Overview
Originating in Portugal in Royal kennels, the Portuguese Pointer is believed to have descended from dogs used by falconers in the 5th and 6th centuries. A popular hunting dog, this breed is considered to be extremely rare.
Character
The Portuguese Pointer is valued for its strong pointing, hunting, and retrieving instincts. A devoted hunting companion, this breed is an avid hunter over all types of terrain and in any climate. Portuguese Pointer's are used in the hunting of small and large game, particularly the gray partridge.
Temperament
The Portuguese Pointer breed is intelligent, faithful, attentive, and affectionate. They are excellent family companions that do well with children and other dogs.
Care
The Portuguese Pointer breed require regular brushing and combing. Ears must be checked often. The Portuguese Pointer is relatively healthy due to its rarity and limited human intervention.
Coat
The Portuguese Pointer breed's coat is coarse, dense, and short. The fur on the face and ears is slightly longer and has a velvet texture.
Training
Portuguese Pointer's require early obedience and socialization. They do best with a fair but firm owner. It is quite common for puppies to begin pointing and retrieving sticks with no formal training.
Activity
The Portuguese Pointer is not recommended for apartment living. This breed requires regular exercise and thrives on hunting and companionship.
Ownership
Help reduce the number of Portuguese Pointer puppies in shelters by doing your due diligence. Many puppies are often purchased with little or no knowledge of what goes into parenting one. Uneducated decisions often leave the puppy in need of adoption and in the care of rescue groups. Bringing home a puppy into your family has many benefits but we first implore you to educate yourself. An informed decision will take into account the characteristics of the breed, your lifestyle, expected veterinary care, the demands and limitations of owning one, their activity requirements and levels of companionship required.

Is the Portuguese Pointer dog good with cats?

If the dog is raised with cats, then he/she should be fine with cats. But if not, then I would be concerned as they have a high prey drive.
