    I just adopted this fella, and I do know what he is. [​IMG]
    But wondering if anyone else knows. I'll give more info on him in a bit. [​IMG]

    He also needs a new name! I hate his old one. [​IMG]
    We like unusual names. Was thinking Bosch and Strupy. Hubby is German and suggest Strupy cause of his hair. But I am not set on them. They just don't feel like HIS name. KWIM?

    LOL Shelly you cheated! [​IMG]

    Yes he is a Pointing Griffon. [​IMG]

    The lady I got him from is trying to find out where her son got him from. He went searching for an unusual dog to one-up his exwife. [​IMG] He left the dog crated all day and then got mad at the dog for being hyper.
    He is almost 11 months old. Some training but needs a lot of proofing. Very well mannered around people and other dogs.
    He is interested in the birds. But he is a bird hunting dog. So we will have to work on leaving them alone and tuning his nose to something else. He has never been around birds before.

    But a name... [​IMG]

    I like the name Bosch, it really kinda suits him. Oh, can I have him? [​IMG]
    He is awesome. I've had hounds and with a training he might be fine with the birds, but I would watch him closely. He is beautiful.
