This is an English Pointer. There are short- and wire-haired German Pointers as well, but I chose this sort because they are the breed I meet in the woods with my little dog. They have wonderful, domed heads that are very strokeable. My favourite is called Nelson. He's not overly keen on other dogs, but likes people. The first time I met him, he came up and leaned his whole body against mine by way of greeting, which was super-friendly by anybody's standards.
