Long ago, the people of the province of Friesland in the Netherlands used a versatile, intelligent sporting dog at home and in the field. The Stabyhoun, also called the Frisian Pointer, is thought to have descended from spaniels brought in by the Spanish during the mid 1500s. The Stabyhoun (pronounced “Stah-BYE-houn”), served as an all-purpose farm dog, hunter, watchdog, and draft dog. The Stabyhoun was officially approved as a breed in the Netherlands in 1942. The breed is rare outside the Netherlands, but gradually gaining more attention in the United States.

Today, the Stabyhoun remains versatile, excelling at a number of activities, including agility, flyball, hunting, tracking, and more. This devoted, gentle breed is a loyal and affectionate family member, but some are a bit reserved with strangers. It stands 19 to 21 inches tall at the shoulder, and weighs 38 to 55 pounds.

The Stabyhoun has straight, long, smooth hair that is slightly bushy on the backs of its forelegs, on its breeches and on its long tail. The hair on its head is short, but its drop ears feature typical spaniel-like feathering. The easy-care coat tends to stay clean, needing just weekly brushing and infrequent bathing. Stabyhouns have little to no doggie smell. This brown-eyed hunter comes in black, brown or orange with white markings (sometimes ticked or roaned).
