HISTORY
The Portuguese Pointer ( Perdigueiro Português),issued from the ancient peninsular hunting dogs defenitly appears in Portugal since the XIIth century. Initially the dog was bred in the kennels of those of the gentry and used to look and point for wounded game for falconry and for fowling-net. Since at least the XIIth century, the Perdigueiro was a very popular hunting dog and the lower classes of society used it widely to point and retrive game. As from the XVIIIth century, the British colony in Oporto took many of these excelent old portuguese pointers to England where they took a place in the origin of the english pointer. As from the XIXth century a period of considerable hardships for our social life, when a triumphant liberalism introduce new fashions and  ways imported abroad, the breed goes into a progressive decline. Starting the XXth century, did some breeders made an effort of recuperation of the ancient portuguese breed with pure dogs located in the inaccessible north of Portugal. The Pedigree book was set in 1932 and the Standart in 1938.
