Pega joined our home at the beginning of August 2020.
We were searching for a dog that will be active by nature, will be suitable for search and rescue work, and most importantly, will be our partner in crime in everyday life!
And here she is.. Crazy, lovely and super active manipulator of our hearts.
Inappropriate and inconvenient
Thanks to Google we found this interesting breed and thanks to Facebook I’ve managed to find breeders in Portugal and UK who were willing to answer all my questions.
These lovely boxer-labrador-vizsla look-alike dogs are an energetic and affectionate breed. As a hunting dog, Portuguese pointers are enthusiastic and dedicated. They work in close contact with their handlers and are known to be devoted companions, sometimes to the point of being “inappropriate and inconvenient” in their affections. While very sociable and dedicated to their owner.
Having a dog that literally moves in 3D is quite a new thing for me.. but it is slowly getting a new normal. I just need to apologize to people we meet more often, as her original name is ‘Ups’.
``Sometimes, she’s a crazy dog.
Sometimes, she’s the best dog you’ve ever seen.
On the other days, she has to be both.``
