Is it common for people to breed English pointers and setters together? I have one that I picked up from a rescue but supposedly came from people who were purpose breeding. Personally I think this dogs a nut case. I had a dna test run and she is mainly EP with about 1/3 Llewellin/Irish. Whatever they were trying to breed they really overdid it with this litter. I don't bird hunt so she's not being trained on birds so I can't say for sure what potential she would have but I've watched her jump into the air to catch and kill (and eat) birds. Don't think that's how it works hahahaha. Anyways is this mix typically a recipe for disaster?
