    Brief Description: 

    A pointing dog of noble appearance, with harsh coat completely protecting the skin, with an attentive expression full of energy. The movement should be powerful, ground covering, flowing and harmonious. Firm, self-controlled, wellbalanced, without shyness of game, neither sensitive when shots are fired nor shy or aggressive.
