From the Foster:

Chester is not your typical pointer, from what we understand about the breed. While he will excitedly go on a hike and run around, he’s not the athletic hunting dog you’d think a pointer would be. He’s floppy and derpy, a little uncoordinated, not quite able to keep up with our Blue Heeler all the time, but he gives it a shot! Then he drops like a rock after exercise, often going belly up for his impending snooze! The rest of the time, he lazily flops on the floor and lays around, maybe chewing on a bone or toy here and there. He’s super happy and loves all people, will lay wherever you are but also let you have space to work. He sometimes jumps up when really excited, but it is gentle and becoming less frequent. Chester rides in the car well and hardly pulls on leash unless he’s trying to keep up with our other dog. He plays well with her and responds to cues when she has had enough, and responds well to our redirections, as well. He hasn’t exhibited aggression over toys or food (our dog is the bossy one) and he has met other dogs well in public. We have not tested him with cats yet, but he ignores all of the small animals our dog notices   Chester goes into his kennel easily when we are gone. The first couple of nights we tried him in there and he whined for a few minutes, then settled down. Since then, however, he has been free in our room overnight with no problems! Chester has had a couple of #1 accidents in the house in the first few days, but is now doing well learning what potty outside means. We are just making sure to let him out often and when he is standing at our back door. And he does not shed a lot, which is always a plus!
