Gun Dog Breeds covers breeds both popular and little known.

The coat of a Pointer is short, dense, smooth with a sheen. They are generally white with either liver, lemon, orange or black markings. Although pointers may have solid coloring in any of these hues, most Pointers are primarily white with some body markings.

Pointing dogs, sometimes called bird dogs, are a type of gundog typically used in finding game. Gundogs are traditionally divided into three classes: retrievers, flushing dogs, and pointing breeds. The name pointer comes from the dog's instinct. The name pointer comes from the dog's instinct to point, by stopping and aiming its muzzle towards game. This demonstrates to the hunter the location of their quarry and allows them to move into gun range. Pointers were selectively bred from dogs who had abundant pointing and backing instinct.

Fergus' bias toward flushing dogs shows through a bit, as he neglects to mention the pointing breeds' invaluable use in covering wide open tracts of land (which saves the hunter the task of doing so). Still, these are minor criticisms, and most first-time gun dog would likely be better of with a retriever or spaniel anyway, for reasons Fergus states

This is an excellent book. It is well-written and well-researched. Further, it addresses gun dog breeds for not just their efficiency in the field, but for their suitability as pets and housedogs as well as their foundational characters.

Mr. Fergus has done prospective gun dog owners and the dogs themselves a great service by enabling people to more appropriately choose the right dog.

The author seems to have very strong opinions about many things and I found that to be a turn-off. It was nice to see a little information about rarer sporting breeds towards the back of the book. I have many books that were more helpful than this one, but this book hit on the rarer breeds which was appreciated.
