Depending on what you want out of a dog, They could have many of advantages. A GSP has few disadvantages!!!!! Are you looking at a dog/pup from our area???? I am going chukar hunting saturday, if you are wanting to get one and want to see the advantages PM me, of course we will be going to your spot.
Advantages/disadvantages as opposed to what? A Lab?? A clean cut pretty pointer?? Something that doesn't look like it just crawled out of Grizzly Adams beard?? :lol: I think they're kinda cool looking but other than that, I know nothing about them..... I do like shorthairs.... so maybe its all the benefits of the shorthair with a little added protection and toughness because of their coat or something?? o-|| o-||
Sorry, I read this as Wirehairs, not shorthairs..... my fault.
What do you want to know about them? There is no disadvantages to them compared to any other pointing breed.
In fact there may more advantages.
GSP's can be very versitle.
There are many lines to choose from in GSP's. Big running hard hunting dogs to short range grouse dogs. Decide what you want then ask.
Jumpy birds can be handled by GSP's very easy. They learn real fast to stand them off a long ways. Sharptail are a classic example of a bird a dog needs to stand a long ways off.
