One of Angels puppies was Embark DNA tested, and it showed Angel as being:
German Shorthair Pointer
Angel is is cute, sweet, and extremely loving. She wants nothing more than to be with her person at all times. She has yet to meet a human stranger and is welcoming to all. The vet’s office and other new situations can cause some nervousness, but she recovers well with reassurance from her person. She barks at fireworks and tries to find them. Angel rides well crated in the car and only whines from time to time. Angel is also very interested in chasing birds, poultry, cats, rabbits and squirrels she encounters outside.
Angel is still working on mastering his basic obedience and house manners. She is praise and food motivated and only requires soft correction. Due to her sensitivity, she lacks focus and can shut down so patience, love, and repetition are the keys to her success. Clear, consistent boundaries and structure have been working well in foster to mitigate her urge to jump up on people. She now has mastered ‘off’, and only needs a gentle reminder to not jump up on rare occasions. Angel has done well meeting the foster's male dog and would probably be fine living with another neutral male.
Her ideal home would be with an easygoing, patient person or couple well versed in establishing and enforcing a training routine. Angel would best be matched by someone willing to have plenty of structure and who likes a Velcro dog. Given the opportunity to share your world, she will undoubtedly give you hers.
