Male Pointer Question

3 posts in this topic

I bought a 9 month old female GSP the other day. The guy that had her said he would "throw" in a 4 year old male GSP. He is of the same breeding as the female just a little older. Here's my question, maybe two. He has spent the better part of his life in a outdoor kennel. First, after he gets use to his new surroundings, is he trainable? Second, if I had him neutered, will that affect his performance? Assuming he has any. The only thing that seems to get him "excited" now is the female. All he is interested in doing is mounting her. Thanks

so I take it he was just used for stud?? has he hunted at all?? at 4 years old he will be a little more difficult to train. he will have developed his habits/routines that may be hard to change. I'd be careful. if he had any experience and was nuetered, I'd tell you I'd take him!! lost my gsp this spring, but don't want to do the puppy thing at this point in my life with young kids. good luck with whatever you decide

See if you can take the dog out for a test run. It will not take long to tell if the dog has natural hunting ability. Run him on a check cord before you let him run so you can see how the dog handles the woods.

    •     If it gets here anytime in the near future, del is either going to have to start making trips to Mexico or go visit Dr Juice..      

    • I'm thinking the same thing, it's coming.
    •     As of 2013, (four years ago) 58 percent were in favor of legalizing marijuana too, and the FDA and DEA haven't even budged...   http://www.gallup.com/poll/165539/first-time-americans-favor-legalizing-marijuana.aspx
    •   1.  You don't have to be Michelangelo to know that Jackson Pollock was a terrible painter. 2.  Yes, that's 100% true. 
    •   Actually he is a hypocrite in 2 different ways.   1. He called out someone else's skill but was unwilling to show us how it is done. 2. He likely only called you out because you are a liberal picking on his republican buddy. If someone like Uncle Bill had made that picture he would have probably just "liked" it and moved on.
    • Don't forget, single payer is what Trump was backing many years ago. He may be angling to get it now.   Think about it. As far a partisan politics go, this would be a genius move for the republicans if the think tanks could come up with a way to spin it to the base.    Whatever party passes single payer will solidify at least a couple of consecutive presidential terms like the Democrats did.
    • I don't think he's a hypocrite, even though I question his skills as he failed to even identify the tool I poorly used.  He's just capable of identifying objectively poor photoshopping and a tool for pointing it out.  There isn't much that can change that.
    •   http://www.gallup.com/poll/191504/majority-support-idea-fed-funded-healthcare-system.aspx   58% are already in favor of single payer. I bet after last week's fiasco, those numbers go up even higher.
    •   Your candidate is turning out to be a deplorable human being, congratulations.     Neither would have Trump.     Just like Trump...     Remember, Trump was a Democrat at that same time.
    • Maybe not in 20 years.   I would be amazed if in my remaining lifetime.      I thought the article about how it works in Germany was interesting for those who still read actual words.      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Healthcare_in_Germany
