ears are a bit shorter that the norm and that makes her looks a bit non typical. She got papers so she's the real deal. The docked tail is a good indicator that someone would take a puppy to a vet to have it done.Hes not been altered I believe so he may have even been considered for breeding. Hanna's father was soild black with white on the chest .I'm no expert but have seen enough to know there are no two diamonds a like. to make a judgement call to say hes not a pure bred GSP.
His body is muscled just like Hannas and he looks to be about the same size. Hanna is smaller than my last female which I absolutely love . Hannas holding at 45lbs.
I like the way he plays and he looks very solid and healthy.If your not fussy about the colour or markings the way I am I'd grab him for a tryout at the very least.
