I'm gonna say something here that is not very politically correct and will irritate some people.

I have adopted 2 and been around 5 or 6 other adopted dogs. They all come with "issues" . They will not show up at first and usually at that magic 3 week mark. Unless you are the dog whisperer, changing them can be near dang impossible (older dogs). Just a fair warning. Now if you get a puppy that is under say 14 weeks or so you are probably OK. Not saying they all have problems but there is a special imprinting period for a dog that is hard to overcome. This is a bit hard to articulate over the computer and I am a huge dog person. I hate all the craigslist ads that people put on getting rid of dogs because they had a kid or something, its disgusting. I know they all need homes, but just be prepared.

We have settled on the German Shorthaired pointer for my dad's christmas present. Now we are just looking for a gsp puppy.

I still bear the scar on my cheek from my best friend's gsh. That was 50 years ago.

I wouldn't have one. I hope your dad likes his Christmas present.

"Puppy Finder" is very expensive! I found the prices to be extremely inflated on that site. I do not know if it is because of the commission or what.......

Yes, $1400 is expensive. Though with that breed it may be an issue of supply. AKC should also have a list of breeders. Be sure to check the "genetic disorders" for that breed, and make sure the breeder has screened the parents for them.

Here is a list of puppies that I am looking through. Its hard trying to look through them like which ones might be to good to be true and which ones are over priced.

Owned, might I suggest you ask around about some bird hunters in your area. These guys will have dogs and generally breed their own replacements. They will be of good working stock and will not be as pricey. We raised pointers when I was a child ,we quail hunted and has a couple litters a year. People would snap up the puppies because of the reputation of the line. All of this was before major puppy mills. I'm not sure of your location but if you have a local small animal vet he/she will probably know of someone.
