Pictured here, out of Cedarwood Kennels, is seven-week-old SADIE, a pudelpointer

I do not believe there was a dog that Dave did not like and we hunted behind not only our American water spaniels and Gordon setter, but also all of Dave's dogs, from the more common Labs and setters to the more unusual pudelpointer

Some of the more common breeds classed as versatile are the German shorthaired pointer, German wirehaired pointer, wirehaired pointing griffon, vizsla, Weimaraner and pudelpointer
