Animalcouriers travelled to Italy to collect 11 Pointer pups from Pesaro, all heading to families in the UK. The puppies were bred by Luigi and Gigi, who love the German Shorthaired Pointer breed and are devoted to their dogs. All that love and devotion shine through — the mother of these puppies was a Crufts winner in her category last year, and all the pups were absolutely delightful.

As are Luigi and Gigi themselves, who were super welcoming towards our couriers, Shane and Ryan. Shane told us:

“Luigi and his family were outstanding. The place itself was 5 star and the organisation in regards to paperwork and quality of dogs was second to none. What a credit to them all, and a big thank you to Gigi who invited us in for a traditional Italian lunch, which was out of this world and all home made. Their hospitality and welcoming attitude were amazing — all I can say is a big thank you 🙏 and I would recommend you and the breed to anyone!”
