No longer commonly worked as a gundog, this breed retains the serious personality of a dog bred to behave unnaturally: to track and locate its quarry and then simply freeze, historically permitting the greyhounds to chase and capture, latterly allowing the hunter to shoot. The English Pointer has a kindly and biddable, although sometimes rather sensitive, disposition. It is stoic about life, easy to train, and great with children.
