Liesa is our black and white girl.  Yes, German Shorthair Pointers do come in black and white as well as solid black.  In Germany, black and white are not only in the standard but are sought after dogs.  Liesa is full of drive in the field and lives to find waterfowl. Her waterworks, and determination make it impossible for the loss of wounded game.  She is a medium sized female (60 cm, 25.5 kg (56 lbs)), with nice bone, and a typical female Shorthair head.  A solid black head and patched butt, with a very open white body makes her pleasing to the eye and easy to spot in the field while hunting.  Liesa is very biddable, good in the house, and great with children.

At the Ottawa Valley Pointing Dog Club pointing dog speciality, in August 2013, she was shown in conformation, took a 2nd and 3rd place finish in Rally Novice, took first in the Field Dog class hunt test, and tied for the top field score of the CKC Field Test day.  This allowed her to accumulate the most points of all dogs entered over the weekend, giving her the title of OVPDC 2013 Most Versatile Dog!   At the same field test, Issy also took best German Shorthair Pointer.  All that in a young career, and an absolute pleasure to have around the home.
