The Burgos Pointer (Spanish: Perdiguero de Burgos), also called the Burgalese Pointer, is a breed of dog native to Spain. Originating from Castile, especially in the province of Burgos, this hardy breed is used for hunting and has some outstanding features for small game.
History and origin of the breed
It is an ancient breed dating back to the 16th century and originating in the Castilian plateau, which is very widespread. It is very probable that the breed participated in the creation of other races of this group.
The figure of the Burgos Pointer is perhaps not so style crystallized as other breeds in their group (such as the English Pointer), but conveys a clear sense of robustness thanks to its port square. Things to note are their long ears and two folded sheets in the form of double chin. The tail is usually cut off a third of its original length.
Colour: It has two color variations: one where the basic color is stained and/or combined with other brown and brown, where the basic color is brown which is, in this case, white spottled.
Coat: The fur is short, bushy and smooth.
Height: Males from 62 to 67 centimetres (24 to 26 inches) and females from 59 to 64 centimetres (23 to 25 inches).
Weight: 25 to 30 kilograms (55 to 66 pounds).
If kept in its natural environment of care that requests are rare, given its perfect adaptation to its environment. Like so many other breeds of hunting dogs require daily exercise and large doses of wide open spaces where they run.
It is a gentle and quiet dog who is rarely easily startled. It is not a dog that fits well in urban environments.
It is intelligent and learns easily it comes to their job hunting.
Like many other breeds of this group, this is a dog hunter, used in exclusive countryside environments, and has not been used in other purposes. Within this hunting breed is described as "trace and shows" (by its smell so). It is used for both hunting hair (rabbits, hares, etc.). and feather (birds). It is perfect for hunting in any terrain (hard as it is) because it has an enviable physical endurance and speed.
