I own and adore a pointer whippet cross - she is softer in temperament and smaller size (males were large and heavy though) . her parents regularly hunted deer - took one down on the property the day I picked her up. She will point to anything in the bush - also very fast and can catch field rabbits. has stamina for all day work, but will sleep if no job to do. markings are black and white roan/white pattern. She is like a pointer at play and a whippet at home - a sweetheart who will rest all day like a good whippet should when not running - very intelligent and will look for any toy I hide if I ask her to find. Also have a red merle lurcher/shepherd - also an excellent dog with water rescue instincts - they are both very strong swimmers and will water retrieve until exhaustion if I don't make them stop.
