Origin of the breed
It goes back to the old type of Italian pointer which, originally, arrived in Hispania with the Romans, establishing itself in the area between the north of the province of Lusitania and the south-east of what is now France, with morphological changes in the different geographic regions.
Given its characteristics, it is an excellent animal as a show dog and a good retriever, working on land as well as in water.
