Hi
I'm new to this site but was looking for a GWP X Lab pup and this site came up. I was wondering if any one knows of any litters due this year? I live in the south west but am willing to travel as nearly all of this breed seems to be in the north of the country and on the borders.
I currently work a German Longhaired Pointer and was looking to get a pure bred GWP but these have really taken my fancy. I haven't seen them working but have heard lots of good things about them. The parents must be good working parents and not an accidental mating.

I've not heard of this cross before. How do most people who have them work them? (ie peg dogs? rough shooters dogs? pointers? etc etc)

General purpose gun-dog/hunting/tracking/marking,, Definitely not a peg dog... to me they are the perfect 'beaters pointer'. And when not beating should help with any vermin issues etc.

Seen some cracking pointer lab crosses, again on the hill. That's where they will specialise, seemed to have endless stamina and very pacy, could go all day.

Pre ban, they could also knack a fox without too much fuss.

If I was doing a lot of grouse beating etc it would be my dog of choice.

What they like temperament wise? I'd imagine they're fairly chilled out (independant and not neurotic) but a serious animal in their work? Less of a headache than a spaniel?

 

General opinion seems to be they are custom made keepers dogs for hill country, but how do they fair in lowlands? How would they do on your average English shoot with lots of hedgerows, thorns and large arable fields? Something that is traditionaly spaniel territory.....

I’ve just got a few month old pup of this cross but my experience with seeing & being around other peoples:

 

they are generally chilled out as you said and independent hunters, Good nose and hard hunting.

 

Some can be a bit grumpy when crammed into a beaters wagon but that can be true of any dog of any breed so couldn't hold that against them as a bad characteristic.

 

 The examples I’m talking from are grouse dogs that have been left to hunt for possibly a few miles in a big drive so range a bit far for your average pheasant keeper to tolerate in his drive but if its sharp on the re-call they’d be fine I'd imagine.

 

They don’t seem too fussed about getting a bite so think they would shrug off thorns, and could cover large fields in a lollop faster than any spaniel . But if you trained it for working in close then I can’t see why they wouldn’t hand a spaniel its p45.

I really like them and have wanted one for years before I got mine, will have to see how good a job I make of him to see if I'll have another, people seem to love them and not be without one (I know a guy that had six) OR have one and never another!
