The basics:
RightPet does not advocate the intentional cross-breeding of purebred dogs. But the reality is that most dogs available for adoption at shelters and rescues are mixed breeds. We think it might be helpful to hear from owners of these mixes to see what traits can be found in these dogs who are desperately needing homes.

All mixed breeds are individuals but if you have a dog that appears to be mostly Pointer, expect it to have a lot of DNA from an active, energetic hunting dog that loves to roam outdoors in search of winged prey. This mix could be perfect for the hiker or outdoor jogger, but it may become bored or destructive if you don't have time to exercise with your pet.

Appearance / health:
All mixed-breed dogs can vary in appearance, but in general with the Pointer mix you can expect a slim, muscular hunting dog that demands a minimum of grooming.

Behavior / temperament:
It's impossible to predict the exact traits inherited by a mixed-breed dog. However, as a general rule, with the Pointer mix, you have to expect a dog with a deep instinct to hunt and chase down birds. This is not the right pet for the parrot owner.
