LIMITED INFORMATION
A Portuguese Pointer, (Portuguese: Perdigueiro Português) is a breed of dog developed as
a gun dog. It is one of several pointing breeds and is mainly used in Red-legged Partridge
hunting. The Portuguese pointer (perdigueiro Português) arose from the ancient Iberian
hunting dogs with his presence in Portugal traceable to the early Twelfth Century. Initially the
dog was bred in the royal kennels and later became a very popular hunting dog for the lower
classes of society. In the Eighteenth Century, many English families established a presence
in the region of Oporto in the business of wine production and came to know the Portuguese
hunting breed which was taken to England where they played a part in the origin of the
English pointer. However, during the Nineteenth Century when Portugal was experiencing
considerable social hardships, the breed began a progressive decline. It was not until the
1920's when some breeders made an effort to salvage the breed by locating some of the
ancient Portuguese dogs in the inaccessible north of Portugal. The Portuguese pedigree
book was then established in 1932 and breed standard in 1938. For at least a thousand
years, this dog has always had the same square head, a marked stop, triangular ears and
compact look.
