Syracuse Dog Kennel
When I first started to think about working in a Syracuse dogI decided to find out all I could about and dog breeds. Wow, what a surprise. I had no idea how many different types and breeds of there is. One really cool breed I read about is the Perdiguero Navarro, or Old Spanish Pointer. The Perdiguero Navarro, or Old Spanish Pointer, is, together, with the Spanish Water Dog, the likely ancestral gun dog. This dog is the link between the scenthounds and the gun . I believe that this breed is the dog that is basically where scenthounds transform into gun , just as the Spanish Water Dog is where herding transform into gun . These two very different breeds are the two seeds from which the gun dog family has sprung. The Perdiguero Navarro is a very energetic and determined hunting dog. It has existed since the 1100s and is probably descended from the Talbot Hound and the Southern Hound. For all those centuries it has been delighting hunters and gamesmen in northern Spain with its great desire to please, its untiring energy, and its wonderful nose. It is the original pointing dog and it makes a superb tracker. This breed has been on the verge of extinction for the better part of two centuries but has persisted in rural Spain. Today it has been rediscovered by enthusiasts of Spanish breeds and huntsmen, who are breeding this delightful, split-nosed dog, and it is beginning to make a comeback once again. Well I now work in the Syracuse dog and really enjoy being around all these different breeds and even though they aren't all pure bred I still love them all.
