German Shorthaired Pointers

Steve has always had animals and dogs in particular (he is the Dr Doolittle of Echuca Village). He bought Hayleigh (FT Ch Alderbrook Hayleigh) from Russell Benson in 1984. She gained more than 75 points towards her Show title but Steve being the hunter that he is, never bothered to get those last few points. Hayleigh won the 1988 National Field Trial, several Victorian & New South Wales State Field Trial Championships and numerous All Age & Open Field Trials. She was also successful in retrieving trials where she won at Novice level and placed at Restricted level. She was a mad hunting dog even when she had torn the tendon from her shoulder she wanted to keep hunting. She would work tirelessly all day. This trait is still there in her progeny.

And so the German Shorthaired Pointer side of Pointgold began.
