Dear Sir/ Madam,

My name is George and I am from Cyprus. I like hunting and I had a dog which now is dead. She was to old.

I would like a new puppy from this dog but I don't know what race was because she was mixed of races.

I hope you can help me with this to find the right race:
- She has the special characteristic, something different from other dogs. When she fill a rabbit or a bird she do a cicle around that and she push with this active the bird to me.. So, this was useful to catch it.

I apologize for my english and I hope to match this with a dog.

King Regards
George Georgiou

I will attempt to re-write what was written by George Georgiou from Cyprus:

"My dog died of old age. She was a mixed breed animal. She hunted in a special way. When she found a rabbit or a bird, she would circle around and herd the rabbit or bird towards me. This helped me get it. I want to get a new puppy. Are there breeds or lines of dogs known to hunt this way?"

Hi George,
Do you have a picture of your dog? I would like to see her. What kind of birds do you have in Cypress?

First of all I want to thank you BigShooter for the re-write of my bad english written text.

I have a picture only when she was puppy. However, I can discripe some of her characteristics.

- she had a medium nose
- Small ears
- her back was shorter than her chest ( I mean like german shepherd for example )
- her eyes was different than other gun dogs. They look like smarter, they lock you, something like german shepherd.
- her color was dark brown and she had a white line on her chest and her finger was white too.
- her back feed was thiner than the front feed.

I dont know if you need more details.

In cyprus we have:
- partridges,
- farsa(in greek) it looks like pigeon but is green with a cicle on its neck.
- few ducks
- and some bird of passage. Cyprus is in the mediterranean sea and has a good weather. So, it is a good station for them.
