Hunting Dog Type

Like the shepherd dog, the hunting dog enjoys the almost absolute freedom during certain seasons of the year. Hunters themselves, who are many times wrongly-informed, sometimes allow irrational crosses; for that reason, many bastard dogs have developed on the field. Depending on the parents that have prevailed in the production, many examples of these dogs are similar to the segugio, the setter, the pointer, the bracco and have similar behaviors to the breeds. Anyway, that medieval custom of crossing dogs, just because they are "good hunters" is not advisable. In first place, because it is not true that good qualities are transmitted with mathematical certainty, and in second place, because an experienced hunter, must possess specialized dogs in the different hunting activities and not impure specimen, and for any kind of labor, which, when they do not prove to be satisfactory, are abandoned after the hunting season.

Companion dog type. In this section, we could categorize a whole lot of half-breed dogs to which many breeds have transmitted a characteristic: from the boxer to the poodle, from the dachshund to the pinscher, from the cocker to the Maltese. In every case the possible (or impossible) identification depends on the morphological information that each animal presents. The short legs, the long body, the reddish straight fur, mean a close relationship with the dachshund. A sturdy body, short stout and black face mean that there is a closer relationship to the boxer. If the dog weighs around six kilos, is 30 to 35 centimeters tall, has short reddish fur, and is lively, then you can suppose it probably descends from a pinscher or a German terrier.
