Meet ARTI – an unusual Braque St Germain.    Although this translates as a “pointer” they were originally intended – like the Weimaraner or the Viszla – to do all the tasks in the hunting field.  This makes them wonderful as companion dogs as they are great all-rounders.   They are described as having a temperament which is Affectionate, Sociable, Companionable, Trainable, Passionate, Familial.   We can certainly say that ARTI has shown us those traits during his time in foster with us.

Arti is friendly, loving and very handsome.  He’s a young and lively lad on off-lead (!!!) walks, but is calm indoors, happy to snuggle up with you. Arti is good with bitches, needs a little management with male dogs (currently living with 3 others) as he can be a little possessive of food and his favourite human, but, saying that, he loves playing with them. He ignores livestock, but has not been cat-tested.
ARTI would be comfortable as an only dog or with a small “pack”.  Like all intelligent dogs he needs to have clear boundaries, combined with plenty of exercise of body and brain.  So ARTI’s ideal family would be walk-loving, dog-experienced, not too afraid to let him off the lead in a safe, country environment after a 2/3 weeks of settling time. He is currently running off-lead during his walks – far better than expected.  This is hugely important for expending energy and his fosterer says “he knows how to trace me back if he has ‘lost’ me”.  That of course is the “retriever” part of his breeding.
