Small Munsterlander Pointer Puppies
Description: The Small Munsterlander Pointer is one of two varieties: small and large. Being smaller and more petite than the large, the Small Munsterlander was created from a cross of the Brittany and the German Long-haired Pointer of the 20th century. Small Munsterlander Pointers are well-balanced dogs that love the outdoors. They have medium length fur, which comes in a variety of shades and markings due to their history. They have "the setter's build and the spaniel's head", making them a handsome choice for an owner. Small Munsterlanders are described as sweet and sassy. They have a love for the outdoors, for water, and for activity. As well as moving about, the Small Munsterlander Pointer highly enjoys being with its family. It will do best if not kenneled and kept inside as a member of the family. They are energetic and happy dogs, doing their best to please their owners. Owners have noticed that when their Small Munsterlander is left alone for a while, the return of their family will bring a warm "talking" greeting from their Moonster and the retrieval of their owners' "treasured possessions." The Moonster, as it has been nicknamed, is an intelligent, friendly animal. They are friends with almost everyone, and are friendly with children and other pets. Sociable and affectionate, the Small Munsterlander Pointer is an excellent choice for an active, outdoorsy family who needs a dog to give a lot of love to!
