i'm looking for a dog that will be happy to go out and go duck and upland bird hunting with me, and be a good companion for our 10 month old chocolate lab.
i would like a decent size dog, not to hard to train, and not gun shy, it'll probably be a girl.
my cousin has a pure bred black lab and she's a beautiful dog but she's gun shy, his brother has a lab/german shorthair pointer mix and she loves to fetch and we took her bird hunting and she pointed a couple of times instead of just flushing.
anyway, hit me with some suggestions.
EDIT: it also needs to be able to survive in a temperature range of about 30-110 degrees.
EDIT: #2 i think i narrowed it down to a german short haired pointer/ lab mix, or
got a puppy, named him ruger.
